Trump.D Diary : W/E Fri 8th September 2017
Melania & I made a 2nd visit to Texas's continuing aid & recovery efforts. A great effort by all and a good example. My "Democrat side". on relief. Undoing Obama's Daca
Met some wonderful people again in Texas - great Americans all! Republicans are shocked that I agreed with the Democrat offer on Harvey relief. They must know by now that I am my own man!
The Daca (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) programme protects maybe 800,000 people in the US from deportation and provides temporary permits for work and study.In order to qualify for Daca, applicants under the age of 30 submit personal information to the Department of Homeland Security, pass an FBI background check, have a clean criminal record, and either be in school, recently graduated or have been honurably discharged from the military.
In exchange, the US government agrees to "defer" any action on their immigration status for a period of two years.
I have great love for these people and we must do something for them. Congress has 6 months to formulate replacement legislation.
As usual, everyone assumes the worst but what happens for these people is up to Congress.
Unfriending Korea: Everything's on the table as Korea continues its illegal pursuit of nuclear arms. Sanctions against N. Korea and any country supporting them is a very good place to start.
