Lady Liberty has a great solution to the DACA problem — see the cartoon to find out!
Should Trump end DACA and deport the “Dreamers”? Vote HERE
Please remember that pro athletes are generally young and have spent most of their young lives perfecting their athletic ability. As they mature and move from being admired and sometimes worshiped their views tend to change,. Even as adults some of us are yet to grow up and(1) empathize with the plight of the less fortunate (2) learn to respect and appreciate the efforts of those who laid the foundation and built the bridge that has got us to this point in our lives.

Please tell us what the dreamers did wrong?
Should they not have obeyed their parents who brought them here when they were children?
Should they have turned their parents in the the police? (Shades of Hitler youth!)
Should they have not gone to school?
Should they have not kept out of trouble with the law?
Why would you want to boot this group of youth and young adults out of the country, when, by definition, they have demonstrated their commitment to it?
Why send them back to their birth countries, where they may not even know the language?
Senseless racism seems to be the motivation.
And please, don’t give me the “they broke the law” argument. It does not fly because:
1) They did not, their parents may have, but the kids did not.
2) Violating border rules are malum prohibitum – only wrong because “we” say they are, not because they are inherently wrong – malum in se.
3) If you have: never rolled through a stop sign without coming to a complete stop, never exceeded the speed limit, never failed to report cash income on your taxes, never exaggerated the value of a charitable donation on your taxes, never done work on your home without a permit when the law required one, never driven a car when you have had one drink beyond the limit, then you can raise it as a point of argument — otherwise you are a hypocrite.

James while requiring English is reasonable , be careful that you don’t dishonor them when they speak their native language among themselves– as a language is part of who are .

We can’t keep letting in hordes of foreigners….illegal OR legal. We need to start allowing in only what we do not produce with the birthrate. We will become a 3rd world country worse than India so over-crowded, with people sleeping by the side of the road or in tents. The Muslims we let in have an average of 8 children per family. Our culture is dying. Our elected representatives are regulating carbon emissions at the same time as letting in millions of people. This can’t go on. They are destroying the U.S.A.

I also agree with you Karen. However, all foreigners that are approved to enter this country legally should be required to speak English and English only. Tax payers should not be required to pay for tutoring in foreign languages. Instruction books from manufacturers should be printed in English only. Immigrants that came through Ellis Island were on their own and had to make a living on their own. They were not given free handouts and free medical care as illegals are today. Immigrants that came here then did so because they loved America and wanted to get ahead in life and many became very successful Americans. But, they were loyal to our country and loyal to our flag. Anyone that lives in this country today and being paid millions for throwing a ball and doesn’t respect our flag and national anthem should go to a country where they believe they could be more successful.

I don’t feel that we should open our open arms to foreigners unless they go through the proper channels to become a citizen just like us americans have to go threw different protocols to enter their country we should be no different!!!
“The Iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the U.S. has ever entered into. What is the purpose of a deal that at best only delays Iran’s nuclear capability for a short period of time?”
