Senate Democrats are angrily reacting to news that President Donald Trump is planning to end DACA with a six-month delay.

“Ending DACA…[is] not leadership, President Trump–its disgraceful,” Sen. Patty Murray wrote of the decision.

Senator Ben Cardin asserted that Trump has no “legit reason” to end DACA, ignoring arguments from conservatives about rule of law and the potential unconstitutionality of the executive order.

Sen. Kamala Harris called the move “heartless.”

“This is an enormous moral and economic mistake,” Sen. Brian Schatz declared.

Sen. Bernie Sanders chimed in with some wild rhetoric, calling the move to end DACA “one of the ugliest and cruelest decisions ever made by a president in our modern history.”
