If This Is Ryan's Argument....He's Wrong!

Antle writes an essay exposing the 'immigration problem' in the (R) Party.  Along the way, he characterizes the Paul Ryan position thus:

...immigration affirms the truths we hold to be self-evident, particularly that all men are created equal and the unalienable right to the pursuit of happiness. The willingness of immigrants to come here is a testament to the success of those principles....

Let's leave aside unbridled (illegal) immigration from the south, and the H1-B questions for the time; let's just run that argument vis-a-vis Muslims.

Short answer:  it's a loser. 

Muslims, assuming they are faithful to the Koran, do not believe a word of that 'all men...equal...' and 'right to the pursuit....' stuff.  A noticeable percentage don't believe in that 'right to life,' either.

Unfortunately for Speaker Ryan, a not-inconsiderable percentage of Muslims want to be ruled by Shari'a law, not the Constitution.

Give it up, Paul.
