Debbie Wasserman Schultz: GOPers Want To Make Illegal Immigration A Crime Crime

Via Hot Air and Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin’s site, we find the latest buffoonery from DNC chair Debs WS, who fails to notice that illegal immigrants are, you know, already committing a crime

I think the president was clearly articulating that his position – the Democrats position – is that we need comprehensive immigration reform. We have 12 million undocumented immigrants in this country that are part of the backbone of our economy. And that is not only a reality but a necessity. And that it would be harmful if – the Republican solution that I’ve seen in the last three years is that we should just pack them all up and ship them back to their own countries, and that in fact it should be a crime and we should arrest them all. I mean that was the legislation that Jim Sensenbrenner advanced a couple of years ago.

See, illegal immigration isn’t actually a crime crime in her world. As Doug points out, there is a reason that “illegal” is usually put in front of “immigration” and “immigrant/alien,” because it’s/they are, well, you know, illegal. Violating the law. But, hey, these “undocumented workers” are the backbone of our economy, ya know, or some other idiocy like that. And it would be harmful if all these illegals were kicked out and stopped draining the money from hospitals, welfare agencies, and gave jobs back to Americans. Hilariously, Democrats have never figured out that they could replace all the menial jobs illegals perform with high paying unionized workers.

As Ed Morrissey writes

Maybe Rep. Wasserman-Schultz should familiarize herself with the law before attempting to change it, and certainly before she attempts to demagogue Republicans on the issue of crime and punishment as well as immigration.

I think Ed was going for the humor affect, rather than punditry, because asking Democrats to understand the law is like asking a 4 year old to fix car engine: neither will happen. These are the same people who want to pass and did pass laws that were unread and that they didn’t even understand.
