Break into someone’s house, give your kids their TV, and suddenly it’s the kid’s TV, because that kid dreamed all their life of owning your TV set.
Democrats and RINOs keep calling it immigration reform, but they should call it what it is – amnesty.
About two hours after holding a ceremonial signing New Jersey’s version of the “Dream Act,” Gov. Chris Christie tweeted a photo with one of the “Dreamers” the law will benefit, a New Jersey high school student who immigrated to the U.S. without authorization at a young age
She didn’t “immigrate without authorization” – she broke in or her parents broke in for her. That’s like someone stealing your car and saying they’re a “driver without formal acknowledgement”, and demanding they be allowed to keep your car.
But that doesn’t stop a RINO like Christie from doubling down:
No, I mean doubling down on pushing for amnesty:
Union City, New Jersey (CNN) - Flanked by Hispanic leaders, students, and immigration reform advocates, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie celebrated the signing of his state’s so-called DREAM Act on Tuesday, hailing the new law a sound economic choice and an object lesson in bipartisan cooperation.
“Sound economic choice” by importing illegal alien workers who work below legal wages, crony corporations get cheap labor, and Democrats get to give handouts and get votes.
Legalizing illegals (which states can’t do) will take those illegals out of the illegal labor market and is seen as a way to recruit them into unions by Democrats. The economic effect is to take away the under-the-table workers and end up raising wages across the board, hurting those employers who were using illegal labor to undercut costs. The illegal workers lose the jobs they had illegally, and the employers can’t afford to pay them. So even ignoring the illegality all around, it will actually hurt businesses and depress wages.
But it will add to union and unemployment rolls, and drag more ethnic-voting-bloc groups out to vote for Democrats.
“We know that when we bring people together, when we work together despite some of our differences, that we also set an example of optimism for every one of the 8.9 million people who live here,” Christie said at a signing event in Union City, a Hispanic stronghold just across the Hudson River from Manhattan.
That there is a “Hispanic stronghold” in the US full of illegal aliens who are being pandered to is frankly offensive. Ethnic neighborhoods that are recognized as primarily full of criminals demean both the ethnic group there and US citizens, and particularly US citizens of that ethnic group. But Balkanization is good for race-baiting politicians and Democrats giving handouts to ethnic voting blocs.
“Unlike what happens in Washington, that government can actually work for you,” he added. “That things can actually get done, that agreements can be reached, and that commitments can be kept.”
No, Christie, you cannot do that. Because laws for immigration come from Washington. It’s one of the few authorities the fedgov has unquestioned in Article 1 Section 8:
To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization
But that’s not going to stop Chris Christie from making New Jersey taxpayers (as well as national taxpayers) subsidize illegal aliens and their children who benefit from those crimes:
The bill grants in-state college tuition rates to undocumented high school graduates who attended a New Jersey high school for at least three years.
Meanwhile, the kid in Delaware or New York who wants to go to a college in Jersey will be paying full rate. And their taxes – their money from their pockets – will be taken to subsidize those illegal aliens.
That money in their pocket is being taken by a state government acting illegally, taken by force from their pockets, and given to illegal aliens in the form of subsidies.
Try sneaking in to a foreign country and demanding that you be treated better than the children of citizens of that nation, and that their government give you what you want.
That’s what’s going on here, but in a masterful work of propaganda, people actually believe that illegal aliens should be treated better than their own children.
That’s downright cuckoo.
