The (illegal) Immigration Issue

The “immigration” issue pops up again & again.  Every few months they trot out another Senate Bill or House Bill, calling it something different but having the same provisions.  Essentially, we all know they are trying to ‘legalize’ either all or some of the 20 million “illegal aliens” who have made their way across our boarders thanks to our government (intentionally) NOT doing their jobs or actually securing our borders. 


I won’t enter into discussion on the pros & cons of this issue because it opens a can of worms that does nothing but muddy the waters.  It’s like discussing ‘why’ a bank robber robbed a bank or a drug dealer sold drugs; could’ve been he came from a disenfranchised home or society ‘failed him’ in some way or he needed the money to pay for his sick mother’s cancer operation.  ‘Reasons’ are irrelevant when one commits a crime – it doesn’t change the fact that what was done was a breach of our existing LAW which makes the “act” a crime.  Coming here without permission is a crime, just the same as if I came into your home while you were sleeping (without permission) for WHATEVER reason. 


That said, your ‘leaders’ in Washington, on both sides of the make believe, political divide (Republicans or Democrats), are highly motivated to pass some kind of law to legitimize the presence of these people who are here without permission, in violation of (breaking) our Laws.  They are “knowingly assisting illegal aliens due to personal convictions” (or political payoffs) and here’s where immigration for dummies comes into play.  Read the citation of Law below to test your comprehension skills.  I’m quite confident that 98% of you will understand what the citation ‘means’.  Those 2% who don’t understand it should become lawyers or politicians.    


Federal Law, 8 USC 1324 (a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii) states very clearly: 

A person (including a group of persons, business, organization, or local government) commits a federal felony when she or he: assists an illegal alien she/he should reasonably know is illegally in the U.S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him or her to obtain employment, or encourages that illegal alien to remain in the U.S. by referring him or her to an employer or by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions. 

My guess is that you read this to mean (quite clearly) if you help (“assist”) an “illegal alien” to “remain in the U.S.” you are committing a “felony”. It doesn’t matter what the intentions of the illegal aliens are for being here.  It doesn’t matter if they’re hard working.  It doesn’t matter if they’re earning money to pay for their sick mother’s cancer operation.  They’re “illegal aliens” and if you do ANYTHING that ”encourages that illegal alien to remain in the U.S“ or ”knowingly assists illegal aliens“ you have committed a Federal Felony.  


Simple, clear, unambiguous (for 98% of us). 


Regardless of your political persuasion, regardless of how nice a guy (or girl) your Senator, Congressman or President is, regardless of how much federal pork they bring to your state or district, if they vote in favor of helping these people stay in the United States they have committed a FELONY thus, they are CRIMINALS. 


Here’s the deal – committing a “felony” puts your representative or favorite government ‘leader’ somewhere between a “high crime” and a “misdemeanor”.  In reading the Constitutional provisions for ‘Impeachment’.  Article 2 Section 4 of our Constitution states clearly: 

“The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Unless the reader of the passage above is an idiot, one would see nothing here that says they “can be”, nothing says “may be” & nothing says “should be”.  The highest Law of the land says “SHALL BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE”.  So, if the “issue” of immigration comes up and your elected official (for whatever reason) votes in favor of “assisting” illegal aliens within the United States he or she is, according to Federal Law 8 USC 1324, guilty of a felony.  If they commit a felony they “shall be” removed from office.  If you don’t care enough to DO SOMETHING about this then you are allowing a criminał/felon to be going about his or her business, collecting a paycheck (paid for by you)  continuing to subvert the rule of Law in our country. 


If you don’t do something it demonstrates that you don’t care about the Law.  If you don’t care about the Law, then why should you care when some punk knocks your 80 year old neighbor over the head to steal her grocery money, or sells dope to your kid in the school parking lot or shoots your parent in a robbery of the local convenience store?  If you don’t care about the Laws of this country then refuse to appear when called upon to be on a jury, refuse to help the local cop investigating a crime against your neighbor and refuse to help if anyone becomes the victim of a crime. 


Fact is, if some bum were selling drugs to your kid you would go to the cops and EXPECT them to stop him (or beat the snot out of the jerk doing this to your kid yourself).  Where’s the difference if your elected official commits a felony, you know about it and you do nothing?  It’s YOUR country and these are YOUR Laws they’re breaking.  When are you going to ‘man-up’ and do something to make sure your kids HAVE a country to inherit?


As was pointed out in the Brussels Journal on April 6th 2008 by Fjordman: 

“What we are dealing with is not “immigration” but colonization… Why on earth should we quietly watch while our country is subdued by the most unsuccessful cultures in the world?” 


You tell me.
