Lewandowski Expects More 'Inaction' From Congress on DACA
The Trump administration announced on Tuesday it is ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The program, which provides a level of amnesty to certain undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, will end in six months.
That gives Congress a few months to pass immigration reform legislation.
Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do). If they can't, I will revisit this issue!

On "Fox & Friends," Corey Lewandowski said he's not optimistic about Congress' chances of getting it done, and he expects more "inaction."
"What we've seen in the first eight months of this administration is that they have not been able to fulfill the promises that the American people have sent them there to do," Lewandowski said of Congress.
He pointed out that we're still waiting on the ObamaCare repeal and replace, a tax reform package and an infrastructure spending bill, and there are only a dozen legislative days left in September.
"So I don't think Congress is going to take action anytime soon," Lewandowski said.
He added that Congress' low approval rating shows that the American people hold a similarly pessimistic view of their elected representatives' ability to get legislation passed.
"When you've got 12 legislative calendar days in the entire month, it doesn't seem like they're getting a lot of work done."
