The tone of the discussion has been set by the choice of terms. By casting aliens in the United States as “illegal immigrants” it gives the imprint of immigrants to someone in the United States who is breaking the law. It is like calling an armed robber, an illegal customer.
If we are going to decide that only some laws have to be uniformly applied, can we pick and choose which laws we have to obey? I thought not.
Felipe Ramirez and Yeni Bentiz get it all wrong when quoted today.
Felipe Ramirez says “The irony of that statue [the Statue of Liberty], is that those poor and huddled masses are exactly the people who they don’t want to come. … there is a lot of xenophobia in the heartland, in the south.” Felipe, I hate to burst your bubble, but poor huddled masses are perfectly welcome. It is LAW-BREAKING people that are not welcome. People who are willing to follow the LAW, they are more than welcome, the law-breaking, illegals are NOT.
For Felipe Ramirez, it must be a difficult concept to understand, the United States is a nation of laws. It is the foundation of society.
There are some general features of a socialist enterprise, whether it be the Post Office, schools, or the war on drugs. The enterprise is inefficient, expensive, very advantageous to a small group of people, and harmful to alot of people. ` Milton Friedman
The definition of IRONY:
U.N. Elects Iran to Commission on Women’s Rights … “handing a four-year seat on the influential human rights body to a theocratic state in which stoning is enshrined in law and lashings are required for women judged ‘immodest.'”
Mexican law makes it a felony to be an illegal alien in Mexico. Perhaps we should apply them here, see the full article:
You have to wonder about Charlie Crist’s character when he and his campaign have made it perfectly clear he would only run as a Republican (see video below) and yet today he is reportedly stating he’ll run under “no party affiliation.” Liar, opportunist, hopefully, FORMER Governor and politicians. Crist is clearly an opportunist with no guiding principles.
Obama: “I Do Think At A Certain Point You’ve Made Enough Money”
Attention Big Democrat supporters, stop being hypocrites, “at a certain point you’ve made enough money,” so give it away now:
Obama made $5 million in 2009
Oprah Winfrey, $100 million deal
George Soros, $12-14 Billion in net worth (Forbes)
Warren Buffett, $37 Billion net worth
Bill Gates, $40 Billion net worth
Love the headline “Illegal Immigrants plan to leave over Ariz law” (http://apnews.myway.com/article/20100429/D9FCDCN00.html)
Who knew that just PASSING A LAW would get people ALREADY BREAKING THE LAW TO LEAVE! Why are they obeying one law and not the Federal law? Oh, perhaps it is INCONVENIENT for them to break one law and not the other?
It is about time that someone says, “YOU ARE BREAKING THE LAW. LEAVE, FILL OUT THE REQUIRED PAPERWORK AND IF YOU MEET THE QUALIFICATIONS YOU CAN COME BACK!” Oh, and by the way, in the United States, we speak English. I’ll also say that the Federal Government shouldn’t expect companies to be their immigration agents for them. Do the job of protecting the borders and don’t pawn off your job on someone else.
