U.S. Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) joined a group of 10 Republican Congress members asking Speaker of the House Paul Ryan to push forward on DACA legislation.

The move could be viewed as defiance of potential direction from President Donald Trump on the matter.

In a letter to Ryan, McSally and the co-signers insist that Congress is responsible for determining the future of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), which allows children of immigrants to defer removal action as they pursue their education and careers.

President Trump is expected to announce his DACA policy next week.
