Before his death, conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer recorded a video for Prager University that brought two components of the illegal immigration debate together. He wanted to build a wall and take other measures to prevent illegal immigrants from entering the country. Simultaneously, he wanted to grant non-citizen legal status to the 11 million illegal immigrants already here.
This pragmatic view has been hard to push because both sides of the political aisle are generally unwilling to compromise in such a fashion. Republicans don’t want to grant legal status to those who entered the country illegally and Democrats don’t want to do anything to stop the flow of illegal immigration.
I do not personally endorse Krauthammer’s plan, but I appreciate it and would actually consider it further if this were ever brought to the table as a real possibility. On one hand, it’s accepting defeat; those who entered illegally and have no business being here would be rewarded. On the other hand, if that’s what it takes to prevent more people from coming here illegally, so be it.
Though the sides are far apart on these issues, I see it as more likely the Republicans would go for legalizing those already here before Democrats would accept much stronger border security.
Krauthammer didn’t see his plan realized in his lifetime, but perhaps we can see it materialize in the near future.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
