We have reached a new level of entitlement with these ‘dreamers’.
The irony in this story is so thick you could cut it with a knife. In a CNN report, two DACA recipients threaten to leave the United States if Congress doesn’t support Obama’s fatally flawed Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Really?!
This is the type of entitlement liberals have bestowed upon people who are here illegally and all in the efforts to capture votes. These are people who have had years to become legal citizens and chosen not to for their own reasons. Even within this story, rather than apply for citizenship, one of the women threatening to leave, just applied for a two-year renewal? Way to work the system.

“Alex and I are both over this [DACA situation],” said Daniela, who is 24 years old. “If DACA ends, I will leave with Alex. I will close my business, leave work and school.”
The Velez sisters are two of nearly 689,000 young adults who are currently protected from deportation under DACA. The Obama-era program allowed young Dreamers who were brought to the United States as children to come out from the shadows and enroll in college, obtain driver’s licenses and legally secure jobs.
Should Alex, who is 19, find herself unprotected, she said she is clear on what her plan will be. “I will leave. I will leave America as soon as possible,” she said. “I want to be able to leave on my terms. I’m not going to be waiting for anyone to come for me.”
“In all honesty, it is scary to think about leaving,” she said. “My mom cried for the first time since we talked about our situation. She’s a positive person and is hoping that something good will happen for us.”
