There is a lot to unpack about the Trump era, and there are a lot of reasons for that.
But here’s a little bit about the current president’s first six months.
The President’s first month in office was the worst in a generation, with a sharp downturn in manufacturing, the largest unemployment rate since the Great Depression, a record spike in violent crime and a steep drop in the national debt.
That’s a good start, but there’s still plenty to be done.
A look at the administration’s priorities and accomplishments over the last month: January 6: Executive order on immigration, which rescinded Obama-era protections for the so-called DREAMers, including an executive order that allows undocumented immigrants to apply for a work permit in the U.S. but limits their ability to access federal benefits for at least five years.
The order also ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that was launched in 2016 under President Barack Obama.
The Trump administration is still in the process of writing the order, and many details are still being worked out, but the executive order does have some important implications.
The executive order, which is slated to be signed in the coming days, provides the president the power to suspend immigration and deport up to 5 million undocumented immigrants.
The president also issued a second executive order this week to temporarily suspend immigration from countries with significant terrorist networks, including Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia and Syria.
The administration is also reportedly considering expanding the use of the Defeated ISIS border security program to include additional countries, like Haiti, that the Trump team thinks could be more secure.
The second executive action, which was scheduled to be issued on January 9, does not address the DACA program.
The third executive order on January 16 will also be delayed until February.
This is an important move for the Trump presidency, given the White House’s attempts to use DACA to undermine the legislative authority that Congress passed last year to stop the program.
President Trump signed an executive action to temporarily halt the Defending Deferred Actions for Childhood Alumni (DACIA) program, which gives DREAMer immigrants work authorization and the ability to apply to receive a work visa.
(The Washington Post) The fourth executive order will also not affect the DACA DACA program, although the White Court issued a preliminary injunction on January 17 halting the implementation of the program for five years and temporarily suspending its operation until the court rules.
The fifth executive order allows states to sue the federal government for damages related to the DACA order.
It also provides the government with more flexibility to enforce immigration laws.
The sixth executive order also suspends the Defended Immigrant Visa Program, which allows undocumented immigrant parents of U.K. citizens or permanent residents to bring their children to the U, and temporarily limits the ability of U
