    Should we really have DACA kids ruling over us in Congress? The press thinks so.

    Should we really have DACA kids ruling over us in Congress?

    The press thinks so. It's bucking for a law change to let DREAMers "serve" in Congress.

    Want a gander at some one-sided reporting?

    Take a look at what the normally centrist Roll Call has cranked out, openly advocating for congressional positions for DACA kids, who, along with other foreign nationals, are prohibited by law from assuming positions of governance in the federal government. Legal foreigners in Congress are required by law to be taking steps, at least, toward U.S. citizenship. DACA kids, who are here illegally but have the special privileges of DACA that other illegal aliens don't have, are not.
    "I would call that a WTF moment," he said. "It's mean-spirited. DACA recipients have overcome challenges. They have grit and tenacity and the skill sets needed to work on Capitol Hill. It's not only a detriment to these folks who have public service careers closed off to them, it's a detriment to the country."
    Ah, service! We should be slavering for their "public service," or else. Roll Call pours on the glurge, effectively telling us we all owe it to DACA recipients to allow them to work in Congress, changing the "mean-spirited" law, and all based on their campaign work to elect Democrats. Here's the actual rationale given by Roll Call for changing the law to allow DACA kids to lord it over us — or, as the writer puts it, "serve" — in Congress:
    Perez had spent months knocking on doors and speaking to voters across south Phoenix and Mesa. She had deep roots in the 9th District, where she'd lived since she was 4 years old.
    She was knowledgeable about policy and had a track record of success working behind the scenes for the Phoenix City Council — from the installation of a new dog park to an ordinance requiring equal pay for women in the city.
    No word on whether she's trying to become a citizen legally, the way immigrants do, applying for a green card from her home country. Roll Call didn't ask.
    It just reported that because she campaigned to elect a Democrat, a U.S. law should now be changed to allow her to be the arms and legs of the congressional office, accommodating her every wish as her political spoil. Wow.
    Not one word about why the law might be a good idea from the other side. Reporting is supposed to be about giving two sides, maybe even a nod to two sides. No effort at all was exerted to find out anything about why that "mean-spirited" law might have been put in place to keep foreigners out of the reach of U.S. sovereign power.
    Career congressional staff are invisible, yet very powerful people, often more powerful than the congresspeople they purport to represent. They often have their own interests and agendas. And, as Roll Call explained in its syrupy lobbying piece to give this DACA kid political power over us, the DACA recipient had lots of experience in governing U.S. citizens with that dog park and equal pay for women in the city of Phoenix.
    Every political decision involves choosing one set of interests over another. For a foreigner to be doing it in the supposedly free United States, ruling against some U.S. citizen in whatever her decisions were, is intolerable.
    What's more, that foreign citizenship ought to exclude every foreigner from security clearances and secret briefings, given the pressure such foreign nationals could be under from their countries of citizenship. Consider also that many DACA kids are unassimilated aliens who haven't even learned English. English, as it turns out, is not even a requirement for DACA qualification. Should those people, hired by some congressional Democrat, be making decisions for us? The DACA cutoff age is 16, so plenty of such recipients not only haven't bothered to master English (you can tell this by the foreign language press releases from DACA kids giving testimony by activist groups), but also are loyal to their home countries and view a U.S. residency as a pass for bennies or, in some cases, political power. Many openly wave the Mexican flag in their calls for amnesty. More important, foreign nationals of some countries are uniquely susceptible to pressure from their countries of citizenship to advance those foreign countries' interests. You can bet that a Chinese national under protection through the DACA program would be hearing from the Chinese government about duties to the motherland — and maybe a few threats about what will happen to his relatives if he doesn't play ball. I've seen the Mexican government apply pressure to its nationals, too, in Los Angeles.
    That reality is no match for the gimme-gimme-gimme attitude of some politically active DACA recipients, who shouldn't even be allowed to campaign here as non-citizens. (It's a jail time offense in Mexico for a foreign national to be campaigning in Mexican elections.) But don't count on the press to report it. I suspect that Roll Call is just the tip of the iceberg on this one-sided reporting, and already the New York Times is making calls to try to outdo Roll Call with the sob stories in coming days.

    Send them back to go "rule" over their own government!

    They are here illegally whether they criminally trespassed over our border 30 seconds ago or 30 years ago.

    Ship them out!

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    Kamala Harris Wants Illegals to Run Congress


    Published 12 hours ago on
    Apr 4, 2019
    By Jose Nino


    Kamala Harris is doubling down on her open borders advocacy.
    Politico reported that on April 3, 2019 the 2020 presidential contender introduced legislation that would allow Dreamers to work as staffers or interns in Congress.
    This is a move that parallels Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke’s recent strategies to curry favor with the ever-growing Hispanic demographic.
    Harris’ bill lifts a present ban on Dreamers working in Congress. Her legislative push comes after recent trips to Nevada and Texas, two states with large Hispanic segments.
    The California Senator has gone as far as to distribute headsets at rallies to translate her speeches into Spanish, a clear attempt to steal O’Rourke’s present thunder.
    With Trump securing $1 billion in wall funding, the immigration issue is only getting more heated. Democrats are positioning themselves as the more “humane” alternative to Trump’s policies by offering pathways to citizenship for Dreamers, illegal aliens who arrived to the U.S. as children.
    Trending: CONFIRMED: Peter Strzok Lied To Congress About Texting From A Secure Area
    Hundreds of thousands of DACA recipients have already been granted permits to work legally in the United States, and now they are upping the demands by calling for pathways to citizenship.
    In a statement, Harris said “The giant sign outside my office says ‘DREAMers Welcome Here’ because we know and value the contributions that these young people have made to their communities.”
    From these latest moves, it looks like immigration will be the biggest issue in 2020 for both parties.
    BLP reported that immigration is the number #1 issue for GOP voters, but for different reasons. These voters fear that mass migration could dramatically alter the socio-economic environment of America.
    Michelle Malkin warned about the perils of both legal and illegal immigration at CPAC as well, and even called out Republican business interests for promoting immigration expansion.
    Certain conservative outlets like the Red Elephants broke down how expedited citizenship programs could create a significant voting bloc that would favor Democrats by 2050 and beyond.
    By then, the immigrant ghettoes and social unraveling we are already seeing in Europe could become a reality in America, and possibly at a much larger scale.
    Democrats are starting to recognize this demographic advantage and are pushing the pathway to citizenship angle as much as possible.
    For this reason, many grassroots supporters of the Trump administration worry about Jared Kushner’s growing influence in immigration policymaking.
    The pathway to citizenship route could be the Democrat’s go-to strategy to secure power in future elections.
