And the hits just keep on coming. As if Americans were not unrepresented enough already, the Republicans are rubbing in that fact and making sure you know that there is essentially nothing the hapless American citizen can do about it. They may have to rewrite the Constitution to make their case, but they are going to pass some kind of amnesty no matter what America thinks.
Just days after Marco Rubio gathered together some of the biggest open borders advocates outside the Hispanic caucus to pitch an amnesty scheme, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has jumped on the bandwagon with a little pandering of his own. Addressing the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), Cantor signaled his support for the DREAM Act, which would legalize millions that were smuggled into this country as children. Of course, the plan for those parent smugglers was always to exploit the lacadaisical immigration enforcement in this country and to possibly have some goofball politician grant them some kind of reward for their criminal behavior. They have this with Cantor, the latest in a string of Republicans intent on finishing off the United States.
But Cantor couldn’t use reason in his speech, so instead he made things up, attributed them to our founding fathers, and did it all with a straight face.
A good place to start is with the kids. One of the great founding principles of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents. It is time to provide an opportunity for legal residence and citizenship for those who were brought to this country as children and who know no other home,” Cantor told a crowded room of reporters and conservative scholars.
Really? If somebody knows where I can find that particular founding priciple, please point it out. I will publicly acknowledge that I was wrong if it actually exists.
Although Cantor did not endorse Marco Rubio’s bi-partisan amnesty plan, he, like John Boehner, Rand Paul and Paul Ryan, did not reject it either. They seem to have their own ideas, but when you hear them talk about it…they sound just like Marco Rubio. Maybe Cantor is floating this to see which way the wind is blowing. That alone should tell you what kind of politician this guy is. Well, him and Boehner laying back while Barack Obama manhandles them tells us what kind of politicans we’re dealing with.
Eric Cantor failed to tug at any heart strings with this speech. To pass a DREAM Act, or any kind of amnesty would be to reward criminals for their criminal acts. Keep in mind if the dreamers get their amnesty, then they can bring-or have their families that are here have some kind of legal status. Remember, the whole idea is to not take away the only thing these kids have allegedly known. That would include the family, the same family that may have brought them here illegally.
If we had only enforced our immigration laws and border security, interpreted the 14th Amendment as it was written and judged people on the content of their character, we wouldn’t be having this discussion. We didn’t do any of those things as a nation, and now Washington has been reduced to this: Pandering to the third world crowd who does not-and never has had any respect for them or the country they claim to represent.
