Gaslighting from the occupant of the White House.
One of this morning’s many delusional tweets from Donald Trump (r):
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
Democrats are doing nothing for DACA – just interested in politics. DACA activists and Hispanics will go hard against Dems, will start “falling in love” with Republicans and their President! We are about RESULTS.

He thinks we’re all stoopit.
DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) was the Obama era directive giving close to 800,000 individuals who entered the country as undocumented minors deferred action on deportation.
A reply from the ACLU.
Reminder: You ended DACA.

On September 5, 2017:
Statement from President Donald J. Trump
Issued on: September 5, 2017
…the Department of Homeland Security will begin an orderly transition and wind-down of DACA, one that provides minimum disruption. While new applications for work permits will not be accepted, all existing work permits will be honored until their date of expiration up to two full years from today. Furthermore, applications already in the pipeline will be processed, as will renewal applications for those facing near-term expiration. This is a gradual process, not a sudden phase out. Permits will not begin to expire for another six months, and will remain active for up to 24 months…
So, republicans control the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate. There’s a republican administration in the White House.
“…Democrats are doing nothing for DACA…”
