Many people likely grew up hearing sayings such as “turnabout is fair play, fair exchange isn’t robbery, you reap what you sow, karma is a b*tch,” etc. With those wise words in mind, it’s fair to say that if you live life long enough and are willing to honestly reflect on some things, you have found the sayings above to be true. When you do/treat people wrong, wrong finds its way back into your life.
Some folks need to learn the aforementioned lessons the hard way. This seems almost certain where the Trump administration’s anticipated plans to roll back DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), are concerned. An initiative of President Obama, DACA is designed to allow undocumented children under the age of 16 who have not committed serious crimes the opportunity to stay in the U.S. for two years if they’ve attended school or joined the military. Deportation is set aside, and the youth become eligible for a work permit.
Simply put, just as Barron Trump shouldn’t be chastised and punished because his father is encouraging/enabling racism, propagating hate, and peddling fear, the children of undocumented adults shouldn’t be punished because their parents brought them to America without following the proper protocol. That’s the reason for DACA.
The innocent children who will be adversely impacted by Trump’s decision are the reason so many people are heartbroken and adamantly speaking out against the Trump administration’s plans. The innocent children are also the reason former adviser to Jeb Bush, Sally Bradshaw, says Republicans who sit idly by while Trump moves forward with ending DACA will have to answer for their hateful acts:
‘Those in Republican leadership who have enabled his behavior by standing silent or making excuses for him deserve the reckoning that will eventually come for the GOP.’
Bradshaw should know the impact reversing DACA will have on Republicans — she co-authored the document known as the Autopsy, the report complied by Republicans after their 2012 presidential loss. Bradshaw withheld very little as she shared her thoughts on Trump and DACA:
‘Donald Trump is anti-woman, anti-Hispanic, anti-black, anti-anything that would bring the country together. The only thing he is for is himself.’
As for how Trump’s treatment of the very group Republicans courted so hard after their 2012 loss makes her feel, Bradshaw explained:
‘It makes me terrifically sad to be honest — sad for the party of ideas that I supported for over 30 years — even more sad for the country and the fact that we can no longer have a credible and important debate about issues that will lead to problem solving.’
Displaying her willingness to do something that many Republicans haven’t shown the courage to consistently do, Bradshaw put people over her party:
‘I am a conservative. But I can’t and won’t be a Republican as long as Donald Trump is the leader of the Republican Party.’
Why does it seem that Bradshaw is the only Republican willing to denounce the party while Trump is the face of it? Something is terribly wrong with that picture.
