Forget what Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are saying in public. Forget about all of the rhetoric you’re hearing about a “deal” being made to include DACA (Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals) amnesty in exchange for funding the government or passing tax cuts. It’s not going to happen. The reason is simple.
Democrats and Independents don’t think it’s a big deal.
Yeah…I know, right? After all the caterwalling and name calling over having to have a DACA amnesty tied to whatever the Republicans want, one thing stands clear. Only 20% of Democrats and Independents consider a DACA amnesty of any importance in a poll POLITICO and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health . That means that 80% of the people that should want DACA amnesty the most… don’t really care. There are bigger things on their plates. The poll itself was skewed in favor of Democrats and Independents. And it says one other thing that comes through loud and clear:
Democrats are totally out of touch not just with Americans, but with their own party.
Does that surprise anybody? Democrats have been out of touch for a LONG time. Look at what has happened during the Obama years as an example. They lost over 1,000 seats in local, state, and federal government. They haven’t really begun to gain many of them back…certainly not to the point where it’s showing dividends. Republicans took over both houses of congress, and hold 33 Governors’ Mansions. That’s an incredibly large number! And since Donald Trump was elected president, what’s happened? Well, the Democrats thought they could take over the seats that were vacated when Trump appointed the various Senators and Representatives to his cabinet, but they’ve failed at every turn. And the economy has roared back to life. The stock market has set all-time highs and the unemployment rate is at near-record lows.
Yes…Trump is still not loved by the masses, but they aren’t complaining about the results he’s achieving economically. And with the Democrats stepping all over themselves with sexual abuse and harassment cases in both houses of Congress, in Hollywood, and in general, it’s interesting to see what is going to be happening there as well. Not to say the GOP hasn’t been totally squeaky clean on this one. They’ve lost two members of the House who are either resigning or won’t seek reelection because of their mis-deeds. And then you’ve got the mud slinging at Roy Moore, who is alleged to have had some problems in that arena some 30-40 years ago…which no one can prove.
But as far as the illegal immigrants are concerned, I wouldn’t expect a lot to happen with these kids…now adults. Yes, they were brought to this country illegally by their parents (who are still here for the most part), and yes, for the most part, these kids have been productive members of society. But if you’re going to slam Roy Moore for something he allegedly did (without proof) only because you “believe” his accusers…you have to send the DACA kids back. They still broke the law. Roy Moore hasn’t been found guilty of anything, and it’s no different than a he said/she said. And the funny thing about that case is that every single woman that’s come forward is a Democrat. Imagine that!
DACA is dead…and Democrats are still way out of touch. So, basically nothing has changed.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
