Deadline day for many DACA renewals

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

Today is deadline day for thousands of so-called "dreamers" to submit their renewal applications.

It affects anyone whose DACA permit is set to expire before March 5. The program is being discontinued under the Trump administration.

The president says the Obama White House illegally created the program that protects the children of illegal immigrants from deportation.

President Donald Trump says if lawmakers pass a legal fix, he will sign it.
