Conservative lawmakers led by Thom Tillis are crafting a bill they call the conservative Dream Act that would provide a path to permanent residency to people brought here illegally as children, offering President Donald Trump an escape hatch on one of his most vexing immigration challenges.
The legislation creates an avenue for Trump to both fulfill a campaign promise to end an Obama-era program known as DACA while yielding to what appears to be his personal desire to let these immigrants remain in the country.
This is why I never liked the label of “conservative”. It changes based on events, political ideologies and agendas. Label me patriot; its meaning is clear. Consider the intangible nouns of honor, courage, duty, sacrifice, virtue and morality. Do you think these are more likely to apply to a patriot or a conservative. A patriot would put himself or herself above a political party’s agenda or greed. And that is how we will save our children’s future.
