The Door Swings Both Ways

Cross posted from CommonSenseAmerica:

Just as those who claim to see racism as the foundation of every disagreement in our nation are most often the worst offenders, the true hypocrites are usually the people that scream “hypocrisy” the loudest.

From KFMB, CA:

A new billboard in the South Bay is causing quite a stir, as the battle over immigration reform continues.

The billboard, located near Interstate 5 and less than a mile from the border, reads “Stop The Invasion” and “Secure Our Borders,” and the phone number of Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s San Diego office.

A similar billboard went up recently in Duarte in Los Angeles County. Other billboards have been put up in Atlanta, Dallas, Miami, Phoenix and West Virginia, Elliot said.

The interim president and general counsel of the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Educational Fund says the move amounts to hypocrisy.

“This group that happens to put up the billboards purports to be a family-oriented, family values organization,” Trasvina told a Southern California television station. “Family reunification is a cornerstone of our immigration policies.”

Hmmm, it seems to me that “family reunification” can take place in either Mexico or the United States.

So please tell me, how it is hypocritical to try to send people home to their families or to stop them from leaving their families in the first place?

Wouldn’t it be more correct to say that it is actually the pro-illegal immigration advocates that are hypocritical by condoning those who have illegally entered our country and then demanding their entire family be allowed to come to this country under the guise of “family reunification”?

Let’s see, considering the very definition of hypocrisy is “feigned high principles”, I would say it is pretty easy to spot the hypocrites in this argument.
