DACA Acronym: Democrats Against Citizens of America


Authored by Tami Jackson | on

DACA Dems

Chucky Schumer and archaic botoxed pal, San Fran Nan, huff and puff about the poor Dreamers. They demand that Trump and everyone who voted for Trump acknowledge that these poor young people, brought into our country by their LAW-BREAKING parents, be allowed to stay forever and ever.

The “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals”  so-called immigration policy established by Barack “I have a pen and a phone” Obama in June 2012. And as of 2017, 800K were enrolled in DACA. The first question that comes to mind is, if there are 800,000 aliens enrolled in DACA, why is Trump willing to give almost 2 million illegals a path to citizenship? AKA AMNESTY.

But no matter. Trump made his offer and didn’t even receive a counter-offer. The dang Dems just said, “No!”

Talking Heads tell us that Trump, like the Deal Maker he is, always begins negotiations with some slightly extreme first offer, then the counter measures and back and forth ensue. Well, reasonable business owners may bargain like that. Not so the now Socialist Democrats who are frantically in need of new people in their electorate plantation. Those earth-lovin’, Al Gore-channeling, Bernie-quoting Lefties don’t breed enough to have new voters. For one thing, the Leftie Women creatures are too busy berating real men to let any of the males close enough for baby-making gymnastics.

And another point: have you noticed that, after a years of screeching and anger, radical leftist women have faces frozen in a permanent scowl? Hmm. The better to ward off the despised Toxic Masculinity!

In the face of declining voter rolls, The Left are now fully beholden to all of the radical immigration groups, which, by the way, would not be allowed to exist in most other countries on earth.

How bad is it? Botox Babe Nancy faced DACA delinquents screaming at her during a Town Hall where she intended to soothe the malcontents with words of assurance that Democrats had their illegal backs. If you haven’t seen the video take a minute and check it out:

Those are not poor little children. Those are wretched, spoiled, law-breaking ingrates who collectively deserve an ass-whoopin’ and to be sent packing with their respective illegal parents. Pelosi put up with them because the Democratic Party desperately needs their vote. The bottom line is, the likes of Pelosi and Schumer and the rest of the Lefty Crew will side with illegals over legal citizens any day of the week.

They don’t care about Trump’s crumbs and whatever hardships Flyover Citizens endure. The Left’s one and only goal is grasping and maintaining power, at any and all costs. They don’t care about us Normals. They don’t care about the Constitution. They don’t care about America.

They, The Dems, care about their own scrawny necks and grabbing total control. Period.

Democrats, Business-first GOP Senators Block Trump’s Immigration Reforms


Authored by Neil Munro | 15 Feb 2018

60 Democrats and business-first establishment Republican Senators blocked President Donald Trump’s populist immigration reform agenda, pushing the hot-button topic towards the November election.

Democratic leader Chuck Schumer used his brief speech before the vote to blame President Donald Trump for the Democrats’ refusal to accept a reform-for-amnesty deal, saying:

President Trump created this problem by terminating the DACA program last August. Since then, President Trump has stood in the way over every single proposal that could become law …  President Trump has failed his test of leadership spectacularly.

The Trump-backed bill, led by Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, lost by 39 to 60, showcasing the political clout of the tacit alliance between pro-immigration progressive Democrats and roughly 12 business-first Republicans, plus at least one anti-amnesty Republican. Many business groups had pressured the GOP Senators to vote against the reforms, largely because Trump promised to cut future legal immigration levels.

The defeat may block pending Senate negotiations over the appropriation of $1.6 billion for the border-wall spending in 2018. The funding decision is slated for completion in late March.

The defeat also invites Trump to make immigration reform a central issue in the November election. White House officials have pushed that strategy in the last few days, noting that polls show that most Americans want immigration rules to favor Americans and their paychecks — instead of cheap-labor companies or immigrants.

The vote showed that several red-state Democrats facing the voters this November joined with the business-first Republicans to maintain wage-cutting immigration, and to preserve the unpopular visa-lottery and chain-migration programs.

Throughout the four-vote series of amendments, few Democrats crossed the line to vote for Trump’s pro-American proposals, while several Republicans backed the cheap-labor amnesty bills.

For example, only three Democrats voted against the Democrats’ main proposal — which would have suspended enforcement of immigration law for migrants who arrived before January 1 (a morning draft of the legislation said the deadline was June 30).

At least two of those Senators only voted no after the 41 GOP Senators had already successfully voted to block the proposal. They were New Mexico Sen. Tom Udall and California Sen. Kamala Harris. The final result was 47 to 54.

Three red-state Democratic Senators voted for the Grassley/Trump measure. They were North Dakota’s Heidi Heitkamp, Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly and West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin. Roughly 14 GOP Senators voted against the reform. 

Also, eight Republicans voted for the Democrats’ main amnesty bill, which was credited to the Democrat-dominated “Common Sense Coalition.” The amnesty GOP Senators were led by Sen. Lindsey Graham and Sen. Jeff Flake, but also included Maine Sen. Susan Collins, South Dakota Sen. Mike Rounds,  Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Tennesee Sen. Lamar Alexander, and Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson. The Democrats’ anti-enforcement measure was also supported by GOP Sen. Cory Gardner, who is actually the chairman of the GOP Senators’ 2018 election campaign.

Media outlets portrayed the GOP’s business-first Senators as “moderates” or “conservatives.”

The 14 GOP Senators who voted against the Grassley-Trump measure included South Dakota’s Sen. John Thune, who is a member of the leadership team with Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell. The no votes included Sen. Ted Cruz, who said earlier he would oppose it because it endorsed an amnesty along with immigration reforms.

The list of 14 Senators also included several pro-amnesty Senators — Collins, Flake, and Murkowski — plus a series of business-leaning Senators, including Sens. Ben Sasse, John Thune, John Barrasso and Mike Enzi from Wyoming, Mike Lee from Utah, Jerry Moran from Kansas, Steve Daines from Montana, and John Kennedy from Lousiana.

Four GOP Senators — Flake, Gardner, Graham, Murkowski — also voted yes for another amnesty bill drafted by Democratic Sen. Chris Coons and GOP Sen. John McCain. That bill was defeated 47 to 52. Sen. Joe Manchin, a red-state Democrat who faces the voters in November, vote against the Coons-McCain giveaway.

Several of the Schumer-allied, pro-amnesty GOP Senators covered their pro-amnesty votes by also voting for the Grassley measure once it was clear that it would fail. They included Alexander, Gardner, Graham, Isakson, and Rounds.

Nearly all Democratic Senators voted against a proposal by GOP Sen. Toomey to financially penalize sanctuary cities. The amendment got 54 votes, which kept it six votes below the 60-vote threshold. Forty-seven Democrats voted against sanctuary-city penalties.

Even without the new laws from Congress, Trump can continue to enforce immigration laws, punish employers for hiring illegals and update visa and security rules to exclude dangerous migrants.

Many polls show that Trump’s 2016 immigration policies are very popular in the polling booth. His proposed amnesty for 1.8 million illegals gets high scores in business-funded polls but is unlikely to shift any votes into the GOP column in November.

Immigration polls which ask people to pick a priority, or to decide which options are fair, show that voters in the polling booth put a high priority on helping their families and fellow nationals get decent jobs in a high-tech, high-immigrationlow-wage economy. Those results are very different from the “Nation of Immigrants” polls which are funded by CEOs and progressives, and which pressure Americans to say they welcome migrants.

Four million Americans turn 18 each year and begin looking for good jobs in the free market.

But the federal government inflates the supply of new labor by annually accepting roughly 1.1 million new legal immigrants, by providing work-permits to roughly 3 million resident foreigners, and by doing little to block the employment of roughly 8 million illegal immigrants.

The Washington-imposed economic policy of economic growth via mass-immigration floods the market with foreign laborspikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. It also drives up real estate priceswidens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions.

About Those DACA Recipients: Call Them Lawbreakers, Not Dreamers


Authored by Tami Jackson | on

Last night I ended my show with a rant about DACA and Dreamers. My earlier guest, Timothy Shea, suggested I publish my thoughts. He seemed to think my stream of consciousness soliloquy on illegal v. legal immigration might be of interest to people at large. So here goes! “My Rant” aka “Tami Unplugged!”

_____________________________

I have a little something to get off my chest. I am fit to be tied about this whole thing with DACA and Dreamers.

DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

The latest immigration bill that Trump will support would allow 1.8 million “Dreamers” to stay and pursue a path to citizenship. Think of that — 1.8 million.

I believe there are about 690,000 that should have been included, but for some reason it’s been bumped up to the 1.8 million. Granted, Trump wants the wall, and he wants to end chain immigration and the visa lottery. That’s admirable. We need to do that. You’re not a country if you don’t have enforceable borders.

I am absolutely opposed to calling these people “Dreamers.” 

That romanticizes what they really are: unlawful, illegal immigrants. Period.

I do feel bad that they were brought here by their law-breaking parents. But ever heard the adage 2 wrongs don’t make a right? Absolutely true. They might have been brought here by their law-breaking parents, but we don’t fix that by breaking the law continually and allowing them to remain here without a legal process.

No matter what you say and how much empathy you whip up, the simple fact remains that these people are here in our country illegally.

If — and that’s a big if— they REALLY want to be Americans, and by want to be Americans, I don’t mean conning to get all the free stuff, free healthcare possible. They are trespassing. They absolutely are.

If they entered your home without asking, sat down on your couch, starting watching your TV, you’d be calling the police. You’d be asking, “Who are you? Why are you in our home?” 

If they told you, “It’s not safe where we live. We don’t have money where we live. There isn’t a way to make money. And we don’t have healthcare and schools where we live. So we thought we’d come here because you have a safe home, there’s a school next door. This is a good place to be. We think we’ll just stay here.”

Nobody would allow that! Yet we allow it here in the United States of America.😠

If they really want to be Americans, they should go home and begin the process that millions before them have undergone. They should come here legally. They should be productive and NOT take free stuff. They should learn English and eagerly assimilate into America’s culture. That means no demanding we celebrate Cinco de Mayo, which is pretty much a fake holiday that is not even celebrated, or little celebrated in Mexico.👍

I talk a lot about being the granddaughter of legal Norwegian immigrants. I’m proud of that. I’m proud of my Norwegian heritage. I don’t begrudge anyone being proud of their heritage. That’s part of what makes us a fantastic nation, especially if we say we’re Americans first.

My Grandpa Ole came from Norway by himself at age 15. Let me repeat that: Grandpa Ole came from Norway by himself at age 15. He was a dreamer. He dreamed of making a life for himself in America

He had an aunt to stay with while he attended a one room school house so he could learn English and all other subjects necessary to take the test to become a Naturalized citizen. My grandpa Ole would not see any of his family in Norway for 40 years! But he was willing to make that sacrifice to be an American.

I learned my work ethic from my grandparents, who worked hard six days a week, always taking one day off for church.

I know some Norwegian because I implored Grandpa to speak with me. More often than not he would remind me we were Americans and should speak English.

I have other friends with tremendous immigration stories. Stories of hardships endured so they could be Americans.

For instance the Kellers who came from New Zealand. Mr. Keller had been captured and put in a concentration camp in the South Pacific during World War II. He was liberated by Americans. He dreamed of living in America and brought his entire family years later. It took two years of hardship, but they arrived and became naturalized citizens. He spoke so much about what they owed this country that he four boys all joined the military when they were old enough: two joined the Navy, two joined the Marines.

THAT’s an immigration story.

The point being, we are a nation of law keepers, not law breakersIllegal entrance is the antithesis of a Constitutional Republic that is a nation of LAWS.

My Grandpa had a dream that his children and grandchildren would be good, hardworking Americans.

Calling DACA folks Dreamers cheapens the sacrifices made by millions of legal immigrants to this great nation.

I have a dream that I don’t ever have to push 1 for English in my own country. I have a dream that American kids won’t be punished for wearing t-shirts with American flags or the Second Amendment. That’s the kind of dreams I have. And I hope you join me in supporting that dream.
