    Illegal Immigration in terms anyone can understand!

    I'm sure this may well have been posted here before, but I searched for a few of the lines and couldn't find it. So in the off chance that it hasn't I thought everyone might get a good chuckle out of this one. I use this example to everyone I argue with over illegal immigration these days because it is the ultimate in "laymen's terms'

    Let me put illegal immigration in terms we can all understand...

    A lady wrote the best letter in the editorials that I've ever seen in my entire life. It explains things better than all the you hear on TV.

    Her point was this:

    "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 house. Let's say that when you discover me in your house, you insist that I leave.

    But I say: 'No! I like it here. It's better than my house. 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 house.)

    If we listen to the these protesters:
    1. You are required to let me stay in your house
    2. You are required to feed me
    3. You are required to add me to your family's insurance plan
    4. You are required to educate my kids
    5. 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 house 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 house.
    And what a deal it is for me!!!

    I am going live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of cold, uncaring, selfish, prejudiced, and bigoted behavior.

    Oh yeah, and I DEMAND that you learn MY LANGUAGE!!! so that you can communicate with me."

    So tell me... which part about this makes sense?

    Nice... I hate the fact that the word Illegal has lost it's meaning.

    Illegal Immigrant doesn't hold the same negative word association as Illegal Firearm.

    Back to the same old issue. No one seems to see the real issue. Those lovely bulleted 1-5 items you posted are not a requirement by you or I. They are FORCED on you and I by a ROBBING PILLAGING STEALING GOVERNMENT. There would be nothing wrong with "illegal" immigration if the government you and I support were not STEALING from us to give to everyone else. That's your real issue. Not immigration.

    It is my understanding that the current regime in Washington is doing all that they can to fix this problem by declaring that anyone here over 24 hours is now a citizen. Democrats seem to have solved that problem to the satisfaction of all new ex aliens and now citizens.

    Here's my best guess as to why they haven't stopped the illegal immigration. Think about it!

    I agree with you that our overgrown tyrannical federal government is stealing and pillaging from the people. But 'illegal immigration' is a 'real issue', is a real problem and needs to be stopped. It has nothing to do with whether the federal government has been stealing from us and infringing our our rights with new laws and regulations on a daily basis. It has to do with congress and the feds not enforcing the immigration laws that are on the books.

    Quit giving them jobs and they won't come here. Go after the employers.

    Can't, the big business employers are Republican. Think about that one for a bit. Cheap labor is good for business. And republicans are know for that free market thing right?

    FWIW, I'm registered independent, consider myself pretty conservative, and get the sneaking suspicion I'm getting squeezed by both sides, if you know what I mean. They all have skin in the game, and their all crocked. Question is which side is less crocked I guess.

    Yeah actually it does. COMPLETELY. You wouldn't have such a severe "illegal" immigration problem if they weren't being given a free ride by the feds.

    In the UK now, if you employ somebody and you dont do the paperwork correctly, you face a fine of upto £10000 GBP ($15000)

    Our Attorney General did just that and got fined £5000
