Skip to comments.Business Leaders Urge Trump to Leave DACA Alone After Court Ruling
Posted on 07/11/2020 10:00:25 AM PDT by semimojo
A group of prominent business leaders urged President Trump on Saturday to leave in place a program affecting roughly 800,000 young immigrants who are shielded from deportation, saying it would disrupt the economy and impact the battle against the coronavirus...
The signers of the letter included executives with Amazon, General Motors, Hilton Worldwide, Target, Apple, Google and Facebook, as well as groups like the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and almost every sector of the manufacturing industry
This is no time to disrupt the economic recovery of our companies and communities, nor time to jeopardize the health and safety of these vulnerable individuals, the letter said
DACA is going to be just fine, Mr. Trump said, adding that he was going to issue a big executive order. I have the power to do it as president and Im going to make DACA a part of it.
Then he immediately said, But, we put it in, and well probably going to then be taking it out. At another point, he said that it would be a very big bill that would call for merit-based immigration and include a DACA provision. He then said there would be a road to citizenship in the executive order which he repeatedly confused with a piece of legislation. Presidents cannot create a pathway to citizenship without congressional action.
Almost immediately after Mr. Trumps interview, a White House spokesman issued a statement that was quite different from what the president said. The statement said that Mr. Trump was working on an executive order to establish a merit-based immigration system to further protect U.S. workers, something that the White House has been planning for weeks. The statement made clear it would not relate to DACA or a road to citizenship.

WEAR THE MASK -BAKE THE FKN CAKE.
Consider the source folks - Maggie Haberman again. Clinton’s source at the Slimes.
The country just laid off 40-50 million workers due to the Communist Chinese Virus
There’s plenty of workers to go around without DACA Cacas
No doubt there are thousands who'd happily take back and fill those positions. Just stop pleading hardship for DACA people...they knew the rules when they came here and just because they've abused that privilege for years does not mean they get to stay! Time to go home and build up your own countries!
Business leaders to Trump: Stop! We Democrats need this to politically bludgeon you.
By the way, I have no empirical evidence, but it seems like Hispanics are turning away from Democrats. Many seem really hard working trying to build a life for themselves and don’t want the chaos they escaped. Not a fan of DACA for many reasons, but I’ll trust Trump at this point.
Business leaders want money now. They could care less about the future of the country.
Cannot do what? O'Dungheap's assistants did all kinds of unlawful stuff while he slept. Literally. That clown slept till noon then reviewed what laws they signed.
SCOTUS has repeatedly passed all types of unConstitutional laws which was not within their purview. SCOTUS is to interpret existing law. But they have assume the role of law makers, something that Congress is supposed to do.
Have I found a Trump sticker I can safely put on my car?
The headline reminds me of the ‘leave britney alone’ guy.
So you think she forged the letter?
What's your problem with her reporting on this?
A lot of them didn't know the rules when they were brought here.
Doh! Didn’t even see that at first. Thanks for pointing out. She is on the DNC payroll. One of the most biased NYT writers, and that’s a tough challenge.
They’re scared because when Trump says he’ll fix it ,LOL
The Globalist Chamber of Commerce? The local branches were good, but now even the local are AntiAmerican...
Does not sound like these bozos think the President is going to amnesty the illegals.
Which came first, the letter from globalist anti-American business leaders, or Trump pandering on Spanglish language TV?
“A lot of them didn’t know the rules when they were brought here.”
so if your parents had you in the car when they robbed a house and you grew up with the stolen items/money, you think you still get to keep them, just because as a child maybe you werent aware they were stolen?
as you grew out of childhood and started learning laws of the country, city town you live in (which should be happening for all children, but likely isn’t) you would have seen your parents were in the wrong.
as an individual, would it not be on you to then choose to stand with right or wrong? to keep siding with wrong and claiming “you were a child then” when you are now in your teens or older, is equally wrong. you’ve had years to go to the authorities and make amends, even if it means hardship for you or your parents.
Same with illegals and the minors they brought or sent across. wrong. the kids may not have understood at the moment it happened, but damn well understood at some point after. it’s their obligation to do the right thing, go to home country and wait and apply properly. ANY who did not and choose to stay in USA are legally wrong. No way they can ever be right without self deporting and going through proper application and wait their time, and if they have crimes or valid reasons they should not be legally admitted back then they don’t belong here.
no other country on earth puts up with the illegal immigration crap the way the USA does. why are we so wimpy it’s killing the best country in the world. if the USA wasn’t the best why do some amny people come?
God (Biblical) is real, and He is neither fooled, nor confused. He is not making excuses and He will not be mocked.
Lots of people trying to get one over on HIm and they will lose “bigly” in the end.
God doesn’t see things by people’s standard of ok or not. God sees by His standard. it’s biblical. we people don’t get to change it, we either live our best to God’s standard or we arein sin, displeasing/against God.
This is more fake news.
DACA needs to go because it’s unlawful.
Something real and permanent that goes through a legislative process and addresses the security concerns and those under DACA needs drafted.
This is just a high tech hit job trying to make Trump look bad.
