They're Taking Our Jorbs! They're Taking Our Jorbs!

Maybe it's because I didn't grow up in a border state. We had plenty of immigrants from Puerto Rico around Florida. But I never thought of illegal immigration as a huge problem. Yes, I agree that our borders need to be secure... especially considering our national security interests. But something about this whole debate troubles me.

For one, I get uncomfortable when the pro-immigration lobby tries to lump this in with the civil rights movement of the 1960's. I mean c'mon... none of the illegal immigrant's basic human rights are being infringed upon. No, they can't vote (no citizen, no vote, nuff said)... but if I remember correctly, we're not exactly forcing them to sit in the back of the bus or drink from separate water fountains either.

But let's have a look at the insanity of the other side. I'm not sure I can explain it as well as our old friend, Chris Rock. So here are his words, paraphrased:
When y'all were saying fuck the terrorists... I was with you. I was like, Yeah! Fuck those terrorists!

But then we focused on the French and I was with you too... Fuck the french! I hate those damn Frenchies!

But when I started hearing Fuck the Illegal Immigrants, I said, hold up.... wait a minute here...

Because we all know the Jews and Niggers are next.
Well, I guess he spoke too soon...

Slick. He didn't come right out and say white people are doomed, but the message was clear. What an asshole.

The issue is an affront to the very idea of international immigration policy: that any country should be able to decide its own immigration policy---that it shouldn't be decided by those desiring to come here. In 2005, the US allowed over 1,122,000 legal permanent residents into the US. The US takes in 37% of the world's immigrants, so people who cross international borders illegally are doing it for their own selfish purposes. And the effects are real. In order to work illegally, you have to steal someone's identity, ie, a social security card. Often one number is shared with an entire family or community of illegals. Now, when they default on a loan or something, who pays the price? An American citizen.

I agree about the "lumping" into a civil rights movement.
Let's check the facts here: illegal immigrants and legal immigrants = different. If someone doesn't want people to come here sans papers...doesn't mean they're xenophobic.

No one really cared about this issue until the labor lobby started siding with the illegals, because they saw it as profitable move. Now we have rallys that wave Mexican flags and Che flags.

So sad how all of our political decisions are based on lobbyists', rather than the people's voice.
