What is Wrong with Illegal Immigration? - Philosophy in Progress

It is important that we think as clearly as we can about it. 1) First of all, we must insist on a distinction that many on the Left ignore, that between legal and illegal immigration. Libertarians also often elide the distinction. The elision is aided and abetted by the use of the obfuscatory term 'migrant' which manages to conflate two distinctions at once: that between immigrants and emigrants, and that between legal and illegal immigrants. Language matters here as elsewhere and one must oppose the linguistic mischief of those who speak of 'undocumented workers' to hide the fact that the law is being broken. Legal and illegal immigration are separate, logically independent, issues. 2) The most general reason for not allowing illegal immigration is precisely because it is illegal.

It is a topic of deep interest for us. We keep reading and hearing “Science (uppercase obligatory) shows…” with respect to politically correct views on the Wuhan flu, anthropic global warming, racism, economic oppression, etc….. “Believe the science.” Cuomo, Whitmer, Newsom Are Worse Than Wrong: Coronavirus Update XLIV.

The Georgia Vote-Counting Video Was Not 'Debunked.' Not Even Close. A Big Tech-backed “fact” “checking” outfit claimed to debunk explosive evidence in support of Republicans’ claims of significant election problems at a Thursday Georgia Senate hearing.

The Georgia Vote-Counting Video Was Not 'Debunked.' Not Even Close

It didn’t. Not even close. Newly discovered security footage from Georgia’s State Farm Arena showed dozens of ballot counters, media, and Republican observers leaving en masse at the same time from the ballot-counting area for Fulton County. After they left, a small remnant of about four workers began pulling trunks containing thousands of ballots from underneath a table with a long tablecloth and running them through machines. The footage supported claims from Republicans that they were told counting had stopped for the night, only to find out hours later that it had kept going on.

On Friday morning, a group called Lead Stories published a “hoax alert” falsely claiming to have debunked the security video.

It’s been a busy few days, and getting busier, so I’ll be slow in answering emails and requests. It’s been said several times already, but it’s such a hilarious joke that it bears retelling.

One Milwaukee Ballot Curiosity & One New Theoretical Voter Fraud Tool – William M. Briggs. Milwaukee Milwaukee is comprised of a number of wards, almost 500, from which was collected the number of votes each candidate received in both the 2016 and 2020 Presidential elections (official source link). A copy of that was given to me (I take it as is) from which comes the following analysis. The 2020 election: fuckery is afoot. I am more offended by how ham fisted, clumsy, and audacious the fraud to elect him is than the idea of Joe Biden being president. I think Joe Biden is a corrupt idiot, however, I think America would survive him like we’ve survived previous idiot administrations. However, what is potentially fatal for America is half the populace believing that their elections are hopelessly rigged and they’re eternally fucked.

And now, however this shakes out in court, that’s exactly what half the country is going to think.
