On "Immigration Reform"
A little background;
My sister is a big lib...self-avowed socialist, left of Lenin (by her own admission). She has been trying to immigrate to Canada for a bit over a year, with little progress (there is a good reason that Canada doesn't want her, but this is not the place for that).
She has been blathering on about how the new proposal doesn't go far enough, that we (the US) should have open borders, free health care for everybody; this country sucks...blah, blah, blah.
So I asked her why she hasn't moved to Canada yet....
Long silence........then she starts on another rant about how crappy this country is.
So I asked her again if this country is so crappy, why isn't she in Canada; she gives me the yadayada about a long and arduous immigration policy; so I ask her why she doesn't just MOVE there...she's so big on open borders; just move there. What does she need PERMISSION for?
She told me that it wasn't the same thing. That if she just moved there without a visa and the like, that she could be deported.
Exactly, I said.
Some folks just have more money than good sense.
