If there’s one thing leftists are good at, it’s demanding the government cater to their whims and provide whatever their hearts desire.
In this case, it’s thousands of illegal immigrants — you know, those folks from other countries who sneak into ours, take jobs, and pay no taxes — demanding Obama pardon them to avoid being deported by Donald Trump.
This right here is a key reason why The Donald won.
The Washington Times is reporting, Illegal immigrants are preparing to ask President Obama to pardon some 750,000 illegal immigrant Dreamers, saying it’s their last, best hope to stave off what they fear will be a wave of deportations once Donald Trump takes office.
Community leaders have planned a rally in New York on Wednesday to make the request.
“Millions of law abiding undocumented immigrants are fearful of what will happen when the new Administration takes control in January,” the group said in a statement announcing the rally. “However, President Obama has the power of pardons that he can use to protect all DACA enrollees.”
As of September, more than 740,000 illegal immigrants had been approved for Mr. Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, a mini-amnesty that grants young adult illegal immigrants a two-year stay of deportation and issues them work permits, entitling them to driver’s licenses and some taxpayer benefits.
President-elect Donald Trump has signaled he would cancel that order, putting Mr. Obama in a bind. The president said this week that Mr. Trump should go slowly on rolling back those actions.
Rosemary Jenks, government relations manager at NumbersUSA, which lobbies for stricter immigration enforcement, said an Obama pardon could erase from their records the illegal behavior of entering the country illegally. But the president couldn’t put illegal immigrants on a pathway to citizenship through a pardon.
It’s infuriating that illegals break our laws to gain entrance to our nation, mooch off our taxpayer-funded welfare system, avoid paying into that system, and then want to be pardoned for breaking the law to avoid negative consequences for their unlawful actions.
Are these people nuts?
Liberals speak of equality often, but where is the equality here? If these people get pardoned, it’s clear they have more rights than the average American and are a favored class of people, protected by the government and elevated above the rest.
How is that equality? How is it equality to be paying astronomical tax rates in order to pay for illegals to have free food and health care, while the rest of the citizenry struggles to get by and provide for their own families?
The madness has to stop. Let’s hope Trump can make his immigration plan happen sooner rather than later.
