Chasing the Wind

News. Faith. Nonsense.

Illegal Immigration

When 500,000 immigrants, many of them illegal, march upon a city, doesn’t it sort of prove the point that we need to enforce existing immigration laws?500,000 march upon Los Angeles

Update: Since it was Sunday afternoon when I wrote that, I spent only a short amount of time on it. But here’s the point – if illegal immigrants are disrupting a city with demonstrations against immigration reform, then doesn’t the disruption itself argue for immigration reform?

It’s sort of like getting mad at proposed gun legislation so you go shoot up the town.

4 responses to “Illegal Immigration”

  1. I heard this morning that competing new networks of Telemundo, Univision and Aztec America joined forces to issue a public service advertisement calling for viewer participation in the event.

    We are such rubes.


  2. Mere sheep. I wonder why Mainsteam Media isn’t reporting that Hispanic Media is fanning the fires?


  3. 💡 HMMMM…. let’s really look at, in my opinion, is the bare basics of this march/demonstration. Here they are, illegal immigrants… wanting to stay in our wonderful country we call the United States of America – the land of opportunity. Tell me then…. WHY WHY WHY are they marching with another country’s flag??????????? If you’re so darn proud of it, then go back. Otherwise pick up an American flag, wave it for the freedoms and idealogy it represents OR go home to the country whose flag you’re flying and quit complaining about the USA. You can’t drive in Dallas like you drive in Mexico City and expect not to get a ticket. Think on that one.


  4. Maybe I’m slow, or maybe our elected representatives are completely out of touch with the majority of Americans. If you’re sitting there, like me, scratching your head and boiling mad about the immigration and illegal alien issues, and wondering how anyone can vote for a guest worker program or against closing the borders or against deportation, then it’s not the lawmakers we should be mad at. It’s the American public. Have you emailed, called, faxed, visited, or otherwise let your Senators, Representatives, President Bush, and our Vice-President how you feel on the issue? Have you told everyone you can to do the same? I guarantee you that if everyone that voted for an American Idol contestant this week got in touch with their elected officials, the bill that comes out of Washington would be very, very different that what they’re working on now. How many of the average people on the street are fed up with the problem but have done nothing about it? The answer is most of them.

    I watched President Bush on TV Monday night [see this post for my reaction], a President I was intensely proud of after 9/11, and I was very disappointed. What has happened? We, the American public assume, not act. We must act. Otherwise how can our leaders know what we want?

    Sure President Bush’s speech sounded good at first, but a guest worker program is amnesty no matter how you try to spin it – look up amnesty in the dictionary.

    Any illegal alien or immigrant that commits a crime (more serious than speeding) should be deported – there’s no need to let them have three misdemeanors before deporting them.

    Slapping illegal aliens with a fine and letting them live here while working on citizenship IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.

    Worrying about what anyone in Mexico thinks about us putting up a fence and guarding our own border is absolutely ludicrous (as for Ted Kennedy, sir, I think that a big fence sends the exact message that the majority of Americans want sent).

    And, while I’m thinking about it, how can Mexico or any of its citizens sue us or anyone in the United States for building a fence or apprehending illegal aliens on American soil?

    This is what I want, and I think this is what most Americans want:

    – We must put an end to Federal and State support of illegal aliens and illegal immigrants (financial support like Social Security).
    – We must close up and secure our borders.
    – We must give warning that we will not tolerate gangs, drugs, and criminals coming across the border and that will arm our military with lethal force and allow them to use it.
    – We must stop granting citizenship automatically to infants born on American soil of parents that are illegal aliens or illegal immigrants.
    – We do not want a guest worker program.
    – We want illegal aliens and illegal immigrants rounded up and deported.
    – We do not want a path to citizenship for illegal aliens and illegal immigrants.
    – We want laws that protect American citizens from being sued for protecting their property and possessions.

    We must keep passing the word about this and asking people to get involved. Take my short list of above items and send it to your elected officials. Get your friends, neighbors to do the same.

    Be sure to give your name and address so that you will be taken seriously when contacting your elected officials.

About Me

Solomon, in the book of Ecclesiastes, said, “I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind.”

If you’re not living for the glory of God, then what you’re doing is meaningless, no matter what it is. Living for God gives life meaning, and enjoying a “chasing after the wind” is a gift from God. I’m doing what I can to enjoy this gift daily.

Got questions? I’m not surprised. If you have any questions about Chasing the Wind, you can email me at
