It was great to see President Trump at the top of his game yesterday; completely in charge as he stage-managed a White House meeting with congressional leaders. The often-recalcitrant Republicans came across as the President’s docile supporters and the Democrats looked completely flummoxed by an in-command Donald Trump.
The only bad thing about the meeting – and make no mistake it is very bad – was that the whole meeting was about how to grant amnesty to the millions of illegal aliens that Obama attempted to legalize through his unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
We tend to agree with author and conservative commentator Ann Coulter, who, in a series of tweets and interviews, denounced President Trump’s apparent willingness to make a deal to allow so-called DREAMers to remain in the country.
Coulter called out Trump for his squishy language about the wall and for expressing a willingness to work with Democrats on DACA.
Three of Coulter’s tweets nailed our take:
“But don’t worry! There will be “border security”! (Political euphemism for: You’re not getting wall.)”
“This DACA lovefest confirms a main thesis of Michael Wolff’s book: When Bannon left. liberal Dems Jared, Ivanka, Cohn & Goldman Sachs took over.”
“Nothing Michael Wolff could say about @realDonaldTrump has hurt him as much as the DACA lovefest right now.”
But there’s another thing that no one is talking about as it relates to allowing the DACA illegal aliens to remain in the United States; chain migration.
If the DACA population is allowed to remain and eventually obtain citizenship, under current chain migration rules their parents – the ones who broke our laws and brought them here – would be entitled to legal entry, a green card and eventual citizenship.
So, trading DACA for building some piece of the wall is not a good deal for America’s hardworking citizens who have had to compete for jobs, education, housing etc. with the DACA population and their illegal alien parents.
Principled limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Steve King (IA-4) warned President Trump and congressional Republicans on Sunday not to make a deal with Democrats on the DACA population, saying any agreement would result in compromising the rule of law.
“Congress and President Trump cannot legalize DACAs without sacrificing the Rule of Law and broadcasting a call to come to America to be here for the next amnesty. No matter the ‘deal’ the Rule of Law would fall!” King tweeted according to reporting by Julia Manchester of The Hill.
Ann Coulter and Steve King are right.
As we said in our column “No Mr. President We Don’t ‘Hope’ To Work Out A Deal With Democrats,” what all of these pleas for legislation to grant blanket amnesty to 800,000 or more illegal aliens have in common is a complete contempt for the American worker, their quality of life and future prospects.
Moreover, the real goal of this effort is not to merely grant some humanitarian-motivated relief to current DACA beneficiaries, it is to advance the ultimate goal of changing the United States into an open borders globalist econometric society stripped of any of the of the trappings of nationhood or American exceptionalism.
The DACA fight isn’t about humanitarian relief for some unknown universe of illegal aliens, it is about preserving the promises made to American citizens in the preamble to the Constitution. Make no mistake, this is one of the battles of our times, because the fight against any bill that grants blanket amnesty to the current DACA recipients is an inflection point in the battle to preserve American sovereignty and nationhood, and in this battle the billionaires are almost all on the other side.
