Shocked (SHOCKED, we say!) by a report that the Trump administration is sending elite SWAT-like Border Patrol units into sanctuary cities to help ICE officials arrest and deport illegal aliens, a panel of bleeding heart liberals on MSNBC spent Saturday evening telling us why enforcing the law is synonymous with “cruelty.”
“There’s a new threat emerging for sanctuary cities as reported when we look at the L.A. Times on the front page,” lamented host Richard Liu. “They’re reporting that law enforcement officials in the city are pushing back against new ICE plans to deploy additional resources and agents to areas deemed sanctuaries to undocumented immigrants. So part of this is when we look at Nevada, when we look at the high Latino-American voting bloc, what this means.”
Guest Danielle Moodie-Mills said the mere idea of sending in additional officers to enforce federal law was simply awful.
“I think that it means that this administration is doing anything that it can to terrorize the Latinx community, right?” she said. “And it is using punitive punishments on states like California or New York – just ending global entry because of the sanctuary rules that are here. And so we need to be paying attention to what this President is doing and what parameters there are that need to be put in place in states to protect this community that is under siege.”
Yes, let’s discuss what can be done to protect this community…of lawbreakers. This community of people…who by all rights should not be in the United States.
Also, really? People are still using the term “Latinx?”
Attorney Midwin Charles then jumped in with some absurd commentary about localized power.
“For a long time, the Republican party always stood for states’ rights,” she said. “I mean, that was sort of hallmark conservative values that the states had rights, and the federal government should not intrude upon them. Here you have with this administration the complete opposite.
“I’m going to go a little bit step further and say that this isn’t just to terrorize the Latino communities,” she continued. “It is also for Trump to score political points with his base because cruelty is the point. The more he can show that he is cruel against immigrants of color — also very important to point out because you never see any talk of illegal immigrants from Europe or anything like that. It’s the brown immigrants.”
Right, because we have such a problem with Norwegian immigrants sneaking over on boats. The only possible explanation for focusing on Hispanic immigrants is racism; surely it has nothing to do with that big, gaping border on our southern side.
By the way, when are American Latinos going to stand up and tell the phonies in the Democratic Party to stop conflating their community with illegal aliens?
