Here is another interesting perspective. Let's say I break into your home...What a great comparison. This explains things better than all the nonsensical talk you hear on TV and from the left.
Recently large demonstrations have taken place across the country protesting the fact that Congress is finally addressing the issue of illegal immigration. Certain people are angry that the US might protect its own borders, might make it harder to sneak into this country and, once here, to stay indefinitely. Let me see if I correctly understand the thinking behind these protests.
Let's say I break into your home. Let's say that when you discover me in your home, you insist that I leave. But I say, 'No! I like it here. It's better than my home'.
'I've made all the beds and washed the dishes and did the laundry and swept the floors. I've done all the things you don't like to do. I'm hard-working and honest, except for when I broke into your home'.
According to the protesters:
You are Required to let me stay in your home! You are Required to feed me! You are Required to add me to your family's insurance plan! You are Required to educate my kids! You are Required to provide other benefits to me and to my family!
'My husband will do all of your yard work because he is also hard-working and honest, except for that breaking in part'.
'If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my friends who will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my RIGHT to be there. It's only fair, after all, because you have a nicer home than I do, and I'm just trying to better myself. I'm a hard-working and honest, person, except for well, you know, I did break into your home'.
'And what a deal it is for me! I live in your home, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of being cold, uncaring, selfish, prejudiced, and bigoted'.
'Oh yeah, and I DEMAND that you learn MY LANGUAGE! So that you can communicate with me'.
Why can't people see how ridiculous this is? America is populated and has been governed by morons!
Blog Author's Comments: If one comes to the United States illegally, they should be deported immediately, back to their own country. What don't the illegal immigrants, progressives, officials of 'sanctuary cities' and liberal lawmakers understand about the word illegal? We do have laws in place to prevent this, but up until now they have been ignored by those in power.
Does anyone think that because the illegals will work hard - those that will work - deserve to stay here? The fact that they illegally entered the country is forgiven? I don't care how hard someone works, if they break into my house they deserve to be punished. In the case of my actual home – perhaps shot.
Tell you what illegals, pick another country and enter it illegally. Then try to work hard. When you get caught say to their judicial system "yes I'm here illegally, but I work hard". Send us a letter from prison telling us how wrong it is for that country to keep you there.
I think the people got the message when they elected President Donald Trump to run the country and deal with this situation. Now, if only the Republican Congress can get their asses in gear and help him.
