Citizenaurgatory, or Innocent American Citizens Trapped Between Heaven and Hell in the U.S.

"Citizenaurgatory, or Innocent American citizens Trapped Between Heaven and Hell in the U.S."
I wish to respond to Bill Dahl, a contributing columnist for the site Hispanic Vista. In part, Mr. Dahl states the following; "For these Latinos, the hope for citizenship in the U.S. is heaven. Visions of better jobs, education, healthcare, housing, protections against discrimination, racism, the ability to be all one can be, to contribute to the United States economy and culture on an equal footing - these are the elements of their hope. The country they departed was, at least, economically oppressive. Hope led them here. Hope keeps them here. They hope that we will awaken from our self-righteous indignation and accept them formally into this, the Promised Land. Let them in America!"
We do let them into America, the Promised Land. In fact we welcome them with open arms. It is called legal immigration. We let in one legal immigrant per minute, 24/7. The Promised Land has more legal immigrants residing here than the entire population of Canada.
Next subject, education in the Promised Land. Per Mr. Dahl, Juan (not his real name) has completed all his education in the Santa Ana school district. American taxpayers just paid in the vicinity of $7,000 (national average) per year for Juans public education. Final tally, $60,000 for Juan alone, gee thanks California taxpayers! Yet legal immigrant children here on F-1 visas with their parents are billed each and every year for their childs American public school education costs. No payment, no school re-enrollment. Illegal alien children are educated for "free" in our classrooms at American taxpayers cost.
"This spring, Juan will receive his Bachelors degree from a four-year university in southern California. Most of the financial support he received for college was donated by a local church."
Two points here in rebuttal. First point, now Juan can return to his country and begin leading the educated fight, courtesy of us taxpayers, against corruption and oppression in his country. We have supplied him with that much for free. Second point, the churches that have aided him are guilty of felony aiding and abetting. Ultimately Catholic Charities, the Salvation Army, the Lutheran programs, etc. will all be taken to task for breaking the Promised Lands federal laws. People here are awakening alright, and do not like the scenario they see today. Refer to "The Awakening - Liberty and Justice For All" in Mr. Dahls column. It is a two way street, sir. We of the Promised Land call it a nightmare.
Final comment here, Mr. Dahl wrote "They dont have any medical insurance. Juans 5-year old sister has suffered from heart problems requiring 2 major surgeries. She needs another one but they just dont have the money.
I will ask this then. Who paid for the surgeries? We know it wasnt Mexico, Idaho has billed them repeatedly and they throw the annual several million dollar health care bills away. We know that President Fox stated the following "(illegal) Mexican workers need "access to decent health care" and that "certain groups of migrants are only cared for in (the Promised Land, USA) charity clinics." We know that we, the American taxpayer, are paying for this. Unfortunately, there isnt enough tax money to cover legal residents medical bills here in the Promised Land, so couple that with illegal aliens bills and the result is hospitals, and "charity clinics" closing, one after another. American residents, when you, or you loved one needs emergency surgery or they will die, and there is no hospitals remaining open near you, is Mexico going to airlift you to theirs, footing the bills as well? Highly unlikely as in Mexico, if you do not pay cash up front, you are left to die in their emergency room entrances now.
I will leave all of you with this thought. There are 155 poorer countries then Mexico. Do we ship all of their citizens in by boat, as they do not have the convenient border location to simply walk illegally into the United States? If not, why not? After all, to quote Mr. Dahl in reference to the Promised Land of America for the final time here "Its time that the Christian community repents, takes the leadership role and opens the door..."

It could cost us the Republic. We were already on edge when it began.
Why is it Mexico is seemingly incapable of developing its oil industry. It supposedly has huge reserves. Anyone out there with data on this?
I lived in LA for 15 years.
This is our future:
Fernando Ortiz was a landscape engineer on Long Island who had demanded to be able to vote, on the basis that he had been paying state and federal taxes for ten years. Actually, he had been stopped from casting a ballot by a poll watcher who had suspected his citizenship status, and (illegally, as it turned out) demanded proof of his identity and legal qualification to vote. Ortiz had won a multi-million dollar settlement against the Republican Party of New York in the subsequent racial profiling and ethnic intimidation civil suit, but he did not stop there.
Instead, with massive support from the ACLU and various Hispanic immigrants rights foundations, he had pressed his demand to be allowed to vote all the way to the Supreme Court and he won. The Supreme Court, in its famous 5-4 decision, ruled that negligence in securing Americas borders against illegal immigration on the part of the federal government, could not be held against undocumented workers who played by the rules and paid their taxes, once they were established in Americalegally or not. The federal government had not taken reasonable efforts to secure the border, and had not pursued "undocumented workers" in the USA. Instead, it openly permitted them most of the benefits of citizenship, and it collected their taxes. "No taxation without representation!" was the cry heard all the way to the Supreme Court. The State of New York had then sleep-walked through an aimless and desultory case for denying the voteand citizenshipto undocumented workers.
Following Ortiz v. New York, a stunned America woke up to discover that there were not only an amazing twenty-two million illegal aliens hiding in plain sight across the land, but that eight million of them immediately qualified to vote. In a nation split 50-50 down party and ideological lines, these eight million new voters were recognized to be the certain majority-makers in future elections, and both parties set record lows for cravenness in pandering to their needs. Chief among their needs were liberal new family reunification laws, and these instant citizensillegal aliens only a year beforebegan bringing the remainders of their families to the USA. Legally.
Overnight, wavering Democrat states became locks, and swing states with large Hispanic populations went solidly blue. The result was the recent election which had brought Gobernador Deleon to power in Nuevo Mexico, and had also brought radical Democrats to power in the White House and both houses of congress.
Thus had come the political tsunami which swept all before it, a tidal wave triggered by an undocumented lawn maintenance worker named Fernando Ortiz.
"For these Latinos, the hope for citizenship in the U.S. is heaven. Visions of better jobs, education, healthcare, housing, protections against discrimination, racism, the ability to be all one can be, to contribute to the United States economy and culture on an equal footing - these are the elements of their hope. The country they departed was, at least, economically oppressive. Hope led them here. Hope keeps them here. They hope that we will awaken from our self-righteous indignation and accept them formally into this, the Promised Land. Let them in America!"
Is this guy advocating citizenship for illegals?!
