It may not make any new friends for me, but I agree with General Kelly and the President about the processing of all illegal, DACA, and "dreamers" in this country and their expressed view today related to our policy for this country.
I believe our southern border security needs to be from a birds-eye view of the country as our infrastructure is upgraded in our changing world amidst technology and other advances, many of which are being addressed in special hearings by congressional committees and subcommittees (I watched the one about the self-driving automobile expected to begin making its appearance in about three years in our major cities with high traffic). We need to think ahead before making commitments of billions of dollars for permanent barriers (the wall) between the U.S. and Mexico without knowing how it may affect our relationship with one of our best trading partners (the other being Canada).
The Secretary of Homeland Security was very rudely questioned and lectured in a hearing I witnessed concerning immigration. I do not believe certain members of Congress who seemed to be delighted to keep her on the hot seat while peppering her with questions and paying little attention to her presentation and comments. I understood her to say that DHS would be deporting a large percentage of those people in this country illegally because of their involvement in crimes or criminal activity (I could be wrong but I believe she mentioned about 73 percent). There are too many in the Democratic party and the media who are keeping ill will alive and well and growing by each news hour with appearances by always available Hispanic immigrants to berate anyone in this country who says no to anything they want as citizens with the same rights as those of us natural-born Americans.
Kelly is right. I agree with everything he says. It is what I expect from a General in a branch of the United States military doing the best he can to use his best skills to grease the wheels of politics. I salute you, General Kelly.
