GOP Sen. Susan Collins: Deporting 'DREAMer' contradicts Trump's own policy

Story highlights

"I'm troubled by it," Collins said.
"It does seem to contradict the President's own policy," Collins added.







(CNN)



................Collins made the comments after being asked on the "George Hale Ric Tyler Show" on WVOM Maine radio about the February deportation of Juan Manuel Montes Bojorquez, who was protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, according to his lawyers. The Department of Homeland Security claims that Montes' status expired in 2015.

"I'm troubled by it," Collins said. "It seems to me that if a child is brought here by his parents that that child really didn't have any say in the decision to come here. I don't support illegal immigration. But that isn't the child's fault. And as I understand the details of yesterday's deportation, this individual who's in his 20s now, was brought here when he was 9 years old. And it is his parents who were at fault, not him."

She went on to say, "But it does seem to contradict the President's own policy because he too has expressed sympathy for children who were brought here and have grown up here and in some cases know no other language, know no other country, they really will be lost when they're deported. And that does trouble me. And it troubles the president. The President made pretty clear that he was sympathetic to that group of individuals."

1. Oh, gimme a break, Susan

Over half the shit Trump pulls seems to contradict himself at one point or another. You still vote with him most of the time.

10. Being a Republican, I'm afraid it can be easily removed

Doesn't even require surgery.

2. She is full of it

She plans to do nothing. This is just a PR stunt. She will vote for anything that Trump wants.

5. Oh, don't act all sanctimonious now....

trying to regain some semblance of questioning the orange asshole's flip flopping when she's rubber stamped most of his crapola.

Time to replace you, too, Collins. You used to be considered moderate, but you've ruined that reputation.

7. "Eff" this Moderate Shit Stain

She can shove her moderate bullshit right where the sun don't shine.

Always playing the "oh I'm so reasonable" tag, but then voting right in lockstep with frickin Ted Cruz and the rest of the Neanderthals.

Sorry Collins. You too "own" this pussy grabbing piece of shit your fucking party saddled the entire fucking planet with.

Go to hell
