Daca, what a joke. How is it the dummocrats fight for illegal aliens to stay, let them break the law without any form of punishment, don’t make them pay taxes, give them free shit and make the American taxpayer pay their way?

Dummocrats hate the American people

So perverted and nonsensical has the notion of "Dreamer" become that Consuegra thinks his mother was one. Hell no, Zaid, YOU are the "dreamer," SHE is the perp who broke our laws to bring you here. Maybe you will get to stay, but she's gotta go!

Fuck yea! Deport everyone! Even the mindless zombies who post on blogs at 4:15AM. Since you are not actively making America great again, you must go as well. Either get to work grandma, or get the fuck out of the country! If you don't, then you need to die because you are taking up space and becoming a drain on OUR countries resources. The fact that you use dummocrats doesn't save you! Go to work, die, or get out!
