“We al­ready see that in the move by blue states mostly to let il­le­gal im­mi­grants get driver’s li­censes and vote in mu­nic­i­pal elec­tions. Health ben­e­fits and col­lege schol­ar­ships are be­ing cre­ated specif­i­cally for il­le­gals, as if their un­law­ful ar­rival here makes them ex­tra de­serv­ing of tax­payer help. Tra­di­tion­ally, le­gal im­mi­grants had to be self-sup­port­ing or have a fi­nan­cial spon­sor. Now the un­in­vited are ex­pected to be de­pen­dent on gov­ern­ment sup­port,” writes New York Post colum­nist Michael Good­win.

“It has been ob­vi­ous for decades that the first or­der of im­mi­gra­tion busi­ness is se­cur­ing the bor­der so we can de­cide which peo­ple, and how many, come into our coun­try. Then the na­tion could turn to the trick­ier is­sue of those al­ready here. It is pro­foundly dis­heart­en­ing that we have not taken even that el­e­men­tary first step, and have in­stead made the prob­lem ex­po­nen­tially worse. So the pres­i­dent is do­ing the right thing by fight­ing for a se­cure bor­der, but no­body should be fooled into think­ing we are any­where near a so­lu­tion to the im­mi­gra­tion cri­sis,” he warns.
