IF an American citizen was to break the law what would happen?
THAT American citizen would be sent straight to jail! Do NOT pass go; do NOT collect 200 dollars for breaking the LAW!
Now I have a personal situation that happened I would like to let you in on. I was taken to the emergency room a couple month's ago. Because my third
round on the piggy flu had given me such a bad bacterial bronchitis that I couldn't breathe.(asthma needed steroids and breathing machine med's)
While in the ER and begging to leave because of all the sick people the Hispanic lady next to me was told by the hospital staff to "apply for the
benefit's" and they would not "charge her or her family" until she had been accepted; "she was to call them when they went through"!
Now mind you this is like the millionth time I have heard and seen this happen. The same thing happened when our children where toddler's. My husband
and I (American citizen's) where refused benefit's for our babies based on "income". The illegal immigrant sitting next to me who made "MORE"
money than my husband (yes I looked) was accepted to get "TOTALLY FREE HEALTH CARE FOR HER 3 CHILDREN"
Now who has the right to be mad in this situation? The illegal immigrant or me the hard working tax paying American with 3 American toddlers who
couldn't get help even though we made less than them at the time?
I have absolutely NO PROBLEM WITH "LEGAL IMMIGRATION" my husband in fact is from the Azores a set of islands off the coast of Portugal. BUT he came
here legally and has worked and paid taxes since he was 16 years old. ONE TIME when our kids where toddlers and we needed help paying "half" the
bill for shot's and exams we where turned down, while the illegal immigrant next to us and her 3 kids where taken in with open arm's and smiles. We
of course where sent packing out the door kid's in tow and sick!
If you are going to come here or anywhere for that matter do it LEGALLY; we ALL have laws for a reason. To maintain the peace! Otherwise get the heck
out and don't come back till you can do it right.
We have law's for a reason and if you break them you get the pokey time! It SHOULD be the same for ALL people not just those who paid and are paying
taxes to live here legally.
I have NO problem with the color of a person's skin or where it is they come from! BUT if you are going to migrate to a new country you need to do it
by the law or NOT do it at all. It is that simple.
In Reply to the Cali quote:
You are absolutely right and we have far more than a mere 2.7 million illegal immigrants! That is the total number for one stinking Southern
California county around here!
It is fast approaching the grape picking season here in the North and the population of illegal immigrants is starting to explode. All you have to do
to see it is drive by a gas station on a main through street and see them standing around waiting for someone to give them work.Luckily for us here,
people have started to think twice and are going by the unemployement office and getting people off the board from there! (personally I think it is
about dang time)
