In 1913, nearly 15% of the U.S. population was foreign-born. You know what that number is today? 13%. America isn’t getting more foreign; it’s getting browner. That’s most people’s big hang-up with illegal immigration. I wish we could just admit that.
There are 900,000 fewer illegal immigrants here than there were six years ago. Any discussion about the illegal immigration “problem” should start with pointing out that it’s really not that much of a problem.
The bigger problem is our overreaction to it. The Obama administration spent $18 billion on immigration enforcement last year. You know how much it spent on all other federal law enforcement? About $14.4 billion. And this is supposed to be a liberal administration. Illegal immigrants aren’t eating away at our public resources — they generally put in about what they get back. But this specter of a Third World invasion is costing us more than half of our federal law enforcement budget.
We need immigrants in this country. They do jobs other people don’t want do, they become American consumers and they’re good for our economy.
Remember, all of this is transpiring during a presidential term that was supposed to be the most transparent in history. Obama repeatedly boasted that the once-secret wheelings and dealings of federal agencies, congressmen, lobbyists—and, ostensibly, the military—would be revealed to all. He’d utilize the latest technology to open up those cloistered proceedings. Yet five years into this newfangled era of transparent government, a pro-free press nonprofit has to fight tooth and nail merely to be allowed to bring a steno machine into the vicinity of a military trial. Where, we might add, a young man stands to spend the rest of his life in prison for making transparent the wrongdoing that occurred throughout a war the president himself considered illegitimate. Now that’s absurd.
Attention assholes: don’t sexually harass a girl when she can easily find you on Facebook and send your mom proof of your perpetuation of rape culture.
Moral of the day? Don’t mess with me.
Okay, I’m dying to know if you actually sent it to his mom. And then what happened.
Oh, I sent it. And I expressed to her my extreme worry over his treatment of women.
Feels good, bro.
