President Trump just tweeted that his administration will be following the Supreme Court ruling and resubmitting his request to end DACA:
“The Supreme Court asked us to resubmit on DACA, nothing was lost or won. They “punted”, much like in a football game (where hopefully they would stand for our great American Flag). We will be submitting enhanced papers shortly in order to properly fulfil the Supreme Court’s ruling & request of yesterday. I have wanted to take care of DACA recipients better than the Do Nothing Democrats, but for two years they refused to negotiate – They have abandoned DACA. Based on the decision the Dems can’t make DACA citizens. They gained nothing!”
When Trump says that for two years Democrats have refused to negotiate, he’s not wrong. In fact Trump was willing to expand whatever fix to DACA to include those that were eligible but not recipients. But Democrats refused to work with him on the issue.
So now he’s going to resubmit these ‘enhanced papers’ and we’ll see what becomes of it. Hopefully John Roberts won’t go back on his ruling and find another reason to say Trump can’t undo Obama’s unconstitutional executive order.
