Pandering Pelosi on Illegal Immigration

In the wild world of Nancy Pelosi, Enforcing our nation's immigration laws is "un American". I thought it might be unfair competition to Saturday Night Live to make such a statement, but the woman is actually serious. Fox News reports as follows.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently told a group of both legal and illegal immigrants and their families that enforcement of existing immigration laws, as currently practiced, is "un-American."

The speaker, condemning raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, referred to the immigrants she was addressing as "very, very patriotic."

"Who in this country would not want to change a policy of kicking in doors in the middle of the night and sending a parent away from their families?" Pelosi told a mostly Hispanic gathering at St. Anthony's Church in San Francisco.

It must be stopped....What value system is that? I think it's un-American. I think it's un-American."

A further indication of Pelosi's advanced dementia was her willingness to make her pandering statements in front of a live microphone and camera.

Someone needs to tell Pelosi that whatever she says in San Francisco is going to be heard in Peoria and beyond. Once someone gets you on camera, you may as well be speaking on national television.

Pelosi is cynically playing at American's heart strings. Getting arrested is never a pretty sight. Millions of lawbreakers have wives and children. I have seen arrests. It is not a pretty sight. But the responsibility for the trauma of a police raid for anything should rest upon the shoulders of the law breakers.

At first glance, illegal immigrants might elicit sympathy. Driven by economic need, they travel thousands of miles to do jobs unwanted by Americans. But are those jobs really unwanted? Or is the appraised value of such work being depressed to steer certain jobs away from native born citizens of our country? What about the impact in certain neighbourhoods on rental costs? Is illegal immigration really a victimless crime?

Pandering Democrats like Pelosi have an interest in importing new citizens who are likely to vote Democratic. Greedy businessmen are happy to depress wages to save a few bucks on wages. When they both get their way, the workers who have less to spend in a tight job market sit on their wallets. Then you read headlines about retail spending being down.

Most Americans are descended from immigrants. Very few people want to shut down immigration. The right to work in America and become a citizen should be a gift bestowed upon those deemed worthy by the American government on behalf of the American people. The solution to poverty in Mexico is to aid them in developing their economy.

Immigrants are by nature more aggressive and enterprising than those who stay home. Mexico and other developing nations should be developed further to provide opportunities that will make the young and restless want to stay there. It is possible for their economy to complement rather than compete with ours.

Nancy Pelosi is not content to take America's money, she is taking away America itself and handing it over to illegal immigrants. She wants to portray those who oppose her as bigoted and hard hearted. In her twisted world, defending our borders is un American. Discussing and combatting her ideas should according to her party be regulated by the "fairness" doctrine. Even as her party opposes military spending, she demands travel perks on military jets. Maybe she should have a non military plane at her disposal. She could name it after the "Fairness Doctrine." She could call it "Doctrine Air".

Unfortunately, defeating Pelosi at the polls might be an uphill battle. Her Congressional district is supportive of her ideas. But both she and her party have to face the American people every two years. The clock is ticking. Pelosi is being recorded. When the time comes, we will hit "Play back". And that will mean "pay back." Sphere: Related Content
