DACA vs. The Hill: Not Even Congress Trusts Congress Anymore

President Donald Trump announced this week that he is ending Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a program shielding illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. while under the age of 16, and leaving the legislative work up to Congress.

DACA was instated by an executive order from President Barack Obama; a temporary fix that must be renewed every two years, the program protects around 800,000 people from deportation. Trump seemed to imply in a tweet that he expects Congress to craft legislation giving individuals using DACA to stay in the U.S. a path to living here legally.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced this week that DACA would be ending. In a tweet on Tuesday, Trump said, “Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do). If they can’t, I will revisit this issue!”

On radio Wednesday, Glenn criticized members of Congress who are too eager to let the president do their job. Immigration policy should happen through legislation, not executive order.

“Even Congress doesn’t trust Congress anymore,” Glenn said. “Now Trump has returned the power back to Congress, and now they’re complaining about it. … When decisions are tough, they fall all over themselves to give their own power away.”

GLENN: Even Congress doesn't trust Congress anymore. Yesterday, the Trump administration announced that it would end DACA, that is the Obama-era presidential edict that allowed hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants to avoid deportation. The plan is to give Congress six months to fix the problem. And the reaction from Congress? How dare you. How dare you let us handle this.

Hang on. Even Congress doesn't trust Congress anymore.

President Obama said this...

OBAMA: You know, I'm the president of the United States. I'm not the emperor of the United States.

GLENN: Uh-huh. Yeah. We knew that. We all knew that. I don't think he knew that at the time.

Now, Trump has returned the power back to Congress, and they're complaining about it.

Our Founders knew that the balance of power would work because each branch would want to protect their own power because they would all be power-hungry freaks. But now, when decisions are tough, they fall all over themselves to give their own power away.

Donald Trump said yesterday, "I knew some may wish that I could just bypass Congress and change the law myself. But that's not how our democracy works." Oh, wait. No. Hold on just a second. That wasn't Donald Trump yesterday. That was Barack Obama.

He was right. He just never lived those words. And now, what do we have?

Even Congress doesn't trust Congress anymore, and neither should you.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.
