The Immigration Debate

My good friend Lonnie (who was awarded two Bronze Stars in South Vietnam) forwarded me an email which had been forwarded to him.  He doesn’t send me a lot of junk, and most is of an historical/military nature.  But this email was a little different.

My personal opinion is that The United States is a free nation, and it’s no surprise others from other more-oppressive and less prosperous nations wish to emigrate here.  We are indeed made up of the melting pot, and folks who can contribute to the Nation and the economy should be welcomed.

In a few words, the email outlines some of the issues and frustrations regarding The Immigration Debate.

In part it says:

My Grandfather watched as his friends died in WW I…My Father watched as his friends died in WW II and Korea …I watched as my friends died in Vietnam ….None of them died for the Mexican Flag…Everyone died for the U.S. flag…In Texas , a student raised a Mexican flag on a school flag pole; another student took it down.Guess who was expelled.. the kid who took it down.Kids in high school in California were sent home last year on Cinco de Mayo because they wore T-shirts with the

American flag printed on them.Enough is enough.

The below e-mail message needs to be viewed by every American;
and every American needs to stand up for America ..

We’ve bent over to appease the America-haters long enough…

I’m taking a stand…

I’m standing up because the hundreds of thousands who died fighting in wars for this country, and for the U.S. flag can’t stand up…

And shame on anyone who tries to make this a racist message…

Let me make this perfectly clear!

THIS IS MY COUNTRY!  And, because I make This statement
DOES NOT
mean I’m against immigration!!!
YOU ARE WELCOME HERE, IN MY COUNTRY!
Welcome!
To come through legally:

1. Get a sponsor!
2. Get a place to lay your head!
3.
 Get a job!
4.
 Live By OUR Rules!
5.
 Pay YOUR Taxes!
6.
 Learn the LANGUAGE like immigrants
have in the past!!!

AND
 7. Please don’t demand that we hand over our lifetimesavings of Social Security Funds to you.

If you don’t want to forward this for fear of offending someone,
Then
YOU’RE PART OF THE PROBLEM!
When will
AMERICANS STOP giving away THEIR RIGHTS???  We’ve gone so far the other way…
bent over backwards not to
 offend anyone…
But it seems no one cares about the

AMERICAN CITIZEN
that’s being offended!
WAKE UP America !!!

It should be noted here that one of Lonnie’s son’s was killed in an automobile accident, while driving home from work one night.  A couple guys ran a stop sign, after stealing beer from a nearby convenience store and hit him.  They were illegal aliens.

Yet he STILL believes in LEGAL immigration.

  1. “A couple guys ran a stop sign, after stealing beer from a nearby convenience store and hit him. They were illegal aliens.”

    Would the son be any less dead if they’d been WASPs from Chicago? Their identity has nothing, really, to do with their actions and choices. Those would be criminal no matter who they were.

    And who in their right mind would die for “a flag” of any sort?

    I would gladly die, if necessary, to defend my home, family and community. I don’t have to cross an ocean to do that, however. And neither does anyone else.

    • It was simply a statement of fact. Lonnie could have soured to all immigration, and has not.
      My daughter was killed by an American guy.

      • Sure sounds to me as if he’s making it an immigration problem. Eliminate welfare and all the rest of the BS that is destroying the economy and society for everyone. Integrity and self government are the key, not passing more “laws” to control immigration.

      • I simply passed along email content he send to me and added the personal info. This was to facilitate discussion. Thanks for discussing!
        I didn’t see anything in the email demanding more laws to control immigration – we have plenty of laws now not being enforced.
        I agree with you that integrity and self-government are the key, but persons who commit crimes or torts while in this country illegally seem to have neither.
        “Eliminate welfare and all the rest of the BS that is destroying the economy and society for everyone.”
        Amen.

      • Sure… I just get annoyed when things are in gigantic font in multi colors demanding things from other people. And I think the real crimes of theft, murder and so forth are committed by every race, creed and nationality – pretty much across the board. The crime is the problem, and the unwillingness of so many to actively defend themselves and their communities.

        My grandparents were “illegal immigrants” from 1870 Scotland. Oh yeah, there were no immigration “laws” then, to speak of. They came with pretty much the clothes on their back… They never stopped speaking their native language either. 🙂 No welfare, of course, so they spent the rest of their lives as subsistence ranchers and farmers in the Dakota Territories.

        And even the Blackfeet indians who lived nearby were careful not to “offend” them. Those old time Highland Scots were crusty people. 🙂

        This PC crap is the outer limits of stupid. 😦

    • HAHAHA! Like I never made a typo.
      What a cool family history. I’m still digging into mine.
      My Dad’s family was from Ireland, late 1700’s early 1800’s. Settled in Illinois. Became railroaders, cops, even a gunsmith!
      My Mother’s family goes back to the American Revolution. My maternal Grandmother was descended from Sybil Ludington, daughter of one of Washington’s colonels, who did a Paul Revere thing, at age 16.
      Great stuff this American heritage!

      • Typos! AKKK The really funny thing is that I’m editing something rather picky right now, going back and forth to look at blogs and things… not really a good idea. LOL

        And my other excuse is that I recently changed keyboards… and my fingers don’t seem to fit this one!!! It will settle down eventually, but for now I have to watch myself very carefully – especially when I’m working!

        And yes.. our histories are so important in many ways. My father worked for the Great Northern Railroad as it was being built across the country. Bet you couldn’t guess what his job was… he was a hunter and brought in game to feed the crews building the rails. 🙂
