Jeff Engel: Trump’s DACA announcement gives Congress a chance

Tower Center Senior Fellow Jeffrey Engel was interviewed on Fox 4 News to discuss President Trump’s announcement regarding DACA. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday that the Justice Department is ending the program, but gave Congress six months to potentially save it. Engel believes that Trump’s six-month deadline on Congress will help to push forward immigration reform in Congress, which prior administrations have struggled with.

“[Trump] is actually giving Congress a chance for that rare thing in Congress, which is a win,” Engel said.
