I know….I know, it sucks right. We wouldn’t even be in the situation we are in right now if we would have just enforced our immigration laws as they stand now. But we haven’t. Our borders have been open for years, freely allowing for those wanting to come into our country without going through due process.
Today President Trump sat down with bipartisan members of Congress to address DACA: (Differed Action for Childhood Arrivals) an Obama policy that has allowed roughly 800 thousand individuals who entered the country as minors, and had either entered or remained in the country illegally, to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and to be eligible for a work permit. This move by Obama was not permanent, because permanent immigration law REQUIRES CONGRESS. On September 5th 2017, The Trump Administration announced that they would give Congress the chance to legally fix our immigration policy on DACA, the deadline for this is March 5th, 2018.
As a totally SANE looking President sat with members of Congress and publicly discussed DACA and border security, it was obvious that a Businessman was in the Oval Office. People that are business minded compromise in order to close a deal.
I believe this deal will allow the DACA participants to stay. I also don’t think that destroys Conservatives. I don’t believe that every DACA participant will vote Democrat. Once they are given a path to citizenship by a Republican President and they witness a booming economy, tax cuts in their paychecks, home ownership on the rise, job unemployment at record lows, consumer confidence at a seventeen year high, the soaring stock market, and maybe just maybe these Dreamers, won’t vote blue. And you know what, the Democrats know this too, that’s why they don’t want to compromise on a border wall for DACA. They want the borders to stay open for votes.
Today Trump made it clear, DACA could be negotiated IF Three things on Trump’s side could be negotiated:
- Border Security– A wall in some parts across the border where it is easy to cross.
- End Chain Migration-Chain Migration refers to the endless chains of foreign nationals who are allowed to immigrate to the United States because citizens and lawful permanent residents are allowed to sponsor their non-nuclear family members.
- Cancel Lottery Immigration- A chance based immigration system, allowing anyone to enter. President Trump doesn’t want to leave our immigration up to chance, he wants those that will contribute to the U.S. in a positive way to enter instead.
We HAVE to secure the border. We have to end Chain Migration and we Must start bringing those that want to live the American Dream and not live off of the system of dependency in order for America to be Great Again. This is going to take compromise. I think the compromise is allowing the 800 Dreamer’s to stay.
If Democrats REALLY cared about the “Dreamers,” they would Make a Deal with the “Great Negotiator” and fund the Wall, end chain migration and implement a merit based system on immigration. Because this protects Americans, and this SHOULD BE our Elected Officials number one priority.
In closing, I want to be COMPLETELY CLEAR:
If Trump makes a DACA deal without having Border Security (the Wall) in the Deal, ending Chain Migration, and ending the lottery system-we are screwed.
The Deal must include these things!
