The levels of sheer absurdity when it comes to the growing desire to not enforce immigration laws in this country have now reached all-out epic proportions. In New York City it is now a fineable offence – to the tune of $250,000 – to call someone an “illegal alien” (regardless of if they in fact are or not).
Also on the list of new offenses are discriminating based on someone’s English proficiency OR even threatening to call immigration authorities “based on someone’s actual or perceived alienage, [or] citizenship status, [or] national origin”. This means that the person CAN IN FACT BE an illegal alien, but it is still an offense to call them one OR tell them you are calling INS.
Absolutely amazing. So basically, not only do SO many Democrats in this country WANT illegal aliens here in the U.S. (to increase their voter base when those illegals later have citizen children), but now you can’t even call an illegal out for being one OR tell them you are calling INS without risking a $250k fine!? I suppose the work-around is to just not say anything to them and simply call INS and wait for the problem to get fixed, but the fact that American CITIZENS in this country can’t even SAY to an illegal immigrant that they are indeed an illegal immigrant is utterly ridiculous and astonishing, not to mention stupid. Dems are systematically stripping U.S. citizens of their rights and transferring those rights over to anybody in the world that wants to break the law and come to the U.S. illegally. Just what in the HELL is going on in this nation?
A couple of examples cited as violations of the new guidelines are:
- A hotel prohibiting its housekeepers from speaking another language because it would “offend” guests.
- A store owner telling two people speaking Thai to “speak English” or “go back to your country.”
The first question that comes to mind is regarding the hotel company that is now obliged to pay someone to work for them… but the company can’t require them to speak in the official language of this country while on the clock? Companies can enforce drug policies and firearms restrictions on citizens that clearly violate their rights but OH NO, they absolutely cannot require that their employees speak English. Absolutely astonishing.
The second question I would ask is how friendly do you think English speaking Americans would be treated if they were say…in Iran openly speaking English? Not only would they be told to stfu, they’d be thrown in jail just for being American, yet these latest rules suggest an American here in the U.S. couldn’t even request for an Iranian to speak English. Instead, we must let them continue to speak Farsi while plotting their next bombing and if we insist they speak English so we can know what they’re saying, WE get a $250k fine! Just what in the absolute HELL is going on in the United States of America to where one of our most prominent cities is bending over backwards to persecute American citizens while opening the door to any law breaking border jumper that can somehow make it to our country? If this isn’t an indicator of the downfall of civilization as we know it, I certainly don’t know what is.
