DACA deal: These Dreamers will leave the U.S. if Congress fails to find a fix - Feb. 7, 2018

At least some of them are smart. This is how it should be. Leave on your own before they come to throw you out.

Sounds good to me.
If these people truly love America they should realize that we are a nation of laws that keep the whole place from collapsing. We cannot have people living on the wrong side of the law and exceptions should not be made for them.
It is not fair to the millions of legal immigrants that followed the laws.

The DACA kids were brought to America by their illegal alien parents. OK Here is thought. If a drug dealer that is rolling in money from his business and his kids have grown accustomed to the fancy cars and big house then he gets arrested. Generally the property is seized by the Police, ATF but maybe we should let the kids keep all the stuff that was bought with money from the drug sales?
People should not benefit from breaking the law because if enough do then why have laws at all?

Without a deal that builds the wall and stops chain migration, the lottery system and implementing e-verify I don't want any illegal alien getting in front of the line for citizenship.

Looks like the democrats in congress just caved again....Democrats taking the side of illegal aliens over US legal citizens seems to have back fired on them and the democrats are losing support on this issue.

The Dems should lose support for this issue.
It is simply insane to put the needs of illegal aliens over the needs of citizens and legal immigrants.
Sanctuary cities? It is all a big pile of stupid feel good policies that appeal to the big hearts of the Liberals and leaves the rest of us guessing how unsecured borders, amnesty for millions of people that are trespassing and not following our most basic laws is a good thing for America.
It has to be about creating a future voter base. It has to be.

Their assets should be seized and returned to the taxpayers.

Do they expect people to say "No! Wait! Stop!"?

I think many have burned out on DACA and really don't care what happens to them now. It was a BIG mistake for the Dems to put the interest of illegal aliens ahead of those of our citizens.

It was definitely a failed message...remember the first two guests at the DNC convention in 2016? Two illegals. That election didn't work out. Among traditional Democratic voters they are definitely losing support because the Dems priorities are out of whack...then the shutdown ...everyone is like over illegal immigrants really?

You can kid yourself all you want but most people here illegally are not going anywhere. The government isn't going to do anything about it either. Wall Street isn't going to accept that.
