DACA is an acronym for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
The fallout continues after President Donald Trump allegedly made an expletive reference to Haiti and African countries. On Friday (local time) the President tweeted that his language was "tough" but insisted he did not say anything derogatory about Haiti aside from noting it's a poor country.
The tone of discussion had looked very different early on Thursday.
His remarks were allegedly made at an Oval Office meeting held on the eve of the anniversary of the 2010 quake, one of the deadliest disasters in modern history.
Democratic senator Dianne Feinstein called the comments "beneath the dignity of the presidency" and said Mr Trump's desire to see more immigrants from countries like Norway was "an effort to set this country back generations by promoting "a homogeneous, white society".
But Trump has made off-the-wall racial comments like this before, according to Dr. Milliardaire Syverain, owner of the Shasa Medical Group, a skincare and weight loss clinic in Redwood City.
Jeffress is an informal advisor to Trump and has visited the White House.
Jean, a refugee from Haiti who came to Canada in 1968 and was raised in Thetford Mines, Que., also noted that Friday was the eighth anniversary of a devastating quake that struck her native country, one of 57 member French-language countries - many from Africa - that form La Francophonie.
Enough is enough! If the head of any corporation said what the president said yesterday, that person would be fired.
In the House, Republicans have enough members to pass GOP-only legislation but the party's far-right wing has a lengthy list of demands that could make moderate members squeamish. Baltimore Rep. Elijah Cummings said, "I condemn this unforgivable statement and this demeaning of the office of the presidency". "The president and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel". The president did not support their plan but the "Gang of Six" said they were planning to promote their plan to colleagues in the Senate to get more support. "We must build a Great Wall".
