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.

New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol
Order Must be Restored
On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests escalated at the United States Capitol.
The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings.
The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:
Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.
We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.
U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly.
On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
