Rules. They exist for a reason. Don’t run into the street, you’ll be hit by a car. Don’t play with matches, you’ll get burned. Don’t salsa over the border, you’ll get frozen by ICE. Immigration laws exist to protect the American people. Especially from crime-prone baddy amigos. But New York officials think they’re too divine for such rules (see Bill de Blasio Bashes Americans’ Rights for Limiting HIS Power).
Now, Gov. Andrew Cuomo is pardoning illegals, role-playing as God. Possibly even making his secretary play a helpless alien damsel in a short dress (see Female Reporter Questions Andrew Cuomo on Harassment. His Response is Unreal…).
But the worst part? His reasoning:
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) on Wednesday pardoned 61 people, including some who faced immigration enforcement actions because of prior criminal charges.
Cuomo pardoned 18 immigrants who had committed low-level offenses, saying his pardon was based on their rehabilitation efforts. Cuomo blasted President Trump‘s hard-line immigration efforts in the process.
“While the federal government continues to target immigrants and threatens to tear families apart with deportation, these actions take a critical step toward a more just, more fair and more compassionate New York,” Cuomo said in a statement.
Prior to Wednesday’s pardons, Cuomo had issued seven pardons for immigrants in an effort to postpone their deportation, The New York Times reported.
Methinks averting justice is far from just. Excusing criminals just because they shimmied over the border with little Juan in tow is still sidestepping the law. It’s Cuomo’s job to ensure the rights of American peoples, to uphold the law. Not prance around in a virtue crown woven of daisies picked by illegals from Starbucks’ flower gardens.
Yes, we should deport illegal immigrants. If you find such a notion triggering, too bad. More on that below.
