Whether 12 million illegal aliens or 20 million illegal aliens live, work and play in our country—we law-abiding American citizens grow tired of the excuses and platitudes for their jumping our borders. They excuse themselves by saying, “I broke your laws to come here for a better life.”
They broke our laws in order to jump in front of the line of 10 million people waiting patiently to be processed into this country legally.
In other words, “I became a criminal by crossing your borders, but I want you to pay for my children’s education, their health care and I need food stamps to assist me in living illegally in your country.”
We, the lawful citizens of America, no longer find your excuses palpable, comforting or cogent. If you come here for a better life, why don’t you stay where you come from and create a better life by your lawful actions to make your own country better? How about standing in line for lawful entry?
We resent our language being changed to fit your language. We sicken at our culture being forced to change to accommodate your culture. We tire of you calling us “racists” and “xenophobes” because you broke our laws.
We find it distasteful that you birth your babies in our country and expect us to give you instant citizenship and we must pay for your babies. It really sucks!
Another reader said, “I hope this explains some of the anger that is being seen in this country right now over the entire illegal immigration debacle. The American public is tired of being axed to death to provide services to a group of people who have NO right to be in this country in the first place. We are tired of making accommodations for people who do not respect the border, laws, traditions or the language of our homeland.
“We are tired of being told we are prejudiced and bigoted because we expect these people to follow the same rules our parents and grandparents followed in order to earn American citizenship. We are tired of walking into a store or calling a service center and being unable to converse with the clerk because they haven't bothered to learn the primary (at least for the moment) language spoken in the country they have chosen to live in. We are tired of having to learn to speak a FOREIGN language in order to get a job in America. We are fed up with having our elected 'representatives' refuse to listen to our demands for secure borders and immigration enforcement.
“We are tired of having some city leaders decide that the laws that govern the rest of the entire country do not apply to them. These sanctuary cities disobey those laws and still receive our tax money from the federal government. We want sane immigration laws but we want enforcement of the existing laws first. We don't want to have to compete with people who should not even be here for jobs and services. We are tired of waiting fourteen hours in the hospital emergency room while illegal aliens are receiving services for free that American citizens are expected to pay for.
“We are tired of being preyed upon by criminal illegal aliens and illegal alien gangs who then run back to Mexico (which harbors them and often will not send them back to face criminal prosecution). We are tired of Mexico (and Latin America) exporting it's poverty to our country and then living on the funds sent back to them from America.
“We are tired of Mexico refusing to do anything to improve the life of it's own citizens despite having two beautiful coastlines and more oil resources than Alaska. As long as American politicians refuse to stand up for America's right to have secure borders, this chaos will continue and Mexico will never become a country it's citizens want to live in.
“Basically it boils down to fundamental unfairness, systemized inequities being forced down our throats. We've had enough and will not stand for it any longer. That is the message that I hope will be heard by our elected representatives.”
