Illegal Immigrant Brochure

For those of you who would like a little reminder about what the illegal immigrants are doing, have a look at the (english) translation of the brochure which is published for all illegal immigrant wannabes by the Mexican Department of External Relations (a.k.a. Departamento Mexicano de Relaciones Exteriores). This is a branch of their Mexican government!

This is a quiet war. Some of their weapons are what we allow: our apathy and fear of labelling. They're quick to scream "Racist!" when all we want is justice. Their arsonal includes some of our own laws: We need to pass a law that does not allow a child born here of illegal immigrants to receive a legal citizenship! Times have changed, and so must our laws.

Tomorrow, don't forget to spend.

Mexico wants that american money flow...

Even if they did some net good (And I argue they do not), it still does not mean they should break the law.

In a time of terrorism (even democrat liberal hippies like me worry about that) should we really have a situation where seemingly anyone can get into our country?

Here is my personal plan: I think deporting so many millions at this point will be too hard, consider allowing them to be come citizens. BUT, only after they start to pay taxes, only after we carefully enforce the law and stop illegals from getting work, and only after we build a wall between the US and mexico.

This isnt racism: my great grand parents came to this country, one when he was only 12 years old. They came according to the law, however.

Immigration is such a complex issue, Saur.

Being from California, I sit on both sides of the fence. On the one hand, we are overwhelmed with those here illegally, and it costs us, the taxpayer. We need to tighten our boarders. On the other hand, why penalize children, who are innocent victims of their parent's inability to follow the law?

A double edged sword!

Saur♥Kraut said...

Barbara, We don't penalize their children; they do. Never forget, it's their choice to violate American laws and place their children in the middle of it all.

TSB, thank you, my friend. ;o)

Alex, but if we don't deport the illegals we lose the chance to screen them. And we also sanction what they've done. It's almost like saying "Congratulations! You broke the law but you were loud enough about it to cause us to back down." Most importantly, we haven't had the chance to screen them for contagious diseases and criminal records. Do you know that we are seeing leprosy and tuberculosis again, largely due to the influx from a third world country with poor sanitation and medical care?

Saur, this was sent to me in an e mail from friends out west. I hope you don't mind my putting it here, but I found it to be the best presented deconstruction of the issue I have read. I agree with you wholeheartedly and will be spending tomorrow for good reason.

"This letter sent to Senator Frist from a retired border patrol agent that has more common sense than all the bull being spewed from the Senate,with the exception of a few sensible representatives.

Dear Senator Frist

There is a huge amount of propaganda and myths circulating about illegal aliens, particularly illegal Mexican, Salvadorian, Guatemalan and Honduran aliens.

1. Illegal aliens generally do NOT want U.S. citizenship. Americans are very vain thinking that everybody in the world wants to be a U.S. citizen. Mexicans, and other nationalities want to remain citizens of their home countries while obtaining the benefits offered by the United States such as employment, medical care, in-state tuition, government subsidized housing and free education for their offspring. Their main attraction is employment and their loyalty usually remains at home.They want benefits earned and subsidized by middle class Americans. What illegal aliens want are benefits of American residence without paying the price.

2. There are no jobs that Americans won't do. Illegal aliens are doing jobs that Americans can't take and still support their families. Illegal aliens take low wage jobs, live dozens in a single residence home, share expenses and send money to their home country. There are no jobs that Americans won't do for a decent wage.

3. Every person who illegally entered this nation left a home. They are NOT homeless and they are NOT Americans. Some left jobs in their home countries. They come to send money to their real home as evidenced by the more than 20 billion dollars sent out of the country each year by illegal aliens. These illegal aliens knowingly and willfully entered this nation in violation of the law and therefore assumed the risk of detection and deportation. Those who brought their alien children assumed the responsibility and risk on behalf of their children.

4. Illegal aliens are NOT critical to the economy. Illegal aliens constitute less than 5% of the workforce. However, they reduce wages and benefits for lawful U.S. residents.

5. This is NOT an immigrant nation. There are 280 million native born Americans. While it is true that this nation was settled and founded by immigrants (legal immigrants), it is also true that there is not a nation on this planet that was not settled by immigrants at one time or another.

6. The United States is welcoming to legal immigrants. Illegal aliens are not immigrants by definition. The U.S. accepts more lawful immigrants every year than the rest of the world combined.

7. There is no such thing as the "Hispanic vote". Hispanics are white, brown, black and every shade in between. Hispanics are Republicans, Democrats, Anarchists, Communists, Marxists and Independents. The so-called "Hispanic vote" is a myth. Pandering to illegal aliens to get the Hispanic vote is a dead end.

8. Mexico is NOT a friend of the United States. Since 1848 Mexicans have resented the United States. During World War I Mexico allowed German Spies to operate freely in Mexico to spy on the U.S. During World War II Mexico allowed the Axis powers to spy on the U.S. from Mexico. During the Cold War Mexico allowed spies hostile to the U.S. to operate freely. The attack on the Twin Towers in 2001 was cheered and applauded all across Mexico. Today Mexican school children are taught that the U.S. stole California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. If you don't believe it, check out some Mexican textbooks written for their school children.

9. Although some illegal aliens enter this country for a better life, there are 6 billion people on this planet. At least 1 billion of those live on less than one dollar a day. If wanting a better life is avalid excuse to break the law and sneak into America, then let's allow those one billion to come to America and we'll turn the USA into a Third World nation overnight. Besides, there are 280 million native born Americans who want a better life. I'll bet Bill Gates and Donald Trump want a better life. When will the USA lifeboat be full? Since when is wanting a better life a good reason to trash another nation?

10. There is a labor shortage in this country. This is a lie. There are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of American housewives,senior citizens, students, unemployed and underemployed who would gladly take jobs at a decent wage.

11. It is racist to want secure borders. What is racist about wanting secure borders and a secure America? What is racist about not wanting people to sneak into America and steal benefits we have set aside for legal aliens, senior citizens, children and other legal residents? What is it about race that entitles people to violate our laws, steal identities, and take the American Dream without paying the price?

For about four decades American politicians have refused to secure our borders and look after the welfare of middle class Americans. These politicians have been of both parties. A huge debt to American society has resulted. This debt will be satisfied and the interest will be high.

There has already been riots in the streets by illegal aliens and their supporters. There will be more. You, as a politician, have a choice to offend the illegal aliens who have stolen into this country and demanded the rights afforded to U.S. citizens or to offend those of us who are stakeholders in this country. The interest will be steep either way. There will be civil unrest. There will be a reckoning. Do you have the courage to do what is right for America? Or, will you bow to the wants and needs of those who don't even have the right to remain here?

There will be a reckoning. It will come in November of this year,again in 2008 and yet again in 2010.

We will not allow America to be stolen by third world agitators and thieves.

Kathleen, beautiful! Thank you.

Fred said...

It will be interesting to see how many kids are absent from school.

Saur♥Kraut said...

Fred, Funny, I hadn't thought of that. Do you think they'd really jeapordize their standing that way, though? It's one thing to protest without name badges, but if kids are missing, the link to the parents is apparent...?

Senor Caiman said...

Excellent post.

The reason we’re in the boat were in is because of the liberal media. The liberal media has pounded on the white male for so long that I just want the Blacks and the Mexicans to provide me with a reservation where I can spend my twilight years. I won’t come off the consistent reservation. I just want a peaceful environment.

We are off to the mall tomorrow. Seriously.

I'm off on The Big Adventure!

See you on the other side!

Saur♥Kraut said...

Daniel, have a wonderful time, my friend! Take pictures, and lots of them!

Mr. Fabulous, I'm glad to hear it!

Mr. Gator, you are entirely correct. But it's not just white males. White females are the also attacked, just less vigorously because at one time we were oppressed too. The truth is, NO one alive did any serious oppressing whatsoever. NO one alive owned a slave. NO one alive fought in the Mexican-American war. I guess the Hatfields and McCoys are indicative of mankind's general outlook and ability to carry a grudge beyond the grave.

Please check out my blog later on this afternoon. Ihave much to say about this issue.
