I broke into your house

I broke into your house

Sometimes the media and government officials confuse people with their mumbo jumbo. Don’t let anyone convince you that the Arizona immigration law has to do with profiling. Police officers are not allowed to pull people over just because they look Hispanic. Arizona is only enforcing the Federal immigration laws that the Federal government will not enforce.

Here’s the best letter in the Editorials in ages. It explains things better than all the baloney you hear on TV.
Her point: Recently, large demonstrations have taken place across the country protesting the fact that Congress
is finally addressing the issue of illegal immigration.

Certain people are angry that the US might protect its own borders, might make it harder to sneak into this country and, once here, to stay indefinitely.
Let me see if I correctly understand the thinking behind these protests.
Let’s say I break into your house.
Let’s say that when you discover me in your house, you insist that I leave.
But I say, No! I like it here. It’s better than my house. I’ve made all the beds and washed the dishes and did the laundry and swept the floors. I’ve done all the things you don’t like to do. I’m hard-working and honest (except for when I broke into your house).

According to the protesters:
You are required to let me stay in your house
You are required to feed me
You are required to add me to your family’s insurance plan
You are required to educate my kids
You are required to provide other benefits to me & to my family

My husband will do all your yard work because he is also hard-working and honest (except for that breaking in part).

If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my friends, who will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my RIGHT to be there.

It’s only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than I do, and I’m just trying to better myself. I’m a hard-working and honest, person, except for well, you know, I did break into your house.
And what a deal it is for me! I live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of cold, uncaring, selfish, prejudiced, and bigoted behavior.

Oh yeah, and I DEMAND that you learn MY LANGUAGE so that you can communicate with me.

Why can’t people see how ridiculous this is?!
America is populated and governed by idiots.


One thought on “I broke into your house

  1. I’d never seen anyone address the problem in just that way, but it makes sense.

    Thanks for this post.
