The White House is pushing back against reports that top administration advisor and presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner is working to extend DACA, the program implemented by President Obama via executive order that allowed illegal aliens brought into the country as children to remain.
On Thursday, Newsmax White House correspondent Emerald Robinson claimed in a tweet that sources told her Kushner has been “holding meetings” to get a “DACA deal” done before the November elections.
BREAKING: sources confirm that White House advisor Jared Kushner has been holding meetings on DACA amnesty deal – with a goal of getting it done before the 2020 election.

Avi Berkowitz, Assistant to the President and Special Representative for International Negotiations, called Robinson’s claim “false.”
Further, as the Washington Examiner reports:
A White House official told Breitbart News that no conversations were being held about the subject, calling the reports “totally false.” However, they also report that there have been “rumblings” of the reported meetings.
There are nearly 700,000 DACA recipients in the United States. President Trump announced an end to DACA in late 2017, but legal challenges have kept the program alive for two and a half years. The Supreme Court is currently considering the future of the program.
Obama signed the DACA — Deferred Amnesty for Childhood Arrivals — in 2014 as an executive order. Critics have since panned it as blatantly unconstitutional because it changed existing U.S. law, which presidents cannot do because that’s Congress’ function (presidents can then sign those measures or veto them).
President Donald Trump tried to end DACA the same way it was created, via executive order. But somehow though federal courts had no problem with Obama implemented DACA, Leftists on the bench have had a problem with Trump trying to ditch the program.
The Supreme Court should be siding with Trump and against Obama, but we’ll see how that goes.
President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve!
He wants zero rates and QE4!
You must prepare for the financial reset
