Bernie Sanders slams Trump in front of packed Hancher crowd

IOWA CITY — Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders slammed President Donald Trump for threats to end the Obama-era DACA program, which protects immigrant children, during a speech in Iowa City on Thursday evening.
Trump reportedly as soon as today may end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or the Dreamer program. Formed in 2012 by executive order the program defers deportation for those who came to the United States illegally as children.
“It is shameful. It is disgraceful,” said Sanders, who sought the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016. He said 800,000 children could be affected.
“We have to do everything we can to stop that from happening, and if it does happen call on Congress to pass legislation to protect those young people.”
