Pelosi: Trump Ending DACA Is ‘Cruel Act of Political Cowardice’

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement today that if President Trump ends DACA, it would be a “cruel act of political cowardice.”

Many Democrats have been tearing into the President since the report last night on Trump’s plans to end DACA with a six-month delay.

Some Republicans have criticized the move, while others have been saying that Congress should act on a legislative solution.

Pelosi’s statement invokes the Joe Arpaio pardon as she criticizes the President for this move:

Last week Pelosi reached out to Speaker Paul Ryan and said he should meet with Democratic leaders and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus to “discuss a comprehensive legislative solution for our country’s DREAMers.”
