The reason President Obama, in his unconstitutional role as pretend legislator, unilaterally created DACA was because the actual legislative branch did not have the votes to pass an actual law.
And the reason is simple.
Americans were sick and tired of Washington bending over backwards for illegal aliens while we take it up the back door.
And since Americans gave their elected representatives holy hell about the so-called DREAM Act, Congress wouldn’t act.
But instead of accepting that the American people – through their representatives – were saying “no” to the DREAM Act, Barack Obama simply passed the DREAM Act with the stroke of a pen.
As if he was both the Executive branch and the Legislative branch.
In other words, Obama violated the constitutional Separation of Powers to enact a law Congress couldn’t pass.
And at the time he did this, most Republicans in Congress were outraged.
Even Paul Ryan whined like a stuck pig about how unconstitutional DACA was.
But that was all for show.
Now that President Trump is indicating that he will end DACA, Republicans in Congress – including Paul Ryan – are demanding that he leave it alone.
And you want to know why?
Because they know if Trump ends DACA, they will be forced to act on the so-called DREAM Act.
And the last thing these guys want is to once again be seen screwing over their constituents while being caught in yet another campaign lie.
A lot of ppl in congress seem pissed off they'll have to work on this DACA issue

Congressional Republicans do not want to pay the price for betraying their constituents. And Barack Obama creating DACA spared them.
So if Trump ends it — and they are forced to betray their voters while siding with Democrats and illegal aliens – Republican incumbents know they’ll be in trouble in 2018.
And when the choices are war or dishonor, Congressional Republicans will always choose dishonor.
But that’s hardly a surprise. Most Establishment Republicans are weak-willed, flaccid cowards. And they would prefer not to have to take a stand on anything – Obamacare, tax reform, or immigration.
The party of Reagan – the party of bold colors, not pale pastels – have become the party of the palest pastels ever.
And that is precisely why they are now demanding that President Trump leave this unconstitutional DACA in place.
Sure, they railed against it when Obama did it. But that was only for show.
They knew they couldn’t stop Obama. So pretending to be outraged was easy because it required no bold action or courageous commitment.
But President Trump ending an unconstitutional “law” that was never a “law” would require bold, colorful action from the party of pale pastels.
Every moronic statement coming out Congress from these timid, feckless Republicans could be summed up this way:
By ending DACA, President Trump is going to force us to go on record in our support for illegals over Americans. And that will screw us at the ballot box. The President turning his back on the DREAMERS will leave us no choice but to turn our backs on our constituents.
That in a nutshell is why they are so upset.
And I can’t help but wonder if that is exactly why President Trump is giving Congress six months to act on DACA.
Could it be that he hopes to expose them for the lying, conniving cowards that they are in plenty of time to primary these assholes in 2018?
I suppose time will tell.
