It amazes me to see bigoted Americans protect those that created the immigration problem, all the while loudly and publicly blaming the immigrants
that are lured here by the promise and hope a job and benefits that are not available from the country they come from.
Too many people ignore the cause of the immigration problem and to go on stating you've had three generations as if that make you someone better than
anyone else proves nothing except I know you are glad someone in your family tree decided to immigrate to the USA for the benefits that you take for
granted these days.
I do not support the illegality of immigrants in America anymore than that of a white person, and yes, I am Hispanic, born of Mexican parents from
Mexico. While I have only ever considered myself an American, I will not ignore my family background. I have never been arrested or incarcerated. I
have worked my whole life, put myself through high school and college with no aid or scholarship money to make my life easier. The means to pay for
my college came from being a veteran and I used those benefits with no shame for doing so to get a degree that allowed me to return to active duty as
a commissioned officer.
I served my nation honorable from Viet Nam in 1969 through the first Gulf War I and an number of late 90's peace keeping missions. I separated in
1994. I had a successful and extensive career as an Infantry Officer and I was successful not because someone gave me a break but because I could do
what was expected as good if not better than my white and black counterparts.
I am proud to be American, but to see supposed Americans that have never had to work or struggle for anything in their lives makes me realize that
those bigots that seem to think they are so much better than the rest of the world are just another part of the problem that the corrupt politicians
count on to ensure their ability to pass ignorant legislation to the determent of tax paying Americans. The politicians count on good old billy bob
and willy to not make waves. It appears that aspect of the plan is working quite well.
I don't support illegals, but I do support admitting the source of the immigrant problem and for those that refuse to see just how hypocritical they
are, I can only say, get informed and stop being so ignorant about your so called America and the corrupt politicians that represent you. These
corrupt politicians and corporations are selling Americans down the river just as much as they are selling legal immigrants down the river. Wake up
to the lies and falsehoods or else consider yourself part of the problem that is crippling this nation.
I speak fluent English, Spanish, German and French and can manage a little Russian if pressed. I learned languages during my extensive military
career so that I could effectively communicate with others of other cultures and languages.
I am the son of a couple of Mexican immigrants that came here and thus allowed me to pursue the American dream because although I was born here in the
most bigoted State in the Union, Texas, I managed to overcome their bigotry to make my life better regardless of whether whites wanted me to fail or
get incarcerated for false charges so they could feel better about being third a generational bigots. Now that must be something to be so proud of to
claim three generations of bigotry while calling themselves true Americans and supposed heirs to this great nation.
The American dream is turning into a nightmare for everyone and its not because of the illegal aliens. Look at those that legislate the laws that
allow for illegals to receive benefits legally while Americans don't qualify. This should anger whites but alas its easier to whine and complain
like little girls than to face the music of the lies being spewed by corrupt politicians.
All the funding and legislation was designed by intent and from what I can see, most Americans don't care who the politicians are that created the
problem because that would require having to confront the source of the problem and as we all know, bigots wont speak to the source of the problem.
Must be some latent cowardice that prevents these bigots from speaking truth to the source of our illegal immigration problems.
Instead the bigots stigmatize and blame all the ills and corrupt actions of American politics on the illegal immigrants as if they had any say so in
the laws that they benefit from. Illegals don't have a voice, and yet they receive the blame for our immigration problem from those that refuse to
open their eyes to the truth of the problem.
How cowardly to excuse the corrupt politicians that make the laws while whining about the illegals that use the services that are promoted and paid
for by the legislation that gets passed by corrupt American politicians doing the bidding of major corporations for the sake of profits and greed.
How convenient and how hypocritical.
Anyway as for me, I don't support anyone's illegality, but I do support truth, justice and the American values that made this nation what it once
was. In an odd way, even I have become an ancient relic of a dinosaur to what this nation once was. I guess that makes me different, but it does not
make me un-American.
Thanks for the posting but from what I can see the communists plan to divide and conquer is working well and all the so called blinded patriots are
being led to their future graves by following such a fictitious lie as to believe that the illegals are the sole cause of our immigration problems.
Those that would benefit from such a divisiveness of our nation are the real enemies of America and I for one will not close my eyes to those that
have sold this nation down the river while calling it business as usual. I will not blame some other race for the ills and corrupt actions of a
corrupt political group.
Lastly I would say to my fellow Americans that using a shotgun when a rifle round focused on the target is required is to admit your inability to
admit the true source of the immigration problem. It is this type of bigoted cowardice that has brought down this nation and I for one do take
offense to the whining and crybabies that seem to think they matter more than others because they were born here.
Thanks for the posting.
