US service members who are a part of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program can not be deported, Defense Secretary James Mattis told reporters tat the Pentagon Thursday.

Defense Secretary James Mattis said immigrant members of the military who are now protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program will continue to be protected - even if the program expires without congressional action next month.

On Thursday, Mattis said protections apply to service members on active duty in the reserves or those who have served their country in the past.

"They will not be subject to any kind of deportation", he said. Mattis said he was closely working with the Department of Homeland Security on the issue.

"So we'll work with them" on finding a solution, White said.

"I'm not an expert on DACA, I'm an expert on military", he said.

White did not immediately have a count of how numerous Dreamers were now serving in Iraq, Syria or Afghanistan.

If Congress fails to act before March 5 - the deadline upon which the program is set to expire - "they're protected", Mattis said.

DACA service members are all people with a particular set of skills, such as being fluent in a key language, who came into the military through the Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest program. Mr. Trump wants to expand the protections to roughly 1.8 million immigrants who came to the US illegally as children.

On Monday, Trump Tweeted that "Any deal on DACA that does not include STRONG border security and the desperately needed WALL is a total waste of time".
