The Trump administration is set to announce Tuesday that it will undertake a review of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that will allow Dreamers to renew their protections for a year.
The White House laid out details about the plan during a call with reporters on Tuesday afternoon. A source familiar with the plans said the review is expected to take roughly 100 days. The presidential election is 98 days away, giving President Trump cover to punt on an issue that can be politically divisive.
The review is intended to ensure that the legal justifications for rescinding DACA comply with the Administration Procedures Act, the source said.
