    Congress struggles to come up with a fix for 'Dreamers'

    Congress struggles to come up with a fix for 'Dreamers'

    It has been four weeks since President Trump gave Congress a six-month deadline to figure out a solution for immigrants in the U.S. illegally who had been protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. An estimated one-fourth of the program’s 800,000 recipients live in California.


    A hearing Tuesday illustrated just how far lawmakers are from a deal, with members of the president’s own party asking for guidance on a fix.


    The highest-ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, urged colleagues to pass a piecemeal fix that focuses on so-called Dreamers before DACA officially ends. Trump has said lawmakers have until March 5 to get something done before DACA beneficiaries start losing deportation protections and the ability to work legally in the country.


    “Every day that we fail to act means one more day that hundreds of thousands of Dreamers... are forced to live with this cloud hanging over them,” Feinstein said.

    A California medical school student implored senators Tuesday to provide a pathway for citizenship for people like her who came to the country illegally as children.


    “DACA has allowed us to lead almost normal lives and give back to our communities,” said Denisse Rojas Marquez, 28, of Fremont. “The fate of 800,000 individuals rests in your hands and we desperately need your help.”


    Beside her at the witness table was a man whose mother-in-law was raped and killed by a young immigrant. He said any path to a legal status for Dreamers, as the group is often called, is a slippery slope to amnesty.


    Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) read aloud some Trump tweets about DACA and a border wall, and suggested what the president wants “reads like a laundry list of comprehensive immigration reform.” Such a plan, which Democrats and some Republicans favor, has been tried repeatedly over the last decade but has never gotten far.

    Congress should not be doing anything for DACA and need be focusing on the American people and do what they were elected to do; tax reform, Obamacare repeal, border wall and immigration enforcement.

    YOUR JOB IS ENFORCE OUR LAWS AND DEPORT THEM ALL

    YOUR JOB IS END BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP

    YOUR JOB IS TURN THEM RIGHT BACK AROUND AT THE BORDER

    YOU JOB IS TO FUND AND BUILD THE WALL

    YOUR JOB IS CUT OFF ALL TAXPAYER FUNDED BENEFITS INCLUDING SCHOOL AND HEALTHCARE TO ILLEGAL ALIENS

    YOUR JOB IS DEEM ALL DRIVER'S LICENSE NULL & VOID ISSUED TO ILLEGAL ALIENS

    YOUR JOB IS TO WORK FOR WHAT IS BEST FOR AMERICAN'S AND OUR COUNTRY

    YOU ARE NOT THE CONGRESS FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD OR THEIR PEOPLE!!

    DO NOT DO THIS TO OUR COUNTRY...THINK OF OUR FUTURE, OUR DEBT, OVERPOPULATION, MORE GHETTOS, MORE WELFARE, MORE DISEASES, MORE CRIME, MORE OVERCROWDED SCHOOLS, JAILS, PRISONS, OUR DEPLETED RESOURCES!

    The Democrats and RINOS, as an expedient, may agree to stricter controls on immigration and more aggressive efforts to stop illegal immigration, but at the first opportunity they will pass legislation to nullify those policies.

    That is because the great majority of them intentionally want to forever change the ethnic composition of the American people because third world populations are ignorant and will forever vote for unlimited government power and a socialistic economic system. Those are the goals of the powerful globalists who drive politics.

    For the great majority of people their politics is cultural. Literally they learn their politics on daddy’s knee.

    Anything that starts out as a “compromise” will soon and ultimately be total capitulation.

    Patriot, keep up intense pressure on Trump, any backing down will be betrayal of us. Keep up the pressure; it is the only chance we have. Call the White House every day. No Amnesty of any type for anyone, the DACA (nightmare) ends with no concessions. No concessions to get the wall built. Make E-verify mandatory.

    White House comments line 202 456 1111, but sometimes you can’t get through, so use 202 456 1414 and ask to make a comment.
