Caravan Response Highlights Extent Of Progressive Hypocrisy
So many illegals are pouring over the border that Immigration Services are releasing the throngs onto American streets.
Local authorities are being asked to assist in the care of these undocumented transients.
But shouldn't enlightened progressives be outraged at this policy request?
They, after all, tossed conniptions at Sheriff Joe Arpaio taking it upon himself to enforce federal laws that were not.
The vigilante patriots of the Minute Man Project were condemned for doing nothing more than monitoring the border and reporting violations to law enforcement.
Activists are lamenting that the holding area for the horde of illegals swarming over the border resembles a concentration camp.
But unlike the case of the historical facilities alluded to, no one was forced into the ones the United States is accused of administering in this instance.
No goons banged down the doors of these people and dragged them here.
How many making these complaints are going to grant these migrants shelter in the gated communities from whence those making these sorts of allegations usually ensconce themselves with luxuries they would deny those deemed less enlightened in terms of espoused ideology?
