Why, Exactly, Do Illegal Immigrants Come Here?
A split vote at the Supreme Court last month kept in place a lower court’s ruling against President Obama’s executive actions on amnesty. While the Supreme Court’s non-decision has not quite put the country in the clear – Obama has already vowed not to enforce congressional immigration law, regardless of court decisions – it does temporarily protect us from his unconstitutional tyranny.
In the wake of the non-ruling, Obama once again rolled out his Immigration Propaganda suitcase and proceeded to lecture Americans on their responsibilities.
He told us that we were a “nation of immigrants.”
He told us that it was a sign of compassion to let people cross into the U.S. with no consequences of any significance.
He said, “We’re going to have to decide whether we’re a people who accept the cruelty of ripping children from their parents’ arms – or whether we actually value families, and keep them together for the sake of all our communities.”
Since everyone is entitled to their own code of morality, let’s skip that argument. If you believe that it’s heartless and cruel to deport illegal immigrants, no logic is going to change your mind.
Instead, let’s simply ask the question: Why do so many Mexicans and South Americans want to come to the United States in the first place? Better climate? Easier access to Disney World? Lots of promising places to fish?
No, probably not, huh?
No, they come here because the United States makes their home countries look like backwater hellholes. Our ancestors built a land of independence – a country that was like nothing the world had ever seen. And whether it was through Providence, luck, genius, or some combination of the three, that country has become the greatest on Earth.
That title, though, is still very much up for grabs. It must be defended vigorously. Longer-lasting empires than ours have been buried by the winds of history. The minute we sit back, take this glorious land for granted, and assume that America will always be #1 – that’s when we risk losing everything.
As Donald Trump said when he announced his candidacy, when Mexico sends its people over, they’re not sending their best.
What happens when a country is overrun with people who aren’t particularly welcome in their homelands? What happens when a country is filled with people who want what America has to offer, yet despise everything she stands for? What happens when America slowly but surely begins to resemble the very countries from which these people fled?
What happens is that the illegal immigration problem will solve itself; eventually, no one else will want to come here.
