Immigration Sophistry

The bottom line is those illegals are votes so the left can hold power. They pretty much have a lock on the vote along with what they can do fraudulently. There aren't enough good men and women left to stop this perversion of our country. Frankly, perhaps its time that America get taken down. The streets have run red with the blood of the innocent highlighted by the trial of abortion doctor in Philadelphia, and immoral men run the country stealing money while immorality in our society flourishes. Did God ignore His chosen people Israel when they did the same, or did he rise up conquerors to take them off into slavery as their just punishment? A wise man would prepare an exit strategy.
Most laws are meant to stop people from doing something, and to penalize those who disregard those laws. More generally, laws are meant to protect the society from the law breakers.

But our immigration laws are different. Here the whole focus is on the "plight" of those who have broken the laws, and on what can be done to lift the stigma and ease the pressures they feel, so that they can "come out of the shadows" and "normalize" their lives.

Merely using the word "illegal" to describe their breaking the law is considered to be a sign of mean-spiritedness, if not racism....
