McCainâ€™s Phoney Compassion for 80-Year-Old Illegals
By: John Lillpop
John McCain still does not get it on illegal aliens. In fact, he is not even close.
Rather than accepting the will of the people and committing to the rule of law, McCain continues his obstinate fight on behalf of illegal aliens, at the expense of the American people.
McCainâ€™s pandering to illegals hit a new last November when the senator searched every nook and cranny for a viable excuse with which to oppose mass deportations.
The best he could come up with was a specious argument based on a hypothetical crook and granny.
Speaking in Clemson, South Carolina, McCain responded to a question posed by a student by saying:
â€œIf youâ€™re prepared to send an 80-year-old grandmother whoâ€™s been here 70 years back to some country, then, frankly youâ€™re not quite as compassionate as maybe I am,â€ McCain said.
With all due respect to Senator McCain and his alleged compassion, his hypothetical begs the following question: If his illegal alien granny has been in the U.S. for 70 years, why in the bloody hell did she not take advantage of the amnesty act of 1986?
Too lazy and or stupid? Unable to speak, read or understand English? All of the above?
The point is that America has been invaded by as many as 38 million illegal aliens since 1986. And since 9/11, the nation has been at war.
Especially during time of war, our borders must be secured and those here illegally must be hunted down and forced to leave.
If, while bolstering Americaâ€™s homeland security, an occasional 80-year-old granny here illegally is forced to return to her nation of birth, so be it!
Worrying about such situations should not concern elected officials who have a constitutional responsibility to enforce the law and defend the interests of the American people.
By the way, how about some compassion for American citizens for a change, Big Mac?
