DNC Chair: Republicans Believe Illegal Immigration ‘Should be a Crime’
First, let me just show you the video….(via CNS News)
“We have 12 million undocumented immigrants in this country that are part of the backbone of our economy and this is not only a reality but a necessity,” she said. “And that it would be harmful–the Republican solution that I’ve seen in the last three years is that we should just pack them all up and ship them back to their own countries and that in fact it should be a crime and we should arrested them all.”
“Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D.-Fla.)”
So, first, let’s take a look at the name. Illegal Immigration. I am sorry. In this universe, I thought ILlegal meant against the law, right?
According to thesaurus.com, a synonym of against the law is “banned, criminal, illicit, unconstitutional, unlawful”. Now, criminal and crime. similar right? I don’t know. Perhaps she’s just smarter than me, but I doubt it… also the antonym of against the law is legal.
However, there is a flip side to this argument. The idea that Republicans are harsh, rich, immigrant hating people is wrong. In fact, I am all for LEGAL immigration. If you work for it and want to be an American citizen, do it legally! Great! I just don’t like it illegally. I am sorry if that offends others, but that’s how I feel. Oh wait, I’m not sorry.
