“Nobody on the right is calling for mass deportation, any more than we are calling for a mass round-up of, say, cocaine users. Illegal immigration is not terrorism. Yes, it is against the law. But when a problem is merely illegal, as opposed to a threat to national security, the task of law-enforcement is to manage it in a manner commensurate with its relative seriousness, not attempt to extinguish it. To extinguish it would amount to punishment that does not fit the crime and a prohibitive expenditure of resources better allocated elsewhere.” - Andy McCarthy.
Andy - you just don’t get it, do you? Illegal immigration IS a national security issue: it’s a drain on the economy and an invasion by a group of people who are doing all they can to make this country look like theirs - regardless of where they come from.
If this is their goal then their heads are further up their *sses than I first thought, as only a small minority in the current mob of illegals fit this description.
Most are simply poor, illiterate people attracted by our generous social safety net with no desire to assimilate.
For example, the unemployment rate in Mexico is about 4.9%, yet they still come here where the unemployment rate is 8%.
Hard to believe responsible, otherwise intelligent people can be so naive.
No one is against immigration. My grand parents were immigrants, pioneers, homesteaders, learned English and the American way to fit into the new world where they wanted to work hard in order to be successful, and they were very successful.
Illegal immigrants are not only illegal, but could give a rats ass about fitting. That’s what they don’t get, the illegal part!!
The WSJ has ALWAYS been for amnesty for illegal immigrants, just like, almost, all elitist Republicans, including Malcolm Steve Forbes, are for amnesty for illegal immigrants for cheap labor purposes. This is nothing new from the WSJ!
We are NOT against LEGAL IMMIGRATION!! What is wrong with people NOT BREAKING THE LAW?!? - This is unfair to those who in past centuries came here legally, according to the laws of this land, and sincerely tried to be law-abiding CITIZENS of this country!
Mass deportation of illegal immigrants hasn’t, even, been tried to the best of human abilities, so how is it that so many people are so sure that it won’t work? Also, how is all illegal immigration activities, from day one of all illegal immigration activities in total U.S. history, NOT terroristic activities, since it all does have a connection to national security issues? THIS WSJ ARTICLE DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE!
They WILL self deport when Obama crashes the economy...and they won’t be voting in the next election.
The only way out of this is to let the Dems have complete control for 4 years. It will be painful, but it’s the only way.
Meh, the WSJ editors want to keep their cheap maids, nannies, garden workers, etc...
but if only they could speak more english...
oh well, Thurston Howell III is learning spanish at Phillips-Exeter,...HE can talk to them.
How cute. The pajama-clad commie is inviting me to join his fascist party.
This is the REAL Mitt Romney on illegals.
My jaw dropped when I saw Mitt denying his illegals in the 2007 debate, and was not surprised what came of it a week later (well, surprised but not totally shocked).
Governor Mitt and wife Ann, were interacting with the Guatemalan illegals at their private home for 10 years. The landscaper that the illegals worked for, was a naturalized Colombian himself, personally chosen by Mitt, (A naturalized Colombian, Guatemalan illegals, and a sitting Governor during 4 years of that period), IDs better have been checked.
In December of 2006, the republican Governor was exposed, and suffered national embarrassment for using illegals for 10 years.
In December of 2007, in a national debate, Rudy Giuliani accused Mitt Romney of having run a Sanctuary Mansion. On national TV, Mitt Romney indignantly denied the claim.
A few days after the debate, the Boston Globe decided to look again at Mitts house, and guess what, they found Guatemalan illegals, they were working for the same Colombian, MITT HAD NEVER FIRED THEM!
Ten years and a national scandal, turned into 11 years, and into a second national scandal, with all the same players, the same contractor, Guatemalan illegals, and the same Mitt Romney and his wife interacting with them at their home during the week.
Yeah all those illegals that grew up with Che Guevara posters on their bedroom walls are suddenly going to have an epiphany and vote republican because Boner and the RINOs caves in and grant them amnesty. Right. [rollseyes]
