The Dreamers include under-age children coming to this country. They have no families here. Trump has decided to give them continued protections under the Dream Act. After the election, but before he took office, Donald Trump expressed a heartfelt concern for these young people. That he has decided to allow their presence in this country, is no surprise to this editor.
The Trump administration has fulfilled another one of Donald Trump’s campaign promises by rescinding the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program implemented under Barack Obama that could have allowed as many as five million illegal aliens with children who are citizens or lawful permanent residents to remain in the country if they met certain criteria.
DAPA was blocked by the courts from implementation (March of 2015), which the Department of Homeland Security cited as a reason for rescinding the program. A DHS press released said Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly signed a memorandum rescinding DAPA on Thursday because “there is no credible path forward to litigate the currently enjoined policy.”
