Trump to dump DACA?

Until now, government at every level has lacked the guts to do what needs to be done about illegal aliens.

As we all know too well, the last Administration viewed the Constitution of the United States as their own personal roll of Charmin.  And one of the many illegal and unconstitutional actions was Obama's DACA.

DACA, or "Deferred Action For Childhood (Illegal) Aliens," was one of the many end-runs around the law that leftists rather hypocritically supported when their hero abused it, but who completely freak out at their self-delusional perception that President Trump is acting precisely the same way the criminal formerly in the White House acted.

The reality is that whatever bar President Trump has to clear has been set fairly low by the prior occupant of the White House.  And getting rid of each and every unconstitutional act Obama engaged seems like a solid foundation for the first year.

Not as solid as the RINOs in Congress repealing Obamacare or implementing tax reform, but the same GOP cowards obstructing those actions are also the ones who did nothing about DACA.

Even at the state level, it was the GOP senate that implemented the state level version of the so-called Dream Act, a law that allowed illegal aliens to both get in-state tuition in our universities AND to become eligible for state student aid... because there's certainly enough to go around... enough slots in our schools and enough money to give all of them aid... with slots and money left over for illegal aliens.

It was also the GOP senate that approved a GOP senator's bill to charge citizens more for their driver's licenses than illegal aliens who, of course, shouldn't be eligible for any license of any kind for anything.

Now, it seems more and more like anyone challenging DACA will win.

Trump admin to lawmakers: DACA in jeopardy

Washington (CNN)The DACA program, which protects undocumented immigrants brought to the US as children, could be in serious jeopardy, President Donald Trump's secretary of Homeland Security told lawmakers Wednesday.

Secretary John Kelly told Democrats of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus that while he personally supports the program, he could not commit to the Trump administration defending it, according to members in attendance and Kelly's spokesman, David Lapan.

Kelly said that legal experts he's talked to both inside and outside the administration have convinced him that it is unlikely the DACA program, the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive action, would sustain a court challenge.

In this instance, of course, the phrase "undocumented immigrants" refers to "illegal aliens."

One of the many steps we, as a nation, must take to secure our borders is to eliminate this country as an illegal alien resort destination.

This is a baby step to accomplish that.

Illegal aliens are a massive problem that will require a massive response, to include expanding border security, building the Wall or some version of it, expanding the Border Patrol and increasing the number of immigration courts to get these people processed and deported.

The other steps are self-evident and I've gone over many of these options, options that have to be implemented and sooner, rather than later.

But this is a step on the journey.
