Commentary: The purpose of this blog is to discuss the economic, demographic and cultural ramifications of granting blanket amnesty to DACA recipients, hereinafter referred to as Dreamers, will have in America. Fortunately, Trump rescinded this egregious illegal initiative in September and gave Congress six months to develop a sensible solution relative to the disposition of illegal Dreamers. As the six-month window closes and discussions of amnesty increase, I think a basic understanding of the initiative will be of benefit while watching the fireworks it generates in Congress.
Terminology: The term DREAMer was derived from the DREAM Act of 2001 which was never passed. It was intended to grant illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children a path to legal status, hence they were known as DREAMers. DACA, which is explained below, granted deferred action on deportation to approximately the same group that would have been covered by the DREAM Act and for simplicity, it’s recipients also became known as DREAMers.
DACA: For the sake of redundancy, please bear with this brief description of DACA: It’s an acronym for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. DACA is one of many unconstitutional Executive Orders signed by Obama who trashed the Constitution as a matter of course. The initiative, established in June 2012, allowed certain illegal immigrants to escape deportation and obtain work permits for a period of two years, renewable upon good behavior. DACA applicants were required to meet specific requirements that included the following:
- Under 31 Years of age as of June 15, 2012
- Entered the U.S. prior to the 16th birthday
- Continuously resided in the U.S. since June 15, 2007
- Presently reside in the U.S.
DACA Proponents: Not surprisingly, proponents of granting amnesty and citizenship to illegal Dreamers are the same ilk that backed Obama illegally importing and supporting hordes of unscreened indigent tribal Muslims, and for the same absurd reason; because ’it’s the right thing to do’. But certainly not for America. This group claims there are approximately 800,000 DACA recipients in America, all innocent, sympathetic victims that were born in the U.S. to illegal aliens.
However, in August 2012, the Pew Research Center estimated there to be 1.7M illegal aliens in the U.S. eligible to apply for DACA protection. I doubt that number had decreased by the time Trump rescinded the initiative in September 2017, and considering the government’s credibility on data, the number of DACA designated illegals likely exceeds 800.000. Well over 97% of Dreamers are Latinos; approximately 80% are from Mexico with El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras lagging far behind.
The Latent Intent of DACA: In my opinion, Obama intended DACA to provide its illegal alien recipients with an easy path to citizenship, voting rights, and the associated welfare benefits. He knew this would be eagerly supported by Paul Ryan, his chief advocate for importing and supporting indigent illegal aliens, and the usual congressional sycophants. This was the template Obama used for illegally importing and supporting the aforementioned Muslims, except that he waived the requisite pledge of allegiance to America for them so as not to offend Allah.
Furthermore, the executive order was not underpinned by Obama’s benevolence, but rather his disdain for and desire to catalyze the gradual removal of Whites from political power by exponentially increasing the number of non-white voters. He knew Dreamers and their families would procreate exponentially and as American citizens would most likely vote for a Latino Democratic candidate.
Birthright Citizenship and Anchor Babies: For the sake of brevity, the United States Federal courts have ruled that children born to illegal aliens within the jurisdiction of the U.S. are American citizens under the ‘citizenship clause’ of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. To be more succinct, children born to illegals in America are, ipso facto, citizens, and as such are immediately entitled to all associated benefits including the munificence of her welfare system.
These children are known as ‘anchor babies’ because they act as an anchor that pulls the illegal alien mother and eventually a host of other alien relatives outside of the nuclear family into permanent U.S. residency. Ergo, every child born to a Dreamer is an anchor baby and citizen able to enjoy welfare’s plentiful fruits. This luxury would not otherwise be available to a family of illegal aliens and has caused a dramatic rise in Medicaid costs and stipends under supplemental security income and disability income.
14th Amendment History: History is abundantly clear that the framers of the 14th Amendment had no intention of conferring citizenship on the children of aliens who happened to be born in the U.S. In 1866, the three men most intimately involved with the 14th Amendment and its citizenship clause, namely, Senators Jacob Howard, MI and Lyman Trumbull, IL, and Representative John Bingham, OH, specifically stated that children born in the U.S. who were foreigners or aliens were not citizens. Their sound law and logical reasoning stood for over 100 years until 1982 when ultra-liberal activist Supreme Court Justice William Brennan reared his ugly head and cast the swing vote that granted citizenship to children of illegal aliens born in the U.S.
The 14th Amendment also vests Congress with the power to enforce its provisions by appropriate legislation, i.e., amendment, as the framers intended. However, in 51 years Congress has preferred to leave the status quo and permit Brennan’s outrageous ruling to stand. For the record, most constitutional scholars opine that birthright citizenship is being erroneously granted by liberal activist judges who are intentionally misconstruing and misapplying the ‘citizenship clause’ to further personal agendas. They feel Brennan’s decision was illogical, poorly reasoned, evinced idiocy and should not be allowed to stand.
The most troubling and divisive entitlement inuring to anchor babies is the right to facilitate virtually unlimited migration of illegal aliens into the U.S. This is known as ‘chain migration’; it has dramatically transformed America’s demographic, economic, and cultural profile, and in my opinion, for the very worst.
Chain Migration, Anchor Babies, and Dreamers: Chain migration is the handiwork of Ted “Sot” Kennedy who strong-armed the passage of the Hart-Cellar 1965 Immigration Act during a few questionable moments of sobriety. The net effect of Hart-Cellar was to open America’s doors to the world’s indigent, illiterate aliens with tribal cultures, ethnicity notwithstanding. Specifically, it allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents at least 21 years of age to facilitate the immigration and automatic citizenship of their immediate and non-nuclear alien family members through sponsorship. The non-nuclear family of aliens can, and generally does include villages, aunts, uncles, cousins, and an entire ‘extended family’, whether legitimately related or otherwise.
Once in America, the sponsored family members can then sponsor their own alien parents and siblings, and the siblings can then sponsor their own foreign-born spouses… and on ad infinitum. This abomination creates a virtual never-ending and exponentially expanding migration chain primarily comprised of indigent tribal aliens whose cultures are totally different than Americas. These little darlings serve to swell America’s already over-burdened welfare rolls and assure exponential procreation.
The average age of a Dreamer today is 25. Among other benefits, amnesty will enable them to sponsor their immediate and non-nuclear alien family members for immigration to America as mentioned aforesaid. It is abundantly clear that this will significantly increase the number of indigent tribal aliens joining the endless migratory chain to America, and further compound its inherently adverse consequences.
America’s Wide Open Doors: The United States is one of the few countries in the world to recognize universal and automatic citizenship for children born to illegal and temporary immigrants of every ethnicity. The U.S. also has the distinction of being the only developed country to allow absolute unrestricted immigration of non-nuclear extended family members from all over the world under the feeble excuse of ‘family reunification’.
As chains of extended alien families enter America and drop countless thousands of babies the cost of welfare to support their wide-ranging needs will expand exponentially. They will be U.S. citizens at birth and likely be supported for years if not for life. America’s largess will cover their extended families and include food, housing, medical, education, civil legal representation and for many, the cost of public defenders and lengthy incarcerations.
For example, the Muslim jihadist from Bangladesh, Akayed Ullah, who attempted to blow up the Port Authority in Manhattan with a pipe bomb was in the U.S. as a chain migrant, and I guarantee you there is not a shortage of these savages.
The Amnesty Debate: As the issue of amnestying Dreamers and its inextricable link to chain migration intensifies, please ponder this simple question. How can the estimated millions of non-White illegal aliens entering America through chain migration that speak little if any English who will reap the rewards of and drain welfare possibly enhance or otherwise benefit America? Most of them are indigent from third world countries with tribal cultures where indifference to personal hygiene, the environment, and often the law are the norm.
Unlike Paul Ryan and his open borders to the world ‘is the right thing to do’ proponents, I cannot conceive of any value illegal Dreamers bring to America. Granting them amnesty, citizenship and the benefits of chain migration are not the right things to do for our great country. Doing so would clearly subordinate the best interests of America and her citizens to illegal aliens that have no standing in America. Admitting hordes of illegal aliens through chain migration facilitated by Dreamers will be tantamount to committing cultural and demographic genocide. Millions of aliens immigrated to the U.S. and became citizens legally. It would be unconscionable to grant blanket amnesty and citizenship with all of its inherent benefits to aliens who defied the legal process, regardless of their circumstances for which I am not at all sympathetic.
