Let’s be honest: Democrats don’t actually care about DREAMers

This double-talk might seem contradictory, but this is a classic move from the party that purports to be all about the little guy.

“Democrats are very good at Spanish,” Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd last week. “One word: mañana — tomorrow. . . They talk about how they are there for immigrants, but when it counts and when it matters they usually put their party before their principles in terms of our immigrant community.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself. The truth is, they don’t want to actually fix our country’s broken immigration system. They want to keep our borders porous and to neuter Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from doing its job and deporting those who overstay their visas or enter without one because Democrats want people to enter this country illegally. A porous border creates political pressure for amnesty. They also want to keep these people permanently disenfranchised — forever resigned to live in the shadows, wholly dependent on the mercy of the Democratic Party.
