The United States government might be having a government shut down on Friday over Daca. Daca stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. This policy is design to protect child or youth that came here illegally with their parents. This policy protects them from deportation, allows them to continue their education, and a work permit according to berkeley.edu. The issue, the United States government will shut down over illegal aliens, instead of helping American citizens.

The total amount of recipients in the Daca program is about 800,000. These individuals are being put in danger of deportation if the program expires on March 5, 2018 according to nilc.org. The Democrats are hoping to pass a budget with Republicans by keeping Daca in place. Donald Trump and the Republican Party wants border security that includes, more border agents, border wall funding, end of chain migration, and end of lottery visa program. However, it appears that this bill is not going to happen.

The Democratic Party is threatening to shut down the government to protect illegal aliens, instead of providing security to the American people. If the government does shut down on Friday, it will have an impact on museums, monuments, national parks, zoos, and the military according to usatoday.com. Even though if there is a shutdown, it is essential to understand that this is a terrible sign for international relations.

North Korea, Russia, and China will see this a sign of weakness. The surprising fact that a political party is willing to shut down the government to protect illegal immigrants, instead of fighting for guns rights, no new taxes, or other vital issues Americans are concerned with is sad. The Democratic Party is too helpful and friendly when it comes to the immigration issue. Being nice will get you walked on and taken advantage.

The Trump Administration is not allowing to be pushed aside by the Democratic Party. This is why president Trump is being active and not backing down to ensure that immigration security is key to protecting Americans. Unlike the Democratic Party, who just want more illegal immigration and work visas pouring into the country. Trump should let the government shut down if the Democratic Party wants to protect undocumented immigrants. By not backing down the immigration issue might change the subject of illegal immigration forever. The start of a new age by enforcing immigration law.
