I completely agree with you. It is phenominal to me that the government is allowing this to happen. Even the average person can see that the tide of
illegal immigration has already had devastating effects on the U.S.
I'm not one to post sources or reference studies or articles but I am a keen observer of my own community. One doesn't have to look far to see the
overwhelmingly negative effects of our current immigration policies (or lack there of) and our failure to secure our borders.
> Our education system is crippled by the sheer volume of illegal students who don't speak our language but are still mainstreamed into classrooms -
resulting in the dumbing down of our entire system (one elementary school in my area has 63 different "first" languages spoken by their students)
>Overall wages are being suppressed by illegal workers who are willing to work for less than a decent or fair wage. (And please don't anyone reply
with the weak "Americans won't do the work" argument - save it for another thread)
> The health care system is burdened with patients who can't afford preventive or first tier medical care and then overflow our emegency rooms but
> Rates of communicable diseases are up everywhere (TB, whooping cough) because illegals can't be tracked for the most basic of vaccinations. (Please
don't anyone sound off about vaccinations - save it for another thread)
> Illegal immigrants divert 100's of miilions of dollars out of our economy every year and send it back to Mexico (remittances). There is even a
pizza chain out in the southwest somewhere that accepts pesos as tender and suppossedly this is legal.
> Virtually every city or small town in the U.S. has an area in which all of the businesses serve mainly the Latino community and the signs are
strictly in Spanish - illegals are literally changing the landscape of the U.S.
> Many illegal immigrants disregard housing codes and are ruining neighborhoods by allowing more than the legal number of occupants to reside in
houses designated as single-family dwelllings.
> Our already faltering justice system and jails are filling up with illegals who have committed violent crimes and many of those are repeat offenders
(Newark NJ). None are easily tracked once they post bail - they just leave the country until the heat is off and then come back to another area.
In general, many illegal Mexican immigrants have no desire to assimilate or adapt to American culture, unlike most immigrants from other countries or
previous generations of immigrants.
What is the motivation to allow this to continue? Corporate Profits? NAU? The establishment of a service class to serve elites?
I'll brace myself for the hate coming my way but try to stay on topic. And please, don't misconstrue my disillusionment with discrimination. I'm
not against diversity I like Mexican food as well as the next person. Just kidding! LOL
...Seriously...I'm just for
the U.S. and it's laws.
