About 30% of the residents of Alexandria are immigrants to the United States; most documented, some not. Protection for the dreamers is popular here, though there are a vocal anti-immigrant minority. How do you feel about (1) President Trump's phase out of DACA and (2) his voiced support for a legislative replacement offering protection to the Dreamers?

DACA is anti-American. We owe these lawbreakers nothing.

People all over the world dream of giving their children a better life than their own. If dreamers children are to be taken in and protected by US taxpayers, it should be fair to all foreign people's. At some point the numbers of illegal immigrants will need to be seriously restrained.

You should research how many undocumented children crossed over unaccompanied after Obama announced Daca. What kind of parent allows their kids to cross the border alone, especially if the child is a girl? If you still believe ese illegals to be of good character you are insane. Putting kids at risk for exploitation and what not, these are not nice people. Obama started this mess and now Trump has to fix it.

I don't agree with deporting those current Daca recipients but no more. This insanity has gotta stop.

Baby stroller? Who you kidding Poindexter? Anybody can come here illegally and say they were brought here by their parents. Who cares. They are in this country illegally. They insult our country by ignoring our laws and making demands. They have no respect for the country they claim to want to be a part of. Them and their parents should all be given the boot, ASAP. We don't need them and we can't afford the charity they demand. It's not fair to the law abiding people waiting for their chance to come here legally. Dreamers are scammers.

You just can't grasp the legal concept that an infant or child cannot have the necessary mens rea to knowingly commit and thus be convicted of a crime, can you?

It is the Democrats that can't grasp the concept of drug addiction and the toll it is taking on the US. These illegal immigrants are bringing in highly addictive drugs that are hooking young American women who are having children that are horribly affected not only from the drugs but also from the separation of their early lives from a mother in prison. The drug traffickers see illegal activities as a way of life to benefit themselves financially and they will stay in contact with their drop off kids to find a way into the US eventually. The crime is that Democrat's weep tears for separated immigrants while never acknowledging the damage being done by real criminals to US citizens.

If Americans stop buying illegal drugs, the problem is easily and quickly solved.
Blaming innocent immigrant children does nothing at all to address the problem. Nothing at all.

I doubt that people brought here as young children and grew up were drug smugglers. On average, illegal immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than citizens (per DOJ statistics) because they fear that arrest for minor crimes could lead to deportation.

I think everyone can agree that legal status should be granted to individuals with criminal records. How do you feel about legal status to someone with a clean record?

My error -- typo. I think we all agree that individuals with criminal records should not be granted legal status.

I see that we, as a country, have the opportunity to do something decent for people who grew up here. I don't see how anyone can morally oppose this act of kindness.

WTF you talking about, Qdog. That's not the issue here. Go ahead and argue about some unrelated premise if it makes you feel better. You sound as foolish as I would if I argued how the illegal alien invasion is killing the babies of American citizens. Shake yourself dude. You're talking like a buffoon.

Actually the GAO says illegal aliens commit crimes at Three times the rate of citizens.
It is legal immigrants who commit crimes a a lower rate than citizen for fear of deportation.

You don't seem to be able to grasp the issue. This isn't about kids that cross alone, so your post meant absolutely nothing, as it seems your contribution to this nation as a citizen does.

Many illegal aliens are given a smack on the wrist and let go with very small fines for crimes like driving under the influence and without a license and possession of drugs. This is happening all over the US. The Democrats are concealing the fact that they are bad actors and they are trying to put them up on pedestals as thevsalt of the Earth.
