President Trump’s decision to send out U.S. Attorney General Jeff Session to declare that the Obama-era DACA program was officially rescinded, has caused Democratic leaders around the country to become unhinged, and begin to state falsehoods and outright lies about the president’s true intentions for those 700,000 + individuals affected by the program.
“I am here today to announce that the program known as DACA that was effectuated under the Obama administration is being rescinded…The Department of Justice cannot defend this overreach,” Sessions said. “There is nothing compassionate about the failure to enforce immigration laws. Enforcing the law saves lives, protects communities and taxpayers, and prevents human suffering. Failure to enforce the laws in the past has put our nation at risk of crime, violence and even terrorism. The compassionate thing is to end the lawlessness, (and) enforce our laws.”-AG Jeff Sessions
Trump tweeted that he would revisit the DACA issue, if the Republican-led congress failed to file legislation that would legalize DACA.
At no point has Trump said he was going to definitively start deporting DACA children, even if the congress failed to pass immigration legislation. The president, whose compassion for the plight of these children has been well-documented, has said that he was going to deal with “these kids” with “heart” because he “loved these kids.”
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!

But with US politics being how it is, Democrats are quick to denounce the president’s actions, saying that he is going to “kick out” or start deporting DACA kids.
Florida Rep. Ted Deutch (D) is one of those DACA alarmists.

Listen to how other “DACA Divas”of the Democratic Party reacted towards President Trump’s dumping of DACA.
