Over the past week, the number of protests has been staggering, the obstructionism by the Senate has been frustrating, and the rulings by the Ninth Circuit Court has been puzzling as well as being as far removed from all common sense as well as the United States legal code.
All of these people need to be members of the WAH! Party tm and be issued their diaper pins.
The protests have pretty well been centered around the issue of illegal immigration as well as allowing refugees from the Middle East into this country that cannot be vetted or checked for terrorist inclinations. The Ninth Circuit Court basically gave legal standing in the courts to this last group even though they are not citizens of this country.
My take on this as well as many others is that the rulings were politically motivated, designed to delegitimize President Trump’s administration and Presidency. What is most disturbing is that these people do not seem to understand that the safety and security of this country is needed to insure that they would continue to have the rights and privileges of United States’ citizens to voice their opinions. To allow unfettered immigration to this country is akin to suicide. Ronald Reagan stated:
“A nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation.” ― Ronald Reagan
This past week, ICE has been rounding up illegal immigrants with criminal records for deportation. While some of the arrests have been heartbreaking, let’s remember the following:
Would you want to have any of these people living next to you much less in the same city as you and your family? Would you want an immigrant that has not been vetted living next to you? Considering the track record of illegal immigrants committing violent and sometimes horrific crimes, it is simply not worth the risk to using an “open border” policy. Considering what has happened in Germany (and in the United States as well) with their policy of allowing virtually all refugees into their country, is it moral to sacrifice your own citizens to to prove some philosophical or political point? To whit:
Obviously, there will be some terrorists posing as immigrants that will slip through the cracks, but that is absolutely no excuse not to try and determine who is a legitimate immigrant, refugee, or student, and who is not. Which makes the Ninth Circuit Court’s decision even more egregious than what I originally thought –
“One of these days the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals may declare the Constitution unconstitutional” – Thomas Sowell, 2003
Are we a nation of laws, or are we a nation of personal whims and feelings fueled by insane politics? Once we go down that road, this country is finished.
