Are you as sick as I am of the term undocumented immigrants? Political correctness be damned, what’s wrong with calling an illegal alien exactly that?

You can candy coat it all you want, but if they are in this country without going through the proper immigration channels, they are here illegally. If they are not resident citizens or legal immigrants, they are aliens. Doesn’t that make them illegal aliens? Let’s take it a step further – they are criminals.

Last week there was a major protest in Phoenix, Arizona in support of “undocumented immigrants” whom Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio routinely rounds up and turns over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The protestors claim that the Sheriff is violating undocumented immigrants’ rights by enforcing the law he swore to uphold.

What rights? They have no rights. They are not American citizens. Again, they are criminals who have violated the law by entering our country illegally. If you break into my home, you have no rights. You are a criminal, and will be dealt with accordingly. There’s a guy with several broken bones in his hand and wrist sitting in a jail cell up in Indiana who can confirm that for you.

The law is the law, and as long as the law says that we have an immigration policy, that law should and must be enforced. Rounding them up and deporting them is not only the right thing to do, it is required by law, no matter how much it offends the do-gooders who object.

Why do we even tolerate organizations that aid and promote illegal activity, like the ones that organized last weekend’s protest? How would we feel about organizations that supported burglars, drug dealers, or car thieves, and organized marches to protest when they get arrested? 

Those who support “undocumented immigrants” complain that not only are these people being deported, but in the process, their families are ripped apart when they have children who were born in this country. Isn’t that what happens when a robber or a rapist with children goes to jail? Isn’t his family ripped apart, as a result of his illegal actions? Here’s a concept – if you don’t want your family ripped apart, stay in your own damned country and have your kids there!

Call me heartless, but I don’t care how tough they had it back in their homeland. I don’t care that they are here to build a better life for themselves and their families. I’m sure the creep who broke into our place felt he had a good reason to do so. Why don’t they stay in their own country and work on resolving the problems there that make it a cesspool with no opportunities? Could it be because the places they come from don’t have neat things like welfare?

No, we shouldn’t back off on deporting illegal aliens, we should step up our efforts to do so. They are criminals, and we are fully capable of growing our own criminals right here at home. We don’t need to import them.

    So since the law is is wrong and inhumane, that makes it all right to dehumanize undocumented immigrants? Because that’s what happens when we round them up like cattle!

    All people deserve respect and the right to a better life. How mamny of these unfortunates do you really think would be able to “legally” immigrate here if they tried to under the present restrictions?

    Connie, your correlation makes no sense at all. If you drive on the wrong side of the road, you could and would probably cause a tragic accident. How does that compare with coming to a place where you can find work and a better life for your family?

  2. Connie Braidh says:

    Patsy, my correlation relates to obeying the laws or only choosing the ones you want to obey. I also was trying to point out there are consequences of choosing how and which laws you obey and doing “your own thing” about the laws you don’t like.
    I see you as mixing your concern for the people involved with the validity of the law. Right now the law says that illegal aliens must be returned to their country of origin. You are concerned this dehumanizes them. I don’t see it dehumanizes them. That is a difference of opinion.
    I support the idea that people need to legally enter this country. They are breaking the law if the enter illegally. I support the idea we can’t accept everyone and that if you are unhappy in your country perhaps its better to stay home, try to change things and not move across the border to get better benefits (which you have not paid for) from the country next door.
    I hope this has explained to you my ideas and positions on this subject. I respect your right to your opinion. I hope you respect my right to have a different opinion. I believe that this is what Bad Nick’s Blog is all about: each of us having our own opinions, the right to express those opinions and the hope that each of us accepts the fact that not everyone agrees with our own opinions. Having a dialog is important and disagreeing or agreeing with the opinions of others is what this is all dialog is all about.

  3. […] by somebody who didn’t like my blog Can He Walk On Water Too, and in response to the blog post Undocumented = Illegal, another reader called me a bigot. Can’t anybody believe that I’m just an independent thinker […]

    Hi Nick. I waited a long time for this site to come back to life!
    Boy, you nailed it & I agree 100%. Much more to take about including health care & schools. Trump got it right. We can pay for the wall easy with stopping what it costs us to feed the mob.

    Keep it coming
