“…this can be resolved.”

Come to DACA’s defense, Mr. Trump

It’s no secret that President Trump has the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals in his sights. It’s also no secret that ending this program, DACA, would be a callous and inhumane act, wholly un-Amer…

“Come to DACA’s defense, Mr. Trump … With Presidential leadership, this can be resolved,” Bush tweeted Wednesday.

Bush’s tweet linked to a Miami Herald editorial that urged Trump to spare the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, saying that illegal immigrants are vital to the economy.

“Condemning them to possible deportation would be heartbreaking,” the editorial said of DACA benficiaries.

As reported by Western Journalism, multiple media outlets have claimed Trump is planning to phase out the DACA program, which was begun by former President Barack Obama.

Most reports indicate Trump will not let any new admissions to the program, and will allow those currently in it to remain until their work permits expire, which could be up to two years from when Trump announces his decision.

Many on Twitter said it was Bush, not Trump, who was off base.

You just demonstrated one reason why voters rejected you. You think it is ok to violate the U.S. Constitution and separation of powers.

I think the Bush family has contributed enough to the illegal immigration debate. Please shut up and buy a sports team that I won’t watch.

Exactly why you are not prez👏…that and globalism and being an establishment and elitist and then there’s being out of touch  🇺🇸

Trump’s decision on DACA is likely to trigger a legislative chain reaction on Capitol Hill, where most Democrats and many Republicans favor allowing DACA to continue in some form, or at the very least not deporting those already in it.

CNN preview of the coming congressional debate said that any action by Republicans to allow the so-called “Dreamers” to remain would “risk angering the most conservative wing of the Republican base.”

But if Democrats, who are the minority in both houses of Congress, want to keep some form of DACA, CNN reported they might need “to decide whether they are willing to swallow a compromise that could include border wall money in in exchange for protections for ‘Dreamers,’ a population they have long advocated for.”
