Immigrants

Let's get something straight first: my father is an immigrant. he wasn't born in this country. I was born in El Paso Texas. I'm of Hispanic origin. I'm not MEXICAN-AMERICAN. i'm an American. i don't have dual-citizenship and neither do the rest of you dumbasses who were born here and try tell people you're (nation)-American. You're American. Get over it.

So let's talk about this "walkout" today. The idea was to show the rest of America that somehow we're a crippled nation without 12 million criminals doing whatever they fucking please. fine. one problem..... you aren't taking this to the logical conclusion nor are you being 100% honest. that's why i'm here to help you out.

- let's start with the walkout. the idea was to show what would happen if we were lacking ILLEGAL immigrants and yet we had legal immigrants walking out too. so that's basically like saying we wanted to test the knowledge of all 4th grade students in the school and the 5th and 6th grade throw their scores into the mix "to show support". it doesn't really give an accurate count of what were were supposed to be testing for does it?

- that brings me to the most insulting part of this whole arguement. it isn't JUST the idea that these people overestimate their value. it's that they want us all to believe that they're only bringing GOOD things to the table. they want us to just skip over the details. things like crime, economic leeching, social invasion, and overcrowding. what do i mean? well, if we're going to have a day that shows the country MINUS illegal immigrants then are we going to subtract EVERYTHING they impact? yeah yeah they do shit jobs most of us wouldn't enjoy. how noble. HOWEVER..... are we also going to have a day WITHOUT them stealing our cars? breaking into our homes? are they going to leave the drugs at the border for a day? Are they going to leave our prisons so out tax dollars go towards something else? What about our hospitals? Do we get to deny them treatment all day so we can treat LEGAL citizens and maybe bring down health care costs some? Are they going to stay off our roads so they don't wreck our cars while driving without licences or insurance so we can maybe pay smaller premiums? How bout our schools? Do we get to kick them out so teachers in south Texas only have to worry about teaching in ENGLISH? Come on you guys, answer me. You started this day. In for a penny, in for a pound.

- the bottom line is, why should we treat these people special? they seem to think they're above the laws of this country. somehow cooking food and mowing lawns makes you SO important that you should be able to do whatever the fuck you like. These people are not special nor are they irreplacable. Need someone to do the lawns? Here's a novel idea: how about you kick some of these lazy fucking kids off the net and out of the mall and make them *gasp* do some manual fucking labor for a change. Little Johnny could use some time away from MySpace and learn to get his hands dirty. So we lose a few resturaunts because there's no cooks? big fucking deal. here's another shocking idea..... try sitting down with your family and having dinner together. It ain't going to kill us to eat at home, and this is coming from a guy who eats fast food all the fucking time.

- This bill in Congress isn't the answer. They want to make it MORE illegal to do something these illegals are already doing. Our prisons are crowded enough. You want to dry up the flow of aliens? Start throwing these jackasses who EMPLOY them in jail. I guaren-damn-tee that when these factory owners spend a few months tossing salads in Chino, work is going to become harder to come by for illegals.

Great Post!!!!! You know they remind me of criminals in jail. They have committed a crime and now they want all the rights in the world. If you want to be an american start by following the laws and try becoming a legal citizen!!! If we just let any and everyone live in america right this minute can you imagine how over populated we would be.

You know i talked to an x-marine this morning telling me the same thing. He said stop the PEOPLE WHO EMPLOY THEM. FINE THE SHIT OUT OF THEM FOR HIRING THEM. THAT'LL PUT A STOP TO SOME OF IT.But then we find that if these immagrants lose their jobs...hell they'll just live off our welfare system....a system depleted...by people who don't want to freaking work for a living.
Immagrants drain our resources, suck the healthcare right out from under us....and then fuck us over by stealing from us too.....


Why can't they go home to their OWN country and protest....Why does it have to be here when they're not even LEGAL and citizens of another country?
And if they're here to WORK.....why does my taxes go to paying thier medical bills and provide them with foodstamps?

I'm mean I don't know about yall...But I'm budgeted for 50$ a week in grocerys......all they have to do is cross a border illegally and they get wined and dined by the welfare system. If I cross the boarder into mexico will I get foodstamps and medicaid?

I could go on and on and on and on........

Hear! Hear! Great post.
And I too have been arguing with my husband about the (nation)-American business. If you are born in this country you are an American, nothing else. It is as simple as that. Why they have to call themselves African-Americans is beyond me. I used that, because that is the most prevalent. I guess I should just start calling myself German-American, or Welsh-American, or German-Welsh-American. You see where I'm going with this?

Hey if you wanted to get "technical" about it you could call me "Indian American". Meaning they (finders of the New world like English,Spanish, ect.) took away OUR whole country....killed us....off...or so they thought. Basically AMERICANIZED us. You don't see me trying to sell my "Indian American" heritage for sympathy. I mean in all practicality I have a lot I could be pissed off about @ the U.S...

Hmmmmmmmm...........

LOL

How true, Mayor Jimmy. I hear you on all counts. My friend was telling me the other day about a non-English-speaking illegal alien that somehow got a CDL license (how the hell?!?) and as he was driving, his trailer came unhitched and off his rig, right onto a car with a man and his six children. The family died in a fiery inferno behind him as he drove blithely on, ignoring all CB calls - in English, of course - telling him to stop his damn rig and help these poor people. Guess who drove on and never stopped, with the excuse that he doesn't speak English and didn't understand the CB calls?! Yeah, illegal aliens are SO necessary. My ass.
