That’s the law. Nothing can be done about it.
And that’s the liberal reaction to any rational action to stop the stampede of uneducated, unruly, fractious, antagonistic masses toward and over the U.S. southern border. Liberals call law-enforcement unlawful. Or, they shoehorn the act of holding the line into the unlawful category.
Prevent uninvited masses from entering the country: Unlawful.
Tear gas marauding migrants for stoning Border Patrol personnel: Illegal, immoral, possibly even criminal.
Illegal. Unconstitutional. Immoral. Un-American. These are some of the refrains deployed by wily pitchmen, Democrats and some Republicans, to stigmatize and end any action to stop, disincentivize and summarily deport caravans of grifters, bound for the U.S. in their thousands.
Our avatars of morality and legality seldom cite legal chapter-and-verse in support of their case for an immigration free-for-all.
To go by the law, as professed by the liberal cognoscenti, claims-makers must be allowed to make their claims.
Could the cuddly treatment mandated be predicated on the Christine Blasey Ford standard? Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser claimed she had A Story to tell. So, the country had to hear her tell it. A compelling standard.
That’s what happens when feelings and fancy replace reason and facts.
No wonder the noise-makers are drowning-out the authentic claims-makers in society. Against the sainted noise-makers on the border all laws appear to be null and void or tantamount to torture
The Left is creating reality on the ground, all right. But the prime real estate liberals hope to colonize is in every American’s head.
Ruffians are breaching the U.S. border near Tijuana, demanding access to the American Welfare State. That’s the reality! Helped by the American left’s monopoly over the intellectual means of production—the average American is being encouraged to look at this aberrant apparition and “think”:
“Awesome. This is who we are. American laws are amazing for inviting this.”
Illegal, immoral, un-America: These are all pejoratives reserved not for the grifters making claims against Americans; but for the Americans resisting their claims.
To listen to the liberal propagandist class is to come away believing that breaking into America is legal so long as you call yourself a refugee or an asylee and are “seeking a better life.” Moreover, provided an asylee, refugee or saint in disguise appears at a port of entry (San Ysidro, in our case), then he must be admitted into America.
So, is The Law an ass or are those lying about the law the real asses?
A bit of both. …
