…..no matter how many times liberals lie to you and tell you they are. It’s not a concept cooked up by conservatives, it’s the law.
Eric Holder lectures us dumb hayseeds on the on what a Dreamer is….and he is wrong.
But Eric Holder nevertheless gets it wrong, as he is wont to do. “I’m calling on all Americans to see and treat dreamers as our own,” he writes, “because they are our own.” These individuals “should not be defined by their immigration status,” he claims. He quotes President Obama, who says that the dreamers are Americans “in their hearts, in their minds, in every single way but one: on paper.”
Well, gee, thanks for pointing out the obvious, professor.
Indeed, Obama gets it right: the dreamers are not Americans “on paper,” and so in that one profoundly critical way they are not Americans at all. That was the point of DACA in the first place: to offer deferred deportation to non-Americans. Natural-born and naturalized citizens of the United States were not the ones who took advantage of Obama’s executive order: it was illegal immigrants, non-citizens, that did so. It is not Trump who “defined them by their immigration status.” It was Obama.
It is grating to have to point this out, though the deficiencies of our immigration debate tend to make it necessary to do so. We are, after all, a nation; as a nation we are composed primarily of a body politic made up of citizens. There are a great many among us who desire, in various incoherent ways, to do away with such distinctions—people who believe that simply arriving here, through whatever means, should qualify one for citizenship. Such a policy would essentially do away with the idea of citizenship altogether, rendering our country’s immigration policy to be the legislative equivalent of John Lennon’s turgid “Imagine.” Keep reading….
Now, with President Obama’s unconstitutional DACA being eliminated, we see yet another example of masks falling. Many republicans will oppose the unlawful Obama DACA program being removed. This reality only amplifies the signs the Big Ugly confrontation is needed more than ever. It’s President Trump against a unified DC system.
And the masks come off.
Ryan had said during a radio interview on Friday that he didn’t think the president should terminate DACA, and that Congress should act on the issue.
“My hope is that as part of this process we can work on a way to deal with this issue and solve it through legislation, which is the right way to do it and the constitutional way to do it,” Rubio told CNN in June.
Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch joined Ryan in cautioning Trump against rolling back the program.
There is one political enterprise within Washington DC and national politics. There is only one enterprise. That enterprise is the UniParty. There is only one political party in Washington DC, with two internal caucuses – Republicans and Democrats. Keep reading…
As for Rubios claim that legislation is the “right way and constitutional way” to fix the issue, where was the legislation when Obama used his executive order to implement the program in the first place? Oh, that’s right, the conservative base doesn’t want amnesty so they lied and opposed DACA with a wink and a nod to Obama to go ahead with his liberal agenda.
There is no other explanation for their current position.

Thought about this quote after watching this video. Don’t know about the long legs but she certainly has brains, not bad on the eyes either. h/t Ninety Milesby jeffli6 with no comments yet
Sometimes the truth is painful and the answers are few.
AFRICA is giving nothing to anyone outside Africa — apart from AIDS and new diseases. Even as we see African states refusing to take action to restore something resembling civilization in Zimbabwe, the Begging bowl for Ethiopia is being passed around to us out of Africa, yet again. It is nearly 25 years since the famous Feed The World campaign began in Ethiopia, and in that time Ethiopia’s population has grown from 33.5 million to 78+ million today. So, why on earth should I do anything to encourage further catastrophic demographic growth in that country? Where is the logic?
Sorry. My conscience has toured this territory on foot and financially. Unlike most of you, I have been to Ethiopia; like most of you, I have stumped up the loot to charities to stop starvation there. The wide-eyed boy-child we saved, 20 years or so ago, is now a low IQ, AK 47-bearing moron, siring children whenever the whim takes him and blaming the world because he is uneducated, poor and left behind.

You don’t get to play in the sand box, you have no legal say in Texas law.
Mexico filed an affidavit Monday in support of a lawsuit against the implementation of a Texas law to punish sanctuary cities and allow police officers to inquire about the immigration status of someone they have arrested or detained.
The Mexican government said in a statement that the law could increase racial discrimination and create an environment of persecution.
The statement said that the number of calls to the center for information and assistance for Mexicans in Texas in May and June increased 678 percent compared to the year prior. This is reflexive of the uncertainty and “anguish” that the Mexican community in Texas has felt due to the law.
If you are calling the the center for information for assistance you are probably looking for ways around the law because you are here illegally. Mexico is more worried about their citizens who are in the US illegally than they are about the ones that are still in Mexico, any body else see a problem with that?by jeffli6 with no comments yet
A few thoughts on immigration, legal and illegal, to these United States.
Americans have been through hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, fires, and other natural disasters since before and after America became a nation. Americans have been through wars both foreign and domestic, they have been through depressions, bank failures, a market crash, and other economic turmoils. Through all of the struggles America and it’s people became the most prosperous on the planet.
Americans built an industrial giant, private business both large and small have provided the American people a means to chase their dreams if you’re willing to work for it. America has thousands of cities and towns with infrastructure built over decades for the convenience of it’s population. Generations of Americans have had a part in building this country. Your parents, grandparents, and their grand parents have their imprint on what this country is, and it didn’t come easy or cheap.
Immigrants, (legal or illegal), are leaving their home land to take advantage of what America has become. They’re leaving their homelands because their ancestors weren’t willing or able to build what America has. They aren’t willing to stay and make their countries better, they want to take a short cut and reap the benefits of what Americans have built. They want to jump to the front of the line and enjoy the running water and asphalt roads their countries don’t have, the grocery stores filled with food, the safety of a moral society, the welfare of a generous nation.
Living in this country is a privilege. Legal immigration should be extremely difficult, expensive, and assimilation should be demanded, not assumed.
Illegal immigration should be eliminated, not because I’m against somebody trying to chase the American dream, but because they haven’t paid the generational price it took build this country, the lives lost, the treasure paid, and the human capitol invested in OUR country. My family tree dates back pre- revolutionary war, their sacrifices as well millions of other families built the country in the pursuit of happiness promised them as Americans.
Swimming a river and demanding rights in this country is insulting to the generations of Americans who built it. If your country and countrymen aren’t willing to build your own homeland what makes you think you can take advantage of ours? If your ancestors couldn’t provide a stable land to live in what gives you the right to ours?
The simple answer….you have no right to America and it’s prosperity. Go back home and do what your ancestors refused to do, make your homeland a better place to live, leave ours alone.

A top Mexican official on Tuesday said that Mexico may consider charging a fee for Americans entering the country in what could be seen as a retaliation to President Trump’s call for a border wall. Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray, in a meeting with Mexico’s top legislators, called Trump’s plan an “unfriendly, hostile” act, and called on his colleagues to consider the entry fee.
“We could explore — not necessarily a visa, that could impede a lot of people from coming to Mexico — but we could perhaps (have) a fee associated with entry,” Videgaray said. “This is something that I’m sure will be part of our discussion, and I believe we can find points of agreement.”
Videgaray went on to say that Mexico would not pay a cent toward the wall. He said if talks between the U.S. and Mexico fail to satisfy both countries, the Mexican government would consider reducing security cooperation.
“If the negotiation on other themes — immigration, the border, trade — isn’t satisfactory to Mexico’s interests, we will have to review our existing cooperation,” Videgaray said. here…
“Review our existing cooperation”? You don’t cooperate, you export your people to America so they can repatriate billions thus propping up your corrupt third world economy. And as far as charging a “fee” to get into your wretched country, knock yourselves out, should do wonders for the tourist industry that continues to shrink because you can’t hide all the bodies piling up in Cabo and Mazatlan. Yeah, charge that fee Luis.by jeffli6 with 5 comments

Mitt Romney got a larger percentage of the white vote than Ronald Reagan did in 1980. But the country has changed so dramatically and so intentionally and artificially by government policy, that Democrats have an enormous leg up now. And if things aren’t done, you can say ‘adios’ to whatever your pet issue is, whether it is abortion or the budget or taxes or guns. Get ready to lose, because Democrats decided, ‘Sorry, America, we tried this the easy way. We tried to get you to vote for us, but you wouldn’t, so we brought in ringers. And they’re gonna be voting, tens and tens of millions of them’.”
