Rep. Harris: “I Support the Cancellation of Plans to Exempt Illegal Immigrants from Lawful Deportation”

From Congressman Andy Harris:

On June 15, President Trump rolled back the program knowns as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA). The Obama-era program is an extension of another program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which allowed children brought into the United States illegally to remain in the country. DAPA would have exempted parents of children covered by DACA from deportation. Congressman Andy Harris (MD-01) issued the following statement in support of President Trump’s decision:

“I support the cancellation of plans to exempt illegal immigrants from lawful deportation. The plan would have unilaterally expanded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program without authorization by Congress. While courts had previously ruled against the Obama-era policy and blocked its implementation, this decision by the Trump administration will encourage the legal entry of vetted people into the United States – which helps protect our security and enforce the rule of law.”

    No surprises here. Andy Harris is Donald Trump’s puppet – or would be, if Donald Trump knew who he is, lol.

      Do you think Andy Harris will ever realize the only thing Donald Trump cares about is Donald Trump. I loved that POTUS twisted the arms of all those representatives to sign onto the AHCA, had a big garden party to celebrate, then turns around and declares that the AHCA was “mean”. Why would you show loyalty to a man who is so willing to throw people under the bus.

      An answer to a Trumpite’s whining about how much they have suffered under President Obama: “…I want to look back over the last 8 years and ask you a few questions. Since much of the rhetoric before Obama was elected was that he would impose Sharia Law, Take Away Your Guns, Create Death Panels, Destroy the Economy, Impose Socialism and, since you will agree that NONE of this came to pass, I was wondering: Why have you suffered so? So let me ask:

      He may occupy the oval office but he is far from being anything resembling a President.

      You Repubs need to realize, this is not about Hillary. It’s not about Obama. It’s about what this idiot, #45 is doing to destroy this country and the world. We have absolutely gotten over the election. We will not sit back and allow #45 to continue his treasonous, racist, sexist, stupid agenda. If you are not among the super-wealthy in this country, I suggest you get on board.

      Problem with that is that Donny has no idea that Andy exists. Hasn’t noticed him, as hard as Andy is trying to be noticed. It’s sad, really. Andy is like the little kid on the playground, trying to get noticed by the bigger, cooler kids (yes, Andy thinks Donny is cooler). Poor Andy. I heard Donny is having a hard time filling key cabinet positions, so maybe he still has a chance.

    Stock Market at all time high, strangling regulations lifted, business climate better than ever, Companies hiring and staying in the US. Of course you Dems wouldn’t know this since Fake News only talks about Russians and collusion. The heartbeat of America put #45 in office and he’s keeping his promises. The working class had enough of 8 years handouts and freebies. Every day is a new adventure. No more establishment and the “good ole boys”. How’s that Clinton Foundation working now?
