In a speech to a group of (what Democrats insist on calling) Latinx leaders this weekend, Sen. Bernie Sanders said that if he were elected president, he would put an end to deportations of illegal immigrants altogether.
“We’re going to end the ICE raids which are terrorizing communities all across this country,” said the socialist senator from Vermont. “We are going to impose a moratorium on deportations. There are some things that a president can do with executive orders.”
Like completely abandon the law of the United States!
Simply refusing to enforce the law, though, is not enough when it comes to illegal aliens. Sanders also promised that his big ideas for universal healthcare and free college tuition would indeed cover anyone and everyone – including those who don’t belong in the United States.
“Let me also say something of which I have gotten into trouble and people will criticize me for,” said Sanders. “I am, as some of you know, supportive of a Medicare for All single-payer system and that means that everybody in the country has health care, including the undocumented. And mark my words: You’ll see 30-second ads attacking me for that. And then you’ll see another set of 30-second ads because when I say I want to make public colleges and universities tuition-free, that also includes the undocumented.”
Gee, Bernie, why would anyone attack you for using taxpayer money to fund an education-and-healthcare giveaway to people WHO SHOULDN’T BE IN THE DAMN COUNTRY?
Rampant illegal immigration is already driving down the wages of American workers, displacing those on the lower rungs of the labor industry, and costing taxpayers a fortune. The last thing we need is to stop deportations. The second-to-last thing we need is to start providing these aliens with free this and free that – programs that already come with a price tag in the high trillions. Bad enough that we should consider giving all this free stuff to American citizens; unthinkable that we should expand these socialist programs to illegal immigrants.
If America becomes the land of unrestrained immigration and a basket of free prizes for everyone who comes here, then America is finished as a country. Anyone with a lick of common sense can see that. Hopefully, that describes the majority of voters.
