Sean Hannity of Fox News sparred with Mexican-American journalist and author Jorge Ramos on Tuesday evening over President Trump's decision to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Created through an executive order in 2012, DACA provides a level of amnesty to certain illegal immigrants who came to the country as minors. 
"We can't take care of the world's children," Hannity said. "You have a warm heart. I admire that. ... I only want the best for people and I'd like other countries to now step up and do their job."

"We are a nation of laws and we have a Constitution and we have co-equal branches of government,” Hannity went on to say. 

Ramos, a Univision anchor for more than a decade, noted that the so-called "Dreamers" were brought into the country illegally, but they should not be held responsible for the parents’ actions in bringing them into the country. .“Who’s going to take care of them?” he asked. “Someone has to take care of them, and it is our responsibility to do that.” Ramos went on to argue that Trump’s decision to terminate DACA was "cruel" and "cold-hearted." In this, Ramos was echoed by Barack Obama, who instituted DACA.

Hannity shot back, “You cannot ask that the United States burn its Constitution, stomp all over it in the process of doing what you want." He added, "We can’t burn the Constitution just to do what Jorge Ramos wants!”
