Women’s March Endorses Zeroth Amendment:Never?
“Rooted in the promise of America’s call for huddled masses yearning to breathe free, we believe in immigrant and refugee rights regardless of status or country of origin. It is our moral duty to keep families together and empower all aspiring Americans to fully participate in, and contribute to, our economy and society. We reject mass deportation, family detention, violations of due process and violence against queer and trans migrants. Immigration reform must establish a roadmap to citizenship, and provide equal opportunities and workplace protections for all. We recognize that the call to action to love our neighbor is not limited to the United States, because there is a global migration crisis. We believe migration is a human right and that no human being is illegal.”[PDF]When will leftists realize that everything they’ve been fighting for is jeopardized by mass third world immigration: good wages for low income workers, economic and social equality, environmental protections, rising living standards for African Americans etc. People like Cesar Chavez, Barbara Jordan, and Samuel Gompers all understood this. Will today’s leftists wake up before it’s too late, or have we already passed the point of no return?
The problem with immigration is it turns into a political doomsday machine, a juggernaut of ever-expanding special interest groups that make it ever harder to say rationally, okay, we’ve reached severely diminishing returns with mass immigration, so time for a timeout.
