Interesting, so following through on their promises is a bad move politically for Democrats because it's indicative of well.....something....I suppose, in spot's view.

Odd how that's not true of anybody except Democrats...oh well, these are things we already know spot.
Rich people paying rich people to convince middle class people to blame poor people.

Reagan's amnesty was only part of the deal. Democrats agreed to enhance border security, but they chose not to follow through. So it isn't like it is the first time.

Trust me Rethuglicans do similar strategy.
No, being a dreamer doesn't make you dependent on the government. I am for Dreamers being allowed to stay. It's the wall that is the fly in the ointment for democrats/liberals/progressives/socialists. The free flow of super poor future government dependent voters is the sticking point, isn't it? If it wasn't, then there would have been a DACA deal. So instead of keeping families together, democrats/liberals/progressives/socialist voted against the president's offer. The wall wouldn't have gotten anyone deported. The wall doesn't stop legal immigration. The wall slows down a democrats/liberals/progressives/socialist power grab. Acting like it doesn't, while knowing that is what it is about, is nothing more than furthering a narrative that is a lie. There are other democrats out there admitting that is what open borders is about.
There’s a substantial amount of NOT “Super Poor” Dreamers who want to go to college, be productive citizens, and not have to think they’re going to be deported at moments notice.

The whole notion of “open borders” is a farce, but one that has played well with the easily persuaded crowd.

What hurts is that you’re not the only foaming at the mouth, irrational twit who falls for every piece of right wing garbage thrown your way.

Yeah, and if democrats wouldn't have made them a political tool, they wouldn't have to worry about it, but here we are. Democrats knew they wouldn't get a clean DACA bill, but that is what they went for. All or nothing. They got nothing for the DACA kids. Republicans were ready to deal. Democrats f***ed it up.

Hahahahahahahahah Your definition of irrational might be different than mine, but that is all you got.

From what I hear, all your hopes and dreams for a Trump ouster, charged with treason, collusion and obstruction ..all of that is going to collapse. Brennan and Clapper and Comey aren't the heros you want them to be. So all of what you and 98 and PPC have been blathering on and on and on about just isn't going to happen, AND Mueller WON'T BE FIRED. The media has been leading you around by the nose, getting you worked up here and there, and when they are exposed for their misleading, you will still believe. The elite, intellectuals will still believe. With no proof, you will still believe. Intellectuals that cannot see that they are being misled must not be all that intellectual--or it is their agenda to lead their version of 'regular people' astray? But as it stands, you calling anyone else irrational is pretty ironic. But don't worry. Your Antifa heros will soon rise up and hold violent demomstrations against......something. Socialism got rolling in Europe and China behind violence like that.

STILL waiting.
