If you need any further proof that the Democrats on Capitol Hill are playing the DACA card for political purposes only, you only have to look at the latest deal that Donald Trump proposed to them.
Trump sent to the Dem’s a proposal that would keep DACA in place until 2020 in exchange for $25 billion for his wall on the southern border. You know as well as I do that without that wall, the Dem’s aren’t going to get squat when it comes to DACA. Well, the Dem’s sent back their own proposal. They want a path to citizenship for 1.8 million DACA kinds (only 800,000 are signed up!) in exchange for the wall funding.
Talks, as one sane person may reasonably deduce, broke down at that point.
Now, you can fully understand that the Democrats want to use DACA in the upcoming House and Senate elections. They aren’t interested in a debate on this topic, they are interested in using it as a campaign issue. That’s sad. There are real lives at stake here, and quite frankly, when the Supreme Court ends up ruling on this thing before June, the result is going to be quite disturbing to Democrats. They are going to find that the deal Trump put on the table will get a lot less lenient for them because once the high court says that since Obama issued an executive order for the DACA fiasco, Trump can certainly end it any way he wants (overturning the appeals courts), there’s no reason to deal with Democrats anymore. They become non-entities.
Unfortunately, the libs in DC are wont to see that option. Oh, if they don’t get the Supreme Court decision they want, they’ll use that as a campaign issue, saying that Trump’s appointment of Neil Gorsuch is such a bad move that has ruined the high court for generations, it’s necessary to take over not only both houses of Congress, but also the White House in 2020. And that is just plain wrong.
See, the Democrats aren’t using law, or logic. They’re using emotion. You can’t rule with emotion any better than you can run a company with emotion. But it does tug on the heartstrings of the uninitiated and the uninformed. And today in this country, we have lot of very ignorant people when it comes to politics and all things cerebral. They go for the personalities rather than what really makes fiscal and common sense. They have no sense for laws, and they have no sense for right and wrong…only for their warped version of it. That is, in and of itself quite dangerous, and that’s what allows people like a Hillary Clinton (who never would have been considered a serious candidate for president 30 years ago!), or a Nancy Pelosi, or Harry Read, or even Chuck Schumer to get elected in the first place.
In short, the Dem’s blew it when they turned down Trump’s deal. In the end, DACA will go away because Trump isn’t going to get the funding he wants for his wall. The GOP in Congress are too scared of the Dem’s in Congress, and Trump will play hardball where the GOP won’t. It’s all that simple.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
