If the majority of Hispanics in the streets making a spectacle of themselves are illegal immigrants (“undocumented people” for those liberals who can’t handle anything but P.C. speech) then, they have as much credibility as criminals protesting against their incarceration.
Are we to believe that it is every Hispanic in the world’s right to illegally enter the U.S. and live and work here without needing to comply with the immigration process that the rest of the world throughout history has had to? If so, they have a lot of gall, and should not only be ashamed of themselves for proclaiming such an arrogant, ludicrous case, but should be ignored.
Hispanics, and for that matter all peoples are welcome in America, provided they come to live and work here via legal means. America is not like Europe. America finds her greatness in the diversity of her population. Although it is changing, traditionally European countries were distinctly populated. France was a country of, mainly French persons. Spain was comprised mainly of Spanish, etc. America has been a giant melting pot of persons from different countries and cultures, who have all made their contributions toward making America the great country that she is.
The notion that we owe it to those who sneak into this country the space to live and jobs, healthcare etc. is flat out wrong. It isn’t fair to those who went through the legal immigration process to be here. It isn’t fair to the average American tax payer.
Let me put it this way. If you discovered people helping themselves to your garden, or things in your refrigerator, or putting up tents to live on your property what would you do? You would call the police to have them removed from your property on the charge of trespassing. The same is true with illegal aliens. They are trespassing and should be treated like the criminals that they are. If they really love America, as some of the protestors were proclaiming, they would do whatever it took to be here legally. At the very least they would obtain a green card.
Some Hispanics are also upset with the proposal for the erection of a fence along the U.S. Mexico border. God forbid we should place any obstacles in front of illegal aliens. I see the fence as not only a long overdue, common sense approach, but in this post 9/11 world essential to our National Security. There are some very dangerous terrorists that we need to prevent from being able to sneak into this country. For the sake of national defense, this trumps the argument of Hispanics whose feelings are hurt because other Hispanics, who might plan on sneaking into this country, would be inconvenienced by such a wall.
