Pre-emptive Surrender of the Borders
You can tell that the tide is turning in the debate over illegal immigration, because the advocates of open borders and amnesty are no longer arguing about what should be done. Now their argument has degenerated into a description of what can’t be done. From a dozen mouths this week we have heard: “we just can’t deport 11 million immigration criminals –even if we wanted to,” and of course the amnesty proponents don’t want to.
The follow-up question I never hear asked is: “If we can’t deport 11 million, then how many can we deport; and can we get started on that number?” The implicit answer always seems to be “we cannot deport any number”.
With his usual clever wit Mac Johson makes a great case. The only thing he leaves out, something most people leave out, is that if we take away the carrot, nay the carrot cake that we offer to illegal aliens in the form of health care, food, housing, jobs, education we may not even need enforcement.
It's the same priciple as "don't leave your laptop in your car" so that the thief won't break in. If they can't get their goodies that our public officials are currently tripping over themselves to see how much and how fast they can get them stuff (all in Spanish) then they won't break in to our country!
