Illigal Border Crossings -Why?

by James Jett

When I went outside to water the plants in the front of the house this morning, I heard on the radio my wife was listen to, that they had raided the area where illegal aliens reside and arrested some illegals. The reporter said that the people here in the city of Painesville, Ohio now knows that they can expect ICE to show up any time because they are here illegally. The number arrested, (I believe) is six and the reporter said the others are held up in homes. When the reporters ask them if they plan to leave the area, they said no,” we don’t plan to leave the area or the country”. What loyal support these folks enjoy, being a Christian I can tell you I would not fine this much support in a church where I have been a member for years. And I am not here illegally.

With the support of many groups and the courage to cross the border when they know other have died attempting the same journey, inform me that this is a crazy, dangers and (I believe) sinful effort to bring people into this country that will give elected politicians the power they need to do the bidding of the rich and powerful while thumbing their noses at the people that voted them into office. Why let these human beings take this risk some time with children crossing the border when they could back a bus up to the gate and give the order “get a board” and the bus would be packed with people wanting to come to America? I wonder, can there be a reason, just got to be a reason, the people in this country that claim to love these immigrants and open safe havens for them once they arrive, permit them to risk everything to get here! I just don’t have the answer, that’s why I asked other that sell houses, build building and etc. —-a group of people I share e-mail with and talk by phone with, at times. Why let people come here illegally? I get different answers but all the answers mean the same thing that I sum up in one word (control) they need to retain control on them so they can be insured of their serves for many years. Now it starts to make sense, when I remember the lady from Porta Rico that came to Cleveland to get out the Latinos vote in the last election. She said on TV that day speaking to the small group around her, “You must go vote, the problem is we don’t vote”

With the support from citizens and non citizens in this country plus the liberal news media they have a large number of Senators and Congressman working hard to provide them with everything from welfare to education, and a job guarantee as long as they report to work – – -unless they are protesting for the right to become citizens or some other civic duty like demanding medical and education benefits that American Citizens don’t want or want use. Without an education, citizenship or legal status they can move the National elected Government to work hard to meet all their needs and the needs of they love ones. All because they work hard and do jobs citizens will not do and I guess they become foremen because American refuse to, started businesses that we fail or refuse to start, get financing that we fail to qualify for and take over a neighborhood that is unoccupied or only citizens live and work there. Yet I am encouraged once I recover from despair, and look at what a non citizen can accomplish in this great country and go to work knowing that I, as a Citizen can, and maybe must, Accomplish twice as much living in these United States.

Good News and Immigration

by James Jett

Over the weekend almost every news cast had a report on the progress, or lack of progress, depending on the news cast I listening to or watched. I haven’t had time to read the news papers, but will get to them later this week. Then I heard the Senators debating discussing and sometime promoting the ideal of giving legal status to the illegal aliens in this country. “This country’s food and housing depend on these people” says some of the politicians, while others argue that “we can’t send them back to their own country, because the public don’t want to see them rounded up and forced to return home.”
At that very moment I became aware that the elected officials are very selective about obeying the “public”: when the will of the public and the politics of the elected officials are the same they insist on obeying the public, but when the overwhelming majority want the illegal aliens to return home and the borders secured, the people they elected (the politician) use every trick possible to avoid doing the will of the people, by claiming they (the politicians) know what’s best for the people that voted them into office. When I see and hear this level of concern for the United States coming from the elected and appoint officials plus the people elected in Mexico advising this country on procedures pertaining to our immigration policies, I wonder where is the concern for the poor Mexican people that have not yet made it across the border? Maybe they have a NAAMP (National Association For The Advancement of Mexican People), and maybe chapters in every country is working 24/7 to improve the life and livelihood for the people in Mexico waiting to cross the border into the greatest country presently on planted-earth. If they have search organizations why don’t the Media report about them and tell people in this country to join or start a chapter. I would be glad to join and work hard to improve Mexico to the point it look and live like America. Then all the people would be trying to return home, but would encounter a problem because millions of American would be going to Mexico on vacation and failing to return to this country. Now prosperous and enjoying low unemployment, Mexico would demand that the US Citizens return home and respect Mexico’s immigration policies.

Since I am not comfortable depending on slave label to keep this country the best place for law abiding human beings to live, I wonder what could one brag about when discussing the immigrants. And three things came to mind, first I remembered a conversation with the cable man about four months ago when he came to check on the TV because we could not get some stations on screen. After checking the cable and TV inside he said the problem was outside in the connection box on the pole, as I let the garage door up I noticed it had started to rain — and said to the Cable man “ I hope it stay light like this until you finish” He said “this is nothing “ and I quickly stated “you should not complaint because they will say that your job is a job that Americans don’t want to do”— “that’s what they say when they want to take your job”. He said they are already taking over, in Painesville (30 miles East of Cleveland) they have took over a whole section you see nothing but Spanish restaurants and hear Spanish music”. Second, In down town Cleveland the Korean people have opened stores and shops . I am told it is more than a six block area. And third in a Suburb in New York the Spanish speaking people have more than a block of the main street down town occupied in retail stores, and yet not a single one have been elected to office. The Mayor (who is a White male) stated he welcome this type of investment and will work to get some Hispanics elected to office. This is good news because I am working to start and expand businesses in my family, so I will visit some of these locations.

Immigration, lies and truths

by James Jett

The elected officials are trying to agree on the bill that will enable this country to control immigration and secure our borders, hopefully, on both the Mexican and Canadian Border. If they succeed it could mean we are finally safe from people coming to this country and staying without anyone knowing their names or why they are here. Any bill passed by the legislator and signed by the President should mandate a hundred percent reduction in the illegal border crossings. This can be accomplished by having stiff fines both financial and a long confinement.

But first they have to pass the bill and the President have to sign it: to get to that point the legislators will hear from many concerned citizens and probably, non-citizens, all telling them their reasons for wanting a law that control our borders and not give amnesty to illegal aliens. Others telling them that the people in this country illegally is hard working and add value to our economy , theyfore should have a pass to citizenship. Still others will say that illegals crowd our school, overrun the emergency rooms at hospitals and clinics. Cost the tax payers money due to increase costs in jails and police service. Many arrive with decease and infect the local school children while the illegals act as carriers. These are some of the problems we will face for the next fifty years.

Then what? Foreign born will have increased to the majority and will start to make changes in the financial system, with little or no love for this country and no respect for it’s laws, I am sad to think what decisions they will make about the Social Security System and other in-place benefits such as retirements and other non-taxed old age insurance. To get the new, but short time citizen,s social security up to a livable monthly income they could means-test the Social Security or redistribute the retirement and pension funds. The fact that they should be protected by the laws on the books will not mean much to some one who came here illegally in the first place. If a national law can be broken to get them in without any enforcement who will be around to stop them from making the changes that will provide them a living wage and retirement. The answer is no one! That’s why we should let the illegals return home though one gate and hire the poor and people leaving the jails each day and pay them a livable income. If we screen these groups and place them in jobs and provide good on-the-job training you will get people that is well documented and have an understanding that one should obey the laws. It will be a lot less costly on our economy plus far less taxing on the law enforcement and school systems.
