When the left can get people thinking border security and white supremacy go hand-in-hand, they win and America loses. That’s the narrative being pushed right now following the mass shooting allegedly committed by Patrick Crusius, a man who espoused white supremacist rhetoric.
Let’s be clear about one thing right up front: Border security and white supremacy do not go hand-in-hand. To say that would be like saying gun control advocates and Nazis were aligned because they both believed in confiscating firearms from the people. Are there white supremacists who want to secure the borders? Yes. Are there other Americans who are not white supremacists who want to secure the borders? Absolutely. In fact, the vast majority of people who recognize the need to defend our sovereignty and stop illegal immigration are not white supremacists.
Nevertheless, the narrative is being built right before our eyes that since Patrick Crusius is a white supremacist who believed in border security, anyone who believes in border security must be a white supremacist. This is a bald-faced lie. I am not a white supremacist. In fact, I’m not white. I am a legal immigrant who recognizes the people who are most hurt by illegal immigration are legal immigrants.
But the Democrats don’t like that narrative, so they ignore it. They want everyone who comes into the country regardless of what laws they broke to get here to be on equal footing with people like me who was born outside of the country and who came to this country through proper legal channels. To say we’re the same is an insult to those who chose not to break America’s laws in order to enjoy the benefits of being an American.
I am all in favor of robust legal immigration. I believe we should allow more immigrants to come to our country, but this is impossible as long as illegal immigration is so rampant. Should migrants be given an opportunity to claim asylum and build better lives here? Absolutely. But they must do so through the proper channels. They must go to a port of entry, claim asylum, and follow the process laid out to them by the United States government. To do otherwise is an instant offense against our sovereignty.
There is no excuse for Crusius’ actions, his alleged manifesto, or anyone who espouses white supremacy rhetoric. White supremacy as an ideology is an unAmerican as it gets. But close to white supremacy in the unAmerican category is belief in open borders. Both are blights on our nation and must be fought with everything we have.
The left wants border security and white supremacy to be seen as the same thing. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Who gets hurt the most by illegal immigrants? Americans who are legal immigrants. Border security is not white supremacy.
