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.

Val-e-diction is a web log dedicated to expressing my beliefs and concerns regarding political, economic and social matters in the USA. I was born in Venezuela, a country famous by the proverbial beauty of its women that is a result of its racial and ethnic melting pot. At the present time Venezuela is suffering its gravest political and economic calamity in a century. Simply, socialism doesn’t work. I emigrated legally to the USA in 1979. I had studied here when young and fell in love with the country, a feeling that never faltered until I could make it my and my family’s home. I am proud of being a citizen of the United States of America, the shining city on a hill of Winthrop and Reagan, the beacon of freedom and hope for millions, the astonishing product of the only successful revolution in history. May God keep its institutions, traditions and culture strong forever. My humble contributions will try to push in the same direction.
