“We are going to do whatever it takes to push both parties to pursue what we are demanding,” said Cristina Jiménez, executive director of United We Dream. “We don’t want a situation where my brother, who has DACA, will have relief from deportation, and we will have more enforcement and more ICE agents who end up going after my mom and my dad.”

Cristina: you're pissing off too many people. Tho that might be what it takes to deport you Dream Act people.

Domino effect,
Snowball effect
Give an inch, they take a mile,
Camels nose under the tent,
Slippery slope...

Of course allowing the illegal "dreamers" to stay isn't enough, now their illegal parents, and probably uncles, third cousins, close friend, have to be allowed amnesty too.

Yep, this is why I am skeptical of any plans to benefit "dreamers." While I can emphasize with their plight, you very well know that it won't stop with them given the whole "breaking up families" narratives.

Agreed tho the dominos are going the OTHER way with more and more people, including some illegal alien fans, saying the Dream Act people have gone too far.

Yep, these DACAs are proving me right more and more every day. I knew from the get go that their goal was to to demand that all of their family members here illegally be able to remain here also. It's not just about themselves. I asked them some of them about it in other forums as to why they'd want to remain here while their parents were deported and all I got was silence. They wanted to keep it quiet what their ultimate goal was.

The Raise Act should be passed first, which prohibits chain migration from legal immigrants. Very important if DACA people are made legal.

If we gave amnesty to every single illegal alien in America today there would be celebrations in the streets well some streets and the end of the Republicans in higher office.

And we all know that tomorrow we would once again have a problem with illegal aliens sneaking in and taking advantage of our generosity.

It would be never ending until America is crushed under the burden and devolves into a third world country and guess what when this once great country is drained dry "they" can go back home but where are we going to go?

This issue will be enough of an excuse to kill DACA entirely and make Trump look clean. He undid Obama's illegal order and kicked back to the house and Senate counting on them to play their usual games and not come up with a deal. DACA ending and more illegals being booted out only help Republicans. The majority of the country wants border control and deportation of illegal aliens.
