Illegals Are Destroying America - A Letter To Rep Tom Tancredo


The following letter was received by the heroic Congressman, Tom
Tancredo, and posted on his site as part of 'Tom's Mailbag'...
My story.
I live in a world where I do not count. I am White. I am poor. I
don't have coalitions rallying for what I feel is important. I don't have
news reporters writing about "poor me". But, I have views. I vote. I pay
taxes. And, I know there are millions of people in America just like me.
I live next to a shelter built by politicians who are afraid to have
an opinion about closing the border. Daily, 1,500 illegal Mexicans visit
that shelter. It was supposed to keep these "poor" people from urinating and
defecating on the streets. It didn't. If I **** on the street, I would get
fined.
My home and vehicles have been broken into 22 times in 5 years. I
stopped calling the police each time now, because they don't come anyway.
Instead, we bought a gun. Scared off the last illegal trying to steal our
truck. He knew enough English to say, "Sorry", as we pointed it at him. 3
months later, we still have a towel over the smashed driver's side window.
Last week, I was ordered to pay a $85.00 fine for a false alarm. Police
showed up for THAT hearing. The police couldn't find any criminal at my home
when my home alarm sounded. I am curious how long police think bad guys
"hang around" after an alarm has been triggered.
When I was rear ended in my car, the policeman said I would have to
wait while he called for back -up. My baby was screaming. The police had no
film in the camera. The back- up police had no fingerprinting ink, or film.
The illegal had an ID, but the police said there was nothing that could be
done. The illegal would just get another fake ID and would never show for
court. He didn't have insurance. The illegal who hit me said, "Sorry", as he
was walking away. He was free to go. I was free to pay the deductible on my
car, and the chiropractor bills for my children and myself. If I drove
without insurance and hurt someone or their possessions, I would be forced
to pay for the damages.
My husband works 6 days a week as a framing contractor. He pays
FICA, Social Security, State taxes, Federal taxes, General liability
insurance, Workman's comp insurance, and probably others that I don't
remember. His Workman's Comp. just skyrocketed from $5,000 per year, to
$28,000 per year. Now I ask you... WHERE are we to come up with an extra
$23,000? We had NO CLAIMS! Should I take it from my food budget? We often go
weeks without meat! Should it come from our clothing budget? We buy our
clothes at thrift sales and Savers. How about our entertainment account?
Does seeing a movie every month qualify?
My home insurance costs me $100.00 more yearly because I live on a
border state. How long until Kansas becomes a border state?
I have had no medical insurance for years and years. I can't afford
it. At 33, I got cancer. My doctor told me to go to ACCHS. I don't remember
how to spell the state's medical system, since they declined me. My husband
's company had no profit in 6 months, due to theft, and lack of laws at the
time to force general contractor's to pay . Without studying my receipts, I
was declined. Interesting that the hundreds of illegal Mexicans standing in
line, were being given food stamps, and medical care. They did not have
social security numbers, and did not speak English. If you don't believe me,
look at the application DES uses yourself, spend 5 minutes at DES and remind
yourself why you pay taxes. You won't leave smiling.
Taxes. We fell behind 1 year. I contacted IRS and told them we want
to make arrangements to pay. We now show the IRS EVERY thing we buy. From
tampons to chewing gum-they see the receipt. For the next year, we will be
scrutinized. For the next 5 years we will be audited. Maybe I should never
have "done the right thing" and told them. Maybe I should change my name to
Garcia.
My son cries nightly because his legs and arms hurt. He has cried
for almost 7 years. My husband often walks on one leg because his back and
leg pain is almost unbearable. Monthly, I have mini strokes. During those
times, I lose the ability to speak well, and have seizures until I lose
consciousness . We don't really know what is wrong with any of us. We may
never know. WE can't afford a doctor. God forbid we need emergency services.
30% of the time, hospitals are on divert status, because there is no room.
The illegals take their kids to ERs for colds and sore throats. I would only
go if I lost a limb, or my heart gave out.
2 years ago, I announced to my family there would be no turkey for
Thanksgiving. We would eat pasta and be thankful we were a family. My
Catholic friend made arrangements for me to get a food box from her church.
I went, reluctantly. I drove up in my broken old van, and saw a lot full of
new (stickers still attached), suburbans. My van was the worst vehicle
there, and it hit me that I really was poor! I stood in line for 20 minutes
amazed at the number of Mexicans taking box after box of food. When it was
my turn, I had to show ID. I was told to leave. There wasn't enough food for
me to take a box. I looked around- there were boxes of food everywhere! For
a minute I forgot I was White, and in their eyes, not deserving.
At church, our pastor reminds us to stay hopeful. I struggle to make
sense of a system that has taken from me, and given to those who have more
than I do.
Who will be my voice? Where is my coalition? I thought it was the
leaders of America. I was wrong. They have sold out me and millions like me
out. What's worse...I don't know why.

Hi, Jeff. I have just read the above article posted 1-9-4 and would
very much, if possible, like to post a comment to be addended to the
article:
Who will be my voice? Where is my coalition? I thought it was the
leaders of America. I was wrong. They have sold out me and millions like me
out. What's worse...I don't know why
Madam, I have just ready your excellent, yet rather sinister
article. The same kind of thing has been going on here in the UK for a long
time now, except our leaders are just slightly more subtle about it so we
only notice once we have been swamped by people who do not belong in our
country. As for your question I do know the reason why this is happening.
Let me briefly explain. The illegal aliens now being legalised in your great
nation are nothing more than a tool, just as in the UK and the rest of
Europe. They are the unwitting, unknowing, shock troops which will help lead
to the NWO. How? Simply because if you wish to divide, and therefore
conquer, a nation or a planet it is imperative to have the vast majority of
ordinary folk too busy fighting with their neighbours and engaged in race
war to notice who the REAL enemy is and what he is up to. That is right up
until the moment when the carefully laid trap is ready to be sprung., when
the illegals will have served their purpose and are then superfluous to
need.
And when that moment comes, let me make a prediction: You will
suddenly notice that these illegal immigrants are rapidly disppearing until,
within a few short years it will be as though they had never been. And where
will they all have gone to? Ever heard of the so called "disappeared" in so
many Latin American countries? And then who do you think is going to be
next, hmm? It's exactly the same MO employed by the Nazi's. First, they got
rid of the Jews, then the blacks, then the gypsies, then the Catholics, then
the mentally ill, then...well, by that time, if their plans had played out
to fruition there wouldn't have been too many left at all. Just enough to be
"employed" in vast work camps and keep the elite in the style to which they
have become accustomed.
Of course, however, it will be too late by then because it will be
fait accompli and you will all be no more than cattle, labouring away in
similiar vast work camps for the benefit of the shadow government ready in
waiting for the order to take over. Think I've taken the X Files a little
too seriously? Hmm, perhaps. But before you dismiss me as just another nut,
take a look at Patriot Acts I and II and a few of the executive orders which
are freely available, courtesy of the US govt, to view on the net. And then
go check out the companies who are producing, and advertising implantable
bio chips just as fast as their little legs will carry them. That will be a
good start which may lead you onto the other research I have been conducting
for the last decade or so - far too much to go into here. Ninety nine
percent who read this will instantly dismiss me as insane. And that is your
right and perogative. To paraphrase the old saying, I applaud and stand up
for your right to disagree with me. But will your government grant you the
same grace when it comes to disagreeing with them in the years to come?
Somehow, I seriously doubnt it. For the other one percent who have actually
bothered to do as I have suggested and look for yourselves, do you still
feel quite so sure about what the future may hold if we, the people, don't
educate ourselves in double quick time about what is being planned for the
"benefit" of the planet?
Best Regards
Max

Do not be discouraged by some of the posts. Some people are not happy in life.
Your story is terrible and I am afraid that you are not alone. It is by telling your stories of unfortunate dispare that will bring attention to the illegal problem.....
Yes there is a problem too.....
There are some that want to disagree, and that is a scary thought. Because anyone that has lived in Texas, AZ, CA, Idaho, NV, NM, to start with has a serious problem with illegals economically, criminally etc.
How much more can we take.
I believe it was Dateline that exposed a Texas town I believe that was a blink you miss it place that kept adding on to their post office.
Well, come to find out it was because of all the illegals that were getting checks from our government.
They would come over the border get their checks cash them and cross back over into Mexico.
No wonder we are viewed upon by other nations as idiots most of the time.

Nope. it's not---I even used an "emoticon" to show that I was serious. America is the strongest nation on earth. To say that America is being destroyed by poor people walking and hitchhiking here is simply absurd. These people are coming here with the blessings, and the tacit encouragement, of rich, powerful, and influential Americans. They are coming into a society in which the local population likes to think that "they" (the locals) can "do anything, as long as you pay us". But this isn't true. The middle-aged "locals" may want to do heavy, difficult tasks, but their children do not. America's "young" people (many in their 30's) are, to a large extent, overindulged teenagers. Don't look to them for a lot of enthusiasm in the manual labor field--many of them are just not "into" such stuff....
America could stop this situation in a week if it wanted to; it does not. The fact is, illegals are coming to America because America allows it. Americans are in charge of America, as far as I know. If something goes wrong in America, it stands to reason that it must be America's fault---where else should we put the blame? Thus I say that "Americans are destroying America", through their own laziness, political correctness, and selfishness. They are paralyzed by a guilt which causes them to blame themselves, and their "western" culture, for any conceivable problem in the world---it's all America's fault; and our European allies are quick to agree. If the "illegals" left tomorrow morning, America's problems would just continue, except we'd have to find someone else to blame. A country which no longer believes in itself is probably doomed to a never-ending parade of problems with no end in sight, illegals or no illegals.

PS Just take the "Mexican Trucks" situation---Mexican Trucks (of uncertain safety and road-worthiness) are now poised to enter the entire US market, border-to-border. Do you blame the Mexican Truck drivers?---I blame the Americans in charge of the regulatory agencies who decided to allow this. Mexican truck drivers are working men, who are going to go where they are sent. We can hardly expect them to "lose sleep" over the situation, and to "turn down work" in order to protect OUR markets and OUR driving public. I'm sure they'd tell you, "Sorry, but we figure that's YOUR problem. YOU opened up the market, and I'm only doing my job"......

Take it a step further....not Americans destroying America (Most of us don't want this at all) but it's our Representatives in Government that are doing this. They are allowing the very rich a luxury of cheap labor at the expense of the future of this nation.

I am a Taxpaying American, and I demand that our government abide by the Constitution of the United States of America.

And I know, that if we, as a people, do rise up, and our laws tell us to do this, our present government will put us down, just like they jailed the Border Guards who shot at the drug smugglers.

We haven't seen anything yet.

We will fight for liberty, once again, and many of us will die.
