They are little different than the barbarians that invaded Rome. They are looking for money.
They invaded Italy and burned and pillaged everything in sight. Most illegal immigrants have entered America in order to find work for a livable wage. In my mid there's a difference between beating people over the head with clubs and scrubbing their toilets.
The only reason anyone would possibly leave their native land at the risk of death or being threatened and spit on by us is because they're looking for money and they've found a way to get it and they're exploiting it.
Yeah, because they can't make a living in their own country. They're doing for themselves what is necessary to have a life that doesn't involve starvation and squalor. I find it hard to believe that if your positions were reversed you would do anything less.
They don't give a rat's toot about me or you and they will never say they do unless someone in uniform is threatening to throw them out or a native like me decided to throw them to the ground by their belt-buckle with a thud.
But I suppose you care about me. Really, I'm touched.
If they cared about you or me, they never would have came.
If they had the capacity for a decent living in their original homes they never would have come, either.
The country's history or greatness is not driving them, it's our wealth and they were never invited.
I'd have to say that most immigrants decided to come hear for economic reasons. How many immigrants in the 18th and 19th centuries were saying, "Gee, America kicks ass. Let's move there."
They know they don't belong here and they know we strongly don't want them here. They know we're madder than a starving dog but they don't give a rat's piss because they've got our money coming in split several hundred ways, their anchor baby who nullifies our immigration system of laws and our nation's sovereignty.
Were you stung by a Mexican as a child?
You think I, a fifth generation man from a WASP military family am going to lay down to these scumbags!?
You could try understanding them a little. From everything you've said you obviously don't.
These wetbacks who had no hand in the fighting for this country or its building and came out of a river infested with ticks and begging me for shoes?
Heaven forbid you might actually give charity to someone less fortunate than you. I didn't have any hand in the fighting for this country, either - I'm 19 and a college student - am I not an American, either?
It seemed easy enough for them because we're connected by land.
Aren't Christians supposed to be kind to their neighbors?
You say we should 'invest a little time and money in making Mexico a better place'. First of all, Mexico is not a poor country, second of all, many many many of these invaders are not from Mexico, third of all we've given them more jobs than we should have or they ever deserved from us
There could be all the money and jobs in the world in Mexico and it could still be an impoverished nation.
and fourth of all and lastly, since when did we EVER owe Mexico, El salvador, Guatamela or any of those barbarous, drug peddling indian people a GODDAMN thing besides a well deserved bullet through their goddamn little blood pumping hearts!!!!?
Your own favorite president seemed to think we owed them defense against European imperialism. You did say you were a fan of TR, correct? Perhaps you should invest some time in looking up the Roosevelt Corollary.
I owe them nothing, WE owe them nothing and have been forced to give them too damn much already by the works of the stupid government and our greedy, vile 'executives'.
If you dislike the government so much...well, there isn't a door, but nonetheless don't let it hit you on the way out.
This stupid Democratic government has time and time again failed to act and the problem has gotten worse and worse and created more and more problems.
I figure this could mean one of two things: Either you're deluded enough to suggest that our government is solely run by Democrats (the Democratic-controlled Congress is still only about half a year old and the Court and the White House are still both Republican-controlled) or you're just on a tirade against democracy. Either way you're off your rocker.
You think I want to see my future daughter courting a goddammn Mexican!?
Shouldn't that be her choice?
I don't care what the politicians say, this is OUR land and don't you forget it.
And we only had to kill...how many?...of those natives you despise so much to get it.
We could stop them from coming here easy too. You've just been lied to and fooled by your television and your stupid friends.
Now you know my friends, too. You're a riot, friend.
The way they've been doing it for milleniums still works today. Build a goddamn wall with tower and put men in them with machine guns and sniper rifles. Shoot to Kill my countrymen. You see someone, shoot the bastard. You want to see what the turning of a faucet handle looks like? They'd stop the very next day. Then we should go after their goddamn drug rings and sentence them to death. That's what I would do anyway and that's another story.
There isn't such a long road between the government treating foreign citizens in a certain way and the government treating its own citizens in a certain way. Would that bother you?
