But he’ll kick them out with great heart

Donald Trump is preparing to shift the New Cruelty into high gear today, and is expected to formally announce the end of DACA, the Obama policy that allowed undocumented immigrants who were brought into the country as children to come out into the open and get jobs. The New York Times delicately describes the expected announcement, reportedly crafted by chief of staff John Kelly, as “an inelegant solution to an intractable problem”: Instead of a definitive decision, Trump will hold off on a final decision for six months and see if Congress can pass some kind of legislation to either end, extend, or make permanent the status of some 800,000 people who trusted the government not to deport them. Given Congress’s terrific record of getting things done this year, DACA recipients should probably consider that a notice to spend six months learning Spanish (or Chinese, or Korean, or Serbian…) for the first time in their lives.

Trump has already playfully hinted at their fate:

Translation: I am not now, nor will I ever be, ready to take responsibility for anything. Why did you idiots even elect me?

And following in the great Trump tradition, he isn’t even expected to deliver the bad news himself, at least according to the Times:

Mr. Trump will not make the announcement himself. Instead, Attorney General Jeff Sessions will handle it at an 11 a.m. briefing. He will not take questions from reporters.

Frankly, we’re surprised Trump isn’t planning to send his security goon / head of Oval Office operations Keith Schiller to personally fire all the DACA recipients, but Schiller’s probably too busy packing up his own things after firing himself.

The six-month punt by the eight-month cunt has given raving immigration jerks a sad, because just as some DREAMers foolishly believed Trump when he said they had nothing to worry about, the “deport ’em all” crowd expected Trump to deport everyone his first day in office. Mark Krikorian, the head of the Center for Immigration Studies, doesn’t see why Trump would put off the important work of Making America White Again:

“It’s not clear what delaying this for six months means […]

“He’s being pulled in a bunch of different directions, and because he doesn’t have any strong ideological anchor, or deep knowledge of the issue, he ends up sort of not knowing what to do,” Mr. Krikorian said. “I think the fact that they did nothing to it suggests that they had no idea what to do,” he added.

Donald Trump is disappointing a hate group, and isn’t that sad?

Trump had to make his announcement immediately, you see, because of a completely arbitrary deadline set by a group of nine state attorneys general who planned to sue over DACA if Trump didn’t act by today. Because, gosh, if they sued, then Trump’s Justice Department would have to defend an Obama policy in court, and that’s simply unthinkable.

So, will Congress fix this, and extend DACA, or even pass an improved version that would allow the DREAMers to become citizens? It could happen, maybe, since lots of Republicans have been making mouth-noises about how ending DACA would be bad. Politico reports that some House Republicans are floating the possibility of “codifying DACA in return for Trump’s sought-after border wall,” which should just make everybody happy. There are even a few surprises among the Republicans who are talking about possibly passing a law to make DACA permanent, like rightwing Oklahoma Senator James Lankford, who went the whole We Must Be Tough BUT… route in a statement he released Monday:

It is right for there to be consequences for those who intentionally entered this country illegally […] However, we as Americans do not hold children legally accountable for the actions of their parents.

Lankford is among several Rs who’ve been “privately speaking” to North Carolina Republican Thom Tillis about a possible bill to allow DREAMers to

obtain legal status if they work, pursue higher education or serve in the military. Tillis has called it a “fair but rigorous path.”

Many of those same Republicans filibustered the DREAM Act in 2010, but that was when Barack Obama was president, so you can see their point.

If by some miracle the leadership in both bodies actually brought a DACA bill to the floor, it could certainly pass with votes from Democrats and some portion of non-asshole Republicans. If there’s enough public pressure put on Republican members of Congress, it could happen, just maybe, but that would take a certain amount of courage — just a very little bit — from Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell.

What we’re saying here is that there’s likely to be a real upsurge in sales of Rosetta Stone language-learning software over the next six months.

    Is 6 months enough time for those DACA kids to get Houston rebuilt ?

  • Mmm, bring them to Australia, we have plenty of room, single payer health care, and most of us understand immigration is good for a country.

    Also, fuck you trump, and all your republican scum fuck racist base nazi shitheads.

    Go get some lipo, put on your heels, and fuck off back to Russia where they will put you and your asshat family to work in a coal mine.

    Damn I’m cranky.

    Good article dok, unfortunately it’s a blood pressure accelerator.

    • Courser_Resistance

      Does Australia take American ex-pats?

      • Yeah, we like them. They are usually highly skilled, pay their taxes and work hard.

        I think we just took in 100’000 refugees from all over the place, Somali etc.

        Putting them in towns and cities all down the east coast.

        I’ve met quite a few, they are awesome usually.

    • Robbertjan Brandenburg

      Yeah and the rest can come to Western Europe. We crave college educated young people.

    • JohnBull

      Like you have to worry about high blood pressure down there, with your tons of beaches and good health care.

      • I worry for the rest of the world john.

        I understand very well how good I have it here, and I’m thankful for that, in the meantime I’ll speak out against injustice. And squash the rising nazi groups that are for some reason starting to emerge from the forests here.

        It’s very odd to say the least, we fought the nazis and the fascists with America and have fought and bled in every war before and since alongside Americans.

        Australia is Americas greatest ally so we as Australians need to watch over our brothers and sisters and lend a helping hand if we can.

        I wish our watery pale politicians would offer some guidance to trump rather than try crawling up his flabby ass.

        In any case, stay safe America.

    Some appropriate discussion from a 538 article this morning: https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/2018-could-be-the-year-of-the-angry-white-college-graduate/

    Further into the article, there’s a section about how if Dems reached out to Latino voters and got them to vote in the midterms, that could win them as many as twelve of the flipped districts they need in CA and TX alone.

    I wonder what kinds of political fuckery they could bring up to encourage Latinos to vote. Hmmmmm…

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      And the driver’s all “how the fuck am I supposed to ‘have a good time’ with these empty plastic containers?”

      • NastyBossetti

        “How am I supposed to even drive this fucking truck with a gigantic bucket on my lap?” It’s still astounding to me how clueless this guy is. He understands nothing.

        • SterWonk

          “Thank you sir! Good job!” 🙄

    • JohnBull

      No, that’s right. Doesn’t the worker sit in the back, like he should?!

    • stankbait

      Its not good exercise. Its work! Something he knows very little about.
      As far as the “have a good time” comment goes, he displays just how detached he is. People are having to bathe out of a bucket and shit in another, and he says “have a good time”? Fuck! The man is a blister that shows up after the work is done!

    • NastyBossetti

      Also, I love how everyone there clearly believed a pickup truck needs no explanation. It’s like when you’re in grade school and you get that writing exercise: “Pretend you are writing instructions for how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, for an alien from outer space who has never seen bread, a butter knife, or literally anything we have here ever before.” That’s what everyone encountering Donald Trump needs to act like – he is an alien, he knows literally nothing of the world, and he needs it all spelled out for him in painful detail.

    • SeeTrain65

      “How are we going to get all the illegals into this truck? Doesn’t GM make a truck with 14,000,000 seats?”

  • alwayspunkindrublic

    Slightly OT, but I’ve been in an email fucktussle with a guy who wrote an editorial in our local newspaper that was an apologia for Trump’s pardon of Joe Arpaio. He said that while Arpaio “may” have violated the letter of the law, he upheld “the spirit of the law”. Oh, and he blames it all on Obama.

          • Celtic_Gnome

            That would make a great movie! Batman devoting his life to destroying Superman because he fears, not being one of them, they can never know Supe’s true intentions. The fight scenes would be epic and… Oh. Wait.

        • Lance Thrustwell

          I disagree. ‘Virtue signaling’ is a very real thing; it simply refers to language or symbolic actions that are meant to display to the world some virtuous idea you have or position you hold. The fact that Nazis use this phrase is immaterial. Hypocrisy is real regardless of who recognizes it.

          • Arolpin

            It’s been co-opted by the fucking Nazis. It’s not worth fighting to keep, it’s poisoned fruit of a poisoned tree. I see someone use that term and I automatically assume that they are a paste-eating MRA type. I am sure that it has a long and storied history, kind of like the swastika, and it’s been ruined.

    Reuters, exercising extraordinary levels of… tact in reporting on the cholera epidemic in Yemen – which spread more rapidly than any other ever recorded, and has infected more than 612,000 people.

    The United Nations has said the epidemic is man-made, driven by a civil war that has left 15.7 million people without clean water or sanitation.

    No mention that Yemen’s status as the current title holder for “world’s greatest humanitarian crisis” is the result of the relentless bombing campaign by a Saudi-led coalition funded and armed by the United States.

    But the photo editor who illustrated the article may have an idea.

      Yemen had a water crisis before the civil war–they are simply running out of water. Two years ago fifty percent of the people didn’t have enough water to drink or grow crops. Cholera epidemic is a direct result of lack of water and destruction of infrastructure.

        There’s a 50/50 chance the GOP could come through with this.

Fuck this seriously with the economy, and the DC’ll give a lesson in what’s important with their checkbooks held high.

  • Joe Beese

    Charles Pierce:

    As a practical matter, it will be incredibly tough to tie this to The Wall and get it through Congress. Democrats could very well refuse to participate in any of it on the pretense that the president has created this mess himself and that The Wall is dumb. Congressional Republicans are split on DACA, and aren’t exactly unified on The Wall either. Even if Trump somehow pieced together enough votes to just pass a DACA extension, it would be a blow to his base as the 2018 campaign cycle begins grinding into gear. And if nothing gets done, Trump will feel a huge amount of pressure to start deporting (essentially American) young people in six months. Will they pull kids out of their college classrooms? Will they drag 13-year-olds out of their homes and put them on the back of a truck? Will they tell a member of the military serving abroad to change their flight home from San Francisco to San Salvador? That should make for some interesting video and some crippling headlines. It will also light a rocket-fuel fire under the Democratic base heading into 2018.

    If only the president could employ some of that apocryphal “compassion” we heard about in 2012. Or if only he had not embraced ethno-nationalism on the campaign trail. If only the sum total of his achievements—pulling out of the Paris Climate Accords, dismantling the Clean Power Plan, turning the clock back on Cuba—didn’t solely consist of destroying the legacy of his predecessor, consequences be damned.

      The New York Times reports Trump was just last week begging his aides for “a way out” of making a decision either way on the program.

      Democrats didn’t paint him in this corner. Nine Republican Attorneys General set the deadline for acting on this issue with their threat to file a lawsuit by a specific date.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Congress has already built the wall – the stupid Hastert Rule that Ryan blindly obeys and that’s guaranteed to keep any DACA legislation from ever getting out of committee. Like all draconian walls, it needs to be breached, turned to rubble, and have its pieces sold off as quaint relics of a horrific bygone era.

He sounds off about “fire and fury” and immediately gets his bluff called. He says he’ll do something worse than unprecedented fire and fury… then has his bluff called and again does fuck all.
      He’s cancelled his state visit to the UK because May can’t guarantee people won’t protest him (I have been conscientious about doing squats- I want my arse to look its best should the nation call upon me to bear it at that orange haemorrhoid- England expects, as another one eyed national hero said).

    Oh that’s good!
    I hate to say it but I agree with the six month delay. I’m not for deporting anyone but congress needs to pass a law that will allow the dreamers to stay. Allowing the President past, present or future to randomly decide what laws his DOJ enforces is a dangerous precedent. It’s violates the constitution and pretty much renders our elected representatives powerless (they don’t need anymore help). Trump’s DOJ is already doing this with his EPA and the civil rights division, if we demand he ignores the law on DACA how can we bitch?

        I voted for Hillary too, but so did everyone and their brother in Massachusetts. Your vote doesn’t matter, as long as Republicans have ensured that an 18th century system designed at the same time as the fucking 3/5 compromise becomes ossified in the constitution as sacrosanct, set-in-stone gospel to venerate the sainted Founders.

            I was supposed to be available the rest of the month, but whenever I called to see if I was needed the next three weeks, the announcement said not to come in.

            I also forgot about having to check in the final week and blew it off. Then I remembered it was Tuesday and I had to check in. Late in the day, I finally called and found the court said we didn’t need to come in and my obligation was fulfilled.

        Republicans always cave to the money people in the end, but the racist troglodyte faction they’ve been stringing along all this time got emboldened when Trump won and will make their lives hell. Good.

  • Gotta drag this out for six months, gotta think of the TV ratings!

    • BeachBum

      Priorities. If a dozen people getting kicked off an island is great, a million would be super-duper yoooooge !

      • Three Finger Salute

        Six million, when adjusted for inflation…

  • BeachBum

    I thought these people believed in the Bible ? Sins of the father and all ?
    Oh I forgot h y p o c r i t e s . Silly me.

    • harryr

      Funny how they skipped Luke 18:16

  • Raan

    Added Senator Lankford, “It’s not like we’re Klingons or something.”

  • Three Finger Salute

    2017: “An inelegant solution to an intractable problem”

    1939: “A final solution to the (insert “undesirable” group here) problem”

    Is anyone still pretending they’re not Nazis?

    And Kelly’s the one who’s supposed to “civilize” the orange savage!

  • OrdinaryJoe

    Trump broke his promise to these kids. He broke their hearts when he didn’t just go out on the wire and fucking give them amnesty. Obama fucked this one by not dealing with it when he could.

    • Hardly Ideal

      I’ll always wonder what could he have done if he wasn’t working with a Congress full of thinly veiled racists.

    • phoenix00

      It’s not like Obama didn’t /try/.

  • Les Appentis De la résistance

    I may be in the minority but its aboput time the GOP is forced to do something and take their lumps for it. They’ve been able to lie to their constituents and let Obama bandaid solutions on his own. Now its time to shit or get off the pot.

    • Zippy W Pinhead

      There is that silver lining to it- it’s put up or shut up time for the GOP. Unfortunately, it’ll probably end badly for those kids.

  • Truthiness2U

    Once again, I’d like to thank not just the assholes who voted these assholes into power, but all the utter fuckwits who stayed home/voted Third Party because, ‘both sides are the same! There is no difference between Hillary and a Nazi shit-gibbon!’

    Literally hundreds of thousands of people’s lives were on the line, and the non-voters/purity pouters couldn’t be bothered to stop being selfish asshats for a day. Fuck all these guys with rusty votes…slowly*

    *not included are people whose votes were genuinely suppressed.

    • Persistent Demme

      Well said.
      Thank you.

    “You have people in this country for 20 years, they’ve done a great job, they’ve done wonderfully, they’ve gone to school, they’ve gotten good marks, they’re productive — now we’re supposed to send them out of the country? I don’t believe in that.” tRump in 2011

    The old song once again: How could you believe me when I said I love you when you know I’ve been a liar all my life?

    • Mike Steele

      Great song title, along with ‘how can I miss you if you won’t go away’.

  • Zippy W Pinhead

    I wonder which Democrat David Brooks will blame this on?

    • Kooolest G

      AOT,K

    • Persistent Demme

      And her GD speeches to Goldman Sachs!

      • Weird Fishes

        You win too.

    • Weird Fishes

      You win.

      • RobKanC

        Nope. We all lost. Bigly!

  • Hardly Ideal

    Say, isn’t “Krikorian” an Armenian name?

  • RobKanC

    Fuck all you shit berniebros and idiots who voted for Green Party instead of Hillary because your shit brain cannot understand consequences. This is on the hands of these idiots. The conservatives showed what they were but you idiots couldn’t see it even when it hit your face.

  • Persistent Demme

    I hope he’s passing it on because HE WON’T BE AROUND IN SIX MONTHS!!!
    Mueller, you’re up.
    (I know, I’m a cock-eyed optimist!)

    • Les Appentis De la résistance

      He does seem to be burning the place (GOP) down as he leaves.

      • MilwaukeeKent

        2018 is going to be a crux point for the USA, If the election somehow indicates approval of Trump, or expanding GOP dominance, by a voting majority then a lot people, including me, will seriously have to consider finding another place to live, fighting back, or hunkering down for the duration. Right now we’re entering Shit Storm territory.

  • Jennaratrix

    Trump-punted. Is that like trepanned?

  • Les Appentis De la résistance
  • Scooby

    Those are all student loans that won’t be paid back….fiscal responsibility!

  • chascates

    Other than his SCOTUS appointment tossing children out of the country is the only campaign promise he’s fulfilled.

  • OneYieldRegular

    Once again, Trump spectacularly fails to lead, passing the buck because he can never, ever admit that he was wrong about something, not even when it’s as fundamentally unjust as going after children who are in the U.S. through no fault of their own. He should send that “Do your job!” tweet to himself.

  • Jonny On Maui

    The six-month punt by the eight-month cunt has given raving immigration jerks a sad

    This is why I love you Dok.

    • sgt. jmk of the résistance

      It made me cheer a little in the midst of the swirling clouds of awfulness.

  • JustPretendImNotHere

    So the ever loving and talented Susan Sarandon twitted her support for the Dreamers and got her ass handed to her thusly. Bless her heart…

    • Jesse

      “The CEOs of AT&T (T, Tech30), Best Buy (BBY) and Wells Fargo (WFC) are among the dozens of business leaders across the tech, retail and financial industries who have added their names to a letter defending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.”
      http://money.cnn.com/2017/09/04/news/companies/business-leaders-protect-daca/index.html

      Guess Susan Sarandon is CEO of AT&T, Best Buy, and Wells Fargo?

      • JustPretendImNotHere

        Recall, if you will, Ms. Sarandon stating in no uncertain terms that there was no difference between the candidates during last year’s fandango and try again.

  • harryr

    People could “obtain legal status if they work, pursue higher education or serve in the military.” – Isn’t that what the overwhelming majority of them are already doing?

    • HooverVilles

      And now they learn final lesson: Don’t trust the US to keep its promises.
      In the the predisent’s own highly educated best word, SAD!

    • phoenix00

      It’s as if they pulled themselves up by the bootstraps!

  • John Paschke

    So now the hate-America crowd believes that not only are illegal aliens brought to this country as children essentially Americans, they are “our best”. Better than those who immigrated legally. Better than those who gained citizenship by virtue of a fraudulent anchor baby interpretation of the 14th. Certainly better than those who are American citizens by birth. LOL

    • gratuitous

      You don’t know what you’re talking about. If you were quiet, you might learn something, but I’m not holding out much hope.

    • We love America more than you do, you fake yellow bellied pseudo patriot. Go put on your flag bra and keep silent, precious, we got a country to keep from being corrupted by you fascist fucks.

    • Mike Steele

      Hey, I’ve got a great idea! If we close our border to ANYONE under 30 who isn’t working, in school or the military, that would virtually eliminate the pestilence of the basement-dwelling Pepe brigades:)

    • TEX Dept. of Space Tacos

      “Better than those who gained citizenship by virtue of a fraudulent anchor baby interpretation of the 14th. Certainly better than those who are American citizens by birth.”

      What the fuck do you think the 14th Amendment says dummy? They’re americans by birth.

    • SeeTrain65

      “Da bossman” has a foreign name. Where are your parents from, douchebag?

      Have fun being ignorant.

    • HooverVilles

      Pfffft.

  • Celtic_Gnome

    I just called Rob Portman to urge him to support efforts to aid the Dreamers. Actually got a human being on the other end. He informed me that Senator Portman already supports such a legislative action.

    Is his gay son from Mexico?

    • Skeptical_thinker

      Never will a GOPer support a progressive act unless it helps them or theirs, personally.

      • It does help them personally. If they deport all the undocumented, who is going to nanny their kids?

    • SeeTrain65

      I’ll believe it when I see his vote.

  • wait! what?

    “an inelegant solution to an intractable problem”

    …borrowed from Donald’s wedding vows.

  • Weird how it is tough but fair now, and wimpy and irresponsible when Obama did it

    • HooverVilles

      As always, IOKiffYAR.

  • Mike Steele

    Hold on there, Beauregard – you PROMISED your first priority was to rid the country of felonious gangster illegals. Mission not yet even remotely accomplished. Since y’all are such underachievers, might I suggest one fool’s errand at a time?

  • HooverVilles

    Just can’t wait to see all those Trumpers in MAGA hats working in the produce fields, cleaning up in motel/hotel rooms, & etc.
    Yeaaah, not going to happen.
