A CNN poll released today shows that the majority of Americans think it is more important that Congress avoids a federal government shutdown than it is to pass a bill protecting illegal aliens brought into the country as children. Those who currently receive protections under former President Barack Obama’s executive order known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) are commonly known as “Dreamers.”
According to CNN, 56% of Americans would rather the federal government stay open for business than Congress reach a compromise on DACA. “Still, 56% overall say approving a budget agreement to avoid a shutdown is more important than continuing the DACA program, while just 34% choose DACA over a shutdown. Democrats break narrowly in favor of DACA — 49% say it’s more important vs. 42% who say avoiding a shutdown is the priority — while majorities of both Republicans (75%) and independents (57%) say avoiding a shutdown is more important.”
DACA is now over 4.5 million people
So far, Obama and his allies have managed to head off any lawsuit against DACA.
But the U.S. courts have condemned and blocked Obama’s expanded 2014 version of DACA, called the ‘Deferred Actions for Parents of Americans,” which would have provided work-permits to roughly 4.5 million illegals. Many Democrats admit the 2012 DACA has the same legal flaws as the illegitimate 2014 DAPA. Trump’s deputies know this — and they are now watching a group of GOP Attorneys General promise to file a killer lawsuit against DACA in September.
