Hmmm...truth bomb. America is abandoning rationality to justify illegal immigration It’s clearly illegal. It’s also not a human right. And America’s attempts to address it can surely be characterized as irrationality. The “it” is illegal immigration. In principle, when addressing immigration many repeatedly proclaim that America is a nation of laws, highlight the Constitution and cite various legal precedents, decisions and principles. With tough talk and ceremonial speeches, they even claim that those entering the country illegally will be deported. In practice, however, it’s quite a different story. A candid assessment of illegal immigration in America reveals confusing policies, ineffective programs, overloaded migration courts, years of legal proceedings, millions of men, women and children unlawfully resident with millions more attempting entry, and a laxity in the enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws. Good start, but I particularly liked this part: Surveys report that 15 percent of the world’s population, more than 1 billion people, would migrate to another country if they could. Among the 33 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, the proportion that would like to migrate is even higher at 27 percent, or approximately 42 million people, with the primary destination being the United States. Given a couple of Democratic administrations, they'll all be here.
