A June 9 WorldNetDaily article by John Bennett begins:
“Each person’s God-given dignity” requires amnesty for illegal aliens.
So says a new radio advertisement by an organization called Evangelical Immigration Table.
The pro-amnesty radio ad can be heard online, and will be airing in 13 key states.
In fact, the ad calls for "immigration solutions that respect each person's God-given dignity, respect the rule of law, protect family unity, guarantee secure borders, ensure fairness to taxpayers, and establish a path toward citizenship." None of this is "amnesty" by the traditional definition of the word, which implies no preconditions. Bennett offers no evidence that the EIT's approach to immigration reform lacks preconditions.
Still, Bennett went on to huff:
If current illegal aliens must be granted citizenship because of their “God-given dignity,” then later illegal aliens must also be granted citizenship for the same reason. The EIT ads did not state or imply that there was any limitation on the role of “God-given dignity” in creating an entitlement to citizenship.
But the ad does not cite "God-given dignity" as the only criteria for an "entitlement to citizenship" -- it advocates a comprehensive approach, which, again, is not "amnesty."
Bennett makes no effort to explain how any of this could be defined as "amnesty" -- he's simply baselessly declaring that any immigration reform is "amnesty."
