We are now officially at the same level as the Roman Empire in its death spiral – hiring and protecting barbarian soldiers at the expense of the native population.
The difference lies in the fact that in Rome’s case, the barbarians were mainly of White Nordic stock that partially reversed the results of centuries of multicultural decadence.
Not so much here in America, though…
The approximately 800 service members whose military service was put in limbo by President Donald Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program will not be deported, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Thursday.
Congress has been at an impasse over DACA, which provides a protected status for some younger undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children.
Mattis told reporters Thursday that he has finalized an agreement with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to put the military’s ”Dreamers” in a protected status.
“Anyone who is in the delayed enlistment program, in other words they are already signed up and they are waiting to go into boot camp, anyone on active duty and anyone in the active reserves and anyone with an honorable discharge is, right now, except for two possible exceptions, they will not be subject to any kind of deportation.”
The exceptions are convictions for severe felonies like rape and murder, and those who are already judicially-ordered to be deported (usually after convictions for severe felonies).
“They’re protected,” Mattis said.
He also said he thinks the program will live on.
“I think that it is not coming to an end right now either,” Mattis said. “You can sign up right now, as I understand.”
Many of us voted for Trump with dreams of a heavily-armed Deportation Force flashing through our minds.
The problem lies in the fact that for all intents and purposes, the real #MAGA is going to involve the Dreamer Beaners – millions of them, their children, and a nice chain of migrants that won’t stop until at least 2027.
