President Donald Trump is about to make a decision that will mark his presidency forever. There are some 800,000 technically illegal aliens who came to the States as small children brought by their parents. They have gone to school here, fell in love here, and very often, they have married an American and have children who are American. If Trump makes a decision that these people must be deported, he is seriously out of touch with human rights.
Trump has dragged his feet on this issue known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA. If he moves to deport these people, his presidency will go down in history as really deplorable. I met a man who was deported thanks to the corruption of New York Federal Judges. He came to the States when he was 4 years old. He grew up here, married, and had four children. He owned a photo development shop in the basement of the World Trade Center. An agent persuaded him to take out a loan to buy development equipment rather than send out his customer’s film to be developed. That agent filled out the paperwork as typical and checked a box that he was an American citizen because he had no accent and he just assumed. When 911 hit and he was wiped out, the bank reviewed all loans outstanding and then discovered that he was not an American citizen. He was charged with Bank Fraud. Went to trial because he did not fill out that form and the judge held him guilty anyway. They sentenced him to 7 years in prison and then because he was a felon, he was to be deported. His wife lost the house and her and the four children were living in the basement of a friend on charity.
If Trump further destroys families of such people who did not come here on their own decision, this will be a major disgrace for his presidency.
