Wrong about the "vigilante"
By Erni Grace
May 20 2006
Neil Gray is wrong about the "vigilante" groups he
is talking about. If he is referring to the Minutemen then he
is wrong about them. I'm grateful that the Minutemen are at
least doing this for the American citizenry since our government
won't. Liberals, leftists, and democrats, and our own President
try and paint a bad picture of them calling them vigilantes.
All prior Administrations, both Republican and Democrat, including
this one have shut their eyes to the illegal migration but have
chosen to support their donors and those who counted on legal
AND illegal votes to get into office. The silent majority has
spoken and they don't have to march the streets for this. The
only reason Washington is trembling on its feet is because the
silent majority has put them on alert. They either do the job
they were elected to do or else find another job come elections...
any of them.
The masses of illegals protesting
on the streets demanding rights they don't have here scares me
because all I can see on the streets is a big sign with WELFARE
on it. If the illegals are rewarded with amnesty most will quickly
qualify for welfare, housing, food stamps, free lunches and free
medical. Why? Because the majority of them are the poorest
of the poor of their country of origin, are illiterate, unskilled
and uneducated and will, for most of their lives, make minimum
or low wages and after sending their money to their country of
origin to support their large families, many of them will be
lining up for welfare along with the relatives they are allowed
to bring in with them. I'm looking at what's been lurking in
the background behind the large picture of illegal migration.
I don't begrudge any one wanting a better life. But there are
those who want to become Americans and are willing to wait years
for their papers. Illegals knew before they crossed the borders
what the consequences would be and have no one but themselves
to blame. I say stop the bleeding now until it heals and then
allow a certain number to come in the legal way. I teach my
children to obey laws, don't cut in front of people standing
in line and most of all obey the laws of this country.
