I like John Malkovich as an actor. He’s not only very talented, but he has a huge range. The man has a great ability to creep you out when he wants or make you laugh. And I thought he was one of the more reasonable actors, philosophically, in the movie biz.
Sadly, he’s now part of the open borders crowd (even though the guy lived in France until 2004, and only moved back to the U.S. because of a tax dispute with the French), trying to make us cry about the “struggle” of illegal aliens and executive produced a sob story on film that aired on HBO, last night:
“Which Way Home,” on HBO Monday, is a documentary that will break your heart. John Malkovich, one of the producers [DS: he's an Executive Producer], tells me he watched just 11 minutes of it before finding it worthy of funding. It’s about kids from south of the border who ride freight trains to the states. “Americans have strong feelings about this,” he says, “but immigration is not so easy — legal or illegal.”
Duh. Immigration isn’t easy. That ain’t Einstein stuff. But so what? Robbing banks isn’t easy, nor is getting away with murder. And just as those are illegal, entering and staying in America when you’re not here legally is also a crime.
Just because it’s hard doesn’t mean we should cry over it and not secure our borders and clamp down on the illegal alien population.
Ya know what was also not so easy? Hijacking four planes and managing to fly three of them into major buildings.
And we have plenty of people in this country–legally and illegally–who sympathize with them. Not all “immigrants” are innocent, cute “kids from south of the border who ride freight trains to the states” for a better life.
Many are something–and someone–quite different.
But that doesn’t matter to Malkovich and his production team, which characterize those who illegally enter our country as people “with enormous courage.” PUH-LEEZE.
Talk about “Dangerous Liaisons.”
