USA Advertises in Mexican Media That Self-Deported Illegals Are Welcome to Return
Maybe our rulers aren’t deliberately displacing the American population with people more likely to support collectivist authoritarianism. Maybe they are just utterly insane:
As part of a legal settlement that will allow some illegal immigrants who deported themselves from Southern California to return to the United States, the federal government has agreed to advertise the settlement on various Mexican and Spanish-language media outlets.
The problem with the self-deportation approach favored by Romney is that liberals will actually go out of their way to reimport the self-deported, as if we had such a shortage of illegal aliens that not a single one could be allowed to slip back into Mexico.
The ACLU filed a class-action lawsuit last year on behalf of eleven illegal immigrants who deported themselves. The settlement reached on Wednesday will only cover “longtime California residents with relatives who are U.S. citizens and… young migrants whose parents brought them into the country illegally” who deported themselves between 2009 and 2013. An ACLU official has indicated that there were nearly 250,000 people who were “deported voluntarily from Southern California between 2009 and 2013” and estimated to the Los Angeles Times that the “number of repatriations could reach into the hundreds or thousands.”
The US taxpayer, as always, picks up the tab for the left-wing lunacy.
The U.S. government, through ad buys online, in print, on billboards, and on radio stations, will hope to reach “friends and family of the affected class” in Southern California and Mexico. According to the settlement, the federal government will advertise on television channels like Univision, ESPN Deportes, MundoFox, El Universal, and the Univision Deportes Network. They will also partner with People en Espanol and even the Mexico National Football Team in addition to placing billboards “in high population Mexican border cities of Tijuana, Tecate and Mexicali, as well as focusing placements near border crossings.”
The inevitable effect on the attitudes of any Mexicans who would like to venture north to climb aboard the welfare gravy train but worry about getting deported is obvious and probably intended. In light of campaigns like this one, no one could possibly think our rulers take American law, American sovereignty, or American self-interest seriously.
