Former President Barack Obama on Tuesday trashed President Trump for rescinding an illegal immigration order shielding some children, some of whom are middle-aged at this point, from deportation, calling the move “cruel” and “self-defeating.”
“To target these young people is wrong — because they have done nothing wrong,” Obama wrote in a post on Facebook hours after the decision was announced by President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “It is self-defeating — because they want to start new businesses, staff our labs, serve in our military, and otherwise contribute to the country we love. And it is cruel.”
Forget that 21% don’t graduate high school and 51% are in taxpayer-subsidized housing.
What about the fact that citizens were targeted for the eight years he was President? Harvard just gave away seats to illegal immigrants that could have been given to citizens.
The former President wasn’t honest in his statement.
In his attack, he made all the DREAMers out to be great kids who lived here all their lives. We can all agree we should help those children, but there were ineffective screening procedures and if a 36-year old DACA said s/he was here as a child, no one checked. Some are gang members, many lied.
Barack Obama broke the law and he knew he was breaking the law when he passed his amnesty. He didn’t care because he wanted to get as many poor, easily manipulated Democrats into the country as possible. The plan is to make the USA into a one-party system, in other words, Communist/Socialist.
Remember when he said DACA by executive order was illegal?
Remember when he said illegal immigration was just not right?
President Trump has responded:
I look forward to working w/ D’s + R’s in Congress to address immigration reform in a way that puts hardworking citizens of our country 1st.

Meanwhile, Mexico said they would welcome them back since many are Mexican. They will give them scholarships and jobs.
