HURT: Close down the Democratic minstrel show on immigration

The Republican Party has for years been in a quandary about how to address the issue of illegal immigration honestly and firmly without sounding racist. A good place for the party to start would be to knock off the brown-face minstrel show routine they learned from Democrats.

When Democrats “fight” for illegals, they talk about wanting to grant them amnesty for their crimes, welfare for not working and free health care. This way, Democrats presume, millions more will become addicted to the pitiful, slow-drip government teat and the party will enjoy another plantation of impoverished, enslaved voters for decades to come.

If Republicans are smart and genuinely serious about addressing the scourge of illegal immigration, they will reject these Democratic assumptions that illegals are intent on nothing more than being lazy deadbeat scofflaws and denounce Democrats for such a deviously racist portrayal.

In the decades since the last time the federal government supposedly sealed the border with Mexico, some 12 million people have “sneaked” into the country illegally. Some overstayed visas, but many millions more cheated death by crossing harsh deserts for hundreds of parched miles, guided only by murderous guides known as “coyotes” and leaving behind brutal lawlessness that most Americans cannot imagine.

Only a greasy, heartless politician would cast his eye upon this wretched display of personal human carnage, greedy criminal enterprise and bureaucratic malfeasance and see a way to use it to his own personal electoral advantage.

It is the sort of ruthless scheme we might expect from Harry Lime in “The Third Man.”

“Nobody thinks in terms of human beings,” Lime explains after he is exposed flooding the market with diluted penicillin that is killing orphans in postwar Vienna.

Covered California is running ads, in Spanish, telling illegals to sign up and they will not be turned over to ICE.
“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves.” G Washington July 2, 1776
