It’s hard to determine what’s more galling: giving people who came to this country driver’s licenses after we finally plugged that national security hole post 9/11, or a group of illegal economic opportunists putting themselves on par with people who have suffered the tyranny of despots.
I say this is a jump gall.
The organization that purports to speak for illegal aliens in Oregon, CAUSA, is calling the annual May Day show of force (see post nearby) the “Latino Spring.”
The word that set the tone and gave meaning to a movement, “Prague Spring”– the (momentary) thawing of the authoritarian Soviet rule in Czchoslovakia in 1968–and which was misused during the disastrous “Arab Spring,” is being misused again by the La Raza set.
In order for there to be a “Spring” there has to be a “Winter,” a tyrannical crackdown on the rights of citizens which sets off a rebellion. A government or military force that stomps citizens’ freedoms by the heel of a jack boot. How can a collection of people rebel against the lack of freedom and rights if they’re not people who would ordinarily enjoy those rights anyway? Because, after all, isn’t the first requirement that you be a citizen? If the government moved against a person’s rights, doesn’t it connote you’re entitled to those rights in the first place? If Latinos who are illegally in the US believe our government is a tyrannical force, shouldn’t they flee?
Against which tyrannical force would the “Latino Spring” be rebelling? A country which they broke the law to get into? Don’t you usually run AWAY from the tyrannical forces not TOWARD them? And what tyranny would they be pointing to, the rule of law? Our need for national security or orderly immigration policies?
Using the “spring” moniker is almost as insulting as the illegal alien lobby’s demand for citizenship of people who jumped the line in front of a bunch of doctors and scientists who have waited patiently to receive their citizenship.
They broke the law to be here, undoubtedly committed identity fraud to become employed, and have just won the privilege of getting United States ID–an Oregon driver’s license– in a country that has done nothing but look the other way during the commission of all these crimes.
Against what governmental tyranny would they be rebelling? One of their own making.
The immigration system is in need of a 100,000 mile overhaul but that overhaul should be done by citizens, not this annual extortion.
CAUSA is advertising the fact that Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber is expected to sign the illegal alien drivers license bill during the “Latino Spring” march and rally.
Oregon State House has passed SB833–Oregon’s Driver’s Card Bill. It will be signed into law by Governor Kitzhaber at a ceremony at May Day in Salem at 11am
And the Democrats running this country and this state have only one thought in mind: get those future voters to the polls muy rapido.
