Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly signed a memo rescinding a 2014 directive that created the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, according to a statement issued Thursday evening by the Department of Homeland Security.
On the fifth anniversary of one of former President Barack Obama's signature immigration orders, the Trump administration rescinded a major piece of the policy, ending the deferred deportation of undocumented parents of children who are American citizens or legal residents.
The rescinded memo purported to provide a path for illegal aliens with a US citizen or lawful permanent resident child to be considered for deferred action. A DHS press released said Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly signed a memorandum rescinding DAPA on Thursday because "there is no credible path forward to litigate the now enjoined policy".

Texas and 25 other states filed a lawsuit to block the policy implemented by former President Barack Obama which would have granted deferred deportation to almost 5 million undocumented immigrants.
It was never implemented after 26 states successfully sued in a Texas federal district court to block it. Trump has not said what he plans to do about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, but so far most immigrants protected by the effort have not been targeted by stepped-up efforts to find and deport immigrants living in the country illegally.

He added , "I think the best vindication for the President is to let this investigation to go on independently and thoroughly". A person close to Trump's legal team also said earlier Tuesday that there have been no discussions about firing Mueller.
Kelly's decision came to no surprise to immigration right's advocates, considering the Trump's administration's stance to increase the number of deportations and widen the net of undocumented immigrants considered a priority for deportation.
Trump has made immigration enforcement a top priority and has vowed to continue a crackdown on those living in US illegally and those trying to sneak into the country.
