With the massacre by an illegal alien of three residents of the City of Manassas and wounding of three others one might think that the left, which is always so eager to assure us that illegal aliens aren’t responsible for much crime, might have something to say about what happened this past week. They’ve had so much to tell us about how illegal aliens aren’t a problem, so they must have some pearls of wisdom to scatter before us on this one. So after a diligent search of the left-wing blogosphere, here is the sum total of their commentary on this incident, and all of the policy alternatives they’ve offered towards addressing illegal alien crime such as what we’ve just suffered:
Nada. Zip. Nothing.
My, the leftist open borders crowd sure is eager to cast anyone concerned about crime by illegal aliens as being motivated by nothing but racism. They pounce on any opportunity they think might characterize anyone concerned about this issue as a discomfiting band of neanderthal throwbacks. But when events conclusively demonstrate that illegal aliens are in fact a public safety problem, where is the open borders left? Where are their “solutions?” Nowhere to be found.
When facts don’t fit liberal pre-conceived notions, the consistent response by them is to pretend it didn’t happen. The last triple murder in Prince William County and the independent jurisdictions within it was committed by an illegal alien in 2007. The left ignored it. The latest triple homicide in the area was committed by an illegal alien as well. Again, the left ignored it. Illegal aliens are responsible for a shocking proportion of the most violent crimes committed in the area, but all the left does is claim illegal aliens somehow aren’t a public safety issue. Their response to the evidence is to ignore it. Always.
On a highly related note, can anyone recall the last time a legal immigrant committed a murder in Prince William County, Manassas or Manassas Park? Anyone? While the left is so interested in conflating illegal aliens with legal immigrants when it comes to crime rates, you’d think an incident like this might encourage them to make the factual point that legal immigrants are not the problem and it’s the illegal aliens who disproportionately seem to be bent on rape, murder and pillage. That would be a refreshing change on their part, but it appears they haven’t the moral courage to admit it. It would contradict their mantra, which has assumed near-religious conviction on their parts.
Yeah, I know that doesn’t surprise you. Liberalism after all is a mental disorder.
