To the Editor:

President Trump just terminated Barack Obama's DACA program. Predictably, liberal pundits are screaming bloody murder.

The DACA program essentially provides safe haven for children who arrived here when their parents illegally entered this country.

Let me use a hypothetical illustration to show you why these children are not so innocent, as follows:

Husband and wife are poor. They wish to economically benefit their young children. To achieve their goal, they commit bank robbery. They escape immediate apprehension. They take every cent they acquired from the bank heist and buy dream homes for their children.

A few years later, the crime is solved. Because the dream homes were purchased with stolen money, the homes are forfeited and the "innocent" children are evicted. In other words, by operation of existing law, the children are not allowed to benefit from their parents' criminal actions.

In a like manner, children who arrived in this country as illegal aliens, notwithstanding their youth at the time of arrival or the fact they were involuntarily swept up by parental decisions, should not be allowed to benefit from unquestioned criminal misconduct. It really is that simple.

You either believe in the enforcement of our immigration laws and policies, or you believe in something else. What do you believe?
