Oh right, not illegal aliens, undocumented workers or better yet plain old immigrants. Just like your grandfather from Ireland or Italian grandmother. Oh right, those immigrants came through Ellis Island or another immigration center and had to prove to the U.S. government that they deserved to come into this country. They had to fill out papers and officially be welcomed, unlike those who swam the Rio Grande and ducked past the Border Patrol in order to arrive at your town.
These crimminals were out in force across the country today rallying for the right to become Americans. For some reason federal immigration officials were not on hand with buses to round up those in the crowd who are not supposed to be in the country in the first place. I would have thought these rallies would have made for a perfect place to make a dent in the number of undocumented illegal aliens now in the U.S.
Instead the only government types were morons like Hillary Clinton and Ted Kennedy who were on hand to pander for votes, I mean lend support to the downtrodden crimminals looking to become American citizens.
The entire immigration situation is surreal. The people involved act as if it is their right to come to this country to work. They behave as if they are victims. And the joke is they are winning this fight. They are winning because the majority of our own elected officials will not stand up and enforce the law as it is written. Instead they worry about losing Latin votes.
If car thieves, bank robbers, drunk drivers and others who break the law were to get together en masse and protest I wonder if the government would cave in and give them amnesty? Maybe they should try it out, there is nothing to lose.
But what might be the craziest aspect of the immigration problem is how the illegals position those who want immigration laws enforced as being anti-immigration. They rolled out the race card painting those on the other side as bigots who want to shut down the immigration pipeline. Now, I'm sure there are those people out there, but the majority of the arguments I've read are more interested in controlling the influx of people, not shutting it off.
When this all finally winds down there is no doubt in my mind that the 12 million illegal aliens in the country will be given some type of waver to stay. After all, deporting 12 million people is a logistic impossibility. What has to be done at that point is build a real wall between the U.S. and the rest of Latin America. Incrase the legal number of aliens allowed in, but strictly enforce all immigration codes, deport those who come in from now on and prosecute corporations that hire illegals.
I doubt even this will happen because our politicians are to frightened to take a stand on any issue that might cost them a vote.
Well, welcoome to America. Good luck, you're going to need it.
