United States President Donald Trump and the first lady appearing with the Easter bunny at the annual Easter Egg roll but as the president mingled with the children on the White House lawn, he blasted the Democrats for immigration and for letting the dreams down.
The US president and Easter bunny, embracing his role as the host of the annual Easter Egg roll and he enjoyed the lighter moment on the south lawn, but even here, he had immigration on his mind. Surrounded by the kids, he talked of the DACA, the program to protect undocumented immigrants who were brought to the US as young children.
Trumps said, “The Democrats really let them down, they have really let them down. They had this great opportunity. And now people are taking advantage of DACA and that’s a shame.”
Over the past two days, the US president has blasted Democrats and Mexico for the demise of a program that he had both ended and promised to expand. President tirade began Sunday morning, not long after the program “Fox and Friends” aired this segment about a caravan of Honduran immigrants on their way through Mexico towards the US border where they plan to seek asylum.
US President, Trump tweeted, “Caravans coming. No more DACA deal. These big flows of people are all trying to take advantage of DACA.” But, the only people eligible for the legal status under DACA are those who came to the US as children before June 2017.
Democrats say it is a president who is to blame, after rejecting a deal to protect the dreamers in exchange for billions of dollars to build the president’s border wall.
Ohio Republican Governor, John Kasich tweeted, “A true leader preserves and offers hope, does not take hope from innocent children who call American home.”
