Prior to President Trump’s arrival to Davos, Switzerland, he told a group of reporters yesterday that he would endorse a plan that proposed an alternative route to citizenship for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Daca) recipients, according to The Guardian.

During the briefing, Trump included that he would allow Dreamers to gain membership over a period of time—a period that would last about “10 or 12” years, according to Trump.

Although Trump previously discarded the idea of providing young, undocumented immigrants with citizenship, he is now proposing a “legislative framework” that he believes members of both parties will endorse, according to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders.

This article was strong in that it presented the overall context of Daca, as well as Trump’s recent and current responses to the idea of its recipients securing citizenship. I also enjoyed reading quotes from different sources throughout the story. It ultimately gave me a stronger understanding of the issue.
