Democrats Don't Care About America or Americans or Legal Immigrants
Now that the democrats have shutdown the government over DACA
Here are some of the left on hubpages trying to defend the Schumer Government Shut Down.
"On the flip side, what measures do you take when those in the majority ignore the concerns of your constituents? Tax bill process being the example given.
You reap what you sow."
The republicans may be in the majority, but they don't act as a majority. Some of the republicans think they are democrats.
But more importantly, the TAX bill was about the Country and the people. The democrats didn't have a better tax plan, so Trump got his plan passed.
The current Schumer Shutdown is over DACA not something that is even in the budget. To hold up the budget on an item that is not a budget item and is not due until March 5 of this year shows how ridiculous are the democrats and Schumer.
"The GOP is running ads saying anyone who dies due to a stoppage in Govt. services is the fault of the Democrats. Sounds like something straight from Fox and Limbaugh."
The democrats chose to shutdown the government over DACA and that doesn't help the Country and the people. It is so that these DACA children will get the right to vote, and who will they vote for. Yes, the Democrats. Because the Democrats cared more about them and their voting rights, than they did for the Americans and legal immigrants that voted for them. Now, the democrats turn their back on them, and go all in for illegal foreigners.
"If how the Tax bill passage is the example of real, honest negotiation, then is it any wonder Dems felt the need to fight now?"
How lame is this excuse. The democrats have spent the last year "Resisting" Donald Trump and all they he is trying to accomplish for America and its people.
Why didn't they fight for their own TAX bill, probably because they didn't have one. Can you believe them using the word "honest" in conjunction with Democrats.
The Bottom Line is that the Democrats and some Republicans chose giving the rights of US Citizenship to Illegal Aliens and their children instead of the American People and the US.
I hope that those that voted democrat in 2016 will look at the Schumer Shutdown and think about what more democrats can do to hurt the country, for the benefit of foreigners.
Well to be really honest neither do the Republicans.
But maybe it is possible that president Donald Trump really cares about America, American Citizens, Legal Immigrants, and maybe even other immigrants.
The problem that I see with the Democrats is that they want to give non Americans, and especially illegal aliens all the benefits of pseudo American Citizenship. They have spent more money on these illegals and the illegals that have committed felonies and were convicted and sent to prison.
All that money could have been spent on the Wall, on Infrastructure, and other things that could benefit America and its people.
An extreme example of that is the democrats in CA, they spent most of their money on giving illegal immigrants Welfare, free education, free medical and even driver licenses. While they were doing that the infrastructure in CA was not being addressed or funded. The Orville DAM spillage last February damaged a lot of people and land, and sparked over 500 lawsuits against CA, and all of them were rejected. What a surprise.
Don't want to spoon feed the illegals they want these immigrants to go through the legal immigration process like those from around the world have done. It is not fair for these illegals to jump in front of the line just because they can cross an unprotected border.
While the republicans want a Wall, want to stop Chain Migration, and develop a merit based immigration process, they still could do more for the people in the country.
While both the republicans and democrats have forsaken the victims of the 2008 economic meltdown by helping the banks that caused the collapse at the exclusion of helping the victims. How much of the $1.5 Trillion from Bush and Obama administrations went to the victims?
The Border and the disorder
Democrats don't care for America, Americans or Legal Immigrants
It has always been clear that the democrats and the republican parties have a different view of how to run the country. The old adage of "The democrats are for the poor and republicans are for the rich" is still alive and active even today more than one hundred years later.
Beyond that adage it is more like the democrats are trying, very successfully to get democrat voters. After all who is not going to vote for the party with all the handouts. In this century, the democrats have gone even further, as they now pursue the illegal aliens. That is right "Illegal Aliens", and not the watered down democrat reclassification to "Undocumented Workers".
DACA and the Government Shutdown
Tomorrow night as it falls into Saturday the federal government may shutdown, over DACA. The democrats want everything in DACA but they only want to give president Trump a pittance of what he wants for the country.
The democrats have not done anything beneficial for the country or its people in this almost completed first year of president Donald Trump. They have boasted of their resistance to president Trump, and many have declared him not their president.
The problem with the shutdown is that it adversely affects the United States Military. How does shutting down the US military make any sense. It is dangerous in these times of Terrorism both domestic and foreign.
They are doing this for the illegal aliens that they have encouraged by not protecting our borders to come into the country. DACA is about their children, not our children being used as a political advantage in shutting down the federal government to protect these children.
While president Trump has stated that he and the republicans want the DACA deal, it has to come with Border Security from the Wall, and reforms in the immigration policy to stop chain migration. You know that is what happens one person illegally gets into the country across an open border for example, and then brings in the rest of the family.
As for the government shutdown, it doesn't really affect the civilian government workers, because even though they didn't go to work, they get retroactive pay when the government shutdown is finally over.
This is one thing that has to change. If you are not coming into work then you don't get paid, and the time off doesn't count for your retirement. Maybe then these government workers might has some empathy for the country.
Reasons for the WALL
The democrats don't think that we need a border because the border crossings have dropped since Trump became president. Illegal immigration is only one of several reasons why we need the wall. A WALL and not merely a fence as the democrats want to go cheap on our National Security.
- The top of the list for the Wall is to try and keep out an easy way for the Terrorists to get in and out of the country.
- The Drug Cartel ships over $20 billion dollars of illegal drugs across the border and into the states every year. This is a problem within a problem. The real issue here is that we have people in this country that not only use these drugs but who want these drugs. The drug use by these people leads to crimes, and suicides. The Drug Cartel kills US Border Agents if they are caught bringing them into the country. The Drug Cartel also have gangs in the US to protect their illegal drugs. The gun control people in the US don't want to factor in that suicides account for half the gun deaths in the US. Stopping the people from having guns in the US will not stop the suicides, as there are other devices that can be used for it. These connected problems with Drugs coming across our unprotected borders cost the US taxpayer billions of dollars every year. While putting up a Border Wall is a one time cost. And cutting down drug use can also reduce our costs for these problems.
- Criminals that are embedded in the flow of illegal immigrants also cause not only pecuniary costs, but also in the loss of life. This is also true as with the Drug Cartel illegal activities. While some of these are associated with the Drug Cartel business other are just independent criminals. Like the one recent, Illegal Alien who had been committing crimes and deported several times killed two officers. At his trial, he smiled and said he would have liked to have killed more of them.
- Human Trafficking
- Gun Running. If the democrats are successful in taking away Legal gun ownership, this is where the illegal gun ownership will come from.
But the democrats don't think these are a problem. They are more interested in giving pseudo American Citizenship or at least the rights of citizenship to illegals. They don't care about the National Security, or protecting the Americans and legal immigrants in the US.
Sanctuary Cities and States in the United States
It is one thing to be humane about unwilling pawns like the DACA children, but how do the democrats in this country justify protecting known Felons that have already been tried and Convicted.
We already have immigration laws, and president Obama refused to enforce them. He used his Executive Order powers to change the laws in favor of illegals, and unvetted immigrants.
We have had the democrats and their democrat biased judges of the 9th Circuit to also prevent president Trump to use his executive orders to protect the countries from terrorists getting in to the country bypassing the vetting process.
Can anyone justify why Illegal Aliens that have committed Felonies in the US be protected by these democrat Cities and now State of California.
On top of that, they also give them Welfare, free education, free medical and driver licenses. The democrats keep talking about the cost of the Wall which is a one time cost but what about all the recurring costs from these illegals.
The US prisons and jails are filled with these illegals. There are over 2 million people incarcerated in the country and a substantial number of them are illegals. We have gangs from south of Mexico like MS 13 that have killings as their right of passage.
The cost of keeping these illegal and criminal aliens can be saved and used to pay for the wall. The same is true by stopping the illegal drugs and contraband of the Drug Cartel.
We can save lives of the US Border Patrol and Law Enforcement. The wall can be the cheapest cost compared to what an open border has and will continue to cost the country in both dollars and lives.
Improve the Immigration Laws
It is time that the immigration laws be changed so that we don't keep getting the worst through the current lottery system, but to a merit system where the immigrants can help the country rather than be another mouth to feed.
Canada and Australia have a merit based immigration policy, so why shouldn't the US?
Are the democrats afraid that a merit based immigration system might be in immigrants who wouldn't vote Democrat?
The Democrats have shown themselves to be the enemy within the country. From resisting the president who is trying to protect the people and the country. To their ignoring the people that voted in our elections expecting them to keep them safe and make the country prosperous.
Politics used by the democrats have been weaponized and it is making the country not safe, and it is doing more for the illegals than it is for the American Citizens, and Legal Immigrants in the country.
Sanctuary Cities and States exist because democrats would rather have convicted felons on our streets, than law abiding people of all kinds.
There is no justification for Sanctuary of Convicted Felons!
