Well, it looks like the Axios report regarding the offer President Trump was going to make at his presser today was correct. Essentially he offered a three year DACA extension for the $5.7 billion. Whatever happened to negotiating for $25 billion? Or building a wall across the entire border, not just certain areas? Why are we negotiating at all for people who are here illegally anyways? Are we really so stupid to think that rewarding lawlessness will lead to anything other than encouragement of more lawlessness?
President Trump deserves the benefit of the doubt, for now. This all could be part of a bigger play. He may know they won’t take it and he will then have the upper hand over more people in the court of public opinion. God I hope this is the play.
The more one hears though the more one thinks the country is probably already doomed. Yes, stopping illegal immigration is a top priority. But even legal immigration needs a complete makeover. If we continue to allow any and all people in even legally the demographic complexion of the country will change to something unrecognizable. We’re already going that way. I have nothing against Hispanics, or Africans, or anyone else, but I also don’t want to live in a country that’s predominantly Hispanic. I just don’t. But that’s the trajectory we are on. Birth rates and legal and illegal immigration trends point that way. Do you want to live in a new version of Mexico? Is it really so racist to bring this up? To want to live in a country going forward with the same demographic makeup as we had when we were younger? Would we shame an African for saying he didn’t want to live amongst white people if his country were all of a sudden majority white in his homeland?
It’s probably already too late. President Trump, for all the good he has done, hasn’t gone far enough and won’t go far enough. He’s a civic nationalist. And his ideas, while idealistic, are a bit naive. Unless legal immigration is brought to a trickle or halted altogether America as we know it will have exactly zero shot of surviving in its current form. And the result of increased diversity and multiculturalism will inevitably lead to war. It always does.
