Caravan or Invasion?

Like any other linguistic controversy the left creates, the word “invasion,” used to describe the caravan of migrants who have set out to invade the United States, has been deemed off limits by the PC police. So let’s compromise and call it a caravan of invaders. That’s exactly what it is.

It seems to happen every few years or so and whether or not it’s organized by George Soros or some other far left operative is not certain. But once it starts Democrats begin creating controversy, knowing they have the liberal media and other bleeding hearts to plead the case of amnesty for these poor souls who did nothing wrong but invade our country.

We hear the same thing every time, they’re coming here to seek asylum from their respective insufferable countries. But those who are coming from Central America must travel through Mexico first, so why do they not seek asylum there? Because they’re not really seeking asylum, they’re seeking the benefits and comforts of living in America.

The controversy created by the left is really an attempt to revisit the conversation on “immigration reform” in order to push a careless, ill-advised amnesty bill through the House and Senate. This way Democrats get the voters they need to give them never-ending government control and Republicans get cheap labor.

Time and again the American people have rejected amnesty in any and all forms. Not only is it a serious threat to our national security, it’s also a slap in the face to all those who waited in line and went through the process of doing it the right way, the legal way.

As I’ve been writing for years, the United States already has a system of legal immigration. We don’t need a new system and we definitely don’t need comprehensive immigration reform. We just need a stronger commitment of enforcement.
