The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an executive order granting illegal agents – the term agent used here because the word “immigrant”, sale by definition, connotes permanent resident status not automatically granted to all well-intentioned illegals – further reason to disregard United States law.
This is obviously a substantial problem. With so many legal citizens currently expressing violent hatred toward authority, e.g. anti-cop sentiment and students ousting college administrators like at the University of Missouri, the problem is likely exacerbated by potential anti-American illegals gaining more power through DACA and related programs.
DACA, created in 2012, helps illegal agents gain political power by granting them a special status if they qualify for the program. To qualify agents must be deemed not a threat to national security — likely under a loose interpretation under President Obama’s oversight — or have been convicted of a felony or significant misdemeanor.
Further illegal agents must be currently in school, a high school graduate, or have received an honorable discharge from the military. Should the illegal agent meet these criteria they are then eligible for a special and renewable two-year status that protects against deportation and grants eligibility for a work permit.
Although parts of the program later introduced in 2014 have been blocked by the U.S. Supreme Court decision in United States v. Texas (2016), the original 2012 program has yet to be dissolved. What’s at stake is not solely the lives of parents and children, but domestic security.
While we all understand the heartening importance of family, care, and love, by personal experience, we tend to forget that governmental stability and national security are the means by which all affectionate acts can be safely exchanged. More anti-American sentiment produced by DACA and the resulting invading agents would not resolve the anti-American problem plaguing our country. Instead, a failure to repeal all of DACA locks in illegal agents who show little signs of putting America first. For a country divided, that’s no sign of progress. Progress fully deporting DACA onto the wrong side of history and out of the law books.
