The White House has found ways to end protection for 'Dreamers' while shielding Trump from blowback

While President Trump wavered Thursday on whether he will stop shielding from deportation people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, his aides have identified at least two ways to quietly end their protections without his fingerprints.

But senior Trump aides are holding fast to their goal of strengthening immigration enforcement, the presidentís chief campaign promise. They have examined at least two options that would not directly involve Trump, according to two immigration policy advisors to the White House: a lawsuit brought by states, and new legal guidance that details who is a priority for deportation.

Under that option, Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions, a vocal critic of deportation relief as a senator, would direct Department of Justice lawyers to review the program, which issues two-year work permits to people who qualify and keeps them from being categorized as deportation priorities.

If the Justice Department determines that DACA is not legal or is no longer a responsible use of prosecutorial discretion, the Department of Homeland Security would be instructed to stop awarding and renewing work permits.

Another possible path involves the courts. A handful of governors are considering a challenge patterned on the 2014 lawsuit filed by several conservative state officials against the Obama administrationís expansion of deportation protections. If they sue, Sessions could instruct his lawyers not to defend the program in court, exposing it to indefinite suspension by a federal judge.

2. Same here.

Do they think all Democrats live in the same community and don't know how to write letters to their local papers editors? We're everyplace and we tend to be extremely verbal!

I will keep harassing her too, via email and mail and calling... She did start voting no on his nominees so I'm sure she gets my messages

6. hatred eclipses logic

Let's see...
Take a group of young, income earning, income tax paying individuals --
many of whom are earning/have earned college degrees...
all of which are actively participating in the economy ...
and are contributing members of the workforce whose employers have invested time & money into their training...
and evict them from their homes, fire them from their jobs, and send them to a country that many of them have no memory of ... nor any ties to...
just because you can?

Yeah.. that's excellent "business" sense..
Not to mention that
Even Genghis Khan treated his subjects with more compassion...
