After former President Obama attacked Trump about his plans to end DACA (Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals), Trump issued a statement that humiliated Obama.
To target hopeful young strivers who grew up here is wrong, because they’ve done nothing wrong. My statement: https://t.co/TCxZdld7L4

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Trump’s plan to end DACA, and that will allow U.S. to deport approximately 800,000 children of illegal immigrants, including those who are adults now.
Only one hour after Sessions’ announcement, President Trump wrote an explanation on why DACA is a burden.
And as expected, demonstrators rushed outside Trump Tower to protest his decision and some even took in on Twitter.
The end of #DACA will go down in history as one of the most cowardly and cruel acts undertaken by this Administration.

Trump’s cowardice is on full display today. His cruelty must not stand! #ProtectDREAMers

Trump explained saying, “my highest duty is to defend the American people and the Constitution of the United States of America. At the same time, I do not favor punishing children, most of whom are now adults, for the actions of their parents. But we must also recognize that we are a nation of opportunity because we are a nation of laws.”
That is right, of the law is so harsh Democrats should have improved it and not force a new unconstitutional executive action. President Trump pointed that out, saying Obama’s order “bypassed Congress to give work permits, social security numbers, and federal benefits to approximately 800,000 illegal immigrants currently between the ages of 15 and 36. The typical recipients of this executive amnesty, known as DACA, are in their twenties. Legislation offering these same benefits had been introduced in Congress on numerous occasions and rejected each time.”
Just to be clear, Obama didn’t know how to push a legislation the American people were against so he found an easier way to make it into a law.

So now Trump is being called a “racist pig,” as Keith Olbermann and other liberals are made it clear.
Trump wrote that he is trying to improve the Green Card system and make immigration, even more, better, “Congress now has the opportunity to advance responsible immigration reform that puts American jobs and American security first. We are facing the symptom of a larger problem, illegal immigration, along with the many other chronic immigration problems Washington has left unsolved.”
