Illegal Immigration

Dreamers, Your Parent’s Choice is not America’s Problem.


Dreamers, your parent’s choice is not America’s problem.

We can no longer give incentives to break our laws.

I will undoubtedly catch a lot of flack for this opinion, but it needs to be shared. President Trump is expected to end the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program that was put in place in 2012. Former President Obama used an executive order to make the program happen despite blow back regarding it’s constitutionality. The program gives illegal immigrant children protection against deportation and allows them to stay in the country indefinitely. The ‘dreamers’ are simply required to re-apply for this status every few years.

House Speaker Paul Ryan is now trying to ‘save’ the DACA program saying that it is something that the congress should take care of instead of being cancelled by President Trump:

“I actually don’t think he should do that. I believe that this is something that Congress has to fix.”

Speaker Ryan has never been a friend to President Trump or his policies. Now, don’t get me wrong, he feigns friendliness at times, but there is no love lost there. This topic shows, once again, that the greatest roadblock for President Trump isn’t the Democrats, it’s the establishment GOP. DACA needs to go, and fast!

President Trump needs to end DACA.

Can I ask you a question? How many years have the Democrats and Republicans kicked the can down the road on immigration? Probably almost as many as they have on lowering the debt, yet here we are. The immigration problem isn’t going away as long as we keep making exemptions for people to break our laws. If you incentive people to break the law, then it won’t stop, ever.

Don’t misunderstand me. Emotionally, I struggle with the plight of the dreamer. I’m not some ‘heartless’ person as the left would have you believe. I want to see humanity as a whole succeed and prosper. I ‘get’ why the dreamers (and their parents) do what they do in coming to America. However, my understanding of ‘why’ doesn’t mean that I condone or support it. We have laws for a reason. Do it legally or don’t do it at all.

People that support DACA are angry about the possibility of it’s end. I have heard countless individuals saying, “It’s not my fault! I didn’t have a choice to come to America or not.” I don’t disagree with that statement. They probably didn’t have any choice in where they went with their parents. I fail, however, to see how that is the fault of the American taxpayer? Additionally, President Trump isn’t proposing the deportation of all the DACA participants immediately. He is just going to end the program. No new dreamers. Current ones are welcome to continue in that status through the end of their current term. There will be no re-up option.

So what can the dreamer do?

What does the end of DACA mean for the dreamer? Well, for starters, if you want to stay here, then you now know how much longer you have to get legal status. The clock has started. If you choose not to do so, no problem or hard feelings, just enjoy your trip home. We’ll even pay for it. Now don’t try to tell me that most dreamers are kids so they can’t really do all the work involved. Wrong. They may have been kids at one point, but now the majority of DACA participants are in their 20’s and 30’s, so they can figure it out.


This isn’t about the kids anymore, it’s about adults whining like they are still children. Being a resident of the greatest nation this world has ever known isn’t a right, it’s a privilege. There are countless individuals that move here legally every year. I welcome them with open arms. They did it the right way. Now the current dreamers have the same opportunity, if they choose to take it. If not, don’t blame me, don’t blame President Trump. You made your choice, and it wasn’t America.
