Alex Nowrasteh is is an immigration policy analyst at the Cato Instituteâ€™s Center for Global Liberty and Prosperity. On this episode of Federalist Radio, Nowrasteh and Domenech discuss the details of DACA, Trump’s changing stances on immigration, and political sides with immigration as a whole.
“The practical effect is that most [on DACA] that are probably going to expire are basically going to be given another two years [to renew], and then beginning in March about 1,000 people on DACA a day will lose their status,” Nowrasteh said.
Many Hill staffers believe this sets up Congress for a clean DACA vote in December. “I think it’s unlikely for Congress to pass anything in the next six months to address this,” he said. “I think the best shot it’s got is a clean DREAM Act.”
