[VIDEO] Hilarious Video Looks At Illegal Immigration Issue
With illegal immigration being in the news, as it usually is, we thought it important to explain why it is wrong by using an analogy that even Liberals could relate to.
Thankfully, Reality Always Wins created a cartoon that does this for us.
Keep in mind, the animation is not the greatest, and the voices do not exactly match the lips of the characters that are speaking, but it still makes a great point towards making the argument that illegal immigration is wrong.
What if breaking into someone’s house was treated like breaking into the country?
This cartoon examines that idea as an actual alien enters a man’s home and makes himself comfortable.
When the homeowner tries to give the alien the boot, a stuffy-shirted government bureaucrat comes in to tell him that it would be racist to send the aliens packing.
The homeowner counters by explaining that he’s fine with legal immigration, but just wants any visitors to his house to come in legally, like everybody else.
The argument simplifies the issue, and makes it easy to understand.
Still, after the video posted, there were some Liberals who became triggered at the notion of a country wanting to secure its borders as a homeowner would want to secure their home.
Their frustration seemed to be about the idea of a nation even having borders in the first place. Their argument was that (A) the United States is supposed to be a free country, and by limiting who can and cannot come inside is making the US into hypocrites and (B) the earth was made for all of mankind, and nobody “owns” it. Therefore, there should be no borders to keep people out who just want a better life for themselves.
Just taking them one at a time, the United States is a free country, but that does not mean that the people are free to do whatever they want. This is because the people, simply by living in the US, agree to adhere to the laws set down by an elected representative body of legislators.
Despite the actions of the Clintons, we are a nation of laws.
The “freedom” that Americans enjoy is spelled out in the Bill of Rights, and essentially come down to things that the government is forbidden to do to its people. As Barack Obama once defined the Bill of Rights, it’s a charter of negative liberties that say what the government cannot do to its people rather than a charter of positive liberties that say what the government should do on the people’s behalf.
As to the second point, that there should be no borders or land ownership in the United States, this is simply ridiculous because land ownership is an accepted practice among all mankind. You cannot put the genie back in the bottle on that one.
As much as Liberals would love to take another crack at getting their socialist utopia going, where nobody owns anything, it’s simply not going to happen.
In addition, people who want a better life for themselves are able to enter the United States, as long as they do so legally. Yes, it is time consuming, and yes, it takes effort, but it is worth it to be given the opportunity to assimilate to the greatest country on earth.
