Immigration and why I'm a racist.


Let me begin this post with stating quite clearly.  I welcome LEGAL immigrants to this country with open arms. I think those who sacrifice and follow the legal way to come to the United States should be welcomed as brothers and sisters.

I'm a racist, I hate everyone of Hispanic origin, or at least, what's what I'm told by people because I insist the law should be followed and enforced.  I am called a racist and hate mongerer because I have an issue with people who knowingly, blatantly break the law.  I am a promoter of bigotry because I think that American jobs should go to those who are here legally.  All of these things despite my diverse set of friends and family.  Any one that actually knows me, knows I don't have a racist bone in my body, and everyone that calls me a racist is doing so because they have no argument left, and all they have left is ad hominem attacks.

I am not opposed to migrant workers, I do want accountability for the migrant workers however.  I think they should be sponsored, and that the employer should have to post a $10,000 bond, and pay all insurance costs related to the worker.

Those who are pro illegal alien use this quote from the Statue of Liberty:

“Give me your tired, your poor, 
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free"

What they generally leave out is the rest of the quote:
"The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. 
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me: 
I lift my lamp beside the golden door. "

Please note, it mentions a door, please use it.  It doesn't say pick the lock, or sneak in if the door is left open accidentally.

Illegal aliens bring diseases with them, they bring a criminal life with them, and they bring poverty with them.   Those who cater to illegal aliens are not doing so out of compassion, they are exploiting these impoverished people for slave labor.  The laws passed recently in Utah, specifically HB116, the Guest Worker Amnesty bill might seem like a good thing on it's face to the pro illegal alien crowd, however, what this law really does, is create a new class of slaves.  It doesn't regulate the pay, or safety for these workers, it simply prevents Utah from arresting them and sending them home.  There is no compassion in this law.

I don't care if you're purple, orange, red, white, black, or brown.  I don't care if you're Canadian, Irish, German, English, Greek, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Mexican, Brazillian, or any race, creed, or color.  If you are here illegally, you are in violation of Federal law, and have wiped your feet on the Constitution and laws that I hold dear.

What do I support?  I support the following plan to address illegal immigration:

1) Fine any business that hires illegal aliens

2) Fine any landlord renting to an illegal alien.

3)  End Entitlements for illegal aliens.  (Eventually we should end them for everyone)

4)  Secure the Border

5)  Reform immigration making it easier to come into the United States, it shouldn't take $20,000 to come here, and it definitely shouldn't take 15-20 years to become a citizen, I think between 5-10 years tops.

I believe we are a nation of laws, and we either support, uphold, sustain and obey these laws, or we do not.  If we do not uphold and sustain the laws of the land, then we cease to be a blessed nation.  Many times in the Book of Mormon and Bible cities were destroyed because they immersed themselves in iniquity, and sin.  I believe with all my heart that if we support the laws AS WRITTEN, and if we pull our country back to it's moral center, we will truly be a blessed nation again.

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and we have an article of faith that states,

We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law."
I believe in honoring this article of Faith.  It hasn't been suspended, it hasn't ever been put on hold, it isn't negotiable.  Obey, Honor, and Sustain the law, not find ways to bypass it.

We are a nation built upon LEGAL immigrants, and immigrant labor.  There is nothing honest about crawling across the border like a sneak thief.  It is time we elect leaders that are willing to make the difficult decisions on immigration, and fix this broken system.
