Illegal Immigration & the Law
By Deanna Spingola
21 May 2005
Non enforcement of any law gives criminal license to the lawless. If an individual breaks the law, there should be consequences or others will follow the example of the unfettered lawbreaker. Justice also dictates that there cannot be selective prosecution based on some arbitrary standard or personal status. What good is the law if it does not apply to all, including arrogant, badly behaving elected officials? Laws are for the protection of the innocent and those who abide the law. The proper role of government is to enforce the laws for the overall welfare and security of its citizens. Elected officials should be held accountable for the enforcement of all laws and should not be at liberty to suspend certain regulations for the financial benefit of a few business owning, politically donating citizens or for some other hidden political motive.
The laws should not be suspended for the hordes of illegals that cross our borders daily. It does not matter why or how the illegal immigrants come into our country. Some may come to “do the jobs that Americans won’t do” and who knows where that rationalization came from? Yes, many wish to come to America for better opportunities. The reason America might be so attractive is because of the freedoms allegedly guaranteed by the very laws the illegals and our errant representatives are trashing.
Many of the illegals are from countries that are impoverished because of the socialistic and otherwise immoral behavior of that country’s leaders. Some of those leaders encourage illegal entry into America for their worst citizens: the morally corrupt and criminal element of their society. Why would Vicente Fox, an alleged good friend of Bush, dump all of his problem people on a country that has attempted to financially benefit his country with generous trade pacts? Is it America’s responsibility to take care of the cast-off citizens of other countries? Should our taxes pay for incarceration of their criminals? No, it is the government’s job to protect its citizens from the encroachment of others. Countries have borders for a reason.
America has generally welcomed those who desire to emigrate and become a part of this nation. Our ancestors were all immigrants. But they usually did not come here illegally to suck up our resources or engage in criminal behavior. They came with a desire to work and contribute to their communities. They had an interest in the success of their villages and towns. They constructed homes, farms, churches and synagogues which demonstrated their permanence. They embraced the language and culture while still honoring and retaining their heritage. They did not demand that we adapt to their language and culture – after all they were entering our country as guests.
Currently, there are two members of the House of Representatives who have demonstrated the legal and moral courage to uphold the Constitution while most of their congressional peers apparently do not take their oaths all that seriously. Congressmen, regardless of party, are obligated to uphold the laws that they enact in behalf of the rest of us. These two courageous representatives are Tom Tancredo and Ron Paul. Rather than demonstrating the courage of Tancredo and Paul, they often question or ridicule them.
On 10 May 2005 George W. Bush was in the country of Georgia, formerly a part of the Soviet Union. When our elected officials leave the country, watch out! That is when we need to be super vigilant. Included in an address he delivered to the citizens of Georgia, he stated:
"At the same time, the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Georgia must be respected - the territorial [sic] and sovereignty of Georgia must be respected by all nations.” 
Why does he recognize and encourage the protection of Georgia’s sovereignty but not America’s? Why does the success and stability of other countries matter more than the sacred oath that he made during his inaugural ceremony? He solemnly vowed, with his hand on the bible, to uphold the Constitution of this great nation. Obviously, this must be another way of taking the Lord’s name in vain. He also stated in his inaugural address: “My most solemn duty is to protect this nation and its people against further attacks and emerging threats. Some have unwisely chosen to test America's resolve, and have found it firm.”  Well, Mr. Bush, the borders are not firm and constitute an ongoing threat. What are his policies that make “America last” and every other country first?
In a Mexico City press release on 29 April 2005:
“President Bush’s administration has clearly stated that it rejects the vigilantism carried out by individuals on the border and he has said that he will not condone violations of the law.”  He is the one in violation - by this obvious treacherous lack of enforcement of his country’s laws.
The press release further stated:
“It should be noted that this year, by Mexico’s initiative, the United Nations Commission on Human Rights adopted by consensus a resolution on migrants’ rights in which states are urged to adopt effective measures to punish any detentions of migrants by individuals and to pursue and punish any violations of the law that result from this conduct.” 
"The Mexican government will assist with any lawsuits, anywhere, that are brought before the corresponding authorities if arrests are made by individuals or if the rights of Mexican citizens are violated.” 
“As has been stated previously, Mexico reiterates its commitment to continue working with officials at all levels of the United States government in the search for mechanisms that assure that Mexican migration to the United States is legal, safe, orderly and respectful of their rights.” 
WHAT ABOUT THE RIGHTS OF AMERICAN CITIZENS? Logically, an American citizen should be able to sue the Mexican government for loss of wages due to their lack of respect for our laws. Or a group of ex-employees who have been displaced by illegal immigrants ought to be able to initiate a class action suite against their ex-employer for loss of wages as well as racial discrimination.
There are no coincidences in politics. If something happens, you can be sure that it was planned that way. The constant influx of illegal immigrants, including other than Mexicans, affects our economy, morality, safety, health, social structure, politics and every other aspect of our lives. Our southern border has become the world’s gateway to our ultimate downfall. The agenda includes a planned perpetual foreign onslaught designed precisely for the results that it is achieving - the collapse of America and the eventual merging of adjacent nations into a tyrannical one world government. This devised merge is destroying the middle class. That will result in a two class society, the rich and the poverty stricken. The poverty stricken will then rely completely on the government for sustenance. He who writes the check, controls.
Because federal officials look the other way and the “mess media” are absolutely ignoring the illegal immigration situation we can assume that they do not view it as a problem. It is but a means to an end. More than a few “conservative” talk show hosts continually claim that the “mess media” has a liberal bias. I seriously question this evaluation. If it were actually liberally biased their attack on Bush regarding the borders would be merciless. The media isn’t right or left. This constant vocal contest between the so-called conservative right republicans and the liberal left democrats is a distracting political maneuver. The political agenda of the media, owned and controlled by big money in influential places, is compatible with that of Bush. They are on the same side: it is the CFR insiders against America.
It is totally inconsistent to create a Department of Homeland Security and speedily ram the Patriot Act through congress yet completely disregard the enormous border breach. The Patriot Act was devised and written during the Clinton presidency but was not implemented until America’s utter vulnerability after 9/11. So essentially it is not about safety or homeland security. Homeland Security and the Patriot Act are a farce. The more obvious purpose is the additional withdrawal of certain individual freedoms. We have been deprived of personal liberties with a promise of national security and we are less safe than before 9/11. The only benefactors of Homeland Security are the individuals appointed to run yet another government agency – in other words – the squandering of our tax dollars.
George W. Bush has a moral obligation to abide by and enforce the laws of this nation. Another slothful servant, Bill (I did not have sex with that woman.) Clinton, by his deceitful behavior and low life explanations, introduced a new moral mentality regarding intimate relationship practices, much to the dismay of teenager’s parents who now cite this disreputable individual as reason for their own immoral behavior. However, Clinton certainly did not set the precedent for lying – that has and is standard procedure for the administration.
This is not simply about the justifications for illegal entry into this country. Of course, illegals have compelling motives. Among them are the following: they come to take the jobs of Americans, sell drugs, receive health care and get social security benefits after their return to Mexico. Their motives, whether good or bad, are beside the point. That is not the primary concern. The plain and simple fact is
– ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IS ILLEGAL!!!!!
