WASHINGTON -- President Trump is expected to announce that he will end protections for undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children.

That's according to two people familiar with the decision who spoke to the Associated Press.

Enforcement will reportedly be delayed by six months, giving Congress time to decide whether it wants to enact legislation on the matter.

Trump has been considering for months whether to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

The Obama-era measure offers protections to nearly 800,000 unauthorized people referred to as "Dreamers."

75,000 of them live in New York State.

They are allowed to work, attend school, and can avoid deportation by staying out of trouble.

The president is expected to make a formal announcement Tuesday.
