It goes without saying that proponents of illegal immigration into America will do or say anything to keep the takeover of America going. They want America to be a third world shitbox like the one the countries that they come from.
Don’t believe me? Take a trip into Pomona or Ontario. Pomona used to be like Hollywood east. Big bands used to play the local ballrooms and people would come from miles around to see the place.
Now Mission and Holt Avenues are nothing but used car lots, taco stands, pawn shops and liquor stores. Graffiti is everywhere. Crime is better today but is largely out of control.
Houses in South Pomona resemble housing in Mexico. Bars on every window. Security doors on every door. Homes are painted all of these crazy colors that look like someone vomited in Technicolor.
So when I hear this nonsense about how they come here looking for a better life, I call bullshit. These people refuse to assimilate. They refuse to speak English. They refuse to become part of the fabric that makes up America, that makes us all American.
This is what the proponents of illegal immigration can’t seem to understand. People are pissed off at them because they come to America to live but behave as if they are still in Mexico. JD
As Republican members of Congress press for changes to the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, preventing automatic citizenship for babies born to illegal immigrants, opponents insist the debate is not really about babies.
Instead, they say it is about politics and votes – not fixing the immigration system.
Still, the debate could resonate in Texas, where not only 1.5 million illegal immigrants are estimated to reside but at least 60,000 babies are added to their households annually.
Parkland Memorial Hospital delivers more of those babies than any other hospital in the state. Last year at Parkland, 11,071 babies were born to women who were noncitizens, about 74 percent of total deliveries. Most of these women are believed to be in the country illegally.
State Rep. Rafael Anchía, D-Dallas, accused Republicans of using the births to generate an explosive election issue.
“They’re pulling the pin on the immigration grenade,” he said. “It’s all about the November elections and continuing to use the immigration issue as a wedge to win votes this fall.”
But to Republicans, the emerging national debate is long overdue, considering that millions of immigrants have been living illegally in this country for years.
“They’re violating our law, and we’re giving their children the benefit of U.S. citizenship,” said state Rep. Leo Berman, R-Tyler, whose 2009 bill in the Legislature would have challenged the birthright of immigrant children.
That bill died in committee, although Berman has vowed to file another version next year that would prohibit the state from issuing birth certificates to the children of “illegal aliens.”
“I’ve checked the Congressional Record for when the 14th Amendment was written, and the author was quoted as saying that it did not apply to foreigners,” he said. “There’s no question in my mind about it.”
