On Tuesday, the Senate held a hearing about what’s to be done with the youngish illegal aliens allowed to remain and mooch off America because of Obama’s unlawful DACA program. The president says he wants an amnesty limited to actual DACA recipients.

But how likely is a limited amnesty when the bi-partisan open-borders caucus gets revved up with the idea of cheap labor and grateful voters?

Not very likely at all. Senator Lindsey Graham piped up right on cue, “What will happen next is I think we’ll set down and deal with the rest of the 11 million” (Lindsey Graham: After DACA, Bigger Amnesty, More Immigration, Breitbart.com, Oct. 5).

Republicans should know better than to trade amnesty now for enforcement later. That deal didn’t work out so well in the 1986 scam and shouldn’t be repeated. In fact, the American people are still owed enforcement from the promises made then, in particular a secure border and invader-free workplaces...

Forgiving the DACA bunch is moving in the wrong direction. The sketchy principle of birth citizenship stemming from a misreading of the 14th Amendment that allows pregnant foreigners to give birth to anchor baby US citizens is bad enough. Worse is the proposed amnesty for DACAs who entered at up to age sixteen. The DACA amnesty makes America look weak, stupid and unserious about defending law and sovereignty, and it reinforces the image of America as flophouse to the world.

A big step toward a DACA-plus amnesty occurred with the Senate Judiciary hearing on Tuesday: Oversight of the Administration’s Decision to End Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

It was disappointing to hear Senator Grassley talk about making a “deal” to protect the DACA illegals, even after listing the many failures of the program in terms of fraud and crime.

Several years ago, he observed an important point about illegal alien amnesty: “You know what I found out? If you reward illegality, you get more of it.”

That psychological fact has not changed since them. Rewarding DACA illegals will tell the world that another amnesty will come eventually as long as the foreigners have a good story that sounds appealing in the media. Now is the time to be tough toward lawbreaking foreigners, not generous. The government’s kindness should be focused on citizens, not invaders whose aim is to steal jobs from Americans.
