Press reads too much into Trump's illegal aliens move

President Trump rescinded Barack Obama's goofy Deferred Action for Parents of Americans, which allowed people to come to America illegally, give birth on American soil, and then claim legal status because, hey, their kid is an American, right?

I get that Democrats need votes, but Congress -- not the president -- enacts laws.

Some publications and bloggers believe that because he took action only against illegal alien parents that means he is cool with keeping illegal aliens who came here as kids under Obama's equally goofy Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

I liked it better when we were a nation of laws, but the Cult of Personality that elected Obama gave us eight years of the Reign of the Red Queen, who picked and chose laws in a cafeteria-style approach to law enforcement.

So now with a pen and a phone, presidents create their own law. The administration clarified that Trump is not through.

From Breitbart:
Amid the left-wing cheering, officials denied that Trump had accepted the DACA amnesty.
The “DAPA and DACA [amnesties] are two different programs … The fact that DACA was not rescinded by the same memo should not be interpreted as bearing any relevance on the long-term future of that program,” said a memo issued Friday by the Department of Homeland Security. “The future of the DACA program continues to be under review with the Administration.”
For several months, administration officials, led by President Donald Trump, have suggested the DACA program will continue for some time.  
In contrast, the DAPA amnesty for roughly 4 million illegal-alien parents of U.S-born children has been frozen since early 2015 partly because a group of Governors persuaded multiple judges to stop the amnesty. The governors argued that Obama was telling deputies to defer prosecutorial action — deportation — against large numbers of people without conducting the case-by-case legal review required by the courts and Congress.
Likewise, the New York Times reported:
A news release from the department said flatly that “the June 15, 2012, memorandum that created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will remain in effect.”
But officials at the White House and the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday morning that those statements were intended only to clarify that immigrants enrolled in the DACA program would not immediately be affected by a separate action officially ending a similar program for undocumented immigrants whose children are citizens or legal permanent residents.
“There has been no final determination made about the DACA program, which the president has stressed needs to be handled with compassion and with heart,” said Jonathan Hoffman, the assistant secretary for public affairs at the department. He added that John F. Kelly, the secretary of Homeland Security, “has noted that Congress is the only entity that can provide a long-term solution to this issue.”
I favor the Protect the Borders approach.

You know, following the law.

Mexicans messed up their country and want to float north to mess up ours.

We "reformed" immigration in 1965, which opened the back door for Democrats to import socialist voters from Latin America.

A "reform" in 1986 made matters worse.

Build the wall. Enforce the law. Make America Great Again.

Hate the media? Love the Trump?
Read the best two books on the subject.




On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

  1. If the laws we currently have were enforced illegal immigration would not be a problem. Also, we need to tighten up the requirements for legal immigration. We need to slow things down while we sort this out. Nobody has a "right" to come to the U.S. as an immigrant, visitor, or otherwise. - Elric

  2. "I will repeal DACA on day one."

    Simple stuff: DACA will not only enable their parents to achieve citizenship, but millions of other relatives back in the old country via chain migration.

    Trump has worked aggressively to keep his promises to small business owners, the military, evangelicals, blue collar workers, 2A supporters, plus those who want trade, healthcare, and tax reform. While treating immigration voters -- many of whom were his strongest and earliest backers like red-headed stepchildren. Are we angry? Do we feel betrayed by Trump's sudden coyness and equivocation on this issue? Very much so.

    If he wants us to turn out in large numbers in 2018 to keep his majorities in Congress, he better dump DACA or be willing to accept the consequences.

  3. Don, you can believe what you want, but the fact that PDT has not canceled the EO that established DACA is a major disappointment to those of us who expected it on 'day one.' DACA is as unconstitutional as DAPA, so why wait? The left is going to scream bloody murder anyway, just like they do whenever ANY illegal alien felon is taken into custody and set for deportation.

  5. The left will scream bloody murder over anything and everything. Treat it like a bandaid and just rip it off. Get everything done well before the next election. Two years of whining will sound shrill and bothersome by then.

  6. Press reads too much into Trump's statements? I'd say they are inserting their suspicions, insinuations, and prevarications.
