This headline made me sputter, scream a little. The I wrote the following article. Illegals don't have rights. Period.
I went through proper channels to emigrate to Australia in 1996. It took 4 years, tons of $$, criminal background checks I had to pay for, literally 2-1/2 inches of paperwork to fill out to prove I wouldn't be a burden on their country, PLUS leave the country every 6 months for a month at a time till approved. Hated it. Did it. Respected theirs laws. Emigration certainly wasn't to better my life there as the Australian government often sees with foreigners, but simply to bring my husband home to the U.S. again. It was hell, the process, but I did it. Paid for it. Did it right, by their law.
That these U.S. border raiders can barge through and put legal immigrants to the back of the line that took years of their life, money and paperwork to do lawfully should not be tolerated. No borders, no Country.
The ideal of taking in the "poor huddled masses" should have died decades ago, because in the beginning we had tons of land, we needed workers, able bodies, artisans, craftsmen, businesses, farmers, all kinds of people from every walk of life. Things are different now. We have too many people here already, illustrated by 94 million Americans unemployed, largely due to Bush and Obama's Progressive agendas and an "iffy" economy. That over 43 million Americans are on foodstamps should say it all. They can't get jobs that illegals are taking, undercutting pay. Americans could fill these jobs. People are pissed.
Trump would have won on this issue alone. Every day we see Americans disenfranchised. Stan and I live in a 42% Hispanic county. Some illegals are employed by construction and landscaping businesses. Everywhere around us is Spanish chatter. Sorry they have it bad in their native land, but we [should] put our own first.
The thing that really reached me was a light fixture in my home in the early 80's. The tag on the back read, "Hecho en China". I was surprised to realize what it said in Spanish, "Made in China." 35 years ago I concentrated on other priorities. Not now. America First as President-Elect Trump promises. That's why I'm working on a MASSIVE directory of how to buy American. It will probably take another month to complete, maybe to the first of the year, but it WILL get done and feature prominently on our site.
We support Americans. We want you to download it, use it, share it. If you have an all-American business, send me your name and business link. Mainstream folks have awakened, albeit a bit late, that we are getting the short end of the stick. again. This is OUR Country. Since when do others get first rights? This is crazy! No, it's unacceptable, and I speak for millions of Americans.
Obama's legacy is now in the dirt. He might be personally popular; his policies NOT. God help us that it's not too late. Pray nothing happens to Trump because he's our last chance to get our country back.
