The editors of the Washington Post just can’t let go of the idea that the Democratic leadership has some inner moral core:
Rather than talk about the immorality of a wall, Democrats could use their leverage to achieve a truly moral purpose. In return for a few billion dollars for a segment of the president’s wall — which would immediately be challenged in court by property owners along the border — Democrats might permanently shield from deportation well over 1 million “dreamers,” young migrants primarily brought to this country as children by their parents. They might also protect tens of thousands of Haitians, Salvadorans and Hondurans whom the administration is preparing to expel after having lived legally in this country for years under a program known as Temporary Protected Status.
They don’t have such a core. Their interests are solely about power and influence and the wealth that comes with them.
Is there anything that could disabuse them of their absurd view? Or has partisan politics become their religion?
