President Trump on Tuesday urged Congress to get to work on legislation to replace the Obama-era program known as DACA, as his administration is expected to wind down the policy that protects young illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is scheduled Tuesday morning to announce the fate of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Sources say the administration plans to end the program, with a six-month delay. The delay would allow Congress time to craft a legislative solution, instead of the executive action former President Barack Obama used in 2012 to enact the program. "Congress, get ready to do your job - DACA!" Trump tweeted Tuesday morning.
Kansas Secretary of State and candidate for Governor of Kansas Kris Kobach joined the Todd Starnes Show today to discuss President Trump's plan to end the DACA program, which he believes should be terminated "immediately". "Finally, at last...we have the rule of law restored again," Kobach said, and corrected what Sen. Jeff Flake on the notion that illegal aliens under DACA are not kids but have a median age of 25. "No other government puts foreign citizens ahead of their own citizens, let's do the same."
Kobach went on to call out Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), saying. "We have some Republican lawmakers, like Marco Rubio, who are fans of amnesty... not only does it hurt the American worker... it hurts the American taxpayer. Where is putting Americans first, when it comes to Senator Rubio?"
