Updated Trump administration ends DACA, with 6-month delay 06/19/2018

The Trump administration on Tuesday announced the “orderly wind down” of the Obama-era program that gave a deportation reprieve to illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children – putting pressure on Congress to come up with a legislative alternative.

The Department of Homeland Security formally rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, with a six-month delay for current recipients. According to Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke, the interval is meant to give Congress “time to deliver on appropriate legislative solutions.”

“However, I want to be clear that no new initial requests or associated applications filed after today will be acted on,” Duke said in a written statement.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, speaking to reporters, blasted the Obama administration's "disrespect for the legislative process" in enacting the 2012 policy. He said the “unilateral executive amnesty” probably would have been blocked by the courts anyway.

“The executive branch, through DACA, deliberately sought to achieve what the legislative branch specifically refused to authorize on multiple occasions,” Sessions said, blaming the policy for the recent “surge” at the border. “Such an open-ended circumvention of immigration laws was an unconstitutional exercise of authority by the executive branch.”

A day earlier, Sessions sent Duke a letter with his legal determination that the 2012 executive action was unconstitutional.

The Trump administration was facing a Tuesday deadline to make a decision on DACA or face legal action by Republican state AGs who hoped to force the president’s hand in discontinuing the program.

Administration officials cast their approach Tuesday at the least disruptive option.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump had promised to terminate DACA, though he appeared to soften his stance since taking office. In ending the program with a six-month delay, Trump put the onus on Congress to pass a legislative fix.

According to DHS, no current beneficiaries will be impacted before March 5, 2018.

“Congress, get ready to do your job - DACA!” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning.

While some Republicans support the goals of the DACA program, many opposed the use of executive action to institute it, describing the move as a presidential overreach.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is among those who now supports the call to protect so-called “Dreamers” with legislation.

“I have always believed DACA was a presidential overreach,” he said in a statement. "However, I equally understand the plight of the Dream Act kids who -- for all practical purposes know no country other than America. If President Trump makes this decision we will work to find a legislative solution to their dilemma.”

On a conference call, administration officials said Tuesday they are still prioritizing criminal aliens for deportation. But they described the original DACA criteria as very broad and cited the legal determination of the Justice Department.

During the presidential campaign, Trump referred to DACA as “illegal amnesty.” However, he seemed to edge away from that stance in April when he told the Associated Press that DACA recipients could “rest easy.”

The DACA program was formed through executive action by former President Barack Obama in 2012, allowing recipients to get a deportation reprieve – and work permits – for a two-year period subject to renewal. Under the program, individuals were able to request DACA status if they were under the age of 31 on June 15, 2012, came to the U.S. before turning 16 and have continuously lived in the country since June 15, 2007. Individuals must also have a high school diploma, GED certification, been honorably discharged from the military or still be in school. Recipients cannot have a criminal record.

Congress had been considering legislation to shield young illegal immigrants from deportation for years, dating back to the George W. Bush administration. Lawmakers tried again to pass a bill during the Obama administration, but couldn’t muster the votes amid flagging Republican support before Obama formed the program in 2012.

Nearly 800,000 undocumented youth are currently under the program's umbrella.

On Friday, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said he supported a legislative solution to protect undocumented minors, but also urged the president to reconsider scrapping DACA.

"I actually don't think he should do that and I believe that this is something that Congress has to fix," Ryan said on radio station WCLO.

What difference does it make... It makes a difference of about 14 million more illegal aliens running loose in America,  nearly double the 16 million, you choose to report.  That's a big difference... wouldn't you say?

 And my report is correct, not yours Ronald.

 Score 3 points for us women..:)

Why..  should we accept numbers you fail to cite with authoritative references... like some women you obviously believe men should defer to you simply because you 'SAY SO"... well, this man doesn't accept such unilateral statements, nor should anyone with an open mind.

I am going to vote for Tif on this, it has never been a secret that Mexico's former ambassador to the United States hates President Trump.

 3 points for Tif and the women, they have exposed more crap then you have Mr. Nelson.

Surprise, surprise... you support speculation and innuendo... fiction and wild-eyed conspiracy... hows the IRS or England conspiracy going, or the Federal Reserve of England and other such non-sensical ruminations of your fermenting mind?

I am particularly fascinated by your latest conspiracy theory...  labeling the ACLU a George Soros operation... Albeit, the ACLU is leftist and Anit-American at heart, they are not a George Soros operation. 

What will be your next revelation: That the sun rotates around the earth... that America never landed on the moon... or that Guam is about to capsize and tip over into the ocean?  Fiction is certainly no stranger to your pallet. 

 Federal Reserve of England, my my!!!" if I remember Ronald you post a blog of How a few men of the fed control a nation, did I miss understand your contempt? Or was just looking for someone to bash?

 Looks like to me once they stated, "There Is No Other Authority Higher Then Their Organization", people took a closer look at them.

 And because some of their last names is Jewish, only show that CFR placed them into position where they can not be voted out or fired.

CFR-  Council on Foreign Relations, of the British Empire, wow we, how is it these people have started writing and Amending our laws.

 So if you look at Council on Foreign Relations, and the body that voted in DACA kissing the back side of Obama. and that is what the Republican Party did.

 Kiss kiss kiss....pucker up that is what the sissy boy and girls did...LOL Tif

Tiff... there is no  "Federal Reserve of England" , there is no CFR of the British Empire those are phony constructs that you and your neo-intelligentsia would have us believe... and they smack of rank Anti-Semitism and socialist propaganda... make that communist propaganda.  You are either a dupe... or a willing tool of the left... as you attempt to misdirect the attention of true patriots from the real enemies of the Constitution ... onto some mythical groups and conspiracies, which simply have no basis or little basis in fact.  Using George Soros's name doesn't make it so... and George is a very bad apple but your posts credit him with things he has no real control over... diverting attention from the true culprits doesn't help.

Stop trying to act like a patriot ... you are not.  The more I read of your posts the more convinced I am that you need to call one of those infamous meetings where you frequently return with more unsupported... I'll release the proof latter... conspiracy theory. Like... you really have some hidden documents to support your theories... and those you have posted are completely irrelevant or full of jibberish... so much for your credibility.  You have managed to run off legitimate debate and to replace it with lunacy of the highest order.

I had to borrow my dad's wifi hotspot, mine kept crashing,

 And this time Ronald the message is from Obama,

 WE Come In Peace, Welcome To Our Democratic Democracy For DACA

Nice cartoon but what does it really have to do with the current situation... we all know DACA is illegal and an open border conspiracy tool... So, what is the solution... more cartoons?

Wake Up, its time to have a Tea Party:

Now also see Islamic Immigration Amendments- US Law, George Soros's ACLU Foundation is hard at work to destroy America's Foundation Of Constitutional Laws.

http://teapartyorg.ning.com/forum/topics/islamic-indoctrination-hit...

If I don't I will never hear the end of it from Tif, the vote is for Tif and the women that exposed DACA.
Anti-Semitic, Anti-American rhetoric, Mr. Nelson, all anyone needs to do is researched the names of politicians, and follow up on what organizations they are connected to.
The Federal Reserve, a treaty established by Democratic President, who was also a member of the UK Parliament.
The IRS Scandals. At one time I researched the IRS under google forum, for IRS of London England. That page of google info was removed.
Later I researched IRS Treaties of the United Kingdom, and found a the amendments, case laws, codes and so on, listed as a Treaty.

Now the cold facts, London England removed white politicians, Jewish and British, seated in Muslims.
People in America on the streets are looking at London England, the Crown as Anti-Semitic, Anti-American.
Jewish Political figures from other countries, made Anti-American statement against Us, Americans in general, and President Trump, I will publish the video.
I did view the forum of CFR, they have started replacing Jewish people with Muslims. 4 top positions have been replaced.

The Constitution specifically prohibits the President or any other government official from being a member of another nations parliament or government. Please provide the documentation to prove that our President is a member of the UK Parlament.

As for IRS Treaties ... with England... there are no treaties... we have memorandum of understandings and statutory law which provides for the lawful reporting or income earned by US Entities doing business in England... these types of IRS regulations are necessary to the proper functioning of the internal revenue service and don't mean our government is somehow compromised and part of some international conspiracy too set aside our sovereignty. 

You need to become educated on how foreign income is reported on US Tax Returns... and the formal agreements used to ensure both England and the US receive their portion of the taxes due on income earned overseas (in England) without double taxing the corporation or individual. 

The Federal Reserve Banks have formal relationships defined by statutory law and regulations governing international monetary policy... The exchange rates, methods for settlement of international transactions etc, all require formal agreements.  That doesn't mean the Federal Reserve is part of some UK system of banking... controlled by the English Government.  You simply are way over your head when it comes to your knowledge of international banking and settlements.

English voters are in control of who becomes a member of parliament... the people remove members of parliament, white members of parliament are subject to removal in England, just as white members of the Congress are subject to removal from office in the US... thru elections.

Jewish politicians make all kinds of unofficial statements... some against US policy.  That doesn't mean Israel or that the Jewish people are enemies of the US... wake up, not every jew is pro-American any more than every American is pro-Jewish.

The CFR is a private institution with the right to promote whomever they like to run their organization... we all know that the CFR is pro-Globalism and anti-America policy is often supported by this rogue organization... we can all work to avoid their propaganda and to expose them for what they are... anti-Constitutionalist...

ALERT ALERT

Schumer Refusing To Help Border Kids
Wants To Hurt Trump Instead

The controversy over how underage illegal aliens are handled at the border is heating up — but Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer just rejected a good-faith proposal to fix the problem.

A growing number of people on both sides of the political aisle have expressed concern for border separations, which occur when migrants are caught breaking the law along the border while they have children with them, or when the often exploitative relationship between adults and minors at the border cannot be established.

A vast amount of mis-information and outright lying about the situation has muddied the water, making it tough to understand the situation in its entirety.

Both liberals and conservatives, however, have voiced their support for a better system that results in fewer family separations, and even President Donald Trump has indicated that he is willing to stand with Congress if they change the law.

Shockingly, however, it looks like one of the most well-known faces of the Democratic party isn’t willing to take action, and is instead playing politics in order to attack Trump.

On Tuesday, Schumer openly rejected a Republican proposal to fix the immigrant separation problem at the legislative level, and instead whined about the president.

“There are so many obstacles to legislation and when the president can do it with his own pen, it makes no sense,” Schumer stated, according to The Hill.

“Legislation is not the way to go here when it’s so easy for the president to sign it,” he complained.

Democrats Reject Bill To Keep Families Together At Border – Schumer Says He “Wants To Keep Focus On Trump”

Think about that for a second: The president’s job is to execute existing laws. The legislature’s job is to change or enact new laws when needed.

A senator elected to the legislature for exactly that purpose is now refusing to do his job and pass legislation, while simultaneously blaming the president for enforcing the existing laws, as he is sworn to do.

If there was any doubt that Schumer and the Democrats are playing politics instead of trying to actually help migrant families, the senator made his intentions clear: Obstruct and point fingers at Trump.

“Asked if that meant Democrats would not support a bill backed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to keep immigrant families together while seeking asylum on the U.S. border, Schumer said they want to keep the focus on Trump,” The Hill explained.

Make no mistake: The Democrats dragging their feet and refusing to back legislation already drafted by Republicans will prolong the problems at the border.

“Schumer’s opposition to a legislative fix means there likely won’t be a quick end to the emotional images of immigrant children being separated from their families unless Trump backs down,” The Hill reported.

“Democrats want to keep the pressure on Trump instead of having Congress assume responsibility for the growing crisis,” the news outlet continued.

Again: There’s a solution ready to go, with Republicans including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ready to support it. Yet Democrats like Schumer apparently believe that scoring political points against Trump is more important than helping broken families on the border, even as their own liberal voters demand action.

“Congress alone can fix it,” stated Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Monday.

“I support, and all of the senators of the Republican conference support, a plan that keeps families together,” McConnell agreed.

“We need to fix the problem and it requires a legislative solution,” he said.

Yet Democrats refuse to budge.

This “do nothing but blame Trump” response from the left should prove beyond a doubt that all the tears and hand-wringing from liberals are disingenuous. They’re for show. If it was truly about helping innocent kids at the border, Schumer and his fellow Democrats could act right now.

If their priority was actually to solve the problem and help broken families, scoring points against Trump shouldn’t even be a concern. Even if they believed he was being stubborn on the issue, they could take the high road by doing their jobs and supporting bipartisan legislation.

They don’t, because solving the problem was never their goal. They are playing political games and using devastated children as pawns, while pretending that the president is the monster.

That’s sick… and the American people need to see exactly who is doing the obstruction.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
