With the recent termination of the DACA program, protesters, “dreamers,” illegal aliens and sympathizers have been making their voices heard loud but not clear.
DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) is the unconstitutional dictate former president Barack Hussein Obama imposed after stating publicly that he doesn’t have the constitutional authority to do what he ended up doing anyway. DACA basically says that those who came here as children, with their parents or another guardian, for example, and through no fault of their own, need not fear being deported, after all they are here “through no fault of their own.” What never seems to be acknowledged, however, is that their parents came here illegally, through EVERY fault of their own and rightly should be deported.
It’s a deceptive trick they played and continue to play on America by sneaking over with their children, creating a situation that makes government appear to be breaking up families should it do the right thing and deport the law breakers. Actually those who break the law are responsible for breaking up their own families when they make the conscious decision to cross the border into the US.
Proponents of illegal immigration spew the same talking points and try to make the point that “undocumented immigrants,” DACA recipients or otherwise, whether or not they’ve been here five years of 35 years, no matter how they got here, deserve to be here and need to be given rights, benefits and anything else not privy to the average US citizen, since they’re paying taxes and contributing to the economy. That point is totally moot since illegal aliens are not supposed to be here in the first place. Paying taxes and contributing to the economy is not a pass for being here illegally. Americans are paying and contributing most to the economy anyway, not illegal immigrants. Their contribution is very minimal especially considering much of what is earned is sent back to family members still in their home countries.
Those in support of DACA must not understand how government policy works. Or possibly they ignore facts and rely on the opinions of their friends and untrustworthy reporters and journalists. Too many people don’t understand the importance of having a secure border and a sound immigration policy. We don’t close our borders to keep any certain type of people out and it’s bigoted to suggest that. Every country must protect its borders and carefully vet anyone who enters. America is no different. We have a right to be a sovereign nation and expect the rule of law to be followed.
