EBONI WILLIAMS (CO-HOST): A very big week for President Trump, kicking off with a controversial bang. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announcing today that the Trump administration is ending the DACA program, which protects undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children from deportation. The decision is creating a political firestorm in Washington and beyond.
BRIAN KILMEADE (GUEST HOST): Hey John, it was hard to not see Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) together, both critics at different times of President Trump, say "Hey, now we've got to work together to get something done, now it's on us to do this." Constitutionally, we know that Senator Lindsey Graham is a lawyer, so it's really on Congress.
These protests, and this outrage, and these statements are really missing the point. He didn't kill the program. He told Congress to make a decision.
JOHN ROBERTS: Yeah, and a lot of people say -- and some members of Congress who support DACA say that the president really had no choice here, that it really was executive overreach.
