When he talked about illegal aliens, Donald Trump said that Mexico “wasn’t sending their best people” to America and got into the usual trouble for that so-called insult.
But it looks like he was onto something, maybe more than even he realized:
Some of these illegals, according to one expert, were in fact pretty “stupid,” at least in one respect.
And the irony deepens: Millions of illegals looked upon President Obama as a hero and savior, but it appears that two of Obama’s well-intentioned amnesty programs will actually make it easier for the Trump administration to deport those exact people.
Paul Bedard reports at the Washington Examiner:
Some 1.4 million illegals who followed President Obama’s request to sign up for two controversial amnesty programs could be among the first to face deportation under the new administration.
The reason: In exchange for getting into the two programs, they handed over their identities, home addresses and admitted to being in the United States illegally, making them the easiest to find and legally deport.
“I was surprised anyone would be stupid enough to sign up for DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans). Yet apparently hundreds of thousands of people did so anyway,” said John Miano of the Center for Immigration Studies.
Bedard says he’s already “received reports” that illegals are self-deporting now that the atmosphere in the country has changed from welcoming or at the very least indifferent, to downright hostile.
Conservatives, including the much-put-upon Mitt Romney, were mocked for years for saying that many illegals would in fact leave the U.S. under such circumstances.
Of course, those doing the mocking were the same liberal pundits and policy wonks who got everything wrong about this year’s election.
