The part of illegal they don't understand


When Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank got word that federal immigration agents were in his district, risking their lives to uphold the law and protect the citizenry, he immediately sprang into action: He told them to stop.
Like liberal lawmakers in Colorado, Georgia, and other states where high-profile immigration raids have occurred recently, Congressman Frank was outraged that the rule of law was going to be inflicted on the innocent "undocumented workers" he represents.

"These aren't criminals," Frank said of the hundreds of aliens using forged federal documents (felony) to commit tax fraud (felony) and identity theft (felony) in order to evade immigration laws and remain in the US (felony, misdemeanor and violation of numerous civil statutes).

Story Continues

Below are the last couple paragraphs of the story.

The answers are obvious. There are real costs to real Americans of refusing to enforce immigration laws. There are also real costs to the nations these illegals are fleeing. If your life is so lousy that you'd rather work in an American sweatshop than in your own country, your country must really, really suck.

So why not stay there and fight for a better future? Why not work as hard to create jobs back home as you do to steal jobs here? If illegal immigrants truly are the ambitious, caring, community-minded folk their advocates insist, aren't they needed more in the backwards ratholes of Central and South America?

I say it's time for Americans to sacrifice for the good of the world. We'll keep our xenophobic, nationalistic, Neanderthal ways, and the rest of the world can enjoy the immigration lawlessness and open borders liberals support.

I'm sure Congressman Frank will be happy to lead the way.
