As you no doubt know, illegal aliens and their handlers plan to hold their next Senate intimidation rallies on May 1, better known as the Marxist holiday of “May Day.” The May Day campaign will consist of yet more anti-law-enforcement marches and a nationwide “boycott” of shopping. The aim of the boycott is to demonstrate the purchasing power of the 11 million immigration criminals demanding amnesty. The boycott will also include a general strike by immigration criminals, who are being encouraged to skip work that day. Now it appears that illegal aliens are here to just skip the jobs that no American is willing to skip.

If the boycott and strike are successful, this means that May 1 will be A DAY WITHOUT ILLEGAL ALIENS! Lines will be shorter. Clerks will all speak English. Businesses that have been honest enough to hire legal residents will be poised to finally enjoy a competitive advantage! It will be morning again in America. Every actual American should make a point to get out and support those businesses and counteract the criminal boycott movement.

Spend like a congressman! Spend like George W. Bush! Heck, spend like Teddy Kennedy on a junket to a distillers’ convention. Spend in freedom and order in a mall or Wal-Mart near you. I hereby declare May 1 to be a national holiday -- Conservative Shopping Day.

Show the doubters that a day without illegal aliens is not a crisis, it’s just a good start. And spread the word. Forward this notice or send out your own. Let it be shouted, in clear unaccented English, from every mountaintop and blog: SPEND, GRINGOS, SPEND!

Lastly, be sure to make note of which businesses can still function on a day without illegal aliens, so that you can patronize them everyday for a long time. Let’s turn the day without illegal aliens into an everyday thing.

TO THE WAL-MART, COMRADES!
If it works, it's a Fluke.

   I don't mind imigrants, most of us are, but it's the illegal part I'm not so fond of.  Hell, I'll even settle for "learning" to speak the english language.  I can't get over these people DEMANDING amnesty, citizenship, or anything else.  Do it legally, or face the concequences.

If they are all planning on marching, isn't there supposed to be a law enforcement presence to " protect " the marchers. They could always start picking them up a few at a time starting at the rear of the column. They shouldn't notice anything until a bunch are bagged.

Just What About 'Illegal' Do They Not Understand?

by Assemblyman Ray Haynes
Posted Apr 17, 2006

Sonny Bono, in the fight over Proposition 187 (the 1994 initiative that would have rescinded welfare benefits for illegal aliens) had the best line about the debate over illegal immigration. Many charges were tossed back and forth about the initiative and the motivation of its sponsors. The response of the future congressman to those charges was always: “What is it about illegal that they don’t understand?”

Exactly!

Like many others, I watched television as the protestors waved their Mexican flags, then changed those flags to American flags, then yelled “Si Se Puede,” then yelled “Yes, We Can,” then demanded the same rights as American citizens, then said they were Americans.

Well, no, they are not. When someone breaks the laws of this country to enter it, for whatever reason, whether it is to work, or obtain free medical care, free food, welfare, a driver’s license, and reduced college tuition, they are still not Americans. We have a legally mandated process, established after years of debate, negotiations, arguments, social consensus, and legal maneuverings to determine how someone becomes a citizen. Until someone follows that process, they are not Americans, not entitled to become Americans, not entitled to claim to be Americans, and not entitled to the rights of Americans.

We are a very generous country. We allow more people than any other country in the world to come into our country legally, stay, and become naturalized citizens. We are second to none in welcoming people from all cultures to join us in the world’s common quest to extend representative government and individual liberty throughout the world. We don’t even really ask that much of people to go through the process. It may take some time, and it is usually stuck in the inevitable bureaucracy, but once someone has completed the process, they are Americans. In France, you can move to France, but you never become French. You can move to China, but you will never become Chinese. If you follow a few simple steps, you can move to the United States and become an American.

One of those steps is not sneaking through the fence, avoiding the law for ten years, receiving thousands of dollars in government aid, and then demanding amnesty for your illegal behavior. Yet, at this time, thousands of people throughout this country are demanding that we make that a legitimate way of becoming an American citizen. In essence, they want to profit from their illegal behavior.

That is just not right. Go home, follow the law, come here legally, and we will welcome you with open arms. Break our laws, and we will be justifiably outraged by your behavior. That is how it is, and how it ought to be.

The California Border Police should to do one simple thing—enforce federal immigration law, mainly because the federal government is refusing to do so. Enforcement of the law is the right thing to do. If we find that the law doesn’t work, that we need a larger labor pool, then we debate the best way to accomplish that goal. But, if we don’t enforce the laws we have now, it won’t matter what laws we have in the future. We will still fail to have an immigration policy.

The first thing that makes anyone a good American is their ability to follow the law. That is all anyone is asking these protestors to do. It is not that hard, and, if they do it, we will all be their good friends and neighbors.

I'm a little embarassed for some of the posters concerning this topic. Some of them look like the source might have vehicles up on blocks surrounding their freshly painted trailer.
I would like to think people in the calibration arena would have a little more intelligence. If you're going to address a topic that you most likely know little about (I qualify) then it might make sense to educate yourself about the facts rather than get all whipped-up on emotion. You might want to focus your energies on a 'real' issue such as the elimination of the middle-class by corporate America rather than have your attention diverted by an emotional topic during a mid-term election year.

I appreciate your comments, but please don't be embarassed for me.  I'm all for immigration, because it's one of the things that has made this country what it is; the diversity of our culture is a powerful force that most countries in the world don't have and fail to utilize it when they do.

I only want the immigrants to come here legally.  I want the government to enforce the laws on the books.  ...and I think I can say for ther majority of members on this site that that is our only complaint- they come here illegally, and now they want to be citizens.  Sorry.  Gotta follow the rules here.  There's a lot of opportunity in this country, and we're happy to share the wealth and help them get those opportunities- if they do it legally.
If it works, it's a Fluke.

I'm still gonna stick with my story....I'm NOT cleaning chickens for $10 an hour!!! :-D

So any one that arrived here before this was illegal...including our FOREFATHERS!


ELLIS ISLAND

Ellis island, c.27 acres (10.9 hectares), in Upper New York Bay, SW of Manhattan island. Government-controlled since 1808, it was long the site of an arsenal and a fort, but most famously served (1892—1954) as the chief immigration station of the United States. It is estimated that 40% of all Americans had an ancestor arrive at Ellis Island. Now part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument (see Liberty, Statue of), the island was opened to tourists in 1976. In 1990 an immigration museum was opened, and many records of immigrant arrivals have been computerized and are available there and on line.



ANGEL ISLAND
largest island in San Francisco Bay, W Calif. Explored by the Spanish in 1775, it came under U.S. control in 1851. The U.S. army used the island as a base from 1863 to 1946, and from 1955 to 1962 a radar and missile site was there. From 1910 to 1940 the island was also used to process mainly Asian immigrants to the United States, earning it the nickname "Ellis Island of the West." During World War II, enemy prisoners of war were confined on Angel Island. The island is now a state park.

  Not "anyone that arrived here before was illegal", only those who came here illegally.  All those folks that came through Ellis Island or Angel Island did it legally.  They were documented.

   I'm not condoning the land grab made by early settlers, but there is a difference (at least legally) between them and those we are discussing.  If nothing else, there was no law at the time prohibiting that form of "immigration".  Now there is. 

   The fact that I'm not willing to do a certain job for the same pay as an illegal immigrant doesn't justify that person breaking the law.   
   
   The bottom line for me is that I WANT them here, but I want it to be legally.  Immigrants are hardworking, honest people who just want a better life for their family.  Nothing wrong with that, it's the same thing I want! 

So what do we do? 

   Open the borders and let everyone in?  Probably not, there is a need to be safe, and to know who's here.  It'd also be a good idea to collect some taxes from these hardworking folks, so things can get better for all of us.  The more people there are paying taxes, the less each of us should have to pay, right?
   Maybe some of the laws could be changed to make it a little easier to immigrate.  $300-$600 (that's what I heard the cost is, but I don't know for sure) is a lot of money in some of the countries these folks come from.  If it were faster and cheaper, there would be less incentive to come here illegally, unless you have something to hide, like being a criminal or a terrorist.

 Looking at the serious side. I have seen the attempts to enter illegally, I admit it has been up here on the northern border. We have no idea how many have made it across the Great Lakes and the connecting rivers alive. All that is normally found is a cheap plastic raft, either beached onshore or washed up onshore.
 The problem is the borders are porous and people will contiue to enter illegally, we really don't have the trained man power to watch every foot of the border, and to those sneaking in the process to enter legally is to expensive and time cunsumming for the poor semi-literate peasant, all he knows is that beyound the border awaits the land of milk and honey.
 Do we change the law and let in every person seeking entry, continue the quota system or just close the borders down and let no one in ?

I think we should enforce the laws currently on the books.

We do need more manpower/technology to secure the border, but it'll still be porous enough to let 'em in if they're determined enough...  But those that do get caught after making it across need to be deported, not given a driver's license and a welfare check.
If it works, it's a Fluke.
