My Great-Great Grandparents came to this country legally. They did things by the book; I think everyone else should have to do the same.
Are they illegal immigrants or illegal aliens? Does the changing of the last word bring about more sympathy? I think so. Is it sad that some illegals have kids and grandkids here? Yes. Should our government do something about this? Yes. Will they? Not a snowballs chance in Hell.
I have a story about an illegal alien for you. This is a first hand personal experience. The date is December 2, 2004 its 2am. I wake to the sound of my car getting hit head on in front of my house where I am LEGALLY parked. The vehicle occupants upon not being able to start their car run off down the street on foot. The occupants are one Hispanic male, one female and a baby (not in a car seat), and a 6 pack of beer. I had an eyewitness down the street who watched them run. My car is wrecked, bad. Is it fixable? Yes. Is it currently drivable? No. When the report is sent to the Hit and Run Department they find out who owns the car and where they live. They also find out that they are illegal and have no license or insurance (DUH!). Do I have any recourse? No. I can’t prosecute them and no one will hunt them down and deport them. These people have just stolen from me. Yes, I still have the car, but I can’t afford to fix it (still). Would I be in jail had I done the same thing? You bet. I know life isn’t fair, but this is just another case.
If I have to follow the law so should they. Also I’d really like for them to have the courtesy to learn English. My German family did.
The next post is from today also, please don’t miss it.
As usual it is the week before Easter and my voice will be completely gone any minute. This is a yearly occurance I could live with out. Thankfully I don't have to sing a special Sunday (I've had to change to men's songs in years past).
That is all.
