Be informed about what President Trump actually said about his DACA decision.

I saw this one on the NZ Conservative Coalition blog. Believe me, I don’t believe in punishing children for their parents crimes, but I think most conservatives can at least agree that we don’t like how DACA was forced upon people. Obama wrote an executive order and did not allow this policy to be debated in Congress. If DACA had been a bill that Congress passed, we wouldn’t have quite as many problems with it…I mean, the Democrats had control of the Senate then. DACA was pretty fair and quite generous in allowing illegal immigrants who were brought as children to remain in the U.S. provided they were doing something productive (i.e. secondary education or military service) and were otherwise upstanding citizens (besides the fact that their residence here is illegal). Upon reading the statement, I think that President Trump’s stance here is fair…it doesn’t terminate the program immediately and grandfathers in those already approved or in the works of getting their visa approved and also gives Congress time to whip up a similar bill should they be hell-bent on keeping something like DACA around. I just don’t think that a lot of people realize the finer details of the decision (i.e. beyond the fact that DACA is ending). Enjoy!
