The Legal American Dream: Get to Work Congress

Share this article

The U.S. Congress isn’t getting much done these days. They are too busy looking at their dang iPhones and tweeting out national policy to get much of anything done for real American citizens.

Sure-as-shootin’ our President Donald Trump does a lot tweeting himself, but that’s different. He actually gets things done while Congress does not and they won’t because of the looming Nov. 3, 2020 national election. There are real ‘tweet wars of words’ going on between Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and wacky U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Those two are getting a lot of time on mainstream media as Pelosi attempts to reign in these rogue members of congress including those three radical Muslims that got elected in 2018. Ocasio-Cortez and the extremist Muslims are making spectacles of themselves as they bash American traditions and President Trump daily. It’s clear they hate America, its capitalism and the opportunity presented by the American dream for citizens.

Pelosi wants to bring the Democratic Party more to the center to accommodate former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign — believing he’s the one to beat President Trump — but far-left wingers U.S. senators Kamala Harris (D-CA) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) appear to be closing in on Biden for next year’s Democratic presidential nomination, while extreme Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) slides in the polls. Up and down they go and where it all ends is anyone’s guess.

The Washington Democrats got a whippin as the DOW Jones stock market went past 27,000 for the first time in history. They hate it when President Trump gets credit for today’s robust economy, but give credit where credit is due. The Democrats go on and on with their dribble about former President Obama getting credit for today’s U.S. economy. Nobody with a lick of sense believes that, especially American voters. They see the handwriting on the wall and it clearly reads, “Trump wins 2020.”

The current ‘crisis situation’ at the southern border with Mexico is backfiring on the Washington Democrats as they continue to fail to do anything to help because this border problem is a contrived event orchestrated behind the scenes by forces that have yet to be truly revealed. But here again it’s the Democrats taking the heat, not President Trump or the Republicans.

It’s clear the Democrats want as many foreign nationals from Central America to enter the USA as possible before the exodus ends thus creating a whole new class of future voters dependent on government handouts. The Democrats are pushing for amnesty for all illegal immigrants – all of them. If you’re in the USA — no matter how you got there — you are a citizen eligible to vote. As irrational as that is – it’s their goal.

All those millions of naturalized U.S. citizens – from around the world — that came into the USA legally and went through the citizenship process are highly upset over this hypocrisy by wanting to allow these illegals to jump to the front of the line. These U.S. citizens value their citizenship and they will vote against the Democrats over this mockery.

To counter the sheer numbers of illegals attempting to enter the USA at the southern border, President Trump has announced additional raids to round up illegal immigrants across the country. These roundups are to be conducted by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Immigration Customs Enforcement agency (ICE).

According to a story by published on, “A spokesman for ICE would not reveal details of the planned raids but said that enforcement actions are aimed at people who are a threat to ‘national security, public safety and border security.’ The spokesman said ‘90 percent of aliens arrested by ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations component in [fiscal year] 2018 had either a criminal conviction(s), pending criminal charge(s), were an ICE fugitive, or illegally reentered the country after previously being removed.’ “

At stake next year is the American dream. Will it live with Trump or die with the Democrats?
