monica forgot to add a little word.. ILLEGAL!
No one on here posts anything against LEGAL immigrants..
when will this get into the bleeding hearts left-side of their brains..

LEGAL = = = = = = = WELCOME

ILLEGAL MEANS YOU ARE BREAKING THE LAW.. AND YOU MOST LIKELY WILL CONTINUE BREAKING OUR LAWS.. It means they/you/him/her/it ..has NO rights, NO say in our country and do NOT belong here.. they commited a criminal act just by sneaking across... ILLEGALLY.

Now some of you.. seem to think we should keep allowing your relatives to sneak over in the dead of night .. just because you did, and did not get caught, and were lucky enough after 5 or 10 years to get legal.. well, we have had enough and we are NOT going to take it any longer... No more illegal relatives... no more anchor babies... no more amnesty.. no more illegals period!

Give the Minutemen the authority to clean up this mess, and they will!
private companies and groups have been used for years in many things.. Our government is paying private groups right now over in irac... The minutemen will clean this mess up FOR FREE!

I've posted regarding this issue before.

Apparently, it bears repeating.

How many huddled masses do you think this country can hold? How many tired, poor, and homeless wretched refuse are the American citizens in this country expected to support with their tax dollars at the expense of themselves and their fellow citizens who need their assistance just as much if not more than someone from another country?

Did you know that in America, more American children live below the poverty level than in any other industrialized country in the world?

If your motives are a truly altruistic as you would have the rest of us believe, that compassion is what motivates you, then I want you to explain to me what entitles Mexico's people to our compassion over the rest of the world's poor? Its proximity to our southern border?

I have a real problem with those who state that this is all about human compassion, loving thy neighbor, blah diddy blah diddy blah. Today in Africa, approximately 2,500 children died. Tomorrow another 2,500 will die. The day after that another 2,500 children will die. Every day of every week of every year. They will die from starvation and from a lack of clean water, and from the diseases which are brought on by both. Why are they not deserving of a place in American society?

There is no doubt that many of Mexico's people are poor. But there is poor and then there is abject, without hope, destined to die a slow and agonizing death, poverty. If human compassion is indeed the motivation behind illegal immigration (which we all know that it is not--it is the enslavement of an entire geo-political class of people for corporate benefit) then surely there must be a yardstick by which we measure need.

Why should the United States continue to receive unchecked, all of Mexico's poor and uneducated? If poor and uneducated people are what you are looking to import into the United States in the name of human compassion, then I suggest that we begin importing our illegal aliens from the following fifty poorest countries in the world. Please note that Mexico doesn't even make the top 50:

Afghanistan, Angola, Bangladesh, Benin, Bhutan, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cambodia, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Haiti, Kiribati, Laos, Lesotho, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Maldives, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nepal, Niger, Rwanda, Samoa, São Tomé and Príncipe, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Somalia, Sudan, East Timor, Togo, Tuvalu, Uganda, Tanzania, Vanuatu, Yemen, Zambia.

If human compassion is your motivation, then people from these fifty countries should be priority. I guarantee that they will be much more grateful for the opportunity to "improve" their lives than our current crop of illegals aliens, and I'm sure that they will be just as easy to exploit for slave wages as Mexico's people are, so no loss to big business either.

It's also likely that they will not be marching by the illegal millions in American streets demanding rights reserved for the legal citizens of the United States of America. Nor will they be preaching "reconquista" in the public schools and governmental agencies.

We won't hear any response from Monica Ewing.
It's her first and probably last post.
She's a troll
She just wants to start a ruckus.
If she's not, she should have the guts to prove it.

We're all in search of a better life. If I break the law to get it, I go to jail. They should at least go home.

It does read as stated, however most can read it from the ships as they enter Elis Island to be processed legally. A nation without laws is not a nation. Besides, it was a gift from the French...ba...tards knew what they were doing to us.

For a lesson in growing a pair and dealing with illegal immigration, we should look to French President Nicolas Sarkozy. I love the fact that his policies toward illegal immigration are "France for the French." There are times when a bit of xenophobia is necessary and I think that the French have woken to the dangers of illegal immigration in just enough time to save their beautiful country from becoming a part of Islam.

You HAVE posted it before---(and so have I). It's an EXTREMELY difficult concept to 'grasp', and many of your readers just won't "get it".

Please don't be discouraged. I read your post, and I DO 'get it'....no doubt we'll BOTH be posting it regularly in the future, though, because of its extremely controversial ideas....

I agree. I have been impressed with Sarkozy.

My only 'quibble' with your post is your conceding even a 'bit' of xenophobia. "France for the French" is xenophobic? That's new to me. I thought France WAS French. Who SHOULD France be "for"?....
I'm not criticizing you---I know it's a "shocking" thought nowadays....but really, off the record, is that REALLY xenophobic? (I mean not how it 'feels', but using its true definition)...

I really need to learn to use that /sarcasm/ thing don't I?

I meant xenophobia in the best sense of the word....
