Times are tough. Everyone is worried about money, their pension, job (if they still have one), car (will their brand exist anymore), how to afford college or at least to help with the costs for their kids. Now the president & congress want to hand MILLIONS of criminals a 'free pass'. In 1986, 2.8 million illegal immigrants were given amnesty & 23 years later, about 20 million are looking for amnesty. Why have we ignored almost a million people a year to stealing into our country? Why have officials overlooked this?
DO NOT call me a racist or a bigot or anti-immigrant or prejudiced. I am none of those & have had enough of that ridiculous misdirection!!!!! The magician has left the building......
When running for prez, bho talked about the 20 million here in the U.S. illegally. The jobless number for Americans is now at least 16+ million, with more jobs being cut every day. Will we have double that after amnesty is granted & those without jobs apply for benefits & social services? Where will the money come from to support them? Taxpayers of course. YOU.
Have you ever broken the law? Speeding - eventually you will be caught & ticketed. Drinking & Driving - see the previous answer & add a trip to jail. Now consider breaking into someone's home. Have you done that? Has it been done to you? Did they take things you worked hard to get? Did your insurance costs go up?
Well, it is about to happen to every United States Citizen & LEGAL immigrant; your home has been already been broken into & now come the repair bills plus the criminals will walk free. Whatever taxes you pay, be ready to 'be patriotic' & pay more.
Also, could someone - anyone - tell me when illegals (criminals) had the right to DEMAND their 'rights'? What rights? They protest 'inhumane' U.S. immigration policies -- EXCUSE ME? What country would allow illegals to protest in the streets demanding THEIR rights, what THEY are owed, flying the flag of their (origin) country on a pole ABOVE an upside-down U.S. flag (signal for distress) if it was flown at all? In any other country they would be arrested or worse.
Who decided this was the way to gain sympathy for illegals? What it did was anger ordinary people, the usually silent ones. So at the next rally, having realized those outside of Hollywood were not supportive, country of origin flags were less prominently displayed, they waved little U.S. flags for cameras but then threw them in the street or bushes (personally witnessed this). They still DEMANDED their 'rights'.
Again, I ask - what RIGHTS & from whom are they owed? Another absurd part: students leaving schools, without permission, to march in protests were given extra credit for 'participating in the democratic process'. Those who chose to stay in school got no extra credit. That is discrimination!
Now, right now, congress is preparing to grant amnesty. Forgive all illegals, even gang members if they say they are no longer a gang member. If there are strings, they will be made of the thinnest thread & meaningless. They plan to hand criminal aliens -- they DID break FEDERAL laws, not 'civil' (Napolitano you ignorant biotch) -- a free pass, a get-out-of-jail-free card. There is no incentive, want or need to become part of the 'melting pot' of America, to pledge allegiance to this country.
Some truly ARE wanting to be a full, recognized citizen because they love this country as their own. Some have enlisted in the armed forces prepared to make the sacrifices to protect our nation. I admire them & will support their citizenship. It is the ones who are here to merely 'take' whatever they can get - them I have a problem with. Of course, I despise anyone, citizen or not, who believes they are 'owed' anything simply because they exist. That is the message of the majority of the marchers - I 'owe' them because they are here.
No other country in the world would allow this. If I illegally enter another country or overstay my VISA, I will be found & sent home, if lucky, or to prison. Once my prison sentence is up, I will be deported, usually at my own expense.
Illegals broke the laws of our nation by sneaking into our country or overstaying a VISA. They knowingly broke the law. Now, they will be rewarded. How is this fair?
Immigrants who have been waiting for years for approval to come to our country LEGALLY, are now being sent to the back of the bus. This is discrimination so how is this fair?
Since someone broke the law by coming & staying here illegally, what other laws will they ignore or break? Who will be the 1st lawyer to use the defense "my client was an illegal, now legal, but just didn't understand it was wrong to drink & drive/speed/burglarize/rob/rape/assault/kill/commit a crime in this country."
Those most angry are the actual immigrants who applied, followed the law, waited for permission, & finally came here to legally work & become citizens. They are asking why they had to follow the law. They wonder why they had to wait, why they have to learn English.
Amnesty was granted during Reagan. Now the problem has mushroomed & D.C. is looking to grant amnesty again.
How long before it has to be done again? How many will be given a free pass the next round?
How many more people can YOU support? Get ready....you will be sick when you find out how much more you will have to pay.....
