Pushing Amnesty With the Perfect Illegal

The ruling class is really painting thick layers of red rover red rover let everyone come over comprehensive immigration reform. The I-35 corridor series in the New York Times kicked off with a horrible start in Laredo, Texas. Relying on places can be dodgy, especially when a reader may know something real about the town. The media needs people. The Times feels it has found the perfect illegal with Mario Hernandez. SWPL readers will automatically associate the name with the Mexican immigration issue, and can push out of their mind the other Hernandezs around them. It is laughable as Mr. Hernandez is an incredibly unique individual in relation to the problem of illegal immigration (forget legal), but the media will still march on proclaiming him as an example of the pitfalls of our system that needs reform now.

Mario Hernandez has "deep roots" in the US. He was a child who came over from Cuba in the mid '60s. He is not an illegal because of the unique immigration story of Cubans in America, and as a Cuban, he is also part of a high achieving immigrant group compared to other Hispanics. The Times is using him as a symbol though with a follow up on his ordeal, including his patriotic zeal in voting in elections since 1976 despite not being a citizen. In their rush to use a symbolic immigrant in limbo who is a perfect angel, we see how broken our government is. He gets jobs with government agencies. He registers to vote in multiple states. He is employed in multiple jobs. No one catches on that he is not a citizen. This Mario is the symbol of a system desperately needing reform, and reform in the progressive manner. It will not be for more strict enforcement, because Mario is a perfect example of innocent illegal immigrants. Pay no attention to the thousands of criminal immigrants the government releases back on the streets.

Our system is not intended to catch everything. It is meant to hoover in more immigrants to eventually birth kids that will automatically be citizens and potential Democrats. At the least, they will be cheap labor and demand for social services at churches. Mr. Hernandez did live a spotless life: no criminal past, worked all his life, married, raised son who served in the military and just wanted to take a cruise in retirement. He is not a symbol for the illegal experience, but for the Cuban-American experience. The horrible sham of using Mr. Hernandez as a symbol for the plight of illegal immigrants that should cause reform is that he is the exception. The other Mr. Hernandezs in the US are more likely creating billboards for the Mexican drug cartels warning Texas police officers of death fi they do not take bribes. Sailer sees what the Times misses in the Mexican tattoo shops that mimic the cartel veneration of Santa Muerte. If we do reform immigration, it will be per the Times and their cronies wishes. There will be no efficiencies and tracking improvements to help a case like Mario Hernandez, because for every spotless record Mario it will help reward, it would find ten tattooed Marios to deport.

I wonder how long they had to look to find this guy? I'll make a deal with the NYT - I'll agree to amnesty every Cuban guy who has lived in this country for at least forty years, if they will agree to deport every illegal who has been here less than ten.

Think that they'll go for it?

I, for one, am strongly in favor of comprehensive immigration reform. America needs to die, and this seems like just the thing to kill it off once and for all.

It's a bit puzzling why the ruling class is so forcefully pushing amnesty, amnesty, amnesty. I mean, aren't they getting pretty much everything they want already given our decades long de facto "do nothing" stance on immigration of all kinds?

Who is stopped from entering the country? Almost nobody. Lately there has been an explosion in young illegals -- all those "dream" seekers. Well, if you build it, they will come.

I guess part of "reform" is also upping the legal numbers. Gotta have more H-1Bs for Zuckky and the boyz. God forbid salaries should go up for white middle class engineers.

Demographically, the job is done. Whites will be displaced, period. There's no going back unless we start kicking all these new colonists out. You know, the way all those African and Asian countries did. Yes little Miss Progressive Indian immigrant. When YOUR nation decided it didn't like the non-native interlopers who showed up, it chased them out at the point of a gun, and killed a whole bunch too. Yet now you lecture us on our need for inclusion and tolerance.

Sigh. While silly white religious conservatives spent the last fifty years fighting a futile fight to stop abortion, they let the country get stolen out from under them. Immigration was a battle that could have been won back in the 80s when everyone was so concerned about the "culture wars" and rock lyrics or whatever. Meanwhile, the real culture war -- the direct, in your face WAR on our culture -- went on unchecked. That's called "sleight of hand" - look over here while I switch the cards. White America fell for it good and hard.

These people are unbelievably greedy, and they have a mean streak. They want to rub Middle America's nose in it. It will be their undoing, in the end. America won't survive as currently constituted, and when it goes down, so will they. But thre's a lot of good material in this country, and we can build again.

In another sense, it's a bit puzzling that they haven't gotten it yet. If 100% of senior Democrats, 90% of senior Republicans, 99% of banks and corporations, and 100% of MSM have been wanting it since the Bush administration... shouldn't they have gotten it already?

PA,

Is not the logical conclusion the people have thus far had some power after all? Unless there is another agent of frustration not yet accounted for.

Well, there are enough Republicans in the House who are still Americans to frustrate these plans, many of them Tea Party types. So far anyway. Of course the leadership hates them and that's why they've gone full-throttle against the Tea Party movement. It's a lovely alliance: the MSM, which foams at the mouth at the word "Tea Party," and the Republican leadership. A gathering of scoundrels.
