I want to start this letter with the definition of “illegal.” Per Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary’s 10th Edition: “not according to or authorized by law.” Pretty simple and straightforward, I’d say.
Why don’t most Democrats comprehend such a simple definition?
If I went to another country illegally, does anyone think I could get a driver’s license? In Mexico, if I was an illegal immigrant, I’d be thrown into jail, no questions asked. In China, I’d be shot! But in the good old USA, illegal immigrants expect and get driver’s licenses and other benefits. North Carolina in the recent past was giving illegal immigrants driver’s licenses and then supposedly stopped. Now they want to do so again.
Imagine the indignity illegal immigrants will feel with a license declaring “No Lawful Status” as was recently proposed.
Never miss a local story.
Now North Carolina Democrats want illegal immigrants to receive the very same licenses as a legal citizen. There’s that word again. For those who have trouble with the definition such as legal: “1. Deriving authority from or founded on law 2. Conforming to or permitted by law or established rules.”
Pretty simple don’t you think? Unless you’re a Democrat like Rep. Paul Luabke. He wants illegal immigrants to be “treated like everyone else”.
I don’t have a problem with people who come here legally like my ancestors did and, as did the majority of our population. But to reward illegal immigrants driver’s licenses or any other benefits of a legal citizen is not only crazy, it’s wrong.
As far as I am concerned, it’s also a slap in the face to those who did come here legally and took many years to go through the process legally. There’s that word again. Saying an illegal immigrant is just an undocumented worker like Hillary Clinton did is like saying a drug dealer is just an unlicensed pharmacist.
Let’s stop the politicking of trying to get Democrats the Hispanic vote, which is all this about. As an illegal immigrant you don’t have any rights! The Bill of Rights does not apply to illegal immigrants.
Now, what part of the word illegal is still hard to understand?
