WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump is expected to announce as early as Friday a decision to end an Obama-era program that protects nearly 600,000 immigrants who entered the United States illegally as children "as it exists today," Fox News Channel reported, citing an unnamed senior administration official.

Trump had pledged on the election campaign trail to scrap all of former President Barack Obama's executive orders on immigration, including the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or "Dreamers," program.
