We’ve all heard the sob stories of those “undocumented immigrants” (read illegal aliens) who are really good people and here because they want a better life, and only want to do jobs that Americans won’t do, and blah, blah, blah. In the dreamers’ case it turns out they want a whole lot more. Just ask House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
On Monday Pelosi tried to speak to a gathering of DACA dreamers. It was a huge security fail as the group managed to make its way onto the stage and surround Pelosi, interrupting her with ridiculous chants of “you lied” and other inane comments. It’s a mob mentality they have and they expect this tactic to somehow gain them favor? These are the “immigrants” Pelosi and her Democratic party have been going to bat for.
It’s not just a plea to the government to let them stay that’s annoying, it’s the flurry of demands to receive benefits, government assistance, instant citizenship, the right to vote and anything else they think they deserve. Their insidious demands would cost billions and billions of taxpayer dollars. What sane government would do such a foolish thing? Democrats are probably all for it and several Republicans seem willing to cave. Sensible conservatives are the ones who want fairness, justice and the rule of law to prevail.
For Democrats these DACA recipients and their families represent Democratic votes. You can be sure that if DACA recipients and their families were to vote for Republicans, Democrats would be fiercely against what they now are adamantly for.
On that note, here’s an idea. Let’s keep DACA in place and even allow the illegal parents to stay in this country provided that each person, DACA recipient and parents alike, count as one Republican vote in every election they would otherwise be able to vote in, for as long as they are here in America. Would Democrats and illegal alien sympathizers be happy with that? I think not.
If we just let the estimated 800,000 DACA dreamers stay, which is only the conservative number they give us in their talking points, what does that say to those real immigrants who waited in line, paid enormous fees and came here legally? It’s a huge slap in the face.
