In early September, the Trump administration announced it would end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in six months.
The move didn’t go over very well. The entire left obviously hated it, and even plenty of high-profile Republicans were against it.
I had a problem with it too… that Trump didn’t do it sooner! And the reason is simple.
If we let these “Dreamer” kids stay in our country, one of them could take my job of being a huge asshole.
Look at the facts. There are around 800,000 people protected under DACA right now, and that’s a whole lot of jobs they’re going to be stealing away from born and bred citizens like myself. What’s to say there’s not at least one asshole in that bunch who will supplant me and take away the skill I’ve been cultivating nearly my entire adult life?
Does that seem fair?
Look, you can call me a racist. You can call me cold-hearted.You can call me whatever you want; I don’t really care. What I care about is my job of being a close-minded, insufferable asshole, whose racism trumps my “Christianity” and existence of statistics that show the economic benefits of DACA.
We are a nation of laws, and we can’t just let a million government freeloaders in here who are stealing jobs from citizens like you and me. And I know those two ideas don’t necessarily jibe on paper, but believe me, those kids manage to accomplish it.
Before we know it, those kids will be accomplishing the theft of my job as an asshole too.
So stay strong, fellow assholes. We’re not going to sit back and let anyone replace us.
