Sarah Huckabee Sanders On DACA Reversal: It’s Not Cold-Hearted For Trump To Uphold The Law [VIDEO]

“It’s not coldhearted for the President to uphold the law. We are a nation of law and order and the day that we start to ignore the fact that we are that, then we throw away everything that gives these people a reason to want to come to our country. If we stop becoming the country that we were envisioned to be, then we throw away what makes us special, which makes America unique. This President’s not willing to do that.

“The previous administration was, this one isn’t. But we want to have real solutions. We want to have laws that address these problems, but it’s Congress’s job to legislate, not the president’s. And we actually want to uphold the Constitution, and I think people across this country should be celebrating the fact that they have a President that is standing up and upholding the Constitution as he was elected to do.” – Sarah Huckabee Sanders, speaking at today’s briefing.

    “It’s not coldhearted for the President to uphold the law. We are a nation of law and order…”

    The Nation of Law and Order:
    “It is difficult at this day to realize the state of public opinion in
    regard to that unfortunate race which prevailed in the civilized and
    enlightened portions of the world at the time of the Declaration of
    Independence, and when the Constitution of the United States was framed
    and adopted; but the public history of every European nation displays it
    in a manner too plain to be mistaken. They had for more than a century
    before been regarded as beings of an inferior order, and altogether
    unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political
    relations, and so far unfit that they had no rights which the white man
    was bound to respect.”

The rat only has only one way to escape the heat. He claws and rips his way into Mr. Chang who will feel some discomfort – more than as the good doctors say, “this will pinch a bit”… surely better than a jagged tuna can lid.

        Apparently their position is presidents have full control over who is and is not allowed to stay in the country, unless that president is Obama, then it’s totally unconstitutional for his immigration policy to differ from the republican’s.

  • Lakeview Bob

    Gee he upholds the constitution while colluding with the Russians. Yes, such an honorable man.

  • Fuck these monsters.

    These people–PEOPLE–were brought to the US as children. Some are Latino or Hispanic, some are actually black or Asian also. To qualify for DACA, they had to have spotless backgrounds and be in school, have a job, or be in the U.S. military.

    Can you folks just fucking imagine what it’d be like to be serving in the Army, Marines, Navy or Air Force and learn in the last few weeks you’re about to be deployed to a foreign land to fight for a nation that is as likely as not to discharge and deport you to a country you don’t even remember living in?

    This shit is not only heartless, it’s sadistic and cruel–which epitomizes everything about Donald Jizzgargler Trump. He is completely lacking in human empathy and compassion. He destroys, and his only strategy is “praise and reward me for not destroying this thing you value.”

    “Justice” without heart is nothing but authoritarian fascism. Especially when they’re lying about “upholding the law.” Trump had nothing but excuses for the violent white supremacists in Charlottesville. Regularly declared judges doing their jobs to be biased and “so-called.” Pardoned Arpaio despite his being convicted of criminal contempt for continuing the ongoing crime of depriving people of their civil rights.

    This isn’t upholding the Constitution. It’s selectively and often erroneously applying it when convenient and throwing it away when it’s not. Plus we must never forget that this malignant President asked a foreign nation to attack us so he could win.

    • P.S. If you’re not a Dreamer, but feel dismay, shock, and nausea at what’s about to happen to some 800k people who came forward, voluntarily, to apply for DACA status—people you may not even know—guess what? You have something Trump utterly lacks: Human empathy.

      • Jeff Chang

        DACA status meant DEFERRED action, not legal citizenship or a green card.

        The deferment is over.

        • clay

          DACA included green card / work permit.

          • Jeff Chang

            DACA included a work permit, not a green card. As such, the ability of DACA recipients was at the pleasure of the DHS and ICE.

            That pleasure has been exhausted.

          • clay

            “Green card” is a vague term since it originally referred to a work permit, not a permanent resident visa.

        • MonochromeMouse

          DACA’s purpose was to give people who were forcibly brought into the country illegally as CHILDREN a path to legal citizenship. Deporting people, who again were brought over here by their parents as CHILDREN, from what is likely the only country and culture they have ever known and forcing them into a country which to many of them is completely foreign is cruel and inhuman to do to someone. And to support it as “law and order” is pure evil, this is Nazi level evil here.

      • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

        You’ve hit all the marks. Thank you for writing this.

        With reference to your last comment, regarding Trump’s lack of empathy — he’s echoing the same lack of caring his base demonstrates. I am beyond horrified by the number of Americans ready to throw their neighbors to the wolves. In the case of the DACA kids, these assholes don’t care that they’ve spent their lives here and are working to earn citizenship. They broke the law. All 800,000 of them. Send them all back.

        There’s no empathy for minority victims of police violence. There’s none for the poor, the sick, refugees, the underemployed. They’re thugs, moochers, lazy, and terrorists.

        Yesterday, on Labor Day, I read several idiotic statements from people here in Michigan who believe that unions do more harm than good, ignorant of the fact that unions kept workers safe and secured better working conditions. These folks feel that if you think your job’s unsafe or doesn’t pay what you think you’re worth, just get another one. At-will employment and right-to-work legislation are fine; if you get fired, it’s your fault for screwing up.

        A similar thing happened with a story about out gay college football players. When the point was made that LGBTQ teens need positive role models to give them hope — and ultimately help bring down that group’s suicide rate, there was a surprising number of comments insisting that nobody cared about any of that, just shut up amd play football.

        I try to keep telling myself that there are folks desperate for any outlet that allows them to vent their venomous hatred that they never miss the chance to push their anger and ignorance to the center. But that’s only half true. There appear to be large numbers of adults who’ve figured out that there’s no longer any need to feel ashamed of a lack of compassion, no reason to feel that you have to keep your callousness to yourself — let it out.

        This is what scares me most. The veneer of civility and civic pride has cracked and warped. There’s no remorse, just self-centeredness and devaluing everyone else. I’m afraid we may have passed the point of no return.

    • Jeff Chang

      Person in the military have another avenue to citizenship, not covered by DACA.

      Btw…DACA was DEFERRED action not legal citizenship. The deferment is over.

      • Todd20036

        You said that. And the dreamers are still children, and Trump is STILL not giving them a path to citizenship.

    • clay

      re. serving in the military– Same guy was wanting to switch to privateers in Afghanistan.

  • ultragreen

    Well, human slavery was the law of the land too, and it was illegal to help slaves escape from their bondage. The Slave Fugitive Act required people in the North, even if they were against slavery, to return escaped slaves to their masters in the South. Many people correctly resisted the injustice of slavery and even helped slaves to escape from their masters. They did this because the law of the land was both cold-hearted and morally wrong.

    Forcibly sending people to foreign countries who have spent most of their lives in the US since their childhood is both cold-hearted and morally wrong as well. Therefore, the repeal of DACA is wrong. Shame on both Donald Trump and Sarah Huckabee Sanders for attempting to rationalize this cruelty!

  • Halou

    That’s funny, because when addressing the detention of “illegal immigrants” (read: any immigrant regardless because racists don’t care for the difference) and other categories of criminals, Donald Trump was imploring the nation’s law enforcement officers to ignore what the law actually says and be physically aggressive.

    North Korea is a “nation of laws” as well. The laws are ludicrous in the extreme and are designed to entrench the ruling dynasty’s position. More than twenty million people are at a disadvantage out there but hey, laws are laws, right?

    A child is born into this world and immediately condemned to live out their entire life in a concentration camp with no chance or hope of getting out because of something their grandfather allegedly did half a century ago. Absolutely fine because that is what the law says and North Korea is a “nation of laws”.

    And do remember, folks, that one major reason — *the* major reason — Obama resorted to executive orders was that the Republican Congress was quite openly refusing to work with him and refusing to do its job.
