Adam Schiff Comes Up With Perfect Plan To Stop Trump’s DACA Plan In Its Track
Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) spoke out against Donald Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Schiff offered an amendment that would defund any effort to deport Dreamers.
The Congressman tweeted out on Monday:
“Mr. President, you told the DREAMERs that you loved kids, that you had a big heart, and that they should have hope. Have you no compassion?”
“Congress can’t stand idly by and watch families torn apart. We can vote, this week. I have amendment to defund any effort to deport DREAMers,” he added.

Schiff’s amendment will make sure that Trump doesn’t start deporting Dreamers once DACA is ended.
Trump is putting a six-month delay before ending DACA in order for Congress to come up with a law that will help Dreamers obtain legal status. The problem with that is that GOP lawmakers have had with immigration reform in the past.
