President Trump is expected to end DACA with a six-month delay to give Congress time to act. That is the way it was supposed to be done if we are a nation of laws. Congress is supposed to write the laws, not the White House.
According to the Zuckerberg group, there will be 700,000 job openings if all 800,000 DACA are removed from the country. That does mean there will be 700 thousand jobs for Americans. Corporations won’t like the pressure to eventually raise salaries.
Apple CEO Tim Cook says he stands behind his 250 illegal immigrant ‘DREAMers’. Companies want the cheap labor.
However, from the other side of the coin, The Center for Immigration Studies reports that 73% of DACA are living in low-income housing, 21% dropped out of high school, and 51% were unemployed before DACA.
Trump said he is very conflicted over this issue. “You have some absolutely incredible kids – I would say mostly,” he said. adding: “I love these kids.”
Congress is afire.
“IF REPORTS ARE TRUE, Pres Trump better prepare for the civil rights fight of his admin. A clean DREAM Act is now a Nat Emergency #DefendDACA,” tweeted New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, a Democrat.
But Rep. Steve King, an Iowa Republican who has called DACA unconstitutional, warned that a delay in dismantling it would amount to “Republican suicide.”
“Ending DACA now gives chance 2 restore Rule of Law. Delaying so R Leadership can push Amnesty is Republican suicide,” he wrote.
House Speaker Paul Ryan and a number of other legislators urged Trump last week to hold off on scrapping DACA to give them time to come up with a legislative fix.
“These are kids who know no other country, who are brought here by their parents and don’t know another home. And so I really do believe that there needs to be a legislative solution,” Ryan told Wisconsin radio station WCLO.
If Paul Ryan wants DACA, he needs to pass a DACA law.
The comments are overwhelmingly supportive of the President. One said the DREAMers who return can ‘Make Mexico Great Again’, another said, ‘Why can’t they Dream somewhere else?.. Like back where their parents came from?’, and still another suggested they keep the families together and send the entire family back.
One explained that their parents are to blame, not Americans.
A Few More Comments
Let those “incredible” kids be incredible back in Mexico. We have plenty of incredible kids here already.
if they wanted to stay here so badly, then they should have started the process to get a green card when they turned 18!
They have to thank obama for this mess no other president will ever touch this subject.
