Great read from a border patrol agent
A retired border patrol agent's letter
Dear Senator Frist:
There is a huge amount of propaganda and myths circulating about illegal
aliens, particularly illegal Mexican, Salvadorian, Guatemalan and Honduran
1. Illegal aliens generally do NOT want U.S. citizenship. Americans are
very vain thinking that everybody in the world wants to be a U.S. citizen.
Mexicans, and other nationalities want to remain citizens of their home
countries while obtaining the benefits offered by the United States such as
employment, medical care, in-state tuition, government subsidized housing
and free education for their offspring. Their main attraction is
employment and their loyalty usually remains at home. They want benefits
earned and subsidized by middle class Americans. What illegal aliens want
are benefits of American residence without paying the price.
2. There are no jobs that Americans won't do. Illegal aliens are doing
jobs that Americans can't take and still support their families. Illegal
aliens take low wage jobs, live dozens in a single residence home, using
the beds 24/7, share expenses and send money to their home country. There
are no jobs that Americans won't do for a decent wage.
3. Every person who illegally entered this nation left a home. They are
NOT homeless and they are NOT Americans. Some left jobs in their home
countries. They come to send money to their real home as evidenced by the
more than 20 billion dollars sent out of the country each year by illegal
aliens. These illegal aliens knowingly and willfully entered this nation
in violation of the law and therefore assumed the risk of detection and
deportation. Those who brought their alien children assumed the
responsibility and risk on behalf of their children.
4. Illegal aliens are NOT critical to the economy. Illegal aliens
constitute less than 5% of the workforce. However, they reduce wages and
benefits for lawful U.S. residents.
5. This is NOT an immigrant nation. There are 280 million native born
Americans. While it is true that this nation was settled and founded by
immigrants (legal immigrants), it is also true that there is not a nation
on this planet that was not settled by immigrants at one time or another.
6. The United States is welcoming to legal immigrants. Illegal aliens are
not immigrants by definition. The U.S. accepts more lawful immigrants
every year than the rest of the world combined.
7. There is no such thing as the "Hispanic vote". Hispanics are white,
brown, black and every shade in between. Hispanics are Republicans,
Democrats, Anarchists, Communists, Marxists and Independents. The
so-called "Hispanic vote" is a myth. Pandering to illegal aliens to get
the His panic vote is a dead end.
8. Mexico is NOT a friend of the United States. Since 1848 Mexicans have
resented the United States. During World War I Mexico allowed German Spies
to operate freely in Mexico to spy on the U.S. During World War II Mexico
allowed the Axis powers to spy on the U.S. from Mexico. During the Cold
War Mexico allowed spies hostile to the U.S. to operate freely. The attack
on the Twin Towers in 2001 was cheered and applauded all across Mexico.
Today Mexican school children are taught that the U.S. stole California,
Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. If you don't believe it, check out some
Mexican textbooks written for their schoolchildren.
9. Although some illegal aliens enter this country for a better life, there
are 6 billion people on this planet. At least 1 billion of those live on
less than one dollar a day. If wanting a better life is a valid excuse to
break the law and sneak into America, then let's allow those one billion to
come to America and we'll turn the USA into a Third World nation overnight.
Besides, there are 280 million native born Americans who want a better
life. I'll bet Bill Gates and Donald Trump want a better life. When will
the USA lifeboat be full? Since when is wanting a better life a good
reason to trash another nation?
10. There is a labor shortage in this country. This is a lie. There are
hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of American housewives, senior
citizens, students, unemployed and underemployed who would gladly take jobs
at a decent wage.
11. It is racist to want secure borders. What is racist about wanting
secure borders and a secure America? What is racist about not wanting
people to sneak into America and steal benefits we have set aside for legal
aliens, senior citizens, children and other legal residents? What is it
about race that entitles people to violate our laws, steal identities, and
take the American Dream without paying the price?
For about four decades American politicians have refused to secure our
borders and look after the welfare of middle class Americans. These
politicians have been of both parties. A huge debt to American society has
resulted. This debt will be satisfied and the interest will be high.
There has already been riots in the streets by illegal aliens and their
supporters. There will be more. You, as a politician, have a choice to
offend the illegal aliens who have stolen into this country and demanded
the rights afforded to U.S. citizens or to offend those of us who are
stakeholders in this country. The interest will be steep either way.
There will be civil unrest. There will be a reckoning. Do you have the
courage to do what is right for America? Or, will you bow to the wants and
needs of those who don't even have the right to remain here?
There will be a reckoning. It will come in November of this year, again in
2008 and yet again in 2010.
We will not allow America to be stolen by third world agitators and
