Usually, liberals push ideas that aren’t true, but sound like they could be true. Raise taxes and we’ll get more revenue! Give condoms to teenagers and we’ll reduce unwed pregnancies! Ban guns and we’ll have fewer gun crimes!
On immigration, they’re out of practice and don’t know what to say when their auto-pilot “living in the shadows” claptrap doesn’t work.
They seem to know that the prospect of amnesty has something to do with the current crisis, so the word “amnesty” pops into their heads, and then they end up blurting out that the cause is the solution.
We need to discourage people coming to America for amnesty, by passing amnesty! Yes, of course! If Congress would only pass amnesty, the people of the world would say to themselves, “Uh-oh! I better not cross the border into America now! I’ll never get amn –” Oh, wait.
