Video: Kirsten Gillibrand Calls the Term 'Chain Migration' a Racial Slur
With another deadline fast approaching, illegals are the hot-button topic of the day. Sensible people are proposing solutions and compromises to the problem, hoping to avoid another shutdown. Meanwhile, leftists are up to their usual habits. Namely, calling anyone who disagrees with them a brown-people-hating Hitler clone with no compassion.
That's what Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is doing:
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) appeared on "The View" Monday where she criticized President Donald Trump's approach to immigration and the use of the "racist slur" "chain migration."
"Do you agree with Nancy Pelosi when she says Trump wants to ‘Make America White Again' and that's what this is about?" Joy Behar asked, referring to comments the House Minority Leader (D., Calif.) made Friday.
"I think a lot of President Trump's rhetoric is racist. Let's be very clear: when someone uses the phrase chain migration … it is intentional in trying to demonize families, literally trying to demonize families and make it a racist slur," Gillibrand said.
Here we go again with the race card.
Chain migration is a loophole, plain and simple. Say a border-hopping buttmunch make it across the fence and evade the clutches of La Migra. He's now free to petition the government for his entire familia to pass "Go" and collect copious amounts of welfare payments. Can you see where that might be bad for business?
Race is entirely irrelevant when we're talking immigration law. If the trespasser were white, the story would be exactly the same. Should an Australian overstay his welcome, we'd promptly kick his kangaroo-loving ass back down under. Faster than he can say "a dingo ate my baby."
There's nothing even remotely racist about suggesting immigration loopholes are problems that could use some addressing. As the law stands, illegals have zero right to be here. Deport them.
Speaking of that:
