    Ending DACA would be Trump’s most evil act

    Ending DACA would be Trump’s most evil act

    By Jennifer Rubin September 4 at 9:45 AM

    President Trump is expected to phase out Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, with a six month delay. The Obama-era program grants two-year work permits to those brought into the country illegally as children. (Jenny Starrs/The Washington Post)

    The Post reports:

    President Trump is expected to phase out the Obama-era program that grants work permits to about 800,000 undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, but delay its end for six months to give Congress time to pass legislation to replace it, according to multiple people briefed on the president’s discussions.

    Trump’s plan remains fluid and could change, however, and administration officials stressed Sunday evening that the president has not finalized his decision. The White House has scheduled an announcement for Tuesday.

    Some in the media take seriously the notion that he is “conflicted” or “wrestling” with the decision, as though Trump were engaged in a great moral debate. That would be a first for Trump, who counts only winners and losers, never bothering with moral principles or democratic norms. The debate, if there is one, is over whether to disappoint his rabid anti-immigrant base or to, as is his inclination, double down on a losing hand.

    The instantaneous backlash on social media Sunday night was a preview of the floodgates of anger that Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program would open. Both Democrats and Republicans have urged him not to end the program; about 70 percent of voters in most polls favor keeping the program. Trump, who likes to think of himself as someone with “heart,” may yet decide to reverse course. If he does not, let’s get a few things straight.

    First, let’s not think Trump — who invites cops to abuse suspects, who thinks ex-sheriff Joe Arpaio was “doing his job” when denying others their constitutional rights and who issued the Muslim ban — cares about the Constitution (any of the “twelve” articles). Trump says, “We love the dreamers. … We think the dreamers are terrific.” But in fact he loves the applause he derives from his cultist followers more than anything. Otherwise he’d go to the mat to defend the dreamers and secure their legal status.

    To begin with, surely Trump could talk the nine Republicans attorneys general out of the suit they are contemplating, or at least try his hand in court (as he has done repeatedly with the Muslim ban and sanctuary city order). In any event, he could wait for a final adverse ruling that could be months or years from now rather than end the executive order on his own. Needless to say, longtime anti-immigrant extremists Attorney General Jeff Sessions and senior adviser Stephen Miller have no interest in explaining any of that to the president. (When a president is as thoroughly ignorant and non-analytical as this one is, his aides have ample opportunity to lead him around by the nose.)

    Moreover, if Trump really thought he had to end DACA for constitutional reasons, how can he justify a six-month extension? (Why not 12 months? Two years?) And surely, if he really wanted Congress to act, he could insist it be tied (like Harvey funding) to the debt ceiling or, alternatively, to the funding bill to keep the government operating.

    No, if Trump cancels DACA, it will be one more attempt to endear himself to his shrinking base with the only thing that truly energizes the dead-enders: vengeance fueled by white grievance. And it will also be an act of uncommon cowardice. (“Should Trump move forward with this decision, he would effectively be buying time and punting responsibility to Congress to determine the fate of the Dreamers,” writes The Post.) Dumping it into the lap of the hapless Congress, he can try evading responsibility for the deportation of nearly 800,000 young people who were brought here as children, 91 percent of whom are working. (And if by chance Congress should save DACA, it will be Trump who is the villain and they the saviors, an odd political choice for a president who cares not one wit about the party.)

    As for Congress, House Speaker Paul Ryan, who talks about sparing the dreamers, will be sorely tested to overcome the objections of the hard-line anti-immigrant voices in his conference. Does he have the nerve to bring to the floor a bill that lacks majority support among Republicans? Tie it to a must-pass bill (e.g., Harvey funding, the debt ceiling, funding for the government)? In the Senate, will opportunistic right-wingers such as Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) grandstand, perhaps filibustering a measure into order to out-Trump Trump?

    However this turns out, the GOP under Trump has defined itself as the white grievance party — bluntly, a party fueled by concocted white resentment aimed at minorities. Of all the actions Trump has taken, none has been as cruel, thoughtless or divisive as deporting hundreds of thousands of young people who’ve done nothing but go to school, work hard and present themselves to the government.

    The party of Lincoln has become the party of Charlottesville, Arpaio, DACA repeal and the Muslim ban. Embodying the very worst sentiments and driven by irrational anger, it deserves not defense but extinction.

    LOL!! Oh my, they are really pulling out all the stops, aren't they? Poor corrupt media sluts.

    Enforcing our laws is not evil. What's evil is a government that betrays its citizens by not enforcing the laws, the good and just laws, that were passed to protect the jobs, lives, educations, resources, businesses and earnings of US citizens and the sovereignty of our nation.

    There is no merit to DACA. It's all a DACA Charade, a Dreamer Farce. It's FAKE NEWS from top to bottom, inside and out. Americans owe these people nothing, not them, not their parents, not any illegal alien. They owe US trillions of dollars over the years of their illegal occupation of our country.

    It's grinding to a quick halt. DACA is illegal, it's unconstitutional and is totally without any merit at all. They and their parents created their own plight. Americans had nothing to do with it and we are not responsible for their feigned disappointment. Their experience is no different than the experience of American children who travel with their parents to foreign locations to work in government, business and the military, and when the job is done or their time is up, they leave and come home to America. My husband lived his whole life until he was 16 in a foreign country, his brother until he was 18 and their sister until she was 14. Their parents worked for an oil company overseas and when they retired, they packed up and came home. The experience of these stupid whining DACAs is no different, except they entered illegally to begin with, but even if they entered legally and many did on tourist visas, when the time is up, you leave. You don't whine and interfere in a foreign nation's political system on your own behalf, only wild-eyed crazy people from bizarre families who think they're special and above the law would do such a thing. We don't want that in our country, and that is all we've got with these loud-mouth whining DACA's.

    End it and end it now. In full, revoke all work permits, and send them packing. Sure, give Ryan a bone and tell him you won't deport the "good ones" until February, something you wouldn't have the time or resources to do to begin with.
