Donald Trump was elected to dismantle Barack Obama’s legacy.
Brick by brick he has been tearing down the disastrous policies of the last eight years.
And now Trump is set to make an announcement that will leave Obama up in arms.
Trump is set to announce the end of Obama’s DACA amnesty program.
Imposed in 2012 by executive order DACA has granted amnesty to nearly 1,000,000 illegal aliens who came to America as children.
Trump promised to end the program and he is about to make good on his word.
Fox News reports:
“President Trump is expected to announce plans to end President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which had halted the deportation of certain young illegal immigrants, a senior administration official told Fox News.
The announcement could come as early as Friday. Trump promised to terminate the program during the presidential campaign.
According to the official, Trump is expected to announce the program’s end but still allow the so-called “dreamers” currently in the program to stay in the U.S. until their work permits expire – which, for some, could be as long as two years.”
DACA was a cornerstone of Obama’s plan to “fundamentally transform” America.
It was so near to his heart that he promised to violate the tradition of past Presidents not criticizing their successors if Trump ended it.
The Los Angeles Times reports:
“President Obama said he would regard any effort to round up and deport Dreamers as an attack on American “core values” that would cause him to speak out publicly.
The so-called Dreamers, young people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, “for all practical purposes are American kids,” Obama said at what is expected to be the final news conference of his tenure.
“The notion that we would just arbitrarily or because of politics punish those kids, when they didn’t do something themselves … would merit my speaking out,” he said.”
But promising to crack down on illegal immigration won Trump the GOP nomination and the election.
Ending DACA is making good on Trump’s promise to erase Obama’s lawless legacy and Make America Great Again.
