Most of you are probably aware of Governor Christie’s decision to reward illegal aliens yet again by signing a statewide DREAM Act into law, although this has obviously been overshadowed in recent days by another prominent news item revolving around the governor of the Garden State. Although there’s no link between Bridgegate and the latest sop to la raza activists, the two do share some similarities in the sense that both display the contempt public officials have for ordinary citizens, as well as the venality and political opportunism at the heart of legislating-both at the state and federal level.
Mark Krikorian wrote an incisive blog entry for National Review Online earlier this month on another highly publicized victory for illegal aliens, the decision to award Dreamer Sergio Garcia a law license, which delineates the philosophical chasm between those of us who view America as a distinctive, sovereign nation and those like Governor Christie, Governor Jerry Brown, and their allies in the open borders movement, who view it merely as a place where people live-regardless of allegiance. It’s well worth reading, as is an op-ed by Bill Winkler which points out the huge human cost that legislative acts like those taken in New Jersey and California, and extraconstitutional edicts issued by the Obama administration, have on ordinary American families trying to eke out an existence in this torpid economy.
These are the stories that are being swept under the rug by a news media which is unwilling to grapple with the huge problems that their support for open borders impose upon Americans who don’t have the mobility or resources to insulate themselves from mass immigration’s most baleful effects.
