I’m just going to put this out there for all the proponents of Illegal Immigration and explain the reality of people coming into America illegally. These people that keep trying to push illegal immigration being good for America. As far as I am concerned, nothing could be further from the truth.
Here in Los Angeles, it has affected our lives exponentially for over 30 years. You can’t keep anything outside of your house. Not even a garden hose because we have these roving bands of What I Call “Land Pirates” that come into your neighborhood under the premise of going through your garbage and collecting the recyclables. What they’re actually doing is STEALING the recyclables from your city issued recycling can (thus stealing income from the city) and canvassing the neighborhood breaking into cars, stealing garden hoses, stealing bird baths and anything else they can get their hands on.
God help you if you’re a contractor and your truck is parked in the driveway. When you go out there the next morning, anything of any value will be gone. This has gone on for years now. In public parking lots, any drain grates, fire hydrant caps or for that matter, anything made of metal had better be welded, bolted or cabled to the ground or it will be stolen. They recycle everything they can get their hands on, even manhole covers, which have caused serious car accidents.
Vacant homes get broken into for the the copper plumbing and wire that are ripped out of the drywall and stolen. Entire kitchen cabinet sets stolen. Carpet rolled up and stolen. Anything of any value. This goes on day and night.
Meanwhile, another argument is that illegal immigrants that come to America eventually start a business, run it all cash, hide every cent that they make from the IRS while their wife and kids collect welfare and EBT on the other side. I’m here to tell you these people live better than Americans making 80 grand a year.
I’ve been in the supermarket when a couple comes rolling up in his Escalade or pimped out Suburban, fill two carts with a bunch of food, and when they get to the register, they pay for it with multiple EBT cards. They run every scam in the book.
Then there’s the whole premise that they are just “hardworking industrious people” and they just want a better life. Oh, and one of my favorites, “They are only doing the work Americans won’t do.” Every time I hear the previous statement, I say “Finish the sentence.” The correct way to say it is “They are only doing the work Americans won’t do for five dollars an hour.” Trust me, you pay a man $25.00 an hour and he will pick lettuce, cherries and apples while building a brick wall and framing a house at the same time.
Someone needs to explain to me how bringing somebody into this country that’s will work for $8 an hour and telling him go take the job of a person that was making $35 an hour is “good for America.”
You’re taking a person that had the spending power of a $35 dollar an hour employee and paid taxes at that rate, and replacing him with someone who pays less in taxes and sends half of his money back to Mexico! HOW IS THAT GOOD FOR AMERICA???? Everything about the illegal immigration argument from its proponents is predicated on lies and falsehoods. If you press them with those simple fact, they run screaming “racism” and call you a “racist” because that’s all they have.
It has nothing to do with race. It has everything to do with protecting the jobs and the people of the United States of America and THEIR possessions. I don’t understand why people can’t see that. These people come into the country by breaking our laws. What makes anyone think that once they’re here they would obey any of our laws?
I haven’t even brushed on the violent crimes, vehicular crimes and rapes committed by illegal immigrants. The list goes on and on. I can come up with thousands of ways that illegal immigration is bad for America and Americans. The proponents of illegal immigration have only one argument. “They are coming for a better life.” Well I would not have an argument if they started their “better life” in America by NOT making breaking our laws their first priority.
