Republican Iowa Rep. Steve King is disappointed with the Trump administration due to inaction on former President Obama’s executive amnesties.
The immigration hawk told The Daily Caller Thursday that he’s even starting to “wonder” if he and Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly “may not share opinions on the rule of law” when it comes to amnesty.
President Donald Trump ran for president calling for strict immigration enforcement and said he would immediately end amnesty programs for illegal immigrants. However, hundreds of people receive amnesty every day.
King told TheDC that he is “very disappointed on the lack of action” from the White House on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA). Over 750,000 people have received amnesty from DACA since 2012 and implementation by DAPA was held up by a court decision.
Trump could end DACA and DAPA through an executive order, and said on the campaign trail he would “immediately terminate” them. Republican Pennsylvania Rep. Lou Barletta previously told TheDC that he wasn’t worried about Trump’s inaction so far on the issue, but King said “every day this has been a violation of the Constitution.”Read the rest of the story HERE.
