Dream Act Rejected – Personal to Latino Students

Haz clic aquí por versión español

At this moment (18 December at 1030 am) I listen to a reporter from Spanish-language network TeleMundo ask what defeat of the act means to students and parents who organized to get the act passed.

A mother angrily says, when Latinos (illegal aliens) get the vote, “the power will be in our hands”. This idea is the problem for us, citizens of the United States of America.

I say to Latino students: rejection of the act is the result of Democrat lawmakers attempting to grant unlimited amnesty to your parents and relatives who entered this country illegally. If the act were to focus on relief for students who involuntarily entered this country with their parents, citizens would more readily consider relief for these students.

However, the act serves as a means to override our immigration laws. We are a republic, a form of government that follows the rule of law. We are not a democracy, a form of government that rules by majority, otherwise known as mob rule.

A republican form of government differs from a democracy by several degrees. A republic protects the minority, whereas a democracy does not.

If you, in fact, love this country and wish to enjoy all the benefits of citizenship, then you will support the rule of law.

  1. You’re an absolute joke. No kidding.

    Is it such a horrible thing to grant amnesty? There’s been a metric shit-load of research done to show that the cost to deport an illegal immigrant is around $12,500. Hey, we’re both tax-payers, and we totally don’t mind this, right?

    And you’re absolutely-moronic counterargument? They take benefits from welfare, are taking jobs away, are too brown and the country needs to stay white, etc.

    Well, let’s think of this, asshole: What if there was an additional tax to illegal immigrants given amnesty, after there was amnesty? The government and IRS gets to take in additional tax money, at no cost to legal citizens.

    And the fact that they take away jobs? What’s wrong, dumb-asses? Are you afraid that your incompetence might actually take you off you’re fucking throne of entitlement? Yikes.

    I find this last argument hilarious: You conservatives love to talk about how awesome the capitalist system is, and how competition is what keeps Americans going. You bash socialist systems and yet, you’re afraid of competition. You feel that your kids are entitled, and hell, if there’s a kid who is the son of an illegal who is doing a ton better, fuck them. You’re kid’s white, and should be entitled to priority admission.

    Hey, if you’re afraid of added competition, word of advice: Get the fuck out of my country; the Mexican in the running for your job would be glad to deport your ass himself.

  2. Well, Carlos Sandoval, I see your “naughty words and foul-mouthed humor” are constant companions, even when you are away from your contributions to “The Pigeon Toe” podcast and blog.

    If it were possible, I would be delighted to engage you in an intelligent and productive conversation. Lacking sufficient vocabulary on your part, it would seem an impossible task.

    Nonetheless, I’ll attempt to respond with language no doubt unfamiliar to you – American English less four-letter epithets.

    First and foremost, an observation: your comments are non sequitur to my article. In language perhaps you better understand: your comments do not follow the content of my article.

    Therefore, one can only surmise you were trolling (also called ‘googling’) websites for any mention of ‘amnesty’.

    Since you reacted to my English-language version, I assume you neither read nor write Spanish.

    Counter point: non sequitur – My article says nothing about the subject.

    Counter point: non sequitur

    Counter point: non sequitur

    Counter point: non sequitur

    Point 5: Well, I tried to follow you, but to do so would resemble chasing a rabbit.
    Counter point: Perhaps you should read the article, repent from your wickedness and ask God to be merciful to you.

    A man who boastfully and proudly spews words from his mouth, words I wouldn’t even step on with good shoes, is a man whose heart is bankrupt and desperately in need of a Savior. Savior I am not, but I know the one who can change your life.

    On a more personal note, 38 years ago, I was a profane, angry man – a well-paid profane, angry man. I held a prestigious position with an aerospace company that moved me form one military establishment to another. It was at the last that a young Air Force sergeant cared enough for me to come to my home to confront me with my greatest need. He simply said to me, “You need Jesus.”

    In August 1974, Jesus became Lord of my life. He forgave me and healed me.

    Carlos Sandoval, I offer to you the same counsel: you need Jesus.

    God created a perfect world, but sin spoiled it. God sent his only natural-born son, Jesus Christ, to be atonement for your sins. The wages of sin is death and Jesus paid the price for your forgiveness and eternal life.

    I pray your tormented soul be saved and I hope to hear from you.
