Six GOP lawmakers in the House of Representatives betrayed the Republican Party this week when they signed a letter calling on President Donald Trump to preserve former President Barack Obama’s DACA amnesty for 800,000 illegal immigrants. These Republicans are serving their own interests rather than standing with Trump to end DACA and they need to be exposed for the obstructionists that they are.
“We write to express our support for maintaining the protections of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) for current recipients of the policy,” the letter stated, according to Breitbart. “We understand and deeply respect the rule of law, and firmly believe that those who have violated the law must face fair consequences. We also have a responsibility to apply the law in the manner required by the circumstances.”
The six Republicans who signed the letter were New York Rep. Daniel Donovan, California Rep. David Valadao, Nebraska Rep. Don Bacon, Florida Rep. Carlos Curbelo, California Rep. Jeff Denham and Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.
The other 236 Republicans refused to sign the letter, which Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform, said “demonstrates that there is a clear consensus within the President’s party that DACA should be terminated.”
“The president should focus honoring the promises and pledges he made to the American public during his campaign,” he added, going on to say that Trump has the advantage in part because Democrats are under great pressure to preserve the DACA amnesty.
“Just the mere rumor that [DACA] repeal is in the works … sent the Democrats leadership apoplectic,” Mehlman said, adding that Trump “has to start holding them publicly accountable” for their unpopular pro-immigration policies.”
