Good rid­dance to DACA

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - JOHN W. LILLPOP Pine Grove, Cal­i­for­nia

Once again Pres­i­dent Trump has made rule of law para­mount in de­ter­min­ing his ad­min­is­tra­tion’s poli­cies, this time with re­spect to the bla­tantly un­con­sti­tu­tional and un­law­ful ac­tions taken uni­lat­er­ally by for­mer Pres­i­dent Obama to shield il­le­gal aliens from im­mi­gra­tion laws passed by Congress (“Mex­ico says it will em­brace Dream­ers ‘with open arms,’” Web, Sept. 5).

Mr. Trump cor­rectly rea­soned that the de­por­ta­tion amnesty Mr. Obama granted Dream­ers was in vi­o­la­tion of the Con­sti­tu­tion and oth­er­wise not in the best in­ter­ests of Amer­i­can ci­ti­zens. By his ac­tions this week, the pres­i­dent has re-af­firmed that U.S. laws ap­ply to all U.S. peo­ple, re­gard­less of race, na­tion­al­ity or po­lit­i­cal clout. Per­haps now the His­panic anti-white con­tin­gent will re­al­ize that be­ing His­panic does not re­lieve any­one from hav­ing to live un­der the rule of law.

What’s more, Mr. Trump’s de­ci­sion to re­voke the DACA pro­gram ad­vances the prospects of those prospec­tive ci­ti­zens who will make the ef­fort to come to the United States legally.

Ku­dos, Pres­i­dent Trump.
