I like Junkyard Blog a lot – so it pains me to point out this idea of rounding up illegals because immigrants protest is just the kind of unconstitutional hysteria I was saying we can do without in this country:
Hereâ€™s an idea. The next time they have one of these big rallies, send in the ICE and round â€˜em up, check their immigration status and send â€˜em back if theyâ€™re here illegally. Itâ€™s mass deporation made easy. No police state required.
That would have a chilling effect on future obnoxious mass protests, and might start the ball rolling to get some of these illegals out of here without Hillaryâ€™s nightmare coming true.
So, in order to appease Malkin’s and Preston’s frustration with immigration we will throw out Freedom to Congregate and Protest. We will replace it with Gestapo-like searches of people’s papers, to make sure they have permission to speak out. In what would clearly be an act of unwarranted searches people would be intimidated from the very things that make America what it is.
Malkin points out there are some bad apples in the pro immigration side. Well, duh! But that doesn’t make the entire immigrant population bad or evil. I hate people who use broad brushes to malign large groups based on simple minded stereo-types. I guess I am going to be losing more blog allies over this post. But there are limits to what any good person should be asked to tolerate. This is what I posted on earlier, the kind of discussion we don’t need and is well below what this country is capable of providing.
