Illegal Aliens

This was forwarded to me via email today. I agree wholeheartedly with it.
A retired border patrol agent’s letter:
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 U.S. citizenship. Americans are very vain thinking that everybody in the world wants to be a U.S. 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, in-state 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, using the beds 24/7, 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 U.S. 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 U.S. 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 U.S. During World War II Mexico allowed the Axis powers to spy on the U.S. from Mexico. During the Cold War Mexico allowed spies hostile to the U.S. 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 U.S. stole California, Arizona, new Mexico and Texas. If you don’t believe it, check out some Mexican textbooks written for their schoolchildren.
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 wage.
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 U.S. 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, again in 2008 and yet again in 2010.
We will not allow America to be stolen by third world agitators and thieves.

6 throughts on "Illegal Aliens"

  1. i respectfully diasagree with one statement. we DID steal those states from mexico. the mexicans considered them part of their territory, and we decided we wanted them. So we took them. That’s my definition of stealing. i don’t know what yours is.

  2. Very true. I still agree with the great majority of the email, but as a nation we were VERY agressive in expanding and Mexico is not the only country that we did it too. Arguments can be made both ways as far as that is concerned I suppose.

  3. Hello,
    My name is Don Pratt and I am a Director of Alamo Alliance. I am sending this email to various groups and people around the country in the hopes of collecting signatures of American citizens who oppose this destructive and unfair blanket amnesty bill for illegal aliens. Please join us and hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions of other Americans as we voice our opposition to this destructive and unfair Senate Amnesty Bill, S.2611. Please spread the word by sending this to everyone you can! We don’t have much time! You can view and sign the petition at our site
    Thank you,

  4. Jenni & Richard,
    I suggest that you do a little research. We (the US) paid for those territories that we got from Mexico. And Texas was already an independent state and joined the US of it own accord after Mexico attacked. Remember the Alamo?

  5. Texas was a province of Spain from 1690 up until 1821. From 1821-1835 Mexico claimed it as part of it’s country. Of course that doesn’t give it any more right than we had, as of course Texas declared independence in December 1835.
    We didn’t actually annex the state until 1845, and the main reason that they did it was because Texas owed the a boatload of money. The US government agreed to assume the debt upon annexation. We also received several pieces of territory claimed by Texas during annexation including parts of Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico.
    The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was the result of the Mexican-American war that ended in 1848. We picked up most of the Southwestern United States at that point. The rest of it was purchased in 1853.
    Just because we paid for something doesn’t mean that we didn’t steal it. Nor does it give Mexico the right to say we did. Don’t know, I wasn’t there. We were pretty agressive in our annexation of different parts of our country, which was a good thing considering that we had several different countries claiming parts of what is no the United States. Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Russia, France, all claimed portions of the US at one point or another.
