    For undocumented immigrants in the US known as "Dreamers", Thursday is the deadline to reapply for protection.

    President Donald Trump announced last month he is phasing out what's known as DACA - or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

    It has prevented 800,000 immigrants brought illegally to the US as children from being deported.
