The writing on the Statue of Liberty says:

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

Those poignant words are so beautiful and will always remain music to my soul. 
The immigrants who landed on Ellis Island in the early 1900’s were a beacon for those legally searching for a better life. They came here and worked hard and learned English. Their pride would never allow them to ask for a hand out. They were thankful to be in a land where they could practice freedom of religion. They were anxious to learn American ways.

However, there are some new immigrant's who do not hold the same ideals of those immigrants who once teemed our shores yearning to be free The new immigrants expect entitlements while remaining faithful to their mother countries. They expect America to print everything in their native language. Many refuse to learn to speak English. They fly their homeland flags in place of the American flag. They come here expecting to be taken care of. The new immigrants do not want to be part of the American dream, they want to rule over and change the American dream. Many come from countries where cheating, stealing and crime was a way of life and they bring that system to America and then spread the word to their friends and family members on how to cheat our system.  America is no longer a melting pot because these new immigrants do not want to live by our code of ethics or laws. Truly, America is no longer the great melting pot we once were; we have become a dumping ground.

Case in point…Fox news reported on an story of an illegal immigrant winning $750,000 for a Georgia State Lottery ticket, but since he was illegal, he did not have a social security card, so he asked his employer (who knowingly hired him illegally) to pick up the money for him and they would split the money 50/50. I am sure you can guess what happened here! The employer kept all the money, and now the illegal immigrant is suing his employer. How can someone who is in America illegally sue anybody? I can only hope the money will go back to the state, the illegal alien will get deported, and the employer gets fined for hiring him. If we had sanity or justice in America that would happen. Unfortunately we live in a mad society. So even though the "illegal" may be exploited by the employer, the American taxpayer is exploited by the illegal through welfare, food stamps, section 8 housing, free healthcare, free education for children...etc.

Truly! What is wrong with a government willing to lavish all kinds of social benefits on illegal immigrants, but does not want to support their troops?
Why are our soldiers living on the streets and not having their health care needs met? We need to get control legal and illegal immigration. Why shouldn't we have the right to protect our borders like any other country?
My heart hurts for the choices and changes in America.


In 2010 illegal aliens took advantage of a loophole created by Obama when he expanded tax credits in the "Stimulus Plan" which cost the Federal Government $4.2 billion.

Pew Hispanic Center puts the number of people living here illegally at 11.2 million.  The Pew analysis is based on the Census Bureau's Current Population Survey through March 2010. Because the Census Bureau does not ask people about their immigration status, the estimate on illegal immigrants is derived largely by subtracting the estimated legal immigrant population from the total foreign-born population. It is a method that has been used by the government and Pew for many years and is generally accepted.

Bear Stearns used micro-economic indicators to project an alternative estimate. They examined trends in school enrollment, foreign remittances and housing permits in states with high populations of undocumented immigrants like Texas, California, and New York.  Their estimate of 20 million illegal immigrants is the identification of two patterns: 1) a trend of sharply increased demand for public services in communities that have become gateways for immigration, and 2) increases in foreign remittances (money sent back to an immigrant's native country), housing permits and border-crossings.

Other Immigration officials estimate that the illegal immigrant population grows by as many as 500,000 every year.

Which side of the fence do you sit on?

Which side of the fence do you sit on?

If you ever wondered which side of the fence you sit on, this is a great

If a Republican doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one. If a Democrat
doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat. If a Democrat is a
vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life. If a Democrat
is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.
If a Republican is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his
situation. A Democrat wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a Republican doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.
Democrats demand that those they don't like be shut down.
If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church. A Democrat
non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced.

If a Republican decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping
for it, or may choose a job that provides it.
A Democrat demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a Republican reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a
good laugh.
A Democrat will delete it because he's “offended”.

But the same countries in which they are happy to live. This is so true ..... Democracy is really good for them :

In a democracy they can live comfortably, enjoy the high quality of life which they did not build and work for, they don’t have to be productive and earn a living, they can be wild, pray in the street and exploit social services, bite the hand that feeds them.

And by the time the free world wakes up, it will be too late
