Yes, thank you for breaking the law. Thank you for making your first act in this country an illegal one.
It’s one thing to say that we should consider not sending people who have lived all their lives in this country into what is de facto a foreign nation for them. I support some kind of – I’ll use the word – amnesty for such people, combined with serious new measures combating illegal immigration, including money for a wall and curtailing chain migration. And if the “dreamers” are over, say, 25 and can take care of themselves, frankly their parents should go back to their country. We cannot allow the DACA issue to morph into another “final” general amnesty. We’ve been there, done that.
But it’s quite another thing to say that illegal immigration is a good thing and we should be thrilled that we are going to have to grant some kind of qualified amnesty to lawbreakers. And it’s astonishing that the U.S. House minority leader would be found congratulating people for sneaking into the country. Even if it gladdens her heart and enlarges the future Democratic voting base.
Here’s what she said on a CNN “town hall”:
Our Dreamers, they make America dream again.
Pelosi can really turn a phrase, can’t she?
They’re so lovely and we, frankly, owe a debt to your parents for bringing you here to be such a brilliant part of our future. A constant reinvigoration of America – that’s what newcomers are.
When you watch the video below, listen to the DACA beneficiary’s self-righteous tone. As if the country owes him something. What’s more, he portrays the president of the United States as some kind of Gestapo round-up artist:
I am terrified that a deal with Trump would mean that, even if it protects me and my sisters who also have DACA, would enable Trump’s mass deportation agents to go after my family. We need a solution, and we need it soon. Do you commit to pass a dream act before December?
I could be wrong, but judging by his accent and grammatical error, he may not have come to this country too early in life and might not find it so strange to be back there. Either way, he could try out a little humility while making demands on the president and his “mass deportation agents.”
