It seems to me, when an immigrant to the United States comes here illegally, it is stealing what others have worked for. Those that come to the US legally, have had to make sacrifices… and in some cases have waited for years. It seems unlikely that those who have struggled for years and went without, so they could give their children a better life, would appreciate someone else stealing, what they have worked years for. This is among the most spurious arguments we are hearing in this election year. If the American voter falls into this trap, the progressives have laid, it will ensure that illegal immigration and all the ills that go along with it, are entrenched into American society and culture forever.
Most people don’t appreciate someone stealing what they have worked for. Lets say, for example, that a person steals a car from a showroom lot. That person needs the car. The car will make his or her life better, in that it will provide for them transportation, which is in itself a form of freedom. Now, the argument that the progressive make, is that the car dealership has many cars and the loss of one is not an undue burden for them. So, since the person who stole the car needs it, and the person who owns the the car doesn’t, the car should just be given to the thief. Anyone with half a brain can see the sophistry there. But illegal immigration is steeped in such emotional rhetoric that logical thought is almost impossible. Those that engage in logic are vilified as hateful people when the really hateful are those that seek an underclass.
Illegal immigrants are not a valid voting bloc. Those that are illegal immigrants have no legal ability to vote. That the Presidential election is said to hinge on the candidates stand on illegal immigration, IE. The one that promotes it the most will win the Hispanic vote, is insanity. It is premised that those who have struggled, waited years, worked keeping their paperwork up to date and then taken the freeman’s oath and become US citizens, will will vote for the candidate that most encourages further theft of what they have worked for, even as those who have been virtuous, wait to bring their family here legally. This seems absurd to me. Do you want the person who steals a car, to keep it, even though you had to work for yours? What are the incentives there?
People who come to America illegally, put themselves at risk, and endanger the civil society of America. Most people who come to America simply want to be Americans and participate in the American way of life. They want the liberty that the American Constitution provides, they seek economic opportunity that capitalism creates, and for their children to be Americans. There are those, however, that don’t come here wanting these things. Those people seek to destroy what America stands for. Be it for philosophical reasons, communists who despise the market system, and understand that for the oppression of Marxism to ever last, there must be no examples of capitalism to exist… no shining city on a hill. Some seek America’s destruction for religious purposes, and others are simply criminals, looking for a more wealthy victim. Illegal immigration allows these evil people to come here, and work their diabolical plans… in the dark.
Promoting illegal immigration is tantamount to endorsing second class citizenship. Those people who actually want a better life for their children are poorly served when they come here illegally. They have no real rights and by definition live on the boundaries of society. They must work for less, and therefore, lower the prevailing wage, for people who are here legally. People who are illegal, are subject to deprivations, the victimizer would immediately meet with a long jail sentence… if they were visited on legals or citizens. But more perniciously, when illegal immigration is encouraged by our government, it opens the door to more of it. Making more and more people subject to these types of oppression, tantamount to modern slavery.
The answer is to allow unlimited legal immigration, to those who honestly seek to come here, and participate in the American experiment. No matter if they are from Guatemala, Nigeria, Slovakia or Thailand. Especially to the oppressed around the World. People who want to be Americans must be legal. Those that seek to undermine our civilization must be barred. Opening legal immigration, and closing illegal immigration, would achieve these results. That our elected politicians argue and act otherwise, is clear evidence, they seek the civil strife and underclass, that illegal immigration results in. The US is a place, where there should never be an underclass, ever! Equality under the law is impossible if some people are illegal… BY DEFINITION!
So, if a politician, or unbiased media person, claims that the Hispanic vote will turn on the candidates stand on promoting illegal immigration, they are engaging in sophistry in it’s purest form. They seek to lower the lot of Mankind, and undermine the very essence of America… Equality for all under the law. But then again, not everyone who hates capitalism and freedom are illegal immigrants… some hold high elected office, along with all those who hold the title of tzar…
