Enforcing U.S. Immigration Laws Is Killing #UndocuJoy Or Something

Font Size:

I respect anybody who comes to the United States legally. Legally. If you’re willing to devote the time and effort it takes to become a U.S. citizen, I don’t care what you look or sound like, or what religion you practice, or anything else. I’m proud to have you as a fellow citizen. And: If I moved to another country and wanted to stay there, I’d be expected to follow their rules and laws. That’s why they’re called rules and laws.

If you’re not here legally, though, you’re not going to guilt me into pretending laws don’t apply to you. This is not going to work:

That’s right. If you think immigration laws actually count, you’re harshing the #UndocuJoy of these wonderful people. You’re denying their very humanity.

Hold on a second. What Jose Antonio Vargas is saying here, the underlying premise of his argument, is that only the residents of the United States of America can be considered human beings.

But when I say it…

The modern left wants us to believe two contradictory things, simultaneously: America is the worst country in the world, and the worst thing you can do is kick somebody out.

#UndocuJoy. Seriously.

Guess what? Other countries have laughter too. They have rivers and dreams and other good things as well. Billions of people all over the world have lived rich, full lives without ever setting foot in the United States. They’re people too.

I’m sorry your country of origin sucks, but it’s not my fault. I’m not denying your humanity by reminding you that you cut in line. All the slick logos and treacly videos in the world won’t change the fact that you’re breaking the law.

You want me to “Define American”? Here you go.

I hope ICE is paying attention to this. These undocumented immigrants illegal aliens are all begging to be deported. If you’re going to jump up and down and yell that you’re in another country illegally, don’t act surprised when you’re escorted out.
