If Trump Ends DACA, Obama Is Ready to Show Out

Former President, and my president for life, Barack Obama promised that he wouldn’t armchair-quarterback current President Donald von DoucheFace’s presidency. Mostly because he knew that Trump was a disaster waiting to happen and he didn’t want to have to continually answer to von DoucheFace’s slipups.

But when it comes to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, which allows some undocumented immigrants who entered the country as minors to receive a work permit and the opportunity to hold off deportation—an immigration policy enacted under Obama that the evil von DoucheFace wants to destroy—the former president will not sit by quietly.

In his last press conference, Obama said that he would speak up if “I think our core values may be at stake.” Obama was clear that DACA was part of those “core values,” Slate reports.

He said that he would not remain silent in the face of “efforts to round up kids who have grown up here, and for all practical purposes are American kids, and send them someplace else, when they love this country,” Politico reports.

If Trump stops DACA, Obama already has a Facebook post that is linked to his Twitter and can reach his 94 million followers, blasting the president’s decision to end the program, according to Politico.

Von DoucheFace campaigned claiming that “Dreamers,” as the undocumented children of immigrants have been called, could sleep safely. But once Trump took office, as with most things with this president, political pressures from his white supremacist cronies reportedly began pushing the president to end the program. Current reports are suggesting that the president plans to punt to Congress and the lawmakers will ultimately decide whether DACA should end.

“I have always believed DACA was a presidential overreach. However, I equally understand the plight of the DREAM Act kids who—for all practical purposes—know no country other than America,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said in a statement Monday, Slate reports.

“If President Trump makes this decision we will work to find a legislative solution to their dilemma,” Graham said.

Currently Congress has not worked to come to a “legislative solution” on anything remotely involving this dumbass president and his dumbass presidency. While the threat of war with North Korea is looming, if the president, or Congress, ends the Obama-era immigration program, expect all hell to break loose. Let’s hope that for once in this dismal-ass presidency, everyone does the right thing.

What’s going to happen is they’re going to attach DACA to some ridiculous republican wet dream and dare democrats not to pass it. Something like paying for a border wall, make taking down a confederate monument a federal hate crime, or labeling Planned Parenthood as a terrorist organization.

‘We had a bill, but democrats refused to pass it’
