WATCH: Dem Sen. Dianne Feinstein Admits DACA is on “Shaky Legal Ground”
During an appearance on MSNBC with Chuck Todd Tuesday, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) was asked if DACA was legal. After a little bit of prodding, Senator Feinstein admitted DACA is on “shaky legal ground.”
Breitbart News reports:
Feinstein answered, “DACA was executive order. Legal is the law of passage of something. I — you know, there are ten attorneys general that are prepared to sue. I don’t want to get into that. The point is, DACA is here. And we’ve got 800,000 young people –.”
Todd then cut in to say, “Your answer indicates, though, that it’s on shaky legal ground.”
Feinstein stated, “It is. That’s why we need to pass a law, and we should do it.”
On Tuesday President Trump announced an end the Obama-era program that grants work permits to illegal immigrants who arrived in this country illegally with their lawbreaking parents or guardians.
After Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ announcement Barack Obama posted a statement on Facebook.
Obama calls DREAMERS “some of our best and brightest young people… who want to contribute to the country we love.”
Obama then plays his race card, something we are all very familiar with after his eight years in the White House.
What makes us American is not a question of what we look like, or where our names come from, or the way we pray. What makes us American is our fidelity to a set of ideals – that all of us are created equal; that all of us deserve the chance to make of our lives what we will; that all of us share an obligation to stand up, speak out, and secure our most cherished values for the next generation.
