CAMPAIGN PROMISE: Donald Trump’s Credibility Is on the Line with DACA Repeal

Ira Mehlman, a media spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform or FAIR, spoke with Breitbart News on President Trump’s complicated history with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, considering potential state litigation against the controversial program.
He told Breitbart News:
Trump made immigration a center piece of his campaign. One of the big reasons he was able to shake up the establishment and take the party away from insiders was that he made significant promises related to immigration. Immigration laws were not being enforced, immigration policies were not being carried out in a way that benefited the American people. Trump’s credibility is on the line to follow through with his promises including ending DACA.
Texas, along with 9 other states, issued an ultimatum to the Trump administration to rescind DACA by September 5 or have the program face a legal challenge from these states.
He furthered that ending the program which shields from deportation those who arrived in the country illegally as children did not entail a repeal. Instead, he argued all Trump needed to do was, “stop taking applicants for the program. Allow those with DACA statutes to have their two-year status to lapse. They won’t be targeted. Their immigration status will just revert to where they were before.”
