Pro-Trump PAC rescinds endorsement, says White House failed on immigration (Washington Times)
It was a key pillar to his candidacy and some groups are already assailing Trump for not making enough progress on immigration reform.
The Americans for Legal Immigration political action committee rescinded its endorsement of Trump on Tuesday, castigating him for not ending Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), President Obama’s executive order granting protections to some young people in the country illegally.
“We were so hopeful that Donald Trump would be a man of his word because the campaign promises he made to Americans were the things America needs to do to survive and thrive, but unfortunately, Trump has made it clear he cannot be trusted on his most powerful campaign issue of stopping illegal immigration and amnesty,” William Gheen, the PAC’s president, told the Washington Times.
He added, “Trump promised to end DACA on his first day with a simple memo canceling Obama’s illegal directives. This was the most important thing Trump could have done to restore Constitutional governance in America, but instead he is choosing the path of dictatorship Obama did.”
