Immigration Woes...

There is a lot of hoopla going on right now about illegal "aliens" being in the US and either kicking them out, or letting them become citizens.

I'm all for people from other Nations coming to the US, as long as it is a legal move, they have a job, or can get a job, so they can pay taxes like the rest of us, cover their own medical cost, etc.

I am NOT for people from other Nations sneaking into the US and taking jobs "under the table" and not paying taxes like the majority of the US, getting free medical (on "me" (and I say that tongue in cheek)), etc. NO other Nation out there lets people just come into their Nation and live "for free".

Now, make immigration cheaper and easier to do for people that want to leave their Nation of record and become a Citizen of this Great Nation, but make them go through the process of doing it legally.

Those folks that are hear illegally (as in not haven gone through the proper processes to enter the US) and that are protesting and marching against the US, waving their "home Nation" flags, should be arrested and sent back to their "flag" Nation. (If they really want to prove a point, they should be waving US flags!!) They are breaking two US Laws:

1. Illegally in the US.
2. In many cases demonstrating without a permit. (Now, mind you, I don't think that a permit should be needed to demonstrate peacefully, but currently it is the law, so follow it.)

It just doesn't make sense to me how people are getting away with this protesting, while being illegal, and why we aren't doing something about it...

I agree with you. I don't understand why people are so against them coming in legally. I have spoked to people from Canada and Irland who said they weret allowed to become citizins being the process is so badley burden by illegals aliens. These people were doing things right and paying taxes!

Her's a story that makes me mad. I was in the hospital just had my 3rd baby. they brought in my new roomate, she was in obvious pain and spoke no English. She had what must have been her entire family with her. the horpital was scramlbing to fidn anyone who spoke Spanish to find out what was wrong. Tured out she shatered her pelvis having this baby and for HOURS no one knew what was wrong with her becasue she couldn't speak English.

They had me on their teanager level becasue the main level for adult woman having a baby was full. I was so mad and left the hospital a day early.

I can't believe you let someone tell you to fix your spelling and you replied so nicely....I'll be the first to admit that spelling errors drive me batty, but damn, the least she could have done was contact you privately instead of right out in plain view of all who read your blog.
p.s. great article, totally agree with most of it, ; )

Hello Anonymous,

No reason for me to get uptight whith her. Would have done no good. Now if she had left her link so I could go check out her site, I may have technically torn up her web design or some other such thing if there was the chance...
