Lawlessness is Not Love

Ted_Cruz_illegal_immigrationWhen you have “Republicans” who will sink to this level of tripe to justify their values sellout, we are truly in desperate need of some distinction between the Republican and Democrat Parties.

Said Jeb Bush this weekend of illegal aliens:

“Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love, it’s an act of commitment to your family.”

Let us be clear. They broke the law. They violated our sovereign borders. They defied our laws in staying here with no citizenship and no legal permission

Ever heard of trespassing?

How about if we have a group of squatters who break into your garage or shed or (if you are well enough off) your summer home. Do you think you’ll file trespassing charges and remove them from a place where they broke the law to enter and have no legal right to be…or will you just say, “Aw, it was an act of love,” and let them say?

Yeah, we know the answer to that one.

So why do you have less protectionist instinct toward your country–the place where you and your grandchildren live, the place that provides your freedom and prosperity?

Jeb Bush (and some other “Republicans”) desperately need to take some lessons and learn something from Ted Cruz.


From the Daily Caller:

“There’s no doubt that immigrants come to this country because they are seeking a better world, they are seeking the American dream and they’re seeking a better life for their kids,” Cruz said. “And all of that is positive and beneficial. What isn’t positive and beneficial is breaking the law to do so.”

“In my view, we need to be a nation that welcomes and celebrates legal immigrants,” the senator continued. “People who follow the rules and come here according to the law. We’re a nation of immigrants, we need to celebrate that. But at the same time, rule of law matters. And if you look at any sovereign nation, securing your border is critically important.”

“And I’ll tell you one of the big reasons has to do with just the humanity of it,” Cruz explained. “If you come down to Texas and you see the conditions where — you see photographs that are heartbreaking, of bodies of women and children left abandoned in the desert, because they entrust themselves to transnational global criminal cartels who smuggle them in, assault them and leave them to die.”

“This is not a humane system,” the senator asserted, “and we need to solve the problems. Secure the borders, and then improve and streamline legal immigration so people can come to America consistent with the rule of law.”

I couldn’t agree more.
