DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is one of Obama’s executive orders that illegally allows certain illegals to stay here. Obama had no legal power to order their deportation to be ‘deferred,’ and all it would take is a stroke of the pen from Trump to remove the policy. Yet he hasn’t done so.
Why? Perhaps it’s part of his somewhat slapstick style. This is not to insult him. But the fact is he tends to take a lopsided approach to what policy initiatives he’ll advance.
It’s true that he said a few weeks ago that he wanted to deal with the ‘Dreamers’ with ‘compassion,’ so it’s possible that some of his advisers are pressuring him over the issue. Doubtless all the Republicans on capital hill are telling him it’s political suicide to end DACA and deport these ‘minors.’ In fact it’s a political winner. The American people like a president who stands up for them. And more importantly, the nation’s sovereignty and demographic integrity are involved. DACA should be removed immediately, and all its recipients should be deported.
And for those who might be concerned: the Democrats didn’t make DACA for the sake of compassion. The whole point is to get, and keep, as many immigrants in the country as possible, since they tend to vote Democrat. It’s a way of getting more Democratic votes.
