> retired border patrol agent, and it has more common sense
> than all the bull being spewed from the Senate, with the
> exception of a few sensible representatives.
> Dear Senator Frist:
> There is a huge amount of propaganda and myths circulating
> about illegal aliens, particularly illegal Mexican,
> Salvadorian, Guatemalan and Honduran aliens.
> #1. Illegal aliens generally do NOT want US citizenship.
> Americans are very vain thinking that everybody in the world
> wants to be a US citizen. Mexicans, and other nationalities
> want to remain citizens of their home countries while
> obtaining the benefits offered by the United States such as
> employment, medical care, instate tuition, government
> subsidized housing and free education for their
> offspring. Their main attraction is employment and their
> loyalty usually remains at home. They want benefits earned
> and subsidized by middle class Americans. What illegal
> aliens want are benefits of American residence without
> paying the price.
> #2. There are no jobs that Americans won't do. Illegal
> aliens are doing jobs that Americans can't take and still
> support their families. Illegal aliens take low wage jobs,
> live dozens in a single residence home, share expenses and
> send money to their home country. There are no jobs that
> Americans won't do for a decent wage.
> #3. Every person who illegally entered this nation left a
> home. They are NOT homeless and they are NOT Americans. Some
> left jobs in their home countries. They come to send money
> to their real home as evidenced by the more than 20 billion
> dollars sent out of the country each year by illegal aliens.
> These illegal aliens knowingly and willfully entered this
> nation in violation of the law and therefore assumed the
> risk of detection and deportation. Those who brought their
> alien children assumed the responsibility and risk on behalf
> of their children.
> #4. Illegal aliens are NOT critical to the economy. Illegal
> aliens constitute less than 5% of the workforce. However,
> they reduce wages and benefits for lawful US residents.
> #5. This is NOT an immigrant nation. There are 280 million
> native born Americans. While it is true that this nation was
> settled and founded by immigrants (legal immigrants), it is
> also true that there is not a nation on this planet that was
> not settled by immigrants at one time or another.
> #6. The United States is welcoming to legal immigrants.
> Illegal aliens are not immigrants by definition. The US
> accepts more lawful immigrants every year than the rest of
> the world combined.
> #7. There is no such thing as the "Hispanic vote."
> Hispanics are white, brown, black and every shade in
> between. Hispanics are Republicans, Democrats, Anarchists,
> Communists, Marxists and Independents. The so-called
> "Hispanic vote" is a myth. Pandering to illegal aliens to
> get the Hispanic vote is a dead end.
> #8. Mexico is NOT a friend of the United States . Since
> 1848 Mexicans have resented the United States . During World
> War I Mexico allowed German Spies to operate freely in
> Mexico to spy on the US . During World War II Mexico allowed
> the Axis powers to spy on the US from Mexico . During the
> Cold War Mexico allowed spies hostile to the US to operate
> freely. The attack on the Twin Towers in 2001 was cheered
> and applauded all across Mexico . Today Mexican school
> children are taught that the US stole California , Arizona ,
> New Mexico and Texas . If you don't believe it, check out
> some Mexican textbooks written
> for their school children.
> #9. Although some illegal aliens enter this country for a
> better life, there are 6 billion people on this planet. At
> least 1 billion of those live on less than one dollar a day.
> If wanting a better life is a valid excuse to break the law
> and sneak into America , then let's allow those one billion
> to come to America and we'll turn the USA into a Third World
> nation overnight. Besides, there are 280 million native born
> Americans who want a better life. I'll bet Bill Gates and
> Donald Trump want a better life. When will the USA lifeboat
> be full? Since when is wanting a better life a good reason
> to trash another nation?
> #10. There is a labor shortage in this country. This is a
> lie. There are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of
> American housewives, senior citizens, students, unemployed
> and underemployed who would gladly take jobs at a decent
> #11. It is racist to want secure borders. What is racist
> about wanting secure borders and a secure America? What is
> racist about not wanting people to sneak into America and
> steal benefits we have set aside for legal aliens, senior
> citizens, children and other legal residents? What is it
> about race that entitles people to violate our laws, steal
> identities, and take the American Dream without paying
> the price? For about four decades American politicians have
> refused to secure our borders and look after the welfare of
> middle class Americans. These politicians have been of both
> parties. A huge debt to American society has resulted. This
> debt will be satisfied and the interest will be high. There
> has already been riots in the streets by illegal aliens and
> their supporters. There will be more. You, as a politician,
> have a choice to offend the illegal aliens who have
> stolen into this country and demanded the rights afforded
> to US citizens or to offend those of us who are stakeholders
> in this country. The interest will be steep either way.
> There will be civil unrest. There will be a reckoning. Do
> you have the courage to do what is right for America ? Or,
> will you bow to the wants and needs of those who don't even
> have the right to remain here? There will be a reckoning.
> It will come in November of this year. We will not allow
> America to be stolen by third world agitators and thieves.
