JUST IN: A major announcement was just made about Barack Obama’s precious DREAMers that has left the entire nation stunned.
In what can only be described as the ultimate dose of irony, a group of DREAMers are threatening to leave the U.S. if Donald Trump refuses to extend the the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive order, which is meant to keep them in the U.S.
“I will leave. I will leave America as soon as possible,” DREAMer Alex Velez told CNN, adding that she would rather leave the U.S. on her own terms than be deported.
Daily Wire reported that these DREAMers seem to theorize that if DREAMers disappear, Americans will suddenly notice their absence. Velez claims that because she and her sister own businesses, pay tuition, and hold jobs, Americans have a duty to keep them here so that they can maintain these contributions. Unfortunately for them, however, striking against the U.S. for refusing to accommodate them isn’t a plan with a likely payoff. Their home country of Venezuela is currently crumbling under a dictator — so the theory that they’d return to a more awesome place to show President Trump what he’s missing might not pan out.
If a comprehensive immigration reform plan is not approved by early next month, DACA recipients will be allowed to finish out the term of their amnesty contract before being declared “illegal.” President Trump has already made it clear that DACA recipients who overstay will not be targeted for deportation, so what Velez and her fellow DREAMers is melodramatic to say the least.
“Any deal on DACA that does not include STRONG border security and the desperately needed WALL is a total waste of time,” Trump wrote on Twitter earlier this week.
Any deal on DACA that does not include STRONG border security and the desperately needed WALL is a total waste of time. March 5th is rapidly approaching and the Dems seem not to care about DACA. Make a deal!
