Letter to the Editor Opposes DACA Amnesty

Dear editor:

Once again, the liberal Democrats in Congress have demonstrated their dishonesty and hypocrisy.

They have claimed that their concern for illegal aliens covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is motivated by the fact that many of these illegals were brought here as minors by their parents, and were not responsible for the crime of illegal entry.  Republicans in Congress responded by offering a deal based on that premise.  Those covered by DACA would be allowed to stay, and Congress would empower Homeland Security to increase its efforts to find and deport those who deliberately broke the law.

Democrats have not only rejected this compromise, they have threatened to shut down the Federal government unless DACA is written into law without any provisions for better law enforcement.

It is clear that these advocates of the DACA amnesty have no concern for enforcing the immigration laws.  They hope that DACA will simply be the first step toward a general amnesty for millions of lawbreakers.

Republicans should call their bluff.  Let’s see how long Democrats are willing to keep the government shut down in the name of encouraging violations of Federal law.
