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.
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.
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.
Author’s note March 30, 2021: when I wrote the last update to this post on January 13, 2020 Donald Trump was still our president. A little over a year later the situation at our border with Mexico is catastrophic. Credit Joe Biden’s radical left anti-sovereignty policies and the expected surge of illegal immigrants Democrats assume will be their future voters.
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.
Stealing from the government used to be a crime. We called it “fraud.” There were all sorts of ways people defrauded the government. They took advantage of welfare benefits, tax and securities regulations, health care entitlements, and a multitude of other laws and programs ripe for abuse.
The ICE raids have finally started. We began cleaning house in January, nearly two years after the infamous surprise border surge from Central America.
The outcry has been far out of proportion to the first 121 illegals picked up.1 It’s not as if Jeh Johnson never warned us.
