This Trump tweet preceded the announcement by Attorney General Jeff Sessions that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program "started under President Obama is being rescinded," on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2017. Trump's decision gives Congress six months to come up with a solution before the end of the five-year-old program, which protects from deportation about 800,000 young people who came to the United States illegally as children. Sessions called DACA "an open-ended circumvention of immigration laws" and showed "disrespect for the legislative process" by the Obama administration.

The president announced his pardon of former Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio as Hurricane Harvey bore down on the Texas coast on Friday night, Aug. 25, 2017. Arpaio was convicted of misdemeanor criminal contempt on July 31, after he prolonged patrols that profiled Latinos based on their perceived immigration status for 17 months after a judge ordered that they stop. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said that with the pardon, Trump "undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law." Trump stood by his decision in a news conference on Monday, Aug. 28, saying of Arpaio, "I think the people of Arizona who really know him best would agree with me."
