The fate of 'Dreamers' rests with President Trump as he alone put a target on their backs.
Everyone should understand that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals issue is entirely on the shoulders of President Donald Trump (“Government shutdowns are for losers,” Jan. 22). There was never a deadline or demand to change or end this program.
The Republicans who appear on various network shows are very fond of saying something like “The American people elected us to...” Well, the American people, by a huge margin, want “Dreamers” to be able to stay in the country and find their way to citizenship. It is clear that President Trump intends to blackmail the Democrats and those Republicans who still have a conscience by insisting on funding for this useless southern wall in exchange for his support for the Dreamers.
Everyone has heard him ask for a “love bill” that he would be happy to sign. I wouldn’t bet anything on that happening.
