Why Should Illegals Desire For Legal Status Be Priority For Us?

Over at The Corner Andy McCarthy asks a basic question about the Bush Administration's position on immigration: why should we go out of our way to urgently help illegal aliens gain legal status?

And, not to beat a dead horse, but Mr. Thompson's response does not address my main point:  Why is the illegal status of people who've chosen that status by knowingly and wilfully violating U.S. law our problem?  I don't see how that, as opposed to enforcement, is a crisis.  It's understandably a matter of great importance to the illegal aliens, but why should the rest of us regard it as a problem, much less a priority?  And if it were, for argument's sake, a crisis, then the first question ought to be:  How and why did we let such a crisis happen?

Note to Andy: You let the crisis happen by letting some groups push government policies in directions against the national interest. These groups include corporate interests seeking cheap labor, Hispanic lobbyists, and Democrat operatives looking for votes

We can solve the illegal immigration crisis with real and sustained enforcement of US immigration laws. The Bush Administration's move toward greater enforcement has been slow and tentative. Bush clearly does not have his heart in greater enforcement. Well, that's what the American people want. Why should we cater to the elites and the illegals? Clearly the elites should cater to us and the illegals should leave. Stop breaking our laws. Get out of our country.

Amen. The last thing we need is 12-25 million people with an average IQ of 90 who are resentful and hateful on top of it (side note: I doubt the average IQ of Latin American illegals is even 90). Screw these losers. Moreover, screw the people who hire them, want votes from them, and most of all, those who admire "hard-working" illegals. Those who glorify illegals are the worst. There is nothing admirable about somebody breaking the law, having 4 kids who are high school dropouts, making mimimum wage their whole lives, living in a sh**hole, crime-ridden neighborhood, and likely becoming morbidly obese (yuck).

Also, who says we can't deport illegals? If they can't get jobs (b/c anyone who hires an illegal goes to jail and/or goes broke from fines and seizures) and they can't get taxpayer funded benefits, do you really think many will stay, much less keep coming in?

well lets see what the United States Declaration of Independence says .
Sometimes the people of a country do not want to live in that country any more. Sometimes these people want to make their land into a new country, that is not a part of the old country they lived in before. When people want to do this, they have to say why they want to do it. In this paper, I will say why the people of America want to make a new country. I will say why they do not want to be part of Great Britain any more.

All people are equal.HELLO/ God wants every person to have rights YES WRIGTS/(life,YEP freedom,YEP and happiness YEP). Sometimes bad people try to take away the rights (life, freedom, and happiness) of other people. People make a government so that their rights (life, freedom, and happiness) will be safe. The job of the government is to protect the rights of the people. A government is good when it does this. Also, the government must do what the people say, because the people made the government. When the government does what the people say, it is called a democracy.

Sometimes a government is bad. Sometimes the government does not protect the rights of the people.HELLO HAVE YOU HEARD OF FIDEL CASTRO ?JUST CHEKING/ When this happens, the people have to stop the government. Then they have to make a new government, a good government, that will protect their rights.

BEFORE SAYING ALL THOSE HATEFULL THIGS DO YOU REALLY KNOW YOUR HISTORY? HOW YOUR COUNTRY WAS FORMED? THAT MAN ARE EQUAL?IT DID NOT SAY ONLY PEOPLE THAT ARE BORN IN THIS SIDE OF THE WORLS ARE EQUAL OR THE ILLIGALS ARE NOT HUMAN AND NEED TO SUFER BECOSE … THEY CAME WITHOUT INSPECTION ……. DEAR FRENDS WHO INSPECTE CRISTOFOR COLOMBUS THE AMERICAN IDIANS? SHOUL HE HAD BEEN SEND HOME TO THAT CRUEL BRITAN KING BECOSE THE INS DID NOT INSPECT HIM??? THIS MY “FRIENDS ARE QUESTION YOU NEED TO ASK YOUR SELF WHICH COUNTRY YOU ARE TOLKING ABOUT BECOSE IS NOT AMERICA, AND IT’S VALUES AND "IN GOD WE TRUST" THAT IS STAMP ON THE DOLLAR BILLS, SO THIS ARE A FEW QUESTION YOU NEED TO HAVE IN MIND BEFORE YOU SPEAK FOR ANOTHER HUMANG BEING, THAT GOD CREATED, YES THE SAME GOD THAT CREATED YOU AND ME .. IF YOU BELIVE IN GOD AND THE GOLDEN RULE... BUT IF YOU ARE AN ATHIES THEN THAT’S A DIFFERENT STORRY I WILL PARY FOR YOU BECOSE THA’T WHAT HUMAN BEINGS DO … JUST IN CASE YOU FORGAT YOU ARE ONE//////???????
