Bonuses include a young Leon Panetta debuting his hairpiece and Charles Schumer debuting his lack of same; along with the recognition that the scam never changes. Not even the scammers change much.
It’s 1986 and there are a whole lot of Democratic Congressmen assuring us that amnesty for illegal aliens will help the economy, secure the border and make your teeth shinier than ever.
If we don’t pass illegal alien amnesty, millions of people in our towns and cities will be living in limbo, a sweaty Chuck Schumer rasps. Fortunately that problem was solved once and for all with the 1986 comprehensive immigration reform making such future pieces of legislation entirely unnecessary.
“It is not millions of people cascading across the border,” he assures us, “it might mean only 250,000 people cascading across the border. It is not welfare benefits for those folks immediately.”
And then it all ended happily ever after with millions of new illegal aliens living in limbo and a huge drain of social services.
And now we’re back fighting the battle of Comprehensive Immigration Reform against the Democrats and Republicans who put their cynical political gambits over the jobs and tax burdens of ordinary Americans.
Those who fail to learn from history repeat it again and again. But there’s only so many times we can repeat amnesty, before there is no border left and no country left.
