The White House pulled out of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, a non-binding agreement that Obama signed in 2016. The US is no longer a member state pledging to uphold the rights of refugees, assist in resettlement, and provide access to education and jobs. Foreign Policy magazine published the White House explanation: “Our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone. We will decide how best to control our borders and who will be allowed to enter our country. The global approach in the New York Declaration is simply not compatible with U.S. sovereignty.” -GEG

DACA allows 700,000 people to stay in the US who were brought in illegally when they were children.
