POLL: 73% Support President Trump’s Decision to End DACA
The narrative from the media is that President Trump’s decision to end DACA, which provided protection from deportation to so-called ‘Dreamers’, is extremely controversial.
A new poll from Progress Polls shows that 73% of respondents support an end to Obama’s DACA executive order, with 22% opposing it and 5% undecided.
The end of DACA has long been a campaign promise for President Trump. The controversial executive order, has served as a selling point for foreigners to come to the United States, knowing full-well that their children will have protection from deportation, even if the children were not born in the United States.
The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld an injunction which ruled that DACA was unconstitutional. Whether DACA is good or bad policy, courts have repeatedly ruled that the law is an unconstitutional overreach by Obama.
DACA essentially provided an administrative amnesty to certain classes of illegal immigrants. The establishment of this pseudo-amnesty by the Obama administration quickly garnered criticism by constitutional scholars, lawmakers, state and local law enforcement and the American People at large.
President Trump’s fervent disapproval of the unconstitutional executive order, and his calls for building a border wall quickly brought the Union for Border Patrol Agents to issue their first Presidential endorsement of all time, for Trump.
