Donald Trump “could protect them” – Donald Trump Sucks

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said President Donald Trump “could protect” DACA recipients, adding that she’s hopeful that White House chief of staff Gen. John Kelly might be the impetus for such a decision.

“The president — they don’t have to go down this path,” the San Francisco Democrat said, speaking with reporters and The Denver Post’s editorial board on Wednesday. “He could protect them, regardless of what happens in the court. That’s what we are hoping.”

Trump hasn’t made clear what he plans to do with the Obama-era initiative, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, created in 2012 and which grants new rights to immigrants brought illegally to the U.S. as children. But the broad expectation is that his administration will make a decision before 10 state attorneys general move forward with a lawsuit challenging DACA.

The attorneys general have vowed to do so by Sept. 5 unless Trump cancels the program. Colorado has an estimated 17,000 DACA recipients, many of whom are feeling increasingly anxious about their future.
