    Washington (CNN) Former President Barack Obama on Tuesday bashed his successor's decision to rescind an immigration order shielding some children of undocumented immigrants from deportation, calling the move "cruel" and "self-defeating."

    "To target these young people is wrong -- because they have done nothing wrong," Obama wrote in a post on Facebook hours after the decision was announced by President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. "It is self-defeating -- because they want to start new businesses, staff our labs, serve in our military, and otherwise contribute to the country we love. And it is cruel."

    The lengthy statement is among Obama's most forceful since departing office. Though he didn't mention Trump by name, he sharply criticized the President's motives and insisted rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was not legally required.

    "It's a political decision, and a moral question," Obama wrote. "Whatever concerns or complaints Americans may have about immigration in general, we shouldn't threaten the future of this group of young people who are here through no fault of their own, who pose no threat, who are not taking away anything from the rest of us."

    Obama said he hoped lawmakers pass a bill allowing those eligible for the DACA program to remain in the United States. And he framed the decision as a question of "basic decency."

    "This is about whether we are a people who kick hopeful young strivers out of America, or whether we treat them the way we'd want our own kids to be treated," he wrote. "It's about who we are as a people -- and who we want to be."

    Former President Bill Clinton joined Obama in calling Trump's decision "cruel."

    "It's wrong because it's bad policy that solves no pressing problem and raises new ones. It's wrong because it's irresponsible, passing the buck instead of offering sensible solutions for immigration reform. Most of all, it's wrong because it's cruel to send these young people to places many of them have never lived and do not know. For them this is home. The United States is their home," Clinton said in a statement on Tuesday.

    Clinton's statement also called on Congress to act immediately to "protect their status and pave the way for their future and America's future."

    Former Vice President Joe Biden also criticized Trump's move.

    "Brought by parents, these children had no choice in coming here. Now they'll be sent to countries they've never known. Cruel. Not America," Biden tweeted.

    Promised to speak out
    Just before leaving office in January, Obama told reporters during a news conference that he would speak out sparingly in his post-presidency. But he said revoking DACA was among the actions that would prompt him to weigh in.

    "The notion that we would just arbitrarily or because of politics punish those kids, when they didn't do anything wrong themselves, I think would be something that would merit me speaking out," Obama said at the time.

    DACA amounts to Obama's chief legacy item on immigration, though it's far reduced from the vision for major changes that he entered office promising.

    During his first years in office, Obama focused heavily on repairing a damaged economy. Instead of immigration, he chose health care as his first major legislative push.

    He approved the program in 2012 after unsuccessful efforts in Congress to pass a measure that would allow children of undocumented immigrants brought into the country illegally to avoid deportation.

    During most of his first term, Obama insisted that taking action unilaterally to spare DACA recipients from deportation wasn't possible. Instead, he said it was up to Congress to craft a solution.

    But after legislative efforts failed, Obama asked his attorney general and other administration lawyers to reassess his options for taking executive action. His administration argued that circumstances had changed after Congress was unable to pass legislation.

    Months before his re-election, he announced in the Rose Garden that he was taking action on his own, though qualified his move as a short-term fix.

    "This is not amnesty. This is not immunity. This is not a path to citizenship. It's not a permanent fix," Obama said. "This is a temporary stopgap measure."

    His decision ignited controversy and legal challenges, though polls show a large majority of Americans support measures that would allow people who came to the country illegally as children to remain.

    Barack Obama's statement
    https://www.facebook.com/barackobama/

    Immigration can be a controversial topic. We all want safe, secure borders and a dynamic economy, and people of goodwill can have legitimate disagreements about how to fix our immigration system so that everybody plays by the rules.

    But that’s not what the action that the White House took today is about. This is about young people who grew up in America – kids who study in our schools, young adults who are starting careers, patriots who pledge allegiance to our flag. These Dreamers are Americans in their hearts, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper. They were brought to this country by their parents, sometimes even as infants. They may not know a country besides ours. They may not even know a language besides English. They often have no idea they’re undocumented until they apply for a job, or college, or a driver’s license.

    Over the years, politicians of both parties have worked together to write legislation that would have told these young people – our young people – that if your parents brought you here as a child, if you’ve been here a certain number of years, and if you’re willing to go to college or serve in our military, then you’ll get a chance to stay and earn your citizenship. And for years while I was President, I asked Congress to send me such a bill.

    That bill never came. And because it made no sense to expel talented, driven, patriotic young people from the only country they know solely because of the actions of their parents, my administration acted to lift the shadow of deportation from these young people, so that they could continue to contribute to our communities and our country. We did so based on the well-established legal principle of prosecutorial discretion, deployed by Democratic and Republican presidents alike, because our immigration enforcement agencies have limited resources, and it makes sense to focus those resources on those who come illegally to this country to do us harm. Deportations of criminals went up. Some 800,000 young people stepped forward, met rigorous requirements, and went through background checks. And America grew stronger as a result.

    But today, that shadow has been cast over some of our best and brightest young people once again. To target these young people is wrong – because they have done nothing wrong. It is self-defeating – because they want to start new businesses, staff our labs, serve in our military, and otherwise contribute to the country we love. And it is cruel. What if our kid’s science teacher, or our friendly neighbor turns out to be a Dreamer? Where are we supposed to send her? To a country she doesn’t know or remember, with a language she may not even speak?

    Let’s be clear: the action taken today isn’t required legally. It’s a political decision, and a moral question. Whatever concerns or complaints Americans may have about immigration in general, we shouldn’t threaten the future of this group of young people who are here through no fault of their own, who pose no threat, who are not taking away anything from the rest of us. They are that pitcher on our kid’s softball team, that first responder who helps out his community after a disaster, that cadet in ROTC who wants nothing more than to wear the uniform of the country that gave him a chance. Kicking them out won’t lower the unemployment rate, or lighten anyone’s taxes, or raise anybody’s wages.

    It is precisely because this action is contrary to our spirit, and to common sense, that business leaders, faith leaders, economists, and Americans of all political stripes called on the administration not to do what it did today. And now that the White House has shifted its responsibility for these young people to Congress, it’s up to Members of Congress to protect these young people and our future. I’m heartened by those who’ve suggested that they should. And I join my voice with the majority of Americans who hope they step up and do it with a sense of moral urgency that matches the urgency these young people feel.

    Ultimately, this is about basic decency. This is about whether we are a people who kick hopeful young strivers out of America, or whether we treat them the way we’d want our own kids to be treated. It’s about who we are as a people – and who we want to be.

    What makes us American is not a question of what we look like, or where our names come from, or the way we pray. What makes us American is our fidelity to a set of ideals – that all of us are created equal; that all of us deserve the chance to make of our lives what we will; that all of us share an obligation to stand up, speak out, and secure our most cherished values for the next generation. That’s how America has traveled this far. That’s how, if we keep at it, we will ultimately reach that more perfect union.

    本来应该用立法方式处理的事情,他躲懒弄个总统备忘录敷衍,造成对美国依法治国的立国之本的破坏不说,也造成这些年轻人前途的高度不确定性。现在川普依法行事,要议会立法一劳永逸解决这个问题,他又搞不清状况出来说三道四。

    这些左派真的是不可救药。

    怎么不见特朗普推这个?


    特朗普:奥巴马窃听我好可怕!美司法部否认
    2017-09-04 06:47:57 来源: 新华社

      美国司法部2日确认,去年美国总统竞选期间,时任总统贝拉克·奥巴马没有下令窃听候选人、现任总统唐纳德·特朗普。

      特朗普当选总统后,于今年3月4日在推特上称,竞选期间遭奥巴马窃听。这一说法最早出现在个别保守派媒体上。

      “太可怕了。刚刚发现,就在我获胜之前,奥巴马在特朗普大厦里窃听我。不过他一无所获。这是麦卡锡主义。”特朗普写道。

      “在神圣的选举期间,奥巴马总统竟然窃听我的电话,太差劲了。这是尼克松的水门事件。”

      水门事件是美国历史上重大政治丑闻。1972年总统竞选期间,共和党候选人、时任总统理查德·尼克松的竞选班子成员潜入民主党全国委员会办公室企图安装窃听器。这次事件被曝光导致尼克松于1974年辞职。麦卡锡主义即美国上世纪50年代的反共排外运动,许多人受到监视迫害。

      特朗普还要求国会调查奥巴马政府当时是否滥用调查权。

      时任白宫发言人肖恩·斯派塞还援引美国福克斯新闻电视台的报道称,具体实施“窃听”的是英国情报部门。

      不过,特朗普方面至今也没有出示任何遭窃听的证据。

      奥巴马方面立即坚决否认曾监听特朗普,美国国家安全局局长迈克尔·罗杰斯当月在国会听证会上也否认英国情报部门实施监听。

      美国司法部2日公开一份法庭档案,证实司法部确认奥巴马没有下令窃听特朗普。“联邦调查局和国家安全处都证实,他们没有3月4日推文中所称的那类监听记录,”档案写道。联邦调查局和国家安全处都隶属司法部。

      名为“美国监督”的民间组织依据信息公开法,要求司法部公开这份档案。

      对于这份档案的内容,白宫发言人简短回应道:“这不是新闻。我们数周前就已经作出回应。”

    奥巴马上任后曾三次推动国会对DREAM ACT投票, 但都没有通过, 没办法才搞DACA。

    这个法案已经十多年了, 从布什时代就在国会里讨论。 床总想半年解决,简直就是痴人说梦。
