SCR 113 Illegal Immigration Boycott Resolution(Tom McClintock, true blue conservative in CA)
Tom McClintock.com ^ | April 26, 2006 | Tom McClintock

Posted on 05/01/2006 7:21:51 AM PDT by kellynla

Senator Alarcon’s talk about the views of the Founding Fathers on immigration caught my attention and interest. I am quite familiar with the writings of Benjamin Franklin on the subject and Senator Alarcon may be very surprised to learn that there was no more ardent or vigorous critic of illegal immigration than Benjamin Franklin. He wrote about it extensively during the mass immigration of Germans into Pennsylvania, in the 1750s. His solution however was not to ban immigration, but rather to insist upon legal immigration.

And that is the problem I have with this resolution: it blurs that vital distinction between legal and illegal immigration. The proponents are absolutely right and absolutely solid in saying that ours is a nation of immigrants. Virtually every one of us is either an immigrant ourselves or the son or daughter of immigrants.

That is what makes this country so great. That is the foundation of a nation, built on that uniquely American motto, E Pluribus Unum: from many, one.

From many people, one people. The American people.

From many races, one race. The American race.

Our immigration laws are not written to keep people out. Our immigration laws are written to ensure that as people come to America, they come to become Americans and to assimilate to American society: they acquire a common language, a common culture and a common appreciation of American constitutional principles and American legal traditions.

I was here first. America is where I stood when I watched Chuck Norris round-house kick God, spark the big bang and create the universe.

(America was placed on Earth by Chuck Norris so I would have someplace to live while I told everyone this story)

These protesters need to protest in Mexico or wherever they're from since that is where their problems originate.

And where does Senator Alarcon fit on the ideological spectrum? His sister Evelina has been Vice Chair of the Communist Party USA and chair of the Southern California District of the Communist Party USA as well as a “state coordinator” for the United Farm Worker union. Senator Alarcon has been featured speaker at a banquet for the People’s Weekly World, the newspaper of the Communist Party USA.

Illegal immigration undermines the process of legal immigration that makes our country possible in the first place. Blurring the distinction between legal and illegal immigration is an insult to the millions of legal immigrants who right now are obeying our laws; who are doing everything our country asks of them; who are waiting in line to become Americans and who are helplessly watching as millions and millions of people cut in line in front of them.

That one was just published this morning. It's worth a read.
It outs many of our "esteemed" legislators for their other-than-American loyalties.

It should be "illegal aliens"

Illegal aliens = invaders - millions of them. We're being forced to pay the bills for invaders! A first in U.S. history! A first for an American president to allow an invasion of America by a third world dump and force his citizens to pay for it.

Well, I hope today goes down as the Great Anti-American Flameout!

There was some idiot on Fox News talking about today being Labor Day. Even when Gibson pointed out his error, that it was a SOCIALIST holiday, the guy went on saying "yes my friend, there is a labor day in the United States, too." Gibson let it go muttering something about "the end of summer." These people aren't American!

I just finished running 6 miles with a big ole AMERICAN FLAG. As I crossed back and forth across Grand Rapids, dozens of cars honked and people cheered, raised their fists, thumbs up, "Hell Yeah", basket ball games stopped and "All right Bro", people on buses going home waved, some old veteran even started running beside me and I handed him the flag for a few blocks...... even a few "OORRAAAHs".

AMEN.

Lets all get out and run with OLD GLORY held high in our fists. We the People ......
