Illegal trespassers transform into law-abiding immigrants

Pro-amnesty marchers participated in the United Farm Worker campaign “Con La Union de Campesinos Tendremos Papeles” (With the UFW We Will Have Papers) yesterday afternoon — with the expectation that President Obama will begin pushing immigration reform legislation within weeks.

Phoenix was the last stop of a series of rallies across several states, calling for that the U.S. government to “honor the contributions” of illegal aliens to the economy of the United States.

The administration has repeatedly used the oxymoronic and hackneyed saw that Obama intends to grant citizenship to “law-abiding undocumented migrants.” Who are these law-abiding illegals? If you break the law entering the United States, exactly how do you become “law-abiding once here?” This glossary will assist in sorting through the convoluted language.

Although Obama made numerous promises on the campaign trail, the reality is that American citizens by the thousands each month are losing their jobs and homes. As jobless rates continue to escalate, they need the jobs that are available. Last month, the number of unemployed persons increased by 694,000 to 13.2 million, and the unemployment rate rose to 8.5 percent. This group of American unemployed  has nearly doubled in size over the past 12 months, according to figures released by the U.S. Department of Labor.

On January 21, the day after Obama’s inauguration, pro-amnesty marchers were out in force on the Washington, D.C. mall. “We voted in the millions and now we’re going to demand progress in the millions,” said the director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles. And although John McCain was the architect of the failed 2007 Comprehensive Immigration Reform, two-thirds of the Latino vote went to Obama.

    Today’s Republic has a headlined article on page 2 of the Valley section with the chuckle inducing title, Immigrants Seek Appreciation.

    I’d appreciate them if they obeyed our laws and respected our sovereignty and stayed home. Sneaking into the USA doesn‘t endear them to me..

    What a farce this newspaper is. It also had a large photo on page 1 of the same section (along with a smaller one) and the title under that was Migrants Rally at Capitol. They are unable to use the words “illegal” or “alien.”

    My friend and longtime neighbor, a civil engineer with twelve years at his place of employment lost his job just before Christmas and has not been able to find similar employment. He has been taking odd jobs to makes ends meet, but they are not meeting very well and his family is very likely to lose their home. This normally upbeat man is destroyed. American jobs need to be preserved for American workers.

  3. RA says:

    Andrew Thomas had it right when he commented recently – pointing to statistics on auto theft in Arizona – that there is an undeniable connection between illegal immigration and crime.
    Ray is right – the Repugnant is a farce – hopefully soon it will all be over for the ‘worst daily in the nation.’

    Off topic but, why is it John McCain and John Shadegg think so much more of their illegal alien neighbors than they do of their rightful constituents?

  5. Joe Evans says:

    They are both RINOs who think it will win them votes, Lindsay. That concept was proven incorrect when Obama beat McCain who had promised to resurrect his 2007 Shamnesty programs. And it doesn’t take much insight to see that John McShadegg has become McShadow. I would reregister as an Independent but the GOP needs conservative Republicans like me more than ever. We are being sold out at the highest levels.

    Millions voted AGAINST Obama and his buddies as well and we will all be voting too. I think there are far more who voted Dem that are awakening to what they have wrought than those who voted against him and wish they had jumped on that bandwagon. The 2010 elections should be interesting- IF the Republicans can tap into the anger that is all over this country.

    Will we ever have elections again, let alone honest ones, not tampered with by ACORN?
    How many of these “just good folks wanting a job” have stolen our identities or fraudulently filled out a voter registration form? All I know is that they really hated Prop 200 back in 2004.
