“Dreamers” or “Nightmares”?

By Nicholas Stix

Someone near and dear to me, who shall remain nameless, just gave Howie Carr credit for referring to illegal aliens who allegedly were brought here as kids by their parents as “nightmares,” and linked to his January 14, 2018 column.
This latest controversy erupted during negotiations over the Democrats’ insane scheme to protect 800,000 illegal-immigrant criminals they call “Dreamers.” Their dream, our nightmare.
And that was only implicit, on Carr’s side.

On September 10, 2017, I made the usage explicit, in a headline:

”Yet Another Good Reason to Send DACA Nightmares Back, from Whence They Came: Tokyo Rose, aka Sen. John McCain, Says It Would be ‘Unconscionable’ to Do so.”

However, I’m willing to bet that someone else used “nightmares” in that fashion earlier, simply because it’s a natural.

In an attempt to break the ongoing deadlock over government funding and immigration reform, President Trump will sign an immigration plan into law that would allow as many as 1.8 million undocumented immigrants brought into the US as children to seek a pathway to citizenship, in exchange for billions of dollars for Trump’s border wall and sweeping changes to the legal immigration system, senior administration officials said Thursday.

The proposal would double the number of people covered by current protections from deportation.

According to Bloomberg, the White House will cast the plan as a concession to Democrats as they seek to ensconce GOP immigration policies. Meanwhile, to appease his core base, Trump will ask Congress for a $25 billion trust fund to pay for construction of a southern border all as well as enhanced security at ports of entry and along U.S.-Canada border.

The White House is urging the Senate to draw up legislation based on the plan and introduce it the week Feb. 5, just days before the government funding is set to expire, though officials said they do not have an assurance it will be brought up.

In other words, the DACA proposal will be presented to Democrats to take or leave; should they do the latter, another government shutdown will appear inevitable.
