Kris Kobach, vice chair of President's Donald Trump's election integrity panel, said the families of those covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) should be deported right alongside of them.

Kobach, who is Kansas secretary of state, made his comments during an interview on CNN on Wednesday. They were first reported by Talking Points Memo.

"They came in presumably with a parent or parents, and so the correct policy is for us to enforce federal law and deport the whole family to the home country," he told CNN's John Berman and Poppy Harlow

"The idea that somehow it's wrong to ask people to go back to their home country and to come in the right way, I just fundamentally disagree with that."

About 800,000 undocumented young people are protected by DACA, Talking Points Memo reported. Many of them are young adults who came to the U.S. as children.

The Trump administration said DACA would be phased out over six months, The Hill noted. During that time, it would be up to Congress to pass legislation to deal with the issue.
