Illegal Immigrants Suck
With all the furor over the US government’s sudden attention on illegal immigrants, we’ve now been threatened with them closing down our cities. According to a Reuters news story on Yahoo (among many others), the organizer of a rally in California claims that illegal immigrants should walk out of school, out of work, and onto the streets to show their support. These rallies are supposed to hit many of the big cities in the US, and are supposed to make the operations of those cities grind to a halt.
Do the rally organizers think that business and schools should not take notice? Should the people who walk off the job to go to one of these marches have no retaliation? Many supporters are saying that the illegal immigrants should be granted a full pardon. That they should suffer NO consequences for their illegal acts. That they should just be blessed with full citizenship, open arms, and a big huge “SORRY” message for being treated like criminals or trespassers. Ummm, don’t they realize that the illegal aliens are, in fact, guilty of trespassing and committing a crime? Doesn’t the name “illigal aliens” give it away a tiny bit? Those people who leave work or school should be penalized the same way anyone else would. Don’t allow them extra leeway because they are out “supporting their rights” – they are illegals, they don’t have the same rights citizens do. Do they really need more rights just because they’re already illegally here?
This really pisses me off. Get a clue people!!!!! This is not your country, you don’t get all the privileges and rights given to the citizens of a country just because you live here? Unless you’re going to follow the rules that are already in place, you have NO RIGHT to demand special treatment. There are rules in place for immigrating here. USE THEM! Everyone else has to follow them, what makes you think you are so special? What makes you think that because you’ve evaded deportation for this long, that you have the right to demand we let you stay and become legal citizens?
From what I understand, most illegal immigrants in the US have come here from Mexico. They come in via several methods – to include walking across the border, being smuggled in vehicles, going through tunnels, etc. They come here because their life in their native country isn’t as nice as they would like it to be, and they want to come to the US for money and the jobs. Guess what – there are a LOT of people who do that, and they aren’t all from Latin America. People come here legally from all over the world! Maybe you’ve heard of those places – like India, Japan, China, Russia, etc. That’s great! That’s the way our great country got most of it’s population – from people immigrating! You know that Statue Of Liberty thingy? Yeah, on Ellis Island in New York. It was like a beacon calling in immigrants. Now it’s regarded as an object to say that we’re required to take anyone in, no matter how they got here. Do you think that you are somehow better than everyone else, and that you deserve special treatment?
On occasion, illegals are caught and sent back home. Where is the big screaming fuss over that? Why all people getting all pissed off now? Just because they are now being noticed nationwide? OK, fine with me. Get pissed off. Stop working (for money). Stop going to school (for free). Actually, why don’t you stop getting medical treatment for free too. It’s not like you can stop paying taxes (‘you’ meaning most, not all). Stop getting a free ride in my country, and GO THE FUCK AWAY. Pardon my language… No, wait – don’t. I’m pissed. I’m pissed off at the employers that hire illegals. I’m pissed at the government’s lack of effort to keep them out. I’m pissed of that the very same people that are getting a free ride at my expense are now upset for getting caught.
I’m sure there are nice ways we can work out this silly little immigration problem. First and foremost, put in measures to keep more illegal people out. Yes, put up a fence, put up more guards, patrol the border, and require people that don’t have a valid visa to get out. Follow the rules or go away. Next, for the people that are already here, make them pay a fine – they’ve been leeching off our society for too long, make them pay some back. Have steps for them to become citizens, if they so desire. If they don’t really want to be Americans, then they can GO AWAY. You know those jobs they have? The business that pays them needs to get hit hard! For every illegal (undocumented, whatever) employee, they must pay a fine that would equal all the taxes they didn’t pay. They must pay the costs of the investigations that happen. They must pay the cost to deport every one of them – even if they aren’t deported, it’s the principle. They must also be cited for breaking the law, and a standardized penalty paid – let’s say a fine of $5000 per illegal worker. No breaks given. If it kills the company, that’s just too bad, they shouldn’t have broken the law in the first place. These businesses (that survive) should be checked on periodically as well – they did it before, they will probably do it again.
Believe it or not, I don’t have a problem with any race. I don’t care if these illegal immigrants are from Mexico, Cuba, Australia, Nepal or freaking Antarctica. I don’t care if their skin is green, pink, brown, mocha, vanilla, yellow, tan, or plaid. What I do care about, and what does piss me off, is how some people think they are entitled to more than their fare share, or that think society owes them something just for being alive. It doesn’t matter what the race is.
Because most of this post is directed at people of the Latino persuasion, don’t think I don’t like them. I have many friends that are Mexican and Cuban (no, not “token” friends either). Guess what – they are here legally! If you come to this country, come in the right way or get kicked out. Don’t expect handouts – if you want something, you have to work for it. Don’t be a drain on my society, I don’t want to support you. If you come here illegally, you need to be kicked out.
Maybe I should be a little more sympathetic. They are just fighting for more rights, right? Don’t they have the right to punish us for trying to make them follow the rules? Pshaw, silly us… It’s not like they can go back home, right? Right? Oh, never mind…
