What normal person capable of human compassion could disagree? Who would advocate or actively work to achieve breaking families apart? It’s a moral given: Of course, those involved should stop separating families.
All conservatives and patriots should agree . . . right?
On Tuesday (2/20), Breitbart headlined: DACA Illegal Aliens March in Lockstep With Democrats: Maintaining Chain Migration Takes Priority Over Amnesty. . . “Chain migration is essential to big business interests for a never-ending flow of mostly low-skilled foreign workers to the country…”
That is completely true – and completely irrelevant to the moral argument, that practicality aside, it is immoral to separate families.
“Chain migration” has been positioned by the Left as a moral issue and needs to be debated on that ground.
So here we go.
The place to start is first to agree with the moral premise of the Left, that it is immoral to separate families. We’re all now on the same level moral playing field.
Then we need to ask the critical question:
Who are the people separating families?
Obviously, if you want to stop separating families, you need to identify those individuals who are responsible for the separating.
For the Left, the answer is equally obvious – the Racist Evil Deplorable Conservative Republicans . . .
“Family reunification recognizes that what makes a family American is a shared commitment to the values of freedom and equality that are enshrined in the Constitution, not where the family is from.”
Sen. Tammy Duckworth, Feb. 2, 2018
Yet as Sen. Duckworth admits, however unknowingly, her senatorial opponents and their supporters cannot be the culprits here – for she is talking about “family reunification.” A family that was once unified but is now no longer, needs to be reunified. Okay, fine, Tammy, we agree.
So now, Tammy, you get to answer this question, how did the family get un-unified in the first place? Let me help you out here.
Wouldn’t that be by a citizen of a foreign country breaking his family apart by coming to America, illegally or legally, and leaving the rest of his family behind? . . .
No US politician – not President Trump, not any Senator or Congressman – has caused the breakup of any family into those residing in and out of the US.
None of them forced a foreign citizen to sneak illegally across our border, or to stay here illegally if their parents did so, breaking up their families thereby.
None of them forced a foreign citizen to immigrate here legally. Yes, this is a nation of immigrants who came here to become citizens and voluntarily left their families behind. Tens of millions of Americans have relatives in foreign countries. They go back to where they live and visit them – the relatives don’t get a free pass to US citizenship. . .
“Dreamers” are in America because their parents snuck here illegally, bringing them with them. This give them absolutely no moral right whatsoever to demand their aunts and uncles get to come here too.
Want to stop separating your families? Go back and live with them. It is you who are separating your family, not the US government.
Use your education to make your family’s country a better place. Be “a warrior” for your family – please be one where they live, not where they don’t.
All illegal aliens, all DACA Dreamers, need to hear this message: Stop separating your family – go back home and live with them.
It’s the obvious moral solution for those demanding to Stop Separating Families.
