'En su condición de Presidente,' Bush Surrenders to Illegals: Forget Amnesty, It's Time to Raise the Mexican Flag'Topics: Immigration and Border Issues
Nothing is absolute. Past generations of LEGAL immigrants may have been a net benefit to government budgets--but not this wave of ILLEGAL, low-skilled immigrants.David Phillips writes at his blog, 10Q Detective, to call him a bigot - but do not call him stupid: "When--and it is a matter of when--the 15 million criminals in this country get their amnesty, where are their (expected) entitlement monies going to come from to pay for their social security benefits, Medicare, housing, schooling, etc, (for they never paid taxes)?"
... Read my lips: Amnesty = Citizenship. Can U.S. taxpayers absorb the costs of an influx of millions of unskilled, non-English-speaking, migrants in the next few years?
More than 150 years-ago, President Polk (a Democrat!) planted the idea of "Manifest Destiny," which took root among the American people. The consequences of this belief that the U.S. had a God-given right to occupy and "civilize" the whole continent lead to the Mexican-American War (1846-1848), known in Mexico as la invasión estadounidense (the United States Invasion).Indeed, Santa Ana is rising up from the grave.
Sadly, I believe that historians will be re-writing the last chapter of the Mexican Cession, the historical name of the present day southwestern United States ceded by Mexico in 1848.
What lands Mexico lost in war, they are winning back through their policy of a tacit invasion of the United States. With each passing day--as the number of illegal Mexicans in our country grows (compounded by births on U.S. soil), Mexico takes back a little bit more of their lost land(s) and culture.
Santa Ana, levantado de entre los muertos!

I am Mexican.
Part of my family lives in USA, part of my family is in Mexico. Some of my uncles fought in the Second World War. A cousin of mine went to VietNam. One of my nephews has been to Irak (twice). Other nephew is presently in Afghanistan. Both of my nephews joined the Marines.
Let me point out that our countries in north and South America belong to the only continent in the world, besides Europe, with common origins in religion and cultural heritage. No other continent in the world has such homogeneity. Our countries are not in war against neighboring countries. There are no conflicts because of religious differences. But, one thing is sure, we are not your enemies, we are not terrorists. As a matter of fact, down the road, we are your only potential allies against international terrorism.
Did you know that President carter gave pardon for those that did not join the war in Vietnam? Many went to Canada, and others flew to Mexico.
You sure know that President Ford Gave full pardon to Nixon because of the Watergate scandal.
And according to what it is known, Mr. Nixon violated blatantly the law in many issues and in a great scale. This does not mean that therefore, others must violate the law. But what I am saying is that in your own history there are some examples of amnesty or whatever you want to call it.
Why are you claiming the rule of law against people that came here to work? Work that many of you don't want to perform.
Why do you hate us so much, why do you want to harm us? We are not terrorists. Do you believe in God? Do you have a religion?
I do not understand why you cannot see who our common enemy is, nor why you would have us waste time and effort chasing down immigrant workers.
What does it prove to your valuable and strained military resources to round up all the indocumentados if radical Muslims manage to pull off another 9-11 or worse? Let's concentrate in chasing our real enemies. Not us.
Please do not forget what happened with Hitler and Jews in Europe.
Your arguments sound familiar. Similar to the attacks made to Jews that escalated until deport them to concentration camps and exterminate a great deal of innocent people. All based in hate. Hate against other race. Hate against other people.
Not so long ago, the biggest dictator on earth came to power driven by hate,
Everything started little by little in Germany. Jews started to be blamed for everything. Just take a look to some of the movies made by Hitler about Jews. In these films, they are depicted as criminals, thieves, a disgrace to Germany, they are filthy, they bring diseases, they are greedy, they should be removed, they should be deported, etc.
America had to go and rescue Europe from Hitler and his fanatics. Maybe some of your relatives fought abroad. Maybe some or many died in this fight against hate.
The hate against Jews made Hitler to climb to his actual position. As a result of his ascent and silence and approval of the German population, the killings and destruction were countless. This is also what the Ku Klux Klan tried to do against African Americans in USA, luckily without success. The white supremacists, Nazis, and the KKK are closely related.
Perhaps unknowingly you are helping them.
Don't make the mistake that Germans made with Hitler.
God bless America as a country and as a continent!!!

The issue has nothing to do with hate and everything to do with the rule of law, continuing the cultural identity of the U.S., and not bankrupting the social services of the U.S. because of people that are in the country illegally.
Attempting to make this a racial issue is - well, being a racist. And it's not on the part of those seeking to see the laws of the United States of America, enforced. Period.
