Yet another member of the Trump administration has penned his resignation, citing differences of opinion over the DACA decision made earlier. This is one in a large number or resignations for the administration that has found itself in a bit of a hole. This decision was the right one – the executive order made by Obama was not only controversial, it was also unconstitutional.
And yet, it is Trump that receives the brute of the hate. That is how this has gone for the better part of 8 months now. President Trump announces something, receives threatening backlash, things settle down. Democrats have been fighting anything put forth by the administration simply because Donald Trump is the leader.
It is looking like we found another democrat hiding in the administration after Javier Palomarez, President and CEO of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, resigned from the conservative administration. This probably does not shock very many around the president, as they knew this was coming. Still, it is yet another official within the administration that has felt so inclined to make this kind of decision.
The resignation came only minutes after it was announced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions that the DACA program would be rescinded. Before everyone goes completely insane, it is important to note that Trump did not completely destroy the program. For starters, there is a 6 month period that is open for these so-called “dreamers.” That means they will not see any deportations for that time.
Also, Congress now has the ability to come up with a better solution that is bipartisan rather than an executive order made by a liberal president.
“I tried to work as hard as I could with this administration on this issue. And I continue to want to work with them on other issues like tax reform, like health care reform, and so many other important things, but I really don’t see the logic in doing what we’re doing right now. This didn’t have to happen,” Palomarez said.
This will likely not have too much of an impact on the administration, but it is newsworthy nonetheless.
