This October, diversity killed eight Americans, with twelve others injured. Sayfullo Saipov, age 29, plowed his rented Home Depot truck into pedestrians and cyclists in New York City. The deadly conveyance was not the truck, but political correctness or more exactly, “diversity”.
In 2010, Uzbekistani Saipov was the lucky recipient of a diversity visa, a program which allows 50,000 immigrants to enter America each year “from countries with historically low rates of immigration to the United States,” says the U.S. State Department website.
Back in 1990, the sitting president of the United States told a room of reporters and members of Congress, which included the author of the Immigration Act of 1990, Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts, “It is the most comprehensive reform of our immigration laws in 66 years. And nearly all Americans have ancestors who braved the oceans; liberty-loving risk-takers in search of an ideal. The largest voluntary migration in recorded history… and now we stand again before an open door – a door into tomorrow.”
So said Republican President, George H.W. Bush.
A majority of Republicans not only like standing before our border’s “open door”, they and their democratic friends across the aisle have worked diligently to tear that door off its hinges to use as a bludgeon against the people they allegedly serve – the American people.
Most contemptible of all, President Bush insisted Kennedy’s bill would “close the back door on illegal immigration.”
It was a lie that the bipartisan liars never dreamed a dormant, historical malignancy would brush the dust from its ancient garments and “brave the oceans” for an opportunity to murder Americans on the streets of their own cities.
Despite this uncomfortable reality, Washington’s bipartisan asshats in Congress and the courts condemn President Trump’s prudent travel ban and his rescinding of President Obama’s nightmarish “dreamer” policy.
Don’t blame Sayfullo Saipov or ISIS for the recent carnage in New York City. Put the blame where it belongs: the bipartisan, open-borders cabal in Washington D.C. A damned lie. A lie that came with unintended consequences.
