Former DHS Chief Boasts Of Sabotaging Trump Admin's Bid to End DACA

"Donald Trump's former Homeland Security chief has revealed that she deliberately undermined the president's attempt to end protection for 'Dreamers' because it ran contrary to her own beliefs," The Daily Mail reports.

From The Daily Mail:
Elaine Duke, a lifelong Republican, served as the acting secretary from July 31, 2017 until December 6 of the same year.

[...] Duke, 62, told The New York Times in an interview published on Saturday about her reason for sabotaging the plan.

She explained that, in August 2017, she had been led into what she believed was a meeting to discuss DACA.

Instead, she said, it was 'an ambush', with the then-attorney general, Jeff Sessions, waiting for her besides Stephen Miller, Trump's hardline immigration specialist.

They demanded she sign a memo rescinding DACA.

She agreed, reluctantly - but in doing so watered it down to make it legally difficult to justify.
Trump has been shilling for a DACA amnesty or some "merit-based" immigration scheme to help Big Tech lately so it's not like anything is going to come of this but it's interesting nonetheless.

It reminds me of how former top White House economic adviser Gary Cohn boasted about stealing a draft of a letter to withdraw from a US-South Korea trade agreement off of Trump's desk.

Trump surrounded himself with traitors who hate him and yet the only person he's really hounded was Jeff Sessions, the one guy in his administration who actually implemented the agenda he ran on.
