In the latest from his blog, Sullivan's Salvos, Johnson County Supervisor Rod Sullivan publicly wishes Barack Obama would have abused the Oval Office more than he already has when it comes to immigration. And check out the twisted *reasoning* behind the support for abuse...... Sullivan never fails to check logic and reality at the door when he comes up with his little liberal-minded analogies. It's why Sullivan has such a hard time getting along with other people, even Democrats. His notions aren't based in common sense, it's all about the emotion for him.
I support President Obama’s Executive Order on immigration. As a matter of fact, I wish he had gone further.
The bottom line for me is very simple: people should have more rights than corporations. Labor deserves greater rights than capital.
If a Mexican company wanted to move to the US, it would be welcomed with open arms. US and international courts would fight to ensure the move took place. It has NAFTA to protect it. The media would consider it a boon and good for the economy.
Now replace the Mexican company with an actual Mexican human being. If she wants to move to the US, she has to jump through decades worth of hoops. US and international courts would fight to ensure the move did NOT take place. She has no NAFTA to protect her. The media would consider her a threat and a criminal.
We have open borders for corporations, closed borders for people. We must rethink this arrangement.
