The only thing that would make liberals consider illegal immigration a problem is if it could somehow be attributed to Vladimir Putin. From Ann Coulter at anncoulter.com:
Only if Putin owns up to deploying a vast network of Russian assets to personally direct the movements of millions of illegal aliens across the Sonoran Desert, through dozens of checkpoints and into our country, in fulfillment of his master plan to attack America’s financial viability, national security and future prospects, will the media, the Democratic Party and corporate Republicans ever emerge from their stupor and admit that we have a huge problem on our southern border.
Illegal immigrants have killed multiple times more Americans than Russia has in its entire history — or could ever hope to kill, even with a well-placed nuclear bomb.
But nothing will be done, unless we can prove Putin is behind it.
Our media and government want you to fixate on Russia’s annexation of Crimea as the big problem facing our country, hoping you’ll forget about the gaping hole on our border.
I haven’t counted to see how many Americans died as a result of Putin’s reacquiring Crimea — yes, I have! ZERO. Meanwhile, Mexican drug couriers kill more Americans every week than the Communist Soviet Union did when it shot down Korean flight 007 for flying into its airspace, almost starting a nuclear war.
Obsessing over irrelevant, unsolvable problems in remote parts of the globe is how liberals prove they are intellectuals. North Korea, Syria, Russia — that’s what you’re supposed to care about. Not your own country. Only Walmart shoppers care about their own country.
It would be as if in 1939, as the Nazi threat was looming, British newspapers discussed nothing but the bushfires in Victoria, Australia. How many died? Do they need our help? What shall we do? Where does the prime minister stand?
