Like it or not, this is what illegal immigration is and why none of us should condemn Arizona for wanting to stop the problem in their own state. "Illegal" means what it means -- that it is against the law. Time to call a criminal a criminal.
Recently large demonstrations have taken place across
the country protesting the fact that Arizona is finally addressing its own problems with illegal immigration.
Certain people are angry that Arizona has chosen to protect its own borders, which might make it harder to sneak into this country, and once here, stay indefinitely.
Let's say I break into your house. Let's say that when you discover me in your house,
you insist that I leave.
But I say, "No! I like it here. It's better than my house. I've made all the beds, washed the dishes, did the laundry,and swept the floors. I've done all the things you don'tlike to do. I'm hard-workingand honest"...
(except for when I broke into your house).
My husband will do all of your yard work becausehe is also hard-working and honest (except for that breaking in part).
According to the protesters:
You are Required to let me stay in your house... You are Requiredto feed me... You are Required to add me to your family's insurance plan... You are Required to educate my kids... You are Required to provide other benefits to me & to my family.
If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my friends who will picket yourhouse carrying signs that proclaim my RIGHT to be there.
It's only fair, after all, because you have a nicer house than I do, and I'm just trying to better myself. I'm a hard-working and honest, person, except for well, you know, I did break into your house.
And, what a deal it is for me!!!
I live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the actual cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of cold, uncaring, selfish, prejudiced, and bigoted behavior.
