The first real mistake of the Trump Administration in terms of policy was just revealed moments ago. The President signaled this move in his press conference last week when he said the DACA issue was very tough and that he “loved children.”
Today, it’s being reported that President Trump will keep protections in place for “Dreamers.” These are children that were brought to the United States by their parents crossing illegally and are not U.S. citizens.
This is a mistake. Not because it is compassionate. It is a mistake because it will embolden liberals to fight for more. Now there is “blood in the water” and they can smell it.
I pray that this was done simply due to Trump’s compassion for children that were brought to America through no fault of their own. Becuase if President Trump believes that he is going to win points with organized hate groups (aka Democrats) on this issue, he is completely wrong.
Additionally, President Trump now needs to go even harder after “non-DACA” illegal immigrants if he is to prove to Trump supporters that he is seriously implementing his deportation policy.
