A Street Full of Latinos'

Monday's rally/protest in the streets of America was a show of unity. This unity was comprised of legal and illegal immigrants, all fighting for one thing: To ensure that the illegal ones are put to the head of the line at the immigration offices.

Never mind that the aliens are on our grounds because they chose to come here in an illegal manner. Never mind that the illegals are cramping our healthcare facilities, receiving free services for their ailments. Never mind the fact the illegals are taking America's good paying jobs, and driving wages for the rest of us down sharply. Never mind that those who used to have these good paying jobs are now forced to choose another career because of employers demand for cheap labor. Never mind that Snicker Bush is pro-corporation, and is waging an effort to appease the corporations by giving them cheap labor, which in turn gives them higher profits.

Why won't our Government listen to the citizens who voted them into office? What will it take for our voices to be heard? From all polls taken to this point, the majority of Americans want first, and foremost a secure border by land and sea. Post 9/11 thinking only backs up this demand. There should be no reason, nor should there be any thought of going around this demand. By leaving our borders porous, without additional funding to speed up the process of hiring more border agents and technology to prevent illegal crossings is inexcusable.

Secondly, we want the illegals who are here to be rounded up and deported in a quick and decisive manner. No ifs, ands or buts. Get them out of here now. As I wrote in a previous blog, the Government has missed its golden moment to show us that they indeed are serious about who comes into our country and who does not. With millions of Latinos' lining the streets, rallying for their cause to keep illegals in America, there should have been National Guard and ICE representatives there taking names and handcuffing those who don't belong here.

The lack of enforcement is a telling tale. Our government doesn't care about us in the middle class or the poor Americans. They exists for corporations and big business, and will provide the world for them with increasing consequences for the rest of us. Our backs have been broken. Oil companies receiving record profits, with tax cuts still being given to them, even though gas prices are at an all-time high. Now, with little being done to curb the raping of our land by cheap labor, we stand to lose alot more. Gloves should come off America. It is time to fight for what we have left. Call your representatives and let them know how you feel. Tell them that our beloved country is headed for disaster if our borders are not secured. Tell them that your vote will go to only the ones who promise to protect us.
