From a naturalized Citizen.....

This was written by a FORMER Mexican who is now a naturalized US Citizen, and I think it's a great explanation of the illegal immigration issue.

Here is the quote:

"If you had tickets to a sports event, concert, Disneyland, or for an

airline flight, and when you got to your assigned seat you found

someone else was in that seat, what would you do? You would call for a

person in charge of ticket checking and have the person in your seat

removed. You would properly be asked to show your ticket, and you

would gladly and proudly do so, for you have bought and paid for that

seat. The person in your seat would also be asked for a ticket, which

they would not be able to produce. They would be called "gate

crashers" and they would properly be removed.

Now in this huge stadium called the USA we have had (tens of) millions

of gate crashers. We have been asking security to check for tickets

and remove the gate crashers. We have been asking security to have

better controls in checking at the door. We have asked security to

lock the back doors. Security has failed us. They are still looking

the other way. They are afraid to ask to see the tickets. Many people

say there is unlimited seating, and whether there is or not, no one

should be allowed in for free while the rest of us pay full price!

In "section AZ", of "Stadium USA", we have had enough of the failures

of Security. We have decided to do our own ticket checking, and

properly remove those who do not have tickets. Now it seems very

strange to me that so many people in the other 49 "sections", and even

many in our own "section" do not want tickets checked, or even to be

asked to show their ticket! Even the head of Security is chastising

us, while not doing his own job which he has sworn to do.

My own ticket has been bought and paid for, so I am proudly going to

show it when asked to do so. I have a right to my seat, and I want the

gate crashers to be asked to show their tickets too. The only reason

that I can imagine anyone objecting to being asked for their ticket is

that they are in favor of gate crashing, and all of the illegal

activities that go with it, such as drug smuggling, gang wars, murder,

human smuggling for profit, and many more illegal and inhumane acts

that we are trying to prevent with our new legislation.

Is that what I am hearing from all of the protestors such as Phoenix

Mayor Gordon, US Rep. Grijalva, even President Obama? If you are not

in favor of showing tickets, (proof of citizenship, passport, green

card, or other legal document) when asked, as I would do proudly, then

you must be condoning those illegal activities."

*by the way....cut and paste....I'm not all back yet......*

I definitely agree with this post. I too am a naturalized citizen of the USA.

When I went to the Oath of Citizenship ceremony; I wore my Class A uniform.

I remember the official who administered the Oath of Citizenship to all of us new US citizens; paused to recognize me.
I nodded back in acknowledgment.

Following the ceremony 3-4 other individuals approached me and identified themselves as servicemen as well. They too had intended to wear their dress uniforms; but, be it laundry, travel or other circumstances, they had been unable to do so. I cannot remember their branches of service anymore; but, I think it would have looked pretty cool to have 4 or 5 of us standing at attention side by side.

I visit your blog weekly. Keep Howling At The Moon. Hooah!

We just returned today from a visit to Savannah Georgia. We had our 4 legged family members with us and were chased out of a fountain are by an officious "african american" official who advised us that "no dogs are allowed in the fountain area". We complied and were approached by a young man who directed us to another "pet friendly" area a short block away. We thanked him and his response was: "Thank the US Marine Corps". I responded with "Semper Fi" and he insisted on shaking my hand. This old dogface soldier was proud to do so. Is there yet hope for our homeland?

Great post. And yes, ΛΕΟΝΙΔΑΣ, there is indeed hope.
