Skip to comments.Americans United Against Illegal Immigration
Posted on 05/10/2006 11:30:50 AM PDT by rosierita
To: President George W. Bush, U.S. Congress, & U.S. Senate
We, the lawful citizens of the United States of America, hereby demand that our elected representatives begin working on our behalf to enforce the existing laws on illegal immigration, as well as making our borders impenetrable.
Many arguments are being made attempting to show us some positive aspects of ignoring the presence of illegal aliens in our nation. The facts are that illegal aliens are very damaging to our economy and our nations stability. Emergency rooms of many hospitals near the Southern border are being forced to turn our own citizens away or even shut down completely because non-paying illegal aliens are benefiting from the use of hospitals without making payment or holding insurance to cover the expense. Colleges are accepting illegal aliens with in-state tuition while American citizens are forced to pay a higher tuition rate and in some cases, are not being accepted to the colleges and universities because they do not help the institution meet a ridiculous quota.
Aside from the enormous bill left for Americans to pay for these illegal aliens, a far worse price is bring paid, which is Americas heritage. American citizens are proud of our nations history and traditions. We are by far the most patriotic nation in the world. Its easy to understand why people from other nations would want to join us as citizens in the greatest and most prosperous nation in the world, however that is where a problem lies. While most legal immigrants are very proud of their status as an American citizen and will work to assimilate by learning the English language and will respect our way of life, most illegal aliens have no interest in truly becoming American.

Wecome to FR you should fit in just fine.
Great post - WELCOME!!
My additional comments on this petition is that we must stop the practice of "anchor-babies". These people are NOT US citizens, I don't care what activist judge said so.
I agree eltex, anchor babies are sucking benefits from immigrants who are here legally, as well as US-born citizens, and that's wrong.
ROSIERITA, WELCOME! Thanks for posting!
Welcome! I agree you should be just fine!
Signed, copied, sent, and links forwarded!
Excellent post, rr. I can strongly support this. - OB1
Welcome to FR! Borders and immigration are a hot button issue right now, so don't take it personally if you field a flame or two when posting on those subjects. Thanks for the link.
Welcome to Free Republic
Hope this isn't your last post! Welcome to Free Republic.
thanks for the welcome everyone! i hope to post often, but i have to say that this site will take some getting used to!
I dont see the President supporting this. Diverting Homeland Security assets and their attention to illegal immigration, enforcing the existing laws on Mexicans crossing the border will not make us all safer from Islamic terrorists. The opposite is true.
And how will securing the borders help get around the ridiculous quotas?
As it turns out, you are correct on that point.
"Jus solis" is embodied in our Constitution.
But on the last point, you are incorrect. It is not a part of our constitution to give citizenship to babies born on US soil to citizens of a foreign country.

The rest of us will look forward to hearing more from you.
Welcome, and it's a good post! In addition to what you said, I strongly recommend we add another demand: that the president and Congress obey the U.S. Constitution!!
Article IV, Section 4:
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion.
In addition to the social and economic disaster this illegal foreign invasion is bringing us -- by our failure to secure our borders in an age of international terrorism the government is exposing thousands (millions?) of Americans to a potential terrorist holocaust.
I don't agree with much of what Pat Buchanin says but I DO agree with him that this cavalier disregard of the Constitution and the safety and welfare of Americans is an impeachable offense.
