Liberal Logic: Arresting Fewer Illegals Proves the Border is Secure

December 7, 2011 @

For a conservative, observing the average liberal mind is an exercise in disorientation. In the photo lab of reason, they appear to have gotten only the negatives. Although we believe in civility and dialogue, speaking with a doctrinaire left-winger often proves meaningless unless you intend to write dialogue for Bizarro World. Now, another such moment is upon us. Judging from the liberal media, the newest talking points have apparently gone forward in the bid to bludgeon Middle America into accepting amnesty: The fact that the Obama administration has arrested fewer illegal immigrants than anytime in the last 40 years proves his policies are working, so we must now grant amnesty to all illegal immigrants living in the United States.

While the mainstream media clearly have an agenda, it is rarely so well illustrated as in a Washington Post story from December 5. “The Border Patrol apprehended 327,577 illegal crossers along the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal year 2011, which ended Sept. 30,” it noted, “numbers not seen since Richard Nixon was president.”

For most Americans, fewer apprehensions would show a deteriorating state of enforcement, rather than rousing success. But not to the experts of the Beltway media. The journalists insist this proves the border is more secure, because fewer illegals are attempting to cross.

The story then abruptly pivots: “Such a steep drop in illegal crossings gives supporters of immigration reform ammunition to argue that now is a good time to tackle the issue.”

Thus is laid bare the liberal agenda: pretend the border is secure, then press for amnesty in an election year.

    Seeing as how we have an illegal, traitor in our whitehouse along with a traitorous Senate what can we expect. He needs to be removed from office along with all of the Damocrats and rinos. Before we lose our country or end up in a civil war.
