With decades of “we want our rights” precedents from which to draw, illegal immigrants are now demanding that they be afforded the same rights as US citizens. Thousands of banner wielding and sign-carrying illegals have attended country-wide protests, organized in large part by left-wing anti-American-sovereignty organizations such as Open Borders and MEChA (which advocates “re-conquering” the US southwest—and more than likely conquering other areas of our country—for its mythical nation of Aztlan), to demonstrate against any attempts by the United States to protect its borders.
As is usual fare for much illegal activity in the United States, charges of “racism” are readily and generously used in these protests. If anyone in the US dares to try to protect its borders, this intimidation attempt is always used. It’s “racist” to protect our borders. Recent lawsuits filed jointly by the ACLU and CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) have even told us it’s “racist” to spy on terrorists. The inevitable goals of the leftist agenda are now being pushed into our faces, homes, businesses, schools and now our streets. This is called “destroying America from within”. Note: Although the leftist-indoctrination, now at the high school and even middle school levels, seems to be working on our children—apparently it isn’t working fast enough for the increasingly anarchistic mindset.
The US House of Representatives passed a bill in December to protect our borders. This bill is now before the Senate. There are increasing attempts by the Mexican government to intimidate US Senators into voting down the border protection bill—the bill that is widely supported by “legal” Americans. The Mexican government receives billions of US dollars annually from the illegal aliens it has successfully placed on US soil. There is no way it will part with this “cash cow”, without a fight. The Mexican government also seems to say “pay no attention to our drug trade, which is causing havoc and violence along the US-Mexico border”—this too is providing addition revenues to that country.
In other words, the Mexican government, Open Borders, MEChA, LULAC and other left-wing organizations are all demanding that the US pay no attention to its laws—or to terrorists. Illegal immigrants and their handlers are telling us: “Our ‘rights’ trump the US, its Constitution, its citizens and its laws. Our wants and needs overshadow any of yours!” They are also telling us that we do not have the “right” to protect ourselves or to affect anything that makes illegals “uncomfortable”. Our rights end when illegal aliens and the left-wing anti-American contingents say they do. And they’re becoming more vocal and activist every day.
I agree that US businesses unlawfully employing illegal aliens should be prosecuted. But, the best way to ensure this won’t occur, in the first place, is to stop the flow of millions entering our country illegally each and every year. Please don’t forget, many of these have already been identified as terrorists. Either we stop the wave of illegal immigrants into the country, and actually—for once—have the guts to enforce our own laws or we will become a chaotic and anarchistic nation. And very soon, we will be a sovereign nation no more.
