Hilario Yanez, a native of Mexico, a man who was brought to the United States at the age of 1, and a DACA recipient, blew a hole on Saturday in the mainstream media’s narrative about President Donald Trump, telling “Fox & Friends” interviewers that Trump had shown “leadership and compassion” towards those affected by the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
What’s more, Yanez had a few choice words for those “compassionate” Democrats the media wants us to believe are out there.
Yanez’s praise for Trump centered around Trump’s work to find a solution to the plethora of issues DACA recipients face in the United States, an issue Democrats claim to champion.
According to Yanez, the Democrats are simply trying to use DACA recipients like himself as “pawns.”
Check out the interview below:
“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. “I’m for that. Also, I believe we need to have border security so this doesn’t happen again.”
For someone in his situation, Yanez has remarkable clarity on the issue. Advocating for change so that people aren’t brought into the United States in the same way as he was cannot be easy, and dealing with future problems now is a great way to ensure that we don’t repeat this bit of history 20 years down the road.
“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 added to his remark.
As for the problem today, he’s as frustrated with Democrats’ abhorrent behavior as he is hopeful for the future and Trump’s plans.
Trump has proposed an immigration framework that would provide an eventual path to citizenship for 1.8 million illegal immigrants, Breitbart reports. That plan also includes tougher border security, something the country desperately needs, the end of the visa lottery system, and an end to chain migration — legal immigration to the United States based on family relations.
The Democrats haven’t been quite so productive. And immigrants like Yanez know it.
“The Democratic leadership, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, really have no clear message,” Yanez said. “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,” he continued.
“We should have never held our American people and our military hostage,” he said.
Democrats didn’t take care of the DACA problem when they controlled Congress.
If we had more immigrants like this, willing to integrate into the society of America, Democrats might just have a meltdown.
