Highlights of Democrats’ Nefarious Proposal for ‘Immigration Reform’

The Washington Post lays out the bullet points so we don’t have to. I wrote about the biometric national ID card mandate that links to a fingerprint database here. The plan is to plug everyone into the matrix within six years.

The highlights are disgusting and no one should feel safe. The borders would be heavily militarized with a “zero tolerance” for undocumented border crossings, special treatment for “highly skilled foreign students in the sciences” and “low-skilled non-agricultural workers”, all undocumented workers must have portions of their already-small fruits of their labor forcefully expropriated and “pay fees” (bribes) to apply for permanent residency, expand Big Brother technology to show you really cool looking demonstrations of how advanced they are.

I marched for May Day here in Chicago, but not for this. If you did, shame on you.

    Most people in America aren’t against immigration; they’re just against illegal immigration. For example, like most of our ancestors, my mother’s parents were immigrants. They came through Ellis Island and followed the various legal steps required in order to establish themselves as true citizens of this country. The immigrants crossing the Mexican border, however, have absolutely no interest in following these legal protocols. Once they cross the border, they change their names and/or purchase social security numbers in an effort to conceal their true identities from the law. It is not uncommon for an illegal immigrant to purchase not one, but two or more social security numbers, just in case one is flagged. I have witnessed this crime with my own eyes. (One day, a supposedly legal immigrant was asked to give their social security card to a receptionist for a job application and an interview. When the receptionist happened to ask to see the card a second time, the immigrant mistakenly handed over a different social security card with the same name on it, but with a completely different set of numbers…)

    Don’t get me wrong: I’m not against Hispanics. I have many Hispanic friends, but they either have green cards to work in the United States or have become legal citizens. They decided to follow the rule of law and work within the boundaries of our legal system. Unfortunately, many immigrants do not, and it those particular individuals that we are most concerned about.

    Now it seems that those who sympathize with illegal immigrants wish to hijack the discussion of reform by attacking the law recently imposed by the State of Arizona through protests and boycotts; a state mind you, that has been besieged with crime, drugs and an ever-increasing population of illegal immigrants. Don’t allow them this option. Speak out and take action. This is your country… fight for it.

    In closing, I consider myself to be a bleeding-heart liberal: a Democrat. My ancestor, Roger Williams – one of our founding fathers, was one too; regarding the acceptance of different nationalities, cultures and religions as the vitality and lifeblood of any country. Nevertheless, I think that he would agree with me; that immigrants wishing to become legal citizens have not only the obligation, but the civil and legal responsibility to follow the rules of law established by any country in which they wish to become authentic citizens, just as our ancestors – both yours and mine – struggled so arduously and righteously to achieve.

      ‘They broke the law’ isn’t justification for enforcing (using force against a person) the law. Your justification for the law’s existence becomes that it exists. This is ridiculous. This circular reasoning hijacks the discussion with platitudes that don’t objectively justify themselves. Frankly, this approach is lazy and ignorant.

      There’s no morally, logically consistent justification for immigration law. All attempts violate individual rights and there’s nothing liberal about permitting individual rights to be violated based on the dirt people are born on.
