Governor’s Executive Order: Backing Out the Fiction
Racial profiling – N/A
Scapegoating – N/A
Hate – N/A
Political grandstanding for campaign purposes – Humorous and N/A
As are these:
National origin, color of skin, accent – N/A
Taking the law into one’s own hands – N/A (… except, apparently, when one is a member of the state Senate and hungry after hours)
That such baseless statements are still being trotted out a couple of years after this discussion began confirms the complete absence of any substantive or rational arguments for not enforcing our borders, not upholding our immigration laws, not affirming our sovereignty and not respecting the efforts of those immigrants who complied with our laws to come here.
Switching for a moment from the macro to the micro and focusing on the remarks by the Executive Director of the Rhode Island Democrat Party after the Governor’s press conference – Mr. Executive Director:
1.) Please look up the definition of the word “plummet” before employing it again.
2.) As for your statement
Doesn’t the governor understand that hundreds of thousands of immigrants have legally come to Rhode Island’s borders for the past two centuries and have greatly contributed to our society?
Yes, in fact, we all understand and concur. This is a proud tradition that we are seeking to continue through enforcement of our immigration laws and this Executive Order. At last, a point of agreement has been located.
