Liberals are fond of telling us why building a secure border wall is a bad idea.
A wall won’t stop those who are determined to enter the United States: As though desire provides rights. Ask Harvey Weinstein, Al Franken, Charlie Rose and the myriad other high profile sexual abusers about that.
We can’t stop the illicit drugs coming across the border: We just have to consider our kids collateral damage.
Our population is aging: Regardless of the fact that many illegals have the equivalent of a grade school education and limited skills, we are told we need a younger labor force. Illegal aliens, though prized by the illegal labor profiteers who belong to the Chambers of Commerce, are not educated high tech workers. Crops are able to be harvested mechanically. When they are trained to work in the service industries and construction trades, they undercut wages and take jobs from American workers. Their American-born children then compete against our own American students for university placements and jobs.
It’s cruel to break up families: Although deported illegal aliens are free to take their children home with them, this bogus claim remains high on the faith-based community’s list.
Now there are even more novel approaches to advocating for an open border. We are to consider the “fragile ecology” of the desert border region, and big cats — Jaguars, to be exact. The Arizona Republic devoted three pages to telling us about the “beautiful cats” that are “known to cross the border in the same mountainous region as people.” Bet you didn’t know “building an unbroken barrier to stop the people, means extinction of the America jaguar.” The article is titled, “A big cat, a big wall, a big question.” The bold subtitle hits the preposterous button: “Keeping border crossers out of the U.S. would also affect jaguars, symbols of a strong Southwestern ecosystem. Is it worth it?”
Sunday’s front page report, continuing on to three jump pages, reveals there is another wildcat endangered by the construction of a border wall. Ocelots, described as spotted night stalkers that prowl the Amazon, are also threatened. Most migrate from Mexico into Texas. We are told they live a life of mystery in the borderland shadows, evading even the eyes of the biologists who study them, except during occasional live trappings or roadkill cleanups.
Though biologists miss them, they haven’t escaped the notice of the open border proponents at the Arizona Republic, writing, “In Arizona, at least occasionally, a few slink along the tree-lined mountains that rise from the Sonoran Desert, a place where they face local extinction if a border wall cuts off migration routes.”
Next we’ll be told that construction of the border wall will further endanger exotic species, previously unknown in the southern deserts. Watch for articles on the newly spotted white rhinoceros, penguins, zebras or gorillas. The Arizona Republic is not above using any scheme in its attempt to halt the much needed wall.
Many Americans who voted for Donald Trump last year did so, based in large part, on his promise to build a barrier. Illegal invaders on two feet, must be stopped.
