Since former-President Barack Obama implemented the DACA initiative five years ago, almost 800,000 people have been able to work and attend school in the USA without as much fear of deportation.

Colombians adore Pope Francis, the thousands of people came from all over the country in Medellin airport to welcome the Vatican head.

But the president insisted he was showing compassion for the Dreamers, many of whom know only the United States and speak only English, by giving Congress six months to craft a lasting legal solution.

The remarks come after Trump made a decision to end DACA, a program instituted by former President Barack Obama that protects undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S.as children from being deported.

Trump said last week he had chose to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in six months.

"Such an open-ended circumvention of immigration laws was an unconstitutional exercise of authority by the executive branch", Mr. Sessions said Tuesday at the Justice Department. But the Trump administration announced last week that it would no longer accept new DACA applicants as of September 5 - and urged current DACA recipients whose work authorization cards expire before March 5, 2018 to apply for an one-time, two-year renewal.

However, on this occasion, it was the very thing created to keep Pope Francis safe that ailed him.

The pontiff said all people must confront the situation. "And anything that goes against this robs them of hope".

Addressing the moral responsibility of politicians who deny climate change, Francis said "if one thinks it is not so true, then let that person go and ask the scientists".

Venezuela's crisis has caused food and medicine shortages and calls for President Nicolas Maduro to quit.

"You can see the effects of climate change and scientists clearly tells us the path to pursue".

"This holy blood is staying in Colombia", said Ricardo Morales, a lawyer who lined up outside St. Peter Claver's church for a glimpse of the pope. Theirs is not an airy-fairy opinion, they are most clear.

Asked why political leaders have not done more to curb carbon emissions so far, Francis paraphrased a passage from the Old Testament.

The Pope can be seen with bruising as he greets crowds after the accident.
