More pro (illegal) immigration (non) logic

John McCain over the weekend, attempting to justify his non-amnesty amnesty (whereby, recall, illegal immigrants get to keep their fraudulently obtained social security benefits*):  They had the taxes taken out of their paychecks.

Now that’s rich.  We are supposed to pity them because they had the taxes taken out of their paychecks.  Next he’ll be telling us that we should pity the Menendez brothers because, after all, they are orphans.  (Never mind that they orphaned themselves by murdering their parents.)

Senator McCain, illegal immigrants would not be in the predicament which you have here outlined but for their own choice to put themselves in this predicament.  They have made their beds; now them lay in their beds.
