Krauthammer: Bipartisan Immigration Reform Is "Highly Misleading" & Will Cause "Instant Legalization"

Charles Krauthammer appeared on Fox News to discuss his views on the “misleading” — ‘bipartisan’ ‘immigration’ ‘reform’ bill — which would effectively legalize millions of undocumented guests. If passed into law, the measures would lead to trillions more in entitlement spending and would solidify the allegiance of a key demographic in the Democrat Party.
Since Democrats (and virtually only Democrats) run the schools, the universities and the media, these new documented residents will be taught nothing about our system of Constitutionally limited government. Instead, they will be inundated with foreign-language ads telling them to go on food stamps and other awesome government programs that will lock them into dependency and servitude to the Democrat Party in perpetuity.
Although something should be done about the
illegal extra-legal immigration issue, it should start with enforcing the laws on the books, behaving like a normal country with borders, and modernizing the legal immigration system. No one is talking about mass deportations and midnight knocks, or shooting border crossers on site — that is just inhumane, to say the least.
Since the lawless Obama administration is now writing its own laws, why even bother passing “bipartisan legislation” with such a duplicitous party? The president has the legal authority to seal off the borders now and to insist on citizen requirements for entitlement programs, but he refuses to carry out such prudent policies. Better to concentrate on holding the president accountable than to pass laws that will only be half-enforced, it they are enforced at all.
