Imagine if you lived in America’s largest city where the mayor has disrespected its police force, discontinued the surveillance of mosques and watched two of his police officers get attacked by an Islamic jihadist with an ax. Now, realizing that you live in the biggest Islamic terrorist target in the world, after seeing what happened last week in Paris, what do you think your mayor should do to protect you and your fellow citizens?
Well, if your mayor is an admitted socialist like New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, you’d throw the doors wide open to as many illegal aliens as possible!
As CNSNews.com reports, de Blasio said on Monday he wants to give “identification cards to illegal aliens allows them to feel like citizens and enjoy some of the same benefits as actual citizens.”
“We don’t want any of our fellow New Yorkers to feel like second-class citizens,” de Blasio was quoted as saying in a National Public Radio website article. “We don’t want them to feel left out.”
“In addition, de Blasio is promising more than just ID cards if illegal aliens come forward and sign up. “A free, one-year membership to 33 cultural institutions,” de Blasio said. “That did get the attention of many New Yorkers.”
Doggone, if I am a jihadist in America, I’m heading straight to the Big Apple and getting myself an ID card. And then I’m going to one of those 33 cultural institutions and blow it up. C’mon, this is a complete meltdown, because how can someone here illegally be a “fellow New Yorker?” But worse, how can the mayor of America’s largest city and financial center be so flippant at this critical time?
This was a focal point of Mayor de Blasio’s recent State of the City address, when he said “New York would become the largest city to offer identification cards to illegal aliens, making it easier for them to open bank accounts, lease apartments or borrow library books, The New York Times reported in February 2014. The Times said that de Blasio got the biggest applause during his speech when he mentioned his plan for ID cards for illegal aliens.”
“To all of my fellow New Yorkers who are undocumented, I say: New York City is your home, too,” de Blasio said. “And we will not force any of our residents to live their lives in the shadows.”
These residents are not citizens but apparently de Blasio doesn’t realize that — and what a slap in the face to American citizens and those who came here through a legal immigration process — some of whom may still be waiting for their applications to be processed.
But what I find most distressing is an elected official — hard to say leader — who doesn’t grasp his responsibility to protect his real “citizens” and provide a secure environment – rather than ruling through his warped political ideology.
I just pray that the city, which suffered from two major Islamic terrorist attacks – the 1993 and 2001 World Trade bombings, won’t be hit again. It’s as if de Blasio and Obama fail to embrace their number one responsibility: security — one national, the other domestic.
And why, just why would the mayor embark upon such folly? Of course, it’s all about the progressive socialist definition of fairness and social egalitarianism. Why even bother to become a legal American citizen? What’s the point? As we saw in California, you can get a drivers license and in New York City you’ll get an ID card.
At what point will Americans awaken and see what is happening in their country? You see, this is yet another reason why I definitively state we are losing the war against Islamc-fascism and jihadism.
De Blasio says giving an ID card to an illegal alien makes them feel like a citizen. But nothing makes you feel like an American citizen better than respecting our rule of law, the Constitution. If something can just be given to you, not earned, then what value does it have?
When you can break the laws of our Republic and still receive the misguided benevolence of liberal progressive apologists, what lesson have you learned? Exactly, it ends up being as a Pavlovian exercise and it doesn’t take a genius to predict many more will line up to enjoy the benefits of legal plunder.
I’m sorry, but as long as our nation is being led by the likes of Obama and de Blasio, we will never win the war against Islamo-Fascism and jihadism.
