Today (Tuesday, September 6, 2017), the White House has formally announced the decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, affecting nearly 800,000 people who were brought to the US as children.

Below are resources and statements provided by the University of Illinois:
