Donald Trump To End DACA


President Donald Trump announced earlier this week that he will end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. The so-called “Dreamer act” was a a program set up by president Barack Obama as a way of protecting the children of undocumented immigrants that were brought here and are now mostly adults. This was done in reaction to congress’ inability to act on immigration. Donald Trump has been a virulent opponent of DACA for years because, you know, he hates immigrants particularly those from Latin America. Trump gave congress six months to come up with a solution to the problem or else “he will do it”, whatever that means. In other words, much like with the ACA, he is passing the buck on congress to solve the problem. That way if they do not act he can blame the congress and keep his supporters happy. Trump said, “I do not favor punishing children, most of whom are now adults, for the actions of their parents. But we must also recognize that we are nation of opportunity because we are a nation of laws.” OK, but then why are you punishing them, Donald?

The announcement was made by aging Confederate monument attorney general Jeff Sessions. He looked like a kid that had been given a bag of candy he was so happy. Sessions said the Obama administration,

“Deliberately sought to achieve what the legislative branch specifically refused to authorize on multiple occasions. Such an open-ended circumvention of immigration laws was an unconstitutional exercise of authority by the executive branch. Denied jobs to hundreds of thousands of Americans by allowing those same illegal aliens to take those jobs. We cannot admit everyone who would like to come here. It’s just that simple.”

OK, first of all there is no evidence that either the Dreamers or their parents took any jobs from Americans. The recent immigrants take jobs no White people want, (because let’s face it, that’s what he means by ‘Americans’), and the by the way, the Dreamers ARE Americans. Most of them spent their entire lives here, went to school here, and are decent tax-paying citizens. 0% of them have been convicted of a crime. That means these are 800,000 good, hard-working Americans that this administration wants to deport to a country none of them have grown up in just to prove a political point.

Barack Obama hit back at Trump and Sessions by saying,

“Let’s be clear: the action taken today isn’t required legally. It’s a political decision, and a moral question. Whatever concerns or complaints Americans may have about immigration in general, we shouldn’t threaten the future of this group of young people who are here through no fault of their own, who pose no threat, who are not taking away anything from the rest of us.”

The removal of DACA is simply cruel, racist, and politically motivated. But it’s all part of their plan to reestablish White supremacy over this country in the wake of increased freedoms for Latinos, Blacks, LGBTQ people, Asians, immigrants, and of course in the wake of a Black president. Make no mistake, that is the basis of the removal of DACA. It will create a massive brain drain on our community as some of the best and brightest Americans are suddenly in danger of being deported.
