If there’s one thing that liberals and conservatives can agree on, it’s that we need security and safety in our country – primarily when it comes to immigration. The big difference between the two is our differing solutions to the problem.
It’s important to see these issues from the other perspective, so as painful as it is, we have to put our feet in the shoe’s of a conservative. From a conservative’s perspective, they see that a border wall will slow down the flow of illegal immigration. They want legal vetted immigration, even from Mexico as some will admit, as long as they follow the rules.
For obvious reasons, this is complete insanity because the one true answer to a secure nation and a secure border is simple: more sanctuary cities and to abolish ICE.
Liberals understand that we need more sanctuary cities – which are cities that don’t enforce immigration law on individuals living here without documentation. Nothing says safe and secure like letting thousands of undocumented and unregistered people live unchecked. Furthermore, we need to abolish ICE, which is the primary law enforcement agency that would interfere with the efforts of sanctuary cities.
As Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez famously said, it’s more important to be morally right than to be factually correct. The effects of undocumented immigration are irrelevant to the moral truth that we need to let as many of them in as absolutely possible.
