There are many issues out there which get me, shall we say, a little ticked off. Illegal immigration probably takes the cake though. I despise illegal immigration as much as I despise cold, rainy weather (and spiders). What gets me ticked off even more about this issue are the morons who actually support illegal immigration. “We’re all illegal immigrants! We’re all just humans bro! They just want a better life! They work the jobs that nobody else will!” I could go on with the mind-numbing talking points illegal immigration supporters have, but time is a luxury that none of us have enough of.

So, what tweaked my nerves this morning? This story out of the AJC talked about how illegal immigrants blocked traffic yesterday in downtown Atlanta to protest, you guessed it, anti-illegal immigration laws being proposed by Georgia lawmakers. If I was the one in charge of this situation, I would have fired one of those giant nets at the crowd of protesters a have them all arrested for disorderly conduct. Since most of them were proudly proclaiming they were illegal immigrants, I would have them deported after being humiliated in public.

“Some spoke in favor of the DREAM Act, a congressional measure that would have given young illegal immigrants a path to legal status if they enrolled in college or joined the military. That measure failed in Congress last year. More than a hundred college students, civil rights activists and others marched around the Georgia State University campus before several of them sat in the middle of Courtland and unfurled a large red and white banner that declared: “We will no longer remain in the shadows.”

What is the one glaring issue out of this story though? Besides that illegal immigrants demand they be treated as citizens and that they will no longer “be in the shadows”? It is the fact that illegal immigrants in this country do not fear the law. Why? Because we don’t  enforce our immigration laws, that’s why. You can get in more trouble for having an unused crack pipe in your glove compartment than being in this country illegally. But if you break into this country, you can send your baby’s momma to the hospital to give birth and then, walla! You got yourself a U.S. citizen. Or, you can break into our country already having kids. Then, you can send those kids to our public school system. You can get a job. You can get a driver’s licence. You can rent property. You can get government assistance. Hell, you might even be able to get in-state tuition here soon. And best of all, you can block traffic in state capitals demanding that we give you more!

It’s time we start treating illegal immigrants like the criminals they are. Next time there is a rally where people are proudly proclaiming they are illegal while disrupting the peace, nail them with pepper spray. Then arrest and deport them. I don’t care if that seems harsh or not. If it does seem harsh, then you are living in a warped reality. We are in a deep hole right now as a country. Illegal immigrants are a huge financial burden to a country that at this point cant even afford toilet paper for the White House. We are also still experiencing very high unemployment. We must take care of our own citizens, everyone else can take a hike. It’s time that our leaders in Washington grow a pair and start speaking the truth about this issue instead of playing politics in order to “not upset the Hispanic vote”. My theory? There are a lot of Hispanics who migrated here legally and despise those who cheat the system. Stand up for those people, not the criminals protesting in the streets.

The Fourteenth amendment states in Section 1,

 

Section 1 - “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Passed by Congress June 13, 1866. Ratified July 9, 1868.


It was written after the Civil War...I believe to make known that children born from previous slaves were automatically citizens.  It needs to be amended, along other amendments (like taxation) that were written after the Civil War.

Our federal government is simple GUILTY of nonfeasance, which means not doing what it is supposed to do. Our government is not enforcing the current immigration laws, and every president since the Reagan amnesty should be prosecuted for not doing his job.

Everyone please ask the anti-American liberal judges how is it that something ILLEGAL can produce something LEGAL. In other words an illegal woman cannot give birth to a legal baby. The courts simply ruled against  American citizens in favor of illegal foreigners. 

Shame on the courts and shame on our elected officials who are doing nothing about it.

After the original 912 March in DC, walking back towards my hotel I saw a group of illegals holding a protest and demanding their "rights" at the foot of the Washington Monument! I wanted to know just who the yell granted them permission to "protest"! So did a lot of the marchers sitting on the wall across the street watching it.

Further along the way I came across some marchers gathering as close as allowed (they had the approach to the White House blocked way back) when the helicopters came in. When the helicopter flew overhead I joined a group of others in greeting it with our hand signs...double eagles for the chicken in chief who left town for the day.

I know that the drug dealers profit big time by the "War on Drugs".  But when the Bush administration managed to imprison two border patrol agents (Ramos and Campion) for doing their job, and freed a well know drug lord...all of this with the help of our judicial system...I can't help but wounder who else profits from "The War On Drugs".

Illegals come here for many reasons...some to work, some to escape the violence in their own countries, some for terrorism, some for human and drug trafficking, and some for the generous welfare system we have. 

 

Some come here because NAFTA destroyed their businesses and farm land when global businesses pulled out of South America for cheaper labor in China. Sound familiar? It is happening all over the world just as it is here.

Illegals have been crossing our borders for generations for work, and it was not a problem until the government began incentavising the process through welfare, and other legislation...see video below.



 

As a business owner who has always hired legal workers, we are forced to compete with employers who have their low employee wages subsidized by us, the taxpayer through welfare, free medical and schools.  I am not as angry at the illegal who comes here to work as I am at the politicians and business owners who profit from it at our expense.  They need to be ashamed of this behavior because it is destroying this Country.

This is and continues to be an attack on the foundation of our nation.  I just don't understand what part of "illegal" are Americans failing to recognize!  Compound that notion with a body of elected officials decrying those opposed to amnesty are racist, bigots, or other such colorful terms. Europe, France specifically, has practiced liberal immigration policies for decades and now are second guessing the policy as the country is broke, government is failing, and riots abound.

The only way we can address this issue is to educate with the facts.  Last year I met a wonderful young  woman at one of the many rallies.  She came here legally from Cuba and had a very powerful statement, "Come through the front door not the window.  If you try to come through my window it won't end well."
