I have a piece up today at FoxNews.com hoping to counter/educate/eradicate the lefty media who have turned Donald Trump’s valid concern about illegal immigration into false allegations of racism and insensitivity.
Actually, reading some things on Ricochet prompted me to write it as well, to be perfectly honest.
I make the point that if the illegal Mexican residents alone were a state, they’d be the 14th largest state in America, the same size as Massachusetts. Imagine if Massachusetts tomorrow declared they were abandoning their state government and requesting that the rest of us provide the structure for them from everything from roads, to bridges, to police, to firefighters as well as prisons and jails? Would we say yes? Or would we accuse them of freeloading?
I’ve come up with some numbers on Mexican illegal immigrants and rape, and my takeaway is as follows:
“A good deal has been made by the leftists in the media that Donald Trump focused on rape. Normally a politician seeking to do away with 1,603 rapes of women each year would be heralded as a hero. But the political season is not normal. Instead, adding insult to horrible injury of 1,603 raped women per year, the left prioritized hurt feelings over rape and called Trump a racist because the men who did it were Mexican. Good grief. Anything to win an election.”
I hope you enjoy the rest of it.
