Somehow, Andy Borowitz obtained a top-secret version of the forthcoming Dumbo/Moron immigration plan. In it, the geniuses opposing POTUS 44 will pursue a scorched earth policy that will remake the USA into the equivalent of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (the poorest of the poor). No self-respecting immigrant seeking a better place will bother with the USA. If this is (fair & balanced) brilliance at the border, so be it.

GOP Unveils Immigration Plan
By Andy Borowitz
Tag Cloud of the following piece of writing
Senate Majority Leader [To-Be] Mitch McConnell unveiled his party’s long-awaited plan on immigration on Wednesday, telling reporters, “We must make America somewhere no one wants to live.”
Appearing with House Speaker John Boehner, McConnell said that, in contrast to President Obama’s “Band-Aid fixes,” the Republican plan would address “the root cause of immigration, which is that the United States is, for the most part, habitable.”
“For years, immigrants have looked to America as a place where their standard of living was bound to improve,” McConnell said. “We’re going to change that.”
Boehner said that the Republicans’ plan would reduce or eliminate “immigration magnets,” such as the social safety net, public education, clean air, and drinkable water.
The Speaker added that the plan would also include the repeal of Obamacare, calling healthcare “catnip for immigrants.”
Attempting, perhaps, to tamp down excitement about the plan, McConnell warned that turning America into a dystopian hellhole that repels immigrants “won’t happen overnight.”
“Our crumbling infrastructure and soaring gun violence are a good start, but much work still needs to be done,” he said. “When Americans start leaving the country, we’ll know that we’re on the right track.”
In closing, the two congressional leaders expressed pride in the immigration plan, noting that Republicans had been working to make it possible for the past thirty years. Ω
