Illegals Whining About Census?
Posted by cann0nba11 on June 23, 2009
Let me get this straight. People that enter our country illegally are complaining about not being represented in the upcoming national census. Some Latino leaders want illegal immigrants to boycott the national survey, claiming that being counted — but not represented — isn’t fair.
ARE YOU FRIGGIN’ KIDDING ME?
You are not supposed to be here in the first place. Your mere existince in America makes you a criminal. If entering America to get a better life is not a crime, then I want a refund for the speeding tickets I’ve paid. After all, I was just rushing to work to get a better life.
“It doesn’t make any sense, in some way it is immoral that we are counting 12 million undocumented immigrants who have no benefit at all financially speaking,” said Rev. Miguel Rivera, president of the National Coalition of Latino Clergy & Christian Leaders.
Rivera, whose conservative group of evangelicals is behind the boycott, admitted that telling undocumented immigrants not to participate in the Census is a radical step. But he said it is the only way to make a political point to push immigration reform.
“We are getting nothing at all. … Why not fix this issue, have legalization for every undocumented immigrant, no more undocumented people in this country, and everybody can be counted and everybody will have a fair share,” he said.
This stuff drives me insane. It is “immoral” to ignore not-citizens in a statistical counting of our citizens, but it is not immoral to illegally enter a country? And how dare you claim that you are “getting nothing at all” when in fact you are getting employment, education and health care for free! In fact, the “fair share” that illegal immigrants are consuming every day in America is part of the reason local economies are in the toilet.
The audacity of these statements is a testament to the surreal view of life illegal immigrants and their supporters have.
