Congressman Cleaver Opposed to the Rescinding of DACA

(Washington, D.C.) – Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II denounces President Trump’s decision today to terminate the Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and reaffirms his commitment to protecting our country’s Dreamers. Today, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the administration will end DACA with a six month delay.

“DACA allowed determined and hopeful youth to come out of the shadows and into the light. These children trusted their government to take care of them which is why they came forward. Now, this administration is turning their backs on them and I will not turn my back on them,” said Congressman Emanuel Cleaver.

In Missouri, DACA has allowed more than 3,500 young people to come forward. They passed background checks and currently live and work legally in this country. A recent survey found that after receiving DACA, recipients moved to jobs with better pay that matched their education and training. Ending DACA would cost Missouri more than $209 million in annual GDP losses according to a report from the Washington: Center for American Progress, 2017.

Since the program was established in 2012, over 800 thousand young people have come forward who were granted temporary protection from deportation.

“There simply is no reason for this immoral decision. DACA recipients have grown up in this country, served in this country’s military, have attended school in this country, and worked hard for this country. It is up to us in Congress now to work together to protect the Dreamers and allow them to stay here with their families,” said Congressman Cleaver.

Then work on outlawing wearing baseball caps backwards that have been the style for a quarter of a century please. The country doesn't need to continue encouraging doufousry.

Of course Cleaver denounces DACA Cleaver is all about doing things illegally.

It was against the United States Constitution for Obama to sign DACA into action.

The kids have nothing to do with the crime, but the parents have broken U.S. laws and used their kids to illegally enter into the U.S. That's sick! These people were NOT threatened by their country and are NOT refugees like some lawyers in Kansas City would have everyone think.

Sad that kids have to pay for their parents crimes.

What is the good reverend's take regarding defaulting on SBA loans and pushing the financial burden to the taxpayers?

The best thing for Trump is for Clever to keep speaking in public. This man has been wrong so many times he has no credibility left.
"Lets invest more money in the Jazz District."
When I hear him talk I think to myself that anyone own the other side would be better.

Clever was suppose to retire by now and out of the House. The is where Sly James was to go since he is termed out as Mayor.
Clever is still broke and will never retire from the House. Word has it that Clever also has early stages of mental illness.
Look for James to go to Burns and Mac as a marketing specialist for urban projects. This will only happen if the Airport project goes to Burns and Mac, of course...

I see Cleaver got right to work on an immigration bill.

Cleaver and the other POSs in Congress have 6 months to pass a law to replace DECA. Fortunately they're too disorganized and incompetent to do so.

No credibility.

Trump didn't do the right thing here. He should have done a complete rescinding of this ILLEGAl Obama legislation. He sold out those of us who support him. With that kind of action, he deserves whatever he gets from the likes of Cleaver.

Cleaver- "The lack of crosstown expressway(71 highway) has been the reason there has not been more development along the west side of KC."
Clever- "The additional investment in the 18th and Vine District will spur private development there"
This guy is wrong so consistently that he lacks all credibility...

The cleave doesn't show signs of early stage mental illness...... he's had it all along! But don't worry, us taxpayers are going to and continue to pay for his healthcare and his paycheck until he's dead and gone! What's sad is he actually thinks he deserves it
