Great and truthful letter, keep it going….so we can keep America going!!!

NO ONE ON ANY OF THE NEWS PROGRAMS IS TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT OUR IMMIGRATION LAW. LEGAL IMMIGRATION IS ENCOURAGED AND GOOD, BUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IS AGAINST THE LAW. I’M SICK AND TIRED OF THE HALF TRUTHS ABOUT THIS LAW. IGNORANT PEOPLE ARE BOYCOTTING OUR STATE BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE THE NEWS REPORTS. THEY SHOULD LOOK INTO THE LAW AND THE REASONS FOR IT BEFORE THEY PASS JUDGEMENT. WALK IN OUR SHOES AND SEE WHAT IT’S LIKE. MY DAUGHTER-IN-LAW IS HISPANIC. HER DAD WAS BORN HERE. THEY WERE CITIZENS. HER GREAT-GRANDFATHER WAS THE FIRST SHERIFF OF MARICOPA COUNTY. I AM NOT A RACIST, BUT I OBEY THE LAW OF THE LAND AND THINK THE IMMIGRATES SHOULD ALSO. ALL OF OUR TAXES HAVE GONE UP SO AS TO GIVE THE ILLEGALS ALL OF THE SERVICES FOR FREE THAT THE REST OF US HAVE TO PAY FOR OR GO WITHOUT. WE HAVE TO PAY TO SEE THE DENTIST. THEY DON’T. WE HAVE TO PAY FOR OUR FOOD. THEY DON’T. PARTS OF THE CITY HAVE STARTED TO LOOK LIKE OLD MEXICO. THEY FLY THEIR FLAG AND SPEAK SPANISH. THEY HAVE NOT EVEN TRIED TO ASSEMILATE. EVERYTHING WE GET IS PRINTED IN SPANISH AS WELL AS ENGLISH. DO YOU THINK MEXICO WOULD DO THAT FOR US? WE ARE NOT EVEN ALLOWED TO OWN PROPERTY IN MEXICO. THE LIBERALS TELL US THEY ARE WORKING JOBS THAT AMERICANS WON’T DO. RECENTLY 300 ILLEGALS WERE ARRESTED AT A WAREHOUSE BUSINESS HERE AND THE NEXT DAY 500 AMERICANS WERE STANDING OUTSIDE TRYING TO GET A JOB. AMERICANS ARE HUNGRY SOME HOMELESS AND THEY ARE LOOKING FOR ANY KIND OF WORK. WE HAVE TO GET RID OF THE ILLEGALS.

This is a very good letter to the editor. This woman made some good points. For some reason, people have difficulty structuring their arguments when arguing against supporting the currently proposed immigration revisions. This lady made the argument pretty simple.

NOT printed in the Orange County  paper ………………..

Newspapers simply won’t publish letters to the editor which they either deem politically incorrect (read below) or which does not agree with the philosophy they’re pushing on the public. This woman wrote a great letter to the editor that should have been published; but, with your help it will get published via cyberspace! 

From: ‘David LaBonte’ 

My wife, Rosemary, wrote a wonderful letter to the editor of the OC Register which, of course, was not printed. So, I decided to ‘print’ it myself by sending it out on the Internet. Pass it along if you feel so inclined. Written in response to a series of letters to the editor in the Orange County Register: 

Dear Editor: 

So many letter writers have based their arguments on how this land is made up of immigrants.

Ernie Lujan for one, suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty because the people now in question aren’t being treated the same as those who passed through Ellis Island and other ports of entry. 

Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to people like Mr. Lujan why today’s American is not willing to accept this new kind of immigrant any longer. Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to the United States, people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in New York and be documented . Some would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground. They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times. They made learning English a primary rule in their new American households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home. 

They had waved goodbye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture. Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no labor laws to protect them. All they had were the skills and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity. 

Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out. My father fought along side men whose parents had come straight over from Germany , Italy , France and Japan .  None of these 1st generation Americans ever gave any thought about what country their parents had come from. They were Americans fighting Hitler, Mussolini and the Emperor of Japan .  They were defending the United States of America as one people. 

When we liberated France , no one in those villages were looking for the French-American or the German American or the Irish American. The people of France saw only Americans. And we carried one flag that represented one country. Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up another country’s flag and waving it to represent who they were. It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here. These immigrants truly knew what it meant to be an American. They stirred the melting pot into one red, white and blue bowl.

  
And here we are in 2009 with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same rights and privileges only they want to achieve it by playing with a different set of rules; one that includes the entitlement card and a guarantee of being faithful to their mother country. I’m sorry, that’s not what being an American is all about. I believe that the immigrants who landed on Ellis Island in the early 1900’s deserve better than that for all the toil, hard work and sacrifice in raising future generations to create a land that has become a beacon for those legally searching for a better life. I think they would be appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign country flags. 

And for that suggestion about taking down the Statue of Liberty , it happens to mean a lot to the citizens who are voting on the immigration bill. I wouldn’t start talking about dismantling the United States just yet.

KEEP THIS LETTER MOVING. FOR THE WRONG THINGS TO PREVAIL THE RIGHTFUL MAJORITY NEEDS TO REMAIN COMPLACENT AND QUIET!! 
LET THIS NEVER HAPPEN!!

I sincerely hope this letter gets read by millions of people all across the nation!!
