More on immigration

--posted by Tony Garcia on 5/19/2006

You know, it is not only the United States that is dealing with illegal immigration. I had a friend of mine tell me several weeks ago to watch the Canary Islands. Sure enough this pops up.
Spain has put the last touches to initiatives, including a strengthened presence in Africa, to try to stem the swelling tide of immigrants from the continent heading for its shores.

The government's plan was agreed as it was announced that a total of 656 African illegal immigrants had arrived in Spain's Canary Islands in the space of 24 hours.

In Madrid Deputy Prime Minister Maria-Teresa Fernandez de la Vega said after a cabinet meeting she would be going to Brussels next week to discuss the issue with, among others, European Commission President Jose Manuel Durao Barroso.

She said that "more Europe" had to be one of the weapons in the battle against would-be illegal immigration.
Battle? That is, well, war-talk, isn't it? So other countries are in a battle while the United States is, uh, racist in fighting illegal immigration?

In the meantime our shortsighted politicians (and their supporters) continue pandering to non-citizens, to illegals at the expense of citizens.
The Senate voted yesterday to allow illegal aliens to collect Social Security benefits based on past illegal employment -- even if the job was obtained through forged or stolen documents.
The Ensign amendment was defeated on a 50-49 vote.

"We all know that millions of undocumented immigrants pay Social Security and Medicare taxes for years and sometimes decades while they work to contribute to our economy," said Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican.

"The Ensign amendment would undermine the work of these people by preventing lawfully present immigrant workers from claiming Social Security benefits that they earned before they were authorized to work in our community," he said. "If this amendment were enacted, the nest egg that these immigrants have worked hard for would be taken from them and their families."
The NEST EGG? C'mon. Let them come here LEGALLY and we can talk about their benefits. So long as they are here illegally they should be denied all benefits...especially retirement supplemental income. So long as anyone uses forged documents to enter a program or a job they should not be allowed to retain the benefits of those programs or jobs. That includes illegal aliens.

Worse than that is the idea that English as the official language of the United States is "racist".
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid called a proposal to make English the official language "racist" on the Senate floor yesterday.

"This amendment is racist. I think it's directed basically to people who speak Spanish," the Democrat said during the already tense debate over immigration reform.
Shut up. It is simply saying that we do not want to be another Canada. We need a common language so that our forms do not have to be in multiple versions.

Said it before, will say it again...LEGAL immigration is what this country is about. We cannot allow any incentives for illegal immigration to continue. Illegal immigration is a problem...and a security risk. We cannot continue to coddle the illegal immigrants and the sympathizers of these criminals.
