President Donald Trump is reportedly considering ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program despite objections from his staff and from business leaders.

"There's no issue that's more gut-wrenching for us. These are people who came out of the shadows, got jobs and mortgages — we see this as betraying fellow Americans. ... This is consuming a ton of time at every major company," an anonymous “top Silicon Valley executive” told Axios’ Mike Allen.

Allen was told that several CEOs, including tech and retail leaders, will strongly and publicly oppose Trump ending the policy, though they will wait until he announces his decision to avoid antagonizing him. Some of the larger, multinational companies are planning on moving workers at risk of deportation without the DACA program to foreign locations.

"This is different. This is families being torn apart. This is something that will follow [the aides] when they go back to real life," said an anonymous source close to the White House.

According to this source, Trump’s staff is uncomfortable ending the program, and are feeling pressure from friends and family over it. However, some unnamed senior officials said that most in the Trump administration think DACA is illegal.

"This is the moment in time when Republicans are going to get full and fair credit for everything immigration related. So they are either going to get credit for revoking the program and casting 800,000 people into legal limbo or get credit for fixing the problem," Ali Noorani, executive director of the National Immigration Forum, told CNN Thursday.
