The DACA and DREAM Urgency

Regarding the “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) program and the “Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors” (DREAM) Act, the one thing that doesn’t make the news is the only important one. Think about it: the urgency of our representatives –whose main preoccupation should be the problems of their American constituents– is not about the millions of Americans suffering under Obamacare since March of 2010, or about the millions of Americans overwhelmed by high taxes and unemployment since who knows when, or about  the millions of Americans dealing with the destruction recently brought by Harvey and Irma. No, the urgency of both Democrats and Republicans in Congress is about a relatively small group of illegal aliens entitled by the unconstitutional order of a previous president. And those are the guys who supposedly represent us.

It looks like they work for the Mexican Government.


The Unholy Alliance

Unlike the Holy Alliance formed in 19th century Europe to sustain the divine rights of kings, our unholy political alliance doesn’t need any forming or shaping because it is automatic. “Border security,” “broken immigration system,” “D.A.C.A.,” “D.R.E.A.M.,” “H1B,” “let them out of the shadows” are all fig leaves. Democrats and Republicans agree on unlimited legal and illegal immigration. Democrats get a steady stream of new voters, Republicans supply Big Business with a steady stream of cheap workers. The only losers are poor Americans, but they don’t get to decide.

An Easy Prediction

This is as easy as shooting fish in a barrel. For a couple of centuries Paris, London and cities in Germany and Italy have been the centers of world tourism. The rapid change going on in the West tells us that will no longer be the case. I predict that Warsaw, Prague and Budapest will be the new centers of First-world tourism and they fully deserve it. There will be a new gradation in tourism all over Europe, to the benefit of nationalist countries. And yes, it has to do with terrorism, Third-world immigration, and European Union authoritarianism.
