The senate is interviewing Loretta Lynch this week. She’s president Obama’s nominee for attorney general. The attorney general is the person who’s responsible for enforcing our country’s laws. Lynch indicates she believes that illegal aliens have the right to work.
“I believe the right and the obligation to work is one that is shared by everyone in this country, regardless of how they came here.”
The problem is that these aliens are illegal. They don’t even have the right to be in the country, much less take jobs from actual American citizens. Last time I checked, the right to work isn’t in the constitution. The right to the pursuit of happiness is enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, but work isn’t mentioned.
Then there’s Lynch’s use of the word “obligation.” If everyone has an obligation to work, why have the welfare rolls expanded under president Obama? Welfare spending increased over 32% during the first four years of Obama’s presidency. Why isn’t the regime trying to enforce that obligation to work? Instead they’re busy ramping up the redistribution of earnings from those who choose to work, and can actually find a job.
Some days I read the news and it feels like I fell down Alice’s rabbit hole.
