‘Terrifying times’: The internet reacts in horror at Trump-Sessions plan to punish ‘Dreamers’
President Donald Trump’s Justice Department will end a program that allows undocumented “Dreamers” who came to the U.S. as children to remain in the country — and social media users blasted him and his supporters.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the plan, which will phase out the Obama-era program if Congress cannot pass a law to replace it.

Sessions not taking questions at end of #DACA announcement is a punk move.

Shouted question: "Will you use the personal information of DACA recipients to deport them?"
Sessions walks away. What terrifying times.

He cares not for laws, only for fucking over brown people.

Republicans should be thinking long & hard about the message that's been sent to Hispanics w/ Arpaio pardon & now DACA. Big problem.

In his past life, when Trump wanted to punish immigrants who were brought here as kids, he actually had to date them.

This Administration is an ongoing experiment in what happens when you put the worst people in America in charge of leading America

There is nothing sadder than an old white man clinging desperately to the racist dream that his society will never change.
