Actually anyone who says illegal immigration is bad is a liar.


Are you one of them ? You said it isn't bad, shouldn't be a problem to answer that.

Why do you confuse legitimate immigration issues with "hate"?

I gave it a chance. Looks like your Poet is only looking at one side of the issue.

Besides.. this poem is Fiction. It seeks to make it look like immigrants Never take jobs away from the nationals but this is highly misleading and false. Don't you go confusing that with hate now - because it happens all the time.

I am not confusing anything.

Maybe you are the one confused?

She based the poem around the views of a man she knew, a man ( who like many others these days ) seemed to tar all immigrants with the same brush, and who seemed to spout off an unjustified hate for people with no facts or figures to back it up. The poem is her personal opinion on that matter. An opinion which I happen to agree with. She states it really well.

My opinion is that we are all humans, we all inhabit the same planet. Why can't we get along?
I'm sure if an alien race were to attack us w'ed all fighting alongside each other to protect what is ours. Why can't we just have that mentality about us now before there is a possible threat? : (

Well, illegally breaking into a new developed country only to enforce your old way of life on yourself and others whether it's raping, crime in general, religious doctrination, is not the first step to get along.
Do you actually believe that the majority of illegal immigrants that get in trouble choose to get along and just happen to hog crime?

Here in the UK sometimes immigrants are an issue, for example the extremist kind and the creation of ghettos in cities and towns, as well as other issues such as milking the NHS and welfare system and getting payments sent to their relatives as well as free healthcare whilst not contributing, there is such a thing here as an NHS tourist.

Whilst not all immigrants are of this ilk, some are hard working, respectable and have better 'caring for your family' ethics than the average UK national as well as not conforming to the 'getting drunk whenever possible' ethic of a percentage of youth / 20/s /30 somethings.

The problem is IMMIGRATION being destructive to society, as it is unsustainable, the cost to the NHS, local councils and the governments is very very costly, free housing for most, free money, free healthcare etc has strained these resources so much that getting a GP appointment has become practically impossible, waiting weeks, the elderly and those needing operations have had to wait or even died waiting because hospitals cannot cope so waiting lists for operations are off the charts, stories of the elderly being left on trolleys in corridors for days in hospitals, getting a decent dentist is difficult as most are closing their doors to new patients as they cannot cope, there is a national housing shortage which has led to landlords in the private sector charging over the odds for substandard housing and people don't have much choice if they cannot get on the property ladder, the recession has made lending difficult, people at the lower end of the social scale have been denied payments or have suffered more reductions to the benefits they could receive because the government has over stretched it's resources, the job market has become saturated with workers from Eastern Europe / India / wherever accepting lower payments as they often live in groups like students, sharing costs and sending money back to Poland or wherever, money which isn't staying the the UK, people have found it more difficult getting work due to this strata being taken, previously students and unqualified workers would take these jobs, schools have waiting lists for entries etc etc etc.

Essentially the previous government opened the doors to immigration an overwhelmingly unsustainable amount, the infrastructure of the UK cannot cope, the people already here. the tax payers and those whose relatives fought for their families freedom have suffered, they feel betrayed by their own government. IMMIGRATION IS AN ISSUE.

One of the first letters I received was from a junior hospital doctor working close to Heathrow airport. ‘Every single week, I see people who have been flown in from all over the world with a variety of extremely serious health problems,’ he wrote. ‘Many of these people had to be wheelchaired on to the plane because they were too unwell to walk on board. I understand the temptation to come to Britain, but we often have our Intensive Therapy Unit full of patients without NHS numbers who are there for weeks or months with no means or intention to pay, which impacts on our resources.’



Set up by Labour, but acknowledged as the leading authority by governments of every hue, the Migration Advisory Committee finds that foreign workers do indeed take jobs that would otherwise go to Britons who are qualified and willing to do them.
To be precise, it estimates that 23 Britons are denied work for every 100 migrants allowed in – meaning that Labour’s open-door policy denied jobs to 160,000 British workers between 2005 and 2010, while substantially pushing up the costs of housing and schools.

Prof John Howson, senior research fellow at Oxford University, said the shortage of places for five-year-olds was the “biggest problem” facing schools in England.
He warned that successive governments had failed to properly prepare for the surge in applications, which has been caused by rising birth rates and the effects of immigration.

The problem is that EU free movement rules allow anyone across the EU to come and live in the UK.
They will be eligible for housing and social security without having paid a penny into the pot. Under the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, free movement is essential to EU membership and David Cameron hasn’t a hope in hell of renegotiating it.
Ministers wanted to avoid a repeat of the immigration chaos when Poland, Latvia and other former Eastern bloc states joined the EU three years earlier.
Immigration Minister Mark Harper yesterday insisted access to free healthcare will be limited to stop the NHS becoming an “international health service.” Entitlement to a string of welfare benefits will also be curbed.

Further abuses of loopholes in laws where immigrants in the UK have milked the system, perhaps making themselves and immigrants 'unpopular'.

Consider that the UK is comparative in land mass size to Oregon, though Oregon has 3.8 million population and the UK has more than 61 million. Imagine how the people of Oregon would feel if there were 5.2 million foreigners filling their lands within 10 years.

www.migrationwatchuk.co.uk...


Under the Labour government, 5.2 million foreign immigrants arrived in the UK.
The essence of the problem remains - namely that governments have lost control over our borders during the past fifteen years. This has resulted in immigration on a scale that is placing huge strain on our public services, housing, environment, society and quality of life. This note outlines the problem with reference to relevant Briefing Papers.
4. In recent years the focus of attention, particularly by the BBC, has been on migrants from the new Eastern European members of the EU. There has indeed been a massive inflow of migrants from Eastern Europe; by 2010 the number of people born in Eastern Europe but resident in the UK had risen to 776,000. [1] (Briefing Paper 4.9). The economic incentives for migration to the UK from Poland are significant - Polish families are able to increase their living standard by as much as four times by moving to the UK. (Briefing Paper 4.15)

Tory MP Priti Patel said: “Hard-pressed taxpayers will be appalled to see their pockets being pillaged to pay out millions of pounds in child benefit payments for children living in other parts of Europe.

“This is deeply unfair and demonstrates yet again that some European immigrants are using crazy EU laws to get away with abusing our benefits system. The Government must get these loopholes closed.”

Labour MP Keith Vaz said: “Most people would think it wrong for people to receive child benefit when the children are living abroad permanently.”

The figures for overseas-bound child benefits were published in Parliament yesterday. They showed that £55.1million is being paid out to 24,000 families with 40,000 children living abroad. More than £36.6million of that is made up of child benefit while the rest – up to £18.5million – goes on child tax credit for almost 7,000 youngsters.

Most of the cash goes to eastern Europeans, with Poland top of the list.

'Back door' will let in 20,000 migrants

A TRADE deal between the EU and India, worth billions of pounds, could allow 20,000 workers into Britain by the back door, a senior MP said yesterday

Chairman of the Commons Home Affairs Committee Keith Vaz expressed serious concerns about the deal because of “strings-attached” demands by Indian IT giants.

Mr Vaz said Downing Street needed to be more candid about the influx of migrants and the possibility that British graduates might be undercut and squeezed out of jobs.

He said: “My concern is that although the Government strongly believes in reducing the number of people who come into this country, this EU-India Free Trade Agreement comes with strings.

“And the strings are that thousands of visas will be given to Indian companies to enable them to come and work in the EU, including the UK, under the intra-company transfer arrangements.

“So it comes at a cost, and that will be the effect on real immigration. They say they want to bring down immigrant numbers into the tens of thousands, but that’s not going to be achievable if you count all these intra-company transfer visas.”




Now half of sham marriages involve foreign students: Members of bogus colleges who face being kicked out marry Britons and EU citizens to prolong their stay.
Figures come from a snapshot Home Office survey over three months
It is revealed 50% of ceremonies involved people who had first entered as students

PUBLISHED: 00:02, 6 June 2013 | UPDATED: 08:24, 6 June 2013

In a major new immigration scam, half of all bogus weddings now involve foreign students.
The revelation shows the full scale of the past abuse of the student visa system.
The non-EU nationals faced removal from Britain after their bogus colleges were shut down in a crackdown by the Government.

A Home Office survey over three months revealed that 50 per cent of the ceremonies involved people who had first entered the country as students. But, instead of returning home, they are arranging fake weddings with British nationals or EU citizens to prolong their stay, often paying thousands of pounds in fees to 'fixers'.
Under a Brussels edict, marrying an EU citizen can grant the same rights to stay as marrying a Briton.
Officials say the trend shows that the migrants' true reason for travelling to the UK in the first place was to settle, not to study. Last year, they identified a suspected 2,000 sham marriages.

A snapshot Home Office survey over three months revealed that 50 per cent of the ceremonies involved people who had first entered as students.

While fewer than half of Britain’s police forces contributed to the data, meaning that the true figures will be much higher, the figures show that the total number of foreigners arrested for committing crime has risen by 76% in three years, going from 51,899 arrests in 2008 to 91,234 arrests in 2010.

One unfortunate area, Cambridgeshire, recorded an astounding 17,689% rise in arrests of foreign criminals in this period.

It is estimated that if all the Police Authorities in Britain had submitted figures, they would reveal that a staggering 750,000 foreign criminals have been arrested since 2008.

Illegal immigration isn't destroying our country, our financial system is. Remove it and force able bodied people to work, then immigration becomes a non-issue... just like welfare, foodstamps, unemployment, and every other social issue we're faced with today.

I hate how people forget that their ancestors were all immigrants. You'd think after a few centuries people would gain a tolerance and accept people in like people accepted their ancestors in. Yes, I think that immigrants should have to check in and all of that, but that's a safety precaution. Everyone should have a chance. It's just a shame that our economy is making the tension a lot worse.

A poem justifying genocide, we truly live in the age of the psychopaths. You can create whatever post you want in blatant violation of the UN Convention on Genocide, but it still doesn't change the fact that genocide is genocide and your engaged in criminal conspiracy to commit genocide as defined by international law.



Convention on the
Prevention and Punishment
of the Crime of Genocide

Article 1
The Contracting Parties confirm that genocide, whether committed in time of peace or in time of war, is a crime under international law which they undertake to prevent and to punish.

Article 2
In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:

(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

Article 3
The following acts shall be punishable:

(a) Genocide;
(b) Conspiracy to commit genocide;
(c) Direct and public incitement to commit genocide;
(d) Attempt to commit genocide;
(e) Complicity in genocide.


By creating a post to justify mass immigration that causes severe economic hardships on native ethnics, which prevent and diminish gainful employment and create conditions of life that will cause the genocide of that group as defined by International Law. You are willfully engaging in Article 3 subsection (c) for support of Article 2 subsections (b),(c), and (d).

Your in direct violation of subsection (b) because if someone protests the mass immigration they are "racist" or "haters". Which is a form of emotional abuse as it is a psychological attack meant to beat down the person you you are trying to or advocating for, the genocide of.

Indirectly, you advocate in favor of committing acts that will cause the destruction of a group of people(ethnic Northern Europeans) in whole or in part. Mass immigration has already caused the partial destruction of Northern European peoples.

All of this is already leading to Article 2 subsection (d), as in many areas, Northern Europeans, are assumed to be, or they will outright be called racist/hater/bigot, if Northern Europeans wish to procreate from among their own ethnicity's.


You are defending genocide, you are advocating in favor of genocide.

It is totaly idiotic to think for one second a piece of paper making you a legal entrant or an illegal entrant to a nation changes anything.

Just remember that when invaders joke about stealing multiple identies to send food stamp money, welfare, medicines paid with Medicaid back to the home country to fuel the smuggling of drugs and humans across borders. I have seen this with my own eyes. I have watched cops just let illegals go from traffic stops. Of course I was shocked and asked the cop why he would just let them go like that. No ID, registration, papers, nothing. You know what the cop told me. He was doing me a favor. He asked me what I wanted done and of course I said tow his stuff take him in question him and what not. He said why. It will cost ME money to have his car towed it will cost me money to have someone try to find out the identity of a person who doesn't even know who they are. If he was taken in it would have cost thousands just to figure out which country the man belongs to. It makes sense it really does unless we hit this nail on the head we lose at every angle.
