A "DREAMER" GETS THE BOOT

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY APRIL 21, 2017

         HAVE YOU HEARD OF JUAN MANUEL MONTES? HE’S ONE OF THOSE “DREAMERS” REFERRED TO BY THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, A CHILD OF AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT. MONTES IS AMONG THOSE TARGETED BY THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S GET TOUGH IMMIGRATION POLICY.

         DEMOCRATS ARE USING HIM AS A POSTER BOY, SAYING IT IS UNFAIR AND UN-AMERICAN TO DEPORT HIM BACK TO HIS NATIVE LAND. BUT AS USUAL THERE IS MORE TO THE STORY THAN DEMOCRATS AND THEIR MEDIA ALLIES ARE TELLING.

         MONTES BROKE TERMS OF THE DACA AGREEMENT, LEAVING THE COUNTRY WITHOUT PERMISSION. HE ALSO HAD SEVERAL RUN-INS WITH THE LAW, INCLUDING A SHOPLIFING CONVICTION.

         ONLY THE WASHINGTON TIMES NEWSPAPER CARRIED DETAILS ABOUT MONTES. THE REST OF THE MAJOR MEDIA HAVE IGNORED THESE DETAILS, PREFERRING TO TAKE THE LEFT’S LINE THAT IT IS RACIST AND THE OTHER FAMILIAR BUZZWORDS TO DEPORT SUCH A WONDERFUL YOUNG MAN WHO IS ONLY DREAMING ABOUT A BETTER FUTURE.

         IF YOU BREAK THE LAW YOU SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE BY THE LAW. MONTES BROKE THE LAW AT LEAST TWICE. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS PERFECTLY WITHIN ITS LEGAL RIGHTS TO DEPORT HIM AND POSSIBLY HIS PARENTS, TOO. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
