The president has flung open the southern border to the point that, for all intents and purposes, it does not exist. Tens of thousands, soon to be hundreds of thousands, of illegal aliens are streaming over the border like the zombies in World War Z poured over walls of Jerusalem.

Democrats, and many Republicans, welcome this horde with open arms, food, shelter, health care, lawyers, and, eventually, the hope of citizenship. American sovereignty is an afterthought, if thought of at all.

So brazen have amnesty advocates become that the White House welcomed 10 illegal aliens to be honored as “Champions of Change” this week. But the White House is not foolish. The recipients weren’t chosen at random, they were chosen carefully.

All of the presidential honorees have attended or are attending college and are working in professional settings. This is to give the false impression that the people streaming across the border are just a few credits shy of a Ph.D. or have backpacks full of venture capital ready to start businesses. That’s not the case.

The reality is the people currently stretching shelters and military bases to capacity are uneducated, non-English speaking children and adults who add nothing but headcount to the economy. Many are sick, and none bring anything of value to the country, at least now.

This nation has 10 million unemployed citizens; it’s really our only growth industry in the Obama economy. Adding 11 million to 30 million more, either as guest workers or citizens, won’t magically create enough jobs for them all. So why tear down the border? Votes, obviously.

Uneducated, non-English-speaking masses will be overwhelmingly dependent on government, so they’ll vote for Democrats. That large of an influx of low-skilled workers will keep wages artificially low, which is what the Chamber of Commerce wants and is why so many Republicans support it. They know it’s not good for the country. But it’s good for them, so to hell with the country.

We’re told they can’t all be deported because there are too many of them. But the people telling us this are the same people who sit on their hands as thousands more pour into the country every day. They promise to secure the border after we grant amnesty to those here already, which is like a junkie promising to enter rehab after just one more fix. To hell with them.

We can’t afford to be the world’s life raft, especially while our economy is leaking air. Call me heartless, call me mean, I don’t give a damn – we need to seal the border and enforce current law, which includes deporting illegal aliens who come into contact with law enforcement. Prove to me you’re willing to enforce current law and we can talk about new laws. Don’t, and may you all suffer the same fate as Eric Cantor.
