Executive Order Uncertainty

I'm on Charlotte's WCCB TV (right outside my building on campus) talking briefly about Donald Trump's executive order (access the text of it here). The snippet they took was about DACA, which was not mentioned. The upshot is that the order clearly has big ambitions but is short on details. For the time being, people will likely wait to see what happens. For people protected by DACA, it's scary because Trump has gone back and forth on this, from mass deportation to "we're going to focus on more dangerous undocumented immigrants."

After the election, we were constantly speculating about Trump's intentions. Now that he's president and actually has a written order made public, we still have to speculate because he seems to be unwilling to be specific.
