Viva La Raza

You’ve got to be kidding me. Watching the news last night, Nick and I stared, dumbfounded, at a mockery of a protest. Dallas ISD students were “protesting” the a Texas House and Senate resolution promoting support of an immigration bill under consideration in the US House and Senate.

For two days now, Hispanic students in the DISD have walked out of school. They’ve marched on City Hall. Students walked from their schools and were hanging out of cars. Brilliant. An SUV full of teens joyriding driving in a vehicle to the protest were in an accident and a girl’s hand was severed. The march itself isn’t what I’m calling a mockery. It’s their actions while there. News cameras showed them hoopin’ and hollerin’, running up and down the stairs in City Hall and wading and splashing in the fountain in front of City Hall. What started as a protest turned into a free-for-all day to skip school and play to the cameras.

We are not criminals. I beg to differ. If you come to the United States illegally, you broke our law. If you came to the United States on a visa and then stayed past when you were allowed, you broke our law. If you bring your family with you and grandma doesn’t have a visa, but you do, grandma broke our law. If you work without the proper documentation to work in this country, you broke our law. Breaking a law makes you a criminal. You, young lady, might not be a criminal, but those in this country illegally, working illegally, and using services they’re not paying for, are criminals.

If the Italians wanted to come, you’d welcome them with open arms. Actually, if millions of Italians were to come to the US illegally, I think I’d feel the same way. First of all, use an intelligent arguement. Second of all, I don’t think you could present me with an arguement that could convince me that allowing anyone and everyone into my country with no thought to whether or not they should be there is a good thing. More than 11 million illegals (not just Hispanics mind you) being educated by my tax dollars, receiving medical treatment paid for with my tax dollars, living off my tax dollars…yeah, I’m good with that. Not.

There is a legal method of entry into the US. Use it. If you get in, great. If you don’t and you come anyway, I’m going to send you back home and I’m not going to let you come back.
