Pandering Politicians

I’d like to weigh in on an important topic that’s gotten some press lately. That’s the topic of illegal immigration. There are many differing opinions on the topic, which is why I’m going to cut through all of the crap and settle this thing once and for all. If you’re a reasonable, intelligent person (and not an illegal immigrant), you’ll probably agree with everything I’m about to say.

First, let me make a distinction. Immigration is how we all got here, unless you happen to be a Souix or Cherokee… Lots of people whine about how we stole the country from the native Americans, but I say we killed them fair and square. That’s how land is acquired in this world we live in. If you’re not smart enough or tough enough to defend it, then you can’t spend the next 250 years complaining about it… but hey, that’s just one man’s opinion.

My ancestors immigrated here. They came from Ireland, Germany, and Sweden. Immigration is a good thing, because it gets the best and brightest from other countries to move here and then OUR country gets the benefit of having the world’s best and brightest.

Illegal immigration is a tad different. First, it’s ILLEGAL. There is a reason we have “LEGAL” immigration… it’s so people can immigrate to America and find good jobs and experience the American dream. Second, the “best and the brightest” do not illegally immigrate to America. In fact, by it’s very nature, the people who immigrate illegally are the most desperate, most depraved criminals that our neighbor countries have to offer. If you say “Incredipete Incredipete Incredipete… they are hard working individuals who just need a break!!!”

I say this: If they immigrated here illegally, their mere existence in this country MAKES them a criminal. They have bypassed the legal channels for immigration. This is bad for three reasons: 1. It discourages those who are using proper channels. 2. It waters down social benefits to Americans who work hard and pay taxes. 3. IT’s AGAINST THE LAW, IDIOTS!

Now they are considering an Amnesty which they plan to call something else so people don’t freak out. 80% of American citizens, all of which immigrated, most of whom immigrated legally, think that illegal aliens should be packed in styrofoam peanuts and shipped back to their home country… postage due.

I’m in that camp. These people drive up healthcare costs, soak up social benefits, and yes… they take jobs that they don’t deserve. They don’t deserve to pick our fruit if they are a criminal… a fugitive. They don’t deserve to take those wages and send them back to their home country… propping up their country’s economy while depleting ours.

I’m firmly in the camp of: Send them all home and have a guest worker program. Build a wall on the boarders and shoot anyone who tries to go over it. Authorize the Coast Guard to shoot anyone entering the country illegally by water. If you’re caught here illegally, you lose your right to ever have a guest worker pass again. If you’re caught here a second time, you go to a US Military prison. If you’re an American employer and you employ an illegal, you should go to jail. Period.

The US economy and social structure is no longer strong enough to support the benefits of 20 million illegal aliens who have come here to steal what doesn’t belong to them, and that they don’t deserve to have.

If we don’t address this problem head-on, we’ll end up getting ONLY the desperate and depraved…

So slap your maid and call her Espinoza.

    Smart commentary, Incredipete. I am with you most of the way… but I’m slightly softer on it in this way: I think when we ship them back, postage due, they should receive a packet of info and help, in their language, to help them apply for the guest worker program. That gives them an absolutely fair chance to do the right thing. I also think death is a rather steep price to pay for the crime of illegally imigrating, but maybe it would serve as a deterrant once word got out that everything was being fully enforced. That’s a lot of the problem of crime in our country. We’re soft on crime and all the criminals know it. One more thing… I think there could be circumstances in which an employer has no idea the employee is illegal. The illegal immigrant may have faked their papers pretty well. Now, if they are proven to be purposefully using illegal immigrants for cheap labor, then zap em. A company should be able to show an employee file with the proper paper work in place. If a company does the right thing almost all the time and gets fooled by one tricky illegal, then the record keeping would show that this was a fluke and not the rule. Make sense?

    Incredipete, one of these days I would like to see you give your opinion about what should be done about the problem of gangs and gang violence. The illegal alien topic reminds me of that problem, because I think our law enforcement could do something about all the gang crap if they seriously enforced the law. I don’t want America to be like an enslaved, unfree place, but I would like to see the law come down HARD on gang violence. They should be finding a way to stop gang participation, and any kind of gang related crime. Gangs need to be neutralized. It’s like rats. If you let them get too prolific, it’s harder to get rid of them. Just a topic suggestion, for some time when you are feeling bored. 🙂

    I suppose my comments should be longer than they usually are. But since I tend you agree with just about everything you write the only thing I can really say is “Amen, brother!” You always keep me smiling. By the way. My house, May 20, 7pm -whenever. Luoa, byob and Hawaiian atire. It’s my graduation party! Woop, woop. Bring that Jenna girl too. She’s cool.

    Yeah, again I agree with you and the Teets. We need to get tougher on crime and enforce the laws we already have. And damn! Looks like I’m going to miss another party. 🙁

    I disagree.

    We don’t need to wall up our borders. We need to expand them. We do this by telling the Mexicans that if they don’t stop their own from coming into our country we will come into theirs.

    We did it to my People, Yes I am 1/4 Cheyenne, and I say it is high time we expand our borders and our tax base. If we can’t stop the flow of people then we need to annex them. Look at what it would do to our vacation rights? not to mention the army, we make them learn english, and hand them a gun and send their asses to Iraq. They want some American Dream then they need to EARN it. Blood Sweat and Tears. Not welfare and lettuce picking.

    Same goes for those fucking Canadians. Hell everyone but thge fucking French I say.

    Hell look how much money we could make just off taxing their resort communities.

    Nightmare, I hate to admit it, but I think you may have just swayed me with your argument. I like your plan much better than mine. Rather than isolationism, you are a proponent of world domination… always a plus.

    I see you’re not mincing any words – good for you.

    I’ve had the interesting experience of having dinner w/ 3 Mexican immigrants whom I’m 99.9% sure are illegal. They are laying flagstone around my new pool. They have been very professional, courteous, and unbelievably hard working.

    Unfortunately, their employer doesn’t provide work gloves, goggles, breathing masks, etc. I asked “why haven’t you learned English”? Actually, I said in broken spanish ‘Por que no estudio Ingles?’. The answer was no time. They work 7 days a week from what seems to be dawn until dusk. Anyway, this encounter has softened my stance just a little, so perhaps an effective approach would be to:

    1)close the borders
    2)mandate registration of every illegal
    3)put them in the queue towards a work permit after a background check
    4)require local law enforcement to assist in the apprehension/arrest of unregistered residents
    5)add an employer-paid tax (similar to FICA) for registered aliens that will go to pay for social services
    6)permanently deport any registered alien convicted of a felony

    Gees Incredipete… thought you were a little softer than this and to think Raquel counts you as a friend. 😉

  8. April 4, 2006 at 7:28 pm

    I wasn’t under the impression that Raquel had swam across the Rio Grande! I’m pretty sure she learned English, too.

    I’m mostly concerned about all those darned illegal Canadians!

    Glad to see you hanging around, though!

    I don’t mind the illegal immigrents, its those damn foreigners that I can’t stand.

  10. April 5, 2006 at 2:35 pm

    Yeah, really, those illegal immigrants are taking all of the good jobs…. I can’t for the life of me get hired to sell oranges at the freeway ramp!!

    So, let’s see how *I* immigrated to the U.S. There I was, college-educated, work-experienced, had English as my first language … and I could not get a green card … unless I had about $100,000 to buy my way in. I couldn’t get employer sponsorship. My tourist visa expired. I stayed illegally and finally had a marriage of convenience (not to be confused with my former husband) for which I paid by overpaying my taxes and giving him the refunds. Meantime, the U.S. government was taking in boatloads of refugees who could not speak English, who were illiterate in their OWN language, who were oftentimes middle-aged or older. They were given welfare and passports … and allowed to sponsor even more of their family members to immigrate legally.

    Am I bitter? of course not, I don’t REALLY want to sell oranges …

    I think Danjerus is the only illegal immigrant in the entire country who “kinda” agrees with my entry… Good show dearie… you know I was talking about the damned Canadians!

    I agree with you but I just can’t get one thought out of my mind….if we throw them all out, who’s going to build the wall?

  13. April 6, 2006 at 5:43 pm

    Well, yah, I DO kinda agree with you. I think that illegal immigration is much like the “war” on drugs: it will never succeed because it is in actuality a convenience for the country in that it supplies us with an unlimited core of cheap labour. Labour that 99% of Americans will never do — not even the homeless. I don’t see any reason why there shouldn’t be more realistic regulations regarding immigration. To not allow somebody like me to stay here when there was no possibility of my claiming welfare or unemployment was just asinine. How ironic that my tax dollars ended up paying my business partner to marry me so I could work here. I believe that we *should* allow immigrants here to do manual labour and that they should have work permits and that they should be required to take English language classes and that they should pay taxes based on their income. Then again … Screw everyone else. I’m here, let’s close the damn borders.
