A Bathtub Analogy to Illegal Immigration

Republican congressman offers immigration solution

By Dana Rohrabacher

If a bathtub is overflowing and water is spilling onto the floor, the first thing most rational people would do is turn off the faucet, remove the tub stopper and let the water drain. Then the cleanup would begin. If only the federal government was as rational.

Unfortunately, there are many in Congress who would mop up the floor before turning off the faucet and draining the tub. Instead of turning off the massive flow of illegal aliens in our country and demonstrating that the government can keep that flow at a very low trickle, Congress is proposing to legalize the millions of illegal aliens in the country first. This strategy has not worked in the past and it will not work for our country now.

The federal government must demand that businesses verify the legal status of their employees and administer heavy fines to those who violate the law and hire illegal aliens.

Rohrabacher used to be our congressman before the Democrats in California Gerrymandered my Republican ass into Jane Harman’s District. We had actual rational representation up until then. Now, we have a congressperson who prioritizes Rowe v. Wade above National Security and Immigration Enforcement.
