Here we go again. The GOP got a drubbing on Election Day. But instead of talking about the poisonous effects of identity politics, economic illiteracy, the government school monopoly, and the Right’s woeful competitive disadvantage in mainstream American culture, the usual pandering suspects — led by GOP Sen. Lindsey Grahamanesty — have resurrected illegal alien amnesty-mania.
My work on illegal immigration, border security, and national security began as an editorial writer at the Los Angeles Daily News in 1992, where I first bore witness to the Balkanization wrought by open-borders multiculturalists. Invasion, published in 2002, documented how systematically lax enforcement of our immigration laws combined with suicidal political correctness paved the way for the September 11 terrorist attacks.
GOP “moderates” and strategists assume that waving the magic amnesty wand and opening up the welfare/entitlement state to generations of illegal immigrants will translate into electoral gains for the party. They’re deluded. They pretend amnesty will come at no cost to legal immigrants and native-born Americans. They pretend they can “secure the border first” by making the same empty, token gestures that have left our borders a bloody joke for decades.
The promise of “securing the border first” is a Kabuki compromise.
These GOP amnesty-peddlers are as deluded now as they were in 2007 when Bush/McCain/Kennedy spearheaded a failed amnesty campaign. They’ve learned nothing.
How about clearing naturalization application backlogs instead of expanding illegal alien benefits? How about tracking and deporting violent illegal alien criminals instead of handing out driver’s licenses to illegal aliens? How about streamlining the employee citizenship verification process for businesses (E-verify) and fixing outdated visa tracking databases instead of indiscriminately expanding temporary visa and guest worker programs?
Let’s drop the semantic games.
