What about our dreams?

In response to the letter to the editor of Marvin Eckfeldt to the Auburn Reporter (Jan. 12), may I say that most of the things he said in that letter were correct except that part where he said that “despite the rhetoric, immigrants commit less crime than native-born Americans.”

What rhetoric is he talking about? That rhetoric, he said, is a clear reflection of the lies of the fake news media.

DACA is not a law. It was an “illegal” executive order signed by President Barack Obama in 2012 against an existing law. Obama’s purpose was to protect young illegal aliens who came to the U.S. when they were children from deportation. He created this DACA with the understanding that Congress would then act to fix the immigration system. But then, as we know now, Congress reneged on their part of the deal. And whose fault is that? President Trump’s, of course, according to fake news media.

These young dreamers of DACA are illegal aliens. They don’t have any rights. But they sure know the system. They don’t pay taxes. They get free food, free housings, free medical care … and free education, paid by us, citizens, of this country. They’ve been riding the Trump Train and receiving these privileges for so many years now.

Illegal aliens, young and old alike, do not have the constitutional rights to be here in the United States. Folks, please don’t blame President Trump for any of that. He merely follows America’s constitutional law. Let’s listen to what he said about dreamers: “We’re always talking about dreamers from other countries. I want the children of the United States to have dreams also.”

Yes, America first.
