DACA and the Democratic Party. The two are really oil and water, they do not mix.
You cannot forget that the Democrats controlled the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the Presidency in Obama’s first term in office. They did nothing for these people; instead they concentrated 100% of their efforts in converting our health care system into socialized medicine.
Only during Obama’s second term, after they lost the House did he take it upon himself to give them protection via executive order, which was probably unconstitutional.
So why are the Democrats bringing this up now? Is it because they feel a sudden ping in their hearts for these people? I hope you don’t believe this. The real reason is they have nothing as a party to fight Trump. The Russia collusion façade is blowing up in their face and we are going into the midterms with a booming economy like we never saw under Obama.
The Democratic Party is in crisis due to Hillary Clinton rigging the Democratic Primary kicking Bernie Sanders to the curb. Now it appears that Hillary paid the Russians for the Steele dossier that was used to get FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign.
Furthermore, it appears as though Obama and the Democrats weaponized the F.B.I. and Justice Department to rig the election for Hillary. This is a bigger constitutional crisis than Watergate. Matter of fact, these escapades makes Watergate look like Romper Room when you compare them.
I was reading an article where a Dreamer said he was tired of being used as a political pawn by the Democratic Party. He made several valid points in his article that are very pertinent. I invite you to see them. http://dailycaller.com/2018/02/10/daca-recipient-dems-using-dreamers-pawns/
Another problem for the Democrats and the DACA debacle is that it does very little for the Party on a national scale. The states that are affected most by the DACA issue are California, Texas, and maybe New York. California and New York are already heavily Democratic so no gains there and the Democratic Party have no chance of gaining ground in Texas. So why are they making a stand on this issue, again, they have nothing else. Another article further expands on this so please read this. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/02/10/as-trump-derides-dems-for-using-daca-battle-for-hispanic-votes-reignites.html
So, if you are a Dreamer protected under DACA if I were you, I would embrace the Trump offer of a path to citizenship. That is a real deal from a real President. All you are getting from Democrats is empty rhetoric and a worthless conversation.
