Bill Clinton Criticizes Trump Over DACA Decision

Former President Bill Clinton condemned the Trump administration’s decision to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, suggesting the decision will “crush their dreams and weaken the American dream for the rest of us.”

In a statement published to his Facebook page late Tuesday, Clinton said rescinding DACA was “wrong because it’s bad policy that solves no pressing problem and raises new ones.”

Clinton, who was impeached following allegations of sexual misconduct, called Trump’s actions “irresponsible.”

“Most of all, it’s wrong because it’s cruel to send these young people to places many of them have never lived and do not know. For them this is home. The United States is their home,” Clinton said.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday that DACA will begin to be phased out over the next six months to allow Congress time to agree on a legislative solution.

DACA, a controversial program that provided protection to roughly 800,000 children, was signed into law in 2012 by former President Barack Obama through an executive order.

Obama published a lengthy post on his Facebook page Tuesday afternoon, in which he called Trump’s decision to end DACA “cruel.”

“This is about young people who grew up in America – kids who study in our schools, young adults who are starting careers, patriots who pledge allegiance to our flag,” Obama said.

“These Dreamers are Americans in their hearts, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper.”

Obama said he was forced to sign DACA into law through an executive order because Congress would not put a bill on his desk that allowed the children of illegal immigrants to stay in the country legally.

Obama was rebuked by the courts on several occasions for using executive powers bypass Congress and pass immigration orders.

In June 2016, the Supreme Court blocked several of Obama’s controversial executive actions regarding immigration.

Echoing a similar tone to that of Obama’s, Clinton called on Congress to “act immediately to protect their status and pave the way for their future and America’s future.”
