The Trump administration is reportedly seeking to scale back a program that protects undocumented family members of active-duty U.S. service members.

Attorneys familiar with the plans told NPR that the parole in place program, which gives protection to such family members in one-year increments, would only be available in rare circumstances if the plan to scale it back is successful.

“It’s going to create chaos in the military,” Margaret Stock, an immigration attorney who represents recruits and veterans in deportation proceedings, told the network.

“The troops can’t concentrate on their military jobs when they’re worried about their family members being deported.”
