Washington Times Columnist: Immigration Reform Is 'Actually Racist'
Washington Times columnist Charles Hurt has a new theory that support for immigration reform is the position “that’s actually racist.”
In a column Tuesday, Hurt accused Democrats of staging a “deviously racist” “brown-face minstrel show routine” when it comes to immigration reform, because, he says, Democrats want “millions more” to “become addicted to the pitiful, slow-drip government teat” and turn into “another plantation of impoverished, enslaved voters”:
When Democrats “fight” for illegals, they talk about wanting to grant them amnesty for their crimes, welfare for not working and free health care. This way, Democrats presume, millions more will become addicted to the pitiful, slow-drip government teat and the party will enjoy another plantation of impoverished, enslaved voters for decades to come.
If Republicans are smart and genuinely serious about addressing the scourge of illegal immigration, they will reject these Democratic assumptions that illegals are intent on nothing more than being lazy deadbeat scofflaws and denounce Democrats for such a deviously racist portrayal.
Hurt elaborated on his argument in an interview with Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg yesterday, in which he insisted that “the Democratic position is the one that’s actually racist because they keep pandering to immigrants and illegal immigrants and say the only thing they care about is being granted amnesty for their crimes and being given welfare and being given free medical care.”
He claimed that Democrats think that "all these illegals...aspire to do is be sort of deadbeat criminals."
“The truth of the matter,” Hurt said, is that undocumented immigrants are “looking to work” and to be “lawful citizens.”
Hurt seems to have missed that the whole point of immigration reform is to allow undocumented immigrants to work and become lawful citizens.
