MONROE, Ga. (AP) -- Anthony Pham immigrated to the United States in 1982 from Vietnam and became a citizen five years later, after President Ronald Reagan signed an immigration law that sped the legalization process for millions of new Americans.

Now a business owner and proud Republican in Georgia's staunchly conservative 10th Congressional District, Pham says he supports maintaining legal status for young immigrants living in the United States illegally who were brought to the country as children.

"When they come here as children, they can become American citizens if they are good, not bad people," Pham says of the 800,000 or so immigrants affected by President Donald Trump's decision to phase out the Deferred Action for Children Program (DACA) put in place during the Obama administration.

Trump says he's giving Congress six months to end the limbo status for these young immigrants. Yet Pham says that what Congress does - or doesn't do - won't change his support for the president or his congressman, outspoken conservative Jody Hice.

I applaud his speaking out, but I suspect he voted for Trump.  What did he expect?

Apparently so; Trump told voters what he would do.  I suppose the voter mentioned didn't believe him.

Actually, Trump said many conflicting things. By the time the convention rolled around, he was making promises to LGBT and DACA kids and told them not to worry.

He obviously lied, and I never trusted what he said.  However, many Americans did.

I suppose so; I had no illusions about Trump and his anti-immigrant agenda.
