Rep. Steve King (R-IA) took to Twitter to question why Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) is pushing for DACA amnesty. The Tweet mentions President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to end DACA, and asks for his supporters to call Congress to state their opposition to DACA amnesty.
Why is @SpeakerRyan pushing a DACA amnesty agenda that Delivers Amnesty to Criminal Aliens??? @RealDonaldTrump won by promising to end DACA, not by promising to amnesty criminals! Call Congress and tell them you oppose Amnesty! 202-224-3121. https://t.co/eRW30a5QdB

The support from President Donald Trump for extending DACA, which allows children of illegal aliens to gain U.S. citizenship, upset many of his most ardent supporters who hoped that Trump would phase out the program as President. But despite the President’s statement of support for extending DACA, he has always been clear that he will only do that if the bill extending DACA also includes stronger border security laws, and funding for a border wall.

But while President Trump has been clear on this, House Speaker Paul Ryan has chosen to defy the request of President Trump. Instead of having one bill, that would force those who support DACA to support other immigration proposals, Speaker Ryan gave them a choice by separating both issues into two bills.
While both bills are not as strong as many conservatives would like, the “compromise bill” is especially weak, allowing DACA recipients to apply for green cards, which opens up a gateway to full citizenship. Allowing citizenship for DACA recipients is a dangerous precedent to set considering how badly DACA was implemented during the Obama Administration.
Despite the left liking to claim that the DACA recipients are just young “dreamers” who are looking to make a better life, the data shows that there are a good number of violent offenders in that group. According to data from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, ten people who had been arrested on murder charges were allowed to remain and work in the United States because of DACA, thirty-one DACA recipients had rape charges on record, 500 had been accused of sex crimes, and 2,000 had been arrested for drunk driving.
Those are the bad homres President Donald Trump was talking about on the campaign trail, and these are the exact people Speaker Paul Ryan is looking to protect with his DACA amnesty bill, unless anti-illegal immigration heroes like Rep. Steve King stand in his way.
SUV Carrying 27 People Crashes with Semi Truck Near Mexican Border, At Least 15 Killed
A tragedy that could’ve been avoided.
A Tuesday morning crash involving an SUV and a semi truck has killed at least 15 people.
The crash occurred near Holtville, California, a town close to both the Arizona border and the US-Mexico border. The SUV, according to the New York Times, pulled into the path of the semi at an intersection.
14 of the victims were pronounced dead at the scene, while another died at the hospital. At least six other victims are currently receiving treatment at the hospital as well.
It is believed that 27 passengers were packed inside the SUV, which had a maximum legal capacity of seven to eight people. Because of this and the crash’s proximity to the US-Mexico border, it is probable that the passengers were illegal immigrants being smuggled into the United States.
The California Highway Patrol has not officially confirmed their immigration status because it is still under investigation, but Dr. Adolphe Edward of the El Centro Regional Medical Center said he believes the victims to be illegal aliens.
Big League Politics is closely following the illegal immigration crisis that’s been brewing since Joe Biden’s assumption of the White House. We recently reported on how the Border Patrol expects 13,000 illegal alien minors to arrive at the US-Mexico border in just the month of May. We also reported on Biden’s DHS secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claiming that he didn’t think the situation at the border constitutes a crisis:
Another reporter asked Mayorkas if he thought there was a crisis at the border, to which he replied: “I think that the answer is no. I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it.” Despite the reporter’s pushback on his claim, Mayorkas reiterated that his team was working “around the clock” to address the issues confronting the DHS and that the level of illegal immigrants coming across the border constitutes a challenge, not a crisis.
Illegal immigration is harmful to both the nation and the migrants. Tuesday’s accident near the border was a tragedy that could’ve been avoided.
