Calling an illegal alien an ‘undocumented immigrant’ is like calling a drug dealer an ‘unlicensed pharmacist.’
“You can’t have open borders as long as you have a welfare state.” – Milton Friedman
As a legal immigrant who waited patiently across the ocean to receive my permission to immigrate to the U.S., I understand the plight of over four million forgotten legal immigrants who are awaiting patiently the disposition of their cases, while the Immigration office works the backlog of applications, some as old as twenty years.
But do pro-amnesty pundits, lobbyists, MSM talking heads, Republicans, Democrats, Big Labor, Big Corporations, and other interested groups refer to this situation when they label our immigration system “broken?”
I was curious and decided to do a random survey of people on the streets of D.C., in stores, and by written request on various social networks, assuring those polled that their answers will remain anonymous. My two questions were simple:
1. Do you believe that the current immigration system is “broken” and why?
2. Will amnesty of millions of illegal aliens hurt/help this country and why?
The large majority of Democrats polled believed that our immigration system is broken; they could not tell me why they thought it broken, with the exception of a few very confident individuals who blamed the current level of illegal immigration on former President George W. Bush.
