I think Z has this pretty well. The essay begins on a not-really-related topic, but he gets around to the Immigration Question and says a mouthful.
....No one would oppose a small, limited amnesty for some illegal
invaders, who have been here for a long time. As long as it comes with
tough measures to limit further invasions and protections against future
backsliding on the issue. Trump’s wall creates a permanent lobby in
Washington in favor of border protection. Programs like e-Verify alter
the hiring culture to prevent labor abuse.
The package of proposals from the White House is reasonable and
sensible. It is a practical response to a public policy problem. If the
the compromise includes legalizing a few hundred thousand invaders, a
civilized people can accept it. But the people in charge are incapable
of moderation, which is why they blew up the talks and are demanding a
blanket amnesty with no conditions. Again, the hive minded can only
understand the world in binary terms. It is those inside the walls
versus those outside the walls.
There is no reasoning with fanatics. As much as many on our side want
to believe that practical issues are what’s behind the multicultural
madness, the fact is the people pushing it are not reasonable people.
They are all or nothing people. That’s why this cannot end well. The
people in charge either succeed in pulling the roof down on the rest of
us, or the rest of us are forced to do what is necessary to dislodge the
lunatics that have seized the high ground of the culture. Moderation is
not the answer to fanaticism.
This will not end well.
No matter the whining from Lindsey-Oats or from Ryan's Corporatists, or--for that matter--the somewhat silly Bishops who attempt to make new moral rules where--frankly--they have no business whatsoever, if sensible immigration is not enacted, there will be problems. Big ones.
