Illegal Protests

Illegal immigration has to be stopped. The illegal immigrants are a huge strain on our social infrastructure. Taxpayers pay their medical bills, give them welfare and generally take care of them even though they openly flaunt their status. They are no better than the people we have locked up in prison for breaking other laws. Why should we treat them any differently?

Those protests were nothing but a slap in the face of every past immigrant who came to America legally, their offspring (of which we all are) and those waiting to come to America legally. To have these protests on May 1 is a slap on America. Does anyone remember the Soviet Union? May Day (as May 1st was called over there in the bad old days) was the day that the USSR rolled their tanks and nuclear weapons across Red Square to scare the rest of the world. The whole day smacks of communist overtones and so do these protests.

What about free speech? The protesters are not Americans so they don't have the right to free speech. They do not have the right to a free education, free medical care or anything else mentioned in the above paragraph. Every year, we pay millions to educate illegal children. Why? We also give financial aid to people who flunk out of college because they sat around all day smoking pot, falling on and off the wagon, robbing banks, sleeping with their professors and getting incompletes, but I just got tangential there.

I'm sick of this selective interpretation of the Bill of Rights. I’m pissed off at this Spanish version of the National Anthem. The President is right when he says that we need to sing it in English. If you want the rights and privileges of an American, become one the legal way. If you can’t do that, don't bitch when you don't get your way.

What about the kids born here who are the children of illegal immigrants? What happens to them? I partly agree with you, but that is a major snag in the idea of shipping all illegals back.

And yet you have no comment on Wal-Mart, which also fails to pay their fair share of healthcare therefore putting it on the taxpayers when their workers have to go on Medicaid.
