While addressing a crowd at the Latino Coalition Legislative Summit this week, President Trump stated that they’re “really making America great again.” Further praising the “millions of hardworking Latinos all across our nation.”
“You’re really making America great again,” he said. “A lot of the people in this room are making America great again.”
“You’re unleashing the American spirit, you’re bringing jobs to American communities, and you are fighting for the American way,” he said.
“This is our time. This is our moment! Go get DACA. Go push those Democrats. I’m telling you.”
“This is a moment for DACA and for all of us, but this is a very special moment. A lot of tremendous things can happen here. Right now, so many tremendous things can happen, if people want them to happen.”
As reported by Fox News:
President Trump and lawmakers are still struggling to come up with a plan for the hundreds of thousands of young, undocumented immigrants living in the United States.
In September, the Trump administration announced its plan to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) – which provides a level of amnesty to certain undocumented immigrants, many of whom came to the U.S. as children – with a six-month delay for recipients.
Trump set a deadline of March 5 as the end date for the DACA program, but a lower court ordered the administration to continue to accept renewal applications indefinitely. The U.S. Supreme Court declined in late February to take up the administration’s request for an appeal of the order that requires the continuing acceptance of renewal applications.
The Department of Homeland Security has confirmed that it is continuing to process renewal requests but is not accepting new ones.
