In a new lawsuit, a group of venture capitalists says the Trump administration erred by delaying a program meant to help entrepreneurs from other countries start businesses in the United States.

President Trump’s announcement that he would end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, pending further action from Congress, has once again pushed immigration into the political debate. That debate —whether it is about undocumented immigrants or about the 800,000 “dreamers” who have taken advantage of DACA — largely focuses on the lives and experiences of Latinos.
Far less discussed are the lives and attitudes of black immigrants.

President Trump may have hoped to increase pressure on congressional Democrats to accept other hardline elements of his immigration agenda this week by rescinding the program that has protected from deportation about 800,000 “Dreamers,” young people brought to the country illegally by their parents.

From the outset, the rearguard movement that is Trumpism has been honest, at least, about its intentions to deliver the United States back to an earlier era in its history.

They imagined him capable of the fabled …
