Umm...What Say We BUILD A FENCE Already!

...Or start to learn Spanish

Ever think to yourself "Man! This being in the Silent Majority thing kinda' sucks!?" Well, as I watched half a million people march through Los Angeles on Saturday screaming about legislation that would curb illegal immigration and secure our borders, I wondered two things. ONE - why not arrest these criminals NOW while so many are in one convenient place, and TWO - where do I sign up for the statistically MUCH BIGGER rally against these bastards?

Now, let it be said for the record that I really do understand why a poor Mexican family would want to come here. Mexico, for all of its charm for the tourist, is a corrupt government with a stagnant economy. And I also understand the argument that these folks do the kind of work that Americans (for the most part) don't want to do for such low wages. And YES, I get it about how some farms and industries would take it in the rear-flap of their ponchos if this windfall of cheap labor disappeared tomorrow.

But what I DON'T understand is why I, as a law-abiding tax-payer, should have to pay for the burden they place on the rest of our society. If they come here to work illicitly - then get education, healthcare and welfare, then it is our lucky citizenry who have to pick up the check. And don't get me started on the Spanish in schools and on tests!

If I hear "America is a nation of immigrants" just one more time I'm gonna go and kick the neighbor's yappy little chihuahua right in the chalupa! More than 85% of us were born here! I did not come in on any banana boat - so turn off your old Harry Belafonte record and get a grip!

Here is what I propose we do - it is a simple 3-step process (should be a no-brainer for you 12-steppers out there! ;-)

  1. Build a REALLY KICKASS STATE-OF-THE-ART FENCE - sort of like the one described by WeNeedAFence.com
  2. Require illegal aliens to register for temperary work permits, but they must submit their requests from their homes-of-record in Mexico (or wherever else they come from). Those who do not should be rounded up and deported - and never allowed to return.
  3. Reform our ridiculous LEGAL immigration laws so that law-abiding folks who want to share the American Dream can apply for immigration and expect to be heard in a reasonable time.
With estimates ranging from one to three million illegals crossing over every year, something has to be done. As I pointed out in an article two weeks ago, current proposed legislation is moving us in the right direction. My only hope is that the infuriatingly silent majority finds its voice very, very soon - or it may find itself speaking Spanish.
