Legal Immigrants Are Glad DACA Is Finished

The media is already preparing its narrative, that 800,000 poor little children are about to be deported by the evil Trump administration. They are out there looking for little Elián González to film as DHS agents rip him from his home.

But legal immigrants don’t feel the same way. Blogger “Ornery Young Gunz” was “fiercely NeverTrump” prior to the election. Now he, like us here at The Resurgent, is calling them as he sees them.

His Twitter thread lays bare the injustice of DACA.

He told me:

We are a nation of immigrants. We’re also a nation of laws. We should be able to balance these two things in a way that supports entrepreneurship, liberty, and the Rule of Law.

DACA is lawless, unfair, unjust, and compassionless. The media will try to paint its disposal as an act of a heartless president. But it’s not. DACA was the act of a heartless president to begin with, one who would not accept the will of Congress–for ill or for good–and took it into his own hands to decide who gets special treatment, and who gets deported.

Regardless of the costs, following the Constitution is always the best path, and those immigrants who are here legally know it better than all the CNN sob stories you’re about to hear.
