Shortly after Attorney General Jeff Sessions broke the news that Trump would be ending the “Dreamers” program, also known as Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Alfonso Aguilar appeared on CNN to voice his disgust. “It’s insulting and sad,” said the president of Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles. “If the goal of the President of the United States is to deal with ‘heart,’ as he said, with DACA recipients, then the president failed miserably.”
President Donald Trump is expected to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy before September 5th. On that day, more than 10 states’ attorneys general will sue the Trump administration to kill DACA. Almost no one believes the Trump administration will defend the policy. But to end it would represent a profound moral failure, because the individuals punished would be those who have never broken the law of their own will.
