I served with a number of hispanic "citizen soldiers". They were obviously here legally very patriotic and very reliable and true to their duties. The ones I worked with were as good as any American born soldier and I will always respect them and consider them my friends. BUT! I am totally fed up with people making excuses for illegals and how they contribute to our country. The illegals take away from everybody. Legal immigrants as much as the rest of us. Twenty yrs. ago hispanics came to America for work and to escape the poverty and corruption south of the border. Today the poverty and corruption are as bad in some cases and the corruption is decidedly worse but now the added reason for coming North is the free ride that is waiting for them. Anybody who works with migrant workers and migrant camps know first hand that the so called legal immigrants are getting rich of the illegals by taking huge cuts out of the pay checks as labor bosses. Thats for the ones who do come here to work. Then you have the wel-fare crowd who play the subsedies for free housing, food and education.
I have confronted some who want to just want to let it go unchecked about the fact that few of them (Legal or not) pay taxes. Oh! they want to correct me saying "yes they do pay taxes" Everyone who make over X# of dollars payes income tax. Absolutely! anyone making over X# does pay their taxes but, when they report less than X# of dollars they not only DON'T pay taxes they get refunds and didn't pay in a dime. I've farmed and know many farmers who continue to use migrant workers and this is first hand facts. I know one farmer who refused to sign a workers tax forms allowing the worker to receive a refund and was threatened by the state that his quota's and tobacco cards would be pulled (for review) if he didn't sign the forms. The worker in question was know to be an illegal yet the forms were signed and the illegal worker got his tax refund. The illegal immigrant problem is just one of the major factors that are distroying this nation. When you start taking a mans wealth and giving it to the corrupt and lazy and useless the wealthy will leave. They don't have to stay here and tolorate this stupidity. I wouldn't. If I could afford it I'd move my family and myself somewhere that wasn't so screwed up. If enough of the wealthy in this nation decide to leave what is going to be left. I guess the new mexico border will be the Canadian border.
Canada you better start securing your borders now, before the united states of mexico starts crossing over for its share of your property and wealth.
I say that any one proven to be here illegaly must be immeadiatly transported back across the border with any children they have. Don't give me that "thats so cruel, the children had nothing to do with it" Yes I hate the hardship the kids would face but, until there is some real diterrant to the anchor baby scheme it will continue to happen. And then there is the argument that it would cost too much to send all the illegals back. BULL! it would be a fraction of what it is costing by continuing to support them. And all the necessary initities are already in place. They just need to be better manned, that would put some of obamuslims stimulis money to a proper use.
Well I've written my book for the night. We'll have rebuttle in the morning.
