Punish Americans for Their Heritage, but Reward ‘Dreamers’: How DACA Outrage Exposes the Left

By now it is crystal clear: the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was simply a way for President Obama to force his successor to make an unpopular decision.

For all the pejorative “populist” talk about President Trump, his predecessor could not countenance something he regarded as unpopular, especially to his base, and a potential future base of the Democrat Party.

    The Mexican who killed Jamiel Shaw Jr. never should have been released onto Los Angeles streets. He is a psycho-violent gang enforcer who should have been deported ASAP.

      Everything you said is true, and his illegal alien family should have been deported as well.
      However, it looks like Jamiel Shaw Jr. was an active gang member as well.

    How about this Cher can take 50 MS-13 members into her house and then we wait a few weeks to see what her new opinion is.

      If it’s her new home on Jupiter so much the better.

    I thought Trump campaigned against DACA? It seems now his only objection is how Obama implemented it. He wants congress to pass DACA so “everyone will be happy”. I don’t think many in his base will be fooled by this reversal.

        She’s playing her role.
        Trumps playing his.

    The easiest way out, is simply to put out a EO that states: “The Government of these United States will apply the law as written”. that would take care of DACA, Obamacare, etc.

      Yes, but it isn’t being done, and what is worse is that it does not look like it will be done.

  • Why do legal claimants for citizenship or residence have to jump through hoops but not illegal migrants?

    Is Zuckerberg paying illegal migrants the same wages as legal workers?

      As too your question, you’re joking right?

      • I would like to know.

        I suspect that he pays/paid them less than what they would be worth had they been white Americans, confirming my belief that Mexicans et al are used as cheap labour.
