Dreamer to DEMS: ‘Stop using us a PAWNS’ as he praises TRUMP’s immigration leadership

(National SentinelIdentity 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“The diversity lottery — I think it’s outdated, I think it’s time for people who want to come to the United States to focus on skills so they can contribute to the American economy,” Yanez said.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order was set to be challenged by about a dozen states as an unconstitutional change to immigration law before Trump rescinded it in September.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.

More black women leaving the Democratic Party in the Age of Trump

(National SentinelIdentity Politics: Black women, long one of the Democrats’ most reliable demographics, are increasingly leaving the party, according to recent surveys.

As reported by Newsmax, the 3rd annual Power of the Sister Vote conducted by Essence and The Black Women’s Roundtable found an 11-percent drop in black female voters (from 85 to 74 percent over one year), who believe the Democratic party best represents their interests.

In addition, more than one-in-five black women say that neither major political party represents their interests.

There are additional indicators that Democrats are losing support among blacks.

Earlier this year, a survey by the Congressional Black Caucus found that nearly two-thirds of blacks, or 63 percent, said the Democratic Party takes them for granted.

“That sentiment is strongest among black women ages 50-plus, who have watched decades of black communities and important issues go ignored,” Newsmax reported.

In May, more than two dozen black female activists and elected leaders wrote a letter to Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez stating that the party ignores black issues and voters at its peril.

“The Democratic Party has a real problem…The Party’s foundation has a growing crack and if it is not addressed quickly, the Party will fall even further behind and ultimately fail in its quest to strengthen its political prospects,” they said.

What’s more, black women are fully engaged in politics. The Sister Vote survey found that 98 percent of them are registered to vote, and 61 percent said they are active in their communities.

In 2008 and 2012, black women voted in higher percentages than any other demographic.

While blacks — males and females – still mostly support the Democratic Party, as more of them leave it represents an opportunity for conservatives and independents to win their support by addressing their issues and concerns, Newsmax reported.
