    DACA Recipient Slams Dems Using ‘Dreamers’ As ‘Pawns’

    “Dreamer” Hilario Yanez praised President Donald Trump’s leadership on immigration and slammed Democrats for using DACA recipients as “pawns” during a Saturday interview on Fox News.

    “At the end of the day, here’s a guy who wants to provide a pathway to citizenship for myself and, you know, really make a difference in my life,” Yanez said of President Trump. “I’m for that. Also, I believe we need to have border security so this doesn’t happen again.”

    “And if a wall is necessary to provide another layer for border security to do their job in a safe and responsible manner, then, you know, I think it’s necessary to fund it,” he continued. “The diversity lottery — I think it’s outdated, I think it’s time for people who want to come to the United States to focus on skills so they can contribute to the American economy.”

     Yanez said he is “frustrated” with Democrats because they have shown an unwillingness to work with Trump on his immigration plan and have used people like him as “pawns” to score political points.

    “The Democratic leadership, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, really have no clear message,” he argued. “We have been confused, I think at the end of the day they have been using us as pawns.”

    “We should have never shut down the government over DACA. We should have never held our American people and our military hostage,” he said, noting that Democrats opted not to solve the DACA problem when they had control of Congress.

    Ultimately, Yanez said he is proud to be in the United States and would “do anything to serve this country, to die for this country.”

    “All I need is a chance,” he concluded.

    Y’all heard about the Russian plane crash near Moscow that killed all 71 on board.

    Did you know that included in the fatalities was the CFO of Rosatom and several other execs, which is the company that bought Uranium One. (The company that made $147 million in “donations” to the Clinton Foundation.)
    Just some of the folks who might have testified against Hillary.

    Rogue CIA type hit or just a coincidence?
    Or could it be said Hillary has the luck of the Devil?

      Just like when Sec. of Commerce Ron Brown announced he was leaving Bill Clinton’s administration and would write a book. I said, “He just signed his death warrant.”
      A week later his plane crashed into a mountain. Before the investigation the guy running the airport was suicided.

    An observation, which surprised me this morning.
    Listen first to Bix Weir:
    and then contemplate the fact that a whole bunch of gold was sold in Shanghai this morning.
    I don’t have volume numbers yet, but early this mrning for a few hours the price of gold dropped in Shanghai to be several dollars less than the price in London (And it had been over $10 more than the price in London).
    The question is why was gold dumped at this low price.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on President Donald Trump’s infrastructure proposal (all times local):

    12:01 p.m.

    President Donald Trump’s infrastructure plan calls for possibly selling two of the three major airports serving the nation’s capital.

    The president is calling for divesting federal assets when agencies can show the sale would “optimize taxpayer value.”

    The proposal lists Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and Dulles International Airport as examples of assets that could be sold.

    Other such examples of federal assets to be divested include transmission lines operated by the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Bonneville Power Administration. Similar plans in the past have been met with stiff, bipartisan opposition.

    Trump is also citing two major roadways in the Washington D.C. region that could be sold: the George Washington Memorial and Baltimore-Washington parkways.


    11:30 a.m.

    President Donald Trump is urging Congress to pass what he’s calling the “biggest and boldest” infrastructure plan.

    Trump is making his case as he meets with a group of local and state officials, including governors, state legislators, mayors and country commissioners.

    Trump says local leaders understand the challenges of funding infrastructure and says his is a “common sense and bipartisan plan” that Congress should support.

    He also says Washington should be a partner to local governments and no longer “a roadblock to progress.”

    Trump’s plan envisions using $200 billion in federal money to leverage local and state tax dollars to fix roads, highways, ports and airports.

    The plan would fulfill a key campaign goal but rely heavily on state and local government budgets.


    10:10 a.m.

    President Donald Trump is meeting with a group of governors, mayors and local leaders at the White House to build support for his infrastructure proposal.

    The White House says the meeting will include governors from eight states: Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Maine, New Mexico, Virginia, Nebraska and Wisconsin.

    A number of mayors will be attending from cities like Las Vegas, Fort Worth, Texas, Charlotte, North Carolina and Wichita, Kansas. The gathering will also include state legislators and county commissioners.

    The White House is releasing a 55-page “legislative outline” on the proposal, which envisions spurring $1.5 trillion in spending over a decade to rebuild roads, highways and airports.

    The proposal would rely heavily on state and local government for much of the funding.


    8:05 a.m.

    President Donald Trump is predicting a “big week” for the roll out of his administration’s infrastructure plan.

    The president tweeted Monday that after “so stupidly spending $7 trillion in the Middle East, it is now time to start investing in OUR Country!”

    The White House is unveiling its goal of spurring $1.5 trillion in funding over 10 years to rebuild roads, highways, ports and airports. The plan centers on using $200 billion in federal money to leverage local and state dollars for the projects.

    Trump is meeting with state and local leaders at the White House on Monday to discuss the plan.


    1 a.m.

    President Donald Trump is unveiling his long-awaited infrastructure plan, a $1.5 trillion proposal that fulfills a number of his campaign goals. But it relies heavily on state and local governments to produce much of the funding.

    The administration’s plan is centered on using $200 billion in federal money to leverage local and state tax dollars to fix America’s infrastructure, such as roads, highways, ports and airports.

    Trump has repeatedly blamed the “crumbling” state of the nation’s roads and highways for preventing the American economy from reaching its full potential. Many in Washington believe that Trump should have begun his term a year ago with an infrastructure push, one that could have garnered bipartisan support or, at minimum, placed Democrats in a bind for opposing a popular political measure.

    On Facebook
    Associated Press – 18 minutes ago
    MEXICO CITY (AP) — Prosecutors in the northern Mexico border state of Sonora say they have captured nine people for allegedly offering drugs to minors via Facebook and messaging apps.

    The state detectives’ agency says eight men aged 20 to 23 were arrested, as well as a 14-year-old.

    The agency said Sunday the suspects had been caught in raids in Hermosillo, the state capital.

    It said the gang sold marijuana and meth to youths, with messages advertising certain drugs and prices. Potential buyers were asked to send messages back, apparently to set up deals and meeting places.

    On Monday, federal authorities announced that Jose Maria Guizar Valencia, the alleged leader of the Zetas drug cartel arrested last week, had been served with an extradition request on U.S. conspiracy.

    We gave up on enforcement after Reagan granted amnesty because the agriculture industry said it needed workers. What is needed more than a wall are laws against employers, laws that make employers liable for the hiring of illegal aliens, that make hiring of illegals a crime and dedicated enforcement. If no jobs for illegals, then they won’t come. If they do come, the more easily they will be caught.

    What do you think the americans keep using when they hit Pakistan?

    As for the possibility of terror within the U.S. …well….DUH!!!

    The fact that it is so vulnerable and nothing happens is kinda saying, there are no terrorists in the U.S.
    This was discussed years ago including all the options of really messing up the states.

    The vid that show hidden flasks on a person flying all over the U.S. and not once was the flask spotted.

    Russia can deal with swarms of drones, recall the cruise missile attacks on the syrian airbase.
    They have AI subs already….its the way of the future for war fare.

    I bet the world cant wait for our first AI invasion…whose gonna get the honor?

    Iran developing this tech in no way makes them warlike.

In spite of claiming to be fighting for these DACA beneficiaries, that really is not the case. One Dreamer, Hilario Yanez a Mexican native who was brought to America when he was one year ancient really said that he appreciates President Trump taking a position on the DACA issue, as contradicted to Democrats who keep pushing it to the back burner. “Well let me first start by thanking President Trump for his leadership, his compassion, and also the courage to take on this [immigration] issue.
