FACT Report: DACA and the Rule of Law

Last week President Trump began the process of winding down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) that was instituted by President Obama by executive order.

While the young adults served by the program did not come to America of their own volition and how we should now treat them is a question about which reasonable minds may differ, one thing is clear: The program is a change in immigration policy that only Congress should have been able to constitutionally authorize. In other words, the Constitution and the rule of law that requires adherence to the Constitution have been ignored.

When presidents, Congress, and the American people are willing to lay aside the rule of law because it “interferes” with what they want to do, then history teaches us that tyranny, in time, is sure to follow.

The FACT Report, featured on several conservative radio stations, is a weekly one-minute audio commentary about a political or cultural issue affecting Tennesseans.
