The congressman for east-central Illinois supports President Trump’s announcement to end to the DACA program, because it forces Congress to take a stand.

Davis claims former President Obama said in 2012 that DACA, a program that helps children of illegal immigrants stay in the United States, was never meant to be permanent.

“It was just simply a change authored by the (Obama) administration and given to the Department of Homeland Security saying, ‘just use this rule,’” he said.
