States claim they will sue to force Trump to keep DACA program at the same time will Democrats use DACA to impeach Trump ?

(Reuters) - New York and Washington state on Monday vowed to sue President Donald Trump if he scraps a program shielding from deportation immigrants who came to the United States illegally as children.

Trump is expected to announce on Tuesday that he will end the so-called Dreamers program but give the U.S. Congress six months to craft legislation to replace it, according to sources familiar with the situation.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, in a joint statement with the state's attorney general, Eric Schneiderman, said "the president's action would upend the lives of hundreds of thousands of young people who have only ever called America their home."

In a separate statement, the attorney general of Washington state, Bob Ferguson, also threatened legal action. "I will use all the legal tools at my disposal to defend the thousands of Dreamers in Washington state," he said in a statement.

Ferguson and Schneiderman were among 20 attorneys general who wrote to Trump in July to tell him that if he ended the program, they would defend it "by all appropriate means."

Nine Republican state attorneys general have said they would file suit on Tuesday if Trump did not end the program.

    No. He can't be impeached for that. Trump would be more likely to be impeached for keeping DACA as the program is illegal.

    No, but they could use his pardon of that Arizona sheriff as case for impeachment. Too bad they don't.

    Trump should grandfather DACA for 6 months and give Congress that time to straiten it out. He should stop the anchor/birther program immediately. Bluntly he should force Congress to address, with solutions, the immigration policies of this country. You can't run immigration policies by executive order.

    I don't see how they can sue over Trump giving congress 6 months to come up with a solution to this complicated issue.

    Too bad Obama was too lazy to fix it and put a bandaid on it instead
