Reactions To Trump's DACA Decision

President Obama:
Ultimately, this is about basic decency. This is about whether we are a people who kick hopeful young strivers out of America, or whether we treat them the way we’d want our own kids to be treated. It’s about who we are as a people – and who we want to be.

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.
Vice-President Biden:
These people are all Americans. So let's be clear: throwing them out is cruel. It is inhumane. And it is not America. Congress and the American people now have an obligation to step up and show our neighbors that they're welcome here, in the only place they've ever called home.
The US Conference Of Catholic Bishops:
The cancellation of the DACA program is reprehensible. It causes unnecessary fear for DACA youth and their families. These youth entered the U.S. as minors and often know America as their only home. The Catholic Church has long watched with pride and admiration as DACA youth live out their daily lives with hope and a determination to flourish and contribute to society: continuing to work and provide for their families, continuing to serve in the military, and continuing to receive an education. Now, after months of anxiety and fear about their futures, these brave young people face deportation. This decision is unacceptable and does not reflect who we are as Americans.
Indecent, cruel, inhumane, and reprehensible - Donald J. Trump.

Progressives are calling this the repeal of DACA.

Repeal: A repeal is the removal or reversal of a law.

DACA was not a law.

Another strawman argument from the trollbot. It is to be expected, I suppose.

Hey look over here Dayvoe.
Same Political hack Democratic Attorney Generals that are suing Exxon over catastrophic anthropogenic climate change are suing Trump saying he can not revoke a executive order that Obama put in place.

"Essentially the people advancing these arguments appear to be arguing that once a benefit of any kind is extended via a Presidential Executive Order or agency regulation, it can never be repealed. "
