Let's say I break into your house...

I apologize if this is a repost, but I just read it on another forum, and WOW... just wow.

Now, someone please pass the popcorn, cus this could get interesting....

Quote:
"Let's say I break into your house"

A lady wrote the best letter in the Editorials in ages!!! It explains things better than all the baloney you hear on TV.

Her point:

Recently large demonstrations have taken place across the country protesting the fact that Congress is finally address 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, "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).

According to the protesters:

You are Required to let me stay in your house
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 & 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 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, I DEMAND that you learn MY LANGUAGE!!! so you can
communicate with me.

Why can't people see how ridiculous this is?! Only in America
if you agree, pass it on (in English). Share it if you see the value of it.

If not blow it off.........
along with your future Social Security
funds, and a lot of other things.

BTW, it is estimated that each illegal alien costs the US an average of $ 21,000 annually.

I dunno... a guy on another forum re-posted it. From the sounds of it, it was published in the editorial section of a newspaper, and now it's circulating via email. But I don't have the author's name.

Either way, it's excellent.

Yeah, cus we Americans always follow all the rules, too, right?

(not saying I disagree with you, just saying that of any major civilized country, we as Americans are probably the most apt to 'break the rules...' )

All for keeping illegals out of country.
But lets face it, if employers did not hire illegals you would not have illegal immigration problem
Cost figure is misleading. Are you ready to pay $5 for head of lettuce or extra $$ for your steaks? $500 extra for your new roof? Illegals keep costs down, its two sided sword

No offense (well, maybe yes, offense), but for once, you've actually made an intelligent post.

Sometimes you can be a good guy, but you know as well as everyone else that sometimes you post crap JUST to piss people off and you seem to ENJOY pissing people off so much that many of your posts come off as ignorant.

Hey we stole this land fair and square...

I agree its a two sided sword- I would rather keep the illegals that are willing to work then the American welfare mongers looking for freebies. But welfare reform is a whole other issue.
