Illegal Aliens Must Go!

America was built by Immigrants--LEGAL immigrants. Illegal aliens have no legal or moral basis for being in America. All illegal aliens must be deported and U.S. borders must be secured to prevent more invaders from coming here!

Illegal Immigration: A Reversible Curse on America

by John W. Lillpop

Notwithstanding arguments made by liberals, big business, President Bush, and the government of Mexico, illegal immigration is a dreaded curse on America.

Illegal aliens cause or exacerbate problems involving homeland security, crime, health care costs, education, affordable housing, budget deficits, traffic congestion, global warming, dependence on foreign oil, identity theft, prison and jail populations, and obesity.

There is, however, good news: Illegal immigration can be prevented and reversed.

That would be the case if the Bush administration and Congress would simply enforcing existing laws, including deportation of those here illegally.

The benefits of enforcing existing laws include:

* Thousands of Americans killed each year by illegal aliens, including those slaughtered by drunken drivers, would still be alive;

* Homeland security would be strengthened because people of unknown character and criminal history would be removed;

* Election fraud would be reduced;

* Inmate populations at state, local, and federal penal institutions would be about 30 percent less;

* Overcrowding in classrooms would be eased, thereby improving the quality of education;

* Teachers would be freed from attending to the needs of non-English speaking aliens, again enhancing education;

* America's health care system would no longer be burdened by millions of uninsured illegal aliens unable or unwilling to pay for medical services;

* Hospitals forced to close because of freeloading illegal aliens would once again be solvent and available to meet the needs of Americans;

* Americans would be able to receive emergency care in a reasonable period of time, rather than being forced to wait for hours upon hours in emergency rooms overrun by illegal aliens;

* Less demand would ease the affordable housing crisis, resulting in lower housing costs for Americans;

* Public services would no longer be provided to aliens not entitled to such services, thereby saving taxpayers scores of billions of dollars each year;

* Fewer vehicles would be on the road, thereby easing traffic congestion;

* Fewer vehicles would result in less carbon monoxide released to the environment, which would be a positive step in reducing global warming;

* Fewer vehicles would also mean less dependence on middle east oil;

* Most felony crimes being investigated in Los Angeles would not have been committed;

* Identity theft would be less of a threat to Americans;

* Welfare and food stamp use (and fraud) would be reduced;

* Driving under the influence crimes would be reduced;

* Life threatening obesity would decline as Americans would be forced to mow their own lawns, clean their own toilets, and wash their own cars, and

* Fast food restaurants, the bane of healthy living, would no longer have slave labor available to prepare and serve junk food. As a result, meal costs would soar, prompting many Americans to resort to healthier foods.

What about the negative impact of removing 12-30 million illegal aliens from America?

Removing that many people from the American economy would unquestionably result in major interruptions and displacements.

However, on average, most illegal aliens take more than they put back into the economy; so over time, the impact would be positive.

Other payoffs for sending illegal aliens back to their nations of origin:

* Antonio Villagarosa would be picking avocados in Salinas rather than destroying the once great city of Los Angeles as it's Mayor, and

* Duyba Bush would be forced to learn proper English, rather than relying on illegal aliens to make him sound good by comparison!

That settles it: Round them up, ship them out!
