Ann Coulter recently crafted an excellent review of what happens when Republicans buy into Democrat lies on amnesty.
In this case, President Donald J. Trump seems inclined to abandon his voters to pander to the Left. That never works.
There is no life, logic or Liberty on the Left, but that’s my line – Coulter makes more specific historical points on amnesty.
Donald Trump is being told that amnesty for “Dreamers,” or DACA recipients, will only apply to a small, narrowly defined group of totally innocent, eminently deserving illegal immigrants, who were brought to this country “through no fault of their own” as “children.” (Up to 36 years old.)
Every syllable of that claim is a lie, and I can prove it.
To see how DACA will actually work, let’s look at another extremely limited amnesty that was passed in 1986.
Farmers wanted temporary guest-worker permits for their cheap labor, so that they could continue pretending that the Industrial Revolution never happened and refuse to mechanize. (And, boy, did that work! We haven’t heard a peep about “crops rotting in the fields” since then.)
The agricultural amnesty was supposed to apply to — at most — 350,000 illegal aliens. It would be available only to illegals who were currently in the country doing the back-breaking farm work that no American would do. Without them, crops would wither on the vine. They were saving us from starvation!
Talk about deserving. Are any Dreamers saving us from starvation?
But instead of guest-worker permits, then-Rep. Charles Schumer — from the lush farmland of Brooklyn — decided to grant full amnesty to any illegals who had done farm work for at least 90 days in the previous year.
That’s pretty restrictive, isn’t it?
In the end, “up to 350,000 farm workers” turned into 1.3 million.
