Senate committee defeats amendment for border security before amnesty for illegal immigrants. Let me be blunt - if we don’t control the border, why in the world does it matter what else is in our immigration policy? Every other nation on the planet secures its borders, what makes it so immoral for us to do the same? I understand with a TranZi would oppose border control, but it’s stunning that GOP Senators would, even though it’s not a popular stance.
What drives my objection to large scale immigration isn’t really the immigrants but out own oikophobes who do all they can to prevent assimilation. We can see how this worked out in Boston, where the bombers had no American friends and despised the USA even while living off American largesse. Why shouldn’t immigrants acquire that attitude if we will pay them while telling them how lucky we are they are here? Or telling them it can be racist to be pro-American or that our own national history is unimportant or our dominant religions are extremism.
