DACA is socialism, not compassion

Published

on

Another word for DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) is amnesty. From a legal standpoint, it’s basically no different than if I successfully robbed a bank when I was 17-years old, and the government told me that’s okay now that I’m 25–and that I can probably keep the money.

If President Obama in 2012 had said the DOJ won’t prosecute bank robberies committed while the perpetrators were under 21, pending Congress making a law giving full amnesty to those who committed the crimes, there would have been massive outrage. The rule of law, civil society, etc., the arguments would have gone, has been consigned to the rubbish bin.

Then again, banks are federally insured. No individual person loses their money when a bank is robbed. And why should an 18-year old spend years in federal prison when that bank robbery money could be used for so many good things? It’s consumer spending.

Of course, nobody would buy those arguments, because they’re stupid. Amnesty for bank robbers would only spur more bank robberies.

DACA is no different. Once Central American families heard that America will give them a permiso if they can get across the border into the United States–which is paradise to them–they would do whatever is necessary to rob that bank. About 800,000 of them have successfully made it in and applied for DACA protections. We don’t have good numbers on how many tried and failed.

Or how many were pressed into virtual slavery my Mexican gangs. Or how many young women were raped by criminals and sold into human sex trafficking. Or how many were killed. These things happened outside American borders, so we don’t really know. But as sure as bank robbery amnesty would cause a rush on bank robberies, we know that DACA caused those things to increase.

DACA was President Obama’s end-run around Congress to a socialist solution to immigration reform. It was not compassion that drove him. It was the belief that anyone who wanted to reside in America deserved the chance to do so.

America already gives potential immigrants a chance–it’s call “immigration law.” Congress alone has the power to regulate immigration. For 28 years, they haven’t done a thing, with full knowledge that our porous southern border was a conduit for drugs, gangs like MS13, and a humanitarian disaster for potential immigrants.

What’s the cost of amnesty for 800,000 immigrants? The same as the cost for bank robbers. The FDIC covers deposits lost from bank robberies. And unless your specific job was taken by an illegal alien, you don’t really feel the cost of 800,000 illegals living in America.

But we should end DACA because of the principle. Setting aside the fact that DACA is illegal, it should end because it’s socialist–putting the burden of ownership of the means of production, namely the labor force of millions of illegals–into the hands of the State, using government money. It’s not compassionate, because it creates an incentive for people to risk their lives to enter our country.

Today is Labor Day. It is a day where the government honors the “American labor movement,” set apart from the government. In socialist countries, there’s no such holiday, as the government speaks for labor. DACA and amnesty for illegal aliens is a huge step for our government towards socialism. We must end it.

    And we should not hesitate to remove them.

      Ending DACA while leaving the illegals here makes a mockery of our law and sovereignty. Absolutely, when DACA is gone, we must implement a humanitarian plan to deport the illegals. Of course, federal courts will then find a right for Martians to live in Seattle.

Nancy Pelosi blames misogyny for Democrats opposing her as Speaker

Nancy Pelosi blames misogyny for Democrats opposing her as Speaker

Nancy Pelosi believes she’ll be Speaker of the House again. Her caucus controls the vote. She was Speaker before. Most Democrats support her. Most.

A vocal group of 17 (and counting) Democrats in Congress have declared they will not support her for Speaker of the House. Though no official challenge has stepped up, there are speculations that a younger, more progressive Democrat will emerge. Given the state of the party and the shift to the left, it’s very possible her path to the gavel will be bumpy.

Predictably, Pelosi is blaming her challenges on misogyny. It’s the patriarchy WITHIN the Democratic Party that is allegedly keeping her down. Because, well, of course that’s the reason. It’s always the reason.

The best thing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has ever said

The freshman congressional sensation from New York, Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has made some pretty awful remarks about the economy. She was so proud of answering, “You just pay for it,” when asked how to pay for the $32 trillion price tag on her proposed healthcare plan that she posted it on social media.

For someone with a degree in economics, her ideas seem to be fueled by something other than economic logic. That didn’t stop her from making a short but incredible statement about the economy.

“I don’t think most of Congress understands how economics works.”

I agree. I also think her presence in Congress isn’t going to raise the level of economic understanding any time soon. Welcome to Washington DC, Congresswoman!

Israel appoints first Christian ambassador

Most appointed bureaucrats and representatives in Israel are Jewish. Cultural diversity has been on the rise in the Jewish state and is starting to be reflected in government as they appointed their first Christian Arab ambassador.

George Deek will soon be Israel’s ambassador to Azerbaijan. It is an important relationship for Israel as the Muslim majority nation is one of Israel’s largest arms markets. They also supply about 40% of Israel’s oil.

“We are proud of his appointment, which perfectly symbolizes the integration of Israelis from different backgrounds in the representation of the state,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon.

Deek is currently a senior adviser to Director-General Yuval Rotem. His diplomatic experience is wide with stints serving the ministry in Norway and Nigeria.
