Should Speaker of the House Pelosi register as a foreign agent?
Speaker of the House Pelosi (on or close to March 20, 2009), speaking to a group of Mexicans with American citizenship (that is, those who place their ethnic identity above their citizenship):
"Who in our 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? It must be stopped.
"What value system is that? I think it's un-American."
So if I'm a bank robber, a rapist, an MS13 honcho, Bernie Madoff--or any other kind of crook, in Congresswoman Pelosi's book we can't arrest them as long as they have a domestic partner and/or children living with them.
Then what? We have to wait until the domestic partner and/or children leave or die before we can arrest the crook?
Of course she meant illegal aliens, not other kinds of criminals. So you could claim I'm taking her out of context. But she didn't qualify her statement when she made it--I'm quoting her verbatim. If you don't want to be taken out of context, put the context into what you say.
And what if she did say what she was doubtless thinking? That once an illegal alien gets into this country and settles down with a domestic partner and/or children, they're home free? That's a big fat carrot to dangle in front of the hundreds of millions of people around the world who'd like to move to America.
Of course ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) has stated repeatedly that they're looking for illegal aliens who have comitted felonies, and only sweeping up others in the process of doing so. Pelosi must either think ICE is lying--or that it's OK to be a felon as long as you're an illegal immigrant.
I might feel differently if Pelosi advocated, at the same time, a universal ID system coupled with e-Verify. Or something else to help us control and keep track of who's wandering around within our borders. Do I have to point out that the perpetrators of 9/11 were all illegal aliens? [Some were here on visas but had gotten them under false pretenses, making them illegals as well.]
Every previous amnesty--and there have been several, most recently in 1986--has triggered a tidal wave of illegal immigration across our borders. Pelosi isn't an idiot, so this must be OK with her.
I'm glad I took Spanish in school instead of French, like the other college-bound kids did. Spanish has already become the accepted second language of California--to the extent that people who only speak Spanish can live here comfortably.
Of course that's fine with Pelosi and her ilk, because they show no respect for the culture that's being displaced by this Hispanic tidal wave. I say "displaced" because when an invasive population gets large enough to support not having to learn the host country's language, they don't assimilate, and their children only do so partially (enormous school dropout rates for the kids of illegals from Mexico and parts south).
The long-term consequence of Pelosi's advocacy is an American Quebec. Talk to the Canadians about how that's worked out for them.
