Donald Trump Celebrates Democrat Cave: No DACA Deal Unless ‘Good For Our Country’

By Charlie Spiering at Breitbart

Is DACA “good for our country”? Hardly! It’s certainly not “good” for Americans! Columns at Breitbart by experts like Kris Kobach and Rosemary Jenks and reports at Breitbart have told us the stats.

Kobach wrote the following at Breitbart yesterday,

“Think about that for a moment. More than 300 million American citizens benefit from the continuing operation of the federal government – most importantly through the funding of our armed forces. But virtually no American citizens benefit from granting legal status and work authorization to nearly a million illegal aliens. That allows the DACA aliens to compete against United States citizens in the same age group who are having great difficulty finding good, well-paid jobs.

As I have written previously, the DACA aliens are not kids; they are mostly young adults in their 20s and 30s competing for jobs against young Americans. Despite the growing economy, young American adults are struggling in the workforce, with an unemployment rate of nine percent. And young Americans without a college degree (66 percent of them) are suffering an underemployment rate (unemployed or seeking full time work) that stands at a whopping 34 percent.”

John Binder reported last month at Breitbart:

Giving amnesty to millions of illegal aliens who are covered and eligible for the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program would cost American taxpayers a total of $26 billion, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

The DREAM Act, which is the most expansive amnesty being considered in Congress, would give potentially 3.5 million illegal aliens who are shielded from deportation by DACA and those eligible for DACA a pathway to U.S. citizenship.

Such a plan, the CBO reports, would come with a costly price tag to American taxpayers:

In total, CBO and JCT estimate that changes in direct spending and revenues from enacting S. 1615 would increase budget deficits by $25.9 billion over the 2018-2027 period, boosting on-budget deficits by $30.6 billion and decreasing off-budget deficits by $4.7 billion over that period. Pay-as-you-go procedures apply because enacting the bill would affect direct spending and revenues. [Emphasis added]
