....not a surprise but Trump confirms the end of DACA via tweets [ idiot ]......


Donald Trump Heralds DACA Demise Announcement In Base-Baiting Tweets

....As promised, President Donald Trump this morning will announce he is ending President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program – DACA. Trump’s decision delays enforcement for six months, dumping it in Congress’s lap; now it’s up to that dysfunctional group to put something else in place to help those people who were brought to this country by their parents, without documentation, as young children.

Technically, Trump is not making the announcement; Attorney General Jeff Sessions drew the short straw and gets to pull the trigger:

Congress, get ready to do your job – DACA!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 5, 2017

While running for POTUS, Trump promised his base he would scrub DACA; more recently he’s taken a different script and playing a more DREAMer-loving character, as some of his party’s top dogs, and business leaders, have urged him to assume that role. This morning, however, he was back to Base-Baiting Trump:

Make no mistake, we are going to put the interest of AMERICAN CITIZENS FIRST!

The forgotten men & women will no longer be forgotten.
— The Trump Train (@The_Trump_Train) September 5, 2017

In other Trump Twitter news, POTUS announced this morning he will allow South Korea and Japan to buy a “substantially increased amount” of “highly sophisticated military equipment” in the wake of North Korea’s alleged hydrogen-bomb test last week:

I am allowing Japan & South Korea to buy a substantially increased amount of highly sophisticated military equipment from the United States.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 5, 2017



what a piece of.................?!

Deporting 800,000 children?
This will not bother the GOP at all.

There are quite a few GOP congresscritters who oppose the demise of DACA - there is a decent chance that he could be overruled.

There is also the possibility of the courts intervening due to entrapment issues. These individuals registered because the government promised to protect them from deportation, now it wants to use that very registration as a means to deport them.

One can hope that there is some sanity out there, but I wouldn't hold my breath. And if you thought Sanctuary cities was divisive, this could get much worse.

"Military participation is often a way for immigrant residents to become citizens. Since many people seek citizenship for its financial and social benefits, the promise of citizenship can be seen as a means of motivating persons to do dangerous activities such as fight in wars. For example, a 2009 article in The New York Times said that the United States Military was recruiting "skilled immigrants who are living in this country with temporary visas" by promising an opportunity to become citizens "in as little as six months" in exchange for service in Afghanistan and Iraq where US forces are "stretched thin". The option was not open to illegal immigrants. One estimate was that in 2009 the US military had 29,000 foreign-born people currently serving who were not American citizens. Spouses of citizens or non-citizens who served in the military also have less difficulty becoming citizens

Made the mistake of listening to Sessions just after eating breakfast.
barf smiley

We have a new definition of the rule of law based on pardoning one old man for unconscionable abuses and then deporting one million innocent children.

Or, to make it simple -- the government has just given all "Americans" permission to kill all the brown people.

Sessions was not going to defend DACA in court if lawsuits proceeded. Trump threw Sessions a bone and threw Congress under the bus. Mind you, Congress should have done something long ago. They were against anything Obama wanted so naturally they did nothing. Kind of like healthcare. Now congress has to match their political diatribes against Obama with what the GOP base is now for (DACA and Obamacare). Their own behavior comes back to bite them in the moon pie.

This is not "Starship Troopers". There is a path to citizenship through military service, but it's not simple.

And lots of them end up being deported after serving. Because they committed a crime after serving.

The only criminals the US government wants are citizen-criminals. And they keep getting elected / hired to the White House.

I should accept that Trump's White House is a curve that gets lower and lower and lower and lower and lower, well past what one thought was the bottom of the graph.

That's false. It does not apply to undocumented immigrants, including dreamers.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan
