Illegals Illegally Demonstrate Against Being Illegal

Topics: Immigration and Border Issues

If you are an illegal alien in the first instance, let's cut to the quick and skip political correctness - you are breaking the law by merely breathing on America's soil, and whatever you do after that, is just that much more illegal.

From the article we learn that:

The students were protesting HR 4437, which would "amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to strengthen enforcement of the immigration laws, to enhance border security and for other purposes," according to its sponsors.

Opponents of the measure have called it racist and said it would penalize legal immigrants for associating with "illegals." (excuse me - if you associate with people that are breaking the law - you are associating with or participating in a questionable act or a crime; by definition you are complicit in the breaking of the law and deserve to be prosecuted)

The bill would require employers to verify Social Security numbers with the Department of Homeland Security, increase penalities for immigrant smuggling and stiffen penalities for undocumented immigrants who reenter the United States after having been removed. (shouldn't this have already been done? Isn't it illegal to be illegal, to commit an illegal act, or to participate in a crime?)

What am I missing here?

Think about it! First of all, having to pass a law to enforce a law addressing the illegality of breaking a law by illegally entering America, to enforce the fact that illegal immigrants are illegal, makes no damned sense!!!

Why haven't we simply enforced the law against people illegally entering our country - in the first instance, by immediately throwing people out of the country who are "I L L E G A LLY" here?

Repeat offenders should be given prison time and prohibition from ever ever ever receiving citizenship or a permit of any kind whatsoever.

And will someone please explain to me what right people that are illegally here have to demonstrate without being locked up, when they are breaking the law in the first place? Has our society just absolutely lost it? Haven't we become just a little bit too tolerant? As in over the top?

If you or I break the law - we go to jail. How is it that an illegal immigrant can escape prosecution and deportation and/or prison, then demonstrate against a law on top of a law on top of another law prohibiting him/her from being here in the first place, much less demonstrating against a law against his/her being here to break the law?

Am I confused? You bet I am!

I have a message to politicians of both major parties: If you do not support hard core enforcement of our immigration laws, and also strengthen our borders making it impossible to cross them illegally - you damned well won't get my vote.

And you can forget about trying to appease illegal immigrants and satisfy LEGAL voters at the same time. The majority of LEGAL Americans aren't buying what you have to sell!

And yes, I did get up early on a Saturday morning to get this off my chest. And believe me, when it comes to the issue of illegal immigration, not only does it make MY blood boil, but also that of the majority of LEGAL Americans THAT ARE VOTERS.

And while we're on the topic of illegal immigration, excuse me Hillary Clinton, but illegal immigration is NOT what made this country great!

... illegal immigration is not what made this country great. What made this country great is that people from all over the world who saw America as their last hope for a good life immigrated here legally and built this country from the ground up. America doesn't stand for the intentional breaking of the law; it stands for the rule of law. No one is against immigration, as long as the immigrants follow the law and do it legally.
