New law helps Dreamers go to college in New Jersey

    President Donald Trump has repeatedly threatened to end the so-called "Dreamers" programme, which gives temporary protection to young people who came to the US with their parents.

    Now some states are helping them with that.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports from New Jersey.
