here they come…

calais

This is what our news looks like every night: drone shots of lorries being swarmed by migrants (they pry open the back doors and fling out any goods that get in their way). News shots of migrants pouring off of boats. Many head for Britain because our benefits system is sweet.

The thing today in Calais started as a strike by French transportation workers, who set huge tire fires across the road (they’re striking in part because they’re sick of dealing with migrants). That gave the migrants quite an easy opening.

The authorities in Calais are pissed that they’re getting stuck with this mess (they’ve proposed moving the border between France and England onto English soil!), so they don’t stay up nights worrying about how many get through. There’s a farmer in quite the middle of the country just rounding them up in handsful as the trucks drop them off.

Down where we are, on the South coast, folks are accustomed to hopping across the Channel casually and often. They’re used to goods and custom coming through the tunnel to us. This pinched today.

More to the point, these pictures are freaking everyone out.

The news tonight said these ones are coming from Syria, Eritrea, Somalia and…Ethiopia, I think. I’m sure they’ll fit right in.

Here, he would be arrested by the government for this. If our ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] or the Border Patrol encounter illegal invaders, they make sure they are OK, give them transportation to a city, and applications and instructions for welfare. Interestingly enough, they have “border” checkpoints hundreds of miles from any border that seem to be devoted to stopping and randomly searching only US citizens and their vehicles.

Seinen Papieren, Bitte!, in a not too friendly Sicherheitsdienst voice.

Because they are, claimed in theory, merely enforcing border controls which is a Federal function, the courts will not touch them.

Sink them.

Yes, it’s inhumane. Inhuman, even. It’s also the only thing that will work.

I despair that the only thing left after the apocalypse will be copies of the Daily Mail.

Why would you do that to a T-800? An L-9000, okay. A Jimmy, yeah, whaterver. Even a Freightshaker, sure, but please, leave PACCAR out of this. Dang it.

All the liberal policy for the last 50 years is coming home to roost.

Illegal invaders? Oh, you RACIST HATER! (clutches pearls)

ICE prefers the term “new voters”…

Reciprocity: Illegal immigrants in Mexico (from Honduras, Guatemala, etc.) are tossed into stir if they’re lucky. Slavery and mass executions are not unknown.
