Trump’s DACA Decision has Dems Furious but Obama Himself made it Temporary

The Democrats, supporters of illegal immigrations and bleeding-heart liberals have gone mad at President Donald Trump on his unfavorable views on DACA – Deferred Action on Child Arrivals. They want DACA to be made permanent, an amnesty and all that go with that ‘illegal’ action.

They sadly forget that the ‘father’ of DACA, President Barack Obama himself had made this benefit to children brought illegally by illegal immigrants purely a temporary measure, and NOT amnesty.

Trump first thought it should be totally scrapped. But later he somewhat softened his stand as he had said,” I love these children,” and asked Congress to enact a law to solve the problem. He has postponed deportations by six months and still the mad liberals and critics are calling him racist, inhumane and so on.

They totally forgot – or it’s a deliberate attempt to deceive the gullible superficial readers what Obama had said when he decided to stop the deportation of children brought by ‘illegal’ parents.

The Horn Editorial team ‘discovered’ that Barack Obama actually intended for the program to be temporary. When Obama first announced his controversial – and critics say unconstitutional - executive action in 2012, he referred to it as “temporary relief.”

“In the next few months, eligible individuals who do not present a risk to national security or public safety will be able to request temporary relief from deportation proceedings and apply for work authorization. Let’s be clear: This is not amnesty, this is not immunity, this is not a path to citizenship, and this is not a permanent fix.”

That’s what Obama had clearly stated.

He had added: “This is a temporary stop-gap measure that lets us focus our resources wisely while giving a degree of relief and hope to talented, driven, and patriotic young people.”

So where is the cause for outrage? President Obama had used the word ‘Temporary’ not once but twice, and did not make it ‘permanent.’

However, Trump-bashers don’t lose a moment, or any opening, any pretext to blast the President. Either they are habitual opponents or have completely lost their collective heads. Even the former Vice President Joe Biden criticized Trump’s action as ‘cruel and inhumane.’  Has Biden also lost his head or going with the flow of critics?

TV personality and himself liberal, Keith Olbermann called out all Trump supporters in a tweet, saying, “After DACA not only is Trump a racist, but anyone who supports him and isn’t a racist, is far worse.” He also lost it, lost his head, lost his reasoning, lost his clear thinking and lost his balance. He needs cataract surgery or a new hearing aid – or better still, a new brain transplant.

They don’t read, don’t understand and don’t want to do these things. They just want to blast Trump. They are brimming with hate Trump and hate the truth.
