Demonstrators gather in support of DACA
A group of demonstrators gathered with signs in Mac Dutra Plaza early Tuesday evening to show their support of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The U.S. Supreme Court heard three cases earlier in the day that challenge President Trump's 2017 decision to end deportation protection for undocumented minors commonly referred to as Dreamers.

In the movie "Dr. Zhivago" Yuri returns to his pre-Bolshevik fiancés elegant Tsarist-era home only to find it trashed and several Bolsheviks living there. The area administrator assigns him and his fiancés family a living area. Yuri sarcastically tells the official "Yes, comrade, this is a much better arrangement than before!"

Yes, comrade, Clay, America will be much better when the migrants take over than before, when the capitalists created wealth!

Considering Trumps immigration policy is driven by Stephen Miller, who promoted white nationalist material and racist immigration material to Breitbart in 2016, I side with the DACA recipients.

A day or two ago one or the pro-"poor DACA's" media publicized the plight of a DACA woman.  At age 35, she was already a mother of 2 and grandmother of 3 children!  How many more if she becomes a great grandmother?  This kind of exponential population growth is what to expect if DACA is retained without an end to  chain migration!

DACA FAIRNESS, YES!  WITHOUT AN END TO CHAIN MIGRATION, NO!

These demonstrators are not protesting for any kind of fair treatment for DACA's.  What they want is CHAIN MIGRATION and OPEN BORDERS.

Even before DACA, the political activist talking point was how food production would collapse without migrant labor.  I remember discussions with a friend in which I pointed out that the immigration problem was not with the estimated 500,000 farm workers but, rather, the 20 million relatives they brought with them!

These activists don't want DACA justice.

President Trump offered them a VERY fair deal.  He offered amnesty to 1.8 million legitimate DACA's.   But, he rightfully insisted on closing the border to further illegal immigration; ending chain migration; and ending the insane then-allowed lottery entry system. 

No, these demonstrations are not at all about DACA's but about unchecked illegal entry into a US with open borders.

DACA FAIRNESS ABSOLUTELY! WITHOUT AN END TO CHAIN MIGRATION, ABSOLUTELY NOT!

Limited Futures : For every DACA who has studied and achieved and taken a position in society there is a citizen or legal resident who is not occupying that position. The latter also had dreams.

Do any of the "protestors" know why Chuck Schumer turned down a deal to fix DACA? Seems odd that a program created via an unconstitutional executive order would be something he might want to save.
