DACA Statement from President Donald J. Trump Annotated

The Washington Post provided an annotated version of the president’s statement on the repeal of DACA. Click here to find the document and a video of Attorney General Jeff Sessions looking about as smugly proud of himself as he can be.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was instituted under President Barack Obama in 2012. Under DACA, as it’s called, those who immigrated to the United States illegally as children could apply to work legally in the country. Hundreds of thousands did over the next few years. Polling shows that the program is broadly popular.

In doing so, the White House released a statement from President Trump outlining the rationale for the decision. Below, that statement, with The Washington Post’s notes on individual posts annotated using Genius. Click yellow highlighted text for more information.
