DREAMer Thanks Trump, Rips Pelosi & Schumer for ‘Using Us as Pawns’

A Mexican native whose mother brought him to America at age 1 said President Trump has shown “leadership and compassion” toward DACA recipients like himself, while Democrats have conversely used them as “pawns.”Hilario Yanez, who goes by Eli, said Trump showed courage to tackle the illegal immigration issue comprehensively during his first year in office.”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 way,” 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.”

Yanez said he gets “goosebumps” when he hears the “Star-Spangled Banner” and said he would never take a knee like some athletes have, and declared a willingness to serve in the armed forces if asked.
