Being politically correct isnt one of my strong points. So if I offend, sorry ahead of time.
Wednesday’s post seems a bit one-sided on my part.
To me, it appears I am singling out Mexicans. I suppose maybe I am because the majority of illegals in our country are from Mexico. They are the ones we hear about mostly. However, not all illegals are from Mexico. They come from any country- Haiti, Cuba, South America, Iran, and so on.
Here are the 2006 illegal immigrants country of origin percentages:
Rest of the world-4%
Here are some numbers that show the costs of illegals to the US.
The largest costs are:
Medicaid ($2.5 billion)
Treatment for the uninsured ($2.2 billion)
Food assistance programs such as food stamps, WIC, and free school lunches ($1.9 billion)
The federal prison and court systems ($1.6 billion)
Federal aid to schools ($1.4 billion)
These numbers really piss me off.
Ive disclosed enough here about myself and the way I live. My family pays our bills, our taxes, maybe put a small amount of money in savings, and with what LITTLE money is left, we eat and live day to day on. I drive a decent car and I have a nice home, but we certainly aren’t living high on the hog. We pay full price for school lunches for son #1. My boys go without more often than with.
Due to my family’s income, my 3 yo has to be put on a waiting list for preschool/headstart until all the low income/needy children get a place first. Now, I have no problem with giving needy kids a break. But it becomes a problem when illegals are taking resources away from my children. The money spent on illegals should be spent on taking care of US citizens and not someone who is illegally in our country. Then, maybe my son wouldn’t be discriminated against for belonging to a responsible tax paying family in the US.
I also have a bitch in this same area with deadbeat people (US citizens) drawing welfare and govt’ aide who are very capable of working but refuse to do so. That rant is a whole other post.
Crime, we have enough crime in the US. We do not need more, and that is exactly what some illegals do, they commit crimes. These crimes could be prevented if illegals were not allowed in the US, if the US dealt with illegals in a strict and harsh manner instead of just allowing them to roam freely and illegally in our country.
Honestly, why are we coddling illegals? They are here illegally, send them back. When did this whole thing get turned around and now the illegals are the victims? I don’t get it, they are the ones breaking the laws, treat them as such.
Here is just a very small few examples of the horrible Crimes committed by illegals:
Officer Will Seuis a motorcycle patrolman in Oakland, California, was killed on his ride home by an illegal alien. Fortunately some witnesses on the highway immediately phoned 911 and the accused hit-and-run driver, Carlos Mares, was quickly caught. Mares was driving his truck with a commercial load. Seuis left a wife, Michelle, and two daughters. The accused killer has a history of traffic convictions. It’s curious that illegal alien Mares has his own business, Mares Trucking.
Vinessa Hoera was a young single mom, only 23, when she was brutally raped and murdered by an illegal alien from Guatemala, Faustino Chavez, who apparently was angry when his advances toward her were not received positively. The bruises on her body showed that she tried to fight off her attacker but was not successful.
The young woman’s family was shocked to hear the detailsof how savage her murder had been, like how her throat had been slashed several times from ear to ear. Vinessa had a five-year-old son.
Thirteen-year-old Laura Ayala went missing in March 2002, taken just a few feet from in her home in Houston. At this writing, there is no child and no body, although blood identified as being hers was identified in 2002 in the car of men believed to be connected with her abduction. Because of some evidence that she had been taken to Mexico, part of the search has been there. One complication was Houston’s policy of “sanctuary” which disallows police from investigating a person’s citizenship status. Illegal alien Walter Alexander Sorto was in police hands for traffic tickets but could not be deported because of the sanctuary policy: he is believed to be connected in Laura Ayala’s disappearance which occurred several months after the ticket problem. Houston police office John Nickell testified before Congress (2/27/02) about how sanctuary laws inhibit the effectiveness of beat cops to deal with criminals and prevent crime.
The above cases were taken from Crime victims of illegal aliens site.
I am not against legal immigration. My mother’s family are immigrants. Without immigration the USA wouldn’t be the melting pot it stands for. People who want a better life and are willing to work for it, be a constructive member of society, and support what our country stands for are the kind of people I want in my country. The legal immigrants I know personally are exactly that, they have come to the USA to better their lives and to be an American citizen and they speak English.
The great American dream is special. It needs to be treated as so. The US needs to take action now to protect it.
