Leftists and conservatives are always going back and forth over the scourge of illegal immigration. The left wants to open the border to Mexico and welcome every
potential voter Mexicano into the US with open arms. The rest of us would rather pass on that.
The latest in the immigration debate? Nine illegals died from the heat while crossing over in the trailer of a semi. Leftists were quick to blame conservatives for the whole thing. Yes, really.
On Monday, NBC’s Today shamefully exploited the deaths of illegal immigrants smuggled into the U.S. to attack the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress. After reporting on how 39 people were found in the back of tractor trailer in San Antonio, Texas, nine of whom died due to the extreme 100-degree heat, correspondent Gabe Gutierrez declared: “Some blame the current political climate.”
A soundbite followed of left-wing illegal immigration activist Jonathan Ryan of the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, ranting: “The harsh rhetoric of today is exactly what is responsible for tragedies like what happened in San Antonio.” Gutierrez noted: “But human trafficking has been big business for decades….Last year, Homeland Security officials investigated more than 2,000 cases of human trafficking, making nearly 3,000 criminal arrests.”
Pardon me for a moment.
Methinks Jonathan Ryan’s judgment is askew. He’d have to perform a mental decathlon to rationalize Trump and conservatives as being at fault. In reality, the culprit in the illegals’ deaths is very clear. It’s the illegals themselves. They were the ones who crammed themselves into an unventilated semi trailer in the middle of July. While in the process of committing a crime. You’ll have to forgive me for not being able to summon up the waterworks.
What exactly is “harsh” about the rhetoric, anyway? These illegals are entering the country to suckle at the taxpayers’ teats. While also bringing with them a pile of murder and rape. Yet, somehow, we’re the bad guys?
When a group of people is deceiving and manipulating the good will of the United States, don’t be surprised when the citizens aren’t too eager to roll out the red carpet.
It’s not a good thing when people die. But, it’s important to remember those people died while doing criminal stuff. Leftists can blame this on conservatives or climate change (I’m surprised they never brought that up) all they want. But, all the illegals had to do was stay on their side of the border and they’d still be alive to munch on churros and watch soccer.
Perhaps if the left is concerned with the safety of immigrants, they should enact policies to protect them from the hazards that come with crossing illegally. A nice big wall would do a good job of keeping them out of harms way.
While we’re on the subject.
