Some DACA Honesty … Please?
Can we have an intelligent discussion about DACA? The Left now blasting President Trump for his decision to phase out DACA. However, what he did is put the decision back where it RIGHTFULLY, LEGALLY and CONSTITUTIONALLY belongs … in the hands of Congress. Of course, if you hate America, the U.S. Constitution, the Rule of Law, and everything this country stands for, you would be blasting this decision … no matter who made actually made it
What did President Trump Say?
The President Trump’s administration announced its decision on DACA Tuesday. They will implement an “orderly wind down” of this Obama-era executive order. The unilateral order gave a deportation reprieve to illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. In addition, President Trump gave Congress 6 months to come up with a legislative solution to the issue. Congress, not the President, writes the laws. They don’t teach that in school anymore? It is almost as if our schools are preparing our kids for a more “authoritarian” form of government.
I often wonder were all the vocal critics and protestors when, under the Democratic controlled legislature, Obama couldn’t get this done through legislation? Remember, Obama is the one who took the unconstitutional path and imposed it unilaterally by executive order … not President Trump.
What About Being A Society built on Laws?
It has become fairly clear that neither the establishment politicians of both parties nor the media care about the rule of law. 25 States sued the previous administration in Federal Courts with Federal Judges ruling that DACA (and DAPA) were unconstitutional executive actions. Did you hear about this in the left-wing mass media? Nope? I sure didn’t. I think I heard it on Fox news though! That must be why the Left hates Fox News so much. Furthermore, it is simply more evidence of the mass media’s “enemy of the people” status perhaps?
President Trump is Heartless, Evil, Racist, and Cruel!
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 a nation of opportunity because we are a nation of laws.
And What of Barack Obama?
Yesterday, Obama went on the attack, saying President Trump’s ending of DACA is “cruel”. Yet, he once said he did not have the authority to do what he later did. Either Obama has a very short memory or his is being very disingenuous in his attack on President Trump. Furthermore, I remember when Obama stated this was not amnesty or immunity. Obama said it was not a path to citizenship. He stated himself this was not a permanent fix … calling it a temporary stopgap measure.
