The "Dreamers" are here. It is estimated 800,000 young alien residents are living in the United States. The Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programs passed under President Obama had given a temporary reprieve to deportation for children and young adults who were brought to the country illegally by their parents.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions has announced the program will end in March. 

Congressman Ralph Abraham thinks the Congress will address the issue in the coming weeks but doesn't want DACA tied to a compromise on the U.S. - Mexican border wall.

Louisiana Congressman Ralph Abraham says the Air Force failed to do its job. Preliminary reports say the Texas church gunman, Devin Kelly, should have been added to a list of people unable to own guns. A background check should have caught a military conviction for assault and aggravated assault that made him ineligible to own any guns.  Kelly was discharged for bad conduct in the military in 2014.
