Trump should not play the Art of the Deal with “Dreamers” on immigration

“Eight hundred thousand young immigrants, known as ‘dreamers,’ are today hoping against hope that the president of the United States is engaging in some tactic from his book, The Art of the Deal. Otherwise, they just got the rug pulled out from under them. Inexplicably, last Sunday, the White House issued a set of ‘principles’ (more accurately, demands) for any legislation to remove the cloud of uncertainty hanging over young people brought or sent here as children and who are undocumented. President Obama had, via a legally questionable administrative order, instituted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to prevent the deportation of these young immigrants and grant them a temporary legal status. President Trump recently cancelled that program, but gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative solution.” (10/11/17)
