DACA Recipient is Endorsing Houston Republican Candidates

Published

on

Why is a DACA recipient endorsing 2020 Republican Congressional and judicial candidates for the Texas GOP primary?

According to sources close to BLP, Hilario Yanez, a beneficiary of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, has endorsed candidates in the Houston area as an Advisory Board member of the Houston Business Realty Coalition PAC.

Yanez came illegally to the United States as a young child.

He is now authorized to say and work in the U.S. thanks to DACA, which then-President Barack Obama implemented without congressional approval, while Republicans objected to the process on constitutional grounds.

Establishment GOP types have generally promoted Yanez as a way of hitting back at Democrats for their obstructive ways.

Yanez was invited to speak before a Congressional hearing last year to talk about his experience which was played on C-SPAN.

Although Yanez supports DACA’s aim of letting young immigrants who entered the country illegally as children stay in America, he doesn’t think the process is legal.

“I believe what former President Obama did was the right thing to do but the wrong way to do it, which is why I believe DACA is unconstitutional and why President Trump has every right to get rid of it,” Yanez said during a testimony before the judiciary committee last year. “The best way then and today is action by Congress.”

“Let’s stand behind a permanent solution to DACA and border security reform and fix it once and for all,” Yanez concluded in his testimony.

Although Yanez has supported Republican causes, U.S. immigration laws should still be respected.

The GOP should have thought twice before giving the DACA recipient a platform and letting him join their ranks.

If the GOP wants to be taken more seriously and maintain its political viability, it must stand against illegal immigration and take a much more restrictive approach to legal migration as well.

And all of this starts with who they let in to the party.

Conservatives would be wise to vet the people who work within their favorite organizations.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
