Still Feel Sorry For All Of Those Illegal Immigrants?
Breaking Into Your House
A lady wrote the best letter in the editorials in ages!!! It explains things better than all the baloney you hear on TV.
Recently large demonstrations have taken place across the country protesting the fact that Congress is finally addressing the issue of illegal immigration. Certain people are angry that the US might protect its own borders, might make it harder to sneak into this country and, once here, to stay indefinitely.
Let me see if I correctly understand the thinking behind these protests.
Let's say I break into your house. Let's say that when you discover me in your house, you insist that I leave. But I say, "I've made all the beds and washed the dishes and did the laundry and swept the floors. I've done all the things you don't like to do. I'm hard-working and honest (except for when I broke into your house).
According to the protesters:
a. You are Required to let me stay in your house.
b. You are Required to add me to your family's insurance plan.
c. You are Required to Educate my kids.
d. You are Required to Provide other benefits to me and to my family.
e. My husband will do all of your yard work because he is also hard-working and honest, except for that breaking in part.
f. If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my friends who will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my RIGHT to be there.
g. It's only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than I do, and I'm just trying to better myself.
h. I'm a hard-working and honest, person, except for well, you know, I did break into your house.
i. And what a deal it is for me!!!
j. I live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of cold, uncaring, selfish, prejudiced, and bigoted behavior.
k. Oh yeah, I DEMAND that you learn MY LANGUAGE!!! (so you can communicate with me).
Why can't people see how ridiculous this is?
I am in no way for closing America's borders to people who want to come and live, and work, and raise their families, and contribute to America's work force and culture legally.
Perhaps, one of America's greatest strengths is that we are a melting pot of numerous cultures blended together to make us the great and culturaly rich country that we are. The numerous immigrants that have entered our nation and become citizens, Italians, Irish, German, British, Mexican, Canadian, and countless others, have all contributed to making us the great, innovative country that we are.
However, for those illegal immigrants who think that they somehow have some right to be here and thumb their noses at all of those legal immigrants, both past and present, deserve to be escorted out of our country. If they illegally enter our borders again, then they should expect to be imprisoned. Indefinately.
And I'm not advocating a air-conditioned, resort stay complete with computers and libraries and fine meals either. Prison work camps would be more appropriate.
If you want to come to America legally, then you are more than welcome.
But, if you want to come here illegally and expect us to provide hospitals, schools, social security benefits and U.S dollars for you to send back home, think again. You are nothing more than the theif that the analogy above demonstrates that you are.
America doesn't need your kind here. Stay home theif and stay out of my house, which you didn't build, or pay for.
