I Prefer “Illegal Invasion,” Myself

‘Unlawful Migration’ | The Weekly Standard

The White House is now using the phrase “unlawful migration” instead of the more commonly heard phrase “illegal immigration.” The new term is used in a readout of a phone call President Obama had yesterday with President Peña Nieto of Mexico.

“This afternoon President Obama spoke by phone with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto to discuss a regional strategy to address the influx of unaccompanied children coming from Central America, through Mexico, to the U.S.-Mexico border. The President noted that Vice President Biden will attend a regional meeting in Guatemala on Friday, June 20, to discuss the urgent humanitarian issue, and welcomed the opportunity to work in close cooperation with Mexico to develop concrete proposals to address the root causes of unlawful migration from Central America. He also discussed the United States and Mexico’s shared responsibility for promoting security in both countries and in the region,” the readout states.

Hey, I’ve got an idea, Bambi.  Stop promising them free entry and permanent residency.


About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. You know the rules; if you want more of something, subsidize it. If you want less of something, tax it.

    Which is happening here? Are we subsidizing illegal immigration, or taxing it?

    If you discover the answer to that question, you will be able to cipher out the intent of our ruling classless. My take? It’s all about the money.

    And they intend to make more money from them than from you. Well, power, which is the same thing.
