As you know, last week President Trump rolled back Obama's 2012 Executive Order that granted special treatment to illegal immigrants who came to America as children. Those 'children' are now in their 20s and 30s, therefore old enough to know right from wrong.
I myself am an immigrant. I too had dreams - dreams of my home country, Argentina, to one day do something different, better and highly unusual for any country in Latin America: RESPECT THE LAW. Argentina has had all sorts of issues - political and economic - for the simple fact that they refuse to respect the law they themselves enact. In some ways they operate like the Deep State in the US - there's a set of rules for the common people, and then there's another set of rules for people like Hillary Clinton.
But when I was young, I didn't see America's Deep State. Argentina has a deep state of its own, and it's what's ruined the country. When I was young, I dreamed about coming to America, because of its RULE OF LAW. I was tired of the special privileges that the ruling class had in Argentina and I wanted a fair shot at life and prosperity. You can't have that when taxation eats up most of your income and rules change overnight, putting you always at risk of being out-of-compliance in some aspect of what you do. It's by design, in case you're wondering. The deep state everywhere in the world wants to keep you on your toes and have the ability to arrest you or fine you as they wish.
Now, since my desire was to take a break from the disaster that is Latin America, I wanted to come to a place where rules didn't change overnight, and I could have some certainty that any legal action I would take or could be taken against me would be dealt with by the magistrates according to the law.
Sure, this was all long before that baker in Colorado was condemned for denying a wedding cake to a gay couple...
But in any case, at the time in the early 2000s, long before you could be condemned for not wanting to violate your faith, America was a decent country. America was a country where you could do whatever you wanted, as long as it was legal. In Argentina you could also do whatever you wanted, as long as you didn't get caught.
Never in a million years did I consider coming to America ILLEGALLY. NEVER!
And I had a child when I came here, who was 13 at the time. We waited, we planned and we did everything in a legal manner, because what I wanted more than anything was RULE OF LAW. And I wasn't going to expose my OWN CHILD to breaking the law. No way!
These 'dreamers' are not kids. And I would like to ask them what their dreams are, because clearly the rule of law isn't one of them.
There are many reasons why people come to America - GREED is one of them. When you're willing to break the law - or keep breaking it if your parents were the ones putting you in this position - then, where does it end? Where do you draw the line? Are you willing to STEAL? To KILL? You're already breaking the law, so what truly brings you here? The answer is...money, of course.
Prosperity is a top priority in these "dreamers'" minds. Not that there's anything wrong with prosperity. But when you're willing to break the law for money, then you're greedy. And there's no telling how far you're willing to go for money.
Dreamers have a CHOICE. They could continue breaking the law or they could just do the right thing: go back home and start a new, legal, process to come to America.
Dreamers remind me of Michael Corleone in 'The Godfather'. Michael (played by Al Pacino) was a member of a family of mobsters, with the Godfather, Don Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando) at the helm. With no fault of his own Michael was BORN into a family of criminals. And he kept telling his girlfriend Kay (Diane Keaton) that he wanted nothing to do with the family business. This went on until Vito was the target of a murder attempt.
What happened next?
Michael had a CHOICE.
What did he choose?
To finally join the family and continue ... breaking the law.
Obviously the movie, which was produced in leftist Hollywood, tries to justify Michael's decision as the 'natural thing to do' when your father's life is at stake. It tries to tell you that you would do the same thing as Michael did - assassinate the Chief of Police who had attempted to kill his father. The movie really doesn't leave the viewer an option - but the truth is we ALL have options. If you want to learn right from wrong, you don't watch The Godfather - you read the Bible.
The Godfather is an interesting movie that not only shows the choices human beings face - it also shows the DEEP STATE at work. After all, the Godfather owned Senators, Chiefs of Police, journalists, etc. etc. The godfathers of the world used to be called mobsters. We now call them LOBBYISTS. But this is a topic for another article.
Dreamers face the same types of decisions. They have a CHOICE. Either they join their families in continuing breaking the law, or they do the right thing.
They've CHOSEN to break the law.
As an immigrant myself, now a proud US Citizen, I find it disgusting that the Left would play down the importance of respecting the law.
But then again, the Left hardly ever respects the law. Look at ANTIFA, or Hillary, or Bill Clinton. The Left and the Constitution can never be reconciled.
Dreamers should do the right thing. Like Jim Carrey's character, lawyer Fletcher Reed, yells at one of his clients over the phone in the movie 'Liar Liar', after his client got arrested again: STOP BREAKING THE LAW!
'You must obey all my decrees and regulations. You must not commit any of these detestable sins. This applies both to native-born Israelites and to the foreigners living among you'
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
