Okay, here it is my rant on illegal immigration. I just can't take it any longer. I know this is going to offend some of the people that I know, but so be it. If they can't understand my position then they are offending me.
First, let me state that if I lived in Mexico and I wasn't borne of the privileged class, then I would be doing everything I possibly could to get out of that country and into one that offered me a future and the possibility of a better life.
However, I would do it like I do everything else; I would do it in accordance to the law. And if I broke the law I would take the responsibility of paying for my actions.
I know many people here, and some I call friends, who I know are here illegally.
I sympathize with them and their situation. But that is as far as it goes.
Illegal need to sympathize with my feelings as a citizen of this country. That is the least they can begin to do. If they are ever to be granted citizenship then they need to take the responsibility for their actions and begin to do what is necessary to legally comply with our great countries Laws. If that means going back home first, then that's what it means.
There are numerous legal processes enabling people to freely enter this country and eventually obtain citizenship.
Illegally crossing the border smirks of obtuse snobbery and belligerent arrogance. How dare anyone who crosses our border illegally think that they deserve more rights then someone who is legally waiting to do so? How dare they expect the same rights that I have as a citizen. I have to obey the law and they don't. Are you F'ing Kidding me!!!!!!!
Immigrants are hard working honest people who respect America, its citizenry and its laws, and demonstrate that by obeying them and not breaking them.
Illegal immigrants are criminals, Period.
Just because they can stream over the border on foot or in the back of a truck without being caught, by no means grants them the right to be here. Neither does coming here illegally and popping out a kid!!
Millions around the world follow legal immigration procedures to get here. The Border crossers spit in their faces and mine when they don't follow the same procedures.
If the bleeding hearts are so worried about their rights and treatment then let them stay at their houses and let them feed, shelter and provide for their medical needs and carte blanch birthing extravaganzas.
Let them designate a greater portion of their salary to help pay for all of this and allow me the freedom not to. Let them pay my part of the gigantic over burdensome school tax accessed for every new home built in LA. I don't have kids and I certainly don't want to pay for yours. Talk about someone's rights being violated!!!!!!!!
50% of the students enrolled in LAUSD are from illegal households. 50% don't graduate.
Their families refuse to learn English.
Did you read the latest census statistic? Of the 48 million people that don't have medical insurance, 50% of them are illegal aliens...What! We have a medical insurance crisis in America???
Citizens pay for medical care either through taxes or law suits or eventually the forfeiture of their property when they die to satisfy the bill. I have seen this happen many times.
When I an Anglo, go to the emergency ward the administrators are on me like flies on you know what ,to get me to sign a blizzard of forms with all of my pertinent personal information for them to have access to so they can hunt me down it the future if I don't pay my bill.
But if you," no speak English", they don't even bother to ask if you a citizen. They slip you the indigent forms to mark your X and then send the bills to the Federal Government so they can have me pay for them later!!!
Illegal Aliens ...Its gratis baby!! Free medical. Free, Free, Free!!!!! It's hard to collect from someone when you have no idea where they are from. Especially if they flee back across the border after they pop out a few kids or get that heart bypass surgery.
Hey Hillary Clinton, here's my solution to the medical insurance crisis... Resign your citizenship; go to Mexico...If they will let you in, if they catch you there illegally they throw your ass in jail... Then sneak back across the border into the United States and go to the hospital of your choice for free services and world class care.
All the bogus facts and figures spouted about the benefits illegal pay back into the economy are horse crap. Most employers pay in cash. The illegal run most of that money back across the Border to Mexico. Being involved in the building industry for many years in Los Angeles I can expertly testify that this is a fact.
Why do you think the Mexican Government wants an open border policy?
Because 50% of that countries income is derived from illegal working here.
My Great Grandparents wanted to immigrate here at the turn of the century. But guess what, they were Italian and that immigration quota had long been satisfied. There only choice was to move to Greece and live there for five years to fulfill immigration eligibility from that country.
Two weeks after their arrival in this country they were killed in a bomb blast in downtown New York City set off during a skirmish between Serb and Croatian immigrants.
My Grandfather was left an orphan on those mean streets at the age of nine.
My family uprooted their lives to move to another country to get here and then they give their lives to allow me to eventually be borne her. But most importantly they did this all while obeying the laws that had been written to allow immigration.
Illegal crossing the Mexican Border to get here and then demanding rights and citizenship denigrate the great sacrifices my family and millions more have made to get here legally .
Mind the gates at our borders. Make people obey the law. Protect our great country. Allow legal immigration to flourish.
