Canadians feeling DACA sympathy should understand we deport children too

He should be deported just for that John & Yoko t-shirt.

President Donald Trump made a splash this week with his decision to rescind DACA – the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals program.

DACA was a temporary measure, introduced by former President Barack Obama in 2012 to provide short-term protection for illegal immigrants who came to the country before their sixteenth birthday.

It’s Congress’s job, not the President’s, to pass legislation. But when the Democrat’s failed to pass an amnesty bill, Obama stepped in with a fix that many experts said was unconstitutional.

This week, Trump announced that Congress had six months to turn DACA into a permanent law.

    I would deport anybody illegal. Child, woman, man. Don’t care.

      They’re called irregulars nowadays, going forward.

    Breaking into country is no different than breaking into someone’s house, ransacking it, squatting in it and eating all the food.

    The congressional debate over this should be fun now that Trump has served the ball into their court.

    Now we have “children” in their 20s and even 30s. At the same time we try to instil adult sexual behaviours on kindergarten children, actual children.

    The DACAs are illegal aliens taking jobs that by law belong to Americans. What Obama did was not even close to being a legal action. Trump should have let the lawsuits of the 12 states go through — what a sap.
