The Truth About DACA

Posted by Troy on 20th September 2017 in Current Events, Political

Who can be against giving citizenship to people who were brought here since they were two?

First of all, I think that’s probably the minority of cases, but let’s deal with things logically:

Leftists say that they want to look at the children that are brought here by their parents, but let’s be honest, if you let the children stay, the argument automatically changes to “How can you separate families?!”  Also, if you give them a legitimate path to citizenship, you also open up them sponsoring their family members.  De facto, if you give the children citizenship, you will end up giving the parents citizenship.

You can never actually verify anything.  You find a twenty-three-year-old who is here illegally.  You ask him, “When did you get here?”  If he has a brain, he will say, “Oh, my parents brought me here when I was two.”  There’s no way to verify this.  He is illegal.  Any lack of paperwork/evidence can easily be chalked up to being here illegal and fear of deportation.  He will no doubt have several people willing to lie for him, or he can say something vague like “We lived in the shadows…always moving…”  Unless you want to allow a “liar liar pants on fire” methodology, there’s no way to counter this.  This is actually the main reason not to do DACA.  There is literally no way to verify eligible people.  If you can’t identify who is or is not eligible, then everyone is eligible.

But let’s assume you find two illegals who came here and had a child on American soil–also known as an anchor baby.  They will say that you can’t separate the family.  I don’t want to separate them.  The child goes with the parent.  Citizenship confers to the child.  A child born on American soil to Mexican parents are Mexican.  They are also American as we have a strange law saying if you are born here, you’re a citizen.  The only reason we have this law has to do with slavery and making sure no state denied citizenship to the children of slaves.  But it is the law on the books.  If the parents go, the child goes with them unless they have a relative they wish the child to stay with or someone adopt the child (etc).  When the child reaches the age of majority (18), they get to come back.  If you say it’s cruel because this is the only country they have known…parents move ALL THE TIME against the wishes of the children.  If doesn’t matter if all their friends are there!  They way to graduate from that high school!  etc.  It does not matter.  The desires of minors are at the whims of their parents.  If the parents move, the child goes with them.

Long Live the Constitution!

Pathway for Citizenship to Illegals

Posted by Troy on 14th November 2012 in Current Events, Political

The political truth of our generation is that we have a race of people who are defending criminals and promoting them, and our politicians are utterly scared to do anything about it.  Fine, so be it.  We cannot deport them (solely because politicians either want to use this voting block or fear this voting block over actually honoring the law).  Ergo, they have to stay.  If this is the case, the following MUST be done.

1)  We must seal the boarder.  Put every active duty military personnel stationed in the US guarding the boarder.  What else do they have to do?

2)  Force registration.  If you don’t register by 12/31, you’re out, no amnesty for you.

3)  A fine must be levied, and it must hurt.  I recommend at least $25,000.  This is to be paid via tax levy on their wages and tax returns.

4)  These people can NEVER become US Citizens.  They came here illegally.  They cannot become citizens.  If they wish to be citizens, they must go and come back.  At best, they can become permanent residents.

5)  Anyone hiring anyone who is not a member of the registered group is to be punished severely.

6)  This group is allowed to be paid sub-minimum wage.  If we wish, we can set a floor of 75% of minimum.

7)  This group will never be allowed for Social Security and Medicare and other programs.

Of course, if we do all this, the Democrats will just come in behind and make them citizens and grant them all the rights and privileges there of, but it’s a nice thought at least.

Long Live the Constitution!

More Thoughts on Dream Act Lite

Posted by Troy on 19th June 2012 in Current Events, Political

I originally said that Executive nullification is a viable way to get around a “bad law.”  That is to say, if there is a bad law on the books, the President can choose not to enforce it.  Conservatives may rail about it, but Romney is talking about doing the same thing by offering waivers to all 50 states on the Health Care Act.  However, what Obama is doing is slightly different.  What he is advocating is exempting specific groups of people (young illegals).  This is different.  Imagine if Obama declared that he would not enforce insider trading laws against middle-aged white men?  let me explain it this way.  Sickened by the way cocaine convictions are treated differently between blacks and whites, Obama declares that he is not going to enforce the drug laws.  Well, that’ll probably cost him his job, but you know what would be infinitely worse?  If he were to say that he wasn’t going to enforce drug laws only when they are committed by blacks.  Everyone would call foul and should call foul.  The same is being applied here.

Another problem I have against this law (past reasons I’ve already pointed out) is that it is benefiting the citizens of other countries at the detriment of Americans.  What the hell is that?!

There’s another problem with this issue.  Okay, so we’re not going to enforce these laws against children that were brought over with their parents.  So, if we deport the parents, are we going to separate them from their families then?

That and these are UNDOCUMENTED people.  So, how the hell do we know when and how they came over here?  What is to stop a 23 year old Mexican citizen from hopping the boarder and saying, “Yeah, my parents brought me over here when I was eight?”  Are we doing to do exhaustive investigations on all 800,000 claims?  I think not.  This sucker’s gonna be full of fraud for sure.

I think Democrats lack a sense of cause and effect.  ”There are poor people?  Oh, well, give them some money.  That’ll solve the problem.  Surely there won’t be unforeseen consequences for this.”  Likewise, “We feel bad for the kids that illegals bring over.  Let’s not deport them.  Surely this won’t give parents of children the incentive to come over here illegally and create a claim for their kids to remain in this country.  Surely that won’t happen!”

Finally, this is a sick thing Obama and the Democrats are doing to secure votes.  This is like welfare/benefits.  ”If you want your benefits to stay, you had best keep electing us in.  If you want your young to stay in this country, you had best keep electing us.”  It’s a path of enslavement.  This is why it’s a two year time limit.  That way, he can tell Hispanics that, if they want this preferential treatment to continue, they had best re-elect him.

God, why can’t we impeach this man?  He has gone outside the Constitution more times than any President since FDR.

Long Live the Constitution!

Backdoor Dream Act

Posted by Troy on 20th August 2011 in Current Events, Political

Obama has announced that he is not going to work on deporting illegals if they are young and in school et cetera.  Deportation costs $24,000 per deportee.  First, I could do it cheaper I think.  We talk about government waste?  It can’t cost that much.  $1,000, put them on a plane handcuffed to an agent, fly them back to their home country, and drop them off at the airport.  We’re done.  I know that’s oversimplification, but it cannot cost $24,000.

This is obviously a play to get the Latino vote which has fled Obama.  While he still has the black vote, the Latino vote is not nearly as loyal to the Democrats (and specifically Obama) as blacks.  The sortsightedness in the plan comes in with the fact that he is exempting illegals from the law.  Illegals cannot vote (we’re assuming voter fraud does not exist).  Those Latinos which would be for amnesty and this plan are the ones that are going to be loyal to the Democratic party anyway.  All he is going to do is lose Latinos which came here legally and expect others to do the same and non-Latinos which will look at this as an abuse of power.

Finally, I want to discuss the Constitutionality of this decision.  As unsavory as it is, there is some precedence of a President ignoring the enforcement of the law.  This is basically a temporary pardon.  One of the checks and balances the President has is not to enforce a law if it is an unjust law.  It’s important to note that it is probably more likely that it is abused rather than used as a check and balance – much like when President Andrew Jackson ignored the Supreme Court when it came to the Cherokee Indians.  I believe Obama (and Democrats in general) have a great degree of contempt for the Constitution (excluding a few select Amendments,  but they are very selective about those select Amendments as well), but he is not going against the Constitution this time.  This is part of the checks and balances system, and it is up to us to judge him and see if he has abused his power and reward or punish him as such in November 2012.

Long Live the Constitution.
