American Jewish Committee and Hispanic group lobbying for illegals
Leaders of the Jewish and “Latino” (pronounced LatEEnoh) communities are now working together for open-borders. According to a press release from the American Jewish Committee, those wonderful folks who strove for 40 years to open up America’s borders on an equal basis to every country on earth and finally succeeded in 1965, the Virginia Coalition of LatEEnoh Organizations and the AJC are lobbying the Virginia legislature to oppose several measures that would “deny immigrants admission into college and in-state tuition.” Of course we know, though the press release doesn’t say so, that the question of getting in-state tuition only comes up in relation to illegal aliens, which means that the press release is misleadingly describing illegal aliens as “immigrants.” The statement continues: “Our mission is to reach out in favor of opportunity and to oppose bills that seek to demonize immigrants.” Got that? If you seek to deny illegal aliens the rights of American citizens, then you are “demonizing immigrants.” People who use language in this way are not dealing in good faith, do not respect the laws and Constitution of the United States, and are plainly seeking to destroy the very idea of American citizenship and of a coherent American nation—that same nation that welcomed Jews here and provided them with the safest home they have ever known. For its subversive policy and rhetoric, for its miserably ungrateful attitude toward this country, the Virginia AJC deserves to be criticized and confronted in the strongest terms. Andrew Mack of the AJC, the author of the press release, can be reached at 202-256-1077.
