The United Farm Workers union will be responding to any decision on the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA.


ABC News spoke to two administration officials who said DACA will be phased out and that the White House will no longer accept applications for legal status under DACA after Tuesday.

Anyone who has a DACA permit expiring between now and March 5 of next year will be eligible for a two-year renewal. 

These changes coming just as President Trump Tweeted "Congress get ready to do your job."



The UFW will hold a press conference following the announcement. It's tentatively scheduled for 10:30 a.m. at the Bakersfield office on 18th Street. 

The UFW posted on Facebook saying, "President Trump is expected to make an announcement regarding #DACA tomorrow (Sept. 5). Join us & Central Valley community partners for a press conference & rally to inform the immigrant community about their rights and push Congress to pass the federal DREAM Act NOW! #HereToStay #DefendDACA #DREAMAct

23ABC will live stream that press conference as soon as it begins.
