The United States has immigration laws. Many, if not most American support developing a strategy for stopping the flood of illegal immigrants. Americans have been calling for immigration reform. Unless you’ve been in a cave, you’ve heard the news that Arizona has a new immigration law. It seems to do the same as thing as the US Federal immigration law. But there are protest against the Arizona law.
Is there a reason to protest?
Check out this very clever email I received.
(It’s got the chain letter nonsense at the end of it (which I hate,
but decided to publish the ending as is.)
Does it accurately explain the mentality of the protestors?
Recently large demonstrations have taken place across the country protesting the fact that Arizona is addressing the issue of illegal immigration.
Certain people are angry
that the US might protect its own borders, might make it harder to sneak into
this country and, once here, to stay indefinitely.
‘No! I like it here. It’s better than my house. I’ve made all the beds and washed the dishes and did the laundry and swept the floors. I’ve done all the things you don’t like to do. I’m hard-working and honest (except for when I broke into your house).
According to the protesters:
You are Required to let me stay in your house.
You are Required to feed me.
You are Required to add me to your family’s insurance plan.
You are Required to educate my kids.
You are Required to provide other benefits to me & to my family.
(My husband will do all of your yard work because he is also
hard-working and honest, except for that breaking in part).
It’s only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than I do, and I’m just trying to better myself. I’m a hard-working and honest, person, except for well, you know, I did break into your house and what a deal it is for me!!!
If not blow it off……… along with your future Social Security funds, and a lot of other things.
