illegal immigration and you.
#19
I live in a border town, so I see this problem first hand.  Before I start though.  I must point out that I am of Hispanic descent and a 3rd generation American citizen.  My grandparents came here legally and were contributing members of society.  My grandfather worked hard to become a doctor and had his own practice as a pediatrician until he retired, while my grandmother was a homemaker (Yes, back in the 30s my grandfather suffered a lot of discrimination for being Mexican, but he managed).  Their children, a doctor, an aeronautical engineer, and two teachers (including my  mother), are hard working/tax paying members of society.  We, the grandchildren, which include, an electrical engineer, a civil engineer, lawyer, accountant, speech pathologist, physical therapist, law enforcement, business owners, finance adviser, and a teacher, are also hard working/tax paying members of society. I must also point out that my family was never into the 'chicano' movement and we have always been proud Americans.

The reason I pointed out my family history is because I want to make the point that I can see the difference between Mexicans who really want to work hard and make a difference in their lives, and Mexicans who come to work, take their dollars, not pay taxes, send the money back to Mexico (so the U.S. loses the money), use our health care for free and really do expect the U.S. to cater to them.  Unfortunately, there are more of that kind around here than the first I mentioned.

There are also the Mexicans who live across the border, who apply for madicare/madicaid here, give a fake address, get through the loopholes and cross the border with visitor visas to come to the doctor for free, go shopping and fill out a form to get the taxes they just paid for  back...because, after all, 'they are not Americans'.


Having said that, of course we must be good Catholics and help the needy, but if you lived here, you would see that these 'needy' people reap and take from tax payers.  Also, you must know that the Catholic Church does not want you to break the law, which these people are...whether they are dangerous criminals or not, they are breaking the law. 

Also, YOU have property boundaries in your property, you have fences and gates and door locks.  You would not let just any body into your property unless you yourself accepted them in.  So why is that so different from our national borders?  If someone comes into your house through the back door and says, hey, "I'm just here because I want a better place to live in" and starts taking the food from your fridge without asking I don't think you would be very willing to help him/her.  But if someone KNOCKS on your door and asks to come in because they need a place to stay...well, then its up to you to welcome them in and let them have your food.
