This thread only shows me how out of touch people are when it comes to this illegal immigration issue.
What part of the word ILLEGAL
do you fail to understand?
This has nothing to do with racism, it has nothing to do with what the USA did hundreds of years ago. It has everything to do with people knowingly
and willfully breaking a law, and this isnt some small infraction like jay walking. This has to do with the security of an entire nation!
If we have no idea who is entering our country, how can we stop people who want to do us harm? Terrorists? Serial killers/rapists? Are you so naive as
to believe that every illegal immigrant is a honest hardworking person?
If I break a law, get caught, and have my day in court, do you really think the court is going to give a damn if I say: " You guys dont understand,
Im a good hardworking person! Sure, I broke a law, but so did this country! You guys took this land illegally! Now, have some compassion and just
dismiss my crime." That will never and should never work.
This topic is something that hits close to home for me. Ive spent most of my life in southern california, basically the front lines of illegal
immigration. I appreciate people from Canada or other countries chiming in, but Im sorry, you have NO IDEA what its like dealing with this BS on a
When people come here illegally, it affects everything and everyone where I live. Have you seen hospitals go out of business because illegals dont pay
their bills? Guess what? I have, and now my hospital which used to be nice, is overcrowded, over run, by these same people who bankrupted multiple
ones already. Its frustrating.
Have you ever been driving your nice new car, you worked your ass off to buy, then rear ended by an illegal, driving a beater he doesnt care about,
with no license, no insurance etc... I have! And let me tell you it was an awesome experience! My insurance went up, I couldnt sue someone who has
nothing so I ended up paying $4000 out of pocket on chiropractic bills. I still have back problems.
Have you seen what has happened to our L.A. public school system? Most of the children attending dont speak English, and dont make any attempt to
learn. The district actually had to fire most of the teachers and hire bilingual ones. Not to mention the quality of education plummeted, seeing the
classes are so overcrowded. This all comes out of my taxes.
Have you seen how many gangs there are now? Where do you think they get their drugs and guns they sell? You guessed it! Smuggled across the border,
then sold and used on our kids....
I could go on and on and on but Im sure you're getting the point. It has truly become ridiculous. We need to secure our borders. Drug Cartels come up
here and murder our LE's. And its only getting worse.
If these people are such hardworkers, why the hell dont they work hard and make their country great? Oh no! That requires TOO MUCH work right? Its
easier to just sneak into a place that has worked hard for the past 200 years to be great. I get it.
And for all you people who complain about the US, saying we dont do enough for other countries.... Why do you feel so entitled to our money, food, and
resources?!?!? We do ALOT for people and we are very tolerant to all the ingrates who disrespect us despite our good will and generosity.
Of course we cant fix the problems of the world, but at least we try to make a difference. Are we always successful? No, of course not. But tell me
one country that has done more for the international community....Dont worry I'll wait.
If everyone worked hard, organized, and banded together, people wouldnt need the US, they would be able to help themselves. To me there is no excuse
why this hasnt happened yet.
Everyone bashes the US, then when something terrible happens everyone expects us to drop everything and swoop in and rescue everyone. Then when we do
go try and help, people criticize us and say we were too slow, and that we didnt do enough.
To me its all BS and Im sick of it.
