People who enter US illegally threaten American culture

Americans, are you outraged by people living in or entering our country illegally, mainly Hispanics from Mexico and Central America? Now President Barack Obama wants to bring in thousands of Syrians.

These millions of illegals crowd out citizens as many of them take advantage of our benefits, even without legal status. They use our schools, our hospitals, and, in many cases, our welfare and social services, all at enormous cost to us.

Equally important, they maintain their own culture, which is often at great odds with the culture that built and maintains our nation. Thus they contribute to the changing in the character of American civilization. Illegals invest in a form of apartheid, quite unlike prior immigrants who created this nation by rapidly assimilating into American culture.

The army of illegals is a demographic time bomb, one that is more explosive mathematically than even the critics of illegal immigration can imagine. The result will be an upcoming demographic surprise that will eventually multiply geometrically the number and political power of illegals. It will be due to the fact that all children born to illegals on these shores are incomprehensibly considered citizens of the United States from the moment of their birth.

A country that cannot control its borders will lead to a catastrophic disaster.

The Truth

Denny:
The Syrians coming here would not be illegals, they would be vetted prior to settlement. If you bother to do a little research, immigrant communities go to work right away to support their families. Before you come back with the usual right-wing conspiracy theories, look at those who came here from Vietnam and Somalia. They have done pretty well for themselves and the communities. Open your eyes and heart a little, you will learn something.

I'm sure bigots and right wingers said the same thing when your ancestors came to America.

I assume the person who wrote this is a Native American. Those are the only people who can truly claim to be "legal". Most of us are descendants of people who came here without visas or vetting.
