Donald Trump likely to end DACA program

August 25, 2017

  Last week we learned that Donald Trump’s aides were considering offering a bit of an olive branch to Democrats by granting amnesty to the dreamers in return for more comprehensive immigration reform in the future but this was turned down out of hand, and before it could even be officially proposed, by the Democratic leadership. Apparently it is all or nothing with the Democrats on this issue, they learned nothing from the Republicans all or nothing approach to Obamacare repeal, and now it is being reported that Donald Trump is most likely going to end the DACA program.

  Here is more:

President Donald Trump appears likely to pull the plug on DACA, the Obama-era program allowing young people who came to the U.S. illegally as children to remain here, several government officials said Friday.

Administration officials said Friday that the Homeland Security secretary, Elaine Duke, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions discussed the program with senior officials Thursday during a meeting at the White House. Sessions has been a consistent opponent of the program.

As many as 1 million immigrants could be affected.

Trump is said to be weighing whether to let DACA gradually expire or end it immediately, but the officials said it is not yet clear which option Trump may choose.

  If Donald Trump does indeed end the DACA program it is easy to see how the Democrats will attack him on this: they will say the heartless white nationalist racist is splitting up families and hurting the children. But when faced with the possible chance to grant the dreamers permanent amnesty the Democratic leadership declined, stating they would not use the dreamers as a bargaining chip and now, ironically, that so-called bargaining chip may soon be off the board.

  If the Democrats were really interested in protecting the dreamers they would have accepted this offer and then fought for more amnesty during the debate on comprehensive immigration reform but they did not do this and I believe it is because they made the political determination that it would be better for them to let the dreamers be deported by a Republican than it would be to protect them. 

  Repealing DACA would not be so easy if it was not made into law by Executive Order in the first place…

    Time to get off this for now and have Sessions go after the Dems and their corruption. We don’t need this now IMO. Sessions seems to be a one trick pony,

    They’ll attack anyway. Maybe doing the ‘olive branch’ was to show the public that ‘the snakes’ won’t even consider that, so seeing them reject it flat out shows they want all the ‘illegal voters’ to vote for them. Such creeps. I’m glad I won’t hear about them after life time! A painter friend told me once “Peanut (his nickname for me), there is no Hell, were living in it.” I know it kind-of contradicts itself, but the point is quite clear. These people go out of their way to make it ‘hell’ for others on this plane of existence. They get their ‘jollies’ making others miserable or carrying their load on their backs and complain it’s not enough – carry more of our crap. The Dem*s whole premise is Lie Based and they wear it proudly. Time to start cutting off the fat and obesity of Gluttony ~ hey, maybe even ‘save’ them from choking (like the snake eating it’s own tail).

    Of course, this assumes that the offer was being made in good faith in the first place. If I were the Dems, I would not trust him.

      As far as we know this was something being discussed between aides. I think it was being talked about, whether or not it would have gone anywhere is another story.

        The point is that there is a trust issue. Shoot, there were no specific policies discussed if I am understanding it correctly. I would not give the devil a blank check which is essentially what was being asked of the Democrats.

        That is a fair point, I don’t trust Trump myself to tell you the truth. But the way I understood this as it was first reported Trump would grant the dreamers amnesty before negotiating comprehensive immigration reform so I think you have the blank check backwards.
