Why is illegal entry into this country an issue?



Let me start off with a bold logical statement. If you as a voting US citizen feel so strongly about allowing illegal entry into this country, show it to everyone by letting a bunch of them live in your house and subsidize them with your own money. Of course, this is also illegal, but ponder it just the same. I would appreciate your taxes funding them over my own.

In this scenario, it is okay to let them work outside your property for profit, but also in this scenario, you don't see a dime of the money they make. Being the generous and sympathetic soul that you are, you furnish everything for a husband and wife and a year later, you suddenly realize they have moved 8 other "relatives" into your house and 3 of the women are pregnant, which by law, you will adopt.

You of course will pay their medical expenses, diaper bills, education and everything else associated with having 10 people under your roof besides your family. You feel so strongly about their right to be here that you literally bankrupt your resources and make a trip to Austin to lobby for them to stay.

Now the question we've all been waiting to hear answered. How in God's name is this even a scenario anyone would agree to?

Months pass and many of the 28 people now living under your roof are good and hard-working people, who show how good they are by sending 90% of their earnings home to wherever their home country is. Their family's deserve to benefit from their hard work in the US, right? On top of that, because you have so much, you deserve to foot the bill. I mean, after all, nothing is more garish and vulgar than American privilege. You are rich and when it comes right down to it, you should literally be forced to share.

We can each save the world, one undocumented human at a time no matter the cost or our current set of laws!

Why can't other US citizens just understand that our hard-earned standard of living should be shared with the less fortunate? All the fat kids in America speak volumes of nutrition abuse to the hungry kid living elsewhere. Take from us obese US citizens and give it to that kid who simply cannot afford to eat at the Lone Steak Outhouse cafe every day. Because if we don't, they will be forced to consume the local food that has successfully sustained their ancestors for thousands of years.

I could cite instance after instance and lengthy articles explaining how allowing illegal entry into this country is both good and bad and people are so passionate about it that they are ready to kill each other over the issue, but forget all that. Seriously, forget about it!

Let's simply draw a line in the dirt right now. Let's change the immigration laws to allow anyone sympathetic to allowing illegals into this country (read undocumented citizens - forget the workers part) to let them move as many people into their house(s) as they can initially financially support. They must sign a binding contract to cover their food, transportation, medical bills, insurance (because everyone has to have insurance for god's sake), utilities usage, and all associated taxes with living in this country.

They must also sign a binding contract that if at any time they cannot fulfill this, they will face a non-negotiable 5 year jail visit per person. If the person they are funding commits a felony, they will share in the punishment. Also, the people they are funding will not be liable to pay back anything they receive from their sponsor and can send 90% of it home. This will allow their distant families to enjoy the same standard of living as their sponsor once did before being so financially burdened that they are in ruin.

To make it fair to the sponsor, each contract would expire after 5 years and must be renewed or the sponsored inhabitants will be deported at your expense.

I think it's a wonderful plan of compromise and I cannot for the life of me see how anyone sympathetic to the plight of illegals could find it offensive or - God forbid...racist!

Melvin Roark: So very true, nobody is putting their money or homes up to help. They are just protesting the so called unfair treatment of illegals. If they enter the country the proper way they wouldn't be illegal, end of story.

James Connealy: Great viewpoint Bert. We have more bleeding hearts in the country, but they want you to bleed along with them. Bleeding hearts show the compassion, but want us to bleed money to fund their compassionate feelings.

There is also a 'legal' line of folks, following legal procedures to enter and live in the USA. Would you like it if someone 'cut in line' (in front of you) at the grocery store or anywhere there is a line (esp. if you camped all night to get tickets!)?. However, with immigration, many (12 million at least), have 'skipped the line' altogether and "came in the back door"! AS someone has said: "What part of 'illegal' do you NOT understand?!" (p.s. I wished they would enforce "bank robbing" as well as "immigration". . . because I could sure use the money! ! !)

Kudos to... Bert Marshall. He really hit
the nail on the head with his tongue-in-cheek summation of
our illegal population problem in not only Texas, but most
of America. His article should be required reading for our
schools students. TK

I enjoy all of your articles, but the "Illegal Entry" was spot on! I wish all the bleeding-heart liberals had to take in and take care of a few illegals as you suggest.

RK: I am not a Sun reader but was recently given a piece from the 01JUN paper. Your piece. I am sitting on my back porch watching the sunrise, having my coffee, muling over your genious proposal. I am 66 years old and can tell you from having visited the social security office more than once you are dead on right. I am a compassionate person but at some point reality sets in. I even ponder the fundamental question of "what would Jesus do". I honestly don't know about what He would do. I only know there is no free lunch.
