So? Trump's ending DACA wasn't forced upon him. It was a calculated decision that allowed him to use DACA recipients as hostages in exchange for his anti-immigration agenda and funding for his wall.
Notice that Trump's administration is doing nothing to defend DACA in Texas courts right now. Sessions has decided NOT to defend DACA this round.
At any moment Trump could pardon (amnesty) DACA recipients and allow them paths to green cards and citizenship. But that won't give him the leverage he so desperately needs to implement his anti-immigration agenda by holding DACA recipients hostage.
In 1986, Congress and Reagan enacted a sweeping overhaul that gave legal status to up to 3 million immigrants without authorization to be in the country, if they had come to the U.S. before 1982.
It's just another example of the Saul Alinsky tactic of holding an opponent up to his own values. They are just using this. Democrats don't give a rat's patoot about the children. They sure as heck didn't in the Obama admin when they had all those children in the holding pens.... you know the ones from a few years back that somehow turned up again when they thought they could make the Trump admin look really bad....then oops it was the Obama admin's own policy. But then there's the issue of Marxism overtaking the Church. I know a woman from Brazil, Catholic who talked about this....then there's also the World Council of Churches, which is a UN based thing, and we know the UN wants a One World Government in which it acts as the governing head.

It's ironic that so many cry, "Separation of church and state!" yet run to religion when it suits their ideological goals.
Who here is running to religion?
OP stated that the Trump Administration does not exhibit the Christian values they pretend to hold ... how is that running to religion?
It's pointing out hypocrisy, using the prima facie witnesses of Christian leaders ... who should Willtell have cited, Muslim Mullas?

Trump could give DACA recipients amnesty AND pardons. It's been done before. www.businessinsider.com...

President Trump is not separating these families. These families know the risk when they illegally cross into the us and are caught. What they are hoping for is amnesty and use the children as 'anchor babies'. Mexicans for years would take pregnant women to the Port of Entry bridges, wait till the water broke and then step across 'the line'. They then received a free ride to the hospital, free medical care and a baby that is a US Citizen and cannot be deported.
This is what is happening. These are not poor people looking for a new life. These are schemers looking for freebies...
Just stay on your side of the border and you won't get separated
Trump has rejected multiple Congressional bipartisan drafts that would have taken care of DACA. Why?
