What makes a person an American? According to the Washington Post, a Costco card. Middle finger to laws. Who wants those? Surely not illegals or murderers (see MS-13 Gang Members Busted for Gruesome Murders. Guess How Many are Legal Citizens…). Costco cards should replace all forms of paperwork. Sharpened, they also make good weaponry.
Leftists are up in limp-noodle arms over Trump’s latest immigration decision. An example:
Oscar Cortez feels like he has an ordinary American life. He carries a Costco card. He roots for the Boston Red Sox. And five days a week, he rises before dawn, pulls on four shirts and two pairs of pants, and ventures into the frigid air to work as a plumber, a good job that pays for his Maryland townhouse and his daughters’ college fund.
Again, what constitutes an American life? Liking baseball and stuffing oneself with apple pie apparently. Buying things in bulk. Is it idiotic to become a legal resident instead of staying on temporary status for 17 years? These are the questions.
The U.S. government opened the door to this life in 2001 when they granted Cortez and about 200,000 other migrants from El Salvador Temporary Protected Status (TPS), a provisional relief from deportation that has allowed them to work legally in the United States for 17 years. On Monday, according to multiple people briefed on the plans, the federal government will take it away.
Salvadorans are the largest group with the status, and the impact of taking it away would be wide-ranging — from Washington to Los Angeles and in the Central American nation itself. Individuals will have 18 months to leave or seek other means to obtain lawful residency, those knowledgeable about the decision said.
For a minute I thought this meant ICE would kick these peeps out with an American cowboy boot. That’s what WaPo wanted me to believe. But this dull hombre had 17 years to pursue citizenship. Now he has an additional 18 months to get his non-American “American” life sorted out. Excuses?
There was nothing temporary about Temporary Protected Status visas. Past administrations believed “temporary” is as relative as feminist beauty standards. Trump says no more. This amigo should put time toward becoming a real American. Instead of watching the Red Sox and spending three hours at Costco every weekend.
While we’re on the subject, a lot of border-crossing hombres are illegals. They making a better living than those with real American lives. Proof:
