Steyn: Where's The Dream Act for Meriam Ibrahim?

An exceptional post from Mark Steyn. 

"I don't think it's in the interests of Americans for thug states to learn they can execute the spouses of US citizens with impunity. That will not improve the security of Americans and westerners as they move around the world. As I said the other day, the spouse of a US citizen is entitled to US citizenship herself: It's essentially non-discretionary. So Mrs Wani is in effect an American-in-waiting."

"However, the sclerotic, dysfunctional and utterly shameful US immigration bureaucracy takes years to process these routine spousal applications. And that is why Daniel Wani's wife was languishing in Khartoum: she was waiting for "permission" from the United States Bureau of Inertia to travel to New Hampshire and join her husband."

"And, while she was waiting, the Sudanese decided to kill her."

And the story just got worse.

The Dad has MS.

Confined to wheelchair.

Sudan is a bloody hell nest of barbarians.
