Several years ago, a good friend of mine had this analogy posted on his file cabinet at work. It remains on point to this very day:
“Let’s pretend I broke into your house. When you discover me there, you insist I leave. But I say, “I’ve made all the beds, washed the dishes, did the laundry, and cleaned the floors; I’ve done all the work you don’t like to do. I’m hardworking and honest (except for breaking into your house). Not only must you let me stay, you must also add me to your insurance plan, educate my kids, and provide these benefits to my husband, too (he will do your yard work, he’s honest and hardworking too–except for that breaking in part). If you try to force me out, I will call my friends who will picket your house and proclaim my right to be there! It’s only fair, because you have a nicer house than I do, and I’m trying to better myself. I’m hardworking and honest…except for, well, you know. I will live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of selfishness and prejudice.
Oh yeah, I want you to learn my language so you can communicate with me.”
Good plan…don’t you think? Is this a behavior we should be rewarding?”
Guess what? This Puppet President and his Administration are.
Case in point:
“A group of illegal migrants, who entered into the U.S. through the southern border, are refusing to leave their free NYC hotel rooms for a migrant shelter in Brooklyn, New York, sleeping in the street to protest.
The migrants were initially placed at the Watson Hotel in Midtown Manhattan, but their schedule for relocation to a new migrant relief center, the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, caused uproar late Sunday night.
While some migrants left for the new shelter, many refused to vacate the Hell’s Kitchen hotel and rallied outside the building alongside migrant activists. The migrants who were noncompliant in the city’s relocation spent the night outside the hotel and were seen holding their ground into Monday morning.
Democrat Mayor Eric Adams responded to the situation, affirming that the new facilities were hospitable accommodations and noting the dire need of state and government support amid the ongoing migrant crisis that is impacting the Big Apple.” (Courtesy FoxNews.com)
What makes the current influx of illegal immigrants exempt from the rules and regulations that every other generation of immigrants to this country had to abide by in order to become legal citizens of the greatest nation in the world? By being here illegally, they are not entitled to the same rights as natural-born or naturalized American citizens.
And, yet, even as I write this, they are in our hospitals, taking advantage of our charity and the finest health care system in the world, and driving our streets, with either forged drivers licenses or those obtained from states who have acquiesced and given them to these “undocumented workers”.
And, they are staying in hotel rooms average Americans can’t afford on OUR money!
Allowing people to illegally enter our country is in no way a human rights issue. Freedom is God-given, and with freedom comes responsibility. With citizenship comes responsibility, like paying taxes and making your own way.
My concerns about the Democrats’ coddling of the illegal aliens can be divided into three bullet points. (Hey, I’m a Former VP of Marketing. What do you expect?)
1. Patriotism – Will these new “citizens” be willing to fly our flag above theirs? Will they be willing, if called upon, to serve in our Armed Forces, at home or abroad? Will they love this country, more than the one they left?
2. Loyalty – When these “new Americans” achieve the right to vote, are they all going to vote Democrat, so that they can receive more FREE STUFF? Will they honestly embrace our sovereign nation as their new home? Or, will they remain loyal to their country of origin?
The Democrats are rewarding illegal behavior while at the same time, insulting all of the brave souls who have come here legally, seeking a better life for themselves and their families?
I’m all for assisting anyone in becoming a legal citizen of the United States, if that is their wish. But, it must be done the right way. They must leave and re-enter legally, show a willingness to learn our language, and embrace our American way of life, including respecting the American Flag.
All that giving these illegals free hotel rooms has done is make them willingly dependent on “Uncle Sugar”.
We have enough people in this country who do want to work, already…and who vote Democrat.
