What kind of distorted thinking regards the illegal entry into the United States as worthy of rewards?
No surprise here. The open borders supporters at the Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic)!
The daily heralds the news that based on Barack Obama’s executive order — his regal route for bypassing congress — the AZ Department of Transportation will uphold a policy making not only illegal aliens eligible for state issued driver’s licenses, but also their spouses, children and parents, if a non-citizen relative is serving in the military.
The online version of the article, which refers to illegal invaders as “immigrants” or “undocumented” 15 times, with the sympathetic qualifier “young” sprinkled liberally throughout, is topped by a preposterous video featuring the outer columnist E. J. Montini and illegal champion reporter Richard Ruelas. The duo are engaged in a choreographed discourse in which they conclude Gov. Jan Brewer has been driven by “spite,” in arguing against providing driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. She has contended that only Congress has the authority to grant non-citizens legal presence, which is required under state law to obtain a driver’s license or state issued ID.
A 1996 Arizona law, in statute as 41-1080 requires persons seeking a state license to show their presence is “authorized under federal law.”
We happily provide our readers with this helpful primer “Deciphering Republicese,” which includes a link to our popular “Lingo.” Number three on the list explains the actual meaning of “undocumented.”
