Former Attorney General Eric Holder urged President Donald Trump to keep former President Barack Obama’s amnesty for illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children.
“This Administration must do the right thing,” Holder wrote on Twitter. “Keep #DACA – a defining moment.”

He told Trump that he had a moral duty to uphold Obama’s controversial amnesty through executive action.
“Moral & logical promises were made to Dreamers,” Holder said. “They must be kept.”
Holder joins many former Obama aides who are demanding that Trump save the program that Obama implemented.
“Unspeakable harm to 800,000 people and to the country,” wrote Cecilia Muñoz, Obama’s director of the White House Domestic Policy Council on Twitter. “Who do they think benefits from this? Nobody. Tragic.”
