This past week, President Trump announced that it was being considered and reviewed that overcrowded detainment facilities would be relieved by releasing (by court order) the illegal immigrants into sanctuary cities and states. Of course, the Leftist Mayors, Governors, and various Congress-critters predictably howled with outrage, charging the President with almost every accusation under the sun.
Quite frankly, I’m sitting back with equal parts being amused, laughing, and somewhat sad.
The amused and laughing parts are at the amazingly nova-bright in-your-face hypocrisy of the Left. For the past couple of years, they have been screaming about the inhumane conditions and cruelty of the illegal immigrants being kept in detainment centers. They have touted the benefits of the illegal immigrants – diversity, increased economic prosperity, and lower crime(!). When it’s announced that they may get more of their cherished illegal immigrants, then they scream about the inhumanity and cruelty of releasing those same illegal immigrants into cities that have publicly proclaimed themselves of being open and welcome to illegal immigrants.
Which is it? Open city or closed city? Good illegals or bad illegals? President Trump has the Left holding their pants up in the corner that they have put themselves in with no way out. It’s about time someone has shown these morons what hypocrites they really are.
The sad part comes into a couple of categories.
The first is for the immigrants themselves. Most, not all, are looking for nothing more than survival and a better life. I fully understand that, but that’s where my sympathy ends. Crashing through a country’s border and then having to look over your shoulder for the rest of your life is no way to live. You would always be illegal, and probably being taken advantage of as well. There are better ways to do this the right way.
The second are for the citizens of the towns, cities, and states (mostly in California) that have declared themselves as sanctuaries for the illegal immigrants. I don’t know if the citizenry voted/approved of the sanctuary status for their locations, but I’m fairly sure that once the influx hits, job availability will go down, wages will go down, and crime will go up. I’m sure that once the pain hits, the citizens will want change, but I’m not wholly sure if they will connect the actions of their elected officials with the problems and vote someone in that isn’t a Liberal Democrat.
What is evil about the whole situation is that the Liberal Democrats have put their political power above their sworn duty to serve the citizens that elected them. They are using the illegal immigration issue, in part, to solidify their hold on power. By using this issue, they are using the illegal immigrants – people – to further this agenda.
In other words, they are hurting thousands of people, citizens and illegals, to acquire power. Folks, that’s a type of cynical evil that I’m appalled at.
I hope that the people of these cities, towns, and states stand up to this evil, shout “Enough!!”, and can these twits as soon as possible. The sooner they wake up, the better.
I have my doubts that will happen anytime soon, but that’s another post for another time.
