For all the demands that we delve into the identities and backgrounds of citizens who purchase guns, did anyone stop to consider why we deny the same citizens the protection of not having to compete with illegals for work? When gun owners go to the polls should they worry that their voting rights are not being protected, either, because the identification needed to buy a firearm is not required to exercise the right to vote?
Labor and voting rights have been reinvented by Democrats to suit the needs of non-citizens. Labor rights mean the right to the minimum wage without an accompanying work authorization. Voting rights mean that anyone should be able to cast a ballot without having to prove who they are. Were these protections stripped away in anticipation of the immigration reform showdown taking place on Capitol Hill?
Verifying employment eligibility is its own fraud.
Washington will not need to worry much longer about businesses verifying eligibility for employment. If Democratic immigration reform passes, the concept of illegal workers will become as extinct as efforts to clamp down on America’s illegal workforce. In a climate where labor rights mean threatening employers and protecting the rights and wages of illegals who have jobs (see: Why No Effort to Identity and Report Illegal Workers?), efforts with tools like E-Verify are a fraud and a waste of time.
No matter what they promise to finesse their immigration bill, Democrats in Washington will quickly throw in the towel on all but the most cursory background checks. Trying to sort through false identities is an exercise in time wasting, especially when the goal is to approve as many applications and get as many future voters on the path to citizenship as possible. The big sell-out will come when the decision is made that illegal workers get to keep their jobs no matter whose Social Security number they are working under. When that happens, American citizens will know once and for all just how much their government values protecting their identities.
Voting rights mean everyone has the right to vote?
When it comes to the vote, identity no longer matters (see: Voter ID Fraud Denied by Democrats as Identity Mills Thrive). How did we stray so far off course that being required to prove we are eligible for the right to vote is a violation of our civil rights?
It still floors me every time I go to the polls that the only prerequisite to casting a ballot is giving a name and scrawling an illegible signature on a card. Perhaps the right to vote no longer matters. Not many citizens bother to use it.
We had local elections in the Chicago area this week. Considering that much of the interaction of citizens with government is at the local level, the lack of turnout was appalling. When I asked an election judge just before the polls closed how the turnout was, she shook her head and offered a two-digit number. That’s why Democrats can comfortably look the other way as illegals take American jobs and voter ID laws that protect voting rights are blocked. Too many American citizens just don’t care.
