After US President Donald Trump decided to scrap the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme on Tuesday (5 September), Twitter is furiously criticising and questioning his eldest daughter and White House adviser Ivanka over her position on the controversial move.

The programme allowed 800,000 immigrants who were brought into the US illegally as children to stay and work in the country by obtaining a two-year work permit.

The decision has since triggered protests and widespread condemnation from former US presidents, lawmakers, activists, celebrities and social media users as a "cruel and wrong" move.

First daughter Ivanka Trump, who was seen as a potentially moderating influence in the Trump administration, also came under fire for failing to voice her thoughts on the controversial changes.

Earlier this week, a group of protesters with DACA recipients held a candlelight vigil outside the home of Ivanka and her husband Jarden Kushner urging them to help keep the programme.

However, Twitter users slammed Ivanka as "complicit" and questioned her stance on the move to rescind DACA.
