Inside the DACA fight

How the debate has played out inside the White House: Kelly hasn’t allowed the debate to widely ventilate, which has frustrated some officials, given how politically and morally sensitive this issue is.

There are those, like Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who think DACA is illegal and that the principles underpinning it are not worth supporting.

There are other, more moderate officials, who support the principles underpinning DACA; and there are still others who don’t necessarily support DACA but believe it’s not politically viable to instantly kill it.
