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.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"
