Lewandowski: Trump Has Right to End 'Unconstitutional' DACA

(Fox & Friends)

By    |   Monday, 04 September 2017 06:44 PM

President Donald Trump has the right to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program because it's unconstitutional, his former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Monday.

"If the president does rescind this, it's because it's been unconstitutional. We know that for sure," Lewandowski said on Fox News.

"And it's the president's prerogative to inject in this."

Lewandowski then called out Congress for wanting Trump to hold off ending the program — reports say he will do just that on Tuesday — after years of doing nothing about the 2012 policy.

"But here's my concern: all of a sudden we're hearing from leaders in Congress who are saying, 'oh Mr. President, give us the opportunity to act.' They've had years to act.

"This is what Congress always does. When a crisis comes before them that they have punted down the road for five years now, they decide that they're not going to like what the president's going to do, which is to fulfill his campaign promises. So they're asking for more time. We have no more time."

Known as DACA, the policy allows people who illegally came to the U.S. with their parents as children to stay if they meet certain requirements.

Officials in New York threatened to file a lawsuit if the program is ended.
