DACA.

Trump moved to end DACA (putting in place a 6-month period for Congress to act). But at the same time, he has praised both the program and the so-called Dreamers.

Possibly cruel to the individual, with the intent of preventing larger, greater harm to many, including the children themselves.

And why, amother?


Can't prove intent, only point out that they're the ones who benefit from these policies

That was only one of several reasons, and I find it hard to believe that you are genuinely okay promoting human trafficking and rape. Because those are the unintended consequences of lax border enforcement.

To me, those are not minor consequences.

If you want to argue that we should address immigration law, I'm 100 percent behind you. Yes, I agree that separating children from their parents is a bad thing, though only a small percentage of minors arriving are doing so with their parents.

But insisting on a policy that makes you feel better -- no matter how many girls are raped; no matter how many immigrants are left to die in the desert by coyotes; no matter how much child trafficking goes on as a result -- that's a level of cruelty that I can't comprehend.

But there is neither east nor west
Nor border nor breed nor birth
When two strong men stand face to face
Though they come from the ends of the earth

I'm guessing you don't remember the Reagan era. Trickle-down economics worked pretty well -- it just doesn't work fast.



That's funny. Reaganomics works slow but Trumpnomics works super fast. Trump supporters have been touting Trump's economy since his election--even before he took office! It was in the toilet under Obama and then like magic, the day Trump was elected it suddenly took off.
