THE BRILLIANCE OF MAYOR VILLARAIGOSSA
Posted by Andrew Roman on May 15, 2010
What the hell is Los Angeles mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa, talking about? Honestly, can someone with the facility to translate twaddle into English try and disentangle what the Mayor thinks he is trying to say? I’d love for someone to give it a shot.
It’s impossible to know what is behind the chasm that seems to have developed between the Mayor and his ability to think rationally, but it may be the inevitable result of a hyperactive leftist gene causing his moral bankruptcy to metastasize.
Either way, the device has yet to be built that can accurately measure the brilliance of his imitation of a half-wit.
On the heels of his city voting to Boycott Arizona because of that state’s tough new illegal alien enforcement law, Mayor Villaraigossa said that Los Angeles’ budget problem has nothing to do with illegal aliens. In fact, according to the Mayor, illegal immigration actually adds to the economic “might” of the entire State of California – and America.
Those are his words.
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa told CNSNews.com Thursday that illegal immigration has not contributed to his city’s budget problems, but, on the contrary, that illegal immigration adds to the “economic might” of California.
“In California, I think there’s a real sense that these immigrants provide a great deal to the economic might of the state,” said Villaraigosa.
Which begs the question: If illegal aliens are adding to the Sunshine State’s economic might – and America’s, for that matter – why are there any restrictions against them at all? Why all the talk about “comprehensive reform” and a “path to citizenship” when California’s problems can apparently be curtailed by simply affording the state the ability to bolster its economic might with an even greater infusion of illegals?
Can you imagine how much more out-of-control that state’s $18 billion budget deficit would be if the border was actually sealed? $25 billion? $50 billion?
One shudders at the thought of California free of illegal alien infiltration.
“Look, all of the studies show–and there have been many studies on this issue–that there are a lot of benefits to immigration, more benefits than there are detriments if you will,” Villaraigosa said.
How many times must it be said? There are a lot of benefits to legal immigration, Mr. Villaraigossa. Legal immigration.
“The fact of the matter is we have a broken immigration system. The fact of the matter is we need to secure our borders, while also providing a pathway for citizenship for the 12 million people, most of whom are working and contributing to the economic might of the nation,” the mayor said.
Seriously, what on God’s green Earth is he talking about?
Why is it necessary to “secure the border,” if America’s economic “might” is fuelled by illegal immigration?
People are leaving California as never before. The state is bankrupt. And yet, somehow, illegal aliens are contributing to the state’s “might”?
I’ll have what he’s smoking.
