Former President Obama is expected to speak out against President Trump’s reported decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Politico reports.
A person close to Obama said he plans to post a statement on Facebook and link to it on Twitter, according to Politico.
During his last news conference as president, Obama said an attack on the “Dreamers” program would cause him to speak out publicly.
“The notion that we would just arbitrarily or because of politics punish those kids, when they didn’t do something themselves … would merit my speaking out,” he said, according to the Los Angeles Times.
