This blog is a distraction!
Once people start discussing different aspects of Illegal immigration, we tall will then start to lose sight of the real problems that occur with illegal immigration.

I can listen to other people's feelings and opinions; but eventually, we have to stop distracting ourselves and focus on the straight and narrow issue.Once again, I state my stances.

But, the majority of the understanding, unbiased, United States citizens whom want dearly to have this problem lessen(or even stop),just want to see the continued survival of this country.

(These bloggers, obviously DO NOT COUNT)!

After reading my previous paragraph, you MAY ask yourself, what does this person mean by saying "United States Citizens want to see the continued survival of our country?"

I meant that Myself(and other American Citizens)just want to see the continued Symbolism of the American Dream, for the estimated 1 Million LEGAL Immigrants that annually immigrate our country to have OPPORTUNITIES.I have never doubted that the majority of ILLEGAL Hispanic Immigrants are not hard working. That, for the most part is TRUE.

But, for one to state that ILLEGAL Latino Immigrants are the ONLY HARDEST WORKING groups of peoples living in the U.S.A.,is misinformed and UPSURD. There is so much more to living the American Dream than working hard. The American Dream is about how a person can have UNLIMITED OPPORTUNITIES to do whatever he or she wants to accomplish; that otherwise would not be possible in their previous country. In addition,a person must be able to ASSIMILATE into the U.S.A. You also might ask " How does a person ASSIMILATE into the U.S.A?" In order to assimilate, a person must add to our country, jump into the MELTING POT, experience different views, personalities,backgrounds; and finally contribute, and Develop a HEALTHY Patriotic respect and love for the United States of America.

If one is to become a Legal American Citizen they must swear an oath to no other country,; except our own U.S.A.

After reading my last paragraph,you MAY ask yourself," what does this person mean that a Immigrant has to swear an oath to our country, the U.S.A.?"

By all means, any Legal immigrant to our country can bring their background experiences, and heritage to the U.S.A.

That is why this land is called "the melting pot of the world"!

But, if one is to become a legal immigrant, than he or she must become an AMERICAN at HEART!

The following is one of the best explainations of what happened to the state of California, and a good heads up read for anyone outside of California as a list of what not-to-do, and who to beware of to save your state from a similar fate:

Published
Letter from a retired SDPD Sergeant
Date: 2007-03-16

I respectfully submit the following commentary on illegal immigration for your benefit and consideration.

I was not only born and raised in California, but was a San Diego police officer from the late 60’s through the early 90’s. More specifically, I was a police supervisor from 1976 on, and was head of the police department’s anti-gang unit during the latter 70’s.
There is a saying,“As California goes, so goes the rest of the country.”
In the matter of illegal immigration, your leaders would better serve its citizens by not following California’s lead.

In the mid-70’s the City of San Diego ordered all its police officers, me included, to stop detaining - or even questioning – the illegal aliens we frequently encountered in the course of our duties. Ignore the issue of illegal immigration altogether, the directive said.
The reason for this new order?
The city had come under ferocious attack for its long-standing, reasoned policy towards illegal aliens. Along with the threat of lawsuits, such words as “racism”,“xenophobia”,“bigotry ” and “discrimination” were being bandied about by shadowy, strangely-aligned illegal alien advocacy groups from both sides of the border.

The common denominator linking these leftists was their alliance with the ACLU. And they all kept to the same script, as they do even today; they would never acknowledge that the only issue on the table was illegal Mexican immigration. None of the city’s leaders at that time - or since then, for that matter - had the stomach for the vitriolic, in-your-face gutter fight these belligerents were looking for.
Against all common sense, the city put its head in the sand and capitulated to the inflammatory rhetoric of a few, loud militants....to the detriment of its own citizens’ best interests.

By the late 70’s, the unabated flow of illegal aliens into San Diego resulted in the melt down of its criminal justice system. The jails were filled beyond capacity, and - because of an ACLU lawsuit - under a court order to start releasing criminals illegal aliens into the streets.
Prosecutors and the courts were overwhelmed, unable to keep up with the load. Mexican street gangs comprised of illegal aliens were on the rise in all parts of the city. The police department responded to this crisis, in part, by instituting a policy wherein only violent offenders and felony suspects actually went to jail. Those arrested for misdemeanor crimes, including illegal aliens with no local address or identification, were issued “citations” on the spot and told to appear in court at a later time. That policy, of course, only served to exacerbate the already sky-rocketing crime rate.
And though there was indisputable proof that the root cause of the crisis was illegal immigration, none of the city’s leaders had the personal courage to actually do anything about it for fear of being tagged “racist” or “bigot”.
It was around that time San Diegans were beginning to hear those slurs from a new quarter – the Mexican Consulate’s office.

Letter - part 2...

In the early 80’s, San Diego taxpayers learned that Mexican children were entering the
At the end of the school day, these children would walk across the border and return to their homes in Mexico.
Outrage over the fact California taxpayers were paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for the public education of foreigners was lost to those now familiar screams of “racism”,“bigotry” and...because they were children...“mean-spiritedness” .
The local school boards said it wasn’t their problem to address, that laws prevented them from asking such intrusive questions as,“Who are you and where do you live?” when enrolling students.
And, they added, what harm was there really in educating those poor Mexican kids.
They also said they needed a lot more tax money to hire new Spanish-speaking teachers because, inexplicably, more and more of their students didn’t speak a word of English.

By the late 80’s, the illegal immigration crisis brought San Diego’s tax-paid social services programs to their knees.
Local tax money earmarked for indigent emergency health care – money set aside as the last safety net for those resident citizens who needed it most – was being spent almost exclusively on the flood of illegal aliens now in the city.
Compounding the problem was the U.S. Border Patrol’s new policy of “unarresting” in-custody illegals when they needed medical care, and dropping them off at the entrances to local hospital emergency rooms.
This new practice, of course, was the federal government’s ingenious way of avoiding its legal responsibility for medical bills incurred by in-custody illegal aliens.
As the tax money dried up, hospitals received less and less government reimbursement for the medical care given to illegals – who had no money, no health insurance, and no means whatsoever of ever paying their medical bills.
Politically savvy hospital administrators weren’t about to take the steps necessary to remedy the situation, and risk incurring the public wrath of the illegals’ advocacy groups.
They chose instead to artificially inflate medical care costs across the board for everyone. That prompted the health insurance companies to raise premium rates for their policy holders, and it was once again demonstrated to San Diegans the many ways in which they were going to pay for the presence of illegal aliens in their city.

Part 3 Letter from SDPD Sergeant.....

By the early 90’s, San Diego’s long-running illegal alien crisis had become California’s nightmare.

Public policy regarding illegal immigration degenerated into theater of the absurd throughout much of the state.
Because of fraudulent voter registration schemes concocted by those leftists, illegal aliens were now voting in both local and federal elections – and in one case, actually making the difference in a congressional district race.(Loretta Sanchez)

Many communities witnessed the collapse of entire medical care systems under the weight of illegal immigration alone.
Billions of public dollars were being spent annually just for the medical care and education of illegals. It was driving the state ever closer to bankruptcy, and severely strained the bounds of civil discourse on the issue.
It was time to draw a line in the sand, and millions of California citizens did just that in 1994. Through the state’s initiative process, a grass-roots proposition was put on the statewide ballot which would finally and absolutely put an end to “business as usual.”
It sought to end all government subsidies to illegals in the state, including public welfare, public housing, public education, and all medical care except in the cases of true emergencies.
In spite of the leftists’ rabid campaign of slurs and name calling, common sense ruled the day and Proposition 187 overwhelmingly passed on a two-to-one vote.

The victory was short-lived.
The ink had barely dried on the governor’s signature when the leftists found a single sympathetic federal judge to claim the new law unconstitutional.

Since then, California’s illegal immigration nightmare has blossomed to become this nation’s cancer, and it’s destroying the very fabric of our society.
No matter how you slice it, there is nothing benign about immigration fraud, identification fraud, welfare fraud, voting fraud, social security fraud, and tax evasion. It all boils down to deceit and theft.
Illegal aliens in our country today are committing these crimes on such a massive scale it boggles the mind, and no community in this nation will survive the scourge.

There is nothing an illegal alien can bring to a community by way of beneficial productivity which will compensate for his/her drain on that community’s social services, criminal justice, educational, and medical care systems. It’s never happened and it isn’t going to happen.
Local tax dollars are a community’s life-blood and are not infinite. History has shown that illegal immigration bleeds that critical supply dry.
In spite of these facts, and against all logic, politicians across the country are seriously debating whether to give illegal aliens the “right” to vote, the “right” to higher education, the “right” to state-issued drivers’ licenses, and even the “right” to accumulate social security credits while using stolen or counterfeit identification.

The leftists’ mantra,“immigration (illegal immigration, if you please!) is the sole responsibility of the federal government”, is a lie.
The federal government has proven over the past 30 years it isn’t capable of, or even willing to, control illegal immigration. The ugly fact of the matter is - the feds alone will not, and cannot, do it.
This is precisely why the battle against illegal immigration is an absolute and moral responsibility of every elected official in this country, including county commissioners and local township supervisors.

Page 4 - letter from SDPD Sergeant (retired)
In closing:

I’ve been a student of illegal immigration since the late 60’s, when I was a rookie cop assigned to the police department’s border sector adjoining Tijuana, Mexico.
During those early years, and over the span of my police career, I witnessed events and had first-hand, personal experiences with illegal immigration few others have had. And I’ve seen the devastating consequences illegal immigration can have on a city, a region, an entire state.

These are the lessons I learned and my advice to anyone concerned about the presence of illegal aliens in their community:

(1) Be suspicious of public officials - with control over tax dollars - who claim illegal immigration isn’t a crisis....or worse yet say,“it isn’t MY crisis.”
Hold on to your wallet if you see that happening!

(2) Be skeptical of any media that reveals a transparent leftist agenda in support of illegals.
You’ll recognize this when the editorials and reporting are slanted, and one-sided, and when illegal aliens are continually referred to as “undocumented workers” and characterized as victims rather than suspects.

(3) And be very, very wary of those self-appointed, self-proclaimed “community activists” who profess to be the guardians of ethnic sensitivities – but whose real motives for involvement are murky and self-serving.
These will be the ones who seem to be afforded a little too much legitimacy and garner a little too much attention by the media.
These will be the only ones spewing personal insults and slurs, and threatening lawsuits at township meetings.

Finally, if nothing you’ve read here has hit a familiar chord or raised a flaming red flag, consider this scenario - which isn’t all that implausible, believe me....
There is only one tax dollar left in the government treasury which is to be used for the public good. You are an honest, law-abiding American citizen and desperately need that last dollar just to survive the day. So does the illegal alien who recently snuck into your country, and is now standing in line next to you. Your only witness to this event is your personal sense of decency and fair play. His witnesses include an ACLU attorney, several “community activists” holding inflammatory placards, and a few media types with cameras rolling. And the government bureaucrat, about to decide who gets that last dollar bill, tells you the law forbids him from acknowledging the obvious in making a decision."

Id like to know why more people, especialy the pols arent calling these people out on the carpet, and asking them specificly, why dont you want to enforce the law against illegals?

Why do you want them to be able to stay?

Make them defend their position in public.

Their are no reasonable answers for allowing illegals to stay. Non. Only reasons of specific agendas, and racist reasons by the latinos.

If you corner them and keep asking for specific reason to let them stay, it becomes clear there are no good reasons.

"They do jobs Americans wont do"....everyone know with very few exceptions its not true. And you use visa for that NOT CITIZENSHIP.

"They have been here for xx years... so what?

"You are a racist"....Prove it. There are many, many non racial reasons to get rid of them. UNLESS THE OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT GUIDLINES STATE THAT ONLY SPECIFIC RACES MUST LEAVE OR CAN STAY....STFU!!!
