We all knew liberals would be angry at President Trump for ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that was illegally created by Barack Obama. But Vermont senator and former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is taking his outrage to the extreme.
Sen. Sanders forgets that DACA, as written, was illegal from the start. But we know that the Vermont socialist is using his selective memory, and we remember that Obama sidestepped Congress to enact it.
Ol’ Bernie knows DACA is illegal. He doesn’t care, however. He’d rather score political points. Check out what he said:
If Trump decides to end DACA, it will be one of the ugliest and cruelest decisions ever made by a president in our modern history. https://t.co/EXfRAy5azO

Did you read that? Sanders calls it “one of the ugliest and cruelest decisions ever made by a president in our modern history.”
That’s an egregious statement, considering that President Trump is calling on Congress to reinstate DACA through legislation.
Congress, get ready to do your job – DACA!

Trump’s decision is so inhumane that he is calling on Congress to implement DACA correctly, not through executive action.
It’s funny because Democrats had years while in power to correctly deal with this issue. And they didn’t. Now it’s up to Trump.
Although I do not agree with President Trump’s six-month extension, he feels he’s doing the right thing by sending it to Congress for a legislative decision. Obama wouldn’t have even done that. My feelings are that this is amnesty for 800,000 DACA adults. I believe they need to go back to their own country and come back here through legal means. We already take in more legal immigrants than any other country. Most of our citizens don’t appreciate illegals jumping the line.
That said, Trump is still trying to make it better. Bernie, it’s you, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama who messed this country up. So, please, sit and watch the grown-ups try to fix this thing.
