Border Crossing UACs Direct Result of Obama's Misguided DACA

It’s just an acronym that hides the humanitarian cost
Hundreds of UACs flooding across a border whose security has been lost
No surprise the fault lies at DACA’s Obama’s feet
If you as a minor can make it here all deportation efforts you will defeat
If there are children their parents cannot be too far ahead or too far behind
Overwhelmed by kids ICE is turning to crossings an eye blind
We are so deep in debt we can barely educate and care for our citizen’s own
Social services shrunk and cut to the bone
Instead of opening our borders to the best and brightest who head to the end of the line
A steady stream of the poorly educated, low skilled are flowing from poverty’s confines
You cannot have immigration reform with a border like a porous sieve
Not when coming from poverty this country is a better place to live
Take away the jobs, the incentive to put life and limb at risk to cross disappears
No one should be able to hire an illegal and if one does that person should be put in fear
As long as DACA is presumed to deportation prevent
The flow of UACs will never relent
On TV we need to have the scenes of children being boarded onto buses or planes
Being sent back to the villages from where they came
Tough deal but the border we must seal
Then a path to citizenship for the 11 million here we have to deal
