On Monday, New York’s Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo and Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced that they will sue the Trump administration for ending Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. Obama passed DACA in 2014 with no input from Congress, which makes this law blatantly unconstitutional. As such, Trump campaigned on repealing it, and now plans to end it, as Politico reported yesterday.

In turn, Cuomo and Schneiderman released a statement about a potential lawsuit if DACA is repealed, saying that “ending the DACA program would be cruel, gratuitous, and devastating to tens of thousands of New Yorkers—and I will sue to protect them. Dreamers are Americans in every way …”

You can read the full statement here:

Ironically, in 2014, Cuomo said that “extreme” conservatives who support the Second Amendment and who are pro-life “have no place in the state of New York.” He stated in a radio interview that if these extreme conservatives are right-to-life, pro-assault weapon and anti-gay, they have no place in the state of New York, “because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

So, in other words, illegal aliens deserve protection from the state government, but conservative Americans don’t.

While this is abhorrent, it isn’t surprising in the least.

Because this is how the Left thinks. The Left, which has taken over virtually the entire Democrat party, is mostly secular and atheist. As such, the lack of a god leaves an open vacuum. That vacuum must be filled somehow, so the God we know is replaced with a god of their own — the god of big government. So, if you, as a conservative, or even a classical liberal, oppose their “god,” you become a blasphemer and must be destroyed at all costs. Hence, you have no place in New York, one of their biggest strongholds in the country.

However, the Left has long seen illegal immigrants as potential voters, or potential converts to their “religion.” As much as they pretend DACA is a human rights issue, rest assured that if the Hispanic/Latino communities tended to vote Republican, the Democrats would be the biggest cheerleaders for Trump’s border wall under the guise of law and order and national security. To protect the country they constantly berate.

To understand the Left, the first thing we need to do is realize that they stand for no principle other than the acquisition of power.
