No DACA is isolationist thinking!

Is it any clearer about Trump being a isolationist?
You need to note "No man is an island.
No one is self-sufficient; everyone relies on others."
This saying comes from a sermon by the seventeenth-century
English author John Donne.

But I need to note the obvious!
The quote on the statue of liberty!

"Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

It's not right to put fear into people when there is no real need.

Getting rid of DACA is really going to effect America
in the fact of the labor force needing them.
And the light of America going backward with everyone
pushing forward! You can't make America run like a small town,
it would have nothing like they have nothing! Xenophobia? Well yes!
Trump does seem to be catering to small town people.
Their way of thinking. Small is small for a reason!

I would note it's a time for a protest over all that is going on.
It's a time to go forward not backward.

~~~~~Ending DACA hits U.S. economy where it hurts
American employers say they are missing one key ingredient these days: Workers.
Finding qualified and available candidates is a major challenge for companies. Some have cut back on hiring as a result.

Many businesses -- from farmers to Facebook -- plug the gap with some of the 27 million foreign-born workers living in the United States.

President Trump's decision to repeal DACA, or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, risks the deportation of roughly 800,000 young adults who were born outside the United States but have lived in the country for a decade.

Experts say repealing DACA would worsen the shortage of workers in the United States.
"Getting rid of DACA reduces the number of skilled workers and a lot of industries are facing worker shortages," says Ike Brannon, a visiting fellow at the Cato Institute, a conservative research group. "To push this now is really an inopportune time."

~~~~Business leaders call on Trump to protect DACA
The CEOs of AT&T (T, Tech30), Best Buy (BBY) and Wells Fargo (CBEAX) are among the dozens of business leaders across the tech, retail and financial industries who have added their names to a letter defending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

FWD.us, an immigration advocacy organization, first posted the letter on Thursday with the backing of more than 300 business leaders. That number has now climbed above 400.

"Dreamers are vital to the future of our companies and our economy. With them, we grow and create jobs," the letter says. "They are part of why we will continue to have a global competitive advantage."

The original group of backers included the CEOs of Amazon (AMZN, Tech30), Apple (AAPL, Tech30), Microsoft (MSFT, Tech30), Facebook (FB, Tech30) and Alphabet (GOOGL, Tech30). Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is also a cofounder of FWD.us.

"250 of my Apple coworkers are #Dreamers. I stand with them," Apple CEO Tim Cook wrote in post on Twitter Sunday. "They deserve our respect as equals and a solution rooted in American values."

Trump is expected to end the program with a six-month delay to give Congress an opportunity to come up with a legislative solution.

It's just the latest clash between Trump and the business community.
Business leaders have condemned Trump's travel bans, the decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement and his recent remarks about white supremacists in Charlottesville.

Trump's two business councils fell apart after executives began resigning over his Charlottesville comments.
