This is what the left has believed all along. Nancy Pelosi should be praised for having the courage to come right out and say it.
Nancy Pelosi recently told Telemundo that violations of immigration law should no longer have any consequences:
“Our view of the law is that it — if somebody is here without sufficient documentation, that is not reason for deportation.”
This wasn’t just a verbal flub; her spokesman reiterated the point, saying her comment was merely “a restatement of her long-held belief that being an undocumented immigrant is not a basis for deportation.”
No matter how big of an idiot Nancy Pelosi may be, this is the official view of the House Minority Leader and it isn’t happening in a vacuum.
This represents the current position behind Obama’s unilateral legislative moves which decriminalize being an illegal alien. And that’s the Europeanization of American immigration policy to favor the “right” of migrants over the right of natives.
Pelosi didn’t just randomly say this. Note the lawyer-like phrasing, “sufficient documentation” minimizing the lack of legal status to incomplete documentation. This concludes the process that began with outlawing the terms illegal alien and then illegal immigrant until we’re finally left with undocumented immigrant. And now we’ve got partially undocumented immigrant.
This isn’t just about votes. It’s not even just about borders. Borders are the physical embodiment of nationhood. If a nation doesn’t have borders, then it doesn’t control territory and then it doesn’t really exist.
And that’s the endgame for the transnational left. Illegal migration is a way of achieving the legal pluralities necessary for dismantling nations.
