Even though hoards of unaccompanied, illegal, immigrant children are attempting to & crossing our southern border; we should not lose sight of the fact that this is America. We are not a sanctuary state nor should we accept role as a solution to the problems that the Third World’s toxic societies suffer, because of their inability to control crime & keep adequate order.
Compassion aside, our country is at risk of becoming not-America. Merging societies negates the uniqueness of individual countries, turning them into reflections of each other with only regional governments & their agendas marking a difference between them.
Thomas Sowell writes,
Immigration laws are the only laws that are discussed almost entirely in terms of what can be done to help those who have broken the law. Some want to help a little and some want to help a lot. But amnesty lite is still amnesty.
Some people seem to think that amnesty is not amnesty if you throw in requirements for citizenship. Amnesty is not some esoteric concept. It means that you are not going to be punished for breaking the law — and that simply brings laws into contempt. Denying citizenship is not a punishment because crossing the border illegally does not entitle you to citizenship. Providing a legal status short of citizenship is not punishment either.
There is no requirement for either amnesty or for citizenship that President Obama cannot ignore or dilute unilaterally, as he has ignored or diluted existing immigration laws, as well as other laws. Barack Obama is the biggest reason to pass no immigration “reform” laws until after he is gone.
Conservatives with memory & experience know that the distraction of promising to control the border as a consolation to granting some sort of process to citizenship, is a scam. It’s been done before. The border wasn’t secured. The border isn’t secure.
These unwanted children, who’ve been sent here by their parents or governments, should be loaded aboard ships & planes, returned to their country of origins, so that their own countries can sort this pathetic ruse out, on their own, without further ado. We should not damage ourselves by crying into our soup, just because the topic is children.
