There is certainly a severe diminishment in the quality of military leaders these days. President (former General) Eisenhower deported illegal aliens en masse in Operation Wetback because of their excessive numbers. (Now you can’t even use that word.)That was then. Today’s top brass (including retired persons) have to be politically correct according to elite values.General Colin Powell, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, has expressed his support for lawbreaking foreigners against American citizens.Has he forgotten that illegal aliens present a national security threat? An al Qaeda thug can cross the same open borders as cheap-labor Mexicans.
Powell says illegal immigrants do his home repairs, AP, September 19, 2010Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says illegal immigrants do essential work in the U.S. and he has firsthand knowledge of that — because they fix his house.Powell, a moderate Republican, urged his party Sunday to support immigration generally because it is “what’s keeping this country’s lifeblood moving forward.”In an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press,” he said a path to legal status should be offered to illegal immigrants because they “are doing things we need done in this country.”He added: “They’re all over my house, doing things whenever I call for repairs, and I’m sure you’ve seen them at your house. We’ve got to find a way to bring these people out of the darkness and give them some kind of status.”
He has the open-borders talking points down pretty well. Too bad he doesn’t care about the veterans who are displaced for jobs by illegal aliens.
