we also need a mechanism to admit those workers we want; we need to regularize undocumented workers already in our midst…
(In other words, we insist on keeping our cheap workers).
This immigration reform, more correctly termed "amnesty" is just another justification for pushing the housing, medical and educational costs of illegal aliens on the taxpayers while businesses increase their profits. The elites who want this bill passed won't be in the public hospitals competing against immigrants for medical care, their gated communities will only see the results of immigration through their nannies and gardeners. They certainly won't have their children receiving an education in public schools that are spending more time on Spanish speaking children and less time on the education children whose parents obey the law and are paying the bills for these social giveaways . The elites don't see the impact of this runaway illegal immigration and their lives won't be altered by this amnesty. It's the average American who will see their way of life destroyed by secret deals behind closed doors.
I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it with seed. Within a week we had hundreds of birds taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and easily accessible food. But then the birds started building nests …some of the birds turned mean… others birds were boisterous and loud: They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill it when it got low on food.
After a while, I couldn't even sit on my own back porch anymore. I took down the bird feeder and in three days the birds were gone.
Now let's see ... our government gives out free food, subsidized housing, free medical care, free education and allows anyone born here to be an automatic citizen. Then the illegal’s came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments are housing 5 families: you have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an emergency room doctor: your child's 2nd grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn't speak English. Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to press "one" to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people waving flags other than "Old Glory" are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties. Maybe it's time for the government to take down the bird feeder and clean up the mess.
(This is a classic piece of satire which deserves to be read in full.)
With ordinary citizens of this quality reaching for their intellectual weapons, I wonder if the Inside the Beltway crowd realizes what it is unleashing.
