Criminal Aliens



The last figures I remember hearing about illegal aliens said that 2/3s of Americans wanted their politicians to do something about the problem. The figures bandied about claim that the quantity is somewhere between 12 and 20 million of them. Both sets of numbers are most likely higher now then a few years ago when these numbers were being used. We actually started on a fence. Big deal!

Why is this Average American so fired up over this issue? Two years ago, I was getting up at 2:00A.M. on Monday morning to drive 3 1/2 hours to work. During the week, I stayed in a motel, at my own expense. On Saturday, after a short 10 hour day, I drove 3 1/2 hours back home. I did this to make a decent living. During this period, there was a brand new Walmart being built 3 miles from my home. For the type of work I do(construction), they were paying $8.00 per hour. It wasn't very long into the project before the reason for the dirt cheap wages became evident. One day, local police and Border Patrol officers chased down and caught 14 illegal aliens who had been working for a subcontractor at the Walmart! Of course, nothing was ever done to Walmart, the general contractor or the masonary subcontractor who had done the actual hiring. Was I upset about this whole deal? YOU DAMNED WELL BETTER BELIEVE IT!!!!

Illegal aliens coming here taking our (my) jobs is only the tip of the iceberg my friends. Because they are illegal, they have to work for a lot less than the prevailing wage. This tends to drive down wages for ALL workers and a raise---forget it!. How many times have I heard Bush and other politicians say "they only take jobs Americans don't want." BULL SHIT!! They take jobs Americans don't want because the pay is an insult! And THEY are the reason for those dispicably low wages.

What other problems do illegals cause? Let's start with our school systems. How many cities and towns are hiring more teachers and building more new schools and buying more books and supplies and shelling out more money to educate illegal's children? What is the cost of teaching English to all those kids, and teaching them in Spanish until they master English? How much more are WE paying for health care because 20 million illegals are getting their healthcare free? How much is it costing us to write everything imaginable in English---and then in Spanish? There are more and more politicians talking about giving their children a free ride through college!! I just barely got done paying for MY OWN two kids. The second one graduated college 10 years ago! I'll be damned if I want MY TAX DOLLARS going toward that!



They claim that the Social Security sysyem is going broke. I wonder how much more broken it will get when they add 20 million illegals onto the roles. I will have paid in for 51 years by the time I am eligible to receive payments from it. If these illegals start paying in at, say, age 40, they will only pay in for 27 or so years. That sounds like more damage to the system to me.

Whose the nitwit that first decided to give them driving licenses?? They never were "undocumented workers", they have always been "illegal aliens!" Now, if they get a drivers license, they have a document. That brings us to a REAL PROBLEM!! How hard will it be for millions of them to be able to slip in and vote? They have already proved that they don't give two shits for our laws. I can see them now, pouring in and voting for demoncraps because that is who will give them every freebie program you can imagine. The more they can get for free, the more money they can send home to pay for relatives to come here too. Just like a snowball rolling down a hill, the problem gets bigger and bigger.

What can be done? Many say give them amnesty, they're good, hard working people. Others say "send every one of them back home!" The Average American says "as much as I'd like to send every one of them back home, we can't." What we CAN do however, is to make them WANT to go back home. If there were no jobs for them, most would end up having to go back. I would have no problem giving them a free bus ride south! How do we work-starve them? How many employers do you think we would have to throw in jail before the rest quit hiring illegals? We already have the law, just make the punishment jail time instead of a slap on the wrist! Start with a MANDATORY six months. That would probably suffice. If not, increase it until it works!

Maybe the Average American should run for President??!!

Wasn't McCain in favor of amnesty?

Average American said...

Calls it a pathway to citizenship. It is the major complaint I have with him. Hopefully he will come around, at least part way. He does want to stop the flow FIRST though, that is a small step in the right direction.

you got my vote hun!..great read..the first sign says it all!

MK said...

Not to mention the cost of treating them at the nation's hospitals. Contrary to leftists fantasies, it's not Santa Claus or the Government paying for it, but the American taxpayer.

And the other cost that cannot be measured is that of crime committed by illegals, how do you put a price on the lives taken by them.

Jail employers who hire them, throw about 10 in jail and make sure it's all over the airwaves, the rest will figure it out all by themselves. When the illegals can't find work, provide them with free and safe passage back to the border and while you're at it, finger print them and get some details for future reference. if they are repeat offenders, call in Sheriff Joe and put em' on the chain gangs before sending them home.

Average American said...

WHT, thank you for the vote of confidence, and yes I love that sign!

MK, I guess I omitted to mention the crime, but the hospital costs fall under healthcare. Ole Sheriff Joe knows how to handle them, that's for sure!

I was thinking 10 employers might do the trick, but surely 50 would be enough and I think we can find room in our prisons for at least that many. We are in the process of getting a brand new federal prison right here in my home town, another job that probably has illegals working there. It is only about 3 or 4 miles from my house too. TThey pay peanuts so I won't work there. You pay peanuts, you get MONKEYS(or illegals)!

I know that I might not be the most favorite commenter when the thread turns to illegal immigration, but I strongly believe that a border fence will not solve the issue. The key is for the Mexican government to tackle the situation forcing Mexicans to want to flee to the US...this includes soaring drug cartel violence, mass killings, rampant corruption, and a terrible economic situation. Mexico has the highest number of kidnappings in the world, and an independence rally was bombed by suspected cartel gangs just the other day, killing or wounding over 100 people. The most frightening thing of all is that this is not happening on the other side of the world...but right on our doorstep. The flow of illegals will never stop unless the situation in Mexcico is addressed first. As a neighbor, we should do everything we can to help Calderon tackle the drug cartels--who have adopted Al-Qaeda style tactics and killings.

Some people look at AQ in Iraq or the Taliban in Afghanistan and say "I hope we don't ever have to fight those people here at home". Well, people every bit as dangerous are already here, and they openly roam the borders harming Mexicans and Americans alike.

Frankly, I'm disgusted that many media outlets are anxious to grab a camera and rush toward anything that explodes in Baghdad but have hardly touched this situation.

BTW, I also believe that it would be very difficult, if not impossible, to succeed in the US without learning the language, which of course is English. I live in California and when I go to the bank the deposit slips are printed in both English and Spanish. This will only lead to more chaos if the entire country follows suit.

Average American said...

CH, I whole-heartedly agree with you that the fence is not the answer. Get rid of the reasons that drive them to come here. The main reason, in my mind is money from jobs they can find here. You are also right to site problems in Mexico which also need to be addressed. However, these concerns are secondary to jobs here. The drug cartels are a double edged sword. They affect illegal immigration and they cause major problems for our own "war on drugs." I have no problem with the U.S. helping Mexico with their problems, AFTER we control illegal immigration into our country!

Two languages being used all over the place does one thing and one thing only! It ENABLES people to continue using their native tongue and forego learning English. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!! Learn English or GO HOME!! If you can't understand English you can't vote, you can't drive, you can't get welfare, you can't fill out a job application, you can't order a meal at Taco Belle, and, YOU CAN'T STAY HERE!!

Tapline said...

AA, Sounds like you have the problem addressed and the solutions. The only problem is our polititians and elected ones don't see it that way. The ones that make the laws, make them but do not see that they are enforced. See our outstanding government come down on San Francisco????just kidding. But answer lies in big business and money.....But as with you ,,,,,I refuse to join them....A person I know worked for the IRS they allowed aliens to learn English while on duty, but Whities,,,,NO NO!!!!they have to get their languages taught after hours and not at employers expense.....Just another shining example of Government think.....stay well....

Z said...

Just today, I thought what'll be the biggest disagreement between Sarah and mcCain is immigration. You can bet SHE isn't taking any of the guff you had to put up with in that WalMart story, AA.....I'll bet she'd be tougher on illegals. We can only HOPE!

I just told my lefty troll it's people like HIM who believe in multilingual EVERYTHING who are the ones responsible for keeping Central Americans as gardeners and housekeepers........because they're not expected to learn ENGLISH....I told him that's the way you like 'em......DEPENDENT on the GOVERNMENT. Great post, AA!!

YES! Make it so they WANT TO GO HOME. NO health coverage, NO anchor babies, tax them, etc etc.....legals welcome. Illegals...go home, or get at the end of the line.

Average American said...

Tapline, welcome back! I can't even imagine how bad some places have it. We up here only see the occasional illegals. There are cities with hundreds of thousands of them.

Z, that's how the leftards want to keep everybody, illegals and citizens alike, dependent on government. I'm with you. I hope Palin can talk some sense into him. I heard or read somewhere, that he plans to use her for some things such as the energy policy. I hope he'll leave immigration up to her also!

C.H. said...

AA, that "the media lines up to interview sarah palin" cartoon is hilarious! And it couldn't be more right, too! Did you see the Gibson interview?

MK said...

Just so you know, in case you visit my blog and wonder why no new posts, Wordpress have put my blog on hold, apparently they are reviewing it because they are concerned by the 'content' i have on it. Hopefully it's nothing but, i'll have to wait and see, for now i can't put any new posts which is a bummer.

DD2 aka Debonair Dude said...

Maybe its time to bring back the Rev Wright videos?

WomanHonorThyself said...

have a super weekend!

Pasadena Closet Conservative said...

I post frequently about border jumpers and am happy I found your site! You're on my blogroll.

Brooke said...

Annex Mexico.

Might as well, at the rate we're going...

Texas Truth said...

You would get my vote for President and the votes on many of my friends. Could have have a place in your cabinet if you are elected?

C.H. said...

Hmmm...cabinet sounds good :) Would you have a place for a foreign policy expert? Haha.

Average American said...

Yes, C.H. I saw the Gibson ambush. She did quite well against that jerk. I loved that cartoon too.

MK, sorry to hear about your problems. I can't find anything objectionable about your blog to concern them, unless they are owned by a retarded leftist.

DD2, it sure is time to do something. There's a whole lot more dirt out there, we just have to uncover it and spread the word.

WHT, you have a great weekend too. It's a new weekend but---oh well. I had problems with the electronics.

PCC, I visited your site earlier today, and I will be back. I was short on time when I was there, but liked what I saw. Thanks for popping in.

Brooke, uhhhhhhh--I was beginning to think we already did.

TT, thanks very much. I'm sure there would be something for you, maybe cabinet, maybe an adviser. The best leaders are the ones who surround themselves with the best people.

C.H. You are definitely sharp when it comes to foreign policy! You seem to know at least as much as the so-called experts. I won't insult you by saying that you are way above NOBAMA on that score because that really isn't saying much.

Average American said...

Thank you everyone for dropping by and coming back during my absence. The old XP computer finally shit-the-bed. I lost everything so far, but hope to be able to salvage what I can later. I sure missed blogging. It's good to be back!
