As he often brilliantly did, Charles Krauthammer saw what was coming. When Obama, after saying he couldn’t unilaterally do DACA because Congress opposed it, did it anyway, Krauthammer warned a future GOP president would unilaterally act on his priorities. https://t.co/uA1ZsGmLgb
I continue to disagree with the President using an emergency declaration to bypass Congress. This degrades what an emergency means and Republicans who opposed Obama’s DACA executive order should also be opposed to this on principle.

The Democrats are investigating Trump’s use of the National Emergencies Act yet they said nothing on all those occasions when Obama used it. They even defend DACA when it is clearly unconstitutional. Dangerous clowns. https://t.co/nMKO2Aaaz1
No, Amnesty is not a part of my offer. It is a 3 year extension of DACA. Amnesty will be used only on a much bigger deal, whether on immigration or something else. Likewise there will be no big push to remove the 11,000,000 plus people who are here illegally-but be careful Nancy!
Trump ordered the end of DACA and TPS. Then he shut down the government. Now he’s holding federal workers hostage, saying he'll temporarily give back what he took away—only if we give him a pointless, ineffective wall he falsely promised Mexico would pay for. This is a bad deal.
The reason the DACA for Wall deal didn’t get done was that a ridiculous court decision from the 9th Circuit allowed DACA to remain, thereby setting up a Supreme Court case. After ruling, Dems dropped deal - and that’s where we are today, Democrat obstruction of the needed Wall.
