Trump Says He Will Give Dreamers Right to Work, Path to Citizenship; Drives Democrats Nuts

Is he angling for votes, looking to needle the Democrats, or trying to do a good thing for kids brought here when they were young? As with most things Trump, it’s probably all three.

In an interview with Noticias Telemundo on Friday, President Trump said he was giving the news outlet breaking news, that he would be taking care of DACA, the deferred action for childhood arrivals, and would be signing a “big immigration bill.”  He then went on to call it an Executive Order.

Trump said:

“We’re working out the legal complexities right now, but I’m going to be signing a very major immigration bill as an executive order, which the Supreme Court now, because of the DACA decision, has given me the power to do that.”

When asked if it would give people covered by DACA, often called DREAMers, legal status in the U.S., he said they would be part of it, the program would be merit-based, and it would give DREAMers a road to citizenship.

But then on DACA, Trump said:

“We put it in, and we’ll probably going to then be taking it out.”

Trump tried to end DACA but the Supreme Court overturned his decision by claiming his administration hadn’t given a practical reason for canceling the program. This left the door open for Trump to try again. His seeming reversal on the subject sent Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and other Democrats into a tizzy. The president’s comments were enticing on a program that draws a lot of attention but were vague and seemingly contradictory as he went along.

It was classic Trump.

      It wasn’t because he didn’t try. He has worked on every promise he made, but liberals are trying to stop him. There has never been a president who has been opposed on every point than President Trump. He doesn’t let it stop him, he keeps plugging away and never shows if he is up or down.
      He is my choice for 2020.

    People who are doing the right things to be in America and who love America deserve this. People who want to be here so they can have everything free and giving to them, no. People who live off of the government are the problem. Criminals are the problem. America haters are the problem. Learn American way and speak english.
