Democrats Opposed To Rule Of Law?

Are leaders of the Democratic Party opposed to the rule of law?

That appears to be the case if a report by The Hill is accurate.

In a report titled Dems: Wall is ‘opposite of what America stands for’, The Hill quotes Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) as saying, “The United States is the shining light of freedom, liberty, and prosperity to the world. We welcome all who are willing to work hard to achieve their American dream. A wall is the exact opposite of what America stands for.”

The Hill quotes freshman Congressman Ruben Kihuen (D-Nev.) as saying, “Stripping funding from cities like Las Vegas endangers the health and safety of all Nevadans and is a wrong-headed approach to a nuanced issue. Not all undocumented immigrants are ‘rapists’ and ‘criminals.’ I was once undocumented – now, I’m a member of Congress.”

The Hill quotes Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) as saying, “President Trump’s actions represent a hostility towards Mexico, one of our best friends and trading partners.”

The Hill quotes Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.) as saying, “Remember, this is a bully and he will continue to bully us if we just continue to put down our heads and walk home.”

Let’s cut to the chase.

President Trump is promoting the rule of law while the above-quoted Democrat members of Congress are promoting just the opposite.

President Trump wants to put a stop to the violation of the USA’s immigration laws. The above-quoted Democrats want people from other nations to get away with violating the USA’s immigration laws, especially if those people speak Spanish.

What do non-Hispanic Democratic Party leaders have to say about all of this? They are siding with the above-quoted Democrats.

One does not have to be a Conservative or a Republican to figure out that such Democrats are wrong to be opposed to the rule of law.

If Democratic Party leaders hate the USA’s immigration laws as much as the appear to, then they should introduce legislation that would repeal those laws.

Now, I agree – and have previously stated – that it would be unfeasible to build, maintain and effectively man an actual wall along the USA’s entire southern border. The need to protect that border is valid, but means of protecting it isn’t that simple.

However, it is one thing to say that Trump’s way of protecting the border won’t work. It is another thing to say that the border’s protection should not be improved, which is what Democratic Party’s leaders are implying.

Ask yourself this question: If Democrats are opposed to Trump’s way of improving border security, then what way do they suggest be implemented?

Also, in regards to Trump denying federal money to sanctuary cities, such sanctuary cities don’t have to exist in the first place.

Why should federal money be given to city governments that are opposed to the rule of law?

Folks, that is what this issue is all about – the rule of law.

As I see it, the Democratic Party has trouble telling the difference between foreigners who obey the USA’s immigration laws and foreigners who deliberately violate the USA’s immigration laws.

Why is the Democratic Party pandering to the latter? Inquiring minds want to know!

Trump Administration Is A Junior Varsity Team
Here Comes the Wall!

      Inquring minds want to know.

    Dems see illegals as allies. They see foreigners illegally voting as allies. They want as many as they can get. The left hates the law and sees it only as a weapon to punish their enemies while they ignore it to benefit their friends.

    0bama and holder waived the law if you were black and applied it harshly if you were conservative. They ran this country like it was a banana republic, which is exactly what the left wants to turn it into, Northern Venezuela.

      Illegals give states like California increased representation in the House because seats are allotted by total population, not by the number of citizens. What we need is to get the illegals out of this country before the next census, or somehow find a way to not count illegals in the House apportionment from the census.

      The people who say the wall doesn’t work haven’t asked or simply ignore Saudi Arabia or Israel about walls that work. The wall is only PART of the solution.

      We also need to be able to track and eject people who overstay their visas, and other abusers and violators of our laws. I still think that the perfect person to run such an operation is Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

      And Buzzfeed apparently thinks that hiring on the basis of skin color isn’t racist:

  • Sky__Captain

    Jay Leno once referred to illegal immigrants as “undocumented Democrats”.
    That answers the question.


    David, apparently you are guilty of being even-handed.

    • Far worse than that. He has earned progtard praise.

    • Retired military

      Apparantly being even handed is defined by Whos the Buster as asking questions with blatantly obvious answers.

      I give it 12 hours until he writes a hit piece on Trump.

      • Your crystal ball proved accurate.

      • Retired military

        Did I call it or did I call it . It took 16 hours but oooopppssss there it is.

      • Jwb10001

        You call that a hit piece? Damn that wouldn’t even leave a mark on a SJW snowflake.

    • Brett Buck

      He’s guilty of having no real position, standing for nothing, believing in nothing, and having nothing to say. To me, that’s worse than just being wrong.

      • Retired military

        Oh he has plenty to say. Initially. Then when challenged he doesn’t respond, goes away for a day or two, and writes another hit piece.

        • Brett Buck

          He writes a lot of words, that’s for sure. If we were grading on volume alone, he would win for sure. But the content is essentially 100% filler.

          After all, brevity is the soul of wit.

    “As I see it, the Democratic Party has trouble telling the difference between foreigners who obey the USA’s immigration laws and foreigners who deliberately violate the USA’s immigration laws.”

    No they dont.
    They simply want a new voter base to replace African Americans who are escaping their inner city traps.

    “Why is the Democratic Party pandering to the latter? ”

    Keep people on the govt tit and they will vote for you. Hard to beat the party of Santa Claus.

      The democrats that tell us endlessly we are racist, want to continue to trap Mexicans in servant caste to do menial jobs that Americans are above doing at below a living wage. They want cities to officially shield criminal illegal immigrants from the justice they deserve, leaving otherwise law abiding Mexicans and Americans at the mercy of these people. They want to allow potential terrorist to flood across an unsecure border along with their slave caste to do god knows what potential harm to their fellow citizens. How anyone can oppose a secure border along with reasonable immigration laws and policy is beyond me.

      • Retired military

        What is beyond me is David asking why democrats oppose a secure border and reasonable immigration laws and policies. It isn’t like they are hiding their motives.

    Sorta off topic but still connected.
    I really enjoy my morning coffee as I peruse DU every morning. GIves me joy in life. I just don’t see how those folks will be able to keep up the over the top hate, conspiracy theories, distortions and total break with reality for the next 8 years or so.

    • Rdm42

      Latest one I saw is that apparently publishing crimes committed by illegal aliens is just like what Hitler did to prime people for the holocaust.


      It seems the right, however, was able to do just that for 8 years.

  • For what it’s worth, I write my posts for more than one blog. The other that I write for has a much-larger Democrat audience than Wizbang has. The Democrats over there are always criticizing me for criticizing Democrats.

    Also, being fair and balanced isn’t a bad thing when one is blogging about politics. No political party has a monopoly on good stuff or bad stuff.

    By the way, I am not required to respond to every comment pertaining to me, even if such a comment is entertaining.

    That reminds me, I need to get more popcorn.

      By the way, I am not required to respond to every comment pertaining to me, even if such a comment is entertaining.

      Correction: You’re not required to respond to any comment pertaining to you because there is no rule here that requires moderator participation in the comments section. You are, nonetheless, morally obligated to respond to legitimate criticism whether in the comments section or in adjusting your views. In that regard, you fail miserably.

      You might reply that you find such criticism unpersuasive, but that is demonstrably untrue. When you repeat arguments without addressing legitimate objections, you do so because you know you cannot rebut them. Avoiding arguments you cannot rebut is dishonest, and that’s your problem. I’ve got no problem with a view that is held in good faith, even if it’s one I disagree with.

      This is a political blog, David, not dodge ball. It’s a pity you don’t realize that.

    • Scalia

      By the way, I don’t see your columns at The Moderate Voice. Did you change sites? If so, where?

    • Retired military

      You are under no obligation to respond back. Yet a response or two per thread would probably be at least more appropriate than your current style of throwing shit at a wall and then walk away to not even see if it will stick or not.

      Do you write to start a conversation or just to lecture people without defending your points at all (something that Obama would do).

      • Jwb10001

        Hey contributor status has consequences, he’s one you’re not, you can come along but you have ride in the back of the bus.

    • Scalia

      Ok, David. I was finally able to locate your columns at the other blog. After reading comment after comment by the liberal Kool-Aid drinkers, it’s no wonder this country is so messed up.
