(National Sentinel) Identity Politics: “Dreamer” Hilario Yanez complimented President Donald J. Trump for his leadership during an interview on Fox News Saturday while chastising the Democratic Party for using him and others like him as political “pawns.”
“At the end of the day, here’s a guy who wants to provide a pathway to citizenship for myself and, you know, really make a difference in my life,” Yanez said of the president.
“I’m for that. Also, I believe we need to have border security so this doesn’t happen again,” he added.
“And if a wall is necessary to provide another layer for border security to do their job in a safe and responsible manner, then, you know, I think it’s necessary to fund it,” he continued.
“The diversity lottery — I think it’s outdated, I think it’s time for people who want to come to the United States to focus on skills so they can contribute to the American economy,” Yanez said.
He also blasted Democrats, saying he is “frustrated” by their unwillingness to work with the president on his immigration reform plans while using people like him as political “pawns.”
“The Democratic leadership, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, really have no clear message,” he argued. “We have been confused, I think at the end of the day they have been using us as pawns.”
“We should have never shut down the government over DACA. We should have never held our American people and our military hostage,” he said, noting that Democrats opted not to solve the DACA problem when they had control of Congress.
DACA refers to Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals, a program implemented via executive order by President Obama in 2012. The order was set to be challenged by about a dozen states as an unconstitutional change to immigration law before Trump rescinded it in September.
He gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix for the program. That deadline is March 5.
Yanez said he is proud to be in the United States and would “do anything to serve this country, to die for this country.”
“All I need is a chance,” he concluded.
