He declared on Tuesday that he loves the "dreamers" who could face deportation but insisted it's up to Congress, not him, to address their plight. Now their futures are in turmoil.
"President Trump has turned his back on hundreds of thousands of children and young Americans who came forward and put their trust in government", California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D) said Tuesday. "And it is cruel", he wrote.
"There can be no confusion about the fact that this would be a direct attack on our communities, removing legal status for 800,000 immigrant youth", said Marin. Angus King, a Maine independent, told the Washington Times. She is working hard putting herself through school.
"I think he's trying to set us up to get something done".
On Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that Trump is rescinding the DACA program (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), which gives nearly 800,000 young immigrants permission to live and work in the United States.
The failing immigration practices long have been a source of headache for Americans. It was just announced that Prince William and Kate Middleton are expecting their third child.
"The immigrants who have benefited from DACA are called Dreamers". In view of that, while I remain hopeful, I am not optimistic. "Now we're back with the good old-fashioned Korean War".
Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., agreed.
Sen. John McCain of Arizona said Trump was taking "the wrong approach", and he added: "The federal government has a responsibility to defend and secure our borders, but we must do so in a way that upholds all that is decent and exceptional about our nation". It is self-defeating -because they want to start new businesses, staff our labs, serve in our military, and otherwise contribute to the country we love.
The Trump administration said Tuesday it was ending an Obama-era program allowing young people who came to the country illegally as children to live in America free from fear of deportation. Actually, the boat wasn't actually in distress. "The thing is, the vast majority of Americans like this program, so by canceling it, Trump has stepped in some deep DACA".
Probably best to write the President's tweets for him. Don't do it immediately, because that would create chaos. We believe there needs to be a solution here, clearly. "Turns out it was just being paranoid". "Employers should know as of today, the DACA program will end in six months".
Republicans generally applauded Tuesday's announcement while some Democrats lambasted it as everything from "irresponsible" to "heartless" and "morally deficient". Thanks to waivers granted by the Environmental Protection Agency, flares emanating from refinery smokestacks burned off chemicals in the temporarily shuttered plant.
He blasted Obama for abusing executive power to grant amnesty to thousands of illegals. By creating special rights and privileges for a select group of illegals, his policy only encouraged more families to cross the southern border illegally, Sessions said, so they could apply for the same protections for their children.
