But on the night of Sept. 13 and the morn­ing of the 14th, when hair was on fire across Washington and so­cial media, there was no deal and noth­ing had been de­cided, ex­cept that ev­ery­one said they wanted a deal, which is what ne­go­tia­tors al­ways say.

In other words, the whole episode changed pretty much noth­ing. Any­one who fol­lowed Trump dur­ing the cam­paign knows he is headed to­ward some

sort of ac­com­mo­da­tion for DACA re­cip­i­ents. And any­one who fol­lows the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion and Congress knows there will be show­downs on Capi­tol Hill over the wall and other bor­der se­cu­rity and en­force­ment mea­sures. That is where the DACA is­sue stood be­fore the freak­out of Wed­nes­day night and Thurs­day morn­ing, and that is where the is­sue stood af­ter­ward.

All that panic for no rea­son. Peo­ple are on hair trig­ger these days. They go off be­fore they know what is go­ing on. The DACA fi­asco should be a les­son.

By­ron York is chief po­lit­i­cal cor­re­spon­dent for The Washington Ex­am­iner.
