Trump May End DACA Tomorrow

[Content Note: Nativism.]

Noor Al-Sibai at Raw Story: Trump to End Obama-Era Dreamers Program as Early as Tomorrow. "Donald Trump could announce his plans to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program 'as early as tomorrow,' Fox News reports. As The Hill notes, DACA granted work permits and deferred deportation for nearly 800,000 undocumented people who arrived in the United States as children."

DACA is an effective and compassionate program. There is literally no sensible or decent reason to end it. The only purpose of ending it is to pander to white supremacist nativists.

This is truly malice just for its own sake.

Even crueller given that Trump said in January that DREAMers "shouldn't be very worried" about being deported, because "I do have a big heart."

I loathe him.
