For those who refused to surrender their critical thinking skills after 2008, DACA was never about saving a handful of wrongfully persecuted “Dreamers” from the xenophobic pitchforks of Right Wingers. It was and still is about shamelessly exploiting the plight of roughly 800,000 adolescent illegals, a majority of which are now adults, to justify cultivating an additional 3.2 million relatives: i.e., an untapped expanse of eager Democratic voters. In fact, according to a campaign memo co-authored by Hillary’s former Communications Director, Jennifer Palmier openly admits “the Democratic Party needs to protect illegal immigrants brought here by DACA in order to ensure those additional votes”; which, of course, was the unwavering contention of conservatives all along despite the media’s exhaustive efforts to paint such allegations as heartless and false. Even if “Donald Trump the White Supremacist” allowed all DACA families to remain and prosper in the United States, contingent upon forever relinquishing their right to vote as recompense for their illegal status, Democrats would still cry injustice despite his willingness to pardon their incontrovertible crimes so they could pursue a better life without fear of arrest or deportation.
Once you factor in the realization 40% of Hillary’s votes came from states which rejected Voter ID laws and currently house over 5 million illegal immigrants of voting age – many of whom harbor negative, exploitative or even hostile views towards this country – it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize the Democratic Party has almost zero regard for America’s sovereignty, ideological and fiscal survival, let alone the rule of law. If over a century of immigrants from across the globe managed to respect our borders and fulfill the naturalization requirements under the most dire circumstances, surely a handful of “dreamers” and their tailgate-crashing relatives can understand the need for a wall, if not a moment of silence for those Americans denied the same level of impunity, economic entitlement, by “racist” Central and South American governments. That’s right…who needs easy lighting briquets when U.S. bureaucrats will provide a bonfire burning the effigy of American gullibility.
It is common knowledge, except for millennial marshmallows inviting themselves to a free lunch, the Marxist minions of cultural suicide have conspired for decades to undermine our immigration statutes by encouraging mass migration, shielding trespassers from prosecution and even giving preferential treatment to those perpetrators over actual citizens; including those individuals with extensive records or radical associations. And because victimization indoctrination is the affirmative action appetizer professional propagandists, progressives have fabricated a humanitarian crisis to pull on the heart strings of America and thus justify their reckless, if not emphatically criminal behavior. DACA, in all its misappropriated glory, is little more than an extension of this inexcusable endeavor. Not only is Obama’s electoral trafficking program completely unconstitutional, as recently confirmed by the Supreme Court because it was never ratified by Congress and his executive order violates existing immigration law, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals futile attempt to force President Trump to honor such an abusive, non-binding farce is the equivalent of a slumlord decreeing every new tenant must sleep in the previous owner’s pissed stained sheets.
Until these spiteful judicial obstructionists are put on trial and impeached for their pronounced abuse of power, choosing to collude with pandering plaintiffs by placing shared partisan hatred over legal precedent, the President should either openly disregard and/or bypass these obscene rulings which are completely antithetical to any sense of moral obligation. After all, the sheer level of lawlessness prevalent in the Obama administration would make such a principled stance, dare I say, seem revolutionary. With the unapologetic assistance and/or convenient indifference of the DOJ and FBI, Obama’s regime was able to auction off nuclear grade uranium to a known historical adversary, finance Islamic terrorism with unauthorized ransom payments, absolve Hillary’s countless transgressions with admitted preferential treatment, instruct DHS agents to distribute millions of green cards to unvetted recipients despite federal court injunctions, weaponize the IRS to target conservatives, empower the BLM to terrorize ranchers or needlessly confiscate state/private lands, and validate a knowingly fake dossier used as justification to wiretap a Presidential candidate for the first time in U.S. history, the crime syndicate now known as the former party of JFK could use a double dose of reality, better known as, accountability.
The growing crescendo to end DACA and to build a wall are both justifiable and crucial to restoring responsible immigration. However, even as a staunch conservative who has advocated swift action for years, desire doesn’t always dictate with the complexities of legislative reform. It is true, within several months, DACA will expire on its own accord without further intervention. And yes, I’m confidently assuming the Supreme Court will once again vacant the 9th Circuit’s newest display of masturbatory lunacy. Unfortunately, erecting a border edifice over 2,000 miles by navigating between three separate, polarized but intertwined branches of government is not nearly as simple as many mistakenly assume. While it is true the cost of constructing a wall pales in comparison to the annual $100 billion price tag of harboring approximately 15 million illegal immigrants, funding requires Congressional approval. Republicans hold but a narrow 51-49 advantage in the Senate and a number of GOP Senators – McCain, Flake, Collins, and Murkowski to name but a few – have expressed resistance to the idea of a border wall, let alone any agreement/compromise that doesn’t include explicit protecting “dreamers; that political manifestation which turns logic, rightfully enforcing existing immigration laws, into genocidal hyperbole on the five o’clock news.
Therefore, in the face of rapidly deteriorating circumstances and the increasingly anxious expectations of his supporters, I believe Donald Trump has but two viable options…
1) Allow DACA to expire in March and seek funding for the wall elsewhere. As much as I’d love to see a modest “border tax” on all travelers entering from south of the border, as well as imposing duties on money transfers sent to these respective countries, revenue changes are still incumbent upon Congressional approval. Unless the GOP is willing to wait for the conclusion of the 2018 mid-term elections, which could either bolster their advantage or negate it entirely, a more pro-active solution is required. If the President really wanted to push the proverbial envelope, he could stockpile funds “donated” from foreign governments in exchange for technology allowances or military assurances. Or, he could personally solicit money from private entities – corporations, wealthy individuals, endowments – that have a personal interest in contributing to enhanced border security. Either war, success is far from guaranteed. Luckily, the fact $1.6 billion was specifically earmarked for initial construction in the recent temporary spending bill is a good sign the wall will be built one way or another.
2) Use the DNC’s insistence upon saving DACA to barter greater concessions. Many Republicans have reiterated their support for universal Voter ID, as well as ending the destructive aftermath of chain immigration and the Lottery system. Of course, such prudent measures threaten the left’s long-term goal of permanent political supremacy through foreign demographic superiority. If the President really wanted to put Democrats on the spot, he could publicly challenge their supposed unconditional support for “dreamers”; those political props used by media pundits to discredit our laws and dehumanize critics. If Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi refused to capitulate, Trump could appeal to Latinos directly to vocally demand a compromise. Likewise, if he failed, at least the President could say he earnestly tried to reach a resolution. The one caveat I would insist upon in any potential deal is that no new “dreamer” designations could be made and those approved will applications currently residing in this country must be fully vetted, regularly monitored and required to abide by all laws in order to avoid deportation. Furthermore, because I have no doubt the next Democrat elected to the White House would immediately seek a “tear down that wall” Kodak moment etched into the annals of liberal academia, the completed fence could be officially designated the property of a private organization/company; a binding agreement granting exclusive rights for 25 or perhaps even 50 years under the prerequisite of actively monitoring/maintaining border security by working in conjunction with federal immigration agents and state law enforcement.
Regardless of the inherent difficulties or inevitable political posturing, Donald Trump did campaign on the absolute necessity of building a wall. That being said, those concerned spectators demanding immediate action must realize such a daunting and politically volatile endeavor is a collective process, not a unilateral whim. Truly, the sheer number of variables and conflicting interests involved is dizzying to the most accomplished statesman. Even though we may all concur DACA represents a tangible threat to the legitimacy of our laws and the integrity of our elections, that protecting our border in a post 9/11, caustically anti-American world is both ethical and our sovereign right, the Checks and Balances bestowed upon our Constitutional Republic requires an equally reverent level of respect; no matter how much progressives are willing to circumvent their sworn duty, if not any remaining vestiges of personal credibility.
Before “We the People” vow to abandon arguably the most persecuted and daring President in our history, a man whose family has withstood an endless barrage of hateful epithets and criminal partisan schemes to confront a corrupt ruling class, let us remember that unity – unrelenting faith in the face of the most trying circumstances – and not ultimatums, is what nurtures success. How many angry voters lamenting the repeated failed attempts to repeal Obamacare, myself included, actually predicated a sweeping tax bill would essentially remove the individual mandate and thus cripple Barack Obama’s Trojan horse intended to usher in an eventual single-payer system? The more plotting leftists know Donald Trump is left isolated with little flexibility or recourse, the more their unscrupulous ranks will feel compelled to sabotage his aspirations with the added leverage of our discontent. Honestly, what other Republican nominee would have achieved half as much, let alone survived the incessant onslaught of public humiliation, media duplicity and unprecedented degree of Deep State collusion? Patience isn’t a virtue because fear demands immediate reassurances from the unforeseeable means of achieving closure. Patience is often the conscious revelation that one must open a new door to remove the greatest obstacle hindering progress: our closed minds.
