Mike Gallagher, syndicated Radio Talk Show Host, has today jumped on the Rubio Band Wagon to allow 10-20 million foreigners who have invaded our borders to stay here, and stay in front of those who have been waiting for years to enter our Country legally.
Of course, Mr. Gallagher avoided giving an answer to his audience which addresses the most fundamental question which needs to be answered. How is it in the general welfare of the United States to allow 10-20 million foreigners who have invaded our borders to stay here who, for the most part, are uneducated, impoverished, many of whom are carriers of infectious and/or communicable disease and do not embrace our nation’s customs and culture and as statistics show, will mostly wind up on a federal or state welfare program? How does this promote the general welfare of the United States?
Tell us Mr. Gallager, why is it in the general welfare of the United States, to allow this group which has invaded our borders to remain in our country and be given special treatment while there are so many foreigners waiting for years to enter our country legally who are highly educated, financially self sufficient, are not sickly and do embrace our countries customs and culture?
In answer to your red herring charge, Mr. Gallager, that we can’t round these invaders up and deport them, what we can do is:
Make it a criminal offense to knowingly hire an illegal alien and strictly enforce that punishment!
When identifying a foreigner who has entered our country illegally, throw them in jail for at least six months doing hard labor to earn their food and shelter and them deport them.
Deny the children of illegal aliens access to our nation’s public school system and every federal and State welfare program.
Deny illegal aliens and their children accessed to our nation’s health care delivery system except in life or death situation.
Finally, let us take the advice of one of our nation’s founding fathers regarding immigration:
**Mr. BURKE *thought it of importance to fill the country with useful men, such as farmers, mechanics, and manufacturers, and, therefore, would hold out every encouragement to them to emigrate to America. This class he would receive on liberal terms; and he was satisfied there would be room enough for them, and for their posterity, for five hundred years to come. There was another class of men, whom he did not think useful, and he did not care what impediments were thrown in their way; such as your European merchants, and factors of merchants, who come with a view of remaining so long as will enable them to acquire a fortune, and then they will leave the country, and carry off all their property with them. These people injure us more than they do us good, and, except in this last sentiment, I can compare them to nothing but leeches. They stick to us until they get their fill of our best blood, and then they fall off and leave us. I look upon the privilege of an American citizen to be an honorable one, and it ought not to be thrown away upon such people. There is another class also that I would interdict, that is, the convicts and criminals which they pour out of British jails. I wish sincerely some mode could be adopted to prevent the importation of such; but that, perhaps, is not in our power; the introduction of them ought to be considered as a high misdemeanor. *** ___ Representative BURKE during our Nations` first debate on a RULE OF NATURALIZATION, FEB. 3RD, 1790
We are here today and gone tomorrow, but what is most important is what we do in between, and is what our children will inherit and remember us by.
