GOP Sen Flake: DACA Children ‘Should Not Be Punished for the Sins of Their Parents’


Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said it would be wrong for President Donald Trump to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy.

When asked about Trump’s campaign promise to end DACA, Flake said, “[I]t would be the right thing to do, to go back on a promise. Obviously, you hope that presidents keep some of their promises and you hope they ignore others. This is one that he ought to ignore.”

He continued, “There are 800,000 DACA kids, kids who were brought across the border, the median age I think is six years old for those 800,000 when they came across the border, they should not be punished for the sins of their parents. That’s the basic principle we ought to follow. They are in school, some graduated and worked almost all of them, some 90 percent of them are in the work force. To remove them from the country, to split up families like this is just not the way we ought to go.”

No problem. We send the whole damn family back. Why is that not a solution? 

Question for The Flake: Why is it morally reprehensible for America to send illegal aliens packing but it is not morally reprehensible for these illegal aliens to enter the country illegally in the first place?

Liberals – yes, Flake, you are a liberal – are experts at turning morality on its head. Obamacare is another example. For example, why is it morally reprehensible to end a failing healthcare program but not morally reprehensible to have lied repeatedly in creating it in the first place?

Liberalism is morally reprehensible, and if we don’t fight liberalism on moral grounds we will lose the fight.
