"I'm glad that President-elect Trump acknowledges that we need to preserve the principle of DACA for the young people who were taken here by their relatives, who grew up here, went to school here, and often know of no other country.  They ought to be able to remain in this country, work or go to school, and live without the fear of deportation."
