RINOs demand amnesty for illegal aliens before year-end.
Yes, I know, they’re claiming it’s only for a few people, and they’re doing it for the children, and I’m a hard-hearted bastard for doubting them. But this is not my first rodeo. I remember 1986. I know a camel’s nose when I see one.
“They are American in every way except their immigration status.” That is precisely correct. They are NOT Americans, any more than the other 7 billion people on the planet who also are not Americans. We should treat all Not Americans the same.
It doesn’t matter whether they snuck across the border on their own, or with a friend, or with a parent, or rode here on top of a train. They had no right to come. Being here doesn’t give them a right to stay, to bring in their extended families, to work at jobs Americans could have had, to collect welfare benefits Americans pay to help our fellow citizens of America.
It doesn’t seem too much to ask…
…but I dream.
