Illegal immigrants are getting bolder by the day. A group of DREAMers threaten to leave after the Trump administration did not extend the United States if a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) executive order. The DREAMers say they will leave the country if a deal is not reached.
While speaking to CNN one of the DREAMers, Alex Valez, said,"I will leave. I will leave America as soon as possible,” claiming that she would prefer to depart the country on her own terms than wait for the United States to collect and deport her."
Per Daily Wire:
The theory appears to be that, if DREAMers suddenly disappear, Americans will notice their absence. Velez and her sister claim they own businesses, pay tuition, and hold jobs, and that America has a duty to keep them here in order to maintain their contributions.
The problem is, for the Velez sisters, striking against the United States for refusing to accommodate them isn't a plan with a likely payoff. The pair are undocumented citizens brought over by their parents from Venezuela, and the situation in their home country is less than ideal.
The United States Congress may be taking its time renewing the DACA Act, but Venezuela is currently crumbling under a dictator — so the theory that they'd return to a more awesome place to show President Trump what he's missing might not pan out.
If a comprehensive immigration reform plan is not approved by early March, DACA recipients will be allowed to finish out the term of their amnesty contract before being declared "illegal." Congress says it is working on a solution and President Trump has been clear that DACA recipients who overstay will not be targeted for deportation.
So if the DREAMers don't get their way they will follow the rules? This is insanity. At this point the jokes write themselves.

I thought they were “Dreamers”.
