We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I watched this show, as I try to watch all of Tucker's shows, and his segment with the Democratic Congresscritter was no different from most of the lefties he interviews. They throw out some platitudes with no specifics. They are just examples of how the "liberal" (not the classical liberal) appeal is purely emotional.
Democrats do not want to have discussions involving facts. The only want decisions made based on emotional arguments. I'm still a bit flabbergasted at the number of liberal judges who use this type of stuff to push agenda-driven politics.
Laws are laws. If you are here illegally, you are at risk of deportation. Doesn't matter if you are a baby, a teenager or have lived here for 20 years. If you are not a legal resident of this country, we can deport you.
It is up to Congress to fix the gaps in our laws, if they think these are gaps. I think the law is pretty clear and doesn't need fixing. What really needs fixing is controlling the border so we don't have more 'children' like this coming to the U.S.
So, in my world that would mean STRICT enforcement of immigration laws, labor laws, etc. and also strengthening the border with walls and more technology & people to keep illegal immigrants from getting here in the first place.
The Left is psychologically dependent on the idea that the demographics of this country will shift to favor them (by natural trends and by political policy design).
When something like this looks like it might alter that, they go off the rails, just as they did when their Hillary failed to carry the day like she (and all their news sources) said would happen. Cognitive dissonance creates madness.
