If you are a citizen of a Latin American country, and you have a propensity to commit crimes and/or a criminal record, you are nuts if you do not come to the US. Here is a comparison of three types of Latin Americans, and the reasons why being an illegal immigrant in the US is the only way for the criminals among the three types to go.
|If he…||criminal who is a Latin American country citizen in Latin America||criminal who is an American citizen of Latin American descent in the U.S.||criminal who is a Latin American country citizen illegally in America|
|gets arrested||go to horrible Latin American prison||due process of law; maybe end up in American prison||released because the Democrat business model calls for no prosecuting or holding of illegal aliens so as to suck up to American citizens of Latin American descent who can vote and to acquire additional residents who will likely vote Democrat illegally now or legally after they get amnesty|
The Republican business model is to gingerly denounce the Democrat policy of ignoring US law out of fear that if they do more, they will surely lose the Latin American voters portion of the American electorate.
We have sanctuary cities, but they are a bit beside the point. Obama has made all of American a sanctuary country that is attractive to a wide variety of Latin Americans, but most attractive to Latin American criminals.
I suspect the Democrat policy of ignoring immigration laws for partisan political reasons does not apply to illegal aliens from places other than Latin America—because those people are not relatives of a sizable U.S. voting identity group like blacks or Latin Americans. In other words, you do not get the immunity from prosecution for your crimes if you are an illegal alien. You only get it if you are a Latin American illegal alien.
There is a poem by Emma Lazurus on the Statue of Liberty. Its famous last six lines say,
"Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Here is the de facto, Barack Obama/Democrat party modified version that ought to be on a plaque on the Mexican border:
"Keep Latin lands, your best citizens!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your criminals, your vagrants,
Your violent gangs yearning to walk free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming prisons.
Send these, the murderers and rapists to me,
I lift my voter registration card beside the golden door!"
