BIDEN OP-ED: Make DREAMers Citizens!

American youths have dreams too.

Published

on

Former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden Jr. said in a Miami Herald opinion piece that beneficiaries of president Barack H. Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program should officially be made U.S. citizens.

“The next president must institute effective immigration reform while restoring regional policies grounded in respect,” Biden said. “That starts by recognizing that DREAMers are Americans, and Congress needs to make it official.”

DACA recipients, commonly referred to as “DREAMers,” are children of illegal aliens who were brought to the United States at a young age, and grew up here. Officially, there are somewhere around one million DACA recipients living in the United States. Detractors of the proposition of granting DACE recipients citizenship point towards the failure of president Ronald Reagan’s 1986 amnesty, which promised border security and strict work rules for newly-minted citizens which have never been realized. U.S. immigration courts are still processing claims from the Reagan amnesty today.

But Biden, likely recognizing that one million new voters would greatly benefit Democrats in swing states like Florida, wants to repeat Reagan’s mistake.

“We are a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants,” he said. “Our country is made up of hard-working, aspirational people from every culture, from every nation — and that is an indisputable strength. There’s no better example of the richness that’s possible when the United States is closely knit together with our neighbors in Latin America and the Caribbean than the city of Miami.”

What better way to prove that America is a “nation of laws” than rewarding those who have broken America’s laws with citizenship – all while legal immigrants wait in line, pay thousands of dollars, and pass through a rigorous vetting process before they are granted the same access.

Bloomberg Takes Lead in New National Democratic Primary Poll

The Democratic party might actually sell its nomination to the authoritarian oligarch.

Published

on

Michael Bloomberg has taken the lead in a new national poll of the Democratic presidential primary, suggesting that the party may actually sell its nomination to the radical authoritarian oligarch.

The poll from Rasmussen Reports, released on Friday, has the former New York City mayor taking 26% support from national Democratic likely primary voters. Joe Biden comes in second with 22%, and Bernie Sanders comes in third with 18%.

The poll is possibly a sign of the strength of Bloomberg’s candidacy, which has adopted an approach of almost openly buying the support of prominent Democrats and carpet-bombing the airwaves of Super Tuesday states with unprecedented levels of campaign ad spending.

Bloomberg wasn’t even on the ballot in the Iowa Caucuses or New Hampshire primary, so his strength is real electoral contests is yet to be demonstrated. But it’s clear the ultra-billionaire, with a whopping net worth of more than $50 billion dollars, is a serious contender for the nomination, even though he shamelessly intends to buy it.

Ultimately Bloomberg’s biggest hindrance may be an abundance of “moderate” centrist candidates who are still competing in the Democratic primary. Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg draw from the wing of the Democratic Party opposed to a Bernie Sanders nomination, who appears to be the implicit front-runner after winning the Iowa and New Hampshire primaries.

Bloomberg initially entered the race with an unwritten desire to block Sanders. The Vermont Democratic socialist takes the lead in several other polls of the national race, and he largely appears to be the candidate to beat until a candidate from the centrist wing can muster enough support to dominate their lane of the party.

The authoritarian mayor’s performance in the Super Tuesday primaries may dictate whether or not his campaign can actually take the nomination, or is little more than an expensive vanity project.
