A few days ago a woman in North San Diego County awoke to find a stranger standing at the foot of her bed. She screamed and the man bolted. He was subsequently arrested and the officer found a half-eaten quart of ice cream, taken from the woman’s freezer, in his car.
Now imagine if this situation had gone like this…
“What are doing in my house?”
“I like your house.”
“I don’t know you! Get out of my house!”
“I deserve to be here. I am not leaving. In fact, I have already put my clothes in the bedroom closet.”
“I am calling the Police!”
“Oh, by the way, when you go to the grocery store, buy some ice cream. I ate what was in the freezer. We’re out.”
Jeh Johnson, the Obama appointed Secretary of the Homeland Security Administration thinks all 11 million illegal immigrants deserve a chance to stay in the country and become full-fledged citizens, despite having clearly demonstrated contempt for our laws.
“It is also, frankly, in my judgment, a matter of who we are as Americans,” said Johnson, speaking to the U.S. Conference of Mayors held in Washington DC. “To offer the opportunity to those who want to be citizens, who’ve earned the right to be citizens, who are present in this country…”
In his mind, successfully evading ICE and acting like you belong here ‘earns’ you the right to stay.
So if we follow the reasoning of the Secretary of HSA, the guy who fled the bedroom, jumped in his car and was unfortunate enough to get got caught with a half empty ice cream container would have been much better off to pull up a chair in front of the TV and make himself at home.
He earned his way into the family, didn’t he?
