Glenn on DACA Deal: ‘Trump Was Left Cleaning up Obama’s Illegal Mess’

One of today’s biggest hot-button issues is immigration, more specifically, what to do about DACA. Lawmakers in both parties have been at a stalemate, unable to agree on how best to deal with “Dreamers.”

Catch me up on DACA

DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Through DACA, immigrants who were brought to this country before they turned 16, and have lived here continuously since at least June 15, 2007, could apply for a permit which protects them from deportation.

President Obama passed DACA in 2012 through “presidential decree,” and it only applied to a specific group of people who had lived in this country illegally for at least 5 years at that time. No one who entered the country illegally after 2012 is eligible to apply. An estimated 800,000 “Dreamers” applied and are currently protected under the program.

“It wasn’t a heartless pulling of the plug like it’s being portrayed in the media”

Then along came Trump

By the time President Trump inherited this whole hot mess, several states were threatening to sue over DACA because Obama’s original presidential decree, which bypassed Congressional approval, and was both unconstitutional and illegal. In September 2017, President Trump called for the end of DACA in six-months if Congress could not reach an agreement on how to make the program work.

“It wasn’t a heartless pulling of the plug like it’s being portrayed in the media,” explained Glenn on the show today. “The Trump administration stopped receiving DACA applicants last September. If your DACA permit was set to expire before MArch 5, 2018, you were given one month to apply for a renewal which would extend your permit for two more years. More than 20,000 DACA permit holders who were eligible for the renewal did not get their permits extended. ”

President Trump continues to made his goals clear with the Obama Administration’s DACA program.

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.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
