President Trump, who has thus far fielded continual bashing from both sides of the aisle in his presidential tenure, announced his plans to make a decision regarding the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program in what is certain to be a controversial move.
Considered an impossibly difficult resolution to address, President Trump has delayed his decision until the last minute, as the highly-controversial program former President Obama illegally penned is due to expire on Sep. 5. It is noted that during his presidential campaign, Trump promised to end DACA as soon as he was inaugurated.
The eagerly anticipated announcement is expected to be televised and watched by millions.
Nancy Pelosi posted the following regarding the issue on her website:
Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released this statement following news reports that President Trump will terminate the landmark Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative with a six-month delay period:
“President Trump’s decision to end DACA should break the hearts and offend the morals of all who believe in justice and human dignity. This cruel act of political cowardice deals a stunning blow to the bright young DREAMers and to everyone who cherishes the American Dream. Strangely, the President has chosen to pardon someone who shares his anti-immigrant views, Sheriff Arpaio, who was convicted, while punishing young children who are innocent.
“Congress must move immediately to protect these courageous, patriotic DREAMers. House Republicans must join Democrats to pass legislation to safeguard our young DREAMers from the senseless cruelty of deportation and shield families from separation and heartbreak. Democrats will stand firm with DREAMers and redouble our efforts to protect our nation’s families from the Trump Administration’s mass deportation agenda.”
