Democrats and liberals/leftists are mounting a public relations campaign in the Mainstream Media to save DACA (Dreamers) ahead of a Supreme Court hearing. In one recent media article Washtenaw County Sheriff Jerry Clayton, Nueces County, Texas District Attorney Mark Gonzalez, and former federal prosecutor Miriam Aroni Krinsky authored an article that claims DACA Dreamers make American communities safer.
Typical of liberal/leftist arguments, the three authors never purposely ignore using the term “illegal” or “undocumented” when referring to “immigrants.” They claim there’s been an “erosion of immigrant protections” and “efforts to entangle localities in immigration enforcement.”
Clayton, Gonzalez, and Krinsky don’t seem to understand the meaning of the word ILLEGAL in the terms “illegal immigration” and “illegal alien.” Whether they accept it or not, there is a big illegal immigration problem. We must also identify and control the border to prevent criminals and terrorists from entering.
Furthermore, we must not make exceptions to immigration laws. Otherwise, we are on a slippery slope. Anyone and everyone entering the country illegally must be treated like an illegal alien regardless of age or situation.
Also, DACA has encouraged the endangerment of thousands of children as illegal aliens have learned that if they are accompanied by a minor, their chances for admittance and release is higher. The recent use of DNA testing has found many “fake families” bring children across the border.
Alien criminals, including DACA recipients who have committed crimes, impact on immigrant communities because that’s where they reside and hide. Illegal alien crime is like any other crime but committed by someone that should NOT be in the United States and, therefore, avoidable.
Liberals and leftists are have shown they don’t care about law and order or the rule of law when a political agenda is involved. DACA was created illegally by President Obama’s executive order which circumvented Congress and the process for amending or changing immigration law. Accordingly, President Trump should be able to nullify it by executive order.
They also care only about their leftist/liberal political agenda, which means open borders and encouraging more illegal immigration. Sadly, the news media supports and promotes their agenda and message.
However, the fact is all illegal immigration is ILLEGAL. We must not encourage, excuse, or reward it under any circumstance or for any age. Immigration to the U.S. must be controlled and measured.
As to whether or not DACA recipients make American communities safer, they are illegal aliens who are unlawfully in the country. If we accept one type of crime because it is not violent or victimless, what other crimes are we willing to tolerate and encourage?
