President Donald Trump will phase out a program that has protected hundreds of thousands of young immigrants brought into the country illegally as children and call for Congress to find a legislative solution to protect the immigrants, sometimes known as “dreamers.”

Utah's Congressional delegation responds to Pres. Donald Trump's decision to rescind DACA, the program that shields immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children from deportation. Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski says the officer who arrested a University Hospital nurse should have been placed on leave immediately, not after body cam footage of the incident became public.
