New York Senator Charles “Chuck” Schumer is the worst kind of hypocrite. The illegal alien situation has not changed in decades. It has gotten worse. The United States of America has millions of illegal aliens hiding out all over the country. Many do not return to home countries at the end of VISA terms. They just stay in the shadows. Many crossed our nation’s borders — mostly the southern border with Mexico — illegally and now are also hiding in the shadows.
There is a huge argument about the building of a WALL or BARRIER at our southern border. On the one side are those who favor abiding by the laws of the United States of America. On the other are those who toss law to the wind for their own political gain.
On the one side are those who favor immigration reform to include ending anchor babies, stopping chain migration, instituting e-Verify and stopping immigration by lottery. Most favor immigration based upon merit to allow those in who will be assets to our country. Many favor a reduction of all immigration.
On the other side are those who want open borders, mass inflow of uneducated, unskilled, even diseased people who will end up on welfare, Medicare, be drains on schools and hospitals and more. They would allow criminals in along with drugs and human/child trafficking. OK with them.
At Georgetown Law School in 2009 Senator Schumer gave a talk. He said…
“We must create a system that coverts the current flow of primarily low skilled illegal immigrants into the United States into a more manageable and controlled flow of legal immigrants who can be absorbed by our economy. Let me elaborate.
The first of these seven principles is that illegal immigration is wrong — plain and simple. Until the American people are convinced that we will stop future flows of illegal immigration, we will make no progress on dealing with the millions of illegal immigrants who are here now and on rationalizing our system of legal immigration — plain and simple and unavoidable.
When you use phrases like “undocumented workers”, we convey a message to the American people that their government is not serious about combating illegal immigration which the American people overwhelmingly oppose. If you don’t think its illegal, you are not going to say it. I think it is illegal and wrong. We have to change it.
Above all else, the American people want their government to be serious about protecting the public, enforcing the rule of law, and creating a rational system of legal immigration that will pro-actively fit our needs rather than reactively responding to future waves of illegal immigration.
People enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who enter the US legally.
To the advocates for strong, fair, effective, comprehensive immigration reform — and I am certainly one — I say to you that the American people will never accept immigration reform unless they truly believe that their government is committed to ending future illegal immigration. And any successful comprehensive immigration reform bill must recognize this fact.”
You get the hypocrisy. He and his fellow travelers have no regard for US law. They care only about obstruction and power. Period.
For now, the USA is a sovereign nation and the light of the world. If we want to stay that way, the flow of illegal aliens must be stopped.They cannot be allowed to overwhelm our society in service of their own selfish wants. Look at Europe.
Finally, the people of this country must come to some consensus about what to do about the millions of illegal aliens living in our midst. But now…
BUILD THE WALL!
