After watching this caravan of illegals headed for the border, It reminded me of something.
I don’t know why it is that having illegals on your doorstep should cause instant knee-jerk sympathy and compassion? That we just have to reach out to save them, as if plucking them out of a pond to rescue them from drowning? Why make them into victims?
And I don’t get why we are compelled to organize, send lawyers into the masses to give them talking points or aid their conspiracy to penetrate our borders, by hook or crook?
No, all that seems to be routine while Americans are disgusted. We were told back when Elian Gonzales was deported that he just had to go back, as much compassion as people may have about it. The rule of law was supreme, they said.
So why is it that, like the old wet foot dry foot policy, that a mere foot here automatically grants you some status, and access to our courts, and has all these benefits? As if the burden of proof is on us as to prove why they need to go back, why they cannot just stay. Of course many leftists want them all to stay — like an entitlement program.
Well, this got me thinking of a parallel to this border crisis. I have the answer, we do have laws and immigration laws. When someone touches ground at JFK from a foreign country, one does not automatically become a citizen. You aren’t granted special status and all these benefits by setting feet on ground, simply by stepping off a plane.
Those people are already documented who they are etc. They don’t get to say, “I’m here now so you cannot throw me out or send me back.” They are not teamed up with a lawyer on arrival to stake their claim of entitlement. I don’t know anyone who would accept that.
Just a thought
