DACA And What Trump Just Did 9-5-17

Yesterday, as you know, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the Trump Administration was restoring the rule of law and winding down Barack Obama's unconstitutional DACA amnesty for illegal immigrants who were brought into the country by their parents. Predictably, the left howled with outrage. I want to take a moment to revisit some facts and point out the rhetorical manipulation of the left and its media allies.

Let's be absolutely clear: This is not Donald Trump's fault. A Democrat Congress failed to pass the so-called "Dream Act" in 2010. President Obama then responded with executive orders that the courts struck down as illegal abuses of his authority. Even many liberals have acknowledged this.

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) admitted that DACA was on "shaky" legal ground. Left-wing law professor Jonathan Turley said Obama abused his authority to circumvent Congress. And Sen. Lindsey Graham, who generally supports amnesty, said, Trump "was right to terminate DACA."

Are you hearing any of that on the evening news?

Here's another fact: These 800,000 "children" are often young adults. DACA applied to people between the ages of 15 and 31. Among other things, DACA provided multi-year work permits. In other words, it allowed illegal immigrants to get jobs American citizens might otherwise have.

But because of cleverly named legislation in Congress, they are all "Dreamers." Well, all kids have dreams, including children who don't get much attention -- those born here to U.S. citizens. Their dreams are often squashed because their overworked parents find that their taxes keep them from getting ahead.

Of course, many "Dreamers" are noble individuals. Some are not. More than 2,000 lost their DACA status due to criminal activity.

But all of the left's rhetoric is intended to create emotionalism in order to trump the rule of law.

Another argument the left raises appeals to our sense of fairness. "These kids didn't break the law, their parents did. We don't hold children responsible for their parents," progressives say. Oh, but they do.

They are holding an entire generation responsible for the sins of their grandparents and great grandparents, especially if they happened to live in a Southern state. Those kids are routinely told that they are benefitting from white privilege, and they must make amends for that "original sin."

Speaking of which, Cristina Jimenez of United We Dream demanded Congress immediately grant amnesty to the dreamers and "without any racist gimmicks" like a border wall or restrictions on sanctuary cities. So commonsense measures to promote border security are now gimmicks and examples of "white supremacism."

One last observation: Don't forget that the left told us last year that Trump supporters were "irredeemable and deplorable." So illegal immigrants who were brought into the country are "Dreamers," but American citizens who are conservatives are "deplorable."

It's good to know where you stand with the left.
