Out in Washington State, illegal aliens are canvassing for Patti Murray.That's right — they are going door to door encouraging people to go vote and vote for Patti Murray.It is not illegal for illegals to go canvassing, other than the part about them being illegal in the first place. But it is rather indicative of the stark differences between Rossi and Murray on the issue and the desperation of those whose first act in this country was an illegal one and their desire to be embraced as legal.
Pramila Jayapal, head of OneAmerica Votes, says the campaign is about empowering immigrants who may not feel like they can contribute to a campaign because they can't vote."Immigrants really do matter," Jayapal said. "If we can't vote ourselves, we're gonna knock on doors, or get family members to vote."
That's rather galling to me. They are not supposed to be in this country and are out trying to affect the public policy of this country?!?! They shouldn't be empowered. They should be deported.
