“Many of the people in DACA, no longer very young, are far from ‘angels.’ Some are very tough, hardened criminals. President Obama said he had no legal right to sign order, but would anyway. If Supreme Court remedies with overturn, a deal will be made with Dems for them to stay!”
This is the latest in a series of racist tweets emanating from the racist mind of the racist-in-chief Donald Trump. The president is a blatant racist and a pathological liar, and this tweet highlights both of these character flaws.
On Tuesday the Supreme Court began hearing arguments on the Trump administrations’ decision to end the Deferred Action Arrivals Program (DACA). The immigration policy is an executive branch memo signed by President Barack Obama in 2012 that allows undocumented people between the ages of 16 and 30 to defer deportation, attend school, work and pay taxes for renewable two-year periods.
Let’s parse Trump’s tweet:
“Many of the people in DACA, no longer very young”
According to the PEW Research Center most dreamers enrolled in DACA are ages 25 and younger. Even a senile septuagenarian should admit that people in their twenties are relatively young. DACA recipients are young people with a bright future and many years of service to their country, provided they are allowed to remain in America, their home country, for all intents and purposes.
“Are far from angels. Some are very tough, hardened criminals.”
DACA recipients must undergo extensive background checks, complete education requirements and have a clean police record. They undergo a more extensive background checks than the poorly vetted scammers and grifters who’ve found employment in the White House. Undocumented immigrants commit less crime than native-born Americans, and DACA recipients commit even less crimes. Dreamers are the cream of the crop, and if Trump weren’t a racist he would encourage them to stay in America.
“If Supreme Court remedies with overturn, a deal will be made with Dems for them to stay!”
Trump is a habitual liar, and if the Supreme Court overturns DACA I seriously doubt that he would make a deal with Democrats allowing them to stay.
The reason why the Supreme Court took up DACA is because the Trump administration couldn’t come up with a legal reason why they wanted to deport close to a million of law-abiding dreamers.
Trump wants to expel dreamers simply because he’s a racist, and I hope that the Supreme Court will do the right thing, and allow these exemplary individuals to remain in this country.
