Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the Trump administration would end DACA - a program that gave nearly 800,000 young undocumented immigrants protections from deportation.

Meanwhile, police arrested about a dozen "DREAMers" and civil rights activists in NY on Tuesday during a protest that paralyzed Fifth Avenue in front of Trump Tower here.

But in a statement Tuesday afternoon, McConnell praised Trump's decision to pull the plug on the program.

As he said in his news release issued Friday night, Scott said he supports legislation sponsored by Miami Dade Republican Carlos Curbelo in the House and North Carolina's Tom Tillis in the Senate that would provide a path to legal status for undocumented immigrants brought to the children.

According to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, 5,848 Kentucky residents had been approved for protections under DACA as of the end of March.

Minneapolis police say no one was arrested at the rally.

The Obama administration created the DACA program in 2012 as a stopgap as they pushed unsuccessfully for a broader immigration overhaul in Congress.

Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher said she would sit outside of USA congressmen's offices with people protected under DACA every day until they hear her message to support continued protections for the young immigrants. "This is our home, and together is how we make this country great", Olga Burks said a few hours after hearing Sessions' announcement.
