TOMI LAHREN'S FINAL THOUGHTS COMMENTARIES ARE EXCLUSIVELY ON FOX NEWS INSIDER.
It’s time for Final Thoughts. Let’s talk about the Dreamers.
But wait. You thought I meant the illegal immigrant children living in this country? No, I’m not talking about those “Dreamers.” Not yet.
I’m talking about American dreamers. The American mothers and fathers who bust their butts day-in and day-out to send their American-born children to college - without the special perks, the scholarships, the benefits afforded to many DACA recipients.
You wanna talk Dreamers? Let’s talk also about the LEGAL immigrant parents who spent thousands of dollars, and how many hours waiting in line to come here the right way- to build a better life by teaching their children to respect the rule of law in the country they now call home.
That’s the American dream. That’s the dream and the hope and the goal this country should stand for.
So where did we go wrong? When did “Dreamer” become the new descriptor for “illegal immigrant?” Well, look no further than the source of several other American “fundamental changes”- Barack Obama.
The DACA program- Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals - was a load of garbage from the start, and a prime example of executive overreach. President Obama used his pen and his phone to slap legal Americans in the face - after midterm elections, when he could get away with it.
As many as 800,000 so-called “Dreamers” have applied to join the program since its inception in 2012. In fact, 200,000 more have sought DACA bubble-wrap since Trump became president. Some experts estimate the program could cover as many as 1.3 million young people if it were to continue.
Does anyone else see a problem with that?
I get it - they are already here. It’s not their fault. Blah Blah. Okay - how did they get here in the first place? Those weak little things to north and the south the Democrats call “borders.” It’s not a border if it’s not enforced. It’s just a “feeling” like everything else the bleeding hearts advocate.
Listen here: President Trump has already agreed to negotiate DACA and protect your “dreamers.” But if you think he’s going to shield almost a million illegals AND leave the border limp, weak, and exposed- you must not know President Trump.
The fact Democrats won’t budge on this deal is very telling. They don’t care about these so-called “dreamers,” and they sure as heck don’t care about keeping American borders safe. All this “dreamer” cheerleading is nothing more than thinly veiled emotional blackmail. Don’t fall for it.
Ball is in your court, Democrats. Let’s play.
Those are my Final Thoughts. From LA, God Bless and take care.
