Illegal Immigration Gone Wild

Maybe someone could explain to me what “rights” illegal immigrants in the United States believe they should be entitled to and how they have come to the conclusion they should have any?

How about me, do I have a right to live in a country where the borders are secured? Do I have a right not to pay for public school educations, healthcare or any other services now offered to people in the country illegally? Do our immigration laws matter or are they simply “guidelines” that can be overlooked to suit the individual?

I simply don’t get why there is any controversy over the need for tougher immigration laws and penalties for breaking them. So far the current laws on the books haven’t stopped the flow of illegal immigration and the amnesty program in the mid ‘80’s seems only to have made matters worse. Why would our leaders in Washington even considering similar solutions that we know have failed miserably? I’m not in the minority on this issue, the vast majority of my fellow countrymen agree.
A Gallup Poll (March 27) finds 80 percent of the public wants the federal government to get tougher on illegal immigration.

An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll (March 10-13) found 59 percent opposing a guest-worker proposal, and 71 percent would more likely vote for a congressional candidate who would tighten immigration controls.

An IQ Research poll (March 10) found 92 percent saying that securing the U.S. border should be a top priority of the White House and Congress.

A Quinnipiac University Poll (March 3) finds 62 percent oppose making it easier for illegals to become citizens (72 percent in that poll don't even want illegals to be permitted to have driver's licenses).

Time Magazine's recent poll (Jan. 24-26) found 75 percent favor "major penalties" on employers of illegals, 70 percent believe illegals increase the likelihood of terrorism and 57 percent would use military force at the Mexican-American border.
Please don’t anyone tell me illegal immigrants are making my bed, cooking my food, cleaning my house or cutting my grass. I am not now and have never employed anyone, illegal or otherwise to do my household chores. Employers should not be hiring illegal workers, regardless of industry, period. I follow the laws and I expect other people to do the same.

If the government aggressively prosecuted employers breaking the law, the job market for illegals would dry up and the illegal immigrants would begin the process of self-deporting. If states stopped offering any services other than emergency medical care to illegal immigrants, the U.S. would stop being a good deal for those remaining in the country illegally.

As far as I’m concerned if this illegal immigrant rights nonsense doesn’t stop and if our leaders fail to act, then I think it’s time for Americans to take to the streets and make our voices heard.

My relatives by marriage filed applications for immigration to the US and were told the wait was 8 years. They would not dare risk any means of a shorter time span for fear of the penalty of deportation and permanent lock-out for ever being allowed back.

The wait turned out to be 13 years and by that time, one child who applied on the mother's visa was 21 and could not be admitted because he had become and adult. He had to re-apply on his own and start the process all over again while his mother and brother - his only remaining relatives) went without him. Even when faced with conscritpion into the army of a Moslem country (for a Christian, that's not at all good) did he attempt anything that would jeopardize his future in America.

This is the common story of law-abiding citizens. If there is no penalty for illegal immigration, their struggle and sacrifice was for nothing.

'Bob',

More people should hear about your family and others like them. Instead, people are trying to make this into a ‘pity party” for people with the nerve to demonstrate for their ‘rights’ all the while breaking the law. It’s ridiculous. The problem is not immigration, it’s illegal immigration and people need to recognize there is a big difference between the two. Illegal behavior should not be tolerated, let alone rewarded.
