Lost in the recriminations on the Right over the Heritage Foundation scoring of Amnesty 2013 was any notion that conservatism is deeper than a tally of whom receives what in the federally sponsored Great Candy Giveaway. The argument has descended to how the government booty is divided. It is a disgusting spectacle that long ago shed any concern for respect of law, care for custom or fidelity to America.

The folly at the heart of  Marco Rubio’s march to electoral oblivion is that the legislation he and the Gang are crafting makes promises to foreign nationals today based on the material good the world’s impoverished can potentially provide to us tomorrow.

For the Rubio led faction of the Gang the tradeoff for commercializing American citizenship involves gaining the respect of  the media wing of the Democratic Party (New York Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS et al.) in the hope they will stop calling Republicans racists. They have disguised their naivety and cowardice by misdirecting our attention to number games about solvency and growth.

For the Chuck Schumer side the payoff is more ready made Democrat voters who will help them expand the welfare state. For Democrats, amnesty does not represent a debasement of the value of American citizenship. To them half the current electorate is an international embarrassment of gun nuts, misguided Constitutionalists and fundamentalist Christians — people so steeped in bigotry their votes shouldn’t count anyway.  The typical Progressive politician believes a citizen is someone whose vote for the Democratic candidate or ballot proposition can be relied upon — several times on the same day, under fraudulent identities, if necessary.

The cavalier regard for American citizenship held in the highest circles of our polity only encourages more lawbreaking and mischief:  New York City is considering granting the franchise to non-citizens.

If, as in 1986, amnesty is granted the world’s poor will realize they have American lawmakers agitating on their behalf. That will lead to another wave of illegal migration and another amnesty to “reform” the errors in this one. Soon, if this farce continues, the Congressmen voting on future amnesties won’t be citizens themselves.

We can build a double-layered, biometrically-proofed, drone-monitored wall around the United States but it will not matter so long as we are led by men and women who don’t see anything worth defending inside it.
