President Trump Releases Statement on DACA…

WHITE HOUSE – As President, my highest duty is to defend the American people and the Constitution of the United States of America. At the same time, I do not favor punishing children, most of whom are now adults, for the actions of their parents. But we must also recognize that we are nation of opportunity because we are a nation of laws.

The legislative branch, not the executive branch, writes these laws – this is the bedrock of our Constitutional system, which I took a solemn oath to preserve, protect, and defend.

In June of 2012, President Obama bypassed Congress to give work permits, social security numbers, and federal benefits to approximately 800,000 illegal immigrants currently between the ages of 15 and 36. The typical recipients of this executive amnesty, known as DACA, are in their twenties. Legislation offering these same benefits had been introduced in Congress on numerous occasions and rejected each time.

In referencing the idea of creating new immigration rules unilaterally, President Obama admitted that “I can’t just do these things by myself” – and yet that is exactly what he did, making an end-run around Congress and violating the core tenets that sustain our Republic.

Officials from 10 States are suing over the program, requiring my Administration to make a decision regarding its legality. The Attorney General of the United States, the Attorneys General of many states, and virtually all other top legal experts have advised that the program is unlawful and unconstitutional and cannot be successfully defended in court.

There can be no path to principled immigration reform if the executive branch is able to rewrite or nullify federal laws at will.

The temporary implementation of DACA by the Obama Administration, after Congress repeatedly rejected this amnesty-first approach, also helped spur a humanitarian crisis – the massive surge of unaccompanied minors from Central America including, in some cases, young people who would become members of violent gangs throughout our country, such as MS-13.

Only by the reliable enforcement of immigration law can we produce safe communities, a robust middle class, and economic fairness for all Americans.

Therefore, in the best interests of our country, and in keeping with the obligations of my office, the Department of Homeland Security will begin an orderly transition and wind-down of DACA, one that provides minimum disruption.

While new applications for work permits will not be accepted, all existing work permits will be honored until their date of expiration up to two full years from today. Furthermore, applications already in the pipeline will be processed, as will renewal applications for those facing near-term expiration. This is a gradual process, not a sudden phase out. Permits will not begin to expire for another six months, and will remain active for up to 24 months. Thus, in effect, I am not going to just cut DACA off, but rather provide a window of opportunity for Congress to finally act.

Our enforcement priorities remain unchanged. We are focused on criminals, security threats, recent border-crossers, visa overstays, and repeat violators. I have advised the Department of Homeland Security that DACA recipients are not enforcement priorities unless they are criminals, are involved in criminal activity, or are members of a gang.

The decades-long failure of Washington, D.C. to enforce federal immigration law has had both predictable and tragic consequences: lower wages and higher unemployment for American workers, substantial burdens on local schools and hospitals, the illicit entry of dangerous drugs and criminal cartels, and many billions of dollars a year in costs paid for by U.S. taxpayers. Yet few in Washington expressed any compassion for the millions of Americans victimized by this unfair system. Before we ask what is fair to illegal immigrants, we must also ask what is fair to American families, students, taxpayers, and job seekers.

Congress now has the opportunity to advance responsible immigration reform that puts American jobs and American security first. We are facing the symptom of a larger problem, illegal immigration, along with the many other chronic immigration problems Washington has left unsolved.

We must reform our green card system, which now favors low-skilled immigration and puts immense strain on U.S. taxpayers. We must base future immigration on merit – we want those coming into the country to be able to support themselves financially, to contribute to our economy, and to love our country and the values it stands for. Under a merit-based system, citizens will enjoy higher employment, rising wages, and a stronger middle class. Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue have introduced the RAISE Act, which would establish this merit-based system and produce lasting gains for the American People.

I look forward to working with Republicans and Democrats in Congress to finally address all of these issues in a manner that puts the hardworking citizens of our country first.

As I’ve said before, we will resolve the DACA issue with heart and compassion – but through the lawful Democratic process – while at the same time ensuring that any immigration reform we adopt provides enduring benefits for the American citizens we were elected to serve. We must also have heart and compassion for unemployed, struggling, and forgotten Americans.

Above all else, we must remember that young Americans have dreams too. Being in government means setting priorities. Our first and highest priority in advancing immigration reform must be to improve jobs, wages and security for American workers and their families.

It is now time for Congress to act!

~ President Donald J Trump

    Disappointing. Trump didn’t go nearly far enough.

    A lot of people seem really confused by what appears to be the latest coordinated, threadbare GOPe/Uniparty shill point being bandied about on many immigration restrictionist sites — Trump followed the law. It’s the job of the Congress to pass legislation. Yeah, well, duh! Who ever said otherwise?

    Of course it is not Trump’s job to legislate. No joke. It is, however, Trump’s job to reverse rather than extend illegal executive orders by Obama.

    To be clear, let’s review what just happened.

    1) President Trump extended Barack Obama’s illegal amnesty executive order for another six months, and, it should noted, for any illegals that are already in process under the DACA for another 2 years!

    2) Openly invited a fanatically pro-amnesty Congressional leadership to make the DACA permanent.

        Sen. Tom Cotton on Fox just now being interviewed by Brett Baeir. Didn’t catch the lead-in, but I think they were discussing what Congress might do not with the hot potato.

        Cotton made an important point, that whatever “fix” they attempt, they’ll need to restrict chain migration, else any DACAs permitted to stay will turn right around and request chain migration for their parents, who broke the law bringing them here in the first place.

        Cotton said he’s introduced a proposal to counter that, restricts “family” immigration to a spouse or unmarried children (I think it was unmarried, know it was children).

        So the chain migration aspects are key to keeping any DACA “amnesty” from becoming a wider amnesty on the sly.

            I just found this statement from P45. It does not look good.

            “I have a love for these people and hopefully now Congress will be able to help them and do it properly,” Trump said.

            The president made his remarks prior to a meeting with Congressional leaders at the White House to discuss tax reform and after Obama decried his decision as “cruel.”

            He signaled hope that Congress could pass something “long term” to help the people affected by his decision.

              Those with work visas get to sign up for a one time two year extension. This is all smoke and mirrors. There are 70000 that will be able to continue the application process. We are no longer a nation of laws especially with a Congress more concerned about reelection than their legislative responsibilities. We are being played again. No movement on Obamacare repeal, tax reform, enforcement of immigration law, building the wall, and a myriad of other broken promises. Congress will support illegal immigrants no matter the costs to the American people. No concern about their lack of assimilation and reception of checks from all the entitlement programs. Amnesty is coming with all the benefits attached.

                All he has to do is stop welfare payments, free healthcare, and college tuition.

By the way, American citizens do not get treated as well while they are paying for ungrateful illegal immigrants.

          Deporting the parents is squarely within existing immigration law, is it not?

          DACAs are staying for now, likely for approx 2 years, and possibly permanently if Congress makes that kludge. If Congress doesn’t, then perhaps they’ll be subject to deportation after the 2 or 3 years the permit system winds down. That’d be nice.

            nimrodman…

            I think what most people are forgetting is that this is a long game.

            It’s too early to burn bridges. Trump has not even been president for 9 full months yet. Many things still need to be done in Congress (bunch of corrupt ass clowns who are getting paid to do the opposite of America first).

            You are trying to get a TKO in the first round. Remember the recent Mayweather fight? He out lasted McGregor then turned it on to win with a minimum chance that he would get hurt…why? bc McGregor was used to UFC fights that only lasts a few minutes. Remember that Trump is still figuring out who is really friend vs. foe. The stakes are too high.

            I say lets ratchet back our disappointment and maybe understand that Trump does not care about what the constitution says sometimes and follows the constitution to the letter other times…Why? Because he is trying to find a solution that works for the benefit of the American people.

            If there are 1 million dreamers then how many people are attached to them (boyfriend, girlfriend, parents, children, aunts, uncle, colleagues, friends, etc). So maybe 15 – 20 other people are affected?

            perceived problem: illegals are given unconstitutional amnesty
            Real Problem: 20-30 million people are negatively affected by Trump seeing this as a black & white situation.

            Most of us can agree that we are thankful when we get warnings instead of a speeding ticket…So the smart play is to give a warning ticket only to those, who, by being in this country makes it better for Americans. How? By being educated with prospects and able to sustain themselves. Thus you move them from a liability to an asset on our country’s P&L.

            put it another way…asking if a glass is half full or half empty makes no sense if you’re thirsty. bc then, the question shouldn’t be if the glass is half full or half empty but does the glass have enough water to quench our thirst or do we need more water. A 96oz half empty glass may be enough but a 10 oz half full glass may not be enough.

            To address problems in a meaningful way is to not understand only the problem but the ramification of the pros and cons of solving and not solving the problem.

            With Trump’s DACA gambit he got a two-fer.

            The real phonies are about to get exposed and hopefully primaried.

            Trump did the exact same thing with the Charlottesville riots…by calling out Antifa he faced a barrage of incoming…

            so perceived problem: media portrayed Trump as a racist bc he implied Nazis are no worse than anti Nazi protestors.
            Real problem: Media’s fake narrative that Trump is a racist vs Trump’s narrative that the MSM are fake news so any assessment of him by them is also fake….thus he is NOT racist.

            Trump would never solve that by trying to explain that he’s not a racist. Instead he said both rioters were to blame. This made the MSM/Dems/RINOs state forcefully that ONLY the Nazis were to blame. Trump stuck to his guns bc he knows in real life he is not trying to win a debate with the MSM (perceived problem) but to delegitimize the MSM lest they do it to him (real problem).

            By basically saying he’s going only by what he’s seen this far. The American people start to look and see for themselves and suddenly Antifa becomes radioactively toxic. Thus he is able to get the dems and eventually, that shitbag paul ryan to condemn antifa (due to their internal polling I’m sure) and now antifa is not only being piled on by the once friendly if not a sycophantic MSM but has been classified a domestic terrorist organization…now we can tag who funds them (Soros) and start to build a case against them and take punitive action. By making Antifa toxic politically he makes people in associated with antifa just as toxic.

            Trump realizes the problem with Soros and the way he solves it is by a battle of defining his opponent by having issues stick to them while everything bounces off the ‘teflon’ Don.

          Cotton’s got a few things to say about chain migration and if there’s any Congressional “fix” to keep the DACAs, I suspect it’ll need to have an equal fix to the chain migration issue or it won’t make it out of the House or Senate.

          I think there’ll be enough Republicans that won’t allow a DACA amnesty if the DACAs can turn right around and amnesty their parents via “chain migration”. And any Repubs unhappy with the way it’s going can take that issue out to the public and get a lot of press about it and primary risk for amnesty GOPers.

          By the midterms 1/3 of all permits will have had to be reauthorized. By request. Not auto.
          Any % granted, would led one to assume they passed muster. The “Based on Merit” folks
          Any % granted, but at a reduced period of time or available options/permissions/benefits
          As long as they do not trigger Enforcement Priority Status from DHS
          Moving in the direction. Some issue(s) to be resolved. Considered non threatening.
          Any % Denied, would lead one to believe they’re outa here. Goodbye. You had your shot.

          Any % No request Leads to believe they self deported, are in hiding inside the
          US or they are in custody.

          Does that sound right

        Some here are claiming this is a brilliant plat by PDJT. I don’t buy it. Although their rational is correct, what they don’t incorporate is is irrationality of the GOPe. I firmly believe they are going to burn their base again and pass amnesty without any qualifications and throw it back on trumps desk to sign. They’re also going to increase the debt ceiling without funding for the wall. Base be damned.

              DACA was a Memo sent by Janet Napolitano to Immigration enforcement – DAPA was a Memo sent by Jeh Johnson to Immigration enforcement to offer the same DACA deal to relatives of the “dreamers”. It was DAPA (Obama’s standard over-reach) that blew the lid off. 26 States sued (when they failed to sue against the “dreamers”) and won at all Courts, including the US Supreme Court.

              The DAPA case proven without Controversy that DACA is Un-Constitutional.
              Keep hammering that – Obama did NOT have Constitutional Authority to make a “policy” that Nullified US Immigration Law that is in place. ONLY Congress has that Authority.

              Congress MUST act and that is what Trump will keep saying. Odds are great that only a Republican filibuster proof Senate can pass new Immigration Law, but it’s going to take a “Great Communicator” to explain the issues to the American public and it’s going to take cooperation from Mexico.

            A true Executive Order is one lawfully issued by the President, and applies SOLELY to the Executive Branch of the federal government, of which the President is the head. I. E., it has basis and law and the Constitution. It is designed to make small adjustments to programs and policies of the executive branch, not to change laws themselves.

            An Executive Action has NO basis in law or Constitution, is used to substitute for Congressional action, and is a gross usurpation of the legislative prerogative to make law.

            That is the difference. When Obutthead couldn’t get his way through improperly applied EOs, he defaulted to EA, which is just dictatoship.

          What Trump did today is outstanding. Trump struck a blow for law and order, and that’s a success no matter what the f–k Congress does with this. Sessions said “catch,” and threw Congress a curve ball, which will keep them all occupied through the run-up to the next primaries.

          And they can’t do the usual Congressional thing and let the hot potato die by inaction, because this one’s ticking. So … the Administration does the right thing for America, and does it in a tactical, smart and effective way.The question is what is most likely to happen over the next month?

          The Congress must create A budget in 25 days
          The Congress is still working on Obamacare repeal
          The Congress must put an end to hiking the debt limit
          The Congress must provide funding for the Wall
          The Congress must budget for Hurricane Harvey relief funding
          Now, Trump just overloaded the legislative system by asking the Congress to codify DACA rules or leave immigration law as is.

          What does that sound like to you? Congress has some work to do, all in a pretty short span of time. DACA will not be a priority. It will die a natural death. Perhaps they shouldn’t have been resting on their laurels these many months.

      It’s all smoke and mirrors.

      When a law is held unconstitutional, anyone who was affected by it generally is placed back in the legal situation they occupied immediately before the law took effect. So should it be with anyone affected by an illegally and unconstitutionally created immigration amnesty system like the unconstitutional DACA program.

      In this case, prior to DACA those affected had no work permit and no residency permit. So, if DACA really had been rescinded today, the work and residency permits granted under it would have been revoked effective today. They were not. So this is no longer Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty program. It is now Trump’s illegal and unconstitutional amnesty program.

      There is no way to put any kind of positive spin on this. Every DACA work permit that continues in effect after today continues to represent an American citizen who, in his or her own country, is forced to step aside for an illegal alien. Americans were again told that our interests take second place to those who came to and remain in this country illegally. Not what I voted for.

        Uh, not quite. If the work permits etc had all been rescinded today, there would have been injunction lawsuits filed on behalf of aggrieved dreamers from coast to coast. Unconstitutionally or otherwise, the permits were issued, the government should honour them, on moral if not legal grounds. Now that DACA is in ‘remission’, it is true that Trump could refuse to grant any permit renewals. However that too would undoubtedly have brought lawsuits. Do you remember the reaction to the ‘muslim’ travel ban?!

        Right now, NO ONE has any grounds for suing the Trump administration. When, and if people start getting deported in the next 6 to 24 months, it will be Congress that takes the heat, not Trump.

      They’ve been “against” it all this time (like obamacare) when they knew it was safe to be against it. Now they can show us who the really are.

      He’s absolutely correct to give Congress a chance to make things right, and if they don’t; then President Trump needs you to participate and do your part – VOTE FOR IT.

    What is the one topic that brings together Republicans with a majority of Independents as well as Reagan Democrats?

    Immigration!

    What our President did today by having AG Jeff Sessions announce the plan to rescind DACA is beyond brilliant! The RAISE Act is kryptonite to the Gang of 8 Amnesty folks. I love to look at the Yahoo comment section whenever immigration is discussed. It is the only topic that flips the comments completely upside down. You will see a 4:1 or 5:1 ratio of opponents against illegal immigration versus those who support open borders. The Uniparty also can’t help but to expose themselves in these articles.

    Democrats and Uniparty Republicans are petrified about immigration! I hope that they do everything in their power to stop the RAISE Act, Kate’s Law and Sanctuary Cities Bill from becoming law. Dreamers die and Democrats get the blame because they were unwilling to participate in real Immigration Reform.

    Every single Democrat and Uniparty Republican will have to show their true colors! Our President will use that to campaign like crazy in those states on the need of getting Trump Republicans into the Senate in order for these three pieces of legislation to pass. The funniest part is that he will include the Dreamers and make himself look like the HERO!

    We have 13 Democrats/Independents that are very vulnerable in 2018. 10 Democrats come from states our President won during the Presidential Election. Good luck saying that you weren’t willing to negotiate in good faith to save the Dreamers. Our Lion will have the parents of killed children by illegals with him on every single rally in those states. The RNC will put a majority of their money into those states. We truly could win 8 to 10 of those states on this one topic alone!

    You tell me if voters in these 11 states would vote the Democrat/Independent back in knowing they were not willing to negotiate on Immigration Reform to help Americans and the Dreamers:

    WV, OH, MO, MT, ND, IN, PA, FL, WI, MI and ME

    The other two states we will go after the Democrats in is NJ (Menendez) and VA (Kaine).

    The U.S. Chamber of Commerce (their masters) also expressed doubt that the RAISE Act would improve the employment landscape.

    “The goal of moving to a more skills-based immigration system that meets the diverse needs of our economy is a good one and one long championed by the Chamber,” Randy Johnson, senior vice president for labor, immigration, and employee benefits at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said. “But dramatically reducing overall immigration levels won’t raise the standard of living for Americans. In fact, it will likely accomplish the opposite, making it harder for businesses, communities, and our overall economy to grow, prosper, and create jobs for American workers.”

      Fle, and this is why Congressional leadership has already put out statements saying their schedule is too full of “critical” issues to be able to get to DACA. Congress wants to delay anything to do with immigration reform. From the Sara presser article I wrote the following:

      “Oh they [Congress] care about them because they care about their donors (the puppeteers). To get enough support on DACA they[ Congress] need to add RAISE act and probably the wall funding.

      From the very beginning – Mr Trump has shown something I’ve never seen before – he goes right to the people and they listen. The Uniparty whines, the Media try to tell us what to think – Donald J. Trump can gather many thousands of people in venues as various as stadiums, airport hangers, parks …. almost anywhere and he can do it within days. Nobody has a megaphone even comparable to the Social Media AND the Mega-Rallies.

      It will take every bit of that to clean the swamp AND to explain in simple words everyone can understand – how to fix complicated things like Immigration. It’s a step by step process and those who want/demand some sort of instant gratification will just have to have more faith that timing is crucial and moving the Do Nothing Congress will take some time.

      CongressCritters (for the most part) care about ONLY one thing – “How can I get re-elected & keep my cushy job”. They will learn thru MAGA that they get re-elected by getting onboard the Train – never forget that when they diss the President, they are really thumbing their Elite Noses at the people who elected that President.

President Trump stuck a needle in McCain and keeps having McCain over and over and because of that Obamacare was not repealed. Rescinding DACA gave McCain more power. Why do that President Trump, why were you a bonehead about McCain by mocking him? McCain is now the most powerful man in the country.

    The tacit or outright acceptance of open borders and mass illegal immigration by past Bush and Obama administrations, Rino’s, Dems and Gang of Eight type GOP legislators for decades is at the core of this lingering issue. If a business does not seek prosecution for theft from their store and actually encourages it are the thieves entirely to blame. In the case of a country, those responsible for securing its borders are not directly or adversely affected by the mass illegal immigration. In fact, many elected reps have profited greatly from it via campaign donations, re-election (in Calif) and other more nefarious ways, so a sane and comprehensive policy to deal with the problem was never passed.
    Segments of populations or human beings around the world are constantly looking for places to live with better opportunities either for their families or to foster their criminal enterprises. Trump is right again. Just like he called out both sides at Charlottesville, both sides are culpable here on immigration and I think his statement places the responsibility on Congress where it belongs and not in the lap of a newly elected President. A permanent fix is needed and Trump has given Congress the opportunity to do so. Primary voters across the country can let their opinions be known to their Senator or Rep. That is democracy. It is not perfect but it is the best system available.

    “I applaud President Trump and Attorney General Sessions’ decision today to end the DACA program. Despite former President Obama’s reliance on executive orders to create unconstitutional immigrant amnesty programs, it is the Congress’ constitutional duty to write laws. Before considering any immigration reform, Congress should first pass legislation to fund the Border Wall. Only after securing the border, can Congress in good faith address immigration reform.”

            Kill 2 birds with one stone – any DACA type legislation needs to include a Remittance Fee for money sent out of the USA by the illegal immigrants – 4% is about right and enough to “pay for the wall”. Mr Trump has spoken of this in his Rallies. It’s somewhere between $25-30 BILLION a year – that’s how Mexico “pays for the wall”. We collect a “fee” on the remittance that Mexico receives. They get more money from the remittance than they do from their Oil Exports. The real Hardball Approach is to STOP the Remittance fees to Mexico, but the threat of doing so is going to be enough to get them to a bargaining table.

            http://money.cnn.com/2016/09/01/news/economy/mexico-peso-money-transfer-trump-remittance/index.html

            From Money.Cnn
            Mexico heavily depends on its workers living abroad to send cash back home.
            Almost $25 billion flowed last year from the pockets of Mexicans living overseas, almost all of it from the U.S. That’s even higher than what Mexico earns from its oil exports.
            The average remittance in June was $300.08, which when multiplied by the number of Mexican workers abroad totals billions each year. Donald Trump has his eye on those billions — earlier this year, he said the cash could pay for the wall he has proposed between the U.S.-Mexico border, even though he didn’t mention that in his meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on Wednesday.
            Essentially, Mexico’s most lucrative natural resources are the people who leave home. The cash remittances are a lifeline for the country and a critical source of economic development for America’s southern neighbor.
            Remittances are even expected to top $28 billion this year. All that money is dependent on a border that allows people to cross. Trump threatens this money flow in 2 ways: putting a stop to remittances and building a wall. Both would turn off the money spigot.

            There is a lot to consider when it come to Remittances from the USA to Foreign Nations – it’s a LOT of Money. The Congressional Research Service produced a study on it in 2016.

    I hope Trump vetos a yellow-bellied congress DACA bill if it ever comes to that.

    All illegal alien invaders are criminals and should be ejected as soon as possible. Those that have a record of additional criminality should be banned forever and the rest should be sent to the very back of the line of rule-following immigrant wannabes.

    The only ones I have any sympathy for are the tiny minority who were brought here as very small children and are now teenagers or adults who have been here for the large majority of their lives AND (most importantly) have fully assimilated American language, culture and values. If the very few in this category demonstrate love of America over any other land, demonstrate proficiency in our language, history and culture (work ethic, etc.) AND have no criminal record, then I would let them stay, but only if they are willing to become citizens and completely renounce all other allegiances and citizenships and agree to never attempt to bring in anyone else from their birth family or birth land.

    Those that came here as older children do not qualify. Those that were brought here as infants or toddlers, but have only been here less than five years do not qualify (this would include all of the aka obama “dreamers”).

    Obama played fast and loose with people’s lives by circumventing Congress and using his Executive Order to create DACA. Yes, there are some tragic cases, especially among the few Dreamer children, as opposed to the post-adolescents, 30+-yr olds, and MS-13 criminals.

    Obama expropriated the country – he gave away services and opportunities not his to give away. And now the financing citizenry is supposed to enthusiastically support Obama’s folly and formalize the program? There is no pleasant solution to this, but continuing down this path is destructive in every way.

    Obama knew full well the public never would have supported his DACA program – that’s why he steered clear of Congress. This worm used these people as a political battering ram against the middle class that he so desperately despises.

    Trump is heaping their plate full and telling them to eat their peas too! Come election time in 2018, if they haven’t done their job, the evidence will still be sitting on their plate and their will be no one else to blame. Then maybe dumb ass voters will kick them out on their rear ends like they should have been a long time ago.

    This thread was depressing. Thought Treepers were made of stronger stuff. Of course many regulars didn’t post. Stay strong and of good faith Treepers. And to repeat myself remember the Trump rally theme song.
    “You may not always get what you want,
    But if you try you may get what you need”
    Hard for me to get lathered up over 800,000 people entering a job market generating close to 300,000 jobs a month and growing. Many of there Dreamers are high school grads, college students/grads. They aren’t the typical lawn boys and fruit pickers.

      Sure and we need to maintain a Republic. The problem is widespread illegal immigration (by parents) that is allowed for by many actors within our society (particularly the last four presidents.) The failure of the last four president (as well as Congress and the Courts) to enforce immigration laws is one of the greatest political scandals in our history. Those that actively did not enforce our laws should be placed on a Wall of Shame and, if possible, tried for crimes against the Republic. Illegals must go home. It takes folks made of “stronger stuff” to run a great nation.

      Anyone can show up and comment ….. you know that.
      Infestations are not unknown. The Anti-Trumpers play a deep game, the entire point is to sow discord, shake the supporters and attempt to make Mr Trump “illegitimate”.

      Do we trust anonymous posters or do we trust Sundance and long time Treepers?

    I don’t understand all the flak here. President Trump clearly stated he is eliminating DACA in six months and Congress must act or it will be gone completely. He is following the law here. What is it you all are bitching about?

    Any incentive or reward for illegal behavior begets more illegal behavior. If you want to stop, or at least slow down, illegal immigration, we must at long last end all incentives and rewards.

    We don’t have to DO ANYTHING TO “law-abiding” illegal aliens (i. e. we don’t need mass deportations), as long as we don’t DO ANYTHING FOR them — like grant work permits, in-state tuition, welfare, drivers licenses, or “legalized” status. if they can’t work or live off their legal family or friends, they will self deport. Watch and listen to this illegal alien explain:

    BTW — legalized status will last 24 hours before Ryan, Gutierrez, C of C, et al, DEMAND that we end the “second class citizen” status and grant full American citizenship to all illegal aliens. And the flood will continue, just as it did after 1986

    DACA not only deferrs deportation (not a long-term incentive) but it REWARDS illegal immigration with work permits. DACA or any law that continues that policy is a huge mistake.

    Clear minds understand we have to stop the rewards and incentives.
    Soft hearts will continue the rewards and hence continue to incentivize illegal immigration.
    It is simple. I pray that POTUS uses his clear mind and not his soft heart.

    And what the American people WANT: http://www.jmisys.com/immigrationmarches/zogby5.html
