Illegal Immigration Issue Fueled by Mexican Arrogance

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming, in every facet, an American, and nothing but an American ...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people." -- Theodore Roosevelt 1907

This excerpt from Roosevelt's speech a little over 100 years ago really sums up the key issue in the illegal immigration debate today. In all the issues raised in the debate over illegal aliens, would the temperature of the debates be turned down a few notches if (especially) Mexican illegal aliens spoke English and REALLY strived to BE an American in all ways possible? I think so. I'm not saying the issue would go away, but the anger would be less.

The problem is that not only are Mexican illegal migrants making NO effort to join the melting pot with the rest of us, but are going out of their way to FLAUNT the fact that they are Mexicans living (and leeching) in America. The are under the faulty notion that America "stole" their land (meaning Texas, Southern California and everything in between) and they are reclaiming what is theirs.

In their warped world-view, they see nothing wrong with demanding and accepting free schooling for their children, free health-care, free social services, and freedom from paying those pesky income taxes. They actually feel that America OWES them so much, that we can never repay the reparations due.

Asian, European, Pakistani, Indian, Russian and Filipino immigrants....subscribing to Teddy Roosevelt's philosophy and the melting pot theory, arrive here every year and there are no protests, no accommodations. We in-fact welcome them as well we should.

For some reason, Americans don't want to be nurses and if it wasn't for the Philippines recognizing this and making a cottage industry out of training and supplying millions of nurses for our hospitals, we would have much more of crisis in that industry than we do now. All of these immigrants work hard, become Americans, and are proud of it. No special favors, no waiving of the laws. They want the American Dream and are willing to work for it and play by the rules to get it.

Everything changes when it comes to Mexicans. What is completely inexplicable is the American response: accommodation. Bi-lingual voting ballots? Bi-lingual phone systems (press 1 of English, 2 for Spanish), bi-lingual signage, our current "catch and release" program, all-Spanish billboards by major US corporations, Spanish only television, radio, and newspapers. Having practically ALL government documents and forms available in English/Spanish, granting in-state college tuition rates to illegal costs us billions of dollars and why are we doing it?

Why can illegal aliens march in protest parades carrying the Mexican Flag right side up and the American Flag (it at all) upside down without being arrested and deported? Why are Americans...especially the Federal Government, the ACLU, and the Democrat Party all bending over backwards to honor the "rights" these illegal aliens have. THEY HAVE NO RIGHTS!

They are in our country illegally, flaunting it's laws and customs, going out of their way to thumb their noses at American citizens...and they talk about "rights"!

They clearly state they don't want to be Americans. They're here for the money and the free benefits. They can make four times the average Mexican salary working under the table for less than minimum wage here. And much of this; some reports estimate $60 Billion/year, is wired back to their HOME country: Mexico.

So again the question: Why are we as a nation going along with this and making accommodations for this illegal group? Why are we teaching Spanish in our schools? Look at the Jobs section of your local newspaper, especially in border states, and more and more jobs are requiring bi-lingual English/Spanish speaking and writing.

Is it because Mexico is a border state whose land we either bought from the Spanish or won in war? Then why aren't Canadians thundering over the borders: we tried to take them over during the Revolutionary War. Instead, the Canadians generally keep us out (as immigrants) and preserve their own culture(s). How they handle the Quebec succession movement is their business. But they all LIKE being Canadians, as much as one can, are loyal to their country, and have no intention of coming here and plundering our social services. Actually, we're the ones going there to buy prescription medication because it's so much cheaper in Canada than here.

So if common borders isn't the excuse, what is?

Why both Obama and Clinton support illegal immigration is obvious: they see the illegals as a vast pool of voters.....Democrat voters. Why else would they oppose the simple act of having to show proof of citizenship before you can vote?

Why President Bush supports it is less clear. In fact, I have NO IDEA what is motivating his immigration/amnesty plan as it clearly is not in the best interests of the United States.

As to the rest of the pro-illegal Republicans, a large part of it is the voter issue. Hispanics tend to be Catholic and strong in their faith. The Republicans see themselves as the party of Christianity and hope to win over the illegal Hispanics too.

Then there's the "we can't just deport 15-17 million people. It can't be done!" crowd. Sure it can and with little expense to the United States. When an illegal alien comes to the attention of authorities regardless of the reason, they should be hauled before a judge and required to provide proof of citizenship. If they can not, we should not let them go with an "order to appear" or even put them in jail. We should immediately take them to the nearest airport, put them on an AeroMexico plane to Mexico City; end of story. Oh, and we confiscate any personal property or cash they have and use that towards paying for the program as well.....and deport any family members or friends who are here illegally.

AeroMexico will not charge us because we will revoke their ability to fly over or land in American airspace. They will have to receive reimbursement from the Mexican Government.

This includes ANYONE from children to felons. Why should we fill up our already overcrowded jails with illegal alien criminals, many encouraged to migrate here by the Mexican Government. And if they carry out criminal acts in the US: still deport them and let Mexico City deal with it's own filth.

Former Mexican President Fox, on a recent book tour, stated that the Mexican economy was growing and they needed their workers back. Lets help him.

As the forced deportations increase, the influx of illegals will slow. And as a supporter of Ron Paul's thoughts on Imperial America in the 21st century, if we bring all our troops from overseas home, we will have more than enough manpower to police our borders.....and save a lot of money in the process.

And we Americans must take some responsibility too. We want all our consumer goods cheap. That's what started this in the first place: creating a sub-class of cheap labor. We had that once before: it was called slavery. Like slavery, it's time to give this "cheap at any price" philosophy up. Strict penalties on employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens including jail time for executives. Be willing to mow your own lawn if you can't afford non-illegal gardeners.

But the ones to really blame are the arrogant Mexicans who spit on the words of Teddy Roosevelt. Their attitude is responsible for inflaming the passions of this nation. Their attitude is responsible for the nation-view of Latinos in general. My heart goes out to the LEGAL Mexican immigrants who came here, learned English, earned their citizenship, and consider themselves Americans. They will suffer the most via association and deserve it the least.

So America, lets stop bowing at the alter of the illegal alien. They have NO right to be here, they are entitled to NO rights under the law, and NO more handouts. The only thing they "entitled" to is a one-way ticket back to Mexico.
