Democratic pawns... As I read about how the Democrats have rejected the offer by President Trump to give 1.8 million illegal aliens a path to citizenship, I was reminded of the offer that Israel's Prime Minister Ehud Barack made to Yasser Arafat in July 2000 at Camp David. Arafat also had no intention of doing the right thing for the Palestinians. He was cut from the same cloth as all self-serving, power-hungry politicians: Stir people up, demonize your opposition, promise the world, and deliver nothing to the people but continued dependence.

Once again, we see how disingenuous the liberal Democrats are. Their motives are so very apparent. They want only what's best for themselves. And what's best for themselves is a steady stream of dependent, low-information voters with whom they can stir up dissension.

The Democrats don't want the DACA problem solved. If they they solve it by agreeing to President Trump's generous offer, the DACA issue would go away, and they would lose their cause to campaign on. They have no intention to agree on immigration reform. Sad.
