Is this the dumbest editorial - Ever?
Since Business Week was bought by the Bloomberg corporation (yes..that Bloomberg), it has taken a sharp turn to the left. They recently published an editorial that called for America to welcome rapists, murderers, thieves and dope dealers to our shores.
In “Exporting Mayhem Across The Border” the magazine calls for a halt to deportations of illegal aliens (called “unauthorized immigrants” by the magazine)-especially deportations of violent criminals.
The magazine reasons deportation of these criminals is making lives rougher in the countries where these criminals are sent. The nations are being de-stabilized and weakened by the influx of the deportees with records of violent crime.
What did the U.S. expect would happen when it dumped more criminals into countries already notorious for their high homicide rates, thriving made-in-the-USA gang networks, and weak judiciaries?
Well…maybe those countries should beef up their own crime-fighting or take measures to boost their economies.
The magazine does exhort America to send funds to Latin American economies to do so and justifies this spending by blaming America for the problem.
Never mind the immorality of the U.S. outsourcing the drug war to those least capable of prosecuting it and U.S. culpability in incubating Central America’s gangs
The magazine should send a crew to chip Emma Lazarus’s poem (“The New Colossus”) off the Statute of Liberty and replace it with it:
“Give me your criminals, your thieves, your rapists, yearning to hook kids on drugs, commit crime and mayhem on Americans”.
