If a nation has no borders and no citizens, it effectively ceases to be a nation. If there is no common language, values, culture or even passport, how can a country even define itself?
Yet the DNC’s Tom Perez has just declared that “no human being is illegal”, and while this might play well with a certain group of voters, the implications are wider than even he realises.
If the US were to declare that there is no such thing as an “illegal migrant”, how would the State know how many schools to build, how many hospitals to staff, and who to collect taxes from? Without the tax, where does the money for education, roads and military come from?
As reported in the Daily Caller:
“The Democratic party will always be here, fighting for you,” Perez told the group Monday afternoon. “The Democratic party is here, fighting for you.”
Perez asserted that the Democratic party and the immigrant community share the same values, centered around diversity. He claimed that “our nation’s diversity is our greatest strength.” He also expressed frustration with the current president, who he would not mention by name.
“Our most important power is not the mister in the White House, I can’t even mention his name, the power is with all of you,” Perez said, before extolling the power of big labor, which was present at the march in solidarity. “No human being is illegal, we must treat everyone with dignity,” Perez continued, as he switched between English and Spanish for the crowd.
