One of the best-received lines in President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address came during the president’s call for Congress to take up immigration reform. Calling for an end to immigration policies like chain migration and the diversity visa lottery, the president said that as an elected official, his duty is to American citizens first.
“Americans are dreamers too,” the president said.

“Day in and day out, we’re told about the ‘dreamers,'” Levin said. “Who are the dreamers? Illegal alien children.”
“Well, we have dreamers too. Our children. What about our children?”
In 2015, Levin said those who ask about the dreams of Americans would be “condemned” and “accused of xenophobia.”
Acknowledging that Americans have dreams too is divisive? Believing that American elected officials have a duty to American citizens first, and not to foreign nationals who entered the country illegallyfrom wherever, is xenophobic and racist?
America is divided today because of the radical extremism of the Democratic Party and its disturbing preference for elevating the demands of illegal aliens, so-called “dreamers,” above the needs of American citizens.
Americans do have dreams too, and it’s about time an American president said so.
