As of this writing, the DACA legislation appears to be in an awkward purgatory between being a done deal and the embarrassment of having to admit as much. Which leaves some sliver of time to comment before it has all congealed.
One of the facts that often seems to elude Donald Trump is that only his family voted for the personality of Donald Trump–and they’re probably jivin too. Most of his other 63 million supporters voted for either what he pledged to do and/or the America-first mindset in which he pledged to do it.
Unfortunately, that mindset seems as distant as white Texas at this point. Certainly Trump’s own kaleidoscopic political philosophy seems to have metastasized into the political consensus that foreign squatters should hold a monopoly on our government’s compassion.
In that vein it’s become morbidly tedious to hear It’s not their fault! No, actually it’s not our fault. We didn’t ask to be Mexico’s daycare drop zone. And we have no duty to continue, as those (now mostly adults) do have a duty to obey our law. Unlike the dreamers and their burglarizing parents, this is our only home. There are no foreign heads of state lobbying for our interests. We don’t even have domestic heads of state serving that role. Our nation in this country is our children’s only inheritance. Aliens don’t just get it for sake of wanting.
Though the wants of others weigh heavy on those who rely on them for votes or profit. And since the left has made (another) amnesty its migrant cornerstone, there’s no doubt ruthless republican negotiators could extract bitter concessions from helplessly salivating dems. And by God they apparently did: Pelosi conceded to share her Jarritos fruit punch with several conservative congressmen.
But beyond cases of colored water I have heard nothing that’s actually been yielded to the right in return. Trump offered a wan tribute to newly “powerful border security.” Any novel power in particular you can wave before your loyal constituents, Mr President? Or is it all just tacos in our time? Regardless, what does powerful border security even mean in context of legally importing the equivalent population of Montana every single year? In practice it means the left wants Pennsylvania and Trump will ruthlessly hold them to Colorado–and not a goddamned state more. All of which makes it astonishing to not hear a word about immediate and dramatic cuts in legal numbers being attached to these thus far nonexistent negotiations over DACA.
And legal immigration reduction is far from the only thing Trump could demand. Why do we still suffer a vast apparatus of anti-white affirmative action in government? Does the 14th Amendment mean everything except for what it says? End racial preferences. Then demand e-verify. Levy massive fines and prison sentences on employers who hire illegals. Cancel chain-migration. And abolish H1bs and the pristinely idiotic “diversity” lottery.
Have any of these topics even touched Trump’s tongue as it caressed Schumer’s oily scales? If so, he has remained uncharacteristically reserved in reporting on it.
The truth is the left wants a perpetual pipeline of sweet dreamers. Each more innocent than the last. Those yesterday brought those today who will bring those tomorrow. And always their innocence is matched only by our obligation. Your innocence and their obligations being items far beyond acceptable discussion.
But it’s not just a matter of the dreamers themselves. Because Mexicans on this side of the Rio Grande are endowed by their creator with the inalienable right to produce “Americans” from their womb. Each one being more American than those supremacists who merely paid for the maternity ward.
And as noted above–though never by the media or politicians–each dreamer eventually christened as a citizen becomes a fulcrum for further family chain migration. Between the children they will bear directly and the family “reunification” they will sponsor (who will in turn sponsor more themselves), every individual dreamer represents a vast migrant multiple in reality. Thus the frequently cited figure of 800,000 can be taken with the sincerity of a MS-13 philanthropy drive.
Finally, I suppose it goes without saying that practically all of these squatters and colonists will find their political home on the left. There they will be courted by primly traitorous politicians who will appeal for their affections with increasingly lurid commitments to white disembowelment. All of which should accumulate quite a heavy balance on the “no fucking way” side of the decision ledger. But the other side does have its own compelling case to make: Vete a la mierda, gringos.
