I go to work every day. My job is important to me. Could my company get along without me? Of course. Anyone can be replaced, but it would never occur to me to boycott my employer because of my political convictions. Boycotting your job to prove your worth is a good sign that you don’t value what you do and aren’t offering much to the economy.
What could be worse than millions of demanding foreigners who ignore our laws, protest how we enforce them, and refuse to leave? How about American citizens and government officials who stand with them? Protests over ICE raids rounding up criminal illegals make a very disheartening statement about where our citizens place their loyalty.
Protests over ICE raids: crime is an exception to the law
While the outcry got louder over ICE’s immigration clean up, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly told us:
Of those arrested, approximately 75 percent were criminal aliens, convicted of crimes including, but not limited to, homicide, aggravated sexual abuse, sexual assault of a minor, lewd and lascivious acts with a child, indecent liberties with a minor, drug trafficking, battery, assault, DUI and weapons charges.
When it comes to political predicaments it’s hard to top having to please everyone on immigration. The obvious solution is to do nothing. That hasn’t worked so well and is a damned no matter what you do scenario. Short of deporting every last illegal by the end of January, Trump will have a hard time pleasing hard liners.
No, the world is not coming to an end. All Trump did was lay out a plan to enforce the border. He didn’t advocate that we use snipers, sharpshooters, or land mines to stop unwary illegals and their DACA-bound kids.
He might as well have.
Instead we got a border wall, which is a pretty benign solution to a very big problem that a fading number of conservatives being criticized as Trump’s base still want to put a stop to.
Mexico and Central America are invading the U.S. thanks to the generous misuse of your tax dollars. Federal help has made being illegal in America easier and better than ever. If you come here and want to stay, chances are you can do it. If you want the government to lend a helping hand, chances are it will.
