Most Americans support DACA.  The most recent poll I could find shows 83% approval.  Even 67% of Republicans support it.

However, Trump created a crisis by trying to end the program and Republican congressional leadership is not willing to let the House vote on bills to decide the fate of DACA. 

Conservative Republicans don’t want a vote – they only care about politics.  From this article:

“McCarthy had a blunter message, according to two members present who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe a private meeting and as first reported by Politico: Signing the discharge petition and paving the way for passage of a moderate immigration bill could hurt Republicans in November’s elections by depressing conservative turnout and upending leadership’s plans to focus on tax cuts and other GOP successes.”

This is a pathetic effort to avoid doing what the public wants.  Sad!
