Entitled

I am torn between two ideas of the DACA 800,000. First, there is a general justice concept that no one should benefit from illegal behavior. If the parents had robbed a bank and bought the children cars, the cars would be confiscated when the parents were arrested.

Secondly, however, is the fact that many of these are people who have no knowledge of the language or culture of anywhere but this country. They would be strangers in a Strange land — certainly as educated people they would be elites and able to compete.

What bothers me is that instead of throwing themselves on the mercy of the world’s most merciful and generous people, they demand something they otherwise would not be eligible for. I think that is what sticks in my craw
