Illegal immigration is a real problem for this country, and not only for out-of-work Americans. Our southern borders are turning into war zones with drug smugglers, gun smugglers, and human traffickers having free rein while Obama‘s administration and Janet Napolitano‘s Department of Homeland Security do nothing and tell us “its’ ok … don’t worry … be happy!”
Trafficking in illegal aliens is also a danger to the illegal aliens themselves. Many illegal aliens from Mexico, South America, China, and other nations are transported here under unhealthy, even dangerous conditions. They have no real means of supporting themselves and put a real strain on America’s already dangerously strained economy by using tax payer provided services without paying any taxes.
Do I hate immigrants? Of course not. Most of us are descendants of immigrants. But our descendants immigrated legally. They came through Ellis Island or other immigrant entry ports. They came here to build something, to join a dream! They fought to earn their place in society and helped to build a great nation.
I have nothing against legal immigrants. I am not for punishing the children of illegal immigrants for the crimes of their parents. However, amnesty just rewards law breakers (and gives Obama an instant ACORN friendly voter block). Governor Perry’s providing education to children of illegal immigrants is a way to get them off the welfare rolls and turn them into productive members of society … rather than have them join gangs or vote in Obama’s (and other progressive-liberals) illegal alien voter blocks; is his way of dealing with a real problem! At least Perry is doing something! Like Sheriff Joe Arpaio is doing something. Obama’s administration is doing nothing … except perhaps selling guns to the Mexican Mafia (see “Operation Fast and Furious”)! Is Perry’s solution perfect… of course not. What solution ever is?
Do we need to stop the flood of illegal immigrants across our borders? Of course we do! Can we “pack up” all the illegals we currently have and ship them back? Probably not. Should there be some sort of path toward citizenship for them? Maybe so! But not in front of, or at the expense of, those trying to immigrate legally! Do we need to look at existing immigration laws and discuss possible streamlining, simplifying, or other changes? Probably so!
I think the discussion of the immigration issue and how to address related concerns needs to open and frank; with all relevent points considered! Not all would agree it seems!
An article on The Blaze reports that on Tuesday, the San Antonio Tea Party was part of a panel discussion supported by a local public radio station: 89.1 KSTX. The topic of discussion was the DREAM Act and the problem of illegal immigration.
Jonathon Bryant, a Government Studies teacher from John F. Kennedy High School attended the event along with some of his students (who, according to Bryant, may be illegals). Mr. Bryant asked a question of the panel about students that were illegal aliens and what should be done with them. After the president of the group affirmed his support for the laws governing illegal aliens in the schools, Mr. Bryant just couldn’t contain himself. He decided to levy the “Nazi” charge.
So this is what are teachers are teaching in our schools. Anyone with a view opposing the progressive-liberal agenda or supporting the laws of our nation is a “nazi.” Just another example of the intolerance of “progressive-liberal tolerance.”
