Read this reply from the Dishonorable Senator Tom Cotton about DACA.

Dear Sinkingfeeling,

Thank you for sharing your concerns with me about Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. It's good to hear from you, as always.

I strongly oppose former President Obamaís Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy, which defers immigration action against illegal immigrants who claim to have entered the country as minors. I urge the Trump administration to work with legislators to end the failed policies encouraging young individuals to enter the United States illegally. We must reform our current system to secure our border and end this unsustainable course.

I therefore donít support Senator Lindsey Grahamís (R-SC) Bar Removal of Individuals Who Dream and Grow our Economy Act (BRIDGE) Act of 2017, though I do share Senator Grahamís concerns about fixing the immigration system. I am committed to an immigration policy that will protect our borders, stop illegal immigration, and maintain a strong legal immigration process that serves U.S. interests. However, our federal government is failing at a core constitutional duty: securing our borders and enforcing immigration laws. I will work during my time in the Senate to fix these failures. Should any relevant legislation come before the Senate regarding visas, permits, or an entry-exit system, you can be assured that I will keep your concerns in mind.

You can help me as I aim to represent Arkansansóplease continue to keep me informed of your opinion. A well-functioning representative democracy relies on active, engaged citizens like you to inform and hold their elected leaders accountable. I always find input from my constituents on matters of public policy to be both insightful and useful as I work to represent your interests.

I am truly honored to serve as your Senatoróplease know that your interests and affairs have my unceasing attention. Always feel free to call my office at (202) 224-2353 or visit www.cotton.senate.gov.


Sincerely,

Tom Cotton
United States Senator

2. WTF?

"...which defers immigration action against illegal immigrants who claim to have entered the country as minors. I urge the Trump administration to work with legislators to end the failed policies encouraging young individuals to enter the United States illegally."

That's not how DACA works and he knows it. DACA participants don't claim to have entered the US as minors; they did enter as minors, brought by their parents, and they had to prove they were minors in order to be in the program. In fact, they have to prove they entered before they reached age 16. And they weren't "encouraged" to enter illegally; they didn't make that decision at all. Their parents brought them. Many were babies or small children. And since DACA requires applicants to have been in the US since June 15, 2007, how can it possibly encourage any more children under 16 to enter the US?

Cotton is a lying sack of shit. But we knew that.

5. At least the response actually addressed the subject

I disagree with Sen. Cotton on practically every point of his demented little screed, but at least he addressed the issue at hand. I'd be tempted to follow up by saying that he is certainly not devoting his attention to the interests and affairs of Arkansans, and is in fact working against the stated preferences of Arkansans.

That, of course, doesn't matter to Tehran Tom, enemy of the American people.
