John McCain: Illegals Might Go On A Murderous Rampage If We Enforce The Law

One of the champions of comprehensive immigration reform is actually publicly saying that he thinks illegals could start murderously rioting if we try to deport them,

McCain went back and forth with one audience member, who said he was upset that the immigration proposal before Congress is not tough enough. The man told McCain that there were already adequate laws on the books — they just aren’t being enforced.

McCain said that was a misnomer.

“The old rules are not workable and enforceable,” he said. “We’ve certainly proved that over the last 20 years.”

Congress “failed you,” McCain said. “We passed a law in 1986 that said we’d give amnesty to some people and now we have 12 million more,” illegal immigrants.

The man wasn’t satisfied with McCain’s answer. He asked McCain why the U.S. couldn’t execute large-scale deportations, as he had heard they did in France and other countries.

The question seemed to pique McCain.

“In case you hadn’t noticed, the thousands of people who have been relegated to ghettos have risen up and burned cars in France,” McCain said. “They’ve got huge problems in France. They have tremendous problems. The police can’t even go into certain areas in the suburbs of Paris. I don’t want that in the suburbs of America.”

The thinking here, such as it is, is fascinating to behold.

First off, McCain admits that the old laws don’t work. But, why don’t they work? Because people like John McCain are strongly opposed to enforcing them. So, the solution to this problem, if you listen to people like McCain, is to put a new set of laws in place. Unfortunately, the problem with that sort of thinking is that the laws aren’t the problem, the problem is a lack of will to enforce them. So, all we’re really doing is creating a new set of laws that won’t be enforced either.

Then, bizarrely, McCain admits that Congress failed America by passing an amnesty. But, his solution to that failure, is to pass another amnesty.

From there, we go on to McCain’s coup de grace. His rationale for not deporting illegals is that they might start burning cars, rioting, and attacking the police if we try to enforce the laws and the only way around that is to allow them to stay here permanently as Z visa holders and/or American citizens?

Really?

So in effect, McCain wants to permanently ensconce an illegal population in our county that he sees as the equivalent of the “Muslim youths” in France? Does that make any sense at all? You know, they might lash out in a murderous rage if we try to make them do something they don’t want to do, so let’s keep them here permanently rather than risk making them mad?

That doesn’t exactly seem to be sound logic…

I consult for the Duncan Hunter campaign.
