Man Bites Dog, Peace in the Middle East and Durbin praises Trump. All seem like unlikely headlines but the last of the three scenarios is not fake news. Senator Dick Durbin thanks the President for keeping the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in place.



DACA grants temporary reprieve from deportation to certain undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children. So far 790,000 young people have benefited from the program and Durbin says they've gone on to careers like nursing and engineering while others have become small business owners.
