Compassion and how it relates to DACA

So the playing field is set; Republicans and Trump are cruel and the Democrats are coming from a place of compassion.

The DACA program is a worker visa. If DACA is done away with, people will not be immediately deported. We’re still an immigration based country.

What would be the just, compassionate thing to do? In my judgment, this just comes down to the fact that the Democrats want voters and labor unions want workers.

But Nancy Pelosi said that Trump is the first president who has been anti-immigration and that he has rejected the fact that immigration is the life blood of our country. Really?

I think DACA is going to be made into law. Should the parents, the ones who came here illegally, be allowed to become U.S. voters? I say no. The children can vote but not the parents.

Pundits are saying that people aren’t being compassionately Christian if they want to get rid of DACA. But Christianity fought for the government to be responsive to the people because it’s less likely to create abuses. Christianity didn’t want to strip from the country the rule of law.

As always, please listen to the full audio clip for complete context.
