I have noticed that anyone promoting illegal aliens of the DACA variety fail to mention that. I did note that many DACA from low income families attend college. I can't help but wonder where the money came from having come from a ow income family myself, but I am betting I helped pay for their education, and deserving citizens were pushed aside in the name of "minority" status getting grants, etc.

With the college educated, they are holding jobs that Americans MOST certainly want to do. And, we have a LOT of citizens who have only a high school education that want jobs to do.

I just wonder how many are riding on the "minority" status. That was meant for citizens!

Demanding and getting seems to be two different things.

As long as the politician says the right things?

We will not force them to stay here, once they are simply illegal aliens again.

How? Do not re-elect them when they lie to you.

Only because you make excuses for them and re-elect them.

Why do you keep pointing your finger at me. I'm just one vote. Do you even know what I voted for or against? I didn't think so. Who or what did you vote for?

Well, most of us that oppose illegal immigration and want our laws enforced voted for Trump, a huge improvement over Obama and Hillary had promised amnesty in her first 100 days, so many of us did our part.

As far as federal elected officials, it is much more difficult to get change. I vote, and contact my representatives, but they have big pockets being filled by those who benefit from illegal immigration.

It only makes sense that some DACA will follow their families "home", the sooner the better and then everyone can move on.

My state went for Hillary. My vote, if it were for Trump, wouldn't matter.
