Rush Limbaugh opposes amnesty. But he suggests a plan anyway:
How about the EIB El Rushbo amnesty plan. We give every illegal alien currently living in the country amnesty, and they can’t vote for 25 years. And we’ll see who is really interested in this. He-he-he-he-he.
It’s not funny, because that’s exactly what an amnesty bargain would look like. It’ll have goodies for everyone:
- For hopelessly deluded yahoos like me, mandatory E-Verify.
- For big business, cheap “guest” workers.
- For conservatives, probably a 15-year delay before a single illegal is able to vote.
It won’t be called a 15-year delay, but there’ll be something like a 10-year “temporary” work permit, followed by the ability to apply for permanent residency, AKA a Green Card. Green Card holders can usually apply for citizenship in 5 years.
- For liberals, the prospect of a permanent liberal majority after 15 years.
I’d be tempted to let this happen. Let the 18-29-year-olds who voted for Obama live with the consequences of their decision.
But I’d mourn the eventual loss of America, freedom’s last, best hope.
So a question for you:
