Vicente Fox slams Trump on 'cruel and heartless' DACA decision

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox is speaking out strongly against President Trump for his decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

".@realDonaldTrump cancelled the future of 800,000 kids who are the cornerstone of America and didn't even had the balls to say it himself," Fox tweeted Tuesday.

The Trump administration said earlier Tuesday it was ending the Obama-era program, which allows young people who came to the country illegally as children to live here free from fear of deportation.

In a video attached to his tweet, Fox said Trump has "failed America" with his decision on DACA.


"It is the worst action you have ever done against the ones that cannot defend themselves," Fox said in the video.

"This measure is cruel and heartless."

Fox said the future of any country "is the minorities which will be majorities in a few years."

"You cannot stop the change, the progress, the future of that great nation," he said.

"I hope your grandsons never be in this terrible situation."

Trump on Tuesday tweeted that he looks forward to working with Democratic and Republican lawmakers to "address immigration reform."

"Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do)," Trump tweeted Tuesday night. "If they can't, I will revisit this issue!"
