Virtually everyone knows America has a big illegal immigration problem. But we also have a legal immigration problem: Current U.S. immigration policy is not serving the best interests of America. Is there a way to protect American citizens and still welcome newcomers to our shores? Reihan Salam offers an insightful solution.
Historically, Democrats supported strong borders because they knew American workers could never compete with illegal immigrants. Now, they regularly support “open borders.” So why the drastic change? Tucker Carlson, host of Tucker Carlson Tonight, explains.
The common narrative today is that after decades of globalism, hard-hearted Americans now seek to close the nation’s borders to new immigrants. But the truth is that the United States maintains the most generous immigration policies in the world. However, as CRTV host and author of “Invasion” and “Sold Out” Michelle Malkin explains, a few ill-conceived immigration policies are threatening to destroy the American Dream for Americans and aspiring Americans alike.
An discussion/argument I keep hearing goes like this:
Obama is a hardcore leftist, thus all his failed policies fail on purpose in order to sow chaos and create an emergency that, according to Obama—and every two-bit banana republic El Presidente—demands forceful action. In short: what seems to be managerial ineptitude is a cover for further power grabs.
The other side of the argument is that Obama and his army of bureaucrats are in over their heads, a Praetorian guard of Marxist ideologues who wallow in classroom theory, but have zero experience in the real world of cause and effect.
This either/or argument misses the larger truth.
On Friday, President Obama announced his plan to halt deportations of illegal US residents who were brought to the country as children. The plan will be implemented via Executive Order.
Can President Obama bypass Congress and issue an Executive Order for Amnesty? A constitutional law professor says, “No.”
Of course, Obama is just trolling for votes. But ask yourselves, if President Obama gets away with this executive order why not the next one and the next one and the next one.
Hey, before you know it they’ll be telling us what sodas we can and cannot drink, what bags we may use to carry our groceries, and yeah, I know it sounds crazy but they’ll even be telling us how to go to the bathroom.
