If there is one thing that every American can agree on it’s that President Trump sure knows how to make an Exit. Just last night, right before he went to bed, he put out one final message that changed EVERYTHING that happened with DACA today.
Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do). If they can’t, I will revisit this issue!

Some people are gonna try to say this is Trump “flipping” on an issue, but that could not be further from the truth. He has ALWAYS supported the people in DACA, just not the program. President Trump wants it done right by Congress.
However, he will do what is necessary IF Congress fails to actually accomplish anything on this major issue like the love to do.
The real issue with DACA is that it’s just a watered down version of the DREAM Act. The DREAM Act is the constitutional version that Congress needs to pass that will grant them far better rights than DACA ever could.
So, just like the President promised, he is acting with ‘heart’ towards the DREAMers. Early yesterday he even released a statement saying:
“As I’ve said before, we will resolve the DACA issue with heart and compassion – but through the lawful democratic process.”
Trump has made it very clear that he wants to see them succeed, but as Americans and NOT second-class citizens. Now it is up to Congress to make that happen.
