Ingraham to Trump: 'Remember How You Won the Presidency'
President Donald Trump is expected to announce on Tuesday that he’s ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The DACA program was formed through executive order by former President Barack Obama in 2012 and allows for certain people who come to the U.S. illegally as minors protection from immediate deportation.
Trump is reportedly calling for a six-month delay in ending the program, which will give Congress time to pass legislation to address the approximately 800,000 people DACA covers.
Some have warned that pushing the decision to Congress undermines the president's agenda and is a step toward amnesty.
On "Fox & Friends," Laura Ingraham said this likely won't result in the mass deportation of hundreds of thousands of so-called DREAMers, but it's important that Trump follow through on his campaign promise to get tough on illegal immigration.
"His instincts politically when he ran for president were frankly brilliant. He beat the Bushes, the Obamas, big business, the media," Ingraham said. "He beat them all, not by moving to the middle on all the issues."
She said there are people surrounding the president urging him to lighten his tone on illegal immigration, so he's not accused of "lacking in compassion."
She had a message for the president: "Remember how you won the presidency."
"You won the presidency by defying all these conventional wisdom-mongers and the usual suspects who are doing the bidding of big business, Silicon Valley and all these other interest groups," Ingraham said. "You won by standing for the forgotten man."
"Remember who elected you."
