Illegal Aliens: What Shadows?
By: John Lillpop
Those who favor amnesty for the 12-30 million illegal aliens currently in the United States have fashioned a new plea for sympathy that goes something like this:
Let’s make illegal aliens LEGAL, so they will no longer have to live in the “shadows.”
Political leaders like Ted Kennedy, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and even George Bush are actually trying to sell amnesty with this illogical message.
As is the case with ALL arguments in favor of illegal aliens, the “bring them out of the shadows” nonsense is nothing but recycled snake oil.
To begin with, illegal aliens are NOT forced to live in shadows. Each and every last one of these free loading criminals is free to obey U.S. law by getting the hell out of America and returning to Mexico.
And take your shadows with you!
Secondly: In 2006, millions of illegal aliens marched boldly through the streets of Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas and other American cities to DEMAND amnesty.
Many stupidly waved Mexican flags and shouted absurdities in Spanish.
Even to the most unsophisticated observer, it was obvious that these renegade mobsters were not inhibited and were certainly not timidly hiding in shadows.
The real solution to dealing with these miscreants:
Secure the borders militarily, deport all illegal aliens currently here, and enforce existing immigration laws.
That will solve the “shadows” crisis in a hurry.
