What Does Trump's DACA Decision Mean For Georgia?

Sep 6, 2017

On this edition of “Political Rewind,” our panel discusses the implications of President Trump’s decision to end the DACA program, which offers protections for more than 800,000 young people who were brought to this country by parents who entered illegally. Will Congress pass a measure to continue those protections? What does it mean here in Georgia?

 


Plus we talk to NBC/Wall Street Journal pollster Peter Hart about a focus group he conducted on behalf of Emory University. How did his group feel about the question of immigration reform? And we’ll hear some of the comments they made as they talked with Peter.

Panelists:

Greg Bluestein – AJC political reporter

Charles Kuck – Atlanta immigration attorney

Jackie Gingrich Cushman – Republican insider
