Amnesty Has Consequences: Conservatives Warn Against Making DACA Law

As is often overlooked in the biased, mainstream political discussion about the president’s DACA decision, the problem with Obama’s executive order on childhood arrivals is twofold. One, it was an unconstitutional power grab by a president who enjoyed using his “pen and phone” to sidestep Congress and essentially make law from the confines of the Oval Office. Two, it sent the wrong message to would-be illegal immigrants: As long as you behave in a certain way after arriving in the U.S., you too could be eligible for amnesty as long as you have a sympathetic liberal in the White House. There can be no doubt that Obama’s DACA decree contributed to the overwhelming surge of illegal immigration we saw in the years after.

By eliminating the DACA program last week, President Trump remedied the first problem. He was advised by Attorney General Jeff Sessions that the order was indefensible in court, and he was facing a legal challenge by the same states that managed to put DAPA – Obama’s later immigration order – on ice. Faced with the unenviable position of defending an executive order that went against everything his campaign was about, Trump had little choice but to scrap the program and restore the constitutional boundaries of the executive branch.

But now there’s that second problem. Yes, Congress and Trump are talking up the eager possibility of passing some kind of DACA-like legislation into law, but while that would at least put us back on solid constitutional ground, it doesn’t do anything to address the specific, underlying problem of granting amnesty to illegal immigrants. And that’s what many conservatives are sounding the alarm about this week.

In an interview with CBS, Sen. Tom Cotton said it would be a mistake to implement the kind of “immigration reform” the president and many Republican leaders have been talking about.

“It is going to open up a whole new category of people who could get legal status, namely their parents who violated the law by bringing them here, and it’s going to encourage other people to bring their children across the border in the future, which is a very dangerous thing to do,” Cotton said.

But even if we take the “dangling carrot” argument off the table, the potential for a DACE-esque piece of legislation to cost American taxpayers enormously cannot be ignored. Because while Obama’s order only covered 800,000 illegal immigrants, there’s no telling how many more would be shoved into the situation by overeager Democrats (and, frankly, plenty of rank-and-file Republicans). We could be looking at a scenario where amnesty is extended to nearly 3 million young arrivals, a watershed moment that would undoubtedly encourage immigration activists to pursue a broader amnesty law.

By any reckoning, this is NOT what Trump’s voters want, and it is NOT what this country needs in terms of expense, legality, or future immigration law.

We’re glad to see Obama’s unconstitutional order off the books, but that’s not the end of the debate. At least, we hope it isn’t.

First, TRUMP DID NOT ELIMINATE THE DACA PROGRAM... he announced no new applicants would be accepted and that those currently on DACA had 6 Months to register for a 2 Yr. Extension enabling ... Congress or 'HE' to take further action, to solve the DACA Problem...telling them in his own words " they have nothing to fear".  

How the HELL is that solving the problem... The President just kicked the can, on DACA and effectively illegal alien trafficking, down the road two more years; at the end of which time, one can 'wagger' based on previous historic actions, that He and Congress wil provide another extension, from deportation, to all those here under DACA... THIS IS A FORM OF AMNESTY.

Pres. Trump is playing with fire.... and he is about to get seriously burnt. In fact, his entire Presidency is about to take a very dangerous turn.  The people are waking up a major BETRAYAL by TRUMP.  Make no mistake the President is giving DACA recipeints, the majority who are well over 18yrs old, Amnesty.  No other discription defines what he has just done.  Pres. Trump just gave DACA recipients 2 more years of Amnesty, at the end of which time, he assured  DACA recipients that they have nothing to worry about.  Thus, signalling that should Congress not act, he would look favorably on more extensions... to deportation.

Make no mistake Pres. Trump just signaled it is ok to violate our Immigration law... that he favors and would sign a Bill giving DACA illegals 'Amnesty.' TRUMP IS FOR AMNESTY, no if, ands or buts, about it.  


What best describes what just happened is:

1) Obama's DACA Executive Order has been replaced or supplamented by Trump's Executive Order... The Constitution has been further damaged by this Administrations extension to the Obama doctrine of legislating from the Oval Office.

2) Illegal Aliens have been signaled to keep coming... as America is an open Borders Nation... incapable of regulating those entering the country ... a nation that is unable or unwilling to enforce its own laws.

3) The Trump Administration now owns the DACA problem...  Trump has officially joined with the policy of refusing to enforce the current laws... by extending and assuming the mandate of DACA... an unconstitutional act.  Trump is now officially part of the swamp.

I'd like to know what happened between the campaign trail and now.  He was so adamantly opposed to DACA and has now done a u-turn.  Ivanka/Jared?  Swapped favors?  

First, Ivanka and Jared.

2nd, the Generals fired all the MAGA people, K.T. McFarland and others less known.

The rope was noosed. Then thrown around his neck. Then slowly then faster, pulled in.

Now he works for them. The globalists. That's why McConnell and Lyin Ryan had nothing to worry and showed no worry. They knew what would happen.

Without someone next to him, like Bannon, Gorka, Sekulow, K.T. McFarland, to get him out of the noose, until he understood the depth of depravity that d.c., is, he floundered. It looks like a solution to him, the deal maker. IMHO, when you don't know the foundation, that is the result, the winds pull and you go with it. There is no doubt that he is brilliant in his skill set, but, again, without the foundation, it becomes a "just get a win" situation.

Tea Party Wishes You And Your Family
A Happy Thanksgiving 

Thanksgiving Proclamation, 3 October 1789

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor—and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be—That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks—for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation—for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war—for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed—for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted—for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions—to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually—to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed—to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord—To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us—and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

George Washington
President of the United States of America
