Former Vice President Joe Biden condemned the Trump administration’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, more commonly known as DACA, on Tuesday.
In a Facebook post, Biden wrote:
“These people are all Americans. So let’s be clear: throwing them out is cruel. It is inhumane. And it is not America.”
Biden joined a mounting chorus of activists, business leaders and politicians from both sides of the aisle who questioned Trump’s decision.
Under DACA, nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants brought into the country as minors received deferred deportation and were allowed to apply for
a work permit
Mr. Biden couldn’t have said it any better: when a man without a moral compass has power, he’s a danger to us all. If Trump opposes DACA then he should say so, and he should vow to not sign any DACA bill that comes out of congress. But, of course, he knows that most people support DACA–so what does he do? He washes his hands of it, and puts the ball in congress’ court. Like everything else. That way, he can say he wasn’t pro-DACA to his gullible supporters, while not having to explain that he opposes DACA too. He is the ultimate con man.
