The most important question of last night’s debate:
Lieutenant, give us an idea of what it is you see, and then what it is you are worried about?
J. ROGERS: Well, we’re overwhelmed in the street. I mean, just the crimes are getting more violent. They’re out of control. We can’t communicate with these immigrants. My concern is these illegal immigrants get here, you know — what makes you think that they’re going to follow any of these rules put in place?
They’re not. Either you can build all the fences you want. If you don’t man them, they’re going to go over them, they’re going to go under them. They’re still going to get in here.
What are you going to do with the illegal immigrants that are already here? How are you going to handle that problem? There’s millions of them.
The opportunities I’ve had to deal with the situation — you call INS; they won’t even come down and talk to you. They’re just understaffed, undermanned. What are you going to do about that?
CAMERON: So we’re going to spin this one back to both John McCain and Rudy Giuliani and ask the lieutenant’s question: How can you not call it amnesty?
Yes, spin away Cameron. The officer said law enforcement and ICE are overwhelmed with immigrants and asked what are we going to do with the ones already here? Watch as the media’s top three GOP darlings eagerly talk about anything but the officer’s call for reinforcement and leadership:
Guiliani blathers about IDs. Promises to secure the border. Never says what to do with the invaders already here. Can we assume he wants to issue them all IDs? How that will address the threat they pose to our country? What will we do if they refuse to carry the IDs? And by the way, Earth to Rudy…most of the rest of the country doesn’t want to be anything like New York City.
McCain blathers about his shamnesty’s toothless “enforcement” provisions. Then he talks about how wonderful “these people” are because some of them are working hard and dying in Iraq. Does he think we’re all stupid? He must. How else could he answer a question about illegal alien invaders with a story about legal immigrant US soldiers? McCain, like so many invasion supporters, thinks “these people” (you know who he means) are better than his own countrymen. Despicable.
McCain is already toast, but you wouldn’t know that from the time they gave him.
Romney chimed in at the end to point out that the Z visa would have legalized all the aliens immediately. He wants to crack down on the magnets: sanctuary cities and employers. He favors legal immigration but not illegal immigration. Sorry. No cigar. He doesn’t answer the question: what do we do with the ones already here? Of course we should put an end to the sanctuary cities and crack down on employers. But that won’t solve the problems. They don’t just come here for jobs and they don’t just live in sanctuary cities.
None of these guys comes close to recognizing the invasion for what it is, for the damage it’s doing, or the drastic steps that will be required in order for us to keep this country from becoming a balkanized turd world shithole with a banana republic government. With the massive political corruption that tolerates sanctuary cities and a wide open border, despotic judges ignoring the laws and the will of the public, and mobs and gangs running unchecked in our streets we’re more than halfway to shithole already.
Who will recognize this madness, face it, and end it?
Of them all Tancredo seems to see it most clearly. Paul and Hunter are also relatively clued in. The crowd rewarded the candor of these three with loud applause. As loud or louder than the media’s darlings got. At times the others were chuckling at Paul, laughing at him like stupid jocks. I may not vote for the man, but he at least has a saner position than any of the morons who were chuckling. Our country is in deep deep trouble. And some of these people think it’s a laughing matter.
The Democrats are in more or less complete denial, obsessed with climate change and health care. And more than half the Republican candidates are so deeply infected with liberal ideology they can’t or won’t recognize that America is being invaded and transformed into a place that soon not many of the indigenous people is going to want pay taxes to, live in, or die for, much less be president of.
