Meanwhile, President Trump doubled down on his decision to pardon notorious racist Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio during a news conference on Monday.
President Donald Trump: “Sheriff Joe is a patriot. Sheriff Joe loves our country. Sheriff Joe protected our borders. And Sheriff Joe was very unfairly treated by the Obama administration, especially right before an election, an election that he would have won. So—and he was elected many times, so I stand by my pardon of Sheriff Joe. And I think the people of Arizona who really know him best would agree with me.”
There are reports that the Trump administration could end the DACA program—that’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals—as early as today. DACA provides legal protections to live and work in the United States for 750,000 young immigrants. We’ll have more on DACA later in the broadcast.
