Imagine the chutzpah necessary for one to stroll into someone’s home and demand not only that they be allowed to live there, but to further demand that they are afforded all the rights and privileges of the household.
If an intruder came strolling into our homes, most of us would demand their removal from the premises and few would cater to their every whim. However, when this illegal act is perpetrated on a massive scale, liberals cannot acquiesce to the demands of intruders fast enough.
Oregon, a state that is known for its hipster culture and hippy ways, is now engaged in a lawsuit filed by a group of illegal immigrants who are outraged that voters of the Beaver State approved a law barring driver’s licenses for illegals.
In 2014, Oregon voters soundly approved Measure 88 which prohibits the issuing of licenses for illegals. In fact, not only did two-thirds of the voters approve the measure, but 35 of Oregon’s 36 counties approved the legislation as did every congressional district in the state.
In short: the people spoke.
However, a group of five illegals are suing the state, claiming that Measure 88 unfairly targets a “disfavored minority group” and that Oregon voters were motivated by “animus toward persons from Mexico and Central America.”
While one might be tempted to simply dismiss this nonsense as unrealistic legal maneuverings, California, just a few short years ago, approved a voter initiative to ban homosexual marriages and the legal sour grapes soon turned into an overruling of the will of the voters.
Illegal immigrant supporters maintain that the law is unfair as it makes it more difficult for illegals to work in Oregon. However, a simple notion appears to escape the attention of those who relentlessly crusade to erode the rule of law: illegal immigrants aren’t supposed to be working here.
Though the left (and too much of the so-called right) love to pretend that illegal immigration is an unsolvable problem and that surrender is our only viable option, the truth is that illegals who are disallowed from functioning in society will have few choices besides returning to their home country.
If illegals are unable to obtain driver’s licenses, housing and employment, the only real alternative is to return to the country in which they are supposed to be living.
What this group of criminals are really complaining about has nothing to do with supposed civil rights violations, but centers on the fact that Oregon’s law makes it more-difficult to exist in the country illegally- a fact not lost on voters as they approved the commonsense measure.
Though the 2016 Republican primary has undeniably served as a bit of a sideshow at times, one of the most-welcome benefits of Donald Trump’s candidacy is that the conversation has shifted significantly concerning illegal immigration.
Prior to the Donald’s bold candor, there was not a single viable candidate who had the guts to loudly and unapologetically proclaim that what needs to be done is a firm and uncompromising return to the rule of law. Trump’s promise of removing the illegals from our nation has emboldened other conservatives who may speak more boldly than they otherwise could at a time when the question concerning illegal immigration was “How much amnesty should we afford to illegals?”
The lawsuit in Oregon is laughable, but might provide a fantastic opportunity. Any plaintiff who arrives to discuss the lawsuit as an illegal immigrant should be arrested in the courtroom and promptly returned to the nation from whence he came.
Not only would this save taxpayers from the legal expenses associated with a lawsuit, but it will rid Oregon of a few illegals. Two birds, one stone…
