Hope for ‘Dream­ers’

Houston Chronicle - - WORLD - Robert M. Louie, Hous­ton

Re­gard­ing “Dems say they have DACA deal with Trump” (Page A1, Thurs­day), the Democrats may have a deal, but they don’t have a law that can be en­acted by the president. If they are will­ing to deal with the president, then they should be will­ing to deal with the Repub­li­can Con­gress to get a law to pro­tect chil­dren who had ben­e­fited from President Obama’s De­ferred Ac­tion for Child­hood Ar­rivals, or DACA, pro­gram.

The kids are in a spe­cial cat­e­gory and should be treated a lit­tle dif­fer­ently. But they need to get in line with all those who are legally go­ing through the im­mi­gra­tion process. The ques­tion is, where in line do they need to go?

And an age limit must be im­posed be­cause we can’t al­low those cur­rently com­ing in il­le­gally to get the same ben­e­fits. Oth­er­wise this will never end.
