Goodbye DACA?

Image result for Daca Immigration ReformToday was declared a "national day of prayer" by Donald trump. This is frankly kind of puzzling since today is also Sunday, and it happens to be the day that most Americans go to church. And, let's face it, if they are not praying in church they are kind of missing the point of the entire exercise.

Sadly, today is the day (from reports in Politico) that I learned that Mr. trump is ending the DACA program as well. That just seems to be a very unchristian like thing to do. Forget the economic impact that it will have; that is well documented, but the human cost could be devastating as well.
Imagine separating someone -----who has been in this country since childhood---- from their own family and loved ones.

Somehow, though, that won't matter to trump and this White House. He has built his presidency on division and partisanship, and he will do anything to hang on to the 30% of people who still approve of the job that he is doing. 

The man hates Obama so much that he is hell-bent on doing away with any program that he created. This, in spite of the fact that members of his own party are telling him to reconsider ending the popular program.

We love the Dreamers, we love everybody…

No you don't. You only love yourself.

I would pray for you if I thought that it would do any good.

Folks should have prepared themselves for DACA's end, what else do you expect a NeoNazi to do?

Fergus is in a pickle over this. He has HAS to shore up the cracks that are finally appearing in his wall of Pig People, or his primary challenge threats won't be scary enough to keep the Republicans in congress from spontaneously growing thumbs, climbing down out of the stupid tree, and kicking his ass to the curb, whereupon Pence would have their entire hideous agenda signed into law by this time next year.
But Fergus is a narcissist and a pussy, and can't stand it when people say bad things (read that true things) about him on the teevee machine. It just drives him crazy. And the magnitude of force with which he will be stomped into the dirt by cable pundits is staggering if he touches DACA, even for him.
So WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Perhaps he's not the fire-demon they thought they were voting for, after all. Perhaps he folds up like burnt newspaper at the first sign of real conflict, just like we were telling you morons he would.

So will he do it? That depends on who gets to him last ahead of his bullshit deadline. Will it be Kelly, or will it be Miller or one of the other goddamn Nazis he has working for him?

Either way, a bunch of folks who did everything right, everything they were told they needed to do, including pay the treasury a combined $400,000,000 just to participate in DACA, never mind the taxes they pay, and the FICA taxes they pay that they will never see the benefit of, and all of the rest of the well-documented benefits to our country they are currently providing us, will have to live in fear of their lives being jerked out from under them for no goddamn reason at all except to make the Pig People squeal with delight because brown people are crying.
But that's really the whole point, now, isn't it? For Fergus to make a bunch of people afraid of his awesome power to bugger their lives at a whim.
It's too bad he's so old that he won't really live long enough to pay for his actions, but I only hope that what payment he is finally forced to cough up costs him dear, but I'm not too optimistic about that as he doesn't seem to really care about anything.

Not sure how the people in the DACA program should have prepared. The government is either intent on deporting you or it isn't.

Unfortunately, Obama effectively set these people up to be screwed. Now it looks like they'd have been better off if they had never registered for DACA in the first place, since ICE knows who the participants in the program are and can easily come and collect them. That was always the risk of creating such a program, that some future president could decide to deport them all, rather than showing some pragmatism and compassion and granting them permanent residency as Obama had hoped.

Of course, there was no way he could have predicted he'd be succeeded by a president so exceptionally spiteful and racist as Trump.

Perhaps we should follow the lead of our enlightened, benevolent neighbors to the north. You know, the ones who've militarized their border and are placing undocumented individuals into "refugee" (internment) camps.

Isn't it curious wingnuts want everyone to register everything except gun owners in case gubmint ever wants to deport gun owners.

"Forget the economic impact that it will have; that is well documented"

America is a rich country, we should not be keeping these resources for ourselves at the expense of our poorer neighbors. Since these people are such an economic boon, Mexico will be very grateful to take them back. Sending these folks back to their families in heir homeland is the moral thing to do.

Instead if hardworking immigrants can we deport people like Jamie Bitch who do nothing but take taxpayers money and threaten their fellow citizens with dumbass threats? What do you say? Start a petition to deport racist assholes like James!

The Coatesville ExPat said where did you get this info? From Breitbart or Fake Noize? I could find nothing similar to what you posted.

DACA applicants trusted Obama. He lied to them that he would be able to get away with his unconstitutional usurpation of power.

Once again, Obama has other people pay for his crimes.

Nothing has been found to be unconstitutional about DACA. Stop dreaming or you'll be deported as one.

So Drumpf's promise to end DACA winds up being another false hope for nutters. Drumpf apparently is handing it off to wingnuts in Congress to deal with. What a leader. What a studly man of his word-not!

Dems have indicated, and rightly so, that DACA is not a bargaining chip for tighter immigration rules.

Wingnuts are reaping another whirlwind because of the crop failures they have sown. Bwahahahahahahahaha!

Goodbye to MAGAts.

Should be interesting.

These immivaders hate Black people and ethnically cleanse you whenever they get the chance.  You only say "sadly" because you hate White people enough to sacrifice yourself to attack them.

You shouldn't have said this.  People have noticed.


"Forget the economic impact that it will have; that is well documented"

Oh, yes, the "economy".  Reduction in unskilled labor supply raises wages and taxes and cut public assistance costs; reduced remittances keeps that money in the USA.  The "economy" and general consumption shrink as parasites leave, but per-capita GDP rises and there's a transfer of wealth from capital to labor and the Gini coefficient goes down.  ESL and SPED costs in schools go down.  Emergency-room costs go down.

"the human cost could be devastating as well."

The voters of America never asked for hordes of aliens and their human costs to be dumped on them.  It was never put to a vote.  Every time a state voted on it, the aliens lost hugely.

"The man hates Obama so much that he is hell-bent on doing away with any program that he created."

Americans hate Obama enough to elect a complete outsider to clean house for them.  Suck it.  Obama's "legacy" is for everything he did to be removed from this country.  You and he should be also.

Baldingo the dumbfucker- Putin elected Drumpf. Get that through yer head. He was scared shitless of HRC because she is tougher than him and you combined. Pantywaist Putin and girlyman Baldingo. What a pair.

The delusion is strong here.

Trump ran on a platform of eliminating DACA, you idiots.  He said he would eliminate it on Day 1 by rescinding the EO which established it.  He was called out many times for failing to do this.  And you think he's going to get any of his voters to TURN ON HIM for doing what he said he would do?  You're dumber than a box of rocks.

What Trump was doing was playing for time and seeing if the courts would do the job for him (outlawing DACA as they did DAPA).  He was going to let the courts take the heat if they would act.  Well, they looked wishy-washy, so he set the timetable by doing it himself.

And what a timetable.  DACA ends right about the time the 2018 primary season gets going.  A lot of Recucklicans virtue-signalling about "Dreamers" are going to be facing Freedom Caucus challengers and hopping-mad voters.  Trump gets rid of a bunch of RINOs and puts fear into the rest of them.

If you don't like Trump in 2017, Trump is going to scare the fuck out of you in 2019.
