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.
