LOU DOBBS (HOST): You say there is no such thing as a deserving Dreamer? Irrespective of any of that?
MICHELLE MALKIN: No, I don't.
DOBBS: Why is that?
MALKIN: No, I don't. Well, that phrase keeps repeating itself over and over again, from the mouths of both the chief labor lobby on the left and the right.
"Oh, they deserve protection, they don't deserve to be punished." Look, a lot of people in America, law-abiding Americans and law-abiding immigrants for that matter, are born into unfortunate circumstances. This is not how we come up with public policy, based on pulling the heart strings.
The fact is that if there were a single "deserving Dreamer" in this country, they would be deserving because they would acknowledge that they are owed nothing, and that they deserve nothing from a country into which they were born because of their parents' illegal activity.
These people, who claim to be so oppressed and have to live in the shadows, when they are out of the shadows, on the lawns of the White House, or in front of the public sidewalks in front of Trump Tower, demanding, demanding, demanding.
DOBBS: An entitled class, as you say.
