Intolerance? A DREAMer wants Americans to pay for her dream, but that’s not how it works…

Published

on

A New Jersey college student, whose goal is to become a diplomat for her homeland of Costa Rica, and whose parents came here as illegal immigrants from Costa Rica when she was a young child, made an Election Day plea as a guest op-ed writer for citizens to vote for the just-elected Democratic Governor who has pledged to make the entire state a “sanctuary state.”

The Democrat Governor-Elect, Phil Murphy, was President Obama’s appointed Ambassador to Germany, and prior to that, had a successful career at Goldman Sachs.

The student, Sara Mora, claimed in her column to have been brought here at the age of three, but a different report earlier this year wrote she was brought in at age four. She raised a few hundred dollars in a GoFundMe campaign for her United Nations internship. Her goal?

“I hope to one day serve as a diplomat for my country, Costa Rica and through programs like this I will be able to expand my knowledge and be prepared to be a great leader.”

So how did those nasty, intolerant host Americans respond?

The comments section for her guest opinion column were universally negative. Highly negative. But hardly intolerant or racist. Read them yourself.

The culture of entitlement, where the term “rights” is conflated with the actual meaning of “entitlement” to public subsidies, benefits and other direct and indirect payments, might have hit its tipping point.

The comments don’t show intolerance towards foreigners.

They show a readership — or at least the subsection of readers motivated enough to respond — which is no longer tolerant of anyone else telling them they should subsidize the dreams of the “DREAMers” whose asserted dilemma is entirely that of their parents’ doing.

Perhaps the tipping point is upon us. It’s noteworthy that New Jersey is hardly a red-state, red-meat state; it’s one of the most liberal states in the nation, where Hillary beat President Trump 54-41% last November.

The true pro-immigrant stance is the position strongly opposing amnesty, or special treatment for DREAMers, or anyone else who “cut the line” while millions of visa applicants around the world play by the rules, apply by the rules and wait their turn. And wait. And wait.

A value system which preferences illegals, no matter the reason, over rule-following applicants denigrates every prior legal immigrant, every unsuccessful applicant and the very citizenship to which most of them aspire.

Respect for the law is respect for immigrants, of whom the vast majority waited and obeyed the rules.

The DREAMers have already benefited from their parents breaking the law. They are continuing to benefit every day since. No wonder they want the gravy train to continue.

However, more and more Americans see this demand for compassion as just another emotional shakedown. Worse, they see it as something they’re paying for, both today in the form of taxes to fund government largesse, and later, in the form of increased competition for jobs, housing and really everything else.

It is this visceral unfairness, couched under a rubric of virtue, which has appalled Americans for years and fueled the electoral success of a flawed man, flawed candidate and flawed Administration.

Until the value system underpinning American culture is rebalanced, the “we’ve had enough” sentiment will be more than enough to fuel electoral victories for Trumpism and its opportunistic passengers.

Daniel Horowitz on amnesty versus immigration reform

Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz has been outspoken in his opposition to amnesty for years. With the DACA “fix” coming, it’s clear that Congress is prioritizing helping DREAMers without lifting a finger to fix the legal immigration system or our illegal immigration problem.

“We have a national emergency with the courts and immigration, yet Congress will create an emergency for amnesty, not to fix immigration for Americans first.”

A case against amnesty in any form in DACA deal

A case against amnesty in any form in DACA deal

The short version of this Daily Signal video is: “Amnesty: Been there, done that, didn’t work, shouldn’t be in DACA, period.”

Of course, the video itself is less than four-and-a-half minutes long, so you might as well take a moment and listen to Genevieve Wood from the Heritage Foundation explain why there’s absolutely no reason to include any form of amnesty in the upcoming DACA bill.

Why Amnesty Should Not Be Part of Any ‘Deal’ on DACA

http://dailysignal.com/2017/11/19/amnesty-not-part-deal-daca/Apparently, the battles over tax reform, Obamacare, and the looming spending bill aren’t enough to keep Congress busy. There are increasing rumblings that some lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are looking for ways to give legal status to illegal aliens currently in the United States.

When President Donald Trump was candidate Trump, he promised that if elected he would end the program known as DACA—the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals that gave legal status to illegal aliens brought to the U.S. as minors.

As border patrol agent dies, President renews call for the wall

As border patrol agent dies President renews call for the wall

Update:

A new report goes into detail about how the two border patrol agents were attacked. If this report turns out to be accurate, the outcry to improve border security and build the wall should be swift and unambiguous.

REPORT: Illegal Aliens Brutally Murder Border Patrol Agent, Crushed His Skull With Rocks

http://www.dailywire.com/news/23773/report-illegal-aliens-brutally-murder-border-ryan-saavedra“What we know is that Border Patrol Agent Rogilio Martinez appears to have been ambushed by a group of illegal aliens whom he was tracking,” Judd said. “Our agents’ reports from the ground say that he was struck in the head multiple times with a rock or rocks.”

Another Border Patrol agent arrived on scene shortly after and was also reportedly ambushed by illegal aliens who attacked him with rocks.

“The other agent arrived on scene a short time later and was also ambushed and struck in the head with what is believed to have been a rock or rocks. These disgusting acts and complete disregard for human life need to stop immediately. Family members of slain Agent Martinez will never get to see him come home again all because we have failed to secure our borders from such criminals.”

There really is no spin on this that the open borders people can use. They can’t say we should have just made it easier for them to get here in the first place; how many Americans want free access to people capable of bashing someone’s head in with rocks? Gungrabbers call for gun control the moment someone is shot and killed. It’s time for border security proponents to use the same tactic. If ever there was a clear call for the wall, this is it.

Original Story:

Two border patrol agents were injured on duty in Culberson County, Texas. One, Rogelio Martinez, has died from his injuries. His partner is still in the hospital in serious condition.

No word on what caused the injuries they sustained while on patrol. They were responding to a call of activity 120 miles outside of El Paso.

President Trump took to Twitter to renew calls for the wall along the southern border.

As more information comes available, this story will be updated.
