H/T National Review
Here’s a man who is the highest law enforcement authority in the country who thinks that the civil right of citizenship should be given to anyone who wants it or can sneak into the country and steal it.
“The way we treat our friends and neighbors who are undocumented by creating a mechanism for them to earn citizenship and move out of the shadows transcends the issue of immigration status. This is an issue of civil and human rights.”
Holder made this incoherent (but politically correct sounding) proclamation in a key note address to MALDEF (a special interest lawfare group) last night.
As the National Review says here:
So, the chief law-enforcement officer of the United States of America asserts that receiving amnesty for breaking the nation’s laws is a civil right. This is at once astonishing and surreal: the rule of law in subordination to political imperative. What other violations of law are excusable as a civil right? If the rule of law is as malleable as Holder’s statement suggests, should Dzhokar Tsarnaev be amnestied for his violations? If not, where does Holder draw the line and why?
