Earned The Right To Be Citizens By Lawbreaking- Today’s Quote

It is also, frankly, in my judgment, a matter of who we are as Americans… to offer the opportunity to those who want to be citizens, who’ve earned the right to be citizens, who are present in this country–many of whom came here as children–to have the opportunity that we all have to try to become American citizens…

An earned path to citizenship for those currently present in this country is a matter of, in my view, homeland security to encourage people to come out from the shadows, to be accountable, to participate in the American experience, the American society,” he said.

Andrew’s Note:  Is it just me, or does it seem like an bad idea when the senior official responsible for border security thinks that all you have to do to earn the “right to be citizens” is break our laws by sneaking past his thousands of border guards.  That’s almost as bad as having a Secretary of Defense who opposes our nuclear deterrent or an Attorney General who refuses to prosecute election crimes on the basis that they were perpetrated by “my people.”

A National Security Issue – Today’s Quote

I write about things that are important for us as Americans. I’m concerned about al-Qaeda sneaking across the border with the illegal immigrants that are using the coyotes to get across the border. And that’s not a Democrat or Republican issue, that’s a national security issue.

19th Century Rules – Today’s Quote

You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pre-text, It is serious in terms of sort of the modern manner with which nations are going to resolve problems… President Obama wants to emphasize to the Russians that there are a right set of choices that can still be made to address any concerns they have about Crimea, about their citizens, but you don’t choose to invade a country in order to do that.

Andrew’s Note:  Watch out Putin…there may be a harshly worded letter in your future but the good news is that your 19th century aggression could only be countered by an early 20th century (size) force once we reduce our manpower to pre-WWII levels.

The Party’s Over? Does Immigration Reform Make Sense?

Pretend you’re in high school for a minute and let’s have a party.  Let’s invite our friends and the kids our age in the neighborhood.  We’re going to be careful though and just invite people we know are level headed and won’t make trouble because we don’t want any police calls to the house.  Also, we have to limit the number of party goers so that we have enough bratwursts, beverages and party favors for everyone.

Unfortunately, because we’re having the party in our backyard it’s just too easy for party crashers to waltz in and help themselves to our limited number of bratwursts, beverages and party favors so let’s get together a group, oh let’s say a gang of eight of our friends to develop a plan for dealing with the party crashers.

Our little gang of eight friends that we’ll let all the party crashers stay in exchange for a promise that they won’t break any more rules in the future (just because they broke rules to crash the party doesn’t mean they won’t follow our other party rules now that they’re here, right?) and an agreement that we’ll really, truly secure the property to keep any additional party crashers from coming in at some point in the near future (at this point all the party crashers get on their cell phones and tell their buddies not to wait and crash the party before it’s too late).
