Amnesty is forever, enforcement is never.
Read this. The take home point that the Left is beginning to realize (emphasis added):
Giving Trump some policy changes and funding for the border wall, in exchange for citizenship for 1.8 million undocumented immigrants, is essentially trading a set of policies that can be reversed by future Democratic administrations for a citizenship grant that cannot be reversed by anyone. Even if Trump gets everything he wants on his immigration “framework,” he would still disappoint his core constituency on its most important issue.
Sound familiar? That’s right, you read it here first.
This truth is obvious to me – and as I said but would like to repeat for the record, if you are reader of EGI Notes you saw it here first – it’s obvious to the Left, and a few on the Right are catching on. But the bulk of the Right, including some Trump fanboys and Alt Right lulzers on the Far Right, still don’t get it. Trump and his team of inept heroes don’t get it, or if they do get it, they simply don’t care – which means that they are running a scam job, a fraud job, on their supporters.
There’s no excuse for this, no excuse for not realizing this, as this was the main flaw of Ronnie Raygun’s amnesty disaster – a disaster that the Right likes to mention but have not learned the right lessons from. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, my friends – “promises” of enforcement – meaningless. “Allocations” for a wall (at best a secondary feature of enforcement, by the way) and for more “border security” – worthless. Amnesty given to the Nightmarers – priceless for them, an immediate and tangible gain. Deporting the Nightmarers – priceless for us, an immediate and tangible gain.
No amnesty, never. Making the same mistake a second time, when the stakes are so high essentially invalidates any pretensions any of these heroes – including The God Emperor himself – have for being responsible leadership. And of the Alt Righters who buy into the “amnesty now, enforcement later” trade of the irreversible for the reversible, then they are as stupid as they accuse others of being.
