The Enemy Is Not AT the Gates – He Is Already INSIDE Them (Courtesy of President Bush, Homeland Security, and Congress)

The Enemy Is Not AT the Gates – He Is Already INSIDE Them (Courtesy of President Bush, Homeland Security, and Congress)

Looking at the swarms of people taking over the streets of some of our country’s largest cities and flying Mexican – MEXICAN – flags, I was overcome with a combination of despair and resentment.

These idiots don’t even have enough respect for America – where they are fed, clothed, employed, educated, given health care, and – far too frequently – incarcerated, to fly the US flag.  

Thomas Sowell gets it right: These are gate-crashers, not guests.

The politicians who fail to get this right – in whichever Party – will pay a severe price at the polls in November.

Obviously, President Bush doesn’t get it.  Neither does Senator McCain.  Or Senator Lindsey Graham, about whom, as a result of this issue I have finally made up my mind:  I loathe his sorry carcass.

President Bush, please forgive me if I laugh up my sleeve when I read that this past Saturday (after five years of negligence) you made a meaningless appeal for our immigration laws to be enforced.

Right.  I may not be the brightest bulb in the pack, but enforcing our country’s immigration laws has been your LOWEST priority during your time in office.

I agree that we need to do a better job of keeping illegal immigrants out.

But when we do let people in, we need to treat them better. Dealing with school and work visas can get ridiculous, and it takes too long to get green cards and citizenship.

elizabeth - for once (again) we agree on the need to keep people out. Once again, we DISagree on the need (or, rather, lack thereof) to treat them better. As it is, they are eating up our resources like locusts. (Try visiting a hospital emergency room in San Antonio -- illegals getting free treatment are numerous.) They also eat up our school resources and flood our prisons. And your point about green cards is nonsensical: Illegals are not entitled to green cards. Your comment is spoken like a truly out-of-touch Northeasterner. Come down to Texas, Arizona, or California for awhile. These people (and they ARE people) need to be sent back. Or, to get your fuzzy thinking in line, let's just apply THIS standard: Let's enforce our immigration laws to the same extent that Mexico enforces hers! (And, I assure you that Mexico enforces hers a good bit more rigorously than do we.) Moreover, let us deal with OUR illegal aliens as rigidly as Mexico does with HERS. (Hint: See any mass illegal parades sporting american or nicaraguan flags in Mexico City reported in the news lately? I didn't think so). -- gunjam

OK, elizabeth, which part of IL-legal do you not understand? Perhaps the purchase of a dictionary would serve you well.
And then take gunjam up on the offer to come to Texas to see the realities of illegal immigration.
Here are some realities for you, elizabeth:
Mexico cannot patrol her northern border because all her military is on the southern border to keep out the illegals from South America. If you are an illegal and caught in Mexico you are rat-hole the Mexicans call a jail until you are loaded on a bus and taken to the southern Mexican border where you are forced, at the point of a gun, to cross back over to South America. If you are a Mexican citizen, you cannot go from one Mexican state to the other without governmental approval. They want to change our government but don't have the cajones to change their own? What is wrong with that picture? It's not like Mexico is a poor nation. Only it's peons are poor. Mexico is the richest Spanish speaking nation in the whole damn world. And when was the last time you heard of a rocket scientist sneaking across our border? These are the very people Vicente Fox doesn't want.
I am sick of it. I am sick of going to McDonald's in Austin and no one there speaks English except for one girl who is struggling to take care of every customer. I am sick of them collecting welfare (which the Mexican government tells them how to do, by the way) on the back of me. I am sick of seeing Tejano friends who can't get a job because they have been low-balled, salary wise, by illegals.
Becoming an American, living in America is a priviledge, not a right. And Mexicans who sneak across our border have no rights.
Get it?

I think there was a misunderstanding here. I wasn't talking about illegals in terms of people who are here. I was talking about the legal immigrants who come here on work and school visas. Obviously, illegal immigrants do not have work and school visas; they do not have visas. As for green cards, if you have a green card you are not illegal.

hi, elizabeth! Ok. I confess: i misunderstood you. However, the very presence of the illegals and their horrendous overhead in terms of administration, law enforcement, and health-care provision, obviously will interfere with our treatment of legal immigrants in our midst. -- gunjam

With all due respect, illegal immigration didn't begin under Bush, and it won't end under him either. You are correct, he hasn't done very much about it in his 5 years, but he's talking about it now. That's more than was done under 8 years of Clinton, 4 years of the first Bush, Carter, etc. Reagan did take action, but it hasn't exactly worked out the way he envisioned.

I agree, however, that the illegal immigration issue needs to be resolved, sooner better than later. It's an absolute travesty that we are fighting to secure Iraq( which I agree with) while refusing to secure America. Sadly, this will most likely continue as politicians, in their own words, are worried about votes as opposed to worrying about what's best for America.

And, all the misinformation out there that is passed off as fact only clouds the issue even more. Seriously, if I hear one more person say "Illegals do the jobs Americans won't", I think my head will explode.

hi, danny -- Thank you for your comment. I agree with you! How come we never hear this one: "Illegals will commit the crimes that no one else in America wants to commit." (There is as much truth in this statement as in the "jobs" statement.) -- gunjam
