Last week the Los Angeles City Council voted to boycott Arizona. They said Arizona’s Illegal Immigration Enforcement Bill would result in racial profiling. They called it racist. They likened it to Nazi Germany. They are morons.
I wrote a letter to Councilwoman Janice Hahn after seeing her interview by Greta Von Susteren. Like Attorney General Eric Holder, she obviously hadn’t read the bill. She gave the typical talking points used by people who support illegal immigration….it’s racist, it’s a Federal problem, we need “Comprehensive Immigration Reform”…..yadda, yadda, yadda.
I wrote Ms Hahn, and told her she didn’t speak for us, the citizens of California. All the polls show the citizens of this state and country overwhelming support what Arizona is doing. I reminded Ms Hahn that we passed “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” in 1986 and it resulted in the 3 million who were here then, growing to 20 million or more now. The American citizens have made it crystal clear we want our borders secured by whatever means necessary and however many border patrol agents necessary. It is the PRIMARY job of the Federal Government to protect our country. I think it’s fair to call one to three million people entering this country illegally every year, an “invasion”. It is outrageous that our City Council thinks Arizona should just tolerate one kidnapping a day, hundreds of murders, drugs pouring across the border, ranchers land invaded daily, etc. waiting for the Federal government to do the job of securing the border and enforcing immigration laws……when the government shows no inclination to do so.
In her interview Ms Hahn said the citizens were angry because Congress had not passed “Comprehensive Immigration Reform”. No, the citizens are angry that Congress keeps trying to pass amnesty for millions of lawbreakers. I reminded her (what planet does she live on?) that the citizens had stopped every attempt at passing “Reform” because every bill includes a “pathway to citizenship” and the American citizens are 100% against this. We believe anyone entering this country illegally, taking jobs from Americans, stealing social security numbers and/or forging documents, driving illegally with no insurance, paying no taxes and using enormous amounts of social services, have forfeited the privilege of citizenship. A fine is not punishment to people who may have paid thousands to a coyote to come here. They have demonstrated they are not so interested in being citizens as they are at being allowed to stay here or come and go as they please. They have demonstrated their alligence is to their native country first and are proud of it. I asked Ms Hahn why we would cheapen our most valuable gift, citizenship, by giving it to people who disrespect our laws, our flag, our language and our culture?
We don’t need yet another “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” bill. We need the government to enforce the present immigration and employment laws and SECURE THE BORDER. That needs to be done first. Then we should wait five years or more and see how many illegal aliens are left. We don’t need to “round up and deport millions of illegal aliens”, as Nancy Pelosi keeps saying. If we actually secured the border and inforced our laws a very large number would self deport. When years have passed and we are confident the measures are working we could see who is left, do background checks, insist on English being the only language spoken and collect back taxes. We could then give permanent residency to those remaining, but not citizenship. They forfeited that possibility by not respecting our immigration laws.
The LA Times had a poll asking readers if they supported Arizona’s law and the results were 97% YES. So, who is the City Council speaking for? The illegal aliens. It is unbelievable to me that so many of our representatives take positions in support of lawbreakers. Ms Hahn said the people where “fed up” with government not doing their job. I told her, yes, we were “fed up”. We were fed up with our representatives representing the “rights” of illegal aliens over the rights of the legal and law-abiding citizens. We are fed up with paying more and more taxes to support illegal aliens. We are fed up with our children being forced out of the schools we pay for because of non-English speaking children. We are fed up with entire cities being turned into annexes of Tijuana. We are fed up with “dial one for English”. We are fed up with thousands of illegal aliens demonstrating in the streets waving Mexican flags and demanding rights they aren’t entitled to. We are fed up with the increasing attitude of entitlement illegal aliens feel and the resentment and hostility they show toward white citizens.
I told Councilwoman Hahn, this was her fault as much as the Federal Government’s. It is the Mayor and the City Council who declared Los Angeles a sanctuary city. They are the ones encouraging and emboldening illegal aliens. American citizens are fed up alright. We are fed up with our representatives being completely out of touch with those they are supposed to represent. They all took an oath to uphold the laws of this country but instead, support lawbreakers while punishing those who do respect the law.
We support Arizona and many Tea Parties are planning trips to Arizona to show support. The LA City Council DOES NOT SPEAK FOR US.
I sent a copy of my letter to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, Gov. Schwarzengger, Mayor Villaraigosa, and every member of the City Council.
