Dems Lying About Giving ‘Dreamers’ Citizenship, Again
Democrats must think the so-called “Dreamers” suffer memory loss because they are once again lying about delivering citizenship.
During the previous administration, President Obama created an unconstitutional program called the Deferred Action for Childhood (DACA) through an executive order. When Democrats held a majority in both houses of Congress and the White House, they deliberately failed to create a pathway to citizenship or deliver amnesty for DACA recipients. Now, they want these Dreamers to believe that Republicans are the only thing standing between them and U.S. citizenship. Ha!
“Democrats are vowing to move forward with immigration reform if presumptive nominee Joe Biden is elected president and the party also takes back the Senate in this fall’s elections,” The Hill reports. “The prospect would set up a bruising battle in Congress next year, one that Democrats shied away from in 2009 and 2010 after Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008 and Democrats expanded their Senate majority and controlled the House.”
This is a lie about Democrats future plans that the media is helping their preferred party push. Democrats want voters to believe that if they reelect them in November, and install Biden in the White House they will give citizenship to Dreamers. Nothing could be further from the truth. For proof of that just look at Democrats past actions.
The facts are that Democrats have played the Dreamers like a cheap fiddle over the years. Pointing fingers at a Republican minority in the early Obama-Biden years and later a GOP majority, Democrats sat on their hands. President Trump exposed the lie they had been telling Dreamers about Republicans quickly after ascending to the Oval Office.
With the full backing of his party, the President did not offer to provide just the 700,000 registered DACA recipients a road to permanent residence. Instead, President Trump offered up an immigration proposal to those 700,000 plus another 1.1 million illegal immigrants who qualify but did not apply, for a total of 1.8 million people.
Democrats scoffed at this offer from Trump in 2018, opting instead to lie and feed their radical base’s “Resist and Obstruct” lust that Democrats had fostered.
President Trump’s proposal for DACA recipients required immigration reform and a fully funded wall build for our southern border in exchange for what Democrats had been promising mostly Latino illegal immigrants for a decade. But because Trump offered it instead of Obama and Nancy Pelosi would rather die than give Trump a win, Democrats threw Dreamers under the bus while making bizarre claims that giving these mostly Latino immigrants permanent residence was “White Supremacy.”
The reality is that Democrats kept Latinos voting for them continually based on a promise of citizenship. Fulfilling it would release them to vote in line with their largely traditional conservative values.
Which brings us to the present, the recent dust-up over DACA is a calculated reaction to a recent announcement by President Trump. The U.S. Supreme Court issued a ruling that while it seemed to say the Trump Administration can not close DACA, in reality the Supreme Court just said this reason isn’t legal, but you can refile paperwork to eliminate DACA under different reasoning.
In the words of Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, who said of the White House’s first olive branch, “The president’s framework is generous and humane, while also being responsible.” Meaning because you could end up not getting anything.
“If you look at the Supreme Court ruling, they gave the president tremendous powers when they said that you could take in, in this case, 700,000 or so people, so they gave powers,” President Trump said about the Supreme Court ruling. “I’m going to do a big executive order. I have the power to do it as president and I’m going to make DACA a part of it. One of the aspects of the bill is going to be DACA. We are going to have a road to citizenship.”
Democrats once again find themselves in the precarious position of being caught making age-old promises to minorities that they repeatedly failed to keep. Biden and Obama had every opportunity to broker a deal while they were in power and deliver citizenship to Dreamers. The Biden-Obama administration could have leveraged the amnesty powers but chose not to. Democrats could have agreed to President Trump’s proposal to make 1.8 million illegal immigrants permanent residents but thumbed their noses. How many times can Democrat spit in the faces of Dreamers and tell them it’s raining?
