A Mexican native whose mother brought him to America at age 1 said President Trump has shown “leadership and compassion” toward DACA recipients like himself, while Democrats have conversely used them as “pawns.”
Hilario Yanez, who goes by Eli, said Trump showed courage to tackle the illegal immigration issue comprehensively during his first year in office.
