Every week on Monday morning the Watcher’s Council and their invited special guests weigh in with short takes on a major issue of the day.
This week’s question: Do you consider illegal migration to America a problem, and if so, what would you do about the estimated 11 million illegal aliens already here?
Seraphic Secret was invited to participate in this forum. Here’s our response:
Without territorial integrity, a nation has no claim to nationhood.
There is no law that guarantees a state’s continued existence. In fact, world history is littered with fallen nations and dead languages. Not many Etruscan speakers out there. The Roman empire committed cultural suicide through a combination of negative birth rate — kids are a major buzz-kill when there’s an orgy to attend — debt, inflation, civic and government corruption, broken borders through which barbarians penetrated, and most important: a loss of belief in the purpose of their society.
The left encourages debt, inflation, and codifies civic and government corruption through lawless executive orders such as The Dream Act—notice they are no longer illegal immigrants, they are dreamers.
The left does not give birth to enough children to add new voters to the Democrat rolls and perpetuate their ideology. Thus, they recruit new leftists by enabling and encouraging illegal immigration. The left rejects American borders in favor of a utopian borderless world. This is the mission and strategy of the left, to impose a statist-globalism on an America whose exceptionalism they not only reject but despise.
The left claims that the 11 million illegal immigrants — I have no idea if this number is accurate and neither does anyone else — must be treated fairly and humanely. How can anyone argue with that?
But here’s my question: What about the 11 million — just making up a number here — law abiding folks who have filled out mountains of paperwork and now patiently stand on line, for years and years, in order to immigrate legally to America? Is it fair to them that America gives lawless immigrants, non-citizens — who include Islamist terrorists, gang bangers and narcotics criminals — preferential treatment and the privileges of citizenship?
If you are standing in line for a movie do you just smile with Zen serenity when someone jumps ahead of you because, well, they got tired of waiting in the back of the line?
Solution: 1) Strict border enforcement and 2) Send all illegals immigrants — whoops, I mean dreamers — to blue states and let the oh-so-tolerant liberal-progressives deal with the consequences of their radical policies.
