Jeffrey Lord: Dems 'Taking the Issue' With Inaction on DACA

(Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now")

Columnist Jeffrey Lord told Newsmax TV on Tuesday that Democrats are "taking the issue" on DACA — and their inaction is empowering President Donald Trump.

"This is what's called in the world of political Washington 'taking the issue,'" Lord, who served in the Reagan White House told "Newsmax Now" host John Bachman.

"Instead of solving the problem, they'd rather have the issue out there to inflame people — and that's what they're doing."

Trump has repeatedly slammed Democrats for not putting forth a permanent solution to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which affects as many as 700,000 young aliens who were brought here as children.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced last September that DACA would end March 5, but two federal judges have ruled the Trump administration could not immediately begin deporting recipients while courts weigh legal challenges over ending the program.

The illegals can begin applying for DACA renewals under the court order.

But the Democrats' waffling on the issue has also outraged recipients, Lord told Bachman, noting "Dreamers" blocked the entrance to the Democratic National Committee's Washington offices earlier this month.

"They didn't just protest in front of the Capitol," he said. "They went over to the Democratic National Committee.

"They were out and front in protesting the Democratic Party.

"That's the problem here for Democrats," Lord added, mentioning also House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California was booed by "Dreamers" in San Francisco last year.

"They've got a real problem on their hands," he told Bachman, "and the president is not going to let them get away with it."
