Illegal Immigration; Lies and Myths & Facts

                                                     
There are any number of special interest groups who are touting the benefits of granting amnesty and citizenship for the 11 to 30 million illegals currently residing in our nation.  Democrats assume they will be favored at the polls by Hispanics grateful for the chance to make America the "new" Mexico.  Liberal Democrats figure those additional 30 million Democratic voters will solidify their hold on power in the future.  The militant Hispanic organization La Raza is hoping to achieve a populace majority and suppress "the gringo" for all time.  All true.

Then there are the 30 percent or so of Americans who sympathize with the illegal invaders; they believe all invaders are poor farm workers who are just trying to achieve a better life.  These American "innocents" do not know how much of a burden illegal Mexicans place on our social services safety net, nor do they understand how many "American" jobs are being held by illegal immigrants.  Nor do they understand how American wages are suppressed by illegals working for cash, not paying taxes, and crowding out American citizens who can no longer receive a fair wage sufficient to support their families.  All of these naive beliefs contribute to the confusion.

Fact:  According to Health and Human Services statistics over 75% of illegal immigrants are receiving some form of U.S. government assistance, whether it be WIC, Welfare, Section 8 housing and Medicaid.  HHS acknowledges that some of the aid is secured through Identity Theft but most of the benefits are being accrued through access to these benefits by their "legal" anchor baby.

Fact:  Over the last twenty years America has absorbed ten percent of Mexico's entire population.

Fact:  The majority of illegal immigrants come from Mexico's criminal class and those least educated and most poverty prone, thus placing a tremendous burden on America to solve Mexico's crime and poverty problems.

Lie:  Most of the illegal Mexican invaders are poor farm workers.

Fact:  Only 25% of illegals are doing farm work; far more are living off of America's welfare programs and community food banks.  More illegals are working in America's construction industry than those who will accept farm work.  Millions of high paying construction jobs have been lost to American citizens as wage suppression and illegal hiring has destroyed what were once well paid American jobs.

Lie:  The majority of illegals are law abiding citizens.

Fact:  According to prison statistics 50.3 percent of federal prisoners processed last year were Hispanics, most of them illegal and most of them guilty of multiple previous crimes.

Lie:  The new immigration law is tough; it will require that illegals wait for ten years to become citizens and will only be applicable to those already here.  No one will receive amnesty until the border is secure.

Fact:  The new immigration law, as reported just today, is that the Secretary of Homeland Security may deem the border "secure" of her own will, which will then trigger the citizenship process for illegals.

Fact:  The new immigration law not only applies to the 11 to 30 million currently here, but also opens the door or all illegals currently residing in the U.S. to bring in their entire extended family from Mexico.  This could allow for the further immigration of from 40 to 120 million more Mexicans.

Fact:  The only reason Republicans have embraced illegal immigration is because they assume they must capitulate to Hispanics in order to hold their seats in Congress.  

Fact:  If this new immigration law is passed we can all bid adieu to America as we knew it...and expect to live in a poverty driven third world nation with no hope for the future.

Perhaps the biggest lie is what is "not being said".  No one is thinking of the millions of immigrant candidates who have waited patiently in line, playing by the rules.  It is those very people that we want as future citizens.  Congress has told them all to go to hell and have chosen to reward the 'worst of the worst".

I am also a retired vet,, and sick to my stomach to see America going through its decay and dying. I am hispanic.. but a hispanic against illegal immigration, against free entitlements to those who got here illegally. people dont think about this,, that is sad... local and state government have incurred into huge budget deficits and the quality of life has gone south all due to this.
So called leaders, state reps, senators, etc all politicians they only see what will keep them in office. Terms should also be limited. two terms should be max. Politicians make a career out of it, rather than taking their time in office as an honorable opportunity to serve; their ultimate goals to see beyond their parties agendas and do what is right for our country.
each day, I read the news, more and more I feel like we are past the point of no return. sad. damn sad for our country, what a disappointed for our founding fathers. I wonder how many people feel our Pain.

Officer, thanks for your service. Sadly, we agree on the problem of opportunistic politicians who can see no farther than their next election. We need to throw a whole bunch of them out and start over.

One of my worst memories, was when I predicted the end of the USA during a recession in the early '80s. Our Carpenters Local had almost 400 guys on the out of work list, and we were a small local. Being a union member we were not allowed to solicit our own work, we had to be at the top of the list. A very large condominium project began and put in place the Reagan two gate system of entry to the job. That allowed for entry of non union labor. The whole job was populated by mexicans. I went to my union business agent and asked why we weren't striking that job. I was told a large contribution was made to the unions to leave that job alone. That was the end of my association with the union and the beginning of the end of my trade. Not ten years went by and you cannot find an American citizen on a California job site, disgusting. I have mexican blood in my genealogy yet find myself hating the sight of these people. It is just so sad.

Re, union labor and construction work. Ken, it's gonna get a lot worse. Glad I'm not in those trades. Hell I'm glad I'm not having to compete in the work force against "PAID IN CASH" illegal workers.

According to Pew Hispanic Research on 3% of illegals work in argiculture. Not 25%.

According to the FBI 49% of gangs are Hispanic. Many illegals in th USA are fleeing justice.

Many have already been deported several times already including ones that have caused fatal traffic accidents while drunk driving (5 times the rate of non illegals drivers)

Many have previously been be deported for sex crimes. The age of consent on Mexico is 12 in most parts of the country. And rape is a rarely prosecuted crime in Mexico. Less than 1% are ever arrested and brought to trial.

1/3 of California is comprised of illegls so I dont understand the 11million number. That is just us.

They put our state in over 25 billion dollars of debt.

They fill our emergency rooms. Regularly providing false names and stick taxpayers with the bill for everything.

If they were so good for the economy then why is Mexico such a cesspool of crime poverty and violence?

We have 30 milllion Americans out of work. They are a luxury we cant afford.

Their graduation rate from high school (despite a bilingual education) is less than 50%. Their childrens grad rates are at 56% so their chances for successs are poor.

Education is not a a central part of their culture. Less than 25% of people graduate from high school in Mexico.

Why are we importing poverty and illiteracy at a time when we can least afford It. Illegals collect $3 from taxpayers for every one dollar they contribute to the economy? Why are we Mexicos welfare program?

Illegal immigration supporters would feel differently if they googled: ambulance dumping San Diego. Mexican ambulances routinely dump sick patients in the USA so they can use our hospital system. Kidney dialysis and transplants can cost over a million per patient. Google: Georgia Dialysis illegal immigrants law suit. They sued when denied dialysis due to lack of funding.

The rich exploit them. The poor and low skilled compete with them for jobs. While the middle class subsidizes them.

A union maid in a hotel makes 45K plus benefits. Union contruction pays $25 an hr. What unemployed American wouldnt do these jobs to feed a family?

Even Caesar Chavez was against illegal immigration because it negated the United Farm Workers Union abilty to negotiate and they artificially supressed wages.

Caesars own brother worked for border patrol. FACT.

Thanks, Sara. Were everyone as informed, and as concerned as you, Congress would not be trying to cram this bill down our throat.

Sadly, most of America are zombies, followers of the superficial; the latest glee episode, the latest new music band, the latest video game, to be concerned citizens. One need only look at the voter participation polls to see how badly the quality of our citizenship has eroded.

because communist infiltrators run our government. they cant be dictator in a constitutional republic. but should our embrace of socialism collapse the system... only fascism or communism would be the result.
sacrificing millions of citizens wealth, rights and lives are seen as a means to an end.
why do you think obama want us unarmed? he wants to be the dictator. why was a narcissist chosen for president? because the world powers want freedom eliminated. we the people, and our constitution, give hope to an oppressed world. without us, we would all be like china, rights granted by the state, not God.

If the illegal immigrants are so law abiding people then why they entered illegally??? All these myths must be cleared out!!! Thanks for such a great share!!!

Deportation Case

SOme of your information is a lie... but some of it i can see as true... regardless you want proper immigration change the rules! 16 years to immigrate someone the legal way because they are from MExico is a joke and a disservice to this country! Im Mexican American I want my family here with me! I was born here have family back home! MOst want to live in Mexico but my uncle who is a communications expert can't immigrate here and has to wait 16 years? I'm a citizen i want them here! I give NO priority to the original euro invaders! we are all in this world unlike most old countries America has been forced to melt with euro, african, asian and indigenous people so this whole invader scenario you have going on is you looking at the mirror! Ignoring the simple fact that this land was taken by the europeans who funny enough only takes about 2 years to become residents!

First of all, if 40 million Mexicans hadn't invaded over the past three decades your Mexican kin might have not had to wait so long. As it is, we're full up with Mexicans...don't need another single one.

The rest of your euro-phobia will go unanswered.

Amazing. Anonymous wants something and thinks he's entitled and gives NO priority to the original euro invaders? What does he think his lineage is? If he speaks Spanish, does he think his language fell out of the sky? Unless he's pure Indian, he's just as Euro as I am.
