Democrat after Democrat at the House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing said, with great solemnity, “No one is above the law.”
No one except illegal immigrants, they meant.
The Democratic Party is the party of Sanctuary Cities and Sanctuary Cities = Open Borders. If you refuse to deport anyone, and you accommodate illegals, you have dismantled your borders.
A related case: New Jersey is controlled by Democrats. Multi-millionaire Gov. Phil Murphy, a graduate of the politically potent Goldman Sachs investment firm, just signed a bill permitting “undocumented residents” [that means illegals] to be able to get driver’s licenses, which they had not been able to get because they are, well, illegal and people here illegally are not usually granted benefits.
This heart-tugging account on NJ.com describes the problems some illegals have in getting to their jobs. What it neglects to say is that illegals are barred from working in this country. It also doesn’t say that some number of them operate cars anyway, breaking another law as they drive to the jobs they should not have, which many obtained using false Social Security numbers, which breaks another law, but, really, who’s counting?
No one is above the law?
Legal immigrants are allowed to work and can get a driver’s license. The new law affects no legal residents. Illegal enablers and the media pretend legal and illegal are the same. They are not.
The story also reports that the driver’s licenses will help other people, such as the elderly, veterans, ex-cons and trans people, whose problems could have been resolved without opening the door to illegal behavior.
The bill requires proof of name, age and residency in New Jersey to get a license,
In NorthJersey.com, Murphy was quoted as saying the bill “is a simple recognition that our immigrant communities, each of you, are a vital part of our state and our economy.”
Here’s my edited version of what he should have said: The bill “is a simple recognition that our illegal immigrant communities, each of you, are a vital part of our state and our economy, when you bother to pay payroll taxes.
He went on to admit “many immigrant residents are already behind the wheel” — an astonishing admission that the state knows they are breaking the law and the response is to . . . change the law.
No one is above the law?
If we are going to change the law to accommodate automotive lawbreakers, what happens when they start robbing banks, because they need money? Change that law, too?
The simple-minded Murphy said “you haven’t been asking for special treatment.”
But of course they have. They have been demanding that the law be changed for them, for the rest of us to accept their notion that when they arrive here illegally they should be treated the same as those who stupidly followed the rules, waited their turn and paid the fees required to secure a green card.
Some of this is hard to believe.
In a published account, an illegal supposedly on her way to a community meeting with Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney was stopped by police who impounded her car. She was driving without a license and insurance.
“We made arrangements for her to get her car released and have someone who’s a licensed driver pick up the car,” Kenney said. “Her car is now insured and registered, and her car is legal and it is out of custody.”
Is this the Democrats idea of no one is above the law?
