The evils of immigration
posted by Kaimipono D. Wenger
Reader Marc B points out that a Utah state legislator has apparently identified the culprit behind recent illegal immigration problems. The source of the problem? Satan.
Don Larsen, a district chairman, has submitted a resolution equating illegal immigration to “Satan’s plan to destroy the U.S. by stealth invasion” for debate at Saturday’s Utah County Republican Party Convention. Referring to a plan by the devil for a “New World Order … as predicted in the Scriptures,” the resolution calls for the Utah County Republican Party to support “closing the national borders to illegal immigration to prevent the destruction of the U.S. by stealth invasion.”
The resolution is apparently having trouble getting much support in the legislature. Now some might blame politics, or the somewhat unusual nature of the resolution — but I kinda wonder if Satan’s not behind that, too. (It would make sense, no?)
Fortunately, Rep. Larsen and the other legislators will have the chance to ask Satan whether or not he’s really behind illegal immigration. Luck would have it that Old Scratch is visiting town to speak at a local university.
