It’s been almost a month since Representative Luis Gutiérrez (IL-D) first started bragging about Obama’s plan to grant amnesty to “3 or 4, maybe even 5 million” illegal aliens.
Today, a giddy Gutiérrez showed up on MSNBC and deployed one of the nuttiest amnesty talking points of the year.
“With the new threat of ISIS,” Gutiérrez said, “shouldn’t we just bring these people out of the shadows, have them register with the government?”
Yes, that really happened.
“We know who they are. We know where they live. We know that they’re behaving themselves. We can use,” America’s bureaucratic and military resources, he argues, “to prevail against other threats against the homeland.”
Talk about crazy liberal logic.
Gutiérrez says “7 out of 10” of the people “who break their backs, everyday, in the fields of America, are undocumented workers. It’s time we give them a chance.”
It’s unclear as to what chance Gutiérrez is referring to. He fails to mention the thing that’s stopping those millions of illegal immigrants from marching down to their local immigration office, and starting the process of becoming American citizens.
The truth is, illegal immigrants chose to be illegal immigrants, everyday, and there’s nothing standing in their way and stopping them from following the same rules and obeying the same immigration laws that everybody else obeys.
Hopefully, and I can’t believe I’m saying this, loud voices from the Left will speak out against Obama’s executive action on amnesty.
“Democratic candidates in nearly every closely fought Senate race have criticized the idea of aggressive action by Obama,” reports Karen Tumulty and Robert Costa of the Washington Post.
MSNBC host Ed Schultz, who called Obama’s plans to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants a “mistake,” needs to apply pressure on the president.
And most of all, I hope that Barack Obama listens to Barack Obama.
“My job,” Obama said way back in September of last year, “in the executive branch is supposed to be to carry out the laws that are passed … if we start broadening that, then essentially, I would be ignoring the law in a way that I think would be very difficult to defend legally. So that’s not an option.”
But, of course, I’m not holding my breath.
