President Trump made many powerful promises to the American people, but what generated the electric enthusiasm from average Americans was his promise to fix illegal immigration.
He targeted the building of a border wall and vowed to make changes in the immigration system including deportations.
He has already done an extraordinary amount of work towards dropping border crossing and awaits Congress for full funding of the wall.
But now he is on the brink of completing one of his most controversial promises: cancelling Obama’s immigration laws for DREAMers.
Fox News reports from the White House:
President Trump, as early as Friday, is expected to announce plans to end the Obama administration program that gave a deportation reprieve to hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants, a senior administration official told Fox News.
Trump promised to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, during the presidential campaign — but since taking office had left the door open to preserving parts of it.
According to the official, Trump is expected to announce the program’s end but will allow so-called “dreamers” currently in the program to stay in the U.S. until their work permits expire – which, for some, could be as long as two years.
Even Trump supporters are divided on DREAMers because it is hard not to be compassionate to children brought to this country by their families.
But there are only two options: deport them or let them stay while deporting their parents and splitting up families.
Trump is drawing a line in the sand—he is not being heartless, although that is surely how liberals and the media will paint him. He has done the research and this is the best choice for everyone: for Americans, for DREAMers and for their families.
Expect to hear much more about this decision and Trump’s rationale in the coming days. What do you think? Let us know whether you think Trump should deport DREAMers in the comments below.
