WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump now says he will “revisit” a program protecting young immigrants brought into the country illegally as children if Congress doesn’t act.

President Trump announced Tuesday that he was phasing out President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, but said he’d give Congress six months to come up with an alternative before ending it completely.

Now he’s tweeting that, “Congress now has six months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do).” But he says, “If they can’t, I will revisit this issue!” It’s unclear what that means.

President Trump had tweeted earlier that he was looking forward to working with Republicans and Democrats in Congress “to address immigration reform in a way that puts hardworking citizens of our country 1st.”
