8 things to watch in Chicago Public Schools this year

With the Trump administration ending the DACA program, Mayor Rahm Emanuel has called on Gov. Bruce Rauner to protect young immigrants brought to the USA illegally as children.

The Trump administration announced Tuesday it is ending former President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, which allowed illegal immigrants who came to the U.S.as children to be shielded from deportation.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel spoke out against the president's plans on Friday, suggesting he "spend less time tearing down President Obama's agenda and building [his] own".

Through March, approximately 787,580 people received permits to live and work in the United States as part of the DACA program since it was established in 2012.

The mayor has made it no secret that he is a strong supporter of the DACA program.

"Our kids, now, are on their way to a better future with more kids not only graduating, but going on to college and community college", Emanuel said.
