In their most recent fundraising letter, the Democrat National Committee sent the following note from their chairman, Tom Perez.
My parents were born in the Dominican Republic and met in the United States. My dad earned his citizenship through military service and became a doctor in Atlanta before moving to Buffalo. My mom came here with her family to escape the iron fist of a brutal dictator and pursue a better life in America.
They fell in love, got married, had my four older siblings and me, and worked their tails off to give us a shot at the American dream.
There are nearly 800,000 young people who were brought to this country so they could have the same chance at success that my parents wanted for my siblings and me. Today, Donald Trump took that dream away from them. As Democrats, we must rise and organize.
DREAMers have been raised and educated alongside our children. They contribute to our communities and our economy. They pledge allegiance to our flag and believe in our values — and America is the only country they call home.
Donald Trump’s heartless decision to rescind DACA will force these young people into the shadows. It is a moral disgrace.
We need to fix our immigration system, but we can do it without uprooting lives or shattering families. Democrats will fight to keep our country off this inhumane path that violates our most important founding principles. And I know we can win — with your help.
Frustrated with the emotion-filled but sadly fact-less plea to support law-breakers. I penned the following response, letting the DNC and Perez know that I would not be supporting their efforts.
I must say you are both consistent and creative, so where is the violin sound track that should be under this piece? When are you folks going to answer the question, “Are we going to have a country of laws or are we not?” I realize you would love to load us up with foreign nationals beholden to you for the welfare, food stamps and free high quality education for all their kids. When will the African-Americans catch on you have destroyed them with millions of low wage Latino workers? You have them so angry they will not “go white” and gain access to America unless they are very good at basketball, football, boxing or rap music where they get seriously injured and have short lives. Why do I think of you as evil?
My mother came here from Mexico in 1918 at the time of their revolution legally as her father was an American civil engineer hired by the losing Diaz government. He was kicked out by Emiliano Zapata before Marlon Brando made him famous. As a Spanish speaker I am sure you will know what I mean when I say, “DACA is Caca.”
