Drug Trafficiking, DACA, and US Border Security - Part 1

Updated on January 10, 2018

DTOs DACA and Border Securtiy

The bottom line of my opinion about these three items is that the DACA should be behind the Border Security.


  • The reason is that DACA protects the children of illegal aliens whose number is about eight hundred thousand,
  • while the Border Security is about three hundred plus million American Citizens, Legal Immigrants, tourists from around the world, and many other visitors that are in the US.

The democrats in congress want us to believe that the border security is not an issue because they really want illegals to come into the US. They have wanted and allowed for it during the past several decades. That is one of the reasons why California has millions of them. And the US has over ten million of them.

  • In California, over half the state is populated by non whites. This has given the democrats control over the state and local governments.

What the democrats have done is used the illegal alien that they re-imaged as undocumented immigrants to object to the completing the US southern border Wall.

There is more than one reason to improve our border security with a real wall. And the following list is the order of priority.

1. Terrorists

2. Criminals

3. Drugs

4. Human Trafficking

5. Gun Running

6. Illegal Immigration

The democrats are focusing on the 6th important reason why we shouldn't have a completed Border Wall.

I have broken up this article into several parts, and this is part one.

DTO, DACA and United States Border Security

This article is mostly my opinion but any facts eluded to here can be easily verified by a search.

The Political Triangle, DTO, DACA and Border Security

  1. The (DTOs)Drug Trafficking Organizations,
  2. (DACA)Deffered Actions for Childhood Arrivals, and
  3. US Border Security (The Wall) are three sides of a political triangle.

In my opinion, this triangle needs to be reshaped as a circle.

  • In my view, the democrats have taken one side of this political triangle.
  • While the republicans have taken two sides of the triangle.

Democrats Deffered Actions for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

This side is their main concern in the triangle.

While they agree with the need for security of our borders, they don't support an effective way of securing the almost two thousand miles of the US Mexico International Border.

  • Although, during the eight year Obama presidency nothing only thought that a wall was important to border security they voted to fund a seven hundred mile wall.

DACA was the result of several decades of democrats inviting illegal aliens to cross the US Border. Then when the children that they claim didn't have a say in crossing the border might be deported they came up with DACA.

  • DACA is rewarding criminals, and they are criminals as they violate the immigration laws of the US. These illegals brought in their children, and these children are now the major concern of the democrats. Yet, even through their domination under president Obama they didn't pass any reforms to the immigration laws. These laws were not working out for either the US or the immigrants.

The democrats opted to let executive orders from president Obama to counteract existing immigration laws to get their way.

Now that president Obama has been replaced by president Trump and a republican controlled congress they are worried that immigration laws will be enforced. This would require them to make serious modifications to the existing US immigration laws.

  • Why are they so against completing a border wall that they authorized during the Obama presidency? My opinion is that they want these illegals to keep coming into the US with the hope that they will be indebted to the democrats and then vote for democrats in office.
  • Notwithstanding the ineligibility of these illegals to vote in our election, they continue to support them. They give illegals welfare, free medical, free education and even give them not only sanctuary cities, but this year California is now a sanctuary state.

The democrats then criticize the wall because it will cost billions.

But consider how much these illegal immigrants cost the US and the states in the freebies that are given to them.

To protect the democrats desire to have illegal aliens and even criminals vote in US elections, they are against having voter id requirements to vote. They also resist the requiring the states to consolidate and compare state voting records against the total voting record. The purpose of which is to see if people are voting more than once.

The idea of DACA is a great gesture of US humanity, but it masks the real reason why I think that the democrats are more interested in foreign criminals getting superior rights than American Citizens.

  • That means that one side of the triangle mentioned above has a hidden democrat agenda. For example, half of the state of California is non white. And these are the people that vote democrat. And that is why for the last several decades California has been a huge Blue State.

History of US Immigration Laws

1790 Naturalization Act

Excluded non-white people from eligibility to naturalize.

  • Naturalization requirements

  1. 2 years residence in the country
  2. “good moral character,”
  3. must be a “free white person.”

Naturalization Act of 1795

  1. extended the residency requirement to 5 years.
  2. 1798, extended to 14 years,
  3. back to five in 1802.

Early legislation favored Europeans,

  • 1965 law opened doors to immigrants from other parts of the world.
  • In more recent years, laws and presidential actions have been shaped by concerns
  1. about refugees,
  2. unauthorized immigration and
  3. terrorism.

Today these three concerns have been down played by the democrats to the point of resisting any attempt of president Trump to protect the United States from these three levels of threats.

  • The democrats have chosen to put the illegal immigrants, as well as immigrants in general above the health, welfare and domestic security of the American Citizens and the United States.
  • 1870, People of African origin gained the right of citizenship.
  • 1875, Enacted immigration restrictions
  1. Including bans on criminals,
  2. people with contagious diseases, polygamists, anarchists, beggars and importers of prostitutes.
  3. Other restrictions targeted the rising number of Asian immigrants, first limiting migration from China and later banning immigration from most Asian countries.
  • early 1900s,
  1. the nation’s predominant immigration flow shifted from northern and western European nations
  2. toward southern and eastern Europe.

1921 & 1924

  1. Laws were passed to try to restore earlier immigration patterns
  2. by capping total annual immigration and
  3. imposing numerical quotas based on immigrant nationality that favored northern and western European countries.


  • a law allowed a limited number of Chinese to immigrate.


  • allowed a limited number of visas for other Asians,
  • and race was formally removed as grounds for exclusion.
  • Although a presidential commission recommended scrapping the national-origins quota system, Congress did not go along.


Immigration and Nationality Act

This was passed through a combination of political, social and geopolitical factors.

creating a new system

  1. favoring family reunification and skilled immigrants,
  2. rather than country quotas.
  3. imposed the 1st limits on immigration from the Western Hemisphere.
  4. Before then, Latin Americans had been allowed to enter the U.S. without many restrictions.

Since 1965, immigration has been dominated by Asia and Latin America born people, rather than Europe.

Laws since then have focused on refugees,

  • paving the way for entrance of Indochinese refugees fleeing war violence in the 1970s and
  • later including relief for other nationalities, including Chinese, Nicaraguans and Haitians.
  • 1990 law created the “temporary protective status” that has shielded immigrants, mainly Central Americans, from deportation to countries facing natural disasters, armed conflicts or other extraordinary conditions.


Immigration Reform and Control Act –

  • granted legalization to millions of unauthorized immigrants,
  • mainly from Latin America, who met certain conditions.
  • Also imposed sanctions on employers who hired unauthorized immigrants.

1996, 2002 and 2006

  • concerns about terrorism and
  • unauthorized immigration.

These measures

  1. emphasized border control,
  2. prioritized enforcement of laws on hiring immigrants and
  3. tightened admissions eligibility.


President Obama took executive action

to allow young adults who had been brought to the country illegally to apply for deportation relief and a work permit.


he expanded that program (known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA) and

  • set up a new program to offer similar benefits to some unauthorized-immigrant parents of U.S.-born children.
  • The DACA expansion and the new program (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, or DAPA) are
  • on hold because of a legal challenge by 26 states.

      Thanks POP

      DACA is not the reason why we need the Wall as these people are already in the country. And they had to be here before 2010.

      Yes, we need immigration changes, as well as enforcing them according to whatever would be the law. Unfortunately here in Ca, illegal aliens get preferred pseudo American citizenship status including driver licenses, welfare, free education, and free medical. They can also burn the American Flag while flying their Mexican Flag.

      This year California became a sanctuary state protecting Illegal Aliens that have committed and found guilty of felonies. I don't understand why a convicted felon would be allowed to stay in the country as they have already failed the citizenship test. :)

      We need to settle the problem of immigration once and for all. These "kids" are in their 40's. Forty -six percent of them don't speak English. Let's set the record straight and stop chain migration and the lottery system. Fix the problem and move on, but we need the wall.
