The Right reacts to DACA and other issues of the day 


A roundup of today’s editorials that includes why Republicans shouldn’t make a deal with Democrats on DACA, why Trump’s nomination for the administrator of NASA is qualified for the position, liberals are having ‘red pill’ moments which are enlightening them to the lies of the alt-left.

1. Congressional Republicans should tell Democrats ‘no deal’ when it comes to DACA

From The Hill: “President Trump’s decision to wind down DACA while giving Congress a six month window to “do something” to address the DACA population should have been universally applauded as an opportunity for lawmakers of both parties to finally come to the negotiating table and strike a compromise. One that the president would sign and the American people would support. Of course, that’s not what happened.”

2. Donald Trump should keep his promise to dump DACA: Texas Attorney General

From USA Today: “DACA triggers numerous consequences, allowing aliens to leave and re-enter the country, removing eligibility bars from Social Security, Medicare and the Earned Income Tax Credit, and conferring state benefits such as driver’s licenses and unemployment insurance.”

3. Why Jim Bridenstine is well qualified to head NASA

From Townhall: “Twenty people have been NASA administrator or acting administrator. Of those, twelve have been engineers. The second most common background? Administration—three (or four, if you include one whose master’s was in information systems), for each of whom the most advanced degree was a master’s in administration or management.”

4. Liberals sick of the alt-left are taking ‘the red pill’

From Fox News: “People of all ages and ethnicities are posting YouTube videos describing “red pill moments”—personal awakenings that have caused them to reject leftist narratives imbibed since childhood from friends, teachers, and the news and entertainment media.”
