Paul Ryan loves open borders (except around his property)
Paul Ryan’s omnibus bill is a dream come true for Barack Obama. And the left. And, apparently, for most of those presumably on the right (who really are on the left). The bill funds DACA, it does nothing to secure the border, it does not block Syrian refugees, and on and on and on. In these, and other ways, it is a national security (and national identity) disaster.
But oh, the irony, or should I say hypocrisy, when you see the border Mr. Ryan has built around his home to protect his family and property – a border replete with private border patrol.
While Paul Ryan’s omnibus spending bill does not provide funding for the mandatory completion of a 700-mile double-layer border fence that Congress promised the American people nearly a decade ago when it passed the 2006 Secure Fence Act, Paul Ryan has constructed a fence around his property.
As Breitbart News’s photographic documentation reveals, Ryan’s home is surrounded by a tall border fence reinforced by equally high bushes— ensuring both privacy and security. Moreover, the fence is manned by an on-duty agent who guards his property’s perimeter. Upon even the slightest appearance of any unusual activity— such as a 5’2″ female taking a photograph of the fence— Ryan’s border agent will deploy into action to ensure the perimeter’s sovereignty.

Paul Ryan grants himself the very thing he withholds from the nation. He has no business being speaker of the House or an elected official on any level. Any politician who will not enforce maximum security for our country has abdicated his oath of office. It’s that simple.
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has previously highlighted the hypocrisy of immigration expansionists who surround their homes with border fences and monitor who comes on their property but do not apparently believe the American people deserve the same protections. Sessions pointed specifically to open borders advocate Mark Zuckerberg who, according to reports, spent $30 million buying the surrounding four homes around his own property in order to get “a little more privacy.”
Sessions said, “Well, the ‘masters of the universe’ are very fond of open borders as long as these open borders don’t extend to their gated compounds and fenced-off estates.”
Indeed. It seems Washington elites fancy themselves as being at greater risk because of their job titles. But it’s been ordinary Americans who’ve been killed by jihadists. And it’s been ordinary Americans who’ve been burglarized, raped, and murdered by illegal aliens.
God bless Jeff Sessions, who has been a tireless advocate for border security and a voice of sanity on the issue of immigration.
On previous occasions, Ryan has repeatedly suggested that the American people are not entitled to discriminate against who enters their country on a visa. When Sean Hannity asked Paul Ryan about whether or not he would support curbs to Muslim immigration, Paul Ryan declared, “That’s not who we are.”
Why are we “not entitled”? What an outrageous thing to say! As for his comment “that’s not who we are,” it was a line straight out of Obama’s playbook. It’s one of those phrases that sounds profound to idiots but means nothing. But just for the sake of argument, let’s dignify it with a response: it’s not who we are because, apparently, we’re idiots.
However, Ryan’s fence ensures that no refugees will be able to enter his property without his permission— even as U.S. communities are not able to make any such restrictions. (snip)
“America is more than just a country,” Ryan said. “It’s more than Chicago, or Wisconsin. It’s more than our borders. America is an idea. It’s a very precious idea.”
Another phrase that seems plucked from Obama’s list of vapid one-liners. America is “more than our borders.” What the heck does that even mean, and who’s claiming all we are is our borders? But, for goodness's sake, without secure borders, we have no country.
And can we please stop with the “idea” crap? I get it. We all know what that means. And it’s true. America is an idea. But right now, we haven’t the luxury of thinking or speaking in this way. Perhaps at some time in the future (assuming there’s a miracle and this nation is saved), we can talk about the idea of America. For now, how about we get back to basics and secure the border so we have a country? Yes, a country.
Ryan disparaged Americans who opposed large-scale immigration, characterizing that attitude as ignorant, declaring that throughout American history, “Each wave [of immigration] is met with some ignorance, is met with some resistance.”
This brand new shiny speaker of the House is equating past waves of immigration with immigration from Islamic countries. If he can’t tell the differences between the two, then, once again, he has no business being in a position of power of any kind. And how dare he call us ignorant? We are the ones who have made it a point to learn and educate ourselves about the enemy . If we are resisting, it is for good reason. Does Ryan know anything about the teachings of the Quran? I thought not. Then he, like so many others, should learn and stop flapping his lips with nonsense plucked out of thin air.
Ryan said, “We want to have a system where people can come here and work– go back and forth if they want to… so that we have an open door to the people who want to come and contribute to our country, who want to come and make a difference in their families’ lives, and our economy.”
No! Not an “open door”! Right now we need to slam the door and take stock.
The madness spins ’round and ’round. As for Paul Ryan, he needed to grow a pair. Instead he grew a beard. What a pathetic little man.
