Skip to comments.Trump vows to sign immigration executive order: 'We're going to be taking care of DACA'
Posted on 07/15/2020 2:06:09 AM PDT by USA Conservative
President Trump Tuesday said he would sign an executive order to take care of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients and emphasize merit-based education.
Were going to be taking care of DACA, Trump said at a Rose Garden briefing. Im going to be signing immigration action, very big merit-based immigration action.
Trump added that Joe Biden would vastly expand low-skilled immigration: I like skills, I like merit.
The president said the order would be coming "very soon."
"Even conservative Republicans want to see something happen with DACA," Trump said. "Democrats had their chance for three years."
"They always turned it down," he said, adding that Democrats used the debate over childhood arrivals as a "political tool."
Trump said last Friday he would sign an executive order which would include a road to citizenship for DACA recipients.
Im going do a big executive order, I have the power to do it as president and Im going to make DACA a part of it, Trump said in an interview with Telemundo anchor Jose Diaz-Balart.
But well put it in and then were probably going to be taking it out. Were working out the legal complexities right now, Trump added, but did not expand on what he meant.
Trump, who has pledged to end DACA since he was on the campaign trail in 2015 when he called the program an illegal executive order, said that the bill wouldnt just be for temporary relief but would be a far more encompassing merit-based bill.
DACA currently serves as a protection for young immigrants that were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, also referred to as Dreamers, to allow them to legally study, work and remain in the U.S. without fear of deportation.

We do not need any more immigrants for 3-4 DECADES.
The average DACA age is above 18 YO.
They will NEVER vote for Trump. Why is he isolating his base this close to the election.? Trump is his own worst enemy, in MANY ways.
The locomotive and caboose of the Cheap Labor Express.
WH globalists run a tight ship. Why do you think they ran Bannon out of town?
To those thinking this is blanket amnesty, first, DACA is here. He has to fix it. He provided a clue when he said that he likes “skills and amnesty.”
Perhaps these kids will be given a chance to prove themselves, but if they mess up, join gangs, etc., the hammer will come down hard.
I have no idea. But he has worked hard to keep his promises despite every piece of crap they have thrown at him from the beginning.
Imagine what could have happened if he had been treated like “Emperor” Obama?
Oh my goodness! Thanks, automatic word fill in. He said he likes skills and MERIT, not amnesty. OMG, what a mistake to make in this thread. LOL!
I’m not thinking amnesty but a E.O. that continues DACA for one-two(?) more years during which the DACA-ites will need to apply for citizenship. After that time if a DACA person cannot prove that they are well on their way to becoming a US citizen, they get a one-way trip to the country they actually are citizens of.
Its not amnesty
Amnesty is what the Dems want, they want the ability for the “dreamers” to bring in mom, dad, lil sis, big brother, grandpop, grandma, cousins, half cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, the milkman, the mailman, etc
That is amnesty, it allows for unfettered immigration/illegal immigration to continue.
What Trump wants to do is keep the ones who are working hard, going to school, own businesses, who are not criminals. Even though I would prefer all deported, I can live with this as a compromise.
Fixing a Obama boondoggle would be another Trump accomplishment, sure it may not be 100% of what we want, but keeping the ones who work or go to school and dumping the criminals, is probably 80% of what we want, which is better then nothing.
Merit based immigration, I like the sound of that.
When his basic instincts seem right on..and then he does a 180...yep...it’s the Wokesters.
Who says crime doesnt pay?
If you are a lawyer, politician, or lobbyist
It pays very well
Are you really that stupid? Giving those “6-month old criminals” anything at all other than a ticket back to wherever their parents snuck in from rewards the criminal action of their parents.
I think its more a sign of good will. His immigration policies are keeping millions of illegals out. I believe there are only 600,000 DACAs. If he works out a deal for the ones who actually are merit based, I dont have a problem with it. Theyve bern here for years anyway. The only other option is to deport them. He has taken a very hardline on immigration. Let him do what the rats have failed to do and take it off the table for them.
The average age of DACA recipients was 25 years old last year, according to a national survey of 3,063 DACA holders in August 2017. The vast majority 82.5 percent were under 30.
The survey, from Tom K. Wong, an assistant professor of political science at the University of California, San Diego, found that when the DACA enrollees arrived in the United States they were 6-and-a-half years old on average, and 54 percent of them were under the age of 7.
No convictions or arrests or gang ties and good grades would be my guess.
Opening up this Daca can of worms this close to Nov is
Daca will flood millions into this country and flip 5 red states to the dem side for ever .
No Trump voter cares about this issue .
Javanka are the enemy and dumb and clueless learjet libs .
Stop the Daca pandering to million of Mexican socialists.
Im not but you are. You seem to be confused on what DACA is. Do a google search and try to learn something. I know its hard but try anyway.
Probably true but they were not when their parents brought them here.
destroy the country and lose the election with amnesty for millions of radical Mexican leftists .<<<
Because conservatives would then rather see a Biden/whoever presidency and a liberal supreme court. Wow, the FLeepers sure have this one figured out! Trump can’t possibly win now.
FLeepers=NeverTrumpers disguised as FReepers.
Sounds awful. Send illegals home already!
