Chelsea Clinton Just Issued An Urgent Alert Regarding Today’s DACA Announcement

With the country looking on in horror, President Donald Trump announced the end of DACA today, the policy which protects some 800,000 people who have lived in this country since childhood. They are every bit as much American as documented citizens, and Trump has chosen to betray them in a bigoted appeal to his base.

Now, Chelsea Clinton – never one to remain silent over issues as morally imperative as this one – has taken to Twitter to voice her opposition to Trump’s decision. Reiterating how fundamentally cruel it is to revoke DACA, she retweeted an important thread of tweets from Vivian Yee, a writer for The New York Times.

Seeing the dates and numbers in black and white is a sobering thing. Trump has launched an all-out assault on individuals who the government previously pledged to protect. It’s a stunning betrayal of these people, yes, but it’s also a betrayal of the values that make this country so great.

There is no way to explain his move other than as a blatant gift to the most xenophobic members of his base. It’s impractical, destructive, and hateful. Chelsea Clinton is correct that it’s a painful confronting these issues head-on, but we have a moral obligation to do so.
