That's going to open a can of worms.
Wonder how the vote will lean now.
from the article i read, but not verbatim. "immigration is an issue for the congress, not the executive branch." "6 months gives congress time to make a decision"
Take with grain of salt...Huff Post:
There will be a six-month delay to any enforcement of the president’s decision, unnamed sources told Politico and Reuters. Congress will have to use that gap if they choose to act to keep protections for DACA recipients in place, meaning Dreamers might not know for months whether or how their lives could be upended.
Wasn't the DACA done by an Obama Executive Order; therefore, Trump can countermand that order with another Executive Order?
Trump can't lose. He's doing what he was elected to do. If Congress doesn't follow through, watch what happens at the polls.
I suspect you are correct.
Yes it was and yes he can.
Now that this thread has run awhile I'd like to give my personal opinion. Leave DACA alone. Obama did the right thing with that. They had to come here under or about 16 and have kept their noses clean. Many are very contributing members to our society.
We lost a Harvey hero the other day when the boat they were riding in helping people hit a power line. One of my very conservative friends posted on our alumni blog the young man was a DACA child.
I agree to an extent Bear. Kids didn't get a choice in them coming here. I think that is why he gave it a 6 month time limit. Let Congress come up with something better and let it be a law, not an EO.
I agree with both @yellowlab03 and @Bear. Children brought to this country legally should have the opportunity to stay here legally. The framework established by Obama was pretty good. But it shouldn't be an executive order, law and policy should be established by congress. Trump was right for ending the DACA. Though 6 months seems like an awfully short amount of time to get Congress to get it hashed out formally.
