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.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
