So often times those of us who want a secure border and current immigration laws to be enforced are labeled as “xenophobes,” “racists,” and the like, by the rampagin’ “open borders” crowd—the implication being we’re “anti-immigrant.” Hey, I have no problem with legal immigration. I think it’s a good thing. But we have immigration laws, like most nations do, thank you very much.
The administration and its supporters consistently insist they “care” more about the plight of immigrants, unlike those “hateful, xenophobic, racist right-wingers who just sit around and watch Fox Noise.” So, it might behoove us to define our terms.
Just what is caring?
Do you care more about people if you’re willing to allow anybody into this country, especially considering what happened on 9/11? Wouldn’t we want to know who’s coming and going at this point? (Just a thought.) How about all those unaccompanied children pouring across the southern border who have gone through G-d only knows what on their treacherous journey? Is it caring to facilitate it? What if it was your child?
Is it caring to give someone whatever you think they need in order to create a dependent, for the express purpose of creating compliance in that individual? Don’t psychologists call that enabling? … creating a co-dependent relationship that is harmful and self-destructive to both parties?
And what about all the people who have legally emigrated to the United States–the people followed all the rules and waited years to become American citizens? Fairness and equality? “Bring them out of the shadows”?
A quote from Barack Obama’s book Audacity of Hope:
Well, enough of my rambling. Just needed to get that off my chest. I think a LEGAL immigrant can sum it up much better than I can. So, for your edification, I’ve included an epic rant below by a legal immigrant (Twitter: SúperLEGALImmigrant) that went viral recently during Chairman Obama’s decree to grant executive amnesty to several million illegal immigrants. Let’s just say she systematically abolishes every one of Obama’s talking points regarding his recent imperial actions. In this, there can be no doubt.
So, enjoy … back out quiet …
