Another Good reason to dump DACA

Federal records reveal that one-third of MS-13 gang members arrested by law enforcement in recent weeks could have been classified as Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) when they entered the U.S. illegally during the Obama administration. During FY 2017, more than 40,000 UACs were resettled across the country.

Scott-

"Another Good reason to dump DACA "

Trump and haters don't need good reasons to dump DACA, just their normal bigotry and racism will do quite nicely

It's all in the eye of the beholder. I can cite factual basis for my views. You attempt to obfuscate the effects of this flawed tax bill by pointing the few nuggets of reform amidst the huge give-away to the rich, and the busting of the deficit.

your facts are filtered by those who think they understand tax policy, when in fact they are simply partisan writers without the experience or knowledge of our overly complex tax code.

It's way past time for a reset two previous Presidents failed to get to this point, even though they both stated it was needed. In particular Prez O said many times the corporate was holding back America in the global market.

Next up is immigration, another Bush/Obama failure

You are entitled to your unsubstantiated opinion. Both the economy and corporations and the rich seem to be doing extremely well. Why do they need a deficit busting stimulus? The people who need help are the middle class and the poor, and this flawed tax bill will hurt both. It is ironic that trump is screwing his base and they are dumb enough to cheer him on as he does it.

Thank you. But "seem to be doing extremely well", and reality are far different. In the headlines are GOOGL, AMZN,FB, and other superstars.

The majority of the middle class gets paid by small business. It's all about jobs and income.

My opinion is we have had a lost economy for the past 10 years, not only due to Federal policies, but more importantly on the State level.

Fiscally, NJ/NY/CT are a total mess. RI.IL are not far behind.

The middle class has suffered, low income has suffered even more mainly to loss of population in many Northern cities that have been mismanaged for years.

Providence has a debt that equals $34k for every citizen, Charlotte has a surplus that equals $3k per citizen.

Education suffers the most, it's the easiest place to cut, see the case of CT. Wealthy suburbs provide great education, cities such as Hartford, Bridgeport, New Haven, not so much

Reforming the tax code is a good place to start. Just about every person in Congress has stated that.

Today we see the partisan divide in all it's glory. How we got here is irrelevant.

Right, everyone is for reforming and simplifying the tax code, providing a small tax cut to the middle class, and working on spending and raising taxes in some areas to eliminate the deficit. This flawed bill doesn't do that. It blows a $trillion plus hole in the deficit, and is a big give-a-way to the rich.

At a 1.9% growth I would have to agree. Going forward I tend to believe 3 to 4% is the norm, historically that is true.

A true Keynesian would opt for Government stimulus. That failed.

Thomas, nobody is projecting that this tax bill is going to pay for itself. Trickle down has NEVER worked. Yes, cutting taxes results in increased revenues to the government, but NEVER enough to cover the deficits created. Repubs constantly talk about the effect of Reagan's and Kennedy's tax cuts on revenues and ignore that they both blew a hole in the deficit.

What the US needs is a restructuring to provide the blue collar jobs that have been lost. How do we do that? We are not going to bring back manufacturing or coal mining so we need to look for ways to educate the workforce for the jobs that are going begging, and encourage them to move where the jobs are.

Seems your last paragraph begs the question. What and when are you referring to when you state the Keynesian approach has failed? What is your basis of belief and, where are your evidence that support your belief?

There's timely empirical fact based evidence that "Trickle down" doesn't work and, there is no reason to believe it will work this time. Trickle down is, IMO, based on faulty reasoning and flawed premises. There's no history / evidence of Tickle Down ever achieving it's publicly stated goals and objectives.

Bush Sr. was prescient when he called trickle down "voodoo economics".

2009 Stimulus and the last 50 years of Government deficit spending?

The last time the Government actually cut the Federal Budget, 1954, the economy took off like a spaceship,

John Maynard Keynes still has advocates today, despite the fact that he lived in a time when the government revenue was in the form of tariffs. Income tax on individuals, and then later Corporations was just getting started.

30% of what?

Lame retort. Extremely lame.

you post no citations to support your opinions- you post no facts just spew hatred for those who challenge your delusions and Trump-like expectations.

once this Russian influence in elections is detailed, you will silently hide under a rock till your party wins majority again, wonder how long it will take to repair the damage of letting "Trump be Trump"?

just wondering scott -

Perhaps you could explain why Republicans pass such failures of legislation during the 'wee hours of the night/morning' and then take holidays and vacations for so much of the year to avoid dealing with the needs of the nation. They have jobs and apparently do their work when Americans are asleep and can't control their madness.

Noel, Can’t explain why the Republicans and Democratic work that way. President Trump wants his original agenda that got him elected passed; however, there are the Rinos’ that exist in the party like McConnell, McCain, Flake,..etc and the haters in the democratic party that force wee hour effort and sometime bad decisions to get anything passed, like obamacare, like bad DACA support to get Flake involved ., It’s sad that all Americans can’t work to support our our constitution and future in a safe way, murders Kate Steinle and a jury in San Francisco finds him not guilty; Steinle’s last words, after she was shot were, "Help Me Dad" should have never happened.

The news today supports the fact that MS13 bad guys are infused into DACA.

There may very well be good people in DACA, but out of 800000 that are in this country how many killers are hiding out. Don't need another Kate crying "daddy help me" or Circle K shooting.

President Trump needs to Build the Wall, asap, to put the brakes on this type of destruction and sneaknes within America.

St. Louis has over 190 shootings this year with a month to go. Don't think MS 13 bad guys had any part in those shootings, just American borne citizens.

How many of the so Dreamers are sleepers, one, two, but more than you can count.
Will we take another case, a dreamer case and find out that the dreamer:
1) Enter country illegally 2) Fire a stolen Sig handgun into a group of people(that's man slaughter) 3) Sever the aorta of a beautiful young woman that killed her 4) Throw gun in SF Bay 5) Get caught on video fleeing scene 6) Watching F jury acquit the dreamer illegal of the serious charges in a mockery of justice. Sounds like it's time for the father to hire a sharp shooter.

Scott, you are way off in lala land. Dreamers we're brought here by their parents and have to register and be vetted to be in the program. They have to meet education and work requirements.
Gang members are criminals who would be revealed as be such if they attempted to get in the program.
You could make a much more plausible story about trump being a Manchurian candidate.

What about the 18 to 34 year old illegals that Obama allowed to cross into America and declared them as dreamers so they could not easily be deported. Put them into schools..etc. Now-we stuck with what 80,000 or is it 800,000 dreamers. The story heard from the border guys is if they caught an illegal and the person he/she claimed to be a "dreamer" it was hands off.

Scott, the FACTS are that the immigrant population has a LOWER crime rate than the US general population. The concept behind Sanctuary Cities is that we need immigrant populations cooperating and working with law enforcement, not hiding.
Anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim rhetoric hurts the US. It alienates immigrant and Muslim citizens and it alienates our foreign allies. PM May's reaction to trump's retweeting of those false and hate-filled videos is just one example.

To be eligible for Obama Administration’s “deferred action” initiative for unauthorized youth brought to this country as children you must have entered the United States before age 16; have lived continuously in the country for at least five years; have not been convicted of a felony, a “significant” misdemeanor, or three other misdemeanors; and are currently in school, graduated from high school, earned a GED, or served in the military. Within this population of potential beneficiaries, however, are three distinct groups: those who are between the ages of 15 and 30 who are either in high school or already have high school diplomas. This group is immediately eligible for deferred action.
Those between the ages of 5 and 14 who will be eligible at some point in the future if the deferred action initiative remains in place.
Those between the ages of 15 and 30 who are not in high school and don’t have high school diplomas. Members of this group might be eligible for deferred action if they get a GED.

Go back and read my post. I was posting to Scott who has been posting nonsense about DACA.
Whether the GOP kills DACA is an open question and is tied more to a funding bill to keep the government open then to any logical decision regarding DACA. The fact that a super majority of Americans support a path to citizenship for the Dreamers doesn't seem to matter. Just as a majority of Americans oppose the GOP tax reform bill.
After all, the GOP is now the party of trump and moore. You cannot get lower than that.

Douglas robb can it be proven that the illegal person was here before 16 in all cases, or does the the illegals word good enough.

FYI
Any illegal the spend 4 year in our military service and exits in good standing, gets a kitchen pass in my book.

The Obama administration allowed many illegals to declare Dreamer status that were really phonies, what a scam on the leagal immigration.

Did you read the standards? Did you understand the standards? Obviously not.
Unfortunately, trump is deporting non-citizen vets who served. Basically, any undocumented immigrant they can snare will be deported.
I agree that honorable military service should be a path to citizenships, but Dreamers, even if they meet the standards are not guaranteed anything even though they have exposed themselves by registering for the program. Very unfair.
