I’m just a plainspoken Colorado criminal defense lawyer, but the way I see it…
We love the Dreamers.
We love them so much that we gave a shout-out to all the fine people who marched in Charlottesville to call for their extermination.
We love them so much we pardoned a man who defied a federal court order to stop arresting people for the crime of being brown.
We love them so much because they’re just kids, not like the rest of the Mexican rapists and drug dealers here illegally, not like that Mexican U.S. federal judge here legally only because he was born in Indiana and now was trying to ruin our “University” deal.
We love them so much that today we told them, get out.
On Inauguration Day, the new American President told a United States Senator not to worry about the eight hundred thousand young people protected from deportation by his predecessor’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Donald Trump assured Dick Durbin of Illinois, “We are going to take care of those kids.”
By ending DACA today, he’s kept his promise: that should take care of them, for good. Unless Congress is willing to let Trump hold these children and young adults hostage for his ridiculous border wall, “those kids” are toast.
Donald Trump probably has never read “Mein Kampf,” because it isn’t likely that he’s ever read anything longer than a few paragraphs. But that’s the dream he’s living.
Well, he’s convinced me. We’ve got to get these deportations going, for sure. First to go, please, that dunderhead who lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
