House Speaker Paul Ryan issued a statement Tuesday that is far more positive towards the President’s decision on DACA after his prior statements criticizing the President for refusing to continue the illegal DACA [DREAMers] law.
How can a Republican like Speaker Ryan saw a law is unconstitutional because it was written from the White House and then tell the President to do it anyway? Perhaps he wants to give another, “this is who we are” speech.
In 2014, Ryan condemned President Obama for implementing this illegal law and rightfully so. Last week, he said once again that it was illegal but criticized the President for wanting to get rid of it [only Congress legislates under our Constitution]. But it’s Tuesday and the winds have shifted a bit.
If he wasn’t so anti-Trump, he might be more consistent. This is the latest:
“However well-intentioned, President Obama’s DACA program was a clear abuse of executive authority, an attempt to create law out of thin air. Just as the courts have already struck down similar Obama policy, this was never a viable long-term solution to this challenge.
Congress writes laws, not the president, and ending this program fulfills a promise that President Trump made to restore the proper role of the executive and legislative branches.
But now there is more to do, and the president has called on Congress to act. The president’s announcement does not revoke permits immediately, and it is important that those affected have clarity on how this interim period will be carried out. At the heart of this issue are young people who came to this country through no fault of their own, and for many of them it’s the only country they know.
Their status is one of many immigration issues, such as border security and interior enforcement, which Congress has failed to adequately address over the years. It is my hope that the House and Senate, with the president’s leadership, will be able to find consensus on a permanent legislative solution that includes ensuring that those who have done nothing wrong can still contribute as a valued part of this great country.”
If Congress wants full amnesty, it will be a disaster.
Congress didn’t want to have this to deal with while they are working on healthcare, tax reform, the budget, infrastructure. Perhaps if they got even one thing done, we’d care about their stress levels. Perhaps if the Senate Majority Leader would dump the filibusters as Democrats will do once back in office, we’d get everything done.
The alt-left has made illegal immigration into an issue of race and humanitarianism, leaving the Republicans shuffling and dodging. The larger goal of the alt-left is to make the USA into a one party nation.
Is anyone sick of the expression ‘children who have come to this country through no fault of their own’? Isn’t this their parents fault and didn’t they do it to use them as anchors? Why are we okaying children who are now middle-aged to avoid deportation without a discussion? It’s not that we believe everyone should be sent back but those who are gaming the system and some who are gang members need to be weeded out. Not all DREAMers are “incredible kids” as the President has said.
Let’s keep the high quality DACA and take a close look at those who refuse to produce.
The Center for Immigration Studies reports that 73% of DACA are living in low-income housing, 21% dropped out of high school, and 51% were unemployed before DACA.
Illegal aliens and immigrants in the United States in general get much more in government funding than citizens. Half of all immigrant households get welfare. Our seniors are getting $1200 a month in Social Security while illegal immigrants are getting $5692 in monthly benefits [welfare] and American families on welfare are getting $4,431.
This person has a point. Why are Americans rejected to make room for foreigners? Americans are already diverse. Everyone in my family is diverse and I’m typical.
