The amnesty apologists at the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic) recently gave space to their latest heartthrob, Jerry Lewis. Readers get the thrust via the identifying tag following his commentary. The fact that he is Mesa senator is incidental. The tell-all core is “He defeated Senate President Russell Pearce in a recall election last fall.”
Lewis, who mysteriously omits facts such as these, spews the same rehashed platitudes regarding dealing “humanely” with the millions of illegal aliens who have invaded our country in violation of our national sovereignty. In his clichéd listing of reasons not to deport criminally charged illegals — taken directly from the Linda Valdez and Luis Gutierrez playbook — he rattles off a favorite of the pro-amnesty crowd: “We should also ensure that our policies do not separate families — especially working fathers from their wives and children.”
Surely with his background as a Bishop and Stake President in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints which places heavy emphasis on Hispanic recruitment, Jerry Lewis is well aware of the fact that many of the illegals have already done just that without any governmental nudge. They crossed the border ostensibly in search of employment. After sending a few checks back to Maria and the niños, a new honey ends up displacing the original family. Soon they have easily interchangeable wives and families. It’s not much of a leap to figure out which one is more easily forgotten.
It isn’t just supporters of border enforcement who want Jose to go home. It’s also his waiting wife and kids in Mexico or Guatemala. Which family are you more concerned with, Jerry?
