The Children Of Illegals Have No Business Demanding Anything


They took their protests right to the steps of Congress. Hundreds of students, including ten from Georgia, lobbied at the nation’s capitol for “The Dream Act,” which offers undocumented students a chance to become legal citizens.

I contend we don’t need “Immigration Reform” but “Enforcement Reform”, meaning the federal government should do its job and enforce the existing laws on the books. However, the children of illegal aliens believe they should get a pass because they didn’t do anything wrong.

Here’s my analogy on this situation….

Let’s say one day a family wakes up to the sound of the front door of their home being bashed in. The father is handcuffed and escorted out of the home by federal law enforcement officials and is audibly charged with embezzlement. The family is told they have five minutes to gather their most personal belongings and then vacate the premises because their home and automobile is being seized because stolen money is believed to have purchased said assets.

The family soon finds out their bank accounts have been frozen because they too may contain monies as a result of the father’s possible theft.

Who should the family be mad at: the federal government that arrested the father of theft or the father for putting the family in the precarious position they find themselves in now? I suspect the wife would be rightfully furious with the husband, as would be the kids. But when it comes to parents who knowingly violated our sovereign border, no blame is being issued to them by their children. No, it’s the federal government’s fault for not letting those kids have their way and let them operate freely in a country they are in illegally.

For this reason (as lacking in compassion as is sounds) I have no sympathy for the offspring of illegal aliens who are being denied in-state tuition for colleges, or admittance at all. They have no business protesting a college, state legislature, our congress or citizenry of a state or the nation. If anything, these kids should demand their parents explain why they decided to break the law and hide out for decades knowing it could hurt them in the long run.

The federal government wouldn’t drop the charges against an embezzler because it would inconvenience his or her family.

Illegal aliens aren’t deserving of amnesty and their kids are in no position to make demands.

    Wow! I must have missed this previous post. Good analogy.

    For this reason (as lacking in compassion as is sounds) …

    Compassion cannot be demanded.

    BRFan, what I hear from (sensible) legal experts is that the 14th Amendment doesn’t even apply to those whose parents slipped into the country illegally, because of the “under the jurisdiction” clause. Apparently it’s never been tested in court.

    What needs to be done to to repeal both the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, which Ted Kennedy heavily endorsed and either repeal or modify the 14th Amendment. That amendment was written with former American slaves in mind but of course like everything else with the left, they corrupted it to suit their purpose.

    Worth repeating . . .

    “In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language.. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

    Barack Obama says that illegal aliens should have to “go to the back to the line.”

    The problem is that once some gets onto American soil, they’ve basically cut to the front of the line.

    Illegal aliens should be required to go to the back of the line, which is back in their home countries.

    Remember the petition banning “dihydrogen monoxide” (water) Penn & Teller had people sign at a environmental rally? Lots of folks signed it simply b/c they gave no thought to banning something. It was more about following the crowd rather than putting actual thought into it. This is similar b/c people have no clue about what they’re protesting – they’re just a group of lemmings following the crowd. If these “no-brains” (thanx, unohombre) would give what they’re doing 5 minutes of thought, they would get down on their knees, kiss the ground and thank God they are able to do what they’re doing here, and try to get legal and become an American. Moreover, they should go back to their own home country and demand their corrupt leaders in Mexico do something to benefit their people, like . . . perhaps. . . . oh, something really complicated, like MAKING CLEAN DRINKING WATER. The leaders of their own country can’t even produce clean water – shouldn’t these people be demanding something basic like that?

    I would think these rallies would produce a bevy of illegals to arrest, perhaps like picking up ducks in a kiddy pool. Shouldn’t ICE have a huge presence there?

    Integration does not work when people insist on division by incidental features or promoting their special interests at the expense of others. It only breeds resentment, and, eventually, people will reconsider their own interests in light of a failed experiment.

    America still represents the best opportunity for a successful experiment where people are treated equally before the law, and have the same Creator-given rights. However, the divisions are growing, and there are groups who would prefer for it to fail, so that they can reap the rewards of their new found positions of power and unearned entitlement.

    defacto slaves

    As progressive involuntary exploitation advances, along with progressive totalitarianism, we all become de facto slaves. Of course, it is everyone’s choice; but, with a majority of Americans in opposition, there can only be one conclusion. For now, the means remains political and within the rule of law.

    Frankly, this conversation would be more interesting, and productive, if liberals/progressives would fully specify just how far left they intend to drag us. The progressive nature of their “reform” implies that there is no limit. There is no individual of dignity who would willingly submit to unlimited coercion. That should not be an acceptable compromise. This uncertainty, and open-ended totalitarianism, will only ensure the eventual collapse of civilized society.

    hmm..maybe “killer” isn’t the correct word, maybe “funny” or “interesting” would be more appropos

  10. Nicolas

    I’d love to hear the reaction to your piece here, Bob, from say, Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, and the like. that would be killer

  11. ecotim

    How about this, go to any other country and try to do the same. No tolerance there. Even in Mexico, you not here legally? Here is a go straight to jail card.

    Why doe it happen here? Because the left and the rest want to destroy the biggest free place in the world. Once this country is destroyed slavery will be back in full.

    They already make these illegals as defacto slaves.

  12. n.n

    Tens of millions served by government’s waste, fraud, and abuse. The bureaucratic and private sector profiteers will not like your analogy, Bob. They have, after all, enabled this invasion, and its ensuing rape and pillage legacy. What would happen to “jobs saved and created”, once their customers and conspirators are deported or imprisoned? There would be jobs lost and relegated. This would not bode well for progressive involuntary exploitation, and there would be diminished cover for progressive totalitarianism. Not to mention the hit against Democratic and union rolls. Do you think creation of dead, fictitious, and duplicate voters is easy? Not nearly so easy as importing illegal aliens to do the work that liberals/progressives are unwilling to do.

  13. Fuzzlenutter

    Nice analogy, Bob. Although it will never get through to these people.

    Maybe I’m just in a piss-poor mood right now, but I think we’ve lost on this. I also have a sinking feeling that the Republican Party will once snatch defeat from the jaws of victory once again this November…

    Ya know, if I were the child of an illegal immigrant and was pissed about a law being passed against me an my family living here without authorization, I wouldn’t put up with that shit. I’d leave.

  15. bellefleur

    With those flags, they’re acting exactly like the conquering army of a foreign power, and should be treated as such.

    Or maybe they think the Mexican flag represents a race–in which case they’re underscoring the fundamental racism of Mexico.

  16. TexRex

    I agree with Unohombre. Always with the Mexican flag while demanding American Rights. All I see is a Target Rich Environment.

    The Brain of an Illegal: They carry Mexican flags while demanding special rights from America. One plus one equals three.
