According to the FWD.us organization, which is founded and funded by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, it is not only morally wrong to enforce American immigration laws – it actually “hurts public safety” to do so. Testifying before the House Judiciary Committee this week, the organization’s president, Todd Schulte, said that Congress and the Trump administration should stop enforcing the laws that keep our border strong.
“Congress’s repeated obsession with passing laws that would lead to huge increases in deportations of undocumented immigrants without any serious criminal record puts millions more families at risk and hurts public safety for everyone,” Schulte said.
Pulling statistics from God-knows-where, Schulte told the committee that the American people supported amnesty for illegal immigrants at a rate of 90%. One wonders how the most anti-illegal immigration candidate in history could have won the presidential election with that kind of sentiment out there, but hey. Who are we to argue with a left-wing group’s “statistics.” They wouldn’t just go to Washington and LIE, would they?
Schulte said it was time to forget about building a wall and deporting illegals already in the country.
“Instead, Congress should pass smart immigration reform that would strengthen border security, create a pathway to citizenship for those undocumented immigrants who can pass a background check, and modernize our broken legal visa system to fit the needs of today’s economy,” he advised.
Amnesty, he concluded, would “make our nation safer.”
Well, to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, so it should not be surprising to see open-borders advocates making a full court press at this precarious point in American history. These groups thought they could swing straight from Obama to Hillary – from tacit amnesty and executive orders to full amnesty driven by a Democratic majority in Congress. Instead, they got Trump and the Republicans. Now they’re terrified that the U.S. will not be going the way of Europe quite as rapidly as they had begun to hope.
