Because as We All Know, the Cure For Cancer is More Cancer

Sean Hannity is an idiot and a sell-out:
We've gotta get rid of the immigration issue altogether. It's simple for me to fix it. I think you control the border first, you create a pathway for those people that are here, you don't say you gotta go home. And that is a position that I've evolved on. Because you know what—it just—it's gotta be resolved. The majority of people here—if some people have criminal records you can send 'em home—but if people are here, law-abiding, participating, four years, their kids are born here ... first secure the border, pathway to citizenship ... then it's done. But you can't let the problem continue. It's gotta stop.
 While the time is past to actually solve the immigration problem, seeing as how kicking all the immigrants—legal and otherwise—that have moved to America over the last forty years are rather sizable in number and would offer more than a little resistance, it is incredibly foolish to advocate for a policy that makes the problem of immigration worse. As has been noted by several commentators more astute than those here at Le Cygne Gris, it should not be surprising that immigrants from totalitarian cultures end up electing, when given the opportunity to vote (in multiple districts, even), people who promise a totalitarian government. It’s analogous to liberals who mess up their home states move away once the mess becomes intolerable, and then begin electing people to implement the very same policies that just failed in the state they left.

More to the point, while Sean is correct in noting that immigration, whether legal or illegal, has significantly altered the American electorate, his solution is completely terrible. More immigration, and absolution for illegal immigrants will only make the problem worse because it will speed up the rate of the federal government’s transformation into a completely totalitarian state. The more sensible approach would be to buy time by slowing down the demographic shift, thus allowing freedom lovers (white anglo-saxon protestant middle-aged males) to solidify regionally. The federal government will eventually collapse under its own weight, as all totalitarian governments eventually must, and then the country will be left to reform itself into smaller, regional states based on demographic alliances. Allowing foreigners to move in en masse undermines freedom by enabling totalitarian-minded foreigners to go everywhere spreading their gospel, so to speak. Capping immigration, then, improves the odds that some regions of the country will have a freedom-oriented population. And thus, since Sean Hannity advocates for a policy that hinders liberty, it should be obvious that he is either stupid or a sell-out.

  1. On a related note, Corruption Capital in the communist state to your west stresses the importance of having all drivers licensed, including "undocumented" immigrants.

    PS: Simon, glad to see you opened shop again. Had me worried that you evaporated for some unfortunate reason.
