A Mexican who was brought to the United States when he was 1-year-old appeared on Fox and Friends this morning to talk about the ongoing DACA saga. Democrats believe DREAMers are hardcore Democratic supporters, which is why they support amnesty in the first place. So they must have lost their minds after hearing what Hilario “Eli” Yanez had to say this morning.
Eli shocked the audience after praising President Trump saying he showed “leadership and compassion” towards people like him. He also slammed Democrats, accusing them of using people like him as “pawns.” He said that the president was showing a lot of courage:
“‘Here’s a guy who wants to provide a pathway to citizenship for myself and really make a difference in my life,’ he said, adding that if the president believes a border wall is necessary for national security, then he would support it.
“‘I think it’s time for people who want to come to the United States to focus… on skills so [they] contribute to the American economy right away,’ Yanez, who was born in Tampico, Tamaulipas said.
“Yanez said top Democrats have ‘no clear message’ on immigration policy, other than to ‘us[e] us as pawns.’
“‘They never should have shut down the government over DACA,’ he said, mentioning Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) by name. ‘There is plenty of time on the table to fix this. March 5 is the deadline.'”

He also scored points with the audience saying he was ashamed of professional athletes taking a knee during the national anthem. He admitted he gets “goosebumps” when he hears the Star-Spangled Banner. He hopes to serve in the Armed Forces someday.
