Seth Meyers has been off the air for a couple weeks, and missed a lot of news, but he was quick to make up for it on Tuesday’s Late Night by digging into President Trump‘s recent decision on the ‘DREAMers’ act known as DACA.
“As his summer of near constant chaos ends, President Trump faces a series of challenges more difficult than any he has dealt with up to this point,” Meyers said. “So how has he responded? By threatening to deport hundreds of thousands of law-abiding Americans.”
Meyers explained that DACA protects the right of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the US as children. “Trump’s decision throws the lives of nearly 800,000 Americans who were brought here as children, and who work here and go to school here, into chaos.”
“He’s an asshole, but he’s our asshole,” explained Meyers. Watch the clip for more on Trump’s “cruel and capricious policy.”
