A case against DACA...

DACAs were brought illegally by parents committing three felonies to get jobs. Parental criminality inflicting pain on children is “cruelty” by the parent, regardless of nationality.

DACAs can prove they love America and become law-abiding by returning home and applying to participate in President Trump’s immigration, based on the needs of America’s economy. It would be a shame to waste over $100 billion annually of stolen taxpayer funded social services.

This especially includes education (the 2012 average was $10,615 yearly per student).

Compassion, mercy and forgiveness are virtues performed by individuals toward their abusers. Governments must enforce their laws to maintain order and safety for citizens. We are supposed to be a nation based on constitutional laws.

Representative Barbara Jordan emphasized the first responsibility of a nation is to control who enters. Congress has responsibility to make immigration laws. Obama’s petulant ukases (executive DACA orders) circumvented Congress and are illegal and unconstitutional. His non-enforcement of immigration law has created more international gangs, human trafficking, drug smuggling, job losses for American workers, and murders such as Kate Steinle, killed by a five-time deported felon.

DACAs “compassionate” supporters demand they be accepted are like prohibition-era speakeasy patrons engendering today’s organized crime.

The loss of DACA workers will cost the U.S. economy less that one quarter of one percent of current GDP.
