The DACA program is an immigration policy from President Obama's administration that awards a renewable, two-year work permit to undocumented immigrants who arrived in the US before they were 16 and were younger than 30 as of June 2012.

"Nothing is more sacred to our democracy than the integrity of our voting process and my office will do everything within its abilities to solidify trust in every election here and around the state of Texas", said Paxton. Amid intense pressure from activists, including sit-ins at her San Antonio office, Hutchison was a key swing vote against the bill, which would have given Dreamers a pathway to citizenship. More than 220,000 undocumented immigrants in Texas had sought a permit or a renewal one as of August 2016 under DACA, and almost 200,000 of those had been approved, per government data. DHS has said more recently no final decision on the program has been made. Now, however, Republican leaders including ten state Attorneys General and one governor are threatening to take action if DACA isn't rescinded soon. An appellate court upheld Hanen's order and the Supreme Court declined to hear the case, letting the lower court ruling stand. After the withering of that policy, conservative activists started asking for Trump to rescind DACA, too.

"For years, our attorney general has pursued a misguided agenda to upend the lives of millions of immigrants in Texas, including those who were brought to this country as young children and call Texas home", Efrén C. Olivares, the racial and economic justice director with the Texas Civil Rights Project, said in a statement. "Their political careers and each of their states will suffer from their mean-spirited stupidity".
