DREAM Propaganda

The ruling political elites want amnesty for their maids and they are using every crying mother in Latin America to guilt Americans into supporting it.

The House is our Alamo.

That is why Representative Steve King’s bracing — not racist, not bigoted — language yesterday was needed.  Americans don’t want to be seen as unfair or unfeeling towards the world’s poor. That is why the rule of law side loses the propaganda wars when it comes to immigration.

Strand by strand Democrats have been knotting the noose by which they will hang the Republican Party on the rafters of public opinion. Separated families (tears). Genius students (applause). Noble laborers (empathetic nod). Only cold blooded, racist Republicans stand between these morally superior, intellectually gifted, workaholic huddled masses yearning to breathe free and American citizenship.

Mr. King’s  comments about the relative physiques of drug mules and valedictorians may have been less than tactful but someone in the People’s House needed to pop the bubble of gaseous rhetoric coming from the open borders mob. We know, but have been cowed into not discussing publicly, that:

  • About three-fourths of illegal immigrants have no eductions beyond high school.
  • A 2007 study by the Heritage Foundation estimated that households headed by immigrants without a high school education received $19,588 more in direct and indirect benefits than they paid in taxes each year.
  • 59 percent of households headed by immigrants who have not graduated high school access one or more welfare programs, and 70 percent have no federal income tax liability.
  • Not all illegal aliens are law-abiding, minding-my-own-business Libertarian hipsters. There are thousands of cases like Cesar Benitez and Juan Lozano Ortega and Edgar Derardo Guzman.

The issue is not whether Congressman King accurately described the leg muscles of illegal immigrants — they can all have calves like Olive Oyl for all it matters — but what kind of country we will have in 10 or 20 years. America is all stocked up on violent, sub-literate, low-skilled labor. It was high time one of our representatives told the no borders crowd to peddle their dreams of a super-sized class of pauperized, government dependent Americans somewhere else.
