Trump claims Democrats ‘abandoned’ DACA recipients, even though he canceled the program

CNBC.COM
– Trump’s administration made the move to end the program and force a divided Congress to come to a solution to shield the immigrants. President Donald Trump claimed in a Friday morning tweet that Democrats “badly” treated and “abandoned” the young undocumented immigrants protected by an Obama-era program. But Trump’s own administration ended Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and pushed a divided Congress to pas..Read more»

In 2016, the Supreme Court let stand a lower court ruling that blocked Obama’s executive order creating DACA, thus ending it.

It was unconstitutional. Trump advanced his own CONSTITUTIONAL version. The dems won’t have it. That’s on them.

I was intrigued by your analysis as I had no recollection of this happening. Further research shows that you appear to have confused two programs — DAPA and DACA. Here’s what happened. In June 2016, an equally divided (4-4) Supreme Court could not reach a decision, and therefore allowed a lower court ruling which blocked DAPA — NOT DACA. DAPA was for the parents of DACA recipients, and it had no effect on DACA.

There is no evidence to support your position.

Zeph, the link you shared succinctly proves Joe’s point. DACA was created by President Obama, and now President Trump is trying to simultaneously repeal it, and place the blame on Obama. However, two federal courts have now ruled President Trumps EO to repeal DACA as unconstitutional, so this will be up to the Supreme Court to decide.

New today, the Supreme Court refuses to intervene (yet) so the federal court order deeming Trump’s EO as unconstitutional stands. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-02-26/u-s-supreme-court-rebuffs-trump-won-t-hear-immigration-appeal
