DACA – We should not penalize these now adults holding jobs, owning homes, raising families, productive members of our country just because their parents brought them illegally into our country. Former President Obama was compassionate and realized the value these people have since contributed to our country when he passed the executive order allowing them to stay.
But we must not forget the wording of this order and that it does specifically state deferred action for a period of two years subject to renewal and does not provide lawful status.
As usual and typical of our government we do things half ass and although our former President had good intentions he only prolonged the inevitable.
What Is DACA:
On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. They are also eligible for work authorization. Deferred action is a use of prosecutorial discretion to defer removal action against an individual for a certain period of time. Deferred action does not provide lawful status.
I think that the statement is true. If we are going to be about that abortion is wrong and that all children should be born, then let’s step forward and see how those children are going to be cared for. We have many unwanted births in the world with many tools to prevent conception in the first place and even tools to terminate the pregnancy with in a reasonable time. Our culture and spiritual beliefs are dated at best and need to be explored as we continue to populate our world. Especially when we are basically at the verge of our food capacity as we speak. I for one thinking globally, will not sacrifice the quality of my life going forward to be sure that we conceive and populate at every possible moment. We have tools and resources and they need to be used as well as identifying how we as a species are going to continue to live on the small planet that we are on within the current resources we have to sustain ourselves.
Regarding food production: There is waste in all food production from home cooking up the chain but let’s really explore why we are having bacteria and such in our food production and the fact that we are living more and more on genetically altered foods in order to increase food production. We already live in a world where the more privileged can populate with comfort while millions in the world populate without. Discussion can go on but I like the statement that we have many choices in bringing a child into the world and those choices should include the thought of how that child is going to be raised. At the end, one shouldn’t be having children because they biologically can, but rather they should have children because they are prepared to do so.
