So all the Republican presidential candidates and non-candidates are vociferously opposed to the immigration actions by President Obama that were strongly endorsed Tuesday night by Hillary Clinton. Instead of amnesty for illegal immigrants, they shout, let’s make sure we secure the borders first.
Well, the Florida coastline is a part of the border, and nearly every week it sees boatloads of illegals landing and being welcomed to stay. It’s the law, and federal immigration policy. Why are these illegals let in when their government says they are criminals? Because they’re Cubans, right?
I conclude from all this that Republicans just want to secure the borders against certain nationalities that they don’t want to come here. I’d say that’s inconsistent at best and racist at worst.
