Anthony Ngwho came to the United States from the Philippines with his parents at age 12, has been trying to steady himself over the past several weeks as his emotions have run high and low while waiting for President Trump to announce his decision on whether to repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA.
