Up to 46% of voters nationwide supported President Donald Trump when he proposed sending illegal immigrants straight to sanctuary cities. As a country, we can’t handle more than 100,000 people per month coming into the United States in manners inconsistent with our laws and regulations.
But when we have politicians and places that advocate for letting these people come into the United States in manners inconsistent with our laws and regulations, does it not make sense to assume it would be okay, let alone welcomed to send these people there?
Almost half of all Republican voters consider illegal immigration a national security threat for America. Many Democratic politicians consider illegal immigration to be a non-issue, let alone a security issue.
Why are Democratic politicians in heavily Democratic cities opposed to taking in the poor, down on their luck migrants they rant and rave about in the streets?
How can Democrats argue that illegal immigrants strengthen our sovereignty as a nation?
Politicians who oppose getting control of the people who enter this country in a manner different than the way in which the laws/regulations prescribe, must contend with one fact: 79% of voters believe that illegal immigration is bad for America.
You can be pro-immigration while requiring that people follow the rules. In what other example does this same logic apply?
Some people may not believe that passing a test should be required to obtain a drivers license. Maybe they should deem those who want to uphold the requirement of passing a drivers test anti-driver.
Some people may not believe that passing an exam should be required to become a doctor. Maybe they should deem those who want to uphold the requirement of passing an exam anti-doctor, anti-healthcare.
Let’s go back to the quote above, 79% of voters believe that illegal immigration is bad for America. Question. Does this quote mean that 79% of voters don’t want ANY immigrants?
Here is another fact to be considered: 29% of voters think granting legal status to those illegal immigrants already here is more important than dealing with illegal immigration.
There are more voters that believe illegal immigration is bad, than there are voters that believe that we need to immediately grant legal status to the illegal immigrants already here. So when politicians say we need to “deal with the illegal immigrants here before we can deal with the illegal immigrants on their way or at the border” be advised that they are not representing the will of the American people.
If you are one of the people that have been mislabeled for simply asking questions, know this… It is okay to ask questions, and you should.
When you get on an airplane, they ask… Who are you?
When you apply for a job, they ask… Who are you?
When you go to the welfare office for welfare benefits, they ask… Who are you?
When you start school, they ask… Who are you?
When you start a business, the Secretary of State and IRS ask… Who are you?
In this country, when you travel, you are asked for identification. Why can we not ask for identification from the people traveling here?
In this country, when you try to positively impact the economic status of your family, you are asked for identification. Why can we not as for identification from those coming to this country seeking to positively impact the economic status of their families?
In this country, when you are down on your luck and need help from the government, you are asked for identification. Why can we not ask for identification from those seeking help from our government?
In this country, when you make a decision to increase your earning potential, by means of an education, you are asked for identification. Why can we not ask for identification from those who have made a decision to increase their earning potential, by means of an education?
In this country, when you start a business, the Secretary of State, in your local state, and IRS ask for identification of the individuals behind the organization. Why can we not ask for identification from those who wish to release their entrepreneurial genius here in the United States of American?
Who are you?
This is a fundamental question of American society.
Some people say that President Trump could not have been serious in making the suggestion to send illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities. We think he was, and is, serious, but for the benefit of this post, we’ll give the other side the benefit of the doubt and assume they are right. Let’s assume the President wasn’t serious about sending illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities. Should this assumption detract from our nations need for a serious debate about the best way to address the problem of illegal immigration?
Here’s one last fact to consider: Politicians in sanctuary cities, they can’t have it both ways, they can’t demand the nation take in illegal immigrants while closing their city and state borders to illegal immigrants. Do you want them here or do you want them to leave, make up your mind.
