Iowa Sues Trump Administration Over Immigrant Protection

Is now among 15 states suiing the trump administration over it's rollback of a plan that ends protection of young immigrants from deportation.

Iowa joining that lawsuit challenging the president 24 hours after protests broke out here in sioux city and elsewhere across the state.

About 40 people demonstrated at the sioux city federal building in opposition to the change in status for eight-hundred thousand undocumented immigrants-- known as "dreamers."

The trump administration -- is phasing out a policy that gave legal status to young immigrants-- who were brought into the u-s as children.

Abc's emily rau has a look at the backlash to that ""no second thoughts."

President trump holding firm on his decision to phase out the daca program?

Despite 24 hours of growing backlash.

Nats protest protests across the country?

Nats politicians, past and present condemning the move.

Nancy pelosi- "this is a despicable act of political cowardice."

Ending daca means an end for legal status for 800 thousand young people- brought to the u-s as children- leaving them at risk of deportation.

President trump giving congress six months to come up with a solution.

Ryan 10:26:33:14 "the president made the right call and the president also gave us the time and space we'll need to find what that compromise is," and the democrats ready for a fight to protect the dreamers: schumer 10:15:34 (abt 10- 15 after this) if a clean dream act does not come to the floor in september, we're prepared to attach it to other items this fall until it passes.

Both sides, it seems, ready to act- as the future of hundreds of thousands of families hangs in the balance.

Dreamer sot: "i'm going to be a statistic of people deported.

I'm going to be sent back to a country i've never been to."
