Compassionate Conservatism

Good lord. Apparently, Republicans are pushing bills that aim to narc on immigrants who try to get health care, or who have the audacity to get pregnant and then give birth (Culture of Life!). Rep. Neva Walker is absolutely correct: if something like this gets into law, immigrants will for better or worse assume that if they go to the ER for emergency care they will be reported to ICE.

These kinds of proposals would be par for the course from people who just don't give a good goddamn about immigrants. But I seem to remember phrases like "Compassionate Conservative" and "Culture of Life" from erstwhile Republicans. Do these people have no capacity for seeing hypocrisy?

Funny how your comments are missing one key word - ILLEGAL.

Legal immigrants are not subject to the proposed law. Let's keep our facts straight.
