From the Center:
Rahm Emanuel reminded us early in the Obama Administration that Progressives never let a “crisis go to waste . . . it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”
Government by continuing crisis, whether fact-based or by press release, is the Progressives preferred political strategy. The activists and their mainstream media allies hype a so-called crisis and then demand that the government “do something” about it. When that “something” fails, we are told that “it would have been worse” and we now must “do more.”
Unfortunately, Sen. Rubio, in pushing his Amnesty Bill, is playing the “do something” card to convince Americans that “legalization” of illegal immigrants must come before border security because “you have to do something with the people who are here illegally so we know who they are.”
Sorry, Sen. Rubio. We don’t have to “do something” about illegal immigrants other than enforce the existing law. We don’t have to “know who they are” unless it is to arrest and deport them.
