(Tea Party PAC) – According to one of Mexico’s ambassadors to the United States, it’s time for the country to reopen and allow migration to start up all over again, complete with refugee inflows, asylum seekers, and temporary contract workers.
Apparently, COVID-19 doesn’t infect folks from Mexico, because this kind of insanity is how you get major outbreaks of disease, and since we’re already in the middle of an upswing in coronavirus cases, allowing folks in from south of the border seems like a really stupid idea.
According to a new report by Breitbart, Ambassador Martha Barcena Coqui recently spoke at a forum that was put on by the National Immigration Forum where she said the U.S. immigration system “has to be based on facts and realities.”
“The facts and realities is the need to protect the most vulnerable, the need to keep open the generosity towards refugees, the need to recognize the complementarity of labor markets and demographic profiles, the need for temporary workers in the United States,” she went on to say.
According to Coqui, our country shouldn’t be viewing migration as a security threat, going on to say, “If you conceptualize migration as a national security issue, if you [push for] securitization of migration, and what is even worse, if you criminalize migration, then your approach always be policing, contentious [and] reduction of migration. So what we need is really to conceptualize migration … as an economic and social and political phenomena.”
Is that so?
Well, how are we not supposed to view immigration as a security threat when you have tons of folks with rap sheets a mile long mingling in with the massive crowds and entering out country to cause havoc? Many of these individuals work for drug cartels. How is that not a threat to our national security?
Not to mention how easy such a move would make it for Islamic radicals to gain entry to the United States.
Mark Krikorian, the director of the Center for Immigration Studies responded by saying, “With all due respect to Madam Ambassador, she should mind her own country’s business, not ours.”
“The Mexican ambassador is going to tell us what is in the best interest of Mexico,” Rosemary Jenks, the policy director at NumbersUSA, replied. “But that doesn’t mean we have to do it — we have to do what’s in the best interest of the United States. of American, of Americans and legal immigrants,” she said.
Jenks then went on to discuss the health risks of allowing migration to start up again in the middle of a pandemic, a fact that should be glaringly obvious to anyone with more than a single fully functioning brain cell.
Migration is just simply a bad idea right at the moment. We have to take care of our own nation first, and quite frankly, we can’t trust that those entering the country aren’t bringing more COVID with them.
Coqui wants the United States to grant amnesty to illegals from all over the world, again, something that isn’t really any of her business. Look, if we grant these folks amnesty, that’s encouraging others to break the law and come across the border without permission.
We want people coming in the front door, not sneaking through the back window. This is our country. It has borders and rules, just like someone’s personal residence. Those rules need to be respected if someone wants to enter our “house.” It’s not too much to act.
