“What’s wrong with slavery?”
“If you are here without our permission, and we have given you two months to leave, and you’re still here, and we find that you’re still here after we we’ve given you the deadline to leave, then you become property of the State of Iowa, and we have a job for you. And we start using compelled labor, the people who are here illegally would therefore be owned by the state and become an asset of the state rather than a liability and we start inventing jobs for them to do.”
~ Jan Mickelson, a conservative Iowa radio host
You know, between this and stripping Americans of their citizenship, people like this have me wondering just how they are to be taken seriously. But indeed, they need to be because nonsense like this was actually implemented decades ago across the Atlantic in Central Europe. Forgive the touch to Godwin’s Law, but what this “conservative” is proposing is along the lines of the Nuremberg Laws by the Third Reich. This would involve expanding the power of the State, don’t kid yourself, that’s exactly what would happen. You would need a police state to effectively implement their mad plans.
Yes, I get it, their parents broke the law, they are technically “illegal aliens” or “illegal immigrants” or “undocumented immigrants” or whatever fucking term you want to use. They had “anchor babies,” but the US Constitution still holds supreme, these babies are Americans. Many of them have grown up and identified as Americans, as is their birthright! Are you going to tell me that an American, who just happened to be one of these babies decades ago, but has now served in our Armed Forces is now not an American? Bollocks on that.
Does our republic have a right to protect its borders? Sure, but please don’t act like none of you have your hands clean either. Get off your high horse if you think you are equally innocent. How many of you have continued patronized a restaurant that has employed these type of immigrants? How many of you have continued to shop at the stores that have had the lowest price in green goods? We’ve all taken advantage of the below-market priced labor. How many of you have purchased a newly-built home in the past 20 years? Now, they have children, who are Americans. Get over it. Birthright citizenship is very American (not to mention common in most of the Americas).
These individuals like this Mikelson character, proposing American versions of the Reich laws, are not who you think they are. They are incubators of a police state. When you think “illegal immigrants” you think Mexican, but news flash, they aren’t the majority of such types any longer. Here in Chicago, a good chunk are Polish or Eastern European. But here is the real dangerous part, once you remove birthright citizenship, then who is to say who is a “real American”? You think you are safe because you are say you are “white”? Don’t kid yourself, look at history. These so-called patriots are really hyper-statist wolves in masks. Strip a man of his citizenship, then his assets, once again look at history.
