President Donald Trump has announced that he plans to end the DACA program, which protects immigrants who were brought here as children, from being deported. The decisions has prompted a backlash from Democrats and conservatives alike.
Many people, including some members of Trump’s own party, view the decision to end DACA as cruel since the people it protected have known no home, but the United States. Trump’s decision to deport them could uproot families and destroy the lives of people who have contributed to this country in many different ways. One of the people who has spoken out against this plan is former Vice President Joe Biden. Taking to Twitter, Biden called Trump’s decision “cruel” and said it did not represent American value.
Biden’s tweet earned many replies on Twitter. The vast majority of them expressed support for Biden’s message and called on Trump to rethink his decision to end DACA.
