To the Editor:

Donald Trump has announced that the DACA program is now dead. That is because the Congress has thus far failed to provide him with sufficient funds to build his wall. What in the world does one thing have to do with other? The DACA program is about roughly 8 million young people who have lived in this country since childhood, and have called

America their home. They are not a mass of individuals living outside our country, trying to break through barriers in order to get in.

Trump is heartless enough to hold these young people hostage just to further inflate his already super-inflated ego. This is not about politics. It is not about negotiations. It is not about compromise. It is just about a lack of humanity.
