Jewish Coalition Demands End of Immigration Enforcement
“A galaxy of national Jewish organizations support the end of immigration enforcement”
By Lawrence Auster
The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) has a project
called Progress by Pesach
“Progress by Pesach is the national Jewish campaign to encourage the new administration and Congress to choose humanitarian immigration reform over the failed policy of exclusively relying on raids and enforcement tactics as a means of controlling immigration.Passover is a time when we celebrate our freedom from bondage and remember when we were strangers in a strange land. Connecting our history to the struggles of immigrants today is the inspiration behind Progress by Pesach.” [Emphasis added.]
Here are just a few of the many national Jewish organizations endorsing the project: the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League, B’nai B’rith International, the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, the Jewish Reconstructionist Federation, the National Council of Jewish Women, the Rabbinical Assembly, the Union for Reform Judaism. (The full list is lengthy).
Thus a galaxy of national Jewish organizations supports this campaign to end workplace raids and other immigration enforcement, all under the rubric that “we [Jews] were strangers in the land of Egypt.”
What they are explicitly saying, as
a national Jewish coalition, is that as
Jews, they are required by their Jewish
tradition to seek to undermine American law and sovereignty and allow America to be invaded by a mass immigration of illegal aliens.
I have said before that when Jews declare that as
Jews they are required to strive for open borders, when as
Jews they demand U.S. national suicide, that allows critics to criticize Jews as
Jews, and not just as generic “liberals.” This is the strongest case of that nature I’ve ever seen.
