Is there an issue on which Sen. John McCain wouldn’t act like a liberal Democrat?
It doesn’t seem like it, as once again he criticized the Trump administration on their DACA move.
He said President Donald Trump took the “wrong approach to immigration policy.”
President Donald Trump said last week that he was ending former President Barack Obama’s unconstitutional executive DACA order and giving the Congress a six-month window to come up with a replacement.
From The Hill:
During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” McCain was asked if he thinks Congress should codify DACA and if he thinks there should be a path to citizenship for the DACA recipients.
“I think yes and yes,” McCain said. “But I think it ought to be done in a comprehensive fashion.”
He says it unconscionable to deport them.
From Washington Times:
“It is not conscionable to tell young people who came here as children that they have to go back to a country that they don’t know,” Mr. McCain said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “And, by the way, there’s 900 of these Dreamers that are serving in uniform in the United States military. Now, are we going to go to the young men or women serving in Afghanistan or Iraq today and say, ‘By the way, you’re a Dreamer, get back to fill in the blank’? We’re not going to do that to these young men and women who are serving in uniform.”
900 serving in the military, but almost 800,000 who are not serving in the military.
McCain said that a DACA replacement should be done as part of a more inclusive immigration reform package.
“I think it ought to be done in a comprehensive fashion,” Mr. McCain said. “A few years ago we passed through the Senate with a vote of 68 votes comprehensive immigration reform — that STEM, science, technology and engineering people, guest workers, a number of other provisions that makes it comprehensive, border security, etc. We need to do that and make that part of the Dreamers part.”
There is already a path to citizenship.
Go out and come back in legally, as everyone you jumped past by entering illegally had to do.
What is the answer in his solution to rewarding illegality?
