Evidently the Wall Street Journal had a recent editorial asserting that if Republicans go down the Trump road on immigration our goose will be cooked for decades to come. They cite German and Irish immigrants from the 1920's as proof. Really!? I guess it's sorta like the Republican opposition to the Civil Rights movement resulting in blacks voting Democrat for five decades. Oh wait, it was the Democrats who fought against the Voting Rights Act etc. and Republicans who, wait...I'm all confused now. Who was it again?
I haven't read the piece as it's behind a pay wall but what do they say will happen if we do go down the open borders road, how will our goose fair then?
From what I gather they were talking about food rotting in the fields of California because of labor shortages. My question is don't we have PLENTY of illegals in California at the moment? If illegal labor is the key to farm labor shortages, farmers should be rolling in cheap labor. Plus I guess the WSJ is less concerned about Jerry Brown cutting off the farmer's water resulting in miles upon miles of unused farmland and thousands of bankrupt farmers. They must have missed that "farm crisis"!
I am sick to DEATH of these scare tactics! The Republican establishment can go straight to hell! I am NOT a Goddamn fool and I won't be played for a fool. The idea that hard working, law abiding Americans of any race or creed would want open borders is insane. Plus the idea that we will alienate Hispanics is absolute bullshit as well. I am at war with illegals picking my pocket and raping my country (both figuratively and literally) and my goal is to make damn sure THEY DON'T VOTE! So the argument is moot.
Now, a footnote. You're going to be hearing a lot about the 14th Amendment in the coming weeks. Let me be the first to tell you, THERE IS NO BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP under the law! It is an invention by leftist jurists in defiance of the Constitution. The authors of the Amendment addressed this very issue: "this will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons."
