I just read an article describing how another university is applying politically correct concepts to describe students who are in the United States illegally.
The University of Maryland is implementing new guidelines to assure that the university creates a “welcoming environment” for undocumented students. Following is a quote from the piece:
Notably, the list (which is also available as a flyer) promotes “inclusive language” because “the term ‘illegal alien’ can make students feel unwelcome.” In place of “illegal alien,” UMD suggests alternative terms such as “undocumented student,” “undocumented immigrant,” “people without documents,” or “people without legal status.”
I’m only speaking for myself, but I don’t think that I’m the only citizen who is disturbed by the acquiescence that our government and institutions are showing to ILLEGAL ALIENS.
Yes, I said it. They ARE illegal. They didn’t enter the United States legally, therefore they are here illegally. Perhaps the snowflake population would prefer that we call them “persons of questionable legality” or some other euphemism as long as it omits the “illegal” reference.
To reiterate: They didn’t enter the United States legally, so they are here illegally.
What is so hard to understand about that? There shouldn’t even be a question. By accepting illegals and affording them (practically) all of the rights and privileges of a citizen, we’re essentially awarding them a de facto citizenship in every respect except the documentation.
Documents? What documents? “They don’ need no stinkin’ documents.”
They’re even voting! How many is still in question. Some say as many as 3 million. But, it’s almost certain that illegals did vote — and in significant numbers. Whether it was three million or not is another question.
A Rasmussen Reports poll earlier this year found that 53% of the Democratic Party supports letting illegals vote, even though it’s against the law. It’s pretty clear why – they expect illegals to vote for democrats.
I’m primarily talking about those illegals that have flooded across our southern border.
The snowflake community brands those of us who believe that the illegals should NOT be here as “racists.” But that’s not even close to the truth; it’s just one more superfluous flashing of the race card. I don’t care if the illegal is whiter (more Caucasian) than I am, if he or she didn’t go through the immigration procedures already in place to process immigrants, they are here ILLEGALLY.
And I understand that many (even most) of them are merely trying to find a better life for themselves and their families and I sympathize with that goal, but sneaking across a border and hiding from immigration authorities isn’t a part of our immigration processing, it is attempting to evade the law.
I don’t hold any animosity against Spanish-speaking people, in fact, most that I’ve had any experience with have been honorable, hard-working people. I welcome them as neighbors, co-workers, and friends – as long as they’re here legally.
The problem is that their sheer numbers have overwhelmed many of our infrastructure systems and in many cases, are taking services away from real citizens. There are limits to what the country’s taxpayers can spend on our welfare funding.
In 2010, the average illegal household received about $24,721 in government benefits and services while paying some $10,334 in taxes. This equates to a deficit of about $14,387 per household. Who pays for this? We do; the taxpayers. And if the democrats (and Republican RINOS) have their way, amnesty would provide illegal households with access to another over 80 means-tested welfare programs like Obamacare, Social Security, and Medicare. That deficit would soar.
Our current Immigration and Naturalization Act (INA) provides for an annual limit of 675,000 permanent immigrants (with some exceptions). There are also classes of lawful permanent residents and temporary admissions. So, we’re probably bringing around a million LEGAL immigrants into the country each year. Those limits are designed to be manageable and the majority of those who are admitted legally have gainful employment or some other primary reason for their admission.
So, how can the liberal democrats justify quietly accepting millions of illegal intruders into the country?
That’s easy. First, ask yourself when have democrats been concerned with running out of taxpayer money? And secondly, ask who the illegals are most likely to vote for?
There’s your answer: democrats are BUYING illegal alien votes with a seemingly endless supply of taxpayer (OUR) money.
Those are some VERY expensive votes.
