Finally, some gratefulness and common sense out of the mouth of a ‘Dreamer.” As a group, ‘Dreamers’ have become an entitled group that makes demands on a government they have no right to a voice in.
Last week, they even threatened to leave the the country if their demands were not met! So there is no doubt, by and large, we are dealing with a group of delusional young people who refuse to see that their parents made this mess for them, not President Trump.
However, all hope is not lost. A conservative voice from the ‘Dreamers’ has emerged and is setting the internet aflame by stating what should be obvious: ‘Dreamers’ ought to be grateful that they have been shown the compassion they have received. They should realize that they are here ILLEGALLY and that they should humbly ask to stay in our country and recognize the privilege that it would be, instead of demanding it like spoiled brats.
Further, if they are allowed to stay, which seems to be almost a certainty at this point, it would be in their best interest to get on board to limit further illegal immigration in the future.

A Mexican native whose mother brought him to America at age 1 said President Trump has shown “leadership and compassion” toward DACA recipients like himself, while Democrats have conversely used them as “pawns.”
Hilario Yanez, who goes by Eli, said Trump showed courage to tackle the illegal immigration issue comprehensively during his first year in office.
“Here’s a guy who wants to provide a pathway to citizenship for myself and really make a difference in my life,” he said, adding that if the president believes a border wall is necessary for national security, then he would support it.
“I think it’s time for people who want to come to the United States to focus… on skills so [they]contribute to the American economy right way,” Yanez, who was born in Tampico, Tamaulipas said.
Yanez said top Democrats have “no clear message” on immigration policy, other than to “us[e]us as pawns.”
“They never should have shut down the government over DACA,” he said, mentioning Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) by name. “There is plenty of time on the table to fix this. March 5 is the deadline.”
Yanez said he gets “goosebumps” when he hears the “Star-Spangled Banner” and said he would never take a knee like some athletes have, and declared a willingness to serve in the armed forces if asked.
Now THIS seems like a ‘Dreamer’ I can support! I have always found it strange that these young people seem to think they can protest, demand and whine their way to citizenship! If you want to be welcome somewhere, how about showing a little gratitude and humility? Why not show your hosts why they should want you in their country? Making selfish and baseless demands just strengthens the argument against ‘Dreamers.’
The left would have us believe that this young man represents all ‘Dreamers.’ Hilario Yanez is a college graduate who overcame adversity with hard work and determination. He credits his conservative values and faith for his ability to “stand on his own two feet.” He didn’t get there by demanding that he is owed something he was not. Unfortunately, he is the exception, not the rule.
On March 5, 201 DACA work permits will begin to expire at the rate of about 1000 per day for the 1.8 million DACA recipients. Time is of the essence if immigration reform is going to give these people peace of mind. President Trump has been clear in what he expects in return for a path to citizenship for the ‘Dreamers:’ an end to chain migration, and end to the visa lottery program and, of course, money for the wall we so desperately need.
Democrats are predictably outraged at his demands, but they might be forgetting that the American people chose Donald Trump to be president largely in part to his insistence on the wall and protecting our borders. He must not cave on this.
This one man will do far more for the cause of ‘Dreamers’ than the thousands who have protested in the streets and continuously attack President Trump for not taking care of them. A little thankfulness goes a long way.
