How illegal immigrant Dreamers amassed
power to force government shutdown

Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/22/2018 4:42:20 AM

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade. Yet they have amassed an extraordinary amount of

We have been invaded by a foreign Army, and the democrats (and big business RINOs) have let them in for the last 31 years. The Russians were unable to do this, the ChiComs have done some of this at the southern border.

This is the anti-American invasion launched by rich liberal womanizer murdererTed Kennedy 50 years ago....

Nothing would spur on Trump voters than seeing thousands of ILLEGALS marching in our streets, DEMANDING they are granted Legalization. I think MOST Voters, no matter which side of the Aisle they are on, have had it with Illegals living off the Taxpayers. Some of these Dreamers are mid-twenties to thirty years old. How many of them have jobs, or speak English? Personally, I would like to see The President let the date lapse that allows them special status. Then start sending them back in Busses (Not First-Class Seats on Planes)!

Democrats like to change words then over use them until we accept it in daily use. Not here, these are adult illegal foreigners who crashed our border to be here, criminals not ´dreamers´
I hope President Trump let´s this Obama BS expire then throw them all out of the country.
It´s time to pull the DACA deal completely and forever off the table with no more discussion about it with the left and
Chuck Schumer.

I wrote to both of my Senators yesterday. This is part of what I said to Sen. Toomey:

We saw Senator Blount on Fox this morning. 70% of Americans do not support DACA! It´s the Wrong direction that President Trump started a year ago. Democrats are losing voters so they need to get people into this country beholden to them. If this economy continues to take off for people in the US, minorities will start to see that they´ve been sold a bill of goods from the left. Follow President Trump´s lead, and you will have the people of this state supporting you. The globalists are over, it is time to MAGA!

I don´t know what poll thinks that 70% of Americans want illegals. Write your Senators. They need to hear from us.

"Dreamers began to “come out,” publicly announcing their status and defying the government to try to deport them.

Since then, they have sat in the first lady’s box at a State of the Union speech, been in the Oval Office at the White House and spoken at the Democratic presidential nominating convention."

They have "amassed power"
because they have been promoted
by anti-American, anti-Western, anti-Capitalist anti-White,
racist, seditionist(cf. CA), treasonist(cf. Clinton) democrats.

They are the tip of a spear
aimed at the heart of an America
globalist communist democrats loathe
and want to destroy.

That spear must be broken.

THIS is exactly what dems WANT to happen, that illegals call the shots in the dems favor.

And it is ALREADY happening. If you don´t think that illegals voted in 2016 you deserve a place in BO´s Choom Gang. That´s why the dem states refused to cooperate in Trump´s voting investigation. They weren´t afraid of violations of privacy, they are afraid of being exposed.

Currently the so-called “Dreamer” illegal aliens only have the amount of political power that the leftist liberal and progressive Democrats grant to them. This whole disruption to government operations is the fault of the Democrats, who put the prospect of millions of future foreign born voters, over the safety of the American people and the necessary funding of the US military.

Whatever amnesty the Congress passes to legalize the 800,000 or so illegal aliens who signed up for Obama’s defacto and illegal DACA amnesty will set the legislative precedent for the future, as Congress has never before passed an amnesty specifically for young illegal aliens who were either brought or smuggled into the USA by their illegal alien parents.

The liberal Democrat invented term “Dreamers” defines a must larger universe of young illegal aliens then the DACA illegal aliens. While the DACA population is about 800,000 who entered before 2007, there are an estimated 3.6 million “Dreamers” who have entered the country since 2007 with more coming in every day. What the Democrats are really angling for is to grant an amnesty for all, including millions of their illegal alien parents who caused this problem in the first place, figuring that most will eventually become socialist oriented Democrat voters in the future. President Trump was not elected to support such a massive liberal Democrat future electoral advantage generated by way of mass amnesties for millions of illegal aliens.

The Government shutdown is the final nail in the coffin. At this point, I want ONLY legal immigration, the law of the land, to be in effect. Build the wall and send everyone illegally and criminally in the U.S. out. The so-called children are here because their parents were criminals. Humanitarianism has now been usurped by blackmail and those promoting illegality to the detriment of our citizens. Enough is da*n enough. and send the Democrats and the Rhinos back home the next time we vote. Absolutely no way anyone here illegally should have preference over our citizens.

I am just stunned into shock over our elected representatives putting ILLEGAL ALIENS ahead of fellow Americans who built this country, made it work and turned it into a paradise, pay all their taxes and thus the politicians salaries. And this is the thanks we get?? If it wasn´t so heart breaking it might be ironically funny.

Tell me: If parents sneak into a theater or a football game and sneak their kids in too and get caught ... do the kids get to stay? If the parents rob a bank and bring the money home and get caught a month later, do the kids get to keep the money? The parents steal a car with their ten-year-old, then they get arrested ... but the kid gets to keep the car! Has the USA gone insane??

Once the "Dreamers" (American kids don´t have dreams!) get to stay, they´ll demand their parents come up and stay and the other kids, grandparents, etc. Insanity! Permanent green cards --- no citizenship -- for those "Dreamers" who learn English, pay taxes and get a job. The rest can go back "home"

There is only so much room in the life boat called America afloat in the world sea and we are up to the gunwales and soon the water will be coming over the rowlocks.

They are colonizing the United States. I do remember quite a few years ago the then president of Mexico (can´t remember his name as I don´t keep up with Mexican politics), but he said that Mexico would take back the Mexican territory in the United States. He said that Mexicans entering the USA would be so many and take over and Mexico will declare it Mexican territory again. He was right.

These pols are currently even willing to shut down this country rather than to put this country & its citizens first, which includes obeying the Rule of Law, which of course includes Immigration Law. Ergo, the current dem pols and RINOS are acting lawlessly and totally contrary to their own oaths of office. ...Voters are taking note of their lawless insurrection against the Law. ...Who can ever again vote for any pol who is known to ignore the Laws protecting our country and American citizens?

Yes, an invasion, and following the money would probably reveal the solicitation, organization, and financing behind the massive demonstrations taking place throughout this country by the same people and foundations responsible for Ferguson, Baltimore, and Wall Street destructive demonstrations—plus the multitude of other protests throughout this country. Solicitation, organizing and financing very likely providing financing for food, equipment, shelter, signage, training, transportation and, perhaps, bail money. Glaring examples of what evil money can buy.

Perhaps you are all correct and the US is not the power we once thought it to be.
After all, if it can be invaded by children and held hostage by young people (going to law school and serving in the Armed Forces) it isn´t very powerful at all.
Their parents violated the law. The parents should shoulder the blame.

Here´s how it works: the Chinese government offers to build some massive infrastructure project like a soccer stadium for FREE with conditions. Among those conditions are that all workers must be from China and MUST be given immediate citizenship!

While it is humane to allow children brought here by their parents to remain, ir is illegal and criminal to allow the parents to remain.The entry was outside of the control of the child, but the parents have broken our laws. If there is no one left here to care for an underage child, then the child should also be sent home. There is no reason in the World for these illegal aliens to be given preference over people who have immigrated, or are awaiting to immigrate, LEGALLY. They could have done the same instead of breaking the law.

The liberal Democrats are fraudulently portraying the government shutdown as being the "Trump Shutdown" but it is impossible for it to be the "Trump Shutdown" because as President, Donald Trump is not a member of the US Senate. Where by not voting for the continuing resolution, provisions of which the Democrats did not oppose, in an effort to show that they defend and support illegal aliens, the liberal Democrat Senators forced the government shutdown themselves.

The 2009 Tea Party in DC (I took part -- it was amazing and patriotic) was the polite version of "Don´t screw Us" -- I don´t think that these legislators know the seething anger of citizens whose needs and expectations of fairness are being dashed for the benefit of people who should never be here!

How hard is it to say "get out or get arrested, put on a bus and driven to the border?"

I don´t care when they came, I want them gone!

No more immigrants unless they are marrying an American citizen.

Both sets of my great-grandparents LEGALLY immigrated to this county and soon after proudly became naturalized American citizens. One pair immigrated from Mexico. They had to prove that they had skills that were valuable to the workforce back then, so they were admitted to the USA. We as a country owe these so called DACA "dreamers" absolutely nothing! They were admitted to this country only to cultivate a voting block for the Democrat party, nothing else. It is insult to compare these individuals and their families with people like my ancestors that chose to enter this country through legal means. California is a prime example of an area that has been overrun by illegals primarily from Mexico. The Democrat politicians in that state put the concerns of illegals over that of those born in the USA. Democrats aren´t interested in democracy for all, just those that cast votes for them.

FTA: “We know that the public is on our side,” Cata Santiago, a Dreamer, said in a statement.

But that’s a lie. The public is NOT on their side.

For many of them, their mothers put them on freight trains headed north, and Mexico let them go through. It’s like, if some illegal alien mother leaves her baby out on the sidewalk in front of your house, why should you be forced to take it in and spend the next 20 years raising it? Who says you have that responsibility? Well, the dreamer advocates, that’s who. No. We don’t have to do it. We won’t do it. Send them back. Send them ALL BACK.

I have a dream too. That dream is that Mexicans and Salvadorans take care of their own kids instead of expecting us to do it.

Politico reports that Democrats aren’t keen on having Bill Clinton help out in this year’s campaigns, what with #MeToo consciousness so high. Too bad that leaves them without any major figure to appeal to working-class voters. Party figures tried to be diplomatic about it. Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) told Politico that the ex-president “just brings up a lot of issues that will be very tough for Democrats” and their messaging. Clinton’s past is just too vivid a reminder that sexual abuse is a bipartisan problem, if Harvey Weinstein & Co. weren’t enough. Former President Barack Obama can’t help much: He’s popular with the

Liberals increasingly are coming out of the closet, admitting that what they have wanted all along is to ban, or limit to an extreme degree, private ownership of firearms. This would require, as a starting point, repeal of the Second Amendment, which more and more liberals now admit they favor. Earlier today, InstaPundit linked to a marvelous 2015 column by Charles Cooke. Not much has changed since then. Cooke notes that talk is cheap, and encourages liberals to take on the onerous task of accomplishing what they say they want.

The orangutan is one of our planet’s most distinctive and intelligent creatures. It has been observed using primitive tools, such as the branch of a tree, to hunt food, and is capable of complex social behaviour. Orangutans also played a special role in humanity’s own intellectual history when, in the 19th century, Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace, co-developers of the theory of natural selection, used observations of them to hone their ideas about evolution. But humanity has not repaid orangutans with kindness. The numbers of these distinctive, red-maned primates are now plummeting thanks to our destruction of their habitats

The Angry Liberal Mob

Have you ever wondered why liberals, particularly activist liberals, are so angry all the time? It’s not that they’re angry people, or at least it’s not just that they’re angry people, it’s for a different, very important reason – anger overrides logic. Anger is kryptonite to logic, and for liberalism to work, to attract a large audience, logic has to be overridden. You’ve undoubtedly heard at least some of the news over the past few years coming out of college campuses, the shout-downs and the riots when an Ann Coulter or Ben Shapiro go to a school to commit the sin

Now that the gun control advocates have had their fifteen minutes of fame, let’s start focusing on the real issues impacting the rise in school shootings since that infamous day in Columbine in 1999. Issue number one that no one in the mainstream media or government wants to acknowledge: fatherlessness. Specifically, the impact of fatherlessness on the boys who grew up to become school shooters. Dr. Warren Farrell, author of the new book The Boy Crisis, explains: Minimal or no father involvement, whether due to divorce, death, or imprisonment, is common to Adam Lanza, Elliott Rodgers, Dylan Roof and Stephen Paddock. In the

The conversation eight years ago was with a man I didn’t know and haven’t seen since. Yet at times like these, I remember what he said as if it were yesterday. The man is Avi Dichter, a member of the Israeli Knesset and former head of Shin Bet, Israel’s version of the FBI. We were seated beside each other at a dinner in Tel Aviv, and the talk turned to security, especially at airports. “The problem with you Americans,” I recall Dichter saying, “is that you worry about what people are carrying in their luggage. In Israel, we worry about who the

Friday’s grand jury indictment in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election destroys Democratic claims that the Trump presidential campaign colluded with Russia to win the race, and that the Russian interference cost Hillary Clinton the election. It is now time for Mueller to look into real election interference and collusion with the Russians by the Democrats. The grand jury indicted 13 Russians and three Russian entities for their alleged efforts to interfere with the 2016 election. The indictment says the Russians hid their involvement in this scheme and

Elizabeth Warren must drop
Cherokee ‘myth’ for support

Why did she do it? Elizabeth Warren still hasn’t answered that question, and unless she does, she won’t shake off the doubts and questions surrounding her claims to American Indian ancestry. The Massachusetts senator called herself a minority for nearly 10 years. She reported that claim on a legal directory and two law schools reported her as a minority on federal forms. Yet Warren is clearly not a minority. She’s white. Her family doesn’t appear on any Cherokee rolls. Even if she does have Cherokee ancestry from her mother’s family, it would make her a fraction Native American at most. A Native American

A serial survivor of scandals, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appears to be in trouble once more after police recommended a range of bribery and other charges against him in two separate investigations. Yet the law doesn’t require him to step down until convicted, the process could drag on for months, and the determined, loquacious leader is digging in his heels. For now, his coalition is lining up behind him, but public opinion could change that. If his Likud Party concludes he has become a liability, minnows could quickly turn into sharks and the party could replace him and retain power

The FBI failed to investigate warnings about the Florida school shooter, but never mind that. And the National Rifle Association has no control over school shootings, but never mind that, either. Two newly minted gun control activists from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are defending the FBI, while demanding that NRA "child murderers" dismantle and disband. And they have declined an invitation to discuss their concerns with President Donald Trump, whom they call "disgusting."

On March 24 students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and other schools around the country will march in hopes of pressuring Congress to pass more gun control. Although the March is officially titled “March for Our Lives,” BuzzfeedNews reports the march is indeed focused on securing gun control: (Video/Tweet) ABC News reports that South Broward High School students have already begun rallying for gun control, with Sophomore Genesis Campbell leading chants while holding a sign that read, “No more silence, end gun violence.” And this all comes after Nikolas Cruz complied with gun control to acquire a rifle, then

Students are in the middle of a lie-in protest outside the White House over gun laws just days after 17 people were killed in the Florida high school shooting massacre. Groups of students from Washington DC staged the protest on Monday on a road leading to the White House. They took turns lying on the road for three minutes - the same amount of time 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz went on a firing spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week. Other students stood by holding signs that read ´Am I next?´ and ´Is Congress or the NRA making our

And now, ladies and gentlemen, for your viewing pleasure, the first rendition of the national anthem at a major sporting event that would be more appropriate for some steamy scene from a movie than honoring those who have fought for the United States of America. Here is Fergie singing the anthem at the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday. Viewer discretion advised: (Video) Reaction varied from hilarity at Fergie’s screeching to jokes about how she was attempting to make Francis Scott Key into a composer of a song more appropriate for the bedroom to simple outrage that Fergie would dishonor the

Hillary Clinton´s campaign chairman John Podesta – whose emails were hacked and leaked during the 2016 campaign – called out President Trump Sunday for not doing more to punish the Russians for their interference or prep the nation for when the Kremlin tries to do it again. ´If this is information warfare, then I think he´s the first draft-dodger in the war,´ Podesta claimed of Trump on Face the Nation. Asked about Trump´s motivations, Podesta said that Trump´s psyche is ´complicated,´ but added that ´he certainly can´t accept that this activity may have helped him, and I think he just constantly tries

An activist group has launched a voter registration effort aimed at black voters at screenings of the “Black Panther” movie nationwide. Members of the Electoral Justice Project, an offshoot of the Movement for Black Lives, are seeking to motivate black voters and increase political engagement with the #WakandaTheVote campaign, the website Blavity reported. Wakanda is the fictional African nation featured in the long-anticipated Marvel film “Black Panther.” Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd and Rukia Lumumba founded the Electoral Justice Project last year, and told Blavity that the movement has been effective “because we meet our communities where they are, whether that´s

He has no idea how to make a majority of voters choose him. Mitt’s back. The former governor of Massachusetts and occasional native son of Michigan has a new persona: Mr. Utah. He’s going to bring Utah conservatism to the whole Republican party and to the country at large. Wholesome, efficient, industrious, faithful. “Utah has a lot to teach the politicians in Washington,” he says in announcing his Senate campaign. Maybe. There’s always been something unstable about Mitt Romney’s political identity.

The corner of Atlantic and Bedford Avenues in Crown Heights is Ground Zero of this middle-income neighborhood’s high anxiety. For the last two years, neighbors have complained to anyone who will listen that groups of men become an occupying force in the sidewalks around the huge 350-bed Atlantic Armory Men’s Shelter. On several recent mornings, the men were out en masse. Two Department of Homeless Services police officers leaned against the fence outside the 800-bed red-brick shelter. About 50 feet away a man nonchalantly urinated against the facility wall. Across Pacific St., men were sprawled on chairs and milk crates.

DALLAS, Texas-A leader in Dallas politics does not want the National Rifle Association to meet in his city. Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway is urging the NRA to find a new home for its annual convention. He says the meeting is not appropriate in Dallas in the wake of last week´s school shooting in Florida. Caraway also points to the past tragedies in Dallas, including the 2016 ambush that killed five Dallas officers, and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. "It is a tough call when you ask the NRA to reconsider coming to Dallas. But it is putting

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment Friday of a Russian “troll farm” and 13 foreign nationals leaves little doubt Russia was working to undermine US democracy. But the filing also knocks the teeth out of the “collusion” claim. That is, the charges are a strong sign that there’s nothing to Democrats’ charge that Team Trump worked with Russia to steal the 2016 election. Mueller confirms that the trolling entity, the Internet Research Agency, used fake accounts on Facebook and Twitter to spread disinformation, sway public opinion and promote rallies. The “strategic goal” was “to sow discord in the US political system.” Indeed, IRA began
