The Dreamers Trump is double-crossing

Huffington Post -There seems to be a lot of misinformation swirling about on DACA, so let’s first go over the basics:
  • DACA was implemented through executive order by the Obama administration in 2012.
  • The law grants deferred action (protection from deportation) for people who were brought to the United States illegally as children.
  • Being granted deferred action does not provide legal status or future amnesty.
  • DACA recipients (DREAMers) must apply for renewal of deferred action status every two years.
  • Renewal costs applicants $495.
Eligibility is contingent upon applicants meeting the seven following requirements:
  1. Were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012;
  2. Came to the United States before reaching your 16th birthday;
  3. Have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007, up to the present time;
  4. Were physically present in the United States on June 15, 2012, and at the time of making your request for consideration of deferred action with USCIS;
  5. Had no lawful status on June 15, 2012;
  6. Are currently in school, have graduated or obtained a certificate of completion from high school, have obtained a general education development (GED) certificate, or are an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States; and
  7. Have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, or three or more other misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.
  • The average DREAMer came to U.S. at six years old, is now in his/her early 20s, is employed and in school.
  • The college attrition rate for Dreamers is almost non-existent.
  • Reports have shown that ending DACA would decrease state and local revenue by an estimated $800 million per year.

    According to a study by Tom K. Wong for the University of California, San Diego:
  • 63% of DREAMers obtained a better paying job.
  • 64.5% bought their first car.
  • 15.7% bought their first home.
  • 61% opened a bank account.
  • 68.5% obtained a job with better pay.
  • 52.5% are currently pursing a bachelors degree.
  • 19% are currently pursing advanced degrees (masters degree, advanced professional degree, doctorate).
  • Average annual earning increased from 20k to 36k.
  • 98.1% are bilingual.

63% "obtained a better-paying job"?

How nice for them. Who would have got those jobs otherwise?

Back in the '70s, I traveled on business. Nearly all the hotel housekeeping staff were Black women, citizens. I used to chat with them because they had interesting lives, generally the sole support of their family and determined to see their kids through university or technical school come hell or high water.

When I quit needing to travel, in the late '80s, the staff had "somehow" metamorphosed into small, almost furtive women with a Central American look to them who spoke a language that might as well have been Linear A - I couldn't understand a word except by accident.

Where did those Black women go? Did they become CEOs? Engineers? Doctors? Anything that paid as much or better than housekeeping? I doubt it: like most of the working class, they'd been short-changed of a decent education. Did they keep their housekeeping job long enough to get their kids through school? Were they still employed at all after the furtive women replaced them? I wonder.

Isn't it amazing that, even when talking about non-citizens and their goals, Black lives matter less. To the extent that they matter at all, that is.

The"Open Borders" agenda is one of the pillars of the globalist plantation system.

As usual, "liberals" are being used to further the agenda by appealing to their misplaced sympathies - while they ignore all the damage done to the living standards of the bottom 95%.
