With all the ruckus these days over illegal immigration , I can’t seem to figure out what is wrong with people immigrating here legally? Why do liberals seem to think it is OK for someone to sneak into this country and become a citizen without due process and following the immigration laws.
This isn’t rocket science, they are law breakers when they sneak in, is there something wrong with punishing some one when they violate the law, isn’t that what we do in America ? America has always been a nation of immigrants, just as every country in the world is,almost every one has immigrated from somewhere. But almost all countries , even third world countries, try to make sure incoming guests are legal. Are we sinking to a fourth world country?
Try sneaking into Mexico and see what happens. I know for a fact that you had better be legal in Australia or you will be asked to leave. Do the left not see the ramifications of people coming here undocumented? Didn’t they learn anything from 9/11?
I guess I can answer my own question, the only thing the left sees is more voters, by letting them come in uncontested, they feel the illegal immigrant will vote for the left. The rebuttal often is that the conservatives want them because of cheap labor. Some of this may be true, however liberals own just as many if not more businesses as conservatives, and are just as wealthy, so it behooves them to also find so called cheap labor. The left is supposed to be all for workers rights and increasing the lot of the working stiff, how does that philosophy fit in with paying someone below minimum wage? They are supposed to be about equality, Is that fair to the American worker?
How about being fair to the immigrant who comes here legally and becomes a citizen the old fashioned way, by working for it.
As an example, Francisco came here 5 years ago from Mexico, and spoke no English, in the past five years he has taught himself English, bussed tables, washed dishes as well as other odd jobs and began working in the electrical trades.
He now has a successful pool repair business , plus he does minor home repair. Francisco has done it the correct way and by doing so is an asset to the United States . He hasn’t taken any short cuts.
By allowing aliens to come here illegally and stay, we are hitting people like Francisco below the knees. People come here just to have a baby. Some hospitals in our border states have more kids born to illegal aliens than are born to American citizens, who pays for that?
Why should any one even think about coming legally when we allow illegals to stay by granting immigrants amnesty? We tried that in the 1980s, granted amnesty to 3 million people, we now have 12 million. Looks like a step backward to me.
Don’t know about you, but Francisco looks like a better choice for America, he has my business.
