An insult to the real Civil Rights Movement

Democrats plan to make illegal immigration the next civil-rights crusade. Because foreigners breaking our laws to get into America are just like the US citizens who fought for the political rights guaranteed them as citizens.

If I were the NAACP, I’d be teed-off that the accomplishments of my parents and grandparents were being so diminished by the comparison, but that would require a NAACP that wasn’t deep in the hip pocket of the Democratic Party.

“Shameless” doesn’t half-describe it.

    And of course anyone who questions it will be slammed by someone carrying an “Absolute Moral Authority” card. Sigh. :(

    We’ve been complacent too long and now people are angrier than hell. These progressive idiots are out of control.

    What about the American employers who employ the illegals? When are we ever going to crack down on them?

    And does anyone ever stop to think that American expansion, which precipitated our acquisition by war of much of southwestern US from Mexico, may be a justification in the minds of the “illegals” to, in effect, reoccupy their former land?

    And regarding civil rights, do not forget that the annexation of Texas added one more slave state to the union!

    Sometimes what goes around comes around. Is this what we have here regarding our “illegals”? According to whose law are they illegal? Food for thought!

    LOL So laughable. Perhaps all of those Hispanics should go back to Spain, and stop invading our country, maybe give it back to the Aztecs whom they stole it from!!! – Lorica

    We already are. My favorite recent bust is a Dutch-born couple running a Michigan farm who tried to avoid jail because they have an “obligation” to the people who ordered their specialty, organic meats for the holidays. Boo stinkin’ hoo.

    … may be a justification in the minds of the “illegals” to, in effect, reoccupy their former land?

    Only the extremely dishonest and/or ignorant-of-history – or those poisoned by former Mexican President Vicente Fox’s campaign to bilk the US taxpayers of Social Security and other benefits. I doubt many immigrants would want to “take back” land if they had to “give back” American irrigation projects, roads, hospitals, etc. Not to mention that a lot of Hispanic Texans would protest having to “give back” land that they stayed on before, during, and after achieving statehood. Then again, it would be hilarious to see the “give back” expanded; e.g. modern Italians could demand that France, England and other countries give back the land belonging to the Roman Empire! 8-|

    Seriously, Lorica correctly pointed out that the real owners would have first dibs. Personally, I wish the indígenas would occupy Mexico City and demand education, health care, and other services that they’ve been denied! The institutionalized prejudice against native people is horrifying, even to this day.

    “According to whose law are they illegal?”

    Well, Wagonwheel, maybe it’s the laws of the land on which they trespassed. Kinda like the immigration laws that Mexico enforces with a vengeance.

    ‘Course, they have a different take on it all, seeings how they promote the poor of their country (which is the vast, vast majority of their citizens) to come to this country so they 1) don’t have to be bothered with seeing them daily, and 2) get to let Uncle Sugar take care of their every need and most of their wants.

    And MissJean, busting a couple for hiring a few illegals at slave wages is hardly what is meant by “(cracking) down on employers.” Now, if they went to most of the major packing plants, or to the major farms in California, Oregon, Washington and Arizona, or to the building sites in nearly any city USA, and started handing out $1000 fines per illegal per day, then maybe it would get those employers’ attention and they might be a little more careful when hiring 27 different Enrique Mendozas that all happen to have the same social security numbers (that happen to belong to a 27-year old in Putzbah, MN.)

    The bottom line is, there certainly are solutions to the criminal alien problem and problems, but it will take something more than a jellyfish backbone to install those solutions and resist the criminal bribes and threats of the employers so caught.

    BTW, who else has noticed that we have approximately 16M unemployed in the US today, and somewhere between 14M and 25M criminal aliens running around? Coincidence? I hardly think so.

    Sorry, I got sidetracked. What I was originally going to say was that, because of the legitimacy of the real civil rights movement, nearly every “victim” group wants to ride the coattails and claim the same legitimacy.

    Sorry, it don’t work that way. A movement has to have legitimacy on its own; otherwise, it’s simply a bunch of malcontents wondering why the world’s pickin’ on them.

    Hey Wagon–
    My ancestors were originally from France and Germany (via Scotland and Ireland). We were booted out by other groups. I want reparations (if not land) back from all four countries!! They owe me!!! Now I’m angry!! I think I’ll claim it’s a “civil rights” issue!!!!
    Oh, please.
