In A Surprising Statement, Obama Calls Trump’s Reversal On DREAMers ‘Self-Defeating,’ ‘Cruel’

7

Former President Barack Obama criticized the Trump administration for once again casting a shadow of deportation over young people who were brought to the country illegally as children.

“To target these young people is wrong, because they have done nothing wrong,” Obama wrote in a Facebook post. “It is self-defeating — because they want to start new businesses, staff our labs, serve in our military, and otherwise contribute to the country we love. And it is cruel.”

“Let’s be clear,” Obama said. “The action taken today isn’t required legally. It’s a political decision and a moral question.”

Obama renewed his call for Congress to grant permanent protection to these so-called DREAMers. Read more at NPR.

  1. This isn’t a surprise. Obama clearly said that this is one issue he would speak up about even if supposedly being quiet in private life.
    Too bad what he has to say hasn’t improved since his time off.
    New president given new directives from the American people. You had your chance and were so bad people wouldn’t even elect a politician.

  2. Why is this surprising? Of course he’ll put down Trump. He still thinks funding iran with billions of dollars in cash is kind and wonderful for American interests. In his confused mind he feels that he can understand what humans should be doing. What a nutcase.

  3. Barack Hussein Obama “passed” this law ILLEGALLY by bypassing Congress. So President Trump is reversing his ILLEGAL law and letting Congress pass a LEGAL law in the next 6 months. What’s wrong with that?
