New York Sen. Charles “Chuck” Schumer is the worst kind of hypocrite. 

The illegal alien situation has not changed in decades. It has gotten 

worse. The United States of America has millions of illegal aliens 

hiding out all over the country. Many do not return to home countries at 

the end of VISA terms. They just stay in the shadows.

Many crossed our nation’s borders — mostly the southern border with Mexico — illegally and now are also hiding in the shadows.

There is a huge argument about the building of a wall or barrier at our 

southern border.

On the one side are those who favor abiding by the laws 

of the United States of America. On the other are those who toss law to 

the wind for their own political gain.

On the one side are those who favor immigration reform to include ending 

anchor babies, stopping chain migration, instituting e-Verify and 

stopping immigration by lottery. Most favor immigration based upon merit 

to allow those in who will be assets to our country. Many favor a 

reduction of all immigration.

On the other side are those who want open borders, mass inflow of 

uneducated, unskilled, even diseased people who will end up on welfare, 

Medicare, be drains on schools and hospitals and more. They would allow 

criminals in along with drugs and human/child trafficking. OK with them.

At Georgetown Law School in 2009, Schumer gave a talk. He said, “We must create a system that coverts the current flow of primarily low 

skilled illegal immigrants into the United States into a more manageable 

and controlled flow of legal immigrants who can be absorbed by our 


Let me elaborate.

The first of these seven principles is that illegal immigration is wrong 

— plain and simple. Until the American people are convinced that we will 

stop future flows of illegal immigration, we will make no progress on 

dealing with the millions of illegal immigrants who are here now and on 

rationalizing our system of legal immigration — plain and simple and 


When we use phrases like “undocumented workers,” we convey a message to 

the American people that their government is not serious about combatting 

illegal immigration, which the American people overwhelmingly oppose. If 

you don’t think it’s illegal, you are not going to say it. I think it is 

illegal and wrong. We have to change it.

Above all else, the American people want their government to be serious 

about protecting the public, enforcing the rule of law, and creating a 

rational system of legal immigration that will pro-actively fit our 

needs rather than reactively responding to future waves of illegal 


People enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens 

and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who enter 

the U.S. legally.

To the advocates for strong, fair, effective, comprehensive immigration 

reform — and I am certainly one — I say to you that the American people 

will never accept immigration reform unless they truly believe that 

their government is committed to ending future illegal immigration. And 

any successful comprehensive immigration reform bill must recognize this 


You get the hypocrisy. Schumer and his fellow travelers have no regard for U.S. law. They care only about obstruction and power. Period.

For now, the USA is a sovereign nation and the light of the world. If we 

want to stay that way, the flow of illegal aliens must be stopped. They 

cannot be allowed to overwhelm our society in service of their own 

selfish wants. Look at Europe.

Finally, the people of this country must come to some consensus about 

what to do about the millions of illegal aliens living in our midst. But 

now, build the wall!
