The President addressed the media Friday shortly after signing a much-maligned $1.3 trillion omnibus spending package into law; directly addressing the ‘Dreamers’ and saying Republicans -not Democrats- are on their side.
“I can tell you this, and I say this to DACA-recipients: The Republicans are with you, they want to get your situation taken care of. The Democrats fought this every single inch of the way. They did not want DACA in this bill,” said the President after signing the proposal.
“As you know, DACA is often tied to the wall, the $25 billion for the wall and for other things. So, that will be coming up very soon,” he added.
“But I want the Hispanic community to know, I want the DACA-recipients to know, that Republicans are much more on your side than the Democrats who are using you for their own purposes,” said the Commander-in-Chief.
