California’s attorney general Monday rebutted President Donald Trump’s claim that Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), the federal program that allows temporary residency to some people brought to the United States illegally as children, was “probably dead,” and urged fellow Democrats not to compromise on other immigration issues to win a quick legislative fix for so-called “Dreamers.”
“Not only is DACA not dead the way the president said, they are taking renewal applications,” said California Attorney General Xavier Becerra in an interview with The Sacramento Bee. “I would hope that those supporters of ‘Dreamers’ are able to go in and fight fiercely for a good deal without making bad compromises.”
In the Sacramento Bee‘s report, Becerra said nothing about the brutal beatings and killings administered by the LAPD and other California law enforcement agencies, against the poor, the homeless, the mentally ill, and people of color.
So tell us again who’s the racist Mr. Attorney General?
Becerra’s comments echo concerns of other Democrats, including California Sen. Kamala Harris and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, both of whom have suggested focusing on “clean” DACA legislation that leaves other immigration issues for later talks.
Their silence seems to indicate that they think the Police State is doing a great job brutalizing California’s weakest citizens as well.
