Lauren Jauregui Slams Donald Trump for His DACA Decision

Fifth Harmony singer Lauren Jauregui is speaking out to slam Donald Trump‘s decision to end the DACA program.

The program allows illegal immigrants who came into the country as children a way to stay in the country without being deported.

“It’s incredible to me that you’ll pardon a man who is known for running his prison as a Latino concentration camp and call him a patriot, but then deport kids with a dream to be successful citizens with safe lives,” Lauren wrote on Twitter. “You disgust me. You and your squad of Republican elite/cowards are truly sick humans. Pardoning criminals and criminalizing the vulnerable.”

It has been shown that the U.S. government could lose $460 billion in revenue over the next decade if DACA is shut down and 700,000 people could lose their jobs.

    CNN parrot…her rhetoric is just that…rhetoric.

    Why do people want it to be ok for people to be here illegally? Just come in LEAGALLY. Like you would have to do in any other country in the world. Why does the USA have to be the one to let anyone in without any kind of regulation?????? It’s ridiculous. These people are advocating for lawlessness and they have not clue about reality.

  • Lorelai Killmore

    Look up what you’re talking about before you throw stones. DACA is about 800,000 people who came to the US as CHILDREN who had no say in the matter of where they lived. They were brought here illegally by their parents – it’s not their fault and most have only known the US as their homes. They’re registered with the government and pay a fee, along with taxes like everyone else. It’s a unique situation – not just a blanket issue. Take some time to read about it before going off on the internet.

  • TaraTeller

    I agree with you completely. No other country in the world lets people illegally come into and live in their country. Why should illegals here get benefits intended for citizens?

  • Lorelai Killmore

    Just so you’re aware. Of the people in DACA, 90% are employed and 0% have criminal records. They pay taxes and a fee every two years to be here.

    Also they are ineligible for the following:

    - Medicaid
    - Food Stamps
    - SSI
    - Welfare
    - Section 8
    - ACA

    This ISN’T a blanket issue on illegal immigratrion. It’s about people that came here as CHILDREN with no say in the matter.

  • Lorelai Killmore

    How so? Please explain.

  • TaraTeller

    Why haven’t they become citizens?

  • Lorelai Killmore

    Because they can’t become citizens. Permanent residency is the step necessary to become a citizen and since DACA recipients are not eligible to be permanent residents, they cannot become citizens.

    There is no path for anyone covered under DACA to become citizens.

  • TaraTeller

    Then give them a year to become citizens or get out. I’m glad Trump stopped DACA.

  • TaraTeller

    nice copy and paste job

  • Lorelai Killmore

    Yes! Tara, that’s an actual plan! I’m sure they’d love that. It’s better than just deporting them after six months to a country they’ve never lived in. People who sympathize with DACA recipients aren’t for all access immigration to the US. It’s just about taking care of a real problem that these people had no say in. I’m glad we agree!

  • Lorelai Killmore

    I’m happy you did your research too! Doesn’t it feel better knowing more facts? I like it too!

  • Mihaela Radu

    Shut up, libtard!

  • Lorelai Killmore

    Lol. Adorable.

  • basementcat

    Sweety, I think you spelled lizard wrong! LOL!

  • Lorelai Killmore

    Aw! That makes little to no sense. Try again!

  • basementcat

    Oh, sorry, wasn’t directing that at you

  • Lorelai Killmore

    No worries. My bad :) sorry about that.

  • rosaryblue

    I know all about it! They should start the process of legalization. End of story. Why stay illegal? And just letting it go tells other would be illegal aliens that it will be ok – just come in and bring your kids, nothing will happen. NO OTHER COUNTRY ON EARTH allows for illegals to remain in their country, WHY SHOULD WE? And don’t patronize me by saying I should look up my facts just because you don’t agree with what I say. That’s just low and ignorant.

  • Lorelai Killmore

    You don’t know your facts because people here under DACA literally CAN’T become legalized citizens. There’s no way for them to start the process. That’s the whole problem. Look it up.

    The 800,000 people covered under DACA were willing to sign up with the plan because they had no option for legalization and trusted our government to come out of hiding and register.

    I’m not looking to trade insults at all. I really just don’t think you’ve looked into the facts on this issue.

  • rosaryblue

    I completely understand the issue, completely. And if I didn’t you outlined it really well. But here is the issue – Obama left them ALL hanging. And now we have to make a point of everyone else coming in legally or not at all. I’m a strong supporter of all DACAs getting a pass and becoming legalized but it has to stop with that group. No other country on the entire planet would do this, they vigorously remove illegal aliens yet they expect the US to show complete leniency. People have to start thinking critically and stop making it about everything else other than the fact that there are factions promoting complete lawlessness. This started with Obama giving the DACA group false hope and not grounding the program within the law. And now its about who likes Trump. And in the middle is a group of people just trying to live their lives and the fact that now it’s ok to break the law in the USA.

  • Lorelai Killmore

    You never said any of this in your comments but I’m glad you did now. Thank you. You actually agree that DACA recipients should stay. At the heart of the matter, that’s the issue. Regardless of your thoughts on immigration in general, DACA is a special circumstance and I agree with you – not too many people understand it. That’s why I was so thorough in making the point of how these 800,000 people were a very unique, special case – not just a blanket immigration issue.

    And to be fair to Obama and even trump – the house and the senate had decades to deal with this issue and could never come to an agreement, so really it’s their fault as well that it’s taken this long and gotten this far.
