That was the name of the game during President Obama’s time in office.
If he didn’t like a law, he would sign an executive order to circumvent Congress and change it.
That’s antithetical to the way the Founding Fathers wanted our system to work.
There is no question that Obama’s DACA program violated the Constitution.
That’s why so many Trump supporters are happy that the DOJ officially announced today that DACA would be scrapped and Congress would be tasked with figuring out the next step.
President Obama, who clearly intends to bash Trump at every turn going forward, has just weighed in on the move.
From Washington Examiner:
“Some 800,000 young people stepped forward, met rigorous requirements, and went through background checks. And America grew stronger as a result,” Obama said in a Facebook statement.
“But today, that shadow has been cast over some of our best and brightest young people once again,” Obama said.
“To target these young people is wrong – because they have done nothing wrong. It is self-defeating – because they want to start new businesses, staff our labs, serve in our military, and otherwise contribute to the country we love. And it is cruel,” Obama added.
Obviously, Obama is completely wrong here.
He is doing the typical Democrat thing by pulling on heart strings and pretending this move was only made to hurt immigrants.
In reality, the move was made to help the country and shift the power back to Washington that Obama had usurped for so many years.
Barack. You had 8 years. It’s over. Let us clean up your mess in peace.
