Former President Barack Obama has put on his gloves and he is ready to get in the ring with Donald Trump. In order to protect immigrant children, Obama is willing to come out of his retirement to show the White House what a REAL president looks like.
As reported by The Los Angeles Times, President Obama said he would regard any effort to round up and deport Dreamers as an attack on American “core values” that would cause him to speak out publicly.
Dreamers, young people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, which Obama has already warned Trump about during his campaign trail.
I will urge the president-elect and the incoming administration to think long and hard before they are endangering the status of what for all practical purposes are American kids. These are kids who were brought here by their parents. They did nothing wrong.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Obama’s administration has protected more than 700,000 such young people from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA. Under the terms of that policy, Dreamers are allowed temporarily to live and work legally in the U.S.
Obama promised to speak out if he felt our core values were in trouble. Prepare to see more of Obama. Trump’s about to get politically knocked out.
