Are these facts about illegal immigration?

  1. My gut says that most of this is probably true...


    If this doesn't open your eyes... nothing will!

    From the L.A. Times

    1. 40% of all workers in L.A. County ( L.A. County has 10.2 million
    are working for cash and not paying taxes. This was because they are
    predominantly illegal immigrants, working without a green card.

    2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.

    3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal

    4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien
    Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.

    5. Nearly 25% of all inmates in California detention centers are
    nationals here illegally.

    6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in

    7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most
    likely illegal aliens from south of the border.

    8. Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.

    9. 21 radio stations in L.A. are Spanish speaking.

    10. In L.A. County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak
    Spanish. (There are 10.2 million people in L.A. County).

    (All the above from the Los Angeles Times)

    Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on

    Over 70% of the United States' annual population growth (and over 90%
    of California , Florida , nd New York ) results from immigration.

    The cost of immigration to the American taxpayer in 1997 was, (after
    subtracting taxes immigrants pay), a NET $70 BILLION/year, [Professor
    Huddle, Rice University ]. The lifetime fiscal impact (taxes paid minus
    services used) for the average adult Mexican immigrant is a NEGATIVE
    29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.
    If they can come to this country to raise Hell and demonstrate by the
    thousands, WHY can't they take charge over the corruption in their own
    We are a bunch of fools for letting this continue.


    On February 15, 1998, the U.S. and Mexican soccer teams met at the Los
    Angeles Coliseum.
    The crowd was overwhelmingly pro-Mexican even though most lived in this
    country. They booed during the National Anthem and U.S. flags were held
    upside down. As the match progressed, supporters of the U.S. team were
    insulted, pelted with projectiles, punched and spat upon. Beer and trash
    thrown at the U.S. players before and after the match.
    The coach of the U.S. team, Steve Sampson said, "This was the most
    painful experience I have ever had in this profession."

    Did you know that immigrants from Mexico and other non-European countries
    can come to this country and get preferences in jobs, education, and
    government contracts. It's called affirmative action or racial privilege.
    Emperor of Japan or the President of Mexico could migrate here and
    be eligible for special rights unavailable for Americans of European

    Corporate America has signed on to the idea that minorities and third
    world immigrants should get special, privileged status. Some examples are
    Exxon, Texaco, Merrill Lynch, Boeing, Paine Weber, Starbucks and many more.


    Did you know ... that Mexico regularly intercedes on the side of the
    defense in criminal cases involving Mexican nationals?

    Did you know ... that Mexico has NEVER extradited a Mexican national
    accused of murder in the U.S. in spite of agreements to do so? According
    to the
    L.A. Times, Orange County , California is home to 275 gangs with 17,000
    members, 98% of which are Mexican and Asian. How's your county doing?

    According to a New York Times article dated May 19, 1994, 20 years after
    the great influx of legal immigrants from Southeast Asia, 30% are still on
    welfare compared to 8% of households nationwide.
    A Wall Street Journal editorial dated December 5, 1994 quotes law
    enforcement officials as stating that Asian mobsters are the "greatest
    challenge the country
    faces." Not bad for a group that is still under 5% of the population.

    Is education important to you? Here are the words of a teacher who spent
    over 20 years in the Los Angeles School system. "Imagine teachers in
    containing 30-40 students of widely varying attention spans and motivation,
    many of whom aren't fluent in English. Educators seek learning materials
    likely to reach the majority of students and that means fewer words and
    math problems and more pictures and multicultural references."


    I remember hearing about the immigrants that came through Ellis Island .
    They wanted to learn English. They wanted to breathe free. They wanted
    become Americans. Now, far too many immigrants come here with demands.
    demand to be taught in their own language. They demand special
    privileges ... affirmative action. They demand ethnic studies that
    glorify their

    NOW ...

  2. While terrorist attacks from radical Islam are a serious matter to be dealt with, they pale in comparison to what illegal immigration will do/is doing to this country.

  4. Bush wants us to cut the amount of gas we use. The best way to stop
    using so
    much gas is to deport 11 million illegal immigrants! That would be 11
    million less people using our gas. The price of gas would come down.

    Bring our troops home from Iraq to guard the border. When they catch an
    illegal immigrant crossing the border, hand him a canteen, rifle and
    ammo and ship him to Iraq. Tell him if he wants to come to America then
    must serve a tour in the military.
    Give him a soldier's pay while he's there and tax him on it. After his
    he will be allowed to become a citizen since he defend ed this country.
    will also be registered to be taxed and be a legal patriot. This option
    probably deter illegal
    immigration and provide a solution for the troops in Iraq and the aliens

    trying to make a better life for themselves. If they refuse to serve,
    them to Iraq anyway, but without the canteen, rifle or ammo. Problem
  5. It seems that many people have forgotten but, most of the Mexicans crossing the border are indigenous people of this continent. Also, I do not recall guys on the Mayflower asking for permission to land here, settle and take over this continent from the natives. And let's not forget the numerous treaties signed by our government with many tribes in which their lands were never to be taken over by the government and colonists. Well, we all know how that ended don't we?
    It may sound harsh, but they are just re-populating the land that was theirs to begin with. :D :D :D :D :D

    disclaimer: I am not Mexican in any way shape or form. (As a matter of fact I am as white as they come). :D
  6. So I guess we are supposed to be asleep at the wheel like the indians and simply let them "take it back". Screw that. (And I'm as much a mutt as anyone. Like many people in my area I had relatives on both sides of the "Trail of Tears".)

  7. Kinda puts NAFTA in perspective though.

    If you were dumb enough to think it would somehow, equalise the american continent's economic disparities....rather, than hand more power to the same people already running the show.
  8. The indigenous people of this continent invaded this continent from Asia.

    I don't remember them having to ask if they could come here and
    kill and eat all the poor innocent buffalo.

    BTW, most of the people coming across the border are doing it illegally.

    Did the indigenous people have a country before the White Man came?

    Hell no. They were too busy smoking loco weed and taking psilocybin.

    (Psilocybe mexicana).

    Now days they just drink themselves to Death.
  9. Silly argument, but one I have heard Mexicans use.

    We now have two soveriegn countries. The past is the past. Mexico is using the US as their escape valve for excess population. We get their poor, uneducated and often criminal elements and they avoid revolution. It's ridiculous. But probably NOTHING can be done.

    Religion, culture and lack of education means the Mexicans will probably continue to multiply like rabbits. What's to be done??


  10. I read somewhere that around 50% of new pregnancies are of Mexican origin.

    Illegal Mexicans should immediately be given citizenship and a draft
    for the military should start immediately. Especially for those just
    given new citizenship. In fact, we could make it a requirement for
    citizenship. Or they can be thrown in jail or put on a workfarm.

    I wonder how many would be willing to come across the border then.
