There are many different sides that need to be looked at in relation to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and questions that must be answered. One question that has not been answered is: why are the beneficiaries of DACA called “Dreamers” by the media and progressive socialists pushing it forward?
Could it be that the name was given to these illegal immigrants by Obama to tie them to the Dream Act? As mentioned in part one of my series, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) have already declared that there would be another Dream Act tied to any negotiations which is something that no reasonable citizen or politician should stand for.
DACA is a travesty of the American rule of law. While the progressive socialists and the mainstream media (yes, I repeat myself) will tell heartrending stories of these poor children who will be ripped from their adoring parents’ arms and sent at gunpoint back to a country they do not know is to tear at the heartstrings of low information voters.
What is not mentioned is that the parents of these children knowingly broke the law, and did nothing to protect the children that they brought with them. What happens if someone cannot buy groceries to keep their family fed, or pay the rent to keep a roof over their head? Why is it America’s fault that these parents snuck them into this country?
These children, although through no fault of their own, are illegal immigrants, and if the parents are to leave the country, why should they not go with them? And these children? It should be remembered that DACA is available only to those between the ages of 15 to 32. There is no way that they can be considered children.
Putting age aside, the standards for DACA are low by any standard. There have been individuals approved for the program who have been convicted of criminal activity that found their way into the country through DACA without ever being interviewed or verified. More than 92 percent of applicants were approved through DACA with a rejection rate of a little less than 8 percent.
Once approved, DACA recipients receive a temporary employment card and can receive a Social Security card to report wages and pay taxes. Because of the DACA amnesty that former President Barack Obama declared back in 2012, anther 400,000 people forced themselves north and into our country over the next four years of his disastrous reign.
Another argument currently being made by DACA supporters is that these illegals are doing jobs that Americans simply won’t do. First, illegal aliens depress wages so that Americans can’t afford to take those jobs. Construction is a field that has been inundated by illegals working for a third of what Americans used to be paid. The ability of get a GED or high school diploma has helped illegal aliens take jobs that have historically been filled by the country’s youth.
Not all DACA recipients are wonderful little children, despite progressive socialist propaganda. From 2013 to 2017 a total of 2,139 of these darlings have lost the amnesty benefits of DACA for “criminality or gang related activities.” We should not expect these illegal immigrants to follow the law when the executive order that brought them here was a program that blatantly violates the law of our country.
Obama passed DACA unconstitutionally without the approval of Congress, and neither side has spent any time in attempting to reach a consensus of immigration reform. It was a deliberate attempt to achieve what the Congress refused to do on many occasions. Leaving the challenge to the Democrats and leaving the field of battle will ensure that a comprehensive amnesty being pushed by the progressive socialists and RINOS like Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) will continue to move forward against the wishes of the American people.
The progressives socialists I frequently mention are assisted by anti-American billionaire George Soros and groups like LA Raza to flaunt the laws of the country. They continue to foment violence in the name of demands that illegal immigrants think they are owed. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) has already stated that there will be violence up to and including “in the streets.” I look forward to the street violence, personally. I recommend for ICE to be sent to find every illegal in the streets and place them on a bus and send them back to Mexico.
The American people have been promised immigration simplification and laws to protect the border against threats for thirty years. We were promised with the amnesty that President Ronald Reagan signed during his time in the oval office that this would not happen again. Promises are always made with heartfelt devotion to the rule of law, and then ignored after the elections. The current Attorney General, Jeff Sessions has a clear view of the challenges of DACA, and can hopefully fix the status quo regarding immigration.
“The idea of national sovereign borders is being daily eviscerated by Obamas determination to write his own immigration rules in defiance of Congress and the American people,” Sessions said, back when he was a U.S. Senator and one of Obama’s most dogged critics on immigration and other national security issues.
I began by questioning why those enrollees in DACA are called “Dreamers.” This is because the Dream Act that failed so miserably in the Congress is what the violence and shouting is about. They want the Dream Act and believe it is the perfect time to force it on the American people.
The Congress has the authority to do that, but comprehensive immigration reform is a non-starter. It is a good talking point for the progressive socialists out there to whine about dreamers, but Americans are waking up to their scam. They know more mass immigration, like has happened over the past many decades, will only make America weaker and less cohesive as a nation moving forward.
