WEB DESK

TRUMP DONALDIndian-American lawmakers have criticised US President Donald Trump for scrapping an amnesty programme that granted work permits to immigrants who arrived in the country illegally as children. Describing Trump’s action as a cruel and inhuman, five-Indian American lawmakers in separate statements announced that they will fight the US president’s decision.

Democratic Senator, Kamala Harris said, the consequences of the decision will be devastating and it will split up families and cost US economy billions of dollars. Congresswoman, Pramila Jayapal said by doing so President Trump is destroying the future of nearly 800,000 young men and women who were brought here by their parents. She urged both Republican and Democratic lawmakers to immediately pass stand-alone legislation to protect ‘dreamers’.

Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi also slammed Trump’s decision, terming the move as cruel. He urged the Congress to pass legislation to extend Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme and protect ‘dreamers’. Congressman Dr Ami Bera said the decision by the Trump administration goes against American values. He urged the administration to reverse the decision immediately. Congressman Ro Khanna said the Trump administration has once again showed that it has no dignity for friends, neighbours and colleagues.
