Trump Ends DACA

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a policy created under President Obama that legally helps non-native children who were brought to this county by their parents to avoid deportation and obtain work permits as they grow up. Now Trump has honored his pledge to the racist right-wing to end the policy and dishonored America's pride by intentionally attacking people who did nothing wrong simply because they are "different". The plan luckily isn't immediate, as Congress has six months to act, but with Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell I wouldn't hold your breath on that one.

American law has made it clear that children are not responsible for the crimes of their parents. These Dreamers are innocent, brought here by parents who didn't follow our laws. Deporting these Dreamers is a moral crime.

Pity the world isn't flat, he would by now have fallen off!

On top of it, he had the audacity to say he loves them. It reminded me of the movie, History of the World Part 1 with Mel Brooks. It's the scene during the French Revolution when the King says he loves his people... check it out on youtube

I can't even begin to sort out all the contradictory things our president has said about the Dreamers. The thought of deporting young people who grew up here to countries they don't know is appalling. We don't punish children for the crimes of their parents. What has happened to the America I loved and respected?
