Ronald Reagan would “not kick the dreamers out of the US” if he were president today, according to his eldest son.
“He would find a way to work with Congress and lead,” over the next six months.
The 40th president’s only adopted child appears to support the idea of putting Congress on the hot seat and letting them make the decision about what to do with the 800,000 illegal immigrants — referred to as “dreamers” — who are currently protected by the Obama-era program.
“Congress never voted on DACA. At least Trump wants to allow Congress a say which Obama did not!” Reagan tweeted. “Immigration issues belong with the Congress not with POTUS…POTUS needs to lead and Congress needs to act.”

The 72-year-old went on to blast Democrats for not getting things done in the past — saying, “Republicans attacked Dems since 2008 for not fixing immigration when they controlled Washington.”
“U might recall when the Dems were in control of all 3 branches of Govt they did nothing about Immigration reform,” Reagan added. “Trump put the ball in the right court. The Congress.The Republicans control all 3 branches now deal with it or go home.”
