BAD TRUMP: Trump Breaks Campaign Promise ... KEEPS DACA

No one’s surprised, right? For months, every time Trump’s been asked about DREAMers, he’s said something about having a “big heart” or hinted that young illegals will be “pleasantly surprised” or whatever.
There were two Obama amnesties. The second one, DAPA, was for illegal-immigrant parents of children who are U.S. citizens by virtue of having been born here. That one’s been frozen in litigation for years and is now rescinded effective immediately, by order of DHS Secretary John Kelly. The first amnesty, DACA, was for illegal-immigrant children who were brought here while they were young, have lived here for years, and who meet certain other qualifications. Enrollees are granted legal status and work permits, renewable every two years. Trump had a lot of options when he took office on how to handle that — he could have rescinded DACA entirely, as he promised to do last year; he could have kept the current permits in place but phased out the program by making those permits non-renewable; he could have maintained the program while closing it to new enrollees. Or he could have gone full Obama by keeping everything in place. The program stays open, current permits are renewable, new enrollees are welcome.
He went full Obama.
Q. Will this affect DACA?
A. This rescission [of DAPA] will not affect the terms of the original DACA program as outlined in the June 15, 2012 memorandum.
Q. Does this mean that DACA recipients will not be able to apply for a three-year work authorization, as established in the DAPA memorandum?
A. DACA recipients will continue to be eligible as outlined in the June 15, 2012 memorandum. DACA recipients who were issued three-year extensions before the district court’s injunction will not be affected, and will be eligible to seek a two-year extension upon their expiration. No work permits will be terminated prior to their current expiration dates.
