Guess who’s ready to trade DACA amnesty for a border wall



Guess whos ready to trade DACA amnesty for a border wall

Join me, if you will, as we embark on a short journey six years into the past.

In January, 2013, America was introduced to the “Gang of Eight,” a group of four Democrats and four Republicans in the US Senate, brought together for a single purpose: creating a plan to grant amnesty and an eventual pathway to citizenship for millions of so-called DREAMers, aka illegal aliens.

Sure, the gang led by Lindsey Graham claimed they were working on immigration reform and border security. But as pro-amnesty gang member Marco Rubio said at the time, Congress needed to “address the reality” of illegal immigration.

Though the 2013 version was eventually disbanded, in 2016, Graham introduced the idea of putting the Gang of Eight Band back together.

“I’ll tell you what I’m going to do in 2017. I’m going to take the Gang of Eight bill out, dust it off, and ask anybody and everybody who wants to work with me to make it better to do so.”

While his plans were delayed until 2018, Graham succeeded in finding a few new faces to join the band, including Trump’s son-in-law and advisor, Jared Kushner. And it looks like this new band will be picking up right where the old band left off.

During a meeting with band members on Wednesday, Kushner — a Democrat who loves Obama’s DACA order — told Senators in attendance that Trump will sign any amnesty deal as long as it includes border security funding. Considering the fact that Trump is also a Democrat who loves DACA, I think we can conclude that such a deal is very likely to become a reality.

How likely?

When Trump issued his Rescind-In-Name-Only order reversing DACA in 2017, he structured it in a way that allowed the Obama-era law to stay in effect indefinitely, a fact verified at the time by a senior member of the White House staff.

One year ago, Trump called a proposed DACA fix supported by Jeb Bush a “bill of love” that he would willingly sign in exchange for a border wall … or as we now know, a reasonable facsimile thereof.

And just weeks before the Democrats took back the House in the midterms, Trump and Graham both stated that they would work with Democrats on a deal where DACA would be saved in exchange for wall funding . . . WITHOUT CONDITIONS . . . during the lame duck session.

Do you remember when Trump had this to say about repealing DACA and building a “big, beautiful wall?”

Good times. Good times.

AOC offers no solutions and ‘not one dime’ for DHS to fix ‘concentration camps’



AOC offers no solutions and not one dime for DHS to fix concentration camps

Let’s play a quick game of “read between the lines.”

Alexandria Ocasion-Cortez complained about migrant detention centers at the border being “concentration camps.” I disagree, but so be it. Let’s assume the detention centers are inhospitable and even inhumane based on the sheer mass of people coming across the border and filing asylum claims. One would think the solution would be to improve conditions by increasing funding so quality and quantity of housing at the centers across the border can be improved.

But that’s not what AOC wants to happen.

“Not one dime should go to DHS for building these camps as they detain children and families,” she Tweeted.

So, back to reading between the lines…

The current detention centers are insufficient to handle the influx of migrants.

But AOC and the party she now controls won’t vote to fund them at all, let alone giving them sufficient funds to handle the masses.

Therefore, AOC wants migrants to be immediately released into the interior of the United States once they receive their hearing date, which 90% won’t attend anyway.

As AOC takes control of her party, her “leadership” is to recommend not allowing migrants to be detained in “concentration camps” and no funding to improve them. She wants them released without restrictions.

Border lies: Democrats start spinning ‘manufactured crisis’ to mean something different



Border lies Democrats start spinning manufactured crisis to mean something different

The old talking point was to claim the growing emergency situation at the border was a “manufactured crisis.” Democrats across the board echoed those words for months before, during, and especially after the government shutdown that spread across last December into January. But as more Americans are waking up to the reality that the crisis was not manufactured and is, indeed, a real crisis, Democrats have begun spinning their old lies into a different type of attack on the President.

Now, they’re trying to say the claims of “manufactured crisis” were actually condemnations on the President’s policies that they believed made the situation worse.

This, folks, is a lie.

They’re making a 1984-like claim now, saying they believe there’s a crisis at the border and they’ve always believed there was a crisis at the border. And their mainstream media puppets are going along with it.

But not all of them.

The Hill, which has over 50 million visitors per month, is left-leaning but with some unbiased reporters and even a few conservatives. Reporter Alexander Bolton told it like it is in his recent post:

Democrats make U-turn on calling border a ‘manufactured crisis’

After Trump issued an Oval Office address to the nation on Jan. 8 proclaiming the border situation a “crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul,” Schumer and Pelosi gave a side-by-side rebuttal.

“This president just used the backdrop of the Oval Office to manufacture a crisis, stoke fear and divert attention from the turmoil in his administration,” Schumer said in the midst of a 35-day government shutdown sparked by a partisan disagreement over funding border barriers.

Other Democrats made similar dismissals.

“The President has manufactured a humanitarian crisis. It is solely Trump’s fault NOT the Democrats,” House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) tweeted.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a leading contender for the Democratic presidential nomination, admonished Trump in a video statement: “Mr. President, we don’t need to create artificial crises. We have enough real ones.”

The only way Democrats can squirm out of this one is if the American people are stupid. They hope we’re stupid. They’re banking on it.

To support immigration, we MUST oppose illegal immigration



To support immigration we MUST oppose illegal immigration

The most dangerous threat to immigrants in this country is the influx of illegal immigrants. This isn’t an opinion. It’s demonstrable that illegal immigrants harm legal immigrants the most by taking their jobs, resources, benefits, and space. But more importantly, the crime, disease, and poverty they bring here directly affect legal immigrants.

Democrats love to claim Republicans oppose immigration. This is a bald-faced lie and it’s imperative that we stop allowing them to do so without setting the facts straight. Sure, there are some Republicans who believe in reducing legal immigration, but even among those who feel this way, their reasoning is often associated with the influx of illegal immigrants. Dramatically slow the flow of illegal immigrants and the vast majority of Republicans would support keeping legal immigration numbers where they’re at or even increasing them, as the President has suggested.

But until the illegal immigration problem is fixed, it is not in our best interests to increase legal immigration. It can’t be. The strain on our benefits programs is already far too high because of illegal immigrants. There are plenty of legal immigrants, veterans, and homeless American citizens who need our taxpayer-funded assistance. They should be getting that assistance, but many are not because the programs are so strained by illegal immigrants.

The narrative being pushed forth by nearly every Democratic candidate for president is that the President, his supporters, and Republicans in Congress are against immigration. For example:

It’s natural to feel compassion for those who are struggling in their lives. I can’t imagine what it’s like to live in El Salvador under an oppressive government, rampant crime, and limited opportunities. This is why I am a big proponent of legal immigration. But those who decide to take what they feel they’re entitled to by crossing the border illegally, filing for asylum, and being among the 90% who never show up for their hearing do not deserve compassion. They are stealing from you, me, and every taxpayer even though we are willing to help them.

If someone knocks on your door and asks for help, you have the choice to do so. If you give them assistance, that is a good thing. If someone sneaks in through the back door and takes your money, you didn’t have a choice. They took assistance whether you were able to give it to them or not. This is a bad thing.

Democrats want there to be no distinction between legal and illegal immigrants. Whether they are granted entry and assistance or if they steal it, Democrats want the American people to believe these are the same type of people. They’re all immigrants. But that does not elevate illegal immigrants to a higher status. Instead, it’s lowering the status of legal immigrants. I am not okay with that. I didn’t come to this country legally just so Democrats can conflate my status with that of those who breached our borders without permission and who expect my earnings to pay for their well-being. We must stop allowing them to frame the issue as one of immigrants versus Republicans. That’s just not how things are in reality.

In a post-truth society, illegal immigrants and legal immigrants can be the same thing. We must oppose this false reality.

By not distinguishing between legal and illegal immigrants, Democrats insult those who came to this nation properly. As a legal immigrant, I did not steal sovereignty from America and comparisons to those who do are lies.
