Dr. Sowell: Special Rights for Illegal Aliens

Thomas Sowell details the myriad preferential "rights" illegal aliens will receive which are not accorded ordinary Americans.

Sowell's final assessment:

"Both the facts of the past and the dangers of the future are being ignored in the rush to give immediate benefits to illegal aliens, washed down with much talk about border control but no requirement that the border actually be controlled before these benefits go into effect.

"The political strategy of this package deal legislation is to give immediate and irrevocable special benefits to some and make pious promises about the future to get all this past the others."

We have to keep fighting on this issue. We are being forced to absorb the equivalent to the entire country of Ecuador or Austria, half of North Korea, or the countries of Costa Rica, Ireland and the Central African Republic combined. This is ridiculous.
In addition, rather than upholding the tradition of accepting those who have something to offer in the way of education, skills, or expertise, we are expected to invite those with nothing to offer but their physical bodies to do labor. How is this any different than indentured servitude?

I completely agree. One thing I've never understood is the idea we need to legalize people to "do jobs Americans won't/aren't doing." This seems to presuppose that the new immigrants will be doing these jobs in perpetuity. If not, then wouldn't it follow we must eventually have more illegal aliens to do those kinds of jobs? It's a very cynical point of view, either way.
