Host Laura Ingraham tried to reason with the liberals in regards to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that is imposing harm on the American system.
The so-called Dreamers were the leading topic for discussion as Ingraham explained Trump’s decision to revoke Obama’s program was necessary to keep America’s integrity and stability.
“Americans are dreamers too. They have a lot of dreams that have not been fulfilled because of a variety of reasons. A lot of them have to do with politicians not doing what they said they would do,” she said.
“American citizens want a better life. They want their kids in schools that aren’t overcrowded. They want health care that doesn’t rise in its costs 20 percent, 18 percent a year, so that’s number one,” Ingraham noted.
In Ingraham’s mind, the issue might get the pity from the lefties, but it is a matter stipulated by law, nonetheless.
“We still are a nation of laws,” she said, dismissing the belief that American needs to “incentivize people who cross our borders illegally” and allow “a whole new level of chain migration” by granting DACA participants with amnesty privileges.
“I think people have to understand what the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is really all about. We’re not talking about mass deportation of people if Donald Trump doesn’t do what kind of the middle or the left wants him to do on this,” Ingraham said. “It’s about giving work permits and federal benefits to people who are as advanced in their age as the age of 36,” she continued.
Med.age of DREAMers is 23, eligible up to 36 yo, w/ misdemeanors. Not abt deportation–but granting work permits & fed benefits.

“People think we’re talking about like 10-, 11-year-old kids. The median age of dreamers is about 22, 23 years old. So those are things you have to take into account,” she said.
“For every sob story — and there are many of them … I can (tell) you a sob story or a difficult circumstance from an American citizen, as Donald Trump called them during the campaign, ‘the forgotten men and women,’” she said. “Those forgotten men and women who showed up were Hispanics, they were African-Americans, they were people from all walks of life.”
She appealed to Congress to obey the law, instead of acting against it.
“We don’t rule by emotion. We rule by law,” Ingraham pointed out. “So if Congress wants to push basically a de facto amnesty of a million people and think that somehow middle America is going to stand up and cheer, good luck.”
She talked about President Trump as well, pointing out the liberal efforts to ambush his every political decision:
“Remember how you won the presidency. You won the presidency by defying all these conventional wisdom-mongers and the usual suspects who are doing the bidding of big business, Silicon Valley, and all these other interest groups,” Ingraham said. “You won by standing for the forgotten man of every background, of every creed and of every religion. Those people need jobs. They need the government to do its job, which includes the rule of law. Remember who elected you.”
Summa summarum, it’s a point well made and we appreciated entities such as Ingraham who are unafraid to speak up on things that matter the most.
