Chelsea issues a public apology on her Netflix show on behalf of Trump’s administration and their decision to end DACA, putting 800,000 Dreamers at risk of being deported.
“We’re sorry for making it clear that white supremacists and Nazis are welcome in this country while young, hardworking immigrants brought here as children are not,” Handler said to the camera. “These young people are the American dream.”
Pointing out that 99 percent of DREAMers have “no criminal record,” Handler said, “That means they’ve never obstructed justice, colluded with Russia, defrauded people through a fake university, funnelled millions of taxpayer dollars into their businesses, falsely accused people of wiretapping them, carelessly talked to a Korean dictator with nuclear weapons, bragged about sexual assault or pardoned a racist maniac.”
While not all of those things are technically illegal, they are all more dangerous to this country than anything the DACA recipients are even capable of, Handler said.
“It doesn’t matter what a president who has had everything handed to him on a piss-gold platter thinks about them,” she added, “because we’re going to stand up and defend their right to be here.”
