    Trump to scrap protection for 'Dreamers', give Congress six months to fix

    Trump to scrap protection for 'Dreamers', give Congress six months to fix


    Steve Holland

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump has decided to scrap a program shielding immigrants who came to the United States illegally as children from deportation but will give Congress six months to craft a bill to replace it, sources familiar with the situation said.

    The president decided to delay enforcement of his decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA program, to give Congress time to devise an alternative, the two sources said on Sunday.


    DACA, an Obama-era program, protects nearly 800,000 young men and women, often called “Dreamers” from deportation.


    The decision, to be announced on Tuesday, will seek to placate both sides in the immigration debate at a time when the president is also grappling with North Korea’s nuclear program and Houston’s recovery from Hurricane Harvey.

    Senior White House officials discussed the policy rollout on Sunday.
    As a candidate, Trump pledged to immediately scrap the program but he has run into stiff opposition, including from senior members of his own party.

    House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan urged President Donald Trump on Friday not to rescind the Obama-era program. Ryan was joined by Senator Orrin Hatch, also a Republican.


    That said, Trump’s base will likely be far from happy about the president’s decision to leave open the option of a legislative fix. Rep. Steve King, a hawk on immigration and an Iowa Republican, tweeted his opposition to the plan on Sunday night.

    Trump made a crackdown on illegal immigrants a centerpiece of his 2016 election campaign and has stepped up deportations since taking office in January. But business leaders say immigrants make important economic contributions and that ending the program would hit economic growth and tax revenue.

    LOL!! Congress couldn't pass an amnesty bill when Democrats were in charge, I would certainly hope such a disaster would not occur during Republican control of both chambers of Congress. Americans don't want DACA Amnesty, Dreamer Amnesty or any Amnesty. The great thing about this is Wisconsin's First District will see their Paul Ryan in his true colors, fighting for illegal aliens instead of Americans. Sure hope Paul Nehlen is primed and ready to RUN!!!!

    Two of the sources said the plan is to have a six-month delay in any action regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to allow Congress time to pass a fix through legislation that would allow the undocumented immigrants to stay in the country.

    All I can say about this is .............. I warned you.

    It has been obvious for months now that Trump's long term goal for DACA was to have the U.S. Congress legalize the program, which means creating a path to future citizenship for those in the program and those eligible for the program.

    Yep, it's an amnesty. Obviously, contrary to everything Trump said during his campaign, wants to become known as the AMNESTY President!

    I would be very surprised if the US Congress under Republican control passes an amnesty bill of any type for anyone for any reason. Yes, there some snakes in the Republican Congress and they are showing themselves far and wide. The US House of Representatives won't allow that under Republicans, no matter what Paul Ryan thinks he wants.

    I won't speak to a comprehensive immigration reform amnesty at this time, however, I think there is an above average chance they can get an amnesty passed for those currently enrolled and eligible for DACA. I hope I'm wrong, but I wouldn't bet my last dollar on it (that I'm wrong). Over the last several years it seems more and more folks in our Congress are becoming more sympathetic to their plight. Of course a lot of this is coming from the favorable press and SOB stories that keep coming out of the liberal media for those poor DACA kids.

    President Trump has already spoke on his willingness to sign a legislative fix to protect those enrolled in DACA. Additionally, we know any fix put into place will undoubtedly give the illegals a future path to citizenship.
