If it wasn’t clear before, it should be clear now: There is NO opportunity for a bipartisan solution when it comes to border control. Yes, there are enough mealy-mouthed Republicans in Congress to prevent the president from getting what he wants – i.e., the wall and REAL security – but the Democrats, instead of taking advantage of a situation in which they could potentially get together with the corporate slaves of the GOP and pass some kind of amnesty package for Dreamers, are making the politically disastrous decision to go even FURTHER left on the border!
We’re not in the business of advising Democrats on what they should do to get what they want, but damn, how stupid can you get and still win elections?
Then again, if there are still Republicans on Capitol Hill who missed the message voters sent when they elected Donald Trump, we guess it’s inevitable that Democrats would whiff as well. We don’t even want to KNOW what kinds of powerful pro-illegal immigration lobbyists there are working behind the scenes in Washington. They must have a stranglehold on lawmakers, though, because we’ve never seen so many Americans make their voice so clear without seeing one iota’s worth of action from our Congress.
We suppose we should be grateful that Democrats are getting even more extreme on the border, because this only serves to marginalize their party even further, taking them one more step towards becoming token opposition on the national stage. Even so, it disturbs us to see mainstream Democrats – some of them in line to challenge for the nomination in 2020 – openly advocate for ridiculous propositions like abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement. You can say this rhetoric is too out there to win votes, but you really never know…especially when you have the mainstream media carrying water for an agenda.
“Based on the last week, Democrats apparently want to campaign on open borders, mass migration, & abolishing ICE,” said Sen. Tom Cotton on Twitter. “Give them points for honesty. Let’s vote.”
This is the approach we’d like to take, but we’ve seen Democrats grab the cultural zeitgeist too many times to rest easy. And that’s not even getting into whatever kind of voter fraud scheme they’ve got going on in Southern California, where illegal immigrants are basically citizens in everything but name.
Over the past couple of weeks, everyone from New York candidate for governor Cynthia Nixon to 2020 presidential hopeful Kamala Harris has advocated for getting rid of ICE. Mainstream, senior Democrats (and the ACLU) have argued that we should go back to catch-and-release at the border, which is another way of saying, let’s not enforce the law at all. And we’ve all seen what’s happening out in Cali, where the Democrats would rather go to war with the Trump administration than deport a single illegal alien.
It is our hope that this extreme, open-borders policy comes back to bite Democrats, bigly. We just hope it doesn’t bite the rest of us first…
