The kill the initiative the allows children of undocumented immigrants to stay in the country could have massive economic ramifications and many anxious including Riccy Enriquez Perdomo who was just reunited with her family after being detained by ICE. Mr. Trump is expected to announce his decision Tuesday. She said the administration "will make an announcement" on Tuesday.

It also was unclear exactly what would happen if Congress failed to pass a measure by the considered deadline, they said. "It's kind of out of my hands and out of my control, and that's one of the worst feelings, because I feel kind of helpless".

As of July 31, 2015, more than 790,000 young immigrants had been approved under the program, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

The DACA program protected from deportation at least 800,000 people brought into the country illegally as children. "Having said all of that, there are people who are in limbo".

Schneiderman said Trump's decision to scrap the DACA program "cruel, gratuitous, and devastating to tens of thousands of New Yorkers, "I will sue to protect them, Dreamers are Americans in every way".

According to Muedini, even if President Trump did decide to end the program immediately, it would likely be years before its full impact is felt.

When asked about his stance on "Dreamers" - "the children who were brought here by their parents", (not necessarily to be confused with DACA recipients), the President made some statements that are not necessarily aligned with what he's expected to do now.

But if Congress fails to pass legislation by the end of the six month period, Trump could end the program altogether, putting almost 1 million people at risk of being deported from a country they have lived in most of their lives.

Some Republicans have implored Trump in recent days to keep the program going as Congress works on a solution Dreamers - who in most cases know no other home than America. More recently, however, attorney Jeff Sessions and White House counsel have said they wouldn't defend the program in court.

The California lawmaker said the decision requires immediate action from the Republican-led Congress, and Speaker Paul Ryan and the GOP leadership must hold a vote immediately to address the issue. "And that solution must come from Congress", Hatch said. However, if Congress fails to create new legislation in time, there is a possibility that Dreamers may face deportation as early as March.

"I actually don't think he should do that", CNN quoted Ryan as saying in reference to Trump's consideration of terminating the program, adding that he believes that this is something that Congress has to fix.
