Re: Civil Rights: The Second Wave, Bostonians Call for a Humane Immigration Policy
27 Apr 2006
"Imagine trying to cross the border from Mexico into the U.S.in the blistering heat of summer", etc., etc., etc. No! Don't even imagine it, let alone try it! Stay where you are if you don't have permission to enter. You don't deserve sympathy for breaking the law. Whatever happens if you do try is your own fault, not that of the country you're trying to ILLEGALLY enter! These are not political refugees, they're economic migrants. ILLEGAL immigrants and their wooly-headed sob sisters on this side of the border still can't get used to the idea that they're not above the law. NO OTHER NATION in the world - including Mexico/Brazil/ El Salvador- allow unauthorized immigration! Nowhere else would such ILLEGAL entry and "squatting priveleges" be tolerated, including the countries these ILLEGAL economic migrants came from. Instead of selfishly fleeing, these golddiggers should stay put and organize and protest for improved conditions in their own societies. It's a total cop-out and blatant contradiction to use the simplistic alibi that problems in their own mismanaged, corrupt and exploitive countries are all the fault of the U.S. - and then come here and enjoy everything they can get their greedy hands on themseves. They want to have it both ways! Just like they want to have dual citizenship, in order to crassly work both sides of the street for their own narrow self-interest. And who is going to lose out again, once the dust finally settles? The white working class, of course. The "lower middle class" proles, so very 'politically uncorrect' and so despised by academic leftist snobs showing off in grand public poses for those darling ILLEGAL immigrants. Despite all the self-serving myths, many of these unscrupulous immigrant make out very well for themselves, reaping the rewards of their shadowy status by getting paid in cash and NOT paying taxes. They want all the advantages without any of the obligations. Many no mistake about it, this is no lofty, idealistic movement - these jokers are on the make, pure and simple!
