About 800,000 people are affected by Trump's decision to give Congress six months to end their limbo status. However, the decision has been met with harsh criticism, including from US bishops, who said ending the program was a "national tragedy" for all parties and argued that it is unfair to deport young people who did not make the choice to come to the USA, but who nevertheless have contributed to the country by holding down jobs, going to college and even serving in the nation's armed forces.

Francis also tied DACA to the president's claim that he's "pro-life".

The feuding began in earnest in 2016, when Francis criticized Trump's anti-immigrant rhetoric as "not Christian", an insult that Trump returned tenfold, accusing the pope of being a "pawn" of the Mexican government and warning that the Vatican would be "attacked by ISIS" if he were not president.
