“The decision to legalize DACA would destroy the Trump legacy,” said Dennis Michael Lynch Wednesday during his appearance on “The Truth.” DML emphasized the many downsides of legalizing the millions of illegal alien children in the US, including the new voter pool it creates. “Legalizing DACA would help sway elections in favor of Democrats for decades to come,” he said.
With a new deadline fast approaching, Democrats in Congress are struggling to adopt a unified strategy to protect the herd of so-called ‘Dreamers’ from deportation, according to the Associated Press.
The AP reports: Their inaction has enraged liberal activists across the country, who have shifted their anger in recent days from Republicans who control Congress to Democrats seeking to balance their commitment to a progressive priority with their desire to avoid an explosive government shutdown heading into the 2018 midterm elections.
Liberal groups with millions of members, like MoveOn, are threatening primary election challenges later this year against Democrats who don’t fight hard enough for so-called “Dreamers.” Meanwhile, the liberal organization CREDO is pledging to block campaign cash from uncooperative Democrats, and the pro-immigration United We Dream is preparing a new wave of camera-friendly protests at the Capitol and outside congressional Democrats’ offices nationwide.
“The unity and trust between the grassroots and elected Democrats is rapidly eroding. It could turn ugly if this goes on any further,” said Ben Wikler, MoveOn’s Washington director.
