I am sure that if you read yesterday's post, you can guess my feelings on the issue of illegal immigration facing America.
After my post yesterday, I found a post from one of my friends. I only wish I had thought of this first:
A lady wrote the best letter in the Editorials in ages!!! It explains things better than what you hear on TV.
Recently large demonstrations have taken place across the country protesting the fact that Congress is finally addressing the issue of illegal immigration.
Certain people are angry that the US might protect its own borders, might make it harder to sneak into this country and, once here, to stay indefinitely.
Let me see if I correctly understand the thinking behind these protests.
Let's say I break into your house. Let's say that when you discover me in your house, you insist that I leave.
But I say, "I've made all the beds and washed the dishes and did the laundry and swept the floors. I've done all the things you don't like to do. I'm hardworking and honest, (except for when I broke into your house).
According to the protesters:
You are Required to let me stay in your house.
You are Required to add me to your family's insurance plan.
You are Required to Educate my kids.
You are Required to Provide other benefits to me & to my family.
(My husband will do all of your yard work because he is also hardworking and honest, except for that breaking in part.)
If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my friends who
will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my RIGHT to be there.
It's only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than I do, and I'm
just trying to better myself. I'm a hardworking and honest person, except
for well, you know, I did break into your house.
And oh yeah, I get a free education, where you have to pay your own way
through college. (TEEHEE)
And what a deal it is for me!!! I live in your house, contributing only a
fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it
without being accused of cold, uncaring, selfish, prejudiced, and bigoted
Oh yeah, I DEMAND that you to learn MY LANGUAGE!!! So you can communicate
with me. And don't forget make sure your forms are in MY language - I need to understand them.
Why can't people see how ridiculous this is?! Only in America.
If you agree, pass it on ( in English ). Share it if you see the
value of it.
If not blow it off......... Along with your future Social Security funds,
and a lot of other things.
And that is the best and most simple explanation I've ever heard.
Feel free to comment your opinions if you agree or even if you don't.
