Publisher’s note: Sybele Capezzutti has once again put some thoughts together and states very plainly what we are facing with regards to our porous border. For my money, we could use a lot more legal immigrants like her and a whole lot less of what has been invading and infecting our country like a viral parasite feeding off a host; oh wait…that’s what the illegals are.
Sybele Capezzutti: I've been asked why I'm against open borders and do not support Obama's views on illegal immigration being that I am an immigrant myself.
First, I am a legal immigrant that followed the law and as such it is an insult to someone like me that people that chose not to follow the law is being rewarded for their actions instead of being punished.
Second, and most important....the kind of people that resort to illegally entering or staying in the country are exactly the kind of people that I would have never associated with in my country of birth. They didn't follow the laws there, they were not educated in their own language, they had no skills to survive there, they did not contribute to society there, and they only come here because this government offers more than the government where they came from.
These are people that I would have stayed away from in my own country of birth and now I'm being told that I have to be compassionate and welcome them here?
I spent years in Florida and had very few Brazilian friends because I refused to be involved with a community of illegals that couldn't even speak and write in their own language properly, that scammed the system every way possible, they were embarrassing to me!
To the ones that support amnesty, please understand something....there are only 2 reasons why someone was not able to get a passport and/or a visa: One cannot obtain a passport by their own government if they have a criminal record, it’s that simple. And if you are able to get a passport but not a visa it's because the American Consulate has done the proper background check and either found legal reasons (criminal record) or economic reasons (lack of proof of income or ties to the country of birth) to deny the visa. And honest people who are denied a visa do not resort to entering the country illegally, that's a fact. Most of the illegals crossing the border don't even have a passport, which puts them on the first case scenario.
It's not that complicated!
And to use as a base for supporting this ludicrous immigration bill all the Irish, German and Italian immigrants of the past is not only insulting to my intelligence but plain ignorant!
Yes, they were poor immigrants, but they were LEGAL and the country wanted them here to grow both the agriculture and factory industries, we actually needed more labor at the time, and those immigrants embraced the American culture and loved this country for the opportunity they were given, something I don't see coming from illegals.
I'm sick and tired of the propaganda from the left and the tireless effort to flood America with the scum of the earth by using the compassion card!
It is a marxist strategy, no ifs or buts about it, and all of you that support this insanity are being used through your "white guilt".
Simply pathetic!Add a comment
