Why do you support the ILLEGALS?
Don't try to answer this by who do I hate the Illegals. Illegals are here in this country illegally. They have no rights to be here and certainly
can not use or prescribe to the rights of our constitution.
This problem has gone unnoticed far too long. Too many administrations have put this problem aside as it takes further toll on our communities,
schools, workplace, & safety. Illegals continue to starve America from its efforts to support the unfortunate American Citzens. How much of our
state, fedral Aid and support is doled out to illegals?
The Federation for American Immigration Reform (an advocate group interested in immigration reform), used the U.S. INS statistics on how
many illegal immigrants are residing in each country and the U.S. Dept of Education's current expenditure per pupil by state, and found the estimated
cost of educating illegal alien students and U.S. citizen children of illegal aliens in 2004 was $29.6 billion.
The above is just the bare minimum estimate from 2004. And that is only for education. Factor in other costs that us the taxpayer has to foot
Subsidized housing, Food Stamps, Child Support, Free Health Care
Waves of illegal immigrants are taking a heavy toll on U.S. public lands along the Mexican border, federal officials say. Mike Coffeen, a
biologist with the Fish and Wildlife Service in Tucson, Arizona found the level of impact to be shocking. "Environmental degradation has become
among the migration trend's most visible consequences, a few years ago, there were 45 abandoned cars on the Buenos Aires refuge near Sasabe, Arizona
and enough trash that a volunteer couple filled 723 large bags with 18,000 pounds of garbage over two months in 2002."
"It has been estimated that the average desert-walking immigrant leaves behind 8 pounds of trash during a journey that lasts one to three days if no
major incidents occur. Assuming half a million people cross the border illegally into Arizona annually, that translates to 2,000 tons of trash that
migrants dump each year."
Illegal immigrants trying to get to the United States via the Mexican border with southern Arizona are suspected of having caused eight major
wildfires in 2002. The fires destroyed 68,413 acres (276.86 km2) and cost taxpayers $5.1 million to fight.
Illegal immigrants have also used many parks inside the United States to grow and then distribute illegal drugs, turning previously protected nature
areas into "heavily armed drug compounds".
Why should this continue?
Why is it even allowed?
Why do American Citizens stand up for this kind of behavior?
My last question is Why Do you hate AMERICA?
The citizens of America are the most generous citizens in the entire world. When tsunami hit in SE Asia, it was the Americans who provided the MOST
monetary relief. When Chile and Haiti were hit with Earthquakes it was the American citizen who provided the MOST monetary relief. Why do you call
us Racist, bigots, when all we are trying to do is protect our LANDS. We care about the Nations of the globe, but when we are the ones in trouble and
are trying to fight this problem..We get called names.
Americans have always stood up for those outside of our borders, now when it is our turn no one wants to stand up for us. Well, Citizens of the US
need to show that they believe in their country will do everything to protects its border.
Think of this nation as your HOUSE. You put up a fence to keep strangers out, you lock your doors & windows to keep strangers out, you put up a alarm
system to keep thieves and crooks out, and if all fails you call 911 to come to rescue. The citizens of the border states have been dialing 911 for
the longest time, and now Arizona has come to the rescue.
To those who continue to show support against reform, do you keep your doors open, windows open, and go to sleep soundly knowing you are going to be
