Thousands Protest HR 4437 in Los Angeles. City Hall in background.
Los Angeles Times: 500,000 Pack Streets to Protest Immigration Bills
A crowd estimated by police at more than 500,000 boisterously marched in Los Angeles on Saturday to protest federal legislation that would crack down on undocumented immigrants, penalize those who help them and build a security wall along the U.S.’ southern border.
Spirited but peaceful marchers â€” ordinary immigrants alongside labor, religious and civil rights groups â€” stretched more than 20 blocks along Spring Street, Broadway and Main Street to City Hall, tooting kazoos, waving American flags and chanting, “SÃ se puede!” (Yes we can!).
Well, irrespective of HR 4437 which the President opposes and would probably veto and the fact that it is dead on delivery in the United States Senate for what are the folks in Los Angeles rallying?
ANSWER: OPEN BORDERS
For decades federal immigration laws have been ignored i.e. there has been minimal enforcement. As most Californians know the California-Mexico border is porous as a sieve. Millions of illegal immigrants have flooded California and other western states like Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico.
Flap is a native born California and has lived over fifty years here in the Los Angeles area. Flap has seen a transformation of southern California Many areas of Los Angeles and Orange Counties are now third world Latin American slums. This is Reconquista?
Here is how it works:
Immigrants illegally cross the Mexico- California border to find work – usually in agriculture but sometimes in menial service jobs. They are paid less than minimum wage by unscrupulous American employers. But the immigrants pay no income taxes and receive no social security benefits. However, when the wives/partners of the male illegal imigrants fall pregnant the babies thus born receive free government sponsored health care and other social welfare service benefits because they are American citizens – although his/her parent is in this country illegally.
These newly born American citizens of illegal alien parents then get free public schooling, welfare, free medical and dental care since they qulaify for social welfare programs. Remember their parents pay NO income taxes and are not on the tax rolls for medicate or social security taxes. Now, mind you the parents cannot receive any social welfare benefits but their American citizen children do. And how many hundreds of millions of dollars has the Los Angeles Unified School District spent in building new schools for these American citizen children? The Los Angeles Unified Schoold District by the way is 74 per cent Latino.
This is just one example of how the system is “worked” by the illegal alien community. There are other ways including the manufacture of false documents which entitle the parents for work permits and benefits.
After each family gains a foothold in the United States they then send their money home and more immigrants flood across the border. Now we have an estimate of over 11 million people here illegally and they are migrating to the Midwest, South and East regions of the United States.
So, what should the federal government do?
1. Secure the California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas borders with Mexico. Build walls if necessary. Use technology, but stop the indescriminate flow of illegal border crossings.
2. Sanction employers for hiring illegal immigrant workers. Fine them heavy and jail the CEO’s that allow the massive importation of cheap labor from Mexico. Allow guest workers but give them six years and they have to leave. They must register for a guest worker permit, pay federal and state taxes, social security and medicare like everyone else. These taxes will reimburse the goevernment for any services the workers receive while here. Employers must also be charged to reimburse the states for the medical, social welfare and education costs of their guest workers.
3. Change the Constitution to make it that children born of “guest workers” are not automatically granted America citizenship. Also, children of illegal immigrants shall not be granted automatic American citizenship.
4. Allow illegal immigrants already here to apply for a track toward American citizenship. They must register, be of good moral character, wait a number of years, be fluent in English and take the citizenship test – like everyone else.
But, will the Congress pass such common sense laws?
Don’t count on it!
And what will the protesters do?
Hope they create enough of a stink that the current open border policy of the United States is not changed. Then, in a few generations when all of their American born children can vote and they become the majority of voters – then have their representatives cede California back to Mexico - “Reconquista.”
Because in all reality California WILL BE MEXICO!
