Immigration: the “Slap in the Face” Argument is based on “Bleeding Heart” Principles.
CONTENTION: The argument that increasing avenues for legal immigration would be a “slap in the face” to those who followed current law is an argument based out of “bleeding heart” principles.
We don’t have our current immigration laws to avoid offending immigrants currently in the immigration process. We purportedly have them to BENEFIT AMERICA. So if it can be demonstrated that changing such laws WOULD BENEFIT AMERICA it does not matter if such a change would “offend” a person who waited in immigration line legally. Because, frankly, to put their “offense” above America’s interest is to engage in a policy dictated by “bleeding heart” considerations.
