The Trump administration shocked the conscience of America yesterday with a plan that threatens to deport 800,000 young immigrants brought to the US as undocumented children. More than 200,000 of them live here in California. Many commentators and advocates have pointed out the self-defeating nature of this malignant decision to exile friends, neighbors, and children who know no other country and who were brought to the US by the adults caring for them. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) decision was announced at the Department of Justice, but it is anything but just and does nothing to make our homeland more secure. On the contrary, this action amounts to willful intimidation and psychological abuse of these young people and their families.
