NEW YORK, NY (WKBN) – Ohio Governor John Kasich is speaking out about President Trump’s repeal of the Obama-era DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, program.
The program protected undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children from deportation.
Trump said he wants Congress to come up with a solution — something Kasich said shouldn’t require a lot of discussion.
He thinks the young immigrants, also known as “dreamers,” should be able to stay in the country.
“We want them in America so now you’ve got the Congress, who’s got six months. It should take like, six hours to get this done and what they should do is get reasonable Republicans and Democrats together and find a solution,” Kasich said.
He also said if the “dreamers” want to live somewhere, they should come to Ohio.
The governor had previously voiced support for a path to legal status for undocumented immigrants.
