Another Reason California Is In the Toilet

This should come as no surprise:

(AP) SACRAMENTO California's state senators on Thursday endorsed Monday's boycott of schools, jobs and stores by illegal immigrants and their allies as supporters equated the protest with great social movements in American history.

By a 24-13 vote that split along party lines, the California Senate approved a resolution that calls the one-day protest the Great American Boycott 2006 and describes it as an attempt to educate Americans "about the tremendous contribution immigrants make on a daily basis to our society and economy."

The word missing in the above statement is ILLEGAL. But why let pesky details get in the way of sucking up to potential voters?

Illegal aliens and their supporters may think they are indispensible to our economy, but that's not necessarily the case. From the Center for Immigration Studies:

It is often suggested that "matching a willing worker with a willing employer" is all that matters when it comes to immigration policy. The fiscal costs of illegal immigration indicate that focusing only on workers and employers is grossly inadequate. If the presence of large numbers of unskilled workers lowers prices for some goods and services, but at the same time increases the burden on taxpayers, then this may not be a good deal for the country. Put simply, the mere fact that employers want more workers, and foreigners wish to work in this country, does not mean that Americans necessarily benefit from their coming. This fact must be considered when formulating policy.

Again, why let pesky details get in the way? Do they really think they'll close our cities for a day? I doubt it. We'll see who's right on Monday.

If we were in the toilet, it would be an improvement; we're completely down the drain and headed for sewage plant. It's a !%&# shame.

I used to live in California (Northern for 1-1/2 years 2 different times and Southern for about 18 years) and those people just aren't right. I moved back to Ohio in 1994 and have NEVER been sorry that I did so!

The illegals (and they are EVERYWHERE) are rude, frequently lawless. Even the 2nd or 3rd generation Mexicans that I met did not consider themselves Americans and still spoke with heavy Hispanic accents (though they were born here - what's up with that).

Our nation is being invaded and we're doing nothing about it.

The protest wasn't a completely unified statement of any particular cause. It was basically to show that there are great numbers of people who don't swell up with hatred and resentment, such as what is quite common in America today.

The protest wasn't to establish that illegal immigration should be tolerated or made legal, it was to show a unified front.

There is such deeply rooted prejudism against mexicans, and people are quick to judge folks they don't even know. Many americans think that they are better than the lowly illegal immigrants. The protest was a backlash against that sentiment, and to fight for fairness in immigration policy.

Try putting your computer to good use and doing some research. Find out what it takes to become a US citizen. Find the real specific details required of an immigrant. Put yourself in someone else's shoes and think aobut what you would do if you were poor, and needed to provide for your family. Would you be worried about political borders, or preserving the rich man's way of life, or would you be a good provider and do everything in your power to help feed and shelter your family?

It's easy to say "I have mine, let them worry abou theirs" when you are the one with the wealth and luxuries of even the lower middle class american. But that isn't christian, and it isn't friendly. It is a feeling of prejudism fueled by hatred and resentment.

There are more positive ways to protect and preserve our great country. Be humble, have compassion, have an open mind, try working together for a solution.

Separatist methods always lead to segregation.
