Illegal Immigration Wars

Here is a video of a protest that happens every Saturday in Spring Texas outside a small convience store at the entrance of a neighborhood where a friend of mine lives.

I think it illustrates the extreme on both sides of this debate. My friend tells me that the border watch guys bring their concealed weapons to the protest. Two of the pro-illegal immigrant protestors proudly admit to being Marxist.

I would like to ask both sides some questions. First to the pro-illegal immigrant side. Does it not concern you that companies exploit and take advantage of Illegal immigrants? You fight for the right of the illegal to stand there in the mornings for jobs, but you have no concern that they are practically slave labor? They work the hours the company says at the pay the company says, and if these people are abused even further, who do they turn to?

To the border watch people I would ask, why do you need guns? To intimidate? To show your power? Do you not think illegal immigrants feel powerless enough?

These people "representing" illegals, do not represent them at all. They have some sort of political agenda and they use the immigrants as much as the companies who employ them do.

Maybe the person who called illegals "cockroches" doesn't represent the border watch view, but you should throw out anyone who says such a horrible thing. Who are you angry with over this? The illegal? Who only comes here because he needs to make a living and he leaves poverty behind that we in the U.S. cannot even imagine.

Who you should be angry with is our government who cannot control our border, who cannot enforce our laws, and who entice illegal behavior with handouts and free services. Go protest the government where the only real change can happen.

To the pro-illegal protestors, especially the professor who was so indignant. I hope you are spending as much time helping those who stand there every morning get the paper work done to become citizens as you do yelling at police officers.

Who are these kinds of people? On both sides. Shouting like a 2 yr old on a temper trantrum. It makes me sick. All of you should be ashamed.

Do any of you think you are on the side of right? Right is how we treat each other. Angry protests in front of neighborhoods will only breed more anger and hate. Perhap I expect ugly behavior from Marxists, but are any of you Christians? If so, then maybe you should remember that we are taught to even love our enemies. We are taught to treat others as we would like to be treated.

Our government is at the root of this problem and this is where the problem should be attacked.

Stay home this Saturday. No one wins here.
