Mexico 'profoundly laments' U.S. move to end 'Dreamers' program


Imagine that, Mexico welcoming with open arms their own citizens.
What’s next? Will they welcome the rest of their citizens to return to Mexico?? Nah, no more billions sent back to Mexico.

MEXICO CITY, Sept 5 (Reuters) - The Mexican government said on Tuesday it “profoundly laments” U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to phase out a popular program that shields hundreds of thousands of young unauthorized migrants from deportation.

The United States’ southern neighbor will strengthen efforts to guarantee consular protections for affected Mexican youth, Mexico’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

A majority of the nearly 800,000 young men and women who were brought into the United States illegally as children and protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program are Mexican nationals, or some 625,000, according to Carlos Sada, Mexico’s deputy foreign minister.

“They are exceptional. … This is as emotional for the United States as for Mexico,” he said at a news conference immediately following the announcement to end the program, urging for a quick solution to the uncertainty that “dreamers,” as they are commonly called, now face in their adopted home.

Mexico will welcome migrants who opt to return to Mexico with “open arms,” Sada said, offering assistance with work, finances and education.

The U.S. announcement to end DACA, created by former President Barack Obama in a 2012 executive order, came during the final day of talks in the Mexican capital to modernize the North American Free Trade Agreement, adding pressure to already tense conversations between the neighbors.


They are their citizens. We are not obligated to provide any of that and I think we need to change the rules in our educational system too. No more of this “not asking immigration status” at public schools. I pay a lot of money for those schools here in NJ and I read an article earlier that there are not enough ESL teachers to handle all of the students. Send them packing. No more free rides. No more handouts. Let them go back to Mexico and make their country great. American children have their own dreams and they are the only dreamers that matter.


McCain notes that while he opposed Obama’s signing of DACA, “I believe that rescinding DACA at this time is an unacceptable reversal of the promises and opportunities that have been conferred to these individuals.”

Isn’t this almost verbatim what he said about Obama’s entitlement program called the ACA?
