ILLEGAL ALIENS, LEGAL DRIVERS

It’s official. The Democrat-controlled Albany government has turned a blind eye to federal law by allowing illegal aliens to get driver’s licenses in New York State. Of course, Albany Democrats don’t call illegal aliens what they are; instead, they use the progressive euphemism “undocumented people.” You see how this works? The slogan goes, “No human is illegal.” True, humans are not illegal, but they can do illegal things, like breaking our immigration laws. That’s why we have laws in the first place, to protect our citizens, property and institutions.

Governor Cuomo supports this affront to New York’s citizens and to every immigrant who jumped through the proper hoops to get here legally. Cuomo, may be the state’s chief law enforcement officer, but he has abandoned that responsibility in the pursuit of new voters.

Cuomo expressed worry that the federal government might use the database created to track illegals, saying, “Why give Trump a list of undocumented immigrants?” Clearly, he does not intend to enforce federal law; he will obstruct it, thereby encouraging more illegal immigration.

Meanwhile Letitia James, State Attorney General, will continue to contravene federal immigration law, saying, “The legislation (the law granting illegal aliens driver’s licenses) is well-crafted and contains ample protections for those who apply for driver’s licenses.” Translation: we’ll gum up the works to prevent federal law enforcement from doing its job.

Senate and Assembly Democrats delivered 33-29 and 86-47 majorities to pass this monstrosity over the votes of Republicans. Senate Majority leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, with her fingers crossed behind her back, said, “By passing this needed legislation, we are growing our economy while at the same time making our roads safer.” She blathered on, “This is the right step forward for New York State as we continue to advocate for comprehensive immigration reform on the federal level.”

Let’s take these silly, specious arguments seriously for a moment. Illegal aliens do not help grow the economy; they are a drain on it. Does anyone seriously believe that physicians, software engineers and various Ph.D.’s are scampering across our southern border? No, we are getting low-skilled, poorly educated people who eat public resources and our tax dollars. And does merely getting a driver’s license make a driver safe? When Ms. Cousins says she is “advocating for comprehensive immigration reform,” she really means: I want more law-breaking and border crashing; I want a giant flashing neon sign on our southern border screaming ILLEGAL ALIENS WELCOME, COME ON IN!

I have a question. Are Cuomo and company fools or liars? I think they’re both. They are sure we’re fools, but we are not. New York’s taxpayers are voting with their feet, and the population drain continues.

SANCTUARY DENIED

I got a kick out of President Trump floating the idea of releasing recently captured illegal aliens into sanctuary cities. Naturally, Democrats and their allies in the media lost what’s left of their minds. Here’s the headline from USA Today: “Report: White House wanted to release immigrants into sanctuary cities to punish Democrats.”

The link to the story follows:

Punish Democrats? Are you kidding? This is a gift, an inner city revitalization plan on steroids. Remember what Democrats have been telling us. There is no crisis on the southern border…so the number of illegals must be a mere trickle. No big deal for any city to handle, sanctuary or otherwise. Illegals commit less crime than Americans, making their cities safer. The more illegal aliens, the lower the crime rate, and the safer the city, right? (Just ignore the teensy matter of crossing the border illegally.) Also, according to Democrats, illegals boost the economy. They will not be a drain on local governments by gobbling up social services; quite the contrary, they will rev the economy into overdrive. So, bring on the border hoppers! The more the merrier, because more illegals means more economic growth. Illegals, who are just looking for a better life, will do the jobs lazy and stupid Americans won’t do. And since diversity is our strength, more illegal border crossers means more diversity and, naturally, stronger communities. Besides – and never ever forget this, you Trumpers – the sanctuary city crowd are far better people than you!

I don’t understand why it took President Trump to come up with this idea. Given all of the benefits that under-educated foreign lawbreakers bring to a community, you would have thought Pelosi, Cuomo, et. al. would have thought of it first. But no, their heads are exploding, and the propaganda arm of the Democrat party -the news media – falls right in line.

Lying hypocrites? You bet.
