sessions because he was too scared to do it himself. we also have house speaker paul ryan's statement on daca. yesterday also tweeting was the senate minority leader chuck schumer who said that hard-working dreamers and their contributions are vital to our economy. business will be hurt if this order stands. mitch mcconnell putting out a statement yesterday about the decision. in part saying that president obama wrongly believed he had the authority to rewrite our immigration law. president trump has corrected that fundamental mistake.
7:31 am
this congresswoman shall make sure we have a lawful policy on immigration that works. our next caller on the line from baltimore, maryland. go-ahead. caller: i think president trump is doing a fine job. his job as the executive is to enforce laws. i think he is doing the right congress tocing become bipartisan on a worthy issue. if they can show they will work together on this issue, and maybe they can solve our other big issues in a bipartisan way. so, if they find a legislative solution, is that something you would support? for thesewould children who have gone through this. like another caller said earlier, the parents are the one who caused the problem and not the children. makes the loss -- the laws.
7:32 am
host: our next caller on the line from nebraska. caller: hello. jeff sessions said that rescinding daca was because of rule of law. piggybacking off of your last caller, they speak about rule of law that it never even enters the conversation that it is against the law to higher undocumented workers. they never go after these people who lure immigrants over here and then higher than illegally -- then hire them illegally. it never comes up in the conversation. we just go after the victims every time. host: how should the businesses be punished? caller: i am saying they should be prosecuted. that is the law. when reagan came in, that is
7:33 am
when they stop prosecuting them. people used to be prosecuted for hiring undocumented workers. the color brings up the attorney general to make the announcement yesterday. the full announcement is available on c-span. generalthe attorney from yesterday. a.g. sessions: all immigration policy should serve the interests of the people of the united states. lawful immigrants and canadian born alike. congress should carefully and thoughtfully reform the type of immigration laws which are right for the american people. leadershave government who need to fulfill their promises and advance an
7:34 am
immigration policy which serves the national interest. we are people of compassion and but there is nothing compassionate about the failure to enforce immigration laws. it protects communities and taxpayers, and it prevents human suffering. failure to enforce the laws in the past have caused crime, violence, and terrorism. the compassionate thing to do is to end the lawlessness and enforce our laws. if congress refuses to make --nges to the law, that is what the president has promised to do, and he has delivered it to the american people. under president trump's leadership, this administration has made great progress in the last few months towards
7:35 am
establishing a lawful and constitutional immigration system which makes us safer and more secure. host: bill from connecticut. go ahead. caller: thank you. trump.rt this action by i disagree with him on a lot of issues like the environment, but what is happening here that they do not talk about in corporate media is that this is just like the grapes of wrath by steinbeck. fromencourage people oklahoma to come over and pick grapes for dollars. then, people end up owing their soul to the company store. -- years ago, they would sponsor someone to come over to this country.
7:36 am
if these people fail to support have toen the taxpayers pay. have one little thing to say -- ont: bill, before you go should you said you support the president on this -- bill, before you go on, you said you support the decision on this. why? caller: because who helps the american people? we have two major hurricanes? who has helped us out? host: our next caller on the line from new jersey. caller: it is all coming from the same thing, a racist thing. he can say he is not racist, but the majority of callers who call in supporting it are racist. they do not say it, but they
7:37 am
are. the first lady is an immigrant, that she need to pack her bags immigrant, so is she also supposed to pack her bags and leave? that she is in that spot, they are not going to check hurt anymore. racist. she should be saying something to him about what is going on, because she came here the same way. host: the miami herald this morning in their editorial taking a look at the decision saying that the dreamers cannot become pawns for the president's
7:38 am
goal of building a wall. the unholy proposal offers a framework to start negotiating a more powerful agreement, enhancing border security perhaps. it is a starting point. another note -- another republicansying, bristled over -- daca because they saw was an program as an overreach of presidential authority. so now let's see the republican led congress fix the problem by passing a bill. from south carolina. go ahead. caller: hello. host: linda, you're going to
7:39 am
have to keep going. caller: hello. on this. the president host: linda, we are going to put you on hold for a second. if you would not mind, please turn down your television, and then we will come back to you. dominic in new york on the oppose line. go ahead. caller: the congress and the senate do not give the president anything. they voted against him no matter what. obamacare, nothing. we have a chance now. he has to get something out of this deal. it is ridiculous how everything goes against him like chuck schumer or nancy pelosi. they will not give him anything. he has a chance now. let's work a deal. if you want daca, then we want
7:40 am
the wall. host: you are ok with that exchange happening? caller: of course i am. these kids have done nothing wrong. some of them were brought over here as babies while their mothers were pregnant. i'm just saying let's get something out of this deal. let's get the wall. host: next caller on the support line. go ahead. caller: hello. i support trump in almost everything he does. program, i think we need to back off on how many future mexicans enter the country, but the ones that are here now and consider americans -- i understand that a lot of paperworkfilled out
7:41 am
for services and stuff. that a special passport says their paper work is still in the works, and they are ahead of anyone else who wants to come in from other countries. i do not think their parents should be given the same privilege, because it is common knowledge that they came here illegally no matter what. faultnot the children's who are here. , how areng in tampa you situated as far as the hurricane headed to your state? caller: i am comfortable with it a little bit. been filled up. the lines have been very, very
7:42 am
long. i hear there will be some more supplies at walmart today, so i will be going over there for some more bottled water. host: how is governor scott doing as far as preparing people in the state? upyou see fema being called for any of that evidence in tampa? i am glad he is ahead of the job. with all the knowledge we have now about satellites and everything about the size and direction of the hurricanes, then they can forecast based on what they see the hurricanes do and everything. , there are history areas that if the hurricane moves in that direction some people already know if they are going to get flooded or not.
7:43 am
the street where i live on has never gotten flooded during any hurricanes. aunt'sreets away on my street, she has had it, up just about her doorway. so, her house is a little bit lower than ours, and it has always had a little bit more problems. have familynow -- i in austin, texas who are supporting the cleanup in houston, because her husband is from houston. overow what is going on there, and we do not want to see it happening here. host: the house will take up legislation today for an initial payment of about a billion dollars for eight in victim --
7:44 am
initialtims -- an payment of about $1 billion for victims in houston. that a debtxpected ceiling rates will be included in that decision. president trump will later be talking this week about tax reform. you can watch all of that on our website, www.c-span.org. our next caller from that effort, texas on the opposed line -- from bedford, texas on the opposed line. caller: i would like to apologize first to all the listeners for being a republican. this is just trump being trumped mp being trump again.
7:45 am
this makes no is this sense. tois going to cost us money deport these people, and the people you are deporting our taxpayers. they are here violating the constitution they say, but slavery is to be constitutional. leader ands to be a talk to the congress and set clear immigration policy. that does not mean taking out people who are trying to be a contribution to this country. there was a statement put out yesterday by a former member of president trump's business council. they are taking a look at the decision and talking about the economic aspects of it. they say that resending -- rescinding the permits for these working people is going to cost
7:46 am
us twitter $80 billion of lost economic growth over the next decade according to a recent institute.he cato these working people is going to cost us around $280 billion of lost economic growth over the next decade according to a recent study by the cato institute. our next caller on the line. hello. caller: i think what a lot of people are saying is just false. immigrants are coming to the united states, because they are trying to get away from situations which are dire. we talk about how much we are compassionate and what is going on in texas and in florida, because we like to feel good about ourselves. we are out here serving in taking care of one another. the problem is -- if you are not
7:47 am
white, if you are brown or black, then you are not one of us. we do not want to take care of you. you are subhuman. you do not have any needs. that is what is wrong with this. we are not compassionate. we are a hateful, racist country. one day, we will look back at this time with this president, and we will have a lot of explaining to do to our grandchildren. it is wrong. it is wrong. host: the president putting out a tweet yesterday after the and on thet was made reactions to it. the president now saying that congress has six months to legalize daca which is something that the obama administration was unable to do. if they cannot, i will revisit the issue. mexico saying that they will receive dreamers returning to
7:48 am
our country with open arms. the agencies of the federal government are strengthening their efforts to offer them the greatest support to fully integrate them into their society and national economy. mexico is saying they will find -- make a special job bank for dreamers to find jobs that come -- jobs back home. our next caller on the line from oklahoma in support of the decision from yesterday. go ahead. caller: hello. i am calling to support president trump's decision to do that. what most people seem to be forgetting is that president obama was the one who used an , soutive order to pass daca president trump inherited that from him.
7:49 am
it was not legislation. it byent obama signed executive order, so president trump is just following the law. i'm astounded by the number of people who are just not getting that. this is not lawful. it never was lawful. he is correcting that, and he is giving congress six months to address the issue. these people who apparently have their waivers, before their waivers can expire. i do not see anyone getting hurt at the moment. we seem to be focused on helping people. we should, but at what cost? if we just open the gates up, and we just let everybody come consequence, then what have we established?
7:50 am
we don't have control of our gates or borders. host: for those who are here program, youa would be ok with a legislative fix that allows them to stay. caller: if it is lawful, then i am ok with it. right now, it is not lawful. host: and is up next from kentucky. go ahead. caller: i just want to say that i am completely and totally appalled by these people calling in and saying that we are a racist nation and that everyone who agrees with president trump is a racist. i am highly offended by that. i am not a racist, but i do support president trump. we elected a black man to be president for two terms. yet, we are a racist country. with that being said, just like the man before me, we are a nation of laws. if we cannot live by the laws,
7:51 am
then what type of country are we? as far as not having compassion, we did not do this to these so-called dreamers. the people who put them in this position where their parents -- position were their parents. they need to look at their parents and asked why they did this to them. president trump did not do this to them. their parents put them in this position by breaking the law and bringing them over here. they knew what they were doing was wrong. i know the ones who were born here are not in the same category, but this is something that was schemed by the parents. they brought this on the children themselves. today ins is from usa the business section taking a look at the daca decision. it is about what silicon valley
7:52 am
is saying about this decision. pledgedd microsoft have to shield daca employees who could face deportation. brad smithresident urged congress to move swiftly with legislation to preserve the immigration program and even prioritize daca over tax reform. this reflects the toughening stance from silicon valley towards president trump's p olicies. linda is up next from st. louis on the opposed my. caller: yes, i do oppose. this president needs to take more time with his decision and think about what he is doing to people.
7:53 am
yes, this is a racist nation. you have to be anything other than white to realize how racist we are. if you walk in a black person's shoes or any other brown person's shoes, to realize that we are racist. it is just ridiculous. by thery embarrassed things going through this white house. this is a white house that was built on the back of slaves, and they say they are not racist. everything about this is racist. saying you voted for a black president, we have had 44 white presidents and one black president. do not say that we are not racist. we are racist. thank you. host: our next caller from new york. caller: what president trump did
7:54 am
is put fire to the congress to pass the right law. that is basically all we did. people are protesting, but they should now be pressuring their congress and senators to pass daca. was struck down by the fifth court -- the fifth circuit court of appeals two years ago. i do not see what the big deal is. instead of protesting trump, now is the time to put the fire to your congressman and senators. host: what would you advise your congressperson to do? caller: pass it. pass it. with the right way. pass it, but do it the right way. host: our next caller on the
7:55 am
opposed line. caller: thank you for letting me speak. i would love to see our country grant amnesty to the daca people. as i understand it, they paid a fee -- sorry, i cannot hear you. host: go ahead. an immigrant from germany. what i find incredible is that president trump's pallbearers are also german. ashamed.re very maybe, let's find enough sponsors. i too was sponsored at one time, and i ended up with my own business. we worked so hard, because we love this country so much. ng city on thehini
7:56 am
