A week ago, Democrats shut down the federal government for three days over their demand to protect DACA illegals. They have this warped sense of duty where they believe these illegal aliens are worth more than our military, our federal laws and our national security. They believe these illegals should somehow be rewarded for being in the United States illegally.
With threats of another government shut-down looming in less than two weeks President Donald Trump has decided to offer an olive branch that would provide protection and a path towards citizenship for not just the 700,000 DACA recipients but for 1.8 million DACA Dreamers.
Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), has proposed a different plan that would provide protection for just the 700,000 current DACA Dreamers, instead of 1.8 million as is being proposed by President Trump. However, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) – stated that illegals have no right to be here and have all violated our laws and as such, they deserve nothing in the form of protection, amnesty or citizenship and I whole-heartedly agree.
Democrats and many DACA Dreamers claim that they are all law-abiding citizens who were brought here as children by their parents or someone else and as such, it’s not their fault they are here illegally, after all they are such good people that they deserve something.
First of all, not all DACA Dreamers were brought here by their parents. Some were sent during the massive wave of un-accompanied minors that Obama allowed to flood into the US. It was estimated that over 100,000 un-accompanied illegal minors from South America and Central America (including Mexico) were welcomed into the US without any adults.
Secondly, those that were brought here by their parents years ago when they were young have remained in the US ILLEGALLY and have taken no action to apply for legal status other than applying for Obama’s DACA protection. They have grown up here, received free education here, received government assistance here, received free or discounted medical care here, all while being here illegally and now have the audacity to demand that they have rights.
Thirdly, a number of DACA Dreamers are anything but law-abiding people. Among them have been those who have victimized American citizens. They have robbed, invaded homes, beaten, sexually assaulted, raped and murdered American children, women and men. The worse part of it is that many of them have been protected here in the US by anti-American Democrats and their sanctuary cities, counties and state.
In the latest example of just how law-abiding some DACA Dreamers are, consider the following recent news report:
“On the eve of President Trump’s State of the Union address, San Diego’s Border Patrol has announced the arrest of two DACA recipients in connection with human smuggling…”
“One incident was about 8 a.m. Thursday, where Border Patrol agents arrested two undocumented immigrants and later saw two suspicious vehicles on Buckman Springs Road in the Campo area of East County, said the news release…”
“‘Agents questioned the driver, a 22-year-old male Mexican national, who admitted that he was performing scouting duties for a smuggling crew,’ said a Border Patrol statement. ‘He also admitted that he was coordinating with another driver of a vehicle to relay information related to Border Patrol operations in the area and the status of the Border Patrol checkpoint to aid in illegal smuggling’.”
“The Border Patrol said its agents learned that the driver was a DACA recipient and that he had ‘successfully participated in alien smuggling on multiple occasions’…”
The other incident was described:
“In a second incident, last Wednesday, agents received a citizen’s tip about a suspected smuggling incident near Torrey Pines State Beach.”
“The vehicle involved was tracked to the side of Interstate 5 near Dairy Mart Road near the border about 12:10 p.m., where agents conducted an immigration check.”
“Agents found three men inside the vehicle — the driver (a 20-year-old DACA recipient), his 22-year-old cousin who is a Mexican national illegally residing in the United States, and a 21-year-old Mexican national illegally in the country, said the agency.”
“‘Both the driver and his cousin admitted their involvement with human smuggling in the area,’ said the agency. ‘The driver, a beneficiary of DACA which has since expired, is currently being held in federal custody’.”
These are the people that Trump and others in Congress are preparing to offer legal protection and even a path to citizenship. Is this the type of people we want here in the US?
I’m compassionate about a lot of things, but NOT about illegal aliens that cost US taxpayers over $100 billion a year and who have no legal right or cause to be here in the US. If they want to stay in the US, then they must legally earn it by serving in the military for at least 4-6 years or becoming indentured to serve in some government works program for the same amount of years. Put them to work repairing roads, docks and bridges – America’s infrastructure and pay them minimum wage.
If they want to stay here, let them prove it by earning it. Otherwise, the only thing they deserve is a ticket back to their country of origin. Splitting up families by deportation does not pull on my heart strings as that is something the illegals should have thought of before coming to the US illegally and bringing their kids with them. When an American citizen commits a crime and is sent to prison, it breaks up that person’s family, so why should illegals who broke federal immigration laws be any different?
