Strawman: The Inconsistent Immigrant

There are several issues here.

  1. Nobody claims that all immigrants (or even just all illegal immigrants) are the same. There is no logical contradiction between believing that Jose, who is a much harder worker than I am, will “steal” my job and believing that Ramon will be too lazy to work and end up supported by the government one way or another.
  2. The meme says “immigrant”. This is another strawman, because the public policy argument is only about immigrants who are violating immigration law.
