The Truth Does Hurt: Illegals Going Home Will Be Better For Them and America

with 3 comments

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame,
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

by Emma Lazarus, New York City, 1883

As a first generation American, I heard the story of my mother coming over on the boat and seeing the Statue of Liberty as the ship docked. It was a harrowing experience for her, with her thick accent, coming to this country and not knowing a soul. She had a piece of paper with a name on it of a person, a woman she had never met, who was going to allow her to stay until my mother had other arrangements. My mother became a citizen in 1960 in Washington DC. She obeyed the laws.

When the federal government does not enforce the law, then states must act in its own protection. We are a federalist country, not a democracy. We are made up of states and those states have rights. Arizona’s Governor Brewer asked the federal government in writing five times to intercede and do their job. NO RESPONSE. How can these states defend the borders of our country without the federal government doing their job? Florida has 1700 FHP deputies to help law enforcement to cover 65,000 miles while one sheriff in Texas has 17 deputies to cover 5,000 miles on the border. TX, NM, AZ, CA are overrun with millons of illegals draining the state budgets that should go for its own taxpayers. Businesses and industries are closing because of the fiscal debt of taking care of illegal aliens.

The financial price Americans are paying in welfare and benefits to unskilled workers in this country is a staggering $3.75 trillion dollars. The true cost of illegal aliens to this burden is tens of billions more dollars, if not hundreds of billions.

Current immigration practices, both legal and illegal, operate like a system of trans-national welfare outreach bringing millions of fiscally dependent individuals into the U.S. This policy needs to be changed. U.S. immigration policy should encourage high-skill immigration and strictly limit low-skill immigration. In general, government policy should limit immigration to those who will be net fiscal contributors, avoiding those who will increase poverty and impose new costs on overburdened U.S. taxpayers.

No other country in the world, including Mexico allows illegal aliens to come and go, get jobs, use their schools, health care for routine care for free, provide day care, social security, and collect unemployment. We won’t even go into the extent of crime that is brought into the country with murders, rape, theft, and drugs. But this video has the facts:

Kidnapping Once Every 35 Hours, One in Five Teenagers Using Drugs Supplied By Mexican Smugglers.

This is not Obama’s fault, it’s President Reagan’s fault in 1980 in giving 5 million criminals amnesty after they had broken the law by entering this country illegally. What was the outcome? 20 million more illegal aliens. It needs to be stopped now. Bleeding heart liberals and the compassionate uninformed who think they are being righteous are only killing America’s golden goose which lays the golden egg of opportunity for those who want to come to this country.

Employers of illegal aliens should be arrested. It’s already been seen that when crackdown on employers who hire slave labor (illegals) or the economy declines, they return home. When a company in Phoenix had 300 illegal employees deported, hundreds of AMERICANS applied for the jobs. The statement that illegals do jobs Americans wont do is rhetoric and a lie. After Katrina in New Orleans, companies were hiring illegals to rebuild the city. If even ICE, the U.S. Immigrant and Customs Enforcement hires illegals, why should regular businesses comply?

The Arizona immigration law does not allow law enforcement to randomly stop anyone. But like the seat belt law which for an entire year after it was passed, a car could not be stopped exclusively for the passengers not wearing seat belts, police cannot stop someone because they “look like an illegal.” Whatever looking like an illegal may be… How about some common sense here, folks?

Maybe if we had 20 million blonde, blue eyed Scandanavians infiltrating our country illegally, taking jobs, committing crimes, we would be looking for that profile but we are not. The massive amounts of illegal aliens are coming in through the borders along Mexico. Just as I carry my ID with me at all times, I would have no qualms about being stopped and asking for it. When I travel to other countries, the same procedure can happen. In America, when a car full of people with thick Irish brogues driving a car erratically get pulled over, they are asked for their driver’s licenses. If they don’t have one, they go to jail until the police can figure out who and where they should be. That’s the law. Do we have 20 million illegal Irish people in this country?

No other country in the world treats illegal aliens as benignly or as compassionately as this country does. All illegals, whether they are from Ireland, Britain, Middle East, Scandanavia, China, Australia, or Mexico etc should be sent home. Progressives and Liberals, including Democrats and the Catholic Church, condone this slavery, and help exploitation and abuse of humans by being enslaved, and encourage criminal acts of entering our country illegally when they offer support and assistance and do not state outright that illegal immigration is a criminal act that cannot be tolerated. We are abetting the impoverished, illiterate, and those uncapable of being self-sufficient to come to this country to get welfare benefits that they cannot get in their own country. We are allowing unfit parents and pregnant mothers who have anchor babies and bring innocent children to this country by means that threaten their very lives. Thousands of illegal immigrants die trying to come to this country every year. Authorities in all businesses, political leadership and in the Church should be encouraging other countries in Latin America, the Caribbean, and around the world, to clean up their own governments and take care of their own citizens so that they don’t have to come to our country to eat and find a job unless they do it legally.

Democrats have long kept generations of families enslaved since the beginning of our country and through the false benevolence of welfare programs. Obama’s partisan agenda of bringing amnesty to Congress will allow him to enslave another generation of ignorant, welfare-beholdened, ethnic Democrats for a powerful voting bloc to let him and Democrats retain their grip on American families.

Governor Brewer is a courageous woman, who is acting on the behalf of Arizona’s constituents. Arizona’s citizens applaud her efforts. If the actions of Arizona get the federal government to start enforcing their own laws, then so be it. But our country cannot continue the way it is now. America needs to take care of her herself without making her own American hardworking citizens the real poor, wretched, and homeless.

  1. Yes…I agree. I am a 32 year old mother of four and full time college student. I have been out of work for a few weeks now. Every time I apply for a job I am asked to take a survey. This survey is called a Tax Credit Survey. I am asked questions regarding wether or not I am a welfare/unemployment recipient and if I am The questionnaire continues. Then it informs me that I do not qualify and I hear nothing back. Which is a shame that because I am not living off the government I am almost discriminated when it comes to jobs. Which brings me to the point that I would have a job if 35% of the Florida job market that isn’t paid under the table didn’t go to people that came illegally and are now citizens by grace.

  2. I like your blog . I would probably quibble with the figures and sources if if looked at them harder but we mostly agree…deport the illegals, no amnesty, and enforce the current laws against employing illegals.

    I continue to disagree with the dragnet method in this bill. I went back and looked at the law again and did not see the part about the police contact only being allowed when the law has already been broken. I did read several blogs which said that was the case but also saw an interview with one of the republican legislative researchers who said that was not the case or the intent. “Lawful contact” is any contact a law enforcement officer makes that is not illegal – presumably they were trying to prevent home invasion without a warrant or other illegal police activity?

    A statement from the Republican House majority’s Homeland Security research analyst, Rene Guillen , who stated in a phone message in response to a question about the nature of lawful contact:

    “Lawful contact is definitely different than reasonable suspicion in terms of the initiation of the contact. So lawful contact is essentially any interaction a police officer may have with an individual through the normal legal, lawful course of the performance of their duties. So it wouldn’t just be those suspected of crimes. It could be victims, witnesses or just people who are lawfully interacting with the police officer where through the course of that contact they are able to build reasonable suspicion and therefore inquire. “

    If the Arizona legislature had meant to require that the police first suspect a person of an unrelated offense before asking about immigration status it could have clearly put that requirement in the statute, but it did not.

    My problem is the slippery slope we find ourselves on if we give the police this power when we don’t have to. I too have been places were I was asked to present ID in foreign country. It allows them to track activity and intimidate at will. If we have to go there to get a handle on the illegal activity we should but I don’t think we are there yet.

    Stop the employment and the most will go home, the rest will be making a living illegally selling drugs, etc. Arrest them for this activity and when they complete their sentences, deport them.

    I am not interested in protecting the illegals, I am interested in insuring that the legal Mexican Americans enjoy the same freedoms as the rest of us.

    As an aside, I do find it ironic that some of the people that are so happy about the passage of this bill are same ones who were complaining so loudly about the invasion of privacy caused by the mandatory census which is after all anonymous. In my opinion the former is much more dangerous than the latter.

  3. I think the borders should be secured and the federal government should be doing something about that. Also, the issue of smuggling from Mexico and South America should definitely be a higher priority for the Obama Administration, but that’s a separate issue than immigration.

    Where I disagree with you is your stance on deporting all illegal immigrants. I know illegals so I speak from my own experiences. Most of these people just want to work. If they could work and pay taxes legally they would. If they didn’t have to work under the table to provide for their families, they wouldn’t. If there was a way for them to live her legally they would. Mexico is one of the only countries that has a waiting list for immigrants. How can the government expect people to wait years, even decades to come to this country?

    I do believe something should be done about illegal immigration and it is a problem. I think the effect you claim that illegal immigrants have on the economy is exaggerated. I’ve lived in California for the past three years, but I regularly visit Arizona as I was born there and my family all live there. It’s a ghost town. It’s not the illegal immigrants that have cause the businesses to close, rather the lack of illegal immigrants. It’s their hard earned money that supports these businesses and with all of them being shipped back across the border the economy of the state of Arizona is dwindling. I don’t know the numbers, but I’ve seen it with my own eyes.

    As far as tax-payer benefits going to illegals, if they were allowed to get real jobs, then they would qualify for employer provided benefits for things like health care instead of turning to government assistance programs.

    Illegal immigrants are people not numbers, and if you look at them as so you will see the situation in a new light. Their countries do not provide the opportunities that this country does, so they come in search of a better life. Take your family to live in Mexico for a week and maybe you’d understand better. Is it the US government’s responsibility to take care of them? No. But perhaps we could work with the Mexican government to figure out a solution. And a big part of that problem is the aforementioned drug smuggling, which claims so many innocent lives in Mexico every day.

    People are people and we should do all we can to help others. God bless.
