The shame and embarrassment this society is facing is that we allowed illegal immigration to metastasize into its current crisis.
Illegal immigration is an out-of-control disaster where a democratic society allowed a relentless flood of illegal immigrants to contravene its laws ; violate its borders; overwhelm its infrastructures and social systems; diminish employment possibilities for its indigenous uneducated and poor; and degrade its way of life
The inscription at the base of the Statute of Liberty concludes, "I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" It says nothing about welcoming people who bypass our entry doors by climbing walls, swimming rivers and sneaking under or over border fences.
Stop aiding illegal aliens who break the law. Give your loyalty to your country and to your fellow citizens, not to foreigners and foreign interests.
The legal citizens of this country need to rally and demand the enforcement of our current immigration laws to protect our borders from those who desire to violate the law by entering the country illegally.
Let us not become confused by current sophistry used to excuse the breaking and entering and staying illegally in the United States. Equating this issue with "civil rights" and a "modern-day trail of tears" is yet another sordid effort by the left to convince people that the United States is being unfair in its policies of immigration.
The message that we ought to feel guilty about any problems experienced by people who freely choose to ignore our immigration regulations and enter illegally is nonsense.
If we have the intestinal fortitude to enforce immigration laws, then any future illegal alien rallies in Washington, D.C., and New York ought to be attended by I.C.E. agents with orders to round up all illegal aliens in the vicinity. That would send a message to "undocumented" individuals that we in this country are serious about the idea of following the rule of law and resent having non-citizens demanding rights inconsistent with their illegal status.
