When it comes to demanding amnesty for illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Democrat leaders are giving up on trying to shut down the federal government by holding up the upcoming spending bill unless DACA amnesty is included.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), a prominent defender of open borders in the Senate, has hinted at only supporting a spending bill that includes amnesty for illegal aliens.
For example, a DACA amnesty would put more citizen children of illegal aliens — known as “anchor babies” — on federal welfare, as Breitbart News reported, while American taxpayers would be left with, potentially, a $26 billion bill.
Any plan to give amnesty to DACA illegal aliens that does not also include provisions to halve legal immigration levels — the U.S. admits more than one million legal immigrants a year at the expense of America’s working and middle class — would give amnestied illegal aliens the opportunity to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country.

Trump created the Dreamer crisis when he ended DACA. We must continue to fight for the thousands of young people whose lives were thrown into chaos by this decision and give them the security they deserve.
