Threatening to Leave!
Manny is at the Stove
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Sunday, February 11, 2018. Our pious friend, Mantis Manny, is at the stove this morning creating fabulous cheesy scrambled eggs for our enjoyment. I'm in front of a blender preparing spicy Bloody Marys to add to the fun. Manny and I are asking for the pleasure of your company this morning. The Dreamers have threatened Congress, and the nature of the threat is unbelievable. Please hurry over to enjoy breakfast and chat about the ridiculous. We hope to see you soon.
The Drums are Beating
to evenThanks so much for joining us this morning. I just heard that the Dreamers have threatened Congress. The threat goes like this, "If no DACA deal is reached, we are leaving the country." Does that sound like a threat to you? It doesn't to me. The Dreamers are here illegally last I heard. We always had strict immigration laws in place to regulate an orderly migration by individuals seeking to live and work here. The Dreamers' parents didn't obey the law. They brought their children here, because hopping over a wall was faster than applying for a visa. Now the so-called DACA kids have kids of their own. Once they were old enough to understand their precarious situation, they chose to stay anyway. They were, no doubt, aided and abetted by the federal government, because somewhere along the way, the Feds decided to take the law into their own hands. That particular disease spread, and states and cities decided to ignore the law, as well. The Dreamers went on living their lives. Many of them got an education. Some of them decided not to bother learning the language. Still they persisted in their desire to stay, knowing full well that they were here illegally. As time went on, things began to change. Those here illegally began to feel entitled, and that brings us to where we are today,
What is Just?
I heard illegal aliens on CNN declare that they will leave America as soon as possible if DACA isn't passed. That is a solution even if DACA is passed. Not all Dreamers come from depressed or dangerous countries. Some of the Dreamers have more than one country to return to if they are not satisfied with the deal that has yet to be passed. If this were a normal world, where common sense ruled the day, the Dreamers would leave their empty threats at the border. They really don't have any leverage. They are not in a position to demand anything. They are here illegally regardless of how they got here, and it is time to face the situation. They should keep in mind that there are thousands of immigrants just like themselves who came here legally. If I applied for entry to the United States and followed the rules, my sympathies would not lie with the Dreamers. I'm being truthful, which is not in vogue these days. I find the Dreamers fully blown sense of entitlement maddening. They are in a pickle, no doubt, but their anger is misplaced. Their parents put them in this mess, and many of these "not kids anymore" are doing the exact same thing to their children. This cycle has to end, and it will end if the Democrats stop using the Dreamers for political gain.
There is no Magic Wand
If the DACA deal is to pass, the Democrats have to stop all the histrionics, simmer down and agree to build the wall. President Trump has offered the Dreamers a jackpot of a deal. He has tripled the number of Dreamers eligible for a path to citizenship. Perhaps the Dreamers would be aware of this if our news media wasn't so corrupted. President Trump has a solution to a problem that previous administrations have been unable or unwilling to fix. His solution is compassionate and generous.
Regardless of where you stand on this issue, we can't let this problem fester and grow bigger. We have to fix it now, because if we don't, we never will. The solution goes hand in hand with protecting the rest of America. We need a wall. We need very strong border enforcement. We need to rid our nation of gangs like MS 13. We need to stop the flow of drugs into our country by the Mexican cartels. We need to put an end to sanctuary states and cities.We have to keep terrorists, thugs and murderers out, and if they are here already, we need to throw them out.
So Dreamers, stop demanding and start hoping for a common sense solution to a growing problem And if this deal goes through, and it should, learn the language, respect the flag and realize that living legally in America as a lawful and contributing citizen is a precious gift, not an entitlement.
The moment I wake up
The second I stretch my wings
I say a little pray for you...
