Conservatives have always been saying that the only reason Democrats supported the DACA legislation is so they can garner votes from the illegal immigrants and their families, but now the DACA recipients are starting to realize just how much the Dems are using them, reports Town Hall.
Recently a group of DACA recipients protested outside the Democratic National Committee headquarters in Washington, D.C. on Monday to let Democrats know that they’re no longer going to be affiliated with their party unless they do something for them now.
“It’s not fair that every two years I have to reapply to this program [DACA] and live with anxiety for two to three months wondering if I’m going to be able to continue building my life in this country, wondering if I’m going to continue helping my parents,” one girl cried into the megaphone. “I don’t know if I’m going to go visit my parents one day and they won’t be there because they left for deportation.”
She then recounts her childhood of growing up being illegal:
“When I was growing up I had to tell my little brother, on the way home from school, that it’d be okay because some days he would start crying, thinking that mom and dad wouldn’t be home when we got there.”
Another immigrant took the megaphone and said, “they’ve ignored us for too long. I’m no longer going to be a Democrat. I’m no longer going to help them exploit my people. So, to the Democrats: do your job. And to my friends and family: I’m sorry.”
Finally, liberals and illegal immigrants are starting to realize how they have been used and played by the Democratic party for years now, and especially by the Obama administration. Obama pushed the program through with his executive order in order to help Hillary Clinton garner the number of votes she needed for the 2016 election. That obviously didn’t work out for her, but now these children of illegal immigrants are starting to realize how long they have been lied to.
