Illegal immigration or invasion?

Is it a illegal immigration problem or is it an invasion:? Is it about racism or is it about breaking the law;?

No real suggestions have been given from Washington, D.C., or state capitols so far  that will work in getting the invaders out of the states. How do you remove 10-12 million people? How do you replace them in the workforce? It is a difficult issue; we need to solve the problem and quit letting illegals into our country now, unless they come in the proper way.

It is not racist to call these people “illegal aliens.” In fact ‘illegal aliens” is the only term used in federal laws and regulations to describe criminals. And they are criminals who came into this country illegally. They are not illegal immigrants, not undocumented immigrants (have you seen some of the fake documents they can obtain?) not migrant workers and not day laborer; they’re illegal aliens.

Mexico is not a poor country. It has the fifth richest economy in the world, and by sending it’s teeming masses to our country, that status keeps on rising. Mexico has more resources per square mile than the U.S. and plenty of money to take care of its own people. Why should the taxpayers of this country subsidize Mexico’s corruption?

Illegal aliens are not necessarily coming here to work. It is reported that 33 percent of our prison population is now comprised of non-citizens. Plus 36 to 42 percent of illegal aliens are on welfare. So, for a good portion of these people, the American dream is crime and welfare, not coming here to work.

Illegal aliens are not doing work Americans won’t do. What jobs won’t Americans do? Most Americans still clean their own homes, do their own landscaping, clean hotels, work in restaurants and fast-food places, paint houses, do construction work, work in airports, etc. — just like we have done for over 200 years before our government allowed these people to invade our country.

There are 18 million Americans who can’t find a job, so illegal aliens who come here to work do so at peril to American workers.

Illegal aliens absolutely do not contribute more than they cost. Certainly the thousands in prison and on welfare aren’t contributing a dime to our economy, and the ones who are working often are paid in cash with no deductions for taxes at all.

The ones who use fraudulent social security numbers and qualify to pay taxes and social security have so many dependents that they pay little if any taxes. We have seen them pay less than $100 in taxes and get back $4,000 refunds (thanks to earned-income-tax credits and multiple dependents).

The Center for Immigration Studies estimates that the average Mexican illegal alien costs U.S. taxpayers a whopping $55,000 each. Some bargain, eh?

Without illegal aliens, the price of agricultural products and other goods and services will not soar. The definitive study on the subject is the University of Iowa’s “How Much Is That Tomato?/Tomatoe?

The study concludes that since labor is such a small component of the end-price of agricultural products, which includes price to the growers, transportation costs, processing/storage costs, grocers’ profits, etc., using minimum wage workers instead of illegal aliens would increase prices of agricultural products by approximately 3 percent in the summer and 4 percent in the winter … hardly the making of $10 heads of lettuce, $25 hamburgers and $1,000 per night at Days Inn hotel rooms like the pro-alien lobby claims.

Consumers are not benefiting from lower labor costs. Again it’s CEOs and business owners who benefit from taxpayers subsidies for their illegal alien workers. The Big Three automakers say they moved so many jobs to Mexico because their labor costs are 80 percent less than in America. Anybody notice the price of new cars spiraling downward under NAFTA?

Jose Angel Gutierrez, professor at The University of Texas, Arlington, and founder of La Razza political party screamed at a rally “We have an aging white America. They are dying. They are ##### in their pants with fear.

I love it. We have to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is, if worst comes to worst, we have to kill him.”

The national newspaper of Mexico, Excelsior, wrote: “The American Southwest seems to be slowly returning to the jurisdiction of Mexico without firing a shot.”

Richard Alatorre, Los Angeles City Council, said, “They are afraid that we’re going to take over the governmental institutions and other institutions. They are right. We will take them over.”

Mario Obledo, California secretary of Health, Education and Welfare, under Gov. Jerry Brown, and who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Bill Clinton, says. “California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn’t like it should leave.”

Jose Pescador Osuna, Mexican consul general said, “We are practicing ‘La Reconquista’ in California.” “ Reconquista” means the reconquest of the southwest and California by Mexico.

(These people are serious.

They think that they can take back U.S. territory. The Mexican President declared it here in our country and Bill Clinton signed a Presidential Executive Order that paves the way for at least a part of Mexico’s dream.)

Executive Order 13122, signed on May 25, 1999, by the most treasonous president this country has ever been cursed with, Bill Clinton, established an Interagency Task Force on the Economic Development of the Southwest Border region, which is defined as including the areas up to 150 miles north of the United States-Mexican border in the states of Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and California.”  

According to experts on international law, this sets the stage for a 150-mile wide ‘Border Zone” that will neither belong to the U.S. or Mexico. This would then become the first area of a Hispanic Nation that would eventually encompass the states mentioned above. The name proposed for this new land is Republica del Norte “The Northern Republic.”  

I suggest to you that we don’t have a immigration problem in any sense of the word “illegal immigration,” but that we have been invaded by criminals.
