As I predicted months ago when President Donald Trump announced he would end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in early 2018, the Left and Conservatism, Inc. are now beating the war drums for a “fix” to the little problem of hundreds of thousands of illegal invaders within our borders.
Former Obama Administration Secretaries of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson and Janet Napolitano, and former George W. Bush Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, sent a letter to congressional leaders urging them to give DACA illegals amnesty Jan. 3.
Trump held a meeting Jan. 4 with pro-amnesty Republican senators including Sen. Lindsey Graham, Thom Tillis, James Lankford and John Cornyn. Last fall Tillis proposed his own amnesty bill dubbed the SUCCEED Act, which would provide legal grounds to stay in the U.S. and apply for citizenship to 1 million to 3.3 million illegals. Lankford argued for the SUCCEED Act by claiming that illegal immigration is beneficial for the country due to increased competition (i.e. lower wages) in the labor market. Libertards at the Niskanen Center support the bill.
However, Breitbart noted:
Four million Americans turn 18 each year and begin looking for good jobs. However, the government imports roughly 1 million legal immigrants to compete against Americans for jobs.
The government also hands out almost 3 million short-term work permits to foreign workers. These permits include roughly 330,000 one-year OPT permits for foreign graduates of U.S. colleges, roughly 200,000 three-year H-1B visas for foreign white-collar professionals, and 400,000 two-year permits to DACA illegals…
Amid the huge inflow of new workers, wages for men have remained flat since 1973, and the percentage of working Americans has declined steadily for the last few decades.
On Jan. 3, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said that deal on DACA would include “securing the border with a wall, ensuring interior enforcement, eliminating the visa lottery program, and ending chain migration.” But what’s the point of building a wall to keep out illegals when at the first opportunity you let the ones that are here stay in the U.S.? As for chain migration, Kansas Secretary of State and gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach noted Jan. 3 that every previous amnesty has been attacked through the courts to allow chain migration. It would be nearly impossible to get congressional approval on a bill that could withstand legal challenges to bans on chain migration for the DACA illegals.
No column on DACA would be complete without a word from its sponsor, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Last fall USCC president and CEO Thomas Donohue wrote,
According to some estimates, approximately 700,000 [DACA illegals] are employed in the U.S., performing a wide variety of jobs. If the DACA program is allowed to end, eventually none of these individuals will be legally allowed to remain—let alone work—in America. This outcome would be contrary to fundamental American principles and the best interests of our country.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is pleased to see strong expressions of support within Congress and the Trump administration for providing permanent relief to DACA recipients.
Given all the Republican and libertarian posturing on behalf of lower wages for native workers, it makes one better understand why many of our grandpappies were Democrats! Sadly, no major party today has the interests of native-born workers in mind, as Democrats are even more complicit in destroying our people than Republicans.
The public relations effort behind giving these DACA foreigners legal cover is based on nothing more than lies. The practical consequence of any “deal” on DACA will be to accelerate the demise of the late American republic and the violent genocide of her native, white American people.
If someone illegally came into my house, the only “fix” appropriate would be getting him out, by any means necessary. Sadly, the voters who put Trump into the White House in November 2016 don’t believe this. If Trump approves any deal that “fixes” this problem by simply granting these illegal foreign invaders legal grounds to stay in the U.S.A., we in the Alt Right may hope that he becomes a one-term president on that basis, but many of the rank-and-file MAGA/GOP voters will still turn out to vote for him in 2020 because he’ll be the lesser of two evils.
The Kansan candidate for governor best known for his strident, civic nationalist positions on illegal immigration has himself considered under what conditions a “deal” on DACA would be worth it.
“If [Trump] drives a knife in the back of his base by granting an amnesty without extraordinary law enforcement concessions, then I think the base is disheartened, very hard for him to get reelected, and it’s going to be harder for Republicans to win seats in the Senate.”…
“The last time we got an amnesty, we got virtually nothing in return despite the promises that were made to the Reagan administration,” said Kobach. “[We can’t] fall for the same trick again.”
That’s bad news for Americans who want to keep their country American. Worse yet, the insanity reigns from the top to the bottom of the voter ranks, from the president himself to his ardent civic nationalist supporters.
Democrats are doing nothing for DACA – just interested in politics. DACA activists and Hispanics will go hard against Dems, will start “falling in love” with Republicans and their President! We are about RESULTS.

If he were here, Ronald Reagan would dispute that optimistic claim. How many times have Republicans won California since the last amnesty? Answer: Once, 1988. GOPe told Reagan the same lies. Don't buy it. By rewarding illegals you'll only get more illegals. Zero Republican votes

The cuckservative position on immigration and race is a losing proposition, though, because the average Latinx will not be more favorable to Trump and the GOP on account of a DACA “fix” any more than they have been since Reagan’s 1986 amnesty of millions of Mexican illegals.
Don't EVEN try to take ANY credit for helping DACA immigrants or any other for that matter! WE Will remember who stood with us and who stood against us, and REPUBLICANS have blocked humane immigration reform since BEFORE Obama.

Latinos overwhelmingly vote Democrat, period. In 1988, Dukakis got 70% of the Hispanic vote despite his opponent, former vice-president George H.W. Bush, serving in the administration that approved the 1986 amnesty. In 1992, Clinton got 61%. In 1996, Clinton got 73%. In 2000, Gore got 62%. In 2004, Kerry got 53%. In 2008, Obama got 67%. In 2012, Obama got 71%. In 2016, Clinton got 65%.
Stop being stuck on stupid, cuckservatives. Your outreaches and giveaways to illegal mestizos and other non-whites will win you no favors and no love. Don’t ruin our country just for your stupid idea.
