    Trump May Leave DACA Untouched, But It Could Be Doomed Anyway

    Trump may leave DACA untouched, but it could be doomed anyway

    (Audio at Link)

    July 17, 2017

    Kim Malcolm and Andy Hurst

    Kim Malcolm talks with Franco Ordonez, White House correspondent for McClatchy, about the uncertain future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. DACA shields some immigrants who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children from deportation.

    On why DACA supporters are concerned right now:
    Because of a recent threat of a lawsuit out of Texas. The attorney general there is leading a group of states that feel President Obama overextended his authority when he granted DACA to these young immigrants.

    They've told the Trump administration if you don't announce you'll end this program by September 5, we're going to sue you. And there's a good chance they'll win.

    Why these states believe they could win a lawsuit:

    This case would likely go in front of a conservative judge who has already heard a similar case. He ruled against a program (DAPA) that was essentially for the parents of these children. It was an expansion of the DACA program.

    That case was upheld in the appeals court, and then essentially was upheld by the Supreme Court in a split vote.
    On what options Congressional Democrats have for saving DACA:

    They really don't have many. Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said he's not going to rescind DACA. Kelly is pushing them to pass legislation, which is what they're trying to do. But they've had a really hard time bringing on Republicans, who are going to want something in return.

    Democrats have told me they're not willing to do any horse trading. They're not going to give up one immigration group to save another. And they're not going to negotiate on a border wall.
    On what immigrant advocates believe is likely to happen:

    They're very hopeful they'll be able to use their political bully pulpit to bring this out. And they're warning Republicans if they take action against this very sympathetic group that it's "political suicide" for them.

    And they're very worried that all these people who had been out of the shadow and contributing to the economy may soon go back in to the shadows.

    End it now. They've no right to be here. It's a sad situation for some, but there are many more sadder situations Americans are experiencing because illegal aliens are in our country stealing jobs, running drugs, robbing Americans of seats in colleges, running up the national debt for their welfare, killing and raping people ..... sorry, I'm not sad for DACA's, if they're upset, blame their parents or the coyotes who brought them here or themselves if they sneaked in here on their own as many did. Americans didn't create or cause this situation, illegal aliens did. They have no one to blame but themselves. My husband spent the first 16 years of his life in a foreign country, a child of Americans who worked for an oil company in the Middle East. Growing up in a foreign country doesn't entitle you to stay there. When his parents reached early retirement, they had to leave that country and return permanently to the United States and the different cultures were night and day. So don't whine to us who know better, because going home is a wonderful thing, going home to the country of your citizenship is a good thing, the right thing, and where you truly belong.
