In these short eight months since Donald Trump was inaugurated as President of the United States (and before during campaign season), it's felt like a lifetime of walking backward on progress and all of the things that truly make America great.
I mean, I think it's safe to safe he's a pretty epic pile of shit.
And in the latest on ways your president is absolutely fucking up the entire thread of America, it's becoming more and more likely that Trump will end DACA (after a six-month delay, reported by Politico).
IF YOU ARE NOT A SUPPORTER OF DACA, YOU ARE NOT A PATRIOT. YOU ARE NOT WHAT AMERICA EMBRACES AND EMBODIES.
What is DACA?
DACA is the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. It is an American immigration policy founded by the Obama administration in June 2012. DACA allows certain illegal immigrants who entered the country as minors, to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit.
The average DACA recipient is 26 & came to US at age 6.
91% DACA recipients are employed
WHO is eligible for DACA?
LET'S TALK ABOUT DACA recipients:
IF DACA IS ENDED:
#DREAMERS will lose their work permits, their driver's license will expire, they'll lose their jobs, and they lose protection from being deported.
HOW DREAMERS POSITIVELY AFFECT OUR ECONOMY:
"A study conducted this year by the American Action Forum, a center-right policy group, estimates that deporting 11 million illegal immigrants would cost between $400 billion and $600 billion.
Usurping 6.8 million illegal immigrant workers from the American economy would cause immediate uncertainty and shortage of labor for potentially millions of small businesses. Firms will be forced to raise prices or allocate more resources to refilling their pool of workers.
Repealing the action would also deprive public universities of millions of dollars in tuition paid by the nearly 50 percent of deferred action beneficiaries enrolled in college. Trump knows that’s a bad deal for the government, the economy, and future employers."
