Just heard Jeff Sessions very brief statement regarding DACA.
In a nutshell, Trump and Sessions are leaving the fate of DACA at the hands of Congress.
Indeed. And that is the same Congress that never opposed the creation of DACA, to begin with, by President Obama.
Yes, the Trump Administration wants to bring back law and order to the country but at the same time, shrewd Trump finds ways to blame others for doing what he couldn’t unless he would openly betray his base.
While it is true that the Attorney General has announced that the Trump Administration had decided to rescind the so-called “Dreamers” program that shields from deportation some immigrants who came to the United States illegally as children, however:
“The program known as DACA that was effectuated under the Obama administration is being rescinded,” Sessions said during a news conference about the program that protects 800,000 illegal immigrants.
Sessions blamed President Barack Obama’s administration for creating, by executive order in June 2012, what should have been given to Congress to authorize.
“In other words, the executive branch, through DACA, deliberately sought to achieve what the legislative branch specifically refused to authorize on multiple occasions. Such an open-ended circumvention of immigration laws was an unconstitutional exercise of authority by the Executive Branch,” he said.
“This policy was implemented unilaterally to great controversy and legal concern after Congress rejected legislative proposals to extend similar benefits on numerous occasions to this same group of illegal aliens,” he added.
Though the Attorney General really did not mention this, and while the Trump administration is de facto getting rid of DACA, they will allow it to continue for another six months so that Congress can act on the program.
Indeed, the actual effect of rescinding DACA could lead to the deportation of about 800,000 people, know as “Dreamers,” if Congress fails to preserve the program. (Bold mine. EB)
As we mention at the beginning, and as usual, President Trump knows he cannot betray his base because it is in his best interest not to cross them.
However, he is also never going to go against the wishes of his globalist family entourage.
The shrewd master deal maker knows what to do, and how to deal with this situation.
Just note that Obama in all his lawlessness never paid attention to Congress who never opposed him.
Trump and Sessions and the entire Administration are putting the end result of this endeavor on the lap of the treasonous RINO Congress and the pro-DACA Democrats.
Is success in sight? We think Americans are only being played by the President. If we are wrong, we will most definitely apologize.
This is the time to think how are the Angel Moms feeling with this news?
Betrayed. Betrayed indeed.
