Like many good things, the Dream Act got hijacked by those wanting to use its popularity to push open borders and amnesty. Congress should immediately pass a new version.
The bottom line is that only an act of Congress can remove the discretionary authority of the executive branch to enforce immigration law.
Regardless of whether one agrees with DACA’s aims, an executive order should not be the vehicle for resolving a hotly debated political issue. Elections should.
Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts is a politician — a politician who consistently makes laws, inconsistently applies the Constitution, and can’t be voted out of office.
It’s not the president or the Supreme Court’s job or power to make laws. It’s Congress’s. And even though DACA is a good idea, Congress hasn’t made it law, so nobody else should either.
The American people are losing patience and demanding our government to do something with our broken immigration system.
Our parents respected America enough to not come here illegally, even if it meant being imprisoned, tortured, or even executed while they awaited legal entry.
While Democrats play politics, too many Republicans are either too willing to give Democrats what they want while receiving little in return, or secretly have no problem with porous borders.
The facts of DACA lay bare the fraud underlying the Democrats’ politically motivated, selective shuttering of the federal government.
After all their talk about its importance, it was Democrats who left a 6-year funding package for CHIP on the table, not Republicans.
What if Democrats are using DACA recipients as human shields to get increased voter intensity, political donations, and turnout in upcoming elections?
DACA is not a path to legal residency or U.S. citizenship. It’s only a temporary solution. It’s no different than putting a small Band-Aid on a large wound.
Immigration laws serve the moral purpose of regulating entry into the nation and safeguarding against unwanted or dangerous intruders.
Political theater or not, DACA is probably unconstitutional. Something the pretend-defenders of law and order might want to remember.
This has nothing to do with discrimination against young people brought here illegally. It has everything to do with sound and prudent business practice.
