Former President Ronald Reagan’s son said President Trump put the "ball in the right court" when he pushed the protection of "Dreamers" to Congress.

Reagan added that his father would not "kick the dreamers out of the US" but would "lead" and work with Congress on a solution.

President Trump rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program on Tuesday, giving Congress six months to come up with legislation to protect those benefiting from it before it officially ends.

Reagan also slammed Democrats for doing "nothing about immigration reform" when they controlled all three branches of government.

The 800,000 "Dreamers" protected under DACA were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, but the program has prevented them from being deported. 

The Obama-era executive action has been criticized as unconstitutional. Former president Obama in 2012 stated DACA was a "temporary stop-gap measure" until Congress could act.
