Jeh Johnson, the Secretary of Homeland Security spoke at the U.S. Conference of Mayors saying the millions of illegal immigrants into this country have “earned the right to be citizens.” I want to know just how they’ve earned it?
These people are already citizens of other countries, this isn’t their country, not their homeland, they owe no allegiance, nor bear any loyalty to this country. Instead they have crept over our borders, or overstayed their visas in order to live off the largesse of the American people. Welfare and social programs that don’t check too deeply into whom they are pay money to people with no right to it as criminals. But because they broke into the country as children or have lived here for twenty years somehow Secretary Johnson, which is just another name for a dick, thinks, believes with all his bleeding liberal scheming heart, that these people should be citizens. Mostly so they can vote Democrat I imagine.
The man is the Secretary of the Homeland security, which frankly is just a smidge from a police state type force, and he should be keeping or at least interested in keeping illegals out of our country and securing the borders from all kinds of threats, but instead he and by extension his department have opted for the “toe the party line” partisanship that seems to be required of anyone in government anymore.
Bastiat was not wrong when he said in The Law: “The law perverted! And the police powers of the state perverted along with it! The law, I say, not only turned from its proper purpose but made to follow an entirely contrary purpose! The law become the weapon of every kind of greed! Instead of checking crime, the law itself guilty of the evils it is supposed to punish! (emphasis mine)
Is this not exactly what the Secretary of Homeland Security is proposing? I mean, there is only one definition of illegal, to break a law, commit a FEDERAL crime by entering, living in, working, stealing social security numbers, and receiving welfare, child tax credits, and etc, immigrant is there not? And instead of working on serious reform, real justice, not that fake “social justice” bull$hit, and an actual solution he wants to add these 11 million people as citizens. The law as defined by the founders never intended for our borders to be a sieve for the rest of the world. The law was not there to provide everyone with a sob story, or a hardship with a handout for life. This is not law, is not justice, it is the perversion of our system and our very way of life. American exceptionalism, American ingenuity, and hard labor have been replaced with the welfare system. That system is not only being strained by the millions of Americans that have just quit doing anything, but also by the millions of immigrants with their anchor babies and their stolen identities that have decided America is an easy mark for a handout. We should not be rewarding these people under any stretch of the imagination.
It would be like if I broke into someones house unknowingly over their vacation then when they returned told them I had the right to live there, no borders and all that crap. Borders are just property rights that have been given international recognition, so if someone breaks into your property are you not allowed under the law to either send them away or punish them? Yes, yes you are.
Do not be confused by false arguments, ad hominem attacks, emotional appeals, or any other kind of specious thinking. There is right and there is wrong and rewarding people for breaking federal law does not fall under the former, not in the slightest, and we should tell the government so.
