There’s something about this whole illegal immigration debate that is absolutely insane… Why is it okay for someone who is not supposed to be in America to BE in America? The pro illegal alien argument is : “Because they are already here”. This “logic” seems to be too weak to have avalanched into an amnesty movement. But,… it has.
If I decided to visit Japan because it held some economic perks for me and I faded into that population after my tourist visa expired, I would be a CRIMINAL. And if the Japanese government caught me, slammed my butt on a plane and sent me back to America, why should I be mad? That would be crazy. They, after all, are a sovereign people, able to make and to enforce laws for their country that should be respected globally. Now, if I WERE crazy enough to reside in Japan illegally, I would also attempt to get pregnant in Japan so that my off-spring would then become Japanese nationals and I could get a better foot in the door with the Japanese government (maybe). In-between pregnancies I would support myself by working as a line cook at an area McDonald’s where the manager doesn’t care who he hires. Later, I could come out of hiding and take my children to Japanese health clinics, have them attend Japanese schools, and I would try to get some Japanese welfare in order to support them, myself, and some more children (if I feel like having more children…’cuz I am from a large family in the states). Later, as my loitering in Japan continued, my sons and my daughters could help me over-turn the Japanese government and set up a situation whereby scofflaws like myself (who breed like rabbits) would get amnesty. We would plead, march,cry, tug at the heart strings, and appeal to the basic sense of decency of the Japanese people in order to get what we want. Moving right along with my seditious game plan, we could then mandate the singing of the Star Spangled Banner at Sumo wrestling matches, the flying of the American flag over various Japanese municipalities, more beef and less seafood served in the country, and the destruction of the national identity of the Japanese people in countless other ways. This would ultimately include rewriting the Japanese Constitution.
Also, folks like me certainly aren’t going to start speaking Japanese and we think we can get by without having to do so… We want the Japanese to start translating everything into English because it would be racist and noninclusive of them not to accomodate us. We are human beings! We have rights too, after all! Our consumer yen counts (even though we don’t pay taxes)! So our mantra would become, “We are here! Accept us! Stop being racist! We give so much to Japan! Make us citizens! We earned it!” We would get some well-meaning, but misguided, Japanese citizens to feel sorry for us. They would help us push our cause for amnesty in the Japanese Parliament. And then,… there you have it…veni, vidi, vici.
Sound familiar? The premise that Hispanic illegals are presenting to American citizens is that it is perfectly fine for them not to obey our laws and to live in their own subculture in America. Conversely, we American citizens MUST obey our laws. If we do not, there will be chaos, anarchy, and no more “America” as we envision it to be. This country will be moving towards an unstable, Middle east feel…say, like, Lebanon. This is the exact future these illegals are offering to us. They come into this country ill-prepared to deal with it’s structure and with the expectations of its citizenry. If they want citizenship, they can apply for it legally and come into this country the right way like everyone else. This is not about what suits THEM…
Prospective immigrants from other parts of the world have taken the TOEFL repeatedly and have participated in Green Card raffles repeatedly over the span of YEARS for a chance to immigrate to this country. Many of these people are highly skilled and/or possess PhDs. They have spent a great deal of money on fees and on tests. They have taken the time to fill-out extensive paperwork and have submitted themselves to lengthy background checks. They have become scholars of the Declaration of Independence and know more about America than most natural-born American citizens. And, many of these people are turned down and must patiently try again. Conversely, this country is currently up 12 million (30 million by some accounts) illegals who have no intention of ever assimiliating into American culture whilst they are steadily pushing for their own political, nationalistic, and cultural agendas ( I am told that their Catholic beliefs prevent them from taking the notion of contraception or birth control seriously). Criminal, illiterate, and unwilling (or unable) to learn English, they gift us with the highest rate of of illegitimate births evidenced by any other ethnic group in America to date. Capable of performing only the most menial of tasks, they are not a “value added” people.
Some say that these illegals pay taxes and contribute greatly to the American GDP. I find these claims dubious, at best. If I am “on the run” ; trying to fly under the ICE radar ( not having been issued a proper social security card by the US government), I don’t think I would be waiving around a red flag to the IRS stating,”It is I, Jose! The illegal that crept into your country two years ago who now wants to pay my taxes!” Most likely, these illegals are accepting their income from under the table.(To get a job, illegal immigrants need a Social Security number, and they often “borrow” one.) And, instead of paying money into the American welfare system with their taxes, they are, in fact, “the” major strain upon it by unfairly accessing tax payer supported resources. Meanwhile, their population is booming (with mostly out-of-wedlock births) and I guess their strategy is to multiply and to conquer. And don’t get me started on the voting imbalance brought about by the influx of illegals into some areas of this country, the gangs; the arsonists; the drugs, and the other nasties associated with illegal immigration. If I hear one more illegal immigrant whining about how racist Americans are because someone complained that they have fifteen people shacked up in a two bedroom house, I’ll puke up some refried beans. And, if I hear one more illegal alien sympathizer bleating about how there is enough of this land to “go around” (while their argument increduously skips the fact that this country is NOT a free-for-all where A-N-Y-B-O-D-Y, including Al Qaeda, is free to rush it’s porous borders without consequence), I will not view these people as being very bright.
And, are they needed? Willing to work for less than what the Consumer Price Index warrants, illegals are an economic threat to the American working class because they depress wage rates. There was never a shortage of fast food workers, masons, janitors,trash collectors, maids, or handymen in this country, and I don’t believe that average Americans would be inconvenienced in the least if illegals disappeared from these venues of work. As a matter of fact, our economy would actually have a chance to heal due to the eventual normalization of wages.
So, the question remains: Why do illegals feel that they are above the law and can just stroll (or run) into this country, finance a townhouse and then start working at Taco Bell or digging ditches without a pause? The true motive behind this massive influx of illegals is corporate greed. Big business is profiting handsomely from the exploitation of these minimum wage slaves. Illegals are rushing into this country only because they know that there is plenty of work to be had. Consequently, they are given the false impression that their labor is shoring up the American economy. Truth be told, they are only shoring up the the bank books of the filthy rich. Some of that profit may trickle down into the GDP, but, it is, nevertheless, cancelled out by the taxes these illegals owe this country. They will never be “in the black” with America as long as they keep reproducing at such a God awful rate and, therefore, fleecing US citizens out of our tax dollars as they access services and funds not intended for them. Indeed, they are not the saviors of this society, but, the burdens of it.
I read an article about one illegal Hispanic construction worker who had positioned himself into a nice slice of the “American Pie”. Enjoying a nice income, a nice truck, a nice house, and a nice business, he was furious that the US Immigration and Naturalization Service had finally gotten around to catching him. He issued this haughty line : “This country is so ungrateful.” What the hell… The sheer nerve of this type of person is truly incredible. If I plant a nice garden in someone else’s backyard, is that MY garden?? Of course not. Illegals have no claims or rights to America. Period. What kind of rights would I have in Mexico as an illegal alien? They would boot me out of there without so much as an, “Adios!”
There is a right way to do something and there is a wrong way. Whether they find themselves in North Dakota, Maine, or Southern California, illegal aliens need to get the hell out of this country and re-enter it the right way if they wish to earn America’s proper regard. This is not about racism or Hispanic bashing… I challenge any of these illegals and any of their supporters to give me a sound reason why the American people should put up with their nonsense. Comments such as, “You took this country from the native Americans and now we are going to take it from you”, do not qualify. Every people of every nation of the world has “blood” on their hands. There is no such thing as an “innocent” nation that hasn’t migrated somewhere and remained somewhere without acts of violence, treachery, or deceit…even the native Americans warred with other native Americans before Europeans arrived on the scene. But, once a group of people “win” this sort of territorial conflict and they establish themselves in a region of the world, they are, then, answerable to no one, except their own citizens, regarding the land they occupy and the laws they institute (until they are taken over by another act of war…).
Now, if these illegals think that they are going to conquer the American people, in this day and age, and make us kow-tow to their laws, their “culture”, their bastards, their ignorance, and their horrors, they are sadly mistaken. It’s a shame how some white American liberals are so mired in guilt about the sins of their forefathers (concerning slavery and other social injustices ) that they don’t know how to react to brown people breaking our laws. They are so paralyzed by their PC sensibilities that they think being supportive of these felons will earn them some breeding points. They are confused about what the real issue is. They need to get a grip and to realize that an illegal alien in this country is not synonymous with an Hispanic person. This is about a mass invasion of law breakers. They could be purple for all I care. It’s the actions of these illegals which should concern patriots; patriotic black Americans, patriotic Hispanic Americans, patriotic Chinese Americans, patriotic white Americans, patriotic Muslim Americans, patriotic Somoan Americans, and so forth. Fortunately, most American citizens are fighting to reverse this situation. An anti-illegal movement is amassing and gaining strength on a Congressional level, even now. The American people must (and will) stand by our Constitution or we will fall for absolutely A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G.
