My Stand on Immigrants

I want to make this perfectly clear. I support legal immigrants who wish to become Americans. Almost all Americans are descendents of immigrants. That said, illegals or self-proclaimed revolutionaries who do such things as fly the flag of Mexico over an inverted American flag, claim they are here to take back what is rightfully theirs, or march under the image of Che Guevara (he's Cuban, people - not Mexican - and he's a murderer) do not belong here. You want to live under the Mexican flag then by all means do so. In Mexico. Go home. Walk, swim, or ride - I don't care.

If you want the benefits that America offers her citizens then come prepared to accept the responsibilities that go with them. Pay your taxes, obey the laws, vote, and learn the language. (The list is far longer but I want to keep this post short and sweet so those will serve my point for now.) I encourage you to honor your heritage but do not force it upon me.

To those who wish to immigrate and become Americans, welcome. For the rest who sneak over the wire, want to freeload and cause trouble, GET OUT.

For a good read from a Cuban refugee who takes offense to the latest ranting coming from the hispanic immigrants go here:
