I won't make the "it's the law" argument. Instead, I will lay out a case for why DACA should come to an end:
1. Why are these children given elevated status and titles above our own? They're given in state tuition my own children wouldn't rate who are actually Americans? I have a serious problem with this.
2. Why aren't my children "dreamers" too? My children have hopes and aspirations just like anyone else. This country is theirs first.
3. Black youth is disastrously unemployed and their wages are driven down by an illegal labor force that shouldn't be here in the first place. Last time I checked, black youth were Americans as much as any of us yet their futures get overlooked in favor of importing cheap labor and keeping them on welfare and in prisons.
4. Amnesty of any form (which DACA most certainly is) begets more illegal immigration. We should've learned that when Reagan gave them amnesty.
5. If you're not an American citizen, who the hell do you think you are to march in our streets and demand things from our lawmakers? That rubs many Americans the wrong way and many of these dreamers seem to have a sense of entitlement.
6. Dreamers will be a permanent Democrat voting block. Let's not kid ourselves that Hispanics already vote in large majorities for Democrats and these dreamers are bound to see the Democrats as the party that let their parents in here and the party that most favored giving them legal status.
7. So long as welfare is more attractive for most Americans than a low wage job, illegals will continue to supply this work force and corporate America will be more than happy to have them.
8. Not all of these "Dreamers" are doctors, serving in the military, or talented violinists. The corporate media has waged a propaganda war to normalize these people and in many ways make them appear more worthy of citizenship than other immigrant children and even our own children. Why do "compassionate conservatives" always fall into these pit traps laid forth by the media. Why can't conservatives and libertarians make a concerted, intellectual case against DACA?
