President Trump was right to declare in his State of the Union Address that ruling elites’ tolerance for illegal immigration is not compassionate but cruel.
The Fortune 500 C-suite GOP donor and the open borders, #AbolishICE Democrat Socialists practice the same form of sentimental barbarism.

For the effete GOP donor, the illegal immigrant is useful economically. For the wild-eyed Marxist, the illegal immigrant is useful politically.
The effete GOP donor reduces his labor cost while the wild-eyed Marxist increases his cadre of reliable voters.
Both cohorts demagogue their respective parties with bigot-baiting rhetoric to frighten them away from the sort of compromise Trump proffered consistent with the promise of America Emma Lazarus articulated.
Virtuous immigration policy puts a welcome mat in front of our golden door and opens it to new Americans who will serve the long-term interests of America for generations to come.
