Periodically, I receive an email from a guy who served as a top volunteer for Donald Trump during the 2016 election.
Unlike the letters and messages I receive each day from my readers, this man sends it straight to my personal email. How he has my email address, I don’t know.
Either way, his letters are always well written and thought provoking.
His latest letter to me arrived on Sunday morning, and it’s regarding Trump’s plans for DACA. The decision on DACA is expected to come on Tuesday when the program put forward by Obama in 2012, is set to expire. DACA provides temporary amnesty to young illegal aliens. Trump vowed to eliminate the program on Day 1. He has not eliminated it, and many believe he will keep it in some way. It’s important to note he can eliminate the program with the swipe of a pen.
EMAIL TITLED: ‘If DACA Stays; His Supporters Will Run
I struggle to keep these around 350 words, I could go on forever… 😉
I’m nervous about Tuesday’s decision on DACA. If President Trump fails to rescind DACA, he will never recover, half his base will abandon him and he will lose in 2020 bigger than any DREAMer could ever dream; ushering in the most far-left regime in our history.
Personally, I will stop supporting him if he does not rescind DACA and a number of influential, some borderline fanatical, Trump supporters and volunteers I know personally will also abandon him, some even threatening to campaign against him.
DACA is the canary in the coal mine as to whether or not President Trump is serious about fixing our immigration problem. Failing to repeal it on “Day 1” has also made me second guess him all too often.
Since January, I have both praised and criticized POTUS. For any criticism, I was unfollowed or met with annoyance amongst his strongest supporters and volunteers. Now, some of these same people are starting to be more vocal on social media against his decisions.
Both Candidate and Citizen Trump have been wishy washy on what to do with illegals already here, flip flopping between hard right and left-leaning moderate positions. I worry that seeing displaced children in Houston will emotionally influence his decision. Hopefully, it reminds him that America has limitless opportunity but only finite resources.
Here’s what I think will happen: DACA will be rescinded to appease his base, allowing work permits to expire naturally (fine). Next, some kind of DREAM Act will go through Congress, only this time it passes (Dec 23?, not fine). This solves the unconstitutionality problem, but the Act will contain some convoluted form of amnesty with conditions that will never be enforced, and then we’ll be right back here wondering whether or not he will veto.
On an odd note, Feinstein and Pelosi are also being nice-ish to Trump. This can’t be good.
Today is a National Day of Prayer and, Houston aside, I also pray our President knows just what’s at stake and makes the hard decisions he needs in order to save this country. I also pray that every one of his supporters has the courage to speak up for what is best for America, no matter the consequence, just like you do.
