Jimmy Kimmel mocked Donald Trump’s decision to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, known as DACA, on Tuesday’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Watch the full video below!

As Gossip Cop reported, president Trump decided to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals on Tuesday. The program, which was put in place by the Obama administration, grants work permits and protection from deportation to illegal immigrants who arrived in the United States as children. Nearly 800,000 immigrants, dubbed “DREAMers,” are currently enrolled in the DACA program. Of course, his controversial decision was met with anger, but for the talk show host, he chose to mock the president for dismantling the program.

“This morning, our president woke up and asked his staff, ‘Now that this hurricane is over, what’s something horrible I can do to distract people from the Russian investigation?’ Someone said, ‘You know, there are 800,000 kids you could deport for no good reason.’ [Trump] said, ‘Done and done,'” Kimmel joked during his opening monologue.

He went on, noting how Trump is seemingly working to reverse policies created by the Obama administration. “President Trump has decided to do away with what’s known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, DACA they call it. Mostly because president Obama was the one who ordered it. It seems like his main agenda is to undo everything Obama did. I hope he doesn’t bring Osama bin Laden back to life,” Kimmel told his audience.

The talk show host added, “It’s a surprise because just a few months ago, Trump said that those covered by DACA could ‘rest easy,’ and that’s when you know you’re in trouble. It’s like when Dracula tells you to relax and take off your scarf.” Watch the full video below, in which Kimmel also creates a fake ad where Trump’s kids, children of immigrants, plead not to be deported.
