Donald Trump Removes First DREAMer from America
This is simply immoral.
It has happened. I knew in my heart it would occur at some point as I am convinced there is a very dangerous man sitting in the Oval Office.
The first DREAMer deportation of the Trump presidency has now taken place. To play to those who will not study hard enough to get a good paying job, or take responsibility for their station in life, Trump instead resorted in the campaign and now from the White House to help angry white men feel better about themselves. Striking out at smart and skilled DREAMers is the way Trump hopes to mollify rural whites.
What is known at this time is still not fully in focus but a 23-year-old man brought to the U.S. as a child, and protected by the Obama administration’s DACA policy, was deported and barred reentry in California. This is highly upsetting and concerning for all who grasp the wrongness of such a decision.
There is no doubt that Democratic lawmakers and advocacy groups have every reason to jump on the case to rightly argue the Trump administration is breaking the president’s commitment to “show great heart” to young people who are illegally in our nation through no fault of their own.
Trump has delayed any action on so-called DREAMers despite his agencies’ overall get-tough policies on undocumented immigrants and foreign workers.
This story will have legs and Trump can not escape the heat and scorn that will erupt. I know Trump does not understand or appreciate our country’s historical narrative, but I suspect in the near future with the blowback from this case he will have a chance to hear it loud and clear.
