Illegal Immigration.. a huge political and social problem that plagues many countries. This thread is dedicated to thoughts on this issue, and how we can best solve this problem.
As an American, no a Texan, I have experienced the affects of illegal immigration. Some people do not think it's such a big deal, but I beg to differ. For one, there are millions of illegals (mostly mexican) living in our country today. These people unlawfully cross into our borders.. and the liberals grant them all kinds of special rights. It seems like once they arrive then it's like paradise. Illegals get all kinds of government aid yet they contribute nothing to society. These people are not protected by our constitution and cannot vote, so why are politicians having such a hard time kicking them out?? The illegal mexicans mostly consist of the poor, uneducated portion of the mexican population. They run across our borders with nothing.. not even knowledge of the english language.. then they expect us to provide them with shelter, clothing, an education, health care, etc. Why the hell should we, the American taxpayers, pay for these criminals? It's wrong!
I'm not sure how it is in other countries, but I am sick and tired of having a bunch of low-life criminals enter our country so easily. They are ultimately a strain on our economy and education systems.. they are nothing more than viruses.. viruses that affect our country, and our own politicians wont even stand-up for us! They demand the use of public services (police, firefighters, recreation, etc.) yet they pay no taxes themselves. They cannot be denied into the ER, and thus receive free health care even though they have no insurance. Some politicians complain that the current immigration bill is too strong? Too strong?! Hell, it's way too weak. I believe we need to just throw them all out. They are here illegally! They take our money, services, and time.. yet they don't repay us at all.
Also, I hate going places and seeing spanish all over the damn place.. Why do we give-in, and write things in spanish instead of forcing them to learn English? This is the United States of America, and our language is English! If you can't speak English, then you shouldn't be allowed to become a permanent resident.. I am also tired of seeing mexicans parading about talking about how much better mexico is than America.. If you like it so damn much, then get the hell out of here!!
A short story: My friend's mom was driving home from work when a van hit her from behind. It was a van full of 7-8 illegal mexicans who didn't have drivers license. After the wreck, they all took off running.. a few bystanders helped her track them down, and they called the authorities. However, the police said that there was nothing that they could since they were illegals.. So what happened? The police let the mexicans walk away, and my friend's mom had to pay for the damages herself.
