Unethical Quote Of The Month: Senator Elizabeth Warren

“We should not be criminalizing mamas and babies trying to flee violence at home or trying to build a better future. We must pass comprehensive immigration reform that is in line with our values, creates a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants including our DREAMers, and protects our borders.”

—Massachusetts Senator and Democratic Party chief (no pun intended) demagogue Elizabeth Warren

I was excoriated on Facebook earlier this year for suggesting that Democrats and progressives now support open borders but just don’t have the guts to be honest about it. Of course, there is no other explanation for the behavior of the House and Democrats—as well as the news media that now works for them—regarding the illegal immigration issue except stealth institution of an open borders policy.

Thus, in a perverse way, we should all be grateful for Elizabeth Warren for revealing her considered calculation–she’s a Harvard prof, remember, so she must be smart—that a declaration of support for this suicidal policy is what the Democratic “base” craves.

However, the statement (more here) is so flagrantly self-contradictory and dishonest that it makes you want to plotz, as Woody Allen would say, and the fact that a law professor would endorse a Bizarro World system in which an act is illegal or not depending on one’s motive for breaking the law shows just how brazen, cynical and untrustworthy this woman is. The entire statement is calculated to both make people dumber and to exploit those who are critically impaired intellectually already.

How can the borders be protected if anyone can cross them without fear of consequences, and the U.S. has removed the law that sends a clear message, “Don’t do this!”? And how spectacularly dishonest must a politician be to use the transparently meaningless and deceptive cliché  “comprehensive immigration  reform” in this context?

It is arrogant; it is insulting; it is fick-level unethical, as in

“I’m lying right to your faces! Of course I’m not talking about reform, you gullible fools, I’m talking about letting anyone into the country and then letting them be citizens as fast as possible so they can vote for me and other Democrats who promise them stuff!! I’m not really interested in reforming immigration laws; I want to end them entirely! This is doubletalk, but the news media will endorse it, and you’ll swallow it, because I can play you ignorant dolts like a mandolin! HAHAHAHAHAHA!”

This is truly an awful, unprincipled and dangerous woman. I’d take Hillary Clinton over Senator Warren in a heartbeat.

  1. “We should not be criminalizing mamas and babies trying to flee violence at home or trying to build a better future.

    An argument that asylum restrictions should be minimized, ok.

    We must pass comprehensive immigration reform that is in line with our values,

    Arguably, filthy detention camps are against our values, and lawful asylum seekers should be able to avoid these camps

    creates a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants

    Inexcusably vague. What “undocumented immigrants”? Those who have been here X years? Any one who successfully crosses the border under any circumstances.

    including our DREAMers,

    Most sympathetic, for sure.

    and protects our borders.”

    How do you protect the border AND screen in lawful asylum seekers AND screen out all others unlawfully attempting to cross the border WITHOUT facilities to detain and process persons at the border?

    • I consider myself pretty liberal about immigration policy, but it seems to me there must be some ground rules that must be agreed upon before any debate on policy can even be had, among them:

      1. That the United States is a sovereign nation with the right to set its own policies about immigration.

      2. That in setting its policy, the United States is entitled to consider its own best interest first.

      3. That inherent in the right to set policy is the right to effectively enforce that policy.

      When Warren shows me she understands and accepts these foundational rules, then I will start listening to her proposals.

  2. Liz is a demagogue. She knows what she is saying and doing. She does not care about the consequences. She is relying on the emotional and intellectual weaknesses of her audience.

  3. When Theodore Roosevelt was police commissioner of NYC, he decided that he would enforce the unpopular Sunday alcohol laws that bar owners tried to get around, up to and including bribing police officers to look the other way. Sometimes arrests resulted in hardships for families that depended on the breadwinner.

    “I do not deal with sentiment. I deal with the law. How I might act as a legislator or what kind of legislation I should advise has no bearing on my conduct as an executive officer charged with administering the law.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt.

    Warren is not an executive – yet – and, yes, she is a legislator so she does have the right to advocate for certain types of legislation, but she has the responsibility not to rely on sentiment to determine what laws we should have.

  4. When will someone ask the question whether the undocumented have any impact on the number of House members that are allocated to each state?

    The answer is YES.

    The number of House members and ultimately Presidential electors will be determined by the 2020 census. The undocumented do not need to vote to get representation when districts are determined by the number of residing in a given are.

    California, Texas and Florida and New York if given enough new legislators by virtue of undocumented populations will ultimately make the Electoral College system and the concept of being a republic moot.

  5. How can the borders be protected if anyone can cross them without fear of consequences, and the U.S. has removed the law that sends a clear message, “Don’t do this!”? And how spectacularly dishonest must a politician be to use the transparently meaningless and deceptive cliché “comprehensive immigration reform” in this context?

    According to what I have read, she proposes making an illegal border crossing a civil cause of action for the USA rather than a criminal offense. Which is to say, remove the threat of law enforcement and make it effective open borders without actually having to say so. “Let the civil courts handle it!” they say, understanding that civil offenses make detention impossible, and in cases where the illegal immigrants aren’t detained, they simply don’t show up for court criminal court hearings.

    Does anyone believe they’ll show up for a civil court? Nah, and neither do the Democrats.

    How long will it take for terrorists to recognize that they can enter the USA anytime they want, without fear of getting tied up in the criminal system if Warren’s wish comes true? Not long, I expect.

    The Democrats are willing to gamble that the emotional reaction for the poor “migrants” (not to mention the votes they produce for the Democrats) will overcome America’s sorrow at seeing their own citizens maimed and killed by terrorists, gangs, and other miscreants who flood into America under such a policy.

    Since when did it become an American value to endanger the lives of its own citizens by placing the interests of the citizens of other countries above our own?

  6. I just can’t believe how blatant Elizabeth Warren is in saying whatever her base wants to hear. She can’t go two weeks without proposing some Oprah-style give away: free college, free health care, reparations for not just black people but gay people, Green New Deal, packing the Supreme Court, eliminating the electoral college, open boarders… She goes so far beyond “a chicken in every pot” that she’s passing “and Santa Claus will bring you a pony!”

  7. With all the illegal immigrants working in the US I don’t recall seeing news of any employers being prosecuted and jailed for employing them. It seems to me that employers want illegals in the country so they can pay them low wages which in turn helps to keep wages of American citizens lower.
    I did a search of what happens here in New Zealand and I found a case in 2010 where three men were each sentenced to three years in prison for running an employment agency with a large number of illegal workers.

      • Not quite that easy.

        A few scams:

        1) open your own business. Go to your favorite “authentic” ethnic restaurant (or just pick a Mexican/Ecuadoran/Central American restaurant). What do you think the chances are that the owner is legal? It is easy for an illegal entrepreneur to open up a business and self employ; heck, the IRS will even give you an ID number so you can pay your taxes (just because you are illegally present and making money without work authorization does not mean you don’t have to pay your taxes).

        2) steal an ID. Many work under false names using a real SSN. Employer checks ID and SSN and has plausible deniability that they are employing someone legally. (And, heaven forbid you question someone’s documents because Sally Jones looks Mexican; that’s a lawsuit waiting to happen).

        (My personal bias: it is not the employer’s job to do the government’s job. Caveat: you hire illegals do you can pay them less than minimum wage or under the table; you SHOULD be prosecuted for THAT!)

        -Jut

        • We don’t prosecute hardly at ALL today: there are VERY few compared to the number of ‘day laborers’ I see hanging out waiting for a job EVERY DAY. Companies have no incentive to verify employees: they work for cash, off the books, and undercut American worker wages.

          Start somewhere, then work your way into the ‘problems’ you list above.

          • Well, we verify all our employees (nerdy law firm that we are).

            Someone came in, said she had authorization to work under DACA. We hired her. She came in, said her application was actually pending, we sent her home. A year later, she applied again, had work authorization, and she is still working for us. She is authorized to work, so, even if she should be deported, why should I not employ her simply because the politicians can’t figure out what to do with her.

            -Jut

            • She is authorized to work, so, even if she should be deported, why should I not employ her simply because the politicians can’t figure out what to do with her.

              Jut, you moved the goalposts, and provided a situation where a quirk in our crazy immigration system allows you to legally hire an illegal alien.

              This was a motte and bailey situation, where you objected to my point that we hold employers accountable where they break the law, then retreated to a situation where you were not breaking the law.

              My point, as you well know, is that reducing the ability to ignore these laws with impunity will slow the rate at which they are broken. Business are about risk mitigation. Make it personal and the risk matrix changes.

              Look, if someone wants to change the laws we have on our books, go for it. I might not agree with the changes, but if the rule of law is important to society, then we follow the laws we have, period. Otherwise we weaken our nation and slide into a totalitarian dictatorship (as most democracies have in the past) where prosecutorial discretion becomes persecution of the powerless/opposition/deplorables.

    • A democrat actually used rising wages as an argument AGAINST being tough on illegal immigration. The idea that economic forces, not government fiat, might improve wages was that foreign a concept.

  8. Just when you think you’ve enumerated all the ways that the presence of illegals harms this country; It’s apparently a very lucrative business to bring child sex-slaves to migrant camps, where they’re made to service 50 or more illegals a day, per child, in trailers that they set up in these camps.
