The Republican candidate field for the presidency is a hodgepodge of cowards with a few stand-outs. The surest litmus test to discover who is serious about law and order and the preservation of our nation is the issue of illegal immigration.
Those who profess that it is somehow immoral to deport millions of criminals are not serious about preserving a future for our nation. Those who insist that it is impossible are equally unserious about our nation’s future. Those who even hint at amnesty are traitors and only those who unashamedly pronounce that a return to the rule of law and sovereign border is necessary can be trusted with the highest office in the land.
It’s not hyperbole, really. Either we have laws or we do not. One recent case illustrates the need to finally get serious about our immigration enforcement.
An illegal immigrant was ejected from a nightclub last weekend in Dallas and before being shot by police, the invader ran-down two police officers, injuring one of them.
The kicker? The illegal had been deported 3 times over the past 11 years!
Eduardo Gonzalez-Rios, 29, was ejected from a nightclub, Kalua Discotheque, in Dallas by a bouncer over an altercation. The man retrieved his SUV from the valet and put it into reverse, hitting one of the officers.
He then put it in drive and hopped a curb, hitting the second officer and dragging him about 15 feet.
A Dallas police press release said:
“According to witnesses, this is when officers opened fire on the suspect striking him. The vehicle driven by the suspect crashed and the he was subsequently taken into custody.”
The second officer, Senior Cpl. Ed Lujan, was taken to the hospital with a severe head laceration, broken bones and other injuries. He is in stable condition.
The illegal was shot in the arm and is in custody. He was deported in 2004, 2005 and 2011.
The question which naturally arises is: “Why the hell was this man allowed to repeatedly return to this country?”
Let us all remember this instance the next time Jeb Bush scolds that illegal immigration is “an act of love” or the next time any candidate postures that amnesty is a moral duty.
Our moral duty is to protect the citizens of the United States and the laws of our nation. Those who violate our laws by entering our country illegally are entitled to nothing but a ticket back home a promise of jail time if they ever come back again.
