That was then…
Ellis Island in New York Harbor was the gateway for millions of immigrants to the United States, as the site of the nation’s busiest immigration station between 1892 to 1954.
|How other countries treat you if you are there illegally:
- IF YOU CROSS THE NORTH KOREAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU GET 12 YEARS HARD LABOR
- IF YOU CROSS THE IRANIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU ARE DETAINED INDEFINITELY.
- IF YOU CROSS THE AFGHAN BORDER ILLEGALLY, YOU GET SHOT.
- IF YOU CROSS THE SAUDI ARABIAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE JAILED.
- IF YOU CROSS THE CHINESE BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU MAY NEVER BE HEARD FROM AGAIN.
- IF YOU CROSS THE VENEZUELAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE BRANDED A SPY AND YOUR FATE WILL BE SEALED.
- IF YOU CROSS THE CUBAN BORDER ILLEGALLY YOU WILL BE THROWN INTO POLITICAL PRISON TO ROT.
BUT WHEN YOU CROSS THE U.S. BORDER ILLEGALLY TODAY YOU GET:
- A JOB,
- DRIVERS LICENSE,
- SOCIAL SECURITY CARD,
- FOOD STAMPS,
- CREDIT CARDS,
- SUBSIDIZED RENT OR A LOAN TO BUY A HOUSE,
- FREE EDUCATION,
- FREE HEALTH CARE,
- A LOBBYIST IN WASHINGTON
- BILLIONS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF PUBLIC DOCUMENTS PRINTED IN YOUR LANGUAGE
- AND THE RIGHT TO CARRY YOUR COUNTRY’S FLAG WHILE YOU PROTEST THAT YOU DON’T GET ENOUGH RESPECT
Now for those people of late who want to equate Ellis Island to the over 20 million people who we currently have in our country, who are here illegally; and who want to call anyone who objects to illegal immigration racist, they are either very ignorant of our history, or they are very dumb or both!!!
You want to know why our nation is going bankrupt today?
JOE LEGAL vs. JOSE ILLEGAL
You have two families: “Joe Legal” and “Jose Illegal”.
Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California.
Joe Legal works in construction has a Social Security Number and makes $25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.
Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash “under the table”.
Ready? Now pay attention…
- Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week, or $52,000.00 per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal taxes. Joe Legal now has $31,231.00.Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.00 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has $31,200.00.

Joe Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, etc.Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month.
Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after work.Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.
Joe Legal’s and Jose Illegal’s children both attend the same school.

Jose Illegal’s children have an after school ESL program.
Joe Legal’s children go home.
Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.
Now what is wrong with this picture folks?
So the obvious question is, are our politicians really that dumb, or do they have a hidden agenda?
If your answered is yes to the latter of the two above questions, then you are correct. A good many of our politicians do have a globalist agenda, and they make no secret about it either, and they include both Democrats and Republicans too.
Among our more recent presidents who are on board with the international bankers, they include former presidents George Bush Sr.; Bill Clinton; George Bush Jr.; and not to forget the current guy who is sitting in the White House, who is himself an illegal alien, Barack Hussein Obama; and folks, let’s be clear, their agenda is to dissolve our sovereignty, undermine our U.S. Constitution, and join us first into the North American Union; and then into this coming One World government, which they call the New World Order!
I’m not at all in favor of this happening, and our giving up our sovereignty, and I’ll wager most of you feel the same way!
So with that said, why are we paying this people in Washington DC to ruin our country?
Let’s take back our government, and kick these bums and traitors out!!!
Ask me some day, and I’ll tell you how I really feel. 🙂
Therein ends my soapbox speech for today.
This lady, in her letter to the editor (see below), which never made it to the paper, said it pretty good I think.

GOD BLESS AMERICA LAND THAT I LOVE
|ORANGE COUNTY (CALIFORNIA) NEWSPAPER-New Immigrants
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
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:
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 good bye 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 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.
I sincerely hope this letter gets read by millions of people all across the nation!!!
