And it this not immigration as I mentioned at the beginning of this rant; it is not people who come here, at any cost, because they want to be AMERICANS, live freer lives and raise their families as proud citizens. People who work hard, make their children go to school and learn, who eagerly embrace their new country and its language beliefs and customs.
The people who come here have no obligation to be AMERICANS in the all caps manner that you understand AMERICAN to be.
The people who immigrate here have no responsibility to learn the language you speak or practice what you believe are american customs and beliefs.
What are american customs and beliefs? who decides what those are ? you?
Does the United States have a formally recognized language by law? where is that stated? I really dont know here , but if it does exist someone let me know.
The idea that the term american refers to any one specific culture or way of life is absurd , it doesnt exist.
I read through the history portion of your post and I can say that you know way more about it that I can even pretend to know.But why does the history matter? By your post it seems to be because of entitlement. I dont think mexican immigrants believe they are entitled to be here because of some fallacious understanding of history. I think they are just looking for a better life.
Why does it bother you that they are here?
Is it because you believe their very presence is a violation of law? If you visited Canada on vacation would you be a law breaker? If you decided to stay and live as a Canadian , would you be a law breaker?
Why does their wanting to live here make them illegal?
if you are upset that they dont pay taxes , should you not focus your anger at their employers?
if you dont like the fact that they send their money to Mexico , should you not have greater anger at american corporations that send thousands of jobs and money to other countries?
Bottom line here though is this. It's their money they can spend it however they like. It's crazy to look at the money mexicans send out of the country and consider it a real problem when huge corporations like GE don't pay any tax at all and major corporations hide billions in foreign banks to avoid paying back into the american taxation system.
Supposing this happened. Suppose we could make all these Immigrants legal citizens overnight. They would all have SSN's , pay into the tax system and be citizens.
Would there still be a problem?
Of course there would . You dont like them and you dont want them here. That is the problem . Plain and simple.
It's not about breaking the law , there are bigger law breakers that you are not ranting about.
It's not about freeloading and not paying taxes , their are bigger offenders here that you are not ranting about .
You just dont like them and you dont want them here.
If this assessment is wrong , then help them, help them live here legally.Help them become americans.
Otherwise , spare yourself the trouble of constructing these elaborate arguments and just state the problem for what it really is.
