The Price for Humanity

Image result for daca

DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that protects nearly 800,000 young, undocumented immigrants (aka, “Dreamers”) from deportation, was created in 2012 by the Obama administration after several failed attempts in Congress to pass a law to protect these undocumented immigrants.

The latest reports are that Donald Trump is going to announce tomorrow that he is ending the controversial program. However, he is allegedly going to give Congress six months to craft a bill to replace DACA.

What I’m about to say is rumor, but it comes from some usually reliable sources. Are you ready? Trump wants to tie the continuation of DACA to Congress approving funding for his infamous southern border wall.

Yes, you heard that right. Trump may be using his wonderful, beautiful wall…you know, the one that Mexico was supposed to pay for…as a bargaining chip.

Apparently he is willing to trade the futures of 800,000 dreamers for money to pay for his unnecessary and ill-conceived border wall.

Again, this is an unsubstantiated rumor, but it doesn’t sound that far-fetched to me, based upon Trump’s campaign promises and his nature.

Of course, with today’s headlines about North Korea, DACA and the border wall may be the least of our problems.

    The Trump presidency is unconstitutional, unfocused, chaotic, scandal-plagued and damaging to all Americans.

      I don’t know about unconstitutional, but I agree with everything else you said.

    hopefully he meant the president has done things that are unconstitutional…and that i would agree with and hope the congress pull their collective heads out and do something about.

      I hope that, too, but I’m not holding my breath.
