“Republicans are conflicted about Dreamers, the young immigrants who were brought here unlawfully as children. On the one hand, they oppose protections that they believe were enacted unconstitutionally without Congress, like the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. On the other hand, Republicans favor the policy of protecting Dreamers itself. In fact, a recent Morning Consult/Politico poll found three of four Trump voters support legal status for Dreamers. However, Republicans continue to debate about what the specifics of any proposal should look like.” (08/30/17)
