As law-abiding American patriots, we are constantly oppressed by an overbearing federal government, and in many locations, an officious state government. Every aspect of our lives is governed by a tax, a regulation, or red tape. Yet, when it comes to illegal aliens, they are treated like higher beings. They are regarded as righteous pioneers who are stymied by our refusal to open up the welfare spigot and let them vote Democrat, so they can elect more politicians who impose tyranny on the rest of us.
Yesterday, the full House Judiciary Committee held a hearing on immigration reform. Watching the hearing, one would come away with the impression that we were on trial for not treating the illegals properly. Here is an excerpt from radical liberal John Conyers’s opening statement:
“I hope no one uses the term ‘illegal immigrants’ here today. Our citizens are not…the people in this country are not illegal, they are out of status, they are new Americans that are immigrants, and I think that we can forge a path to citizenship that will be able to pass muster. We’ve got senatorial bipartisan support working very nicely thus far.”
Wow – just wow.
Then a couple minutes later, a group of illegals who were attending the meeting stood up and shouted “undocumented and unafraid.”
Folks, we’re supposed to believe that Congress is serious about enforcing the laws and preventing another amnesty when illegals can brazenly attend an immigration hearing in the heart of the Capitol and disrupt a hearing!
Just this week I had to live in mortal fear of being pulled over by a cop for not reregistering my car in a new state. Between the state inspection (which is another form of crony capitalism) and the taxes and fees, I lost $650. Yet, these people can break into our country, drop anchor babies, collect welfare benefits, and brazenly demand amnesty during a congressional hearing.
Welcome to absurdistan.
