Illegal Immigration Must Stop
The protests of illegal immigrants over the weekend underscored what a huge problem the country is facing. While America has always been a melting pot, immigration must be legal and controlled. We can no longer afford to shoulder the enormous cost of feeding, educating and providing medical care for the millions of illegal aliens now residing in our country. The government seems to make no effort to send them back to where they came from, police officers cannot enforce immigration laws which makes them toothless tigers and the federal agency charged with enforcement is so overwhelmed they cannot keep up. This bill in front of Congress that makes it a felony to assist/hire illegal aliens is a definite step in the right direction and we need to enforce the current laws along with securing our borders. Hospitals that provide care for the uninsured illegals make up the money by overbilling those of us that are fortunate enough to have health insurance and this drives the cost of health insurance through the ceiling!!
I don't understand what is wrong with the law enforcement in this country. For the last week there have be THOUSANDS of illegal immigrants demonstrating in the street IN PLAIN VIEW, so why didn't ICE (formerly INS) or whatever they are called now GRAB THEM UP?? Jesus Christ!! Here they are by the thousands and the enforcement people are too frigging LAZY to go grab them? Yet they all stand around and bitch about the problem--it's like when you are driving through a construction zone and 1 guy is working a 7 more are WATCHING him work--and then everyone bitches about why the roads take forever to build!! Am I the only one who is noticing this?? Are we now a nation of MORONS?? Citizens and legal immigrants are being taxed into the stratosphere to pay for all the services that the illegals use up--schools, ER visits, food stamps, section 8 housing, etc., etc., and NO ONE does anything about it. After TEN YEARS, local cops are finally getting certified (what the hell is that by the way? CERTIFIED? Green card? No? You are under arrest! What kind of certification do you need for that?) to ARREST the illegals but if they make BAIL before the freaking INS shows up THEY LET THEM GO!!! WTF? Here's how it works--grab them up, legal ones stay, illegal ones are on the next plane out. Real simple! We can no longer afford to be the world's police force either--we need to take care of our own people for a change!
I have nothing against immigrants as long as they are here legally, it takes a lot of courage to leave everything behind to try for a better life. America needs to stop automatically granting citizenship to anyone born in the country to illegal aliens. These "anchor babies" are paid for every step of the way by the taxpayers. First, we pay for the hospital to deliver them, then food stamps, WIC, Medicaid, education and last but not least, incarceration. Americans are the most generous and charitable people in the world, but we can no longer continue to support the world!!
