“Dreamers” versus babies! As the nation watched our government shut down for 2 days this past weekend over the issue of what to do with “Dreamers,” I watched the debate rage on and wondered why not one person made a very legitimate contrast of the “Dreamer” issue with babies. Let me explain. Depending on whose numbers you believe, there are apx. 800,000 people in this “Dreamer” category. As argued by their advocates, most were brought to this country as children by their parents who entered our country illegally. To correctly address this issue, the FACT is, they are illegal aliens and have ZERO RIGHT to be in this country regardless the circumstances of how they got here.
Now, unlike their parents who clearly understood they were breaking our laws by coming into the United States without proper documentation, these “Dreamers” do have many sympathizing with their plight based on the fact it was not their choice to be here illegally. The fact is, the first two years of the Obama administration, his party controlled the House, had a fillibuster proof 60 votes in the Senate, and could have passed legislation regarding the “Dreamers” without one Republican vote. Obviously, that didn’t happen and whatever anger there is by people regarding this issue, it should be placed at the feet of the Obama administration and the Democratic Party.
Instead of passing legitimate legislation, President Obama authored an unconstitutional Executive Order giving the “Dreamer” class of illegal immigrants the right to stay in this country and be treated not much different than a legitimate US citizen. As promised, President Trump tore up that Executive Order as was his right to do, and gave Congress until March 5th to settle the “Dreamer” issue correctly, WITH LEGISLATION! No doubt we will see this drama continue to unfold in the coming weeks, months, and probably years with no resolution.
The contrast I want to make is between this “Dreamer” group and babies, more specifically babies in the womb! I find it disgusting that the vast majority of those advocates and politicians supporting “Dreamers,” also advocate for and vote for the slaughter of innocent babies who by law are American citizens. If you want to make the argument the “Dreamers” are in this country by no fault of their own, how about the argument that the apx. 4,000 babies slaughtered in this nation every 24 hours are killed without having done anything wrong except be given life by God our Creator!!!!!!!
I watch a pathetic human being like Illinois Congressna Luis Gutiérrez grandstand before cameras, crying crocodile tears as he talks about the “poor ‘Dreamer’ children.” By the way, a good percentage of these “Dreamers” are NOT children but adults! He cries how these “Dreamers” are police officers, serve in our military, are doctors, and virtually everyone seems to be a class valedictorian. The fact is the high school dropout rate amongst the “Dreamer” class is 21%, far above the national high school dropout average of 5.9%. 22% of “Dreamers” achieve a Bachelor’s Degree compared to 32% of all Americans who hold a Bachelor’s degree. Lastly, the claims that those “Dreamers” commit less crime than the native population are also false.
As the cameras are turned off and Gutierrez amazingly is crying no longer, he runs to the House floor to cast his latest vote to slaughter truly innocent AMERICAN BABIES! During his entire political career, Gutierrez has voted 100% for the slaughter of innocent American babies. This is true of virtually ALL politicians who advocate for those illegal aliens in the “Dreamer” class.
WHAT IS POSSIBLY IN THEIR HEART AND MIND THAT ALLOWS THEM TO BE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT CHILDREN AND YOUNG ADULTS WHO ARE IN THIS COUNTRY ILLEGALLY, VIOLATING THE VERY LAWS OF OUR NATION THESE POLITICIANS TOOK AN OATH TO UPHOLD, YET WHEN IT COMES TO THE TRULY INNOCENT WHO DID NOTHING BUT BE GIVEN LIFE BY GOD, THEY HAVE NO PROBLEM SUPPORTING THEIR SLAUGHTER!!!
I love you and care about you so much. I realize that this is a passionate issue for many. Those who support killing innocent babies justify their choice by stating it is the law of the land. The law of the land also says that only those who are in this country LEGALLY are able to stay. If Congress wants to change either of these laws, let them do it. But I find is sad that the government will continue enforce the law that allows the slaughter of apx 4,000 innocent babies across this nation each day. When are they going to start enforcing our immigration laws???
