Illegals March Madness

By Dimitri Vassilaros - Friday, March 10, 2006 - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
The fifth column is marching.

Supporters of illegal immigration, open borders - and perhaps Mexico - have been taking it to the streets of America lately. Protesters are demanding the U.S. Senate kill legislation that would kill the overflow of illegal aliens swamping this republic.

House Resolution 4437, the Border Protection, Antiterrorism and Illegal Immigration Control Act of 2005, is sponsored by James Sensenbrenner Jr., R-Wis. It directs the Department of Homeland Security to "take all actions necessary and appropriate to achieve and maintain operational control over the entire land and maritime border of the United States ... ."


"It criminalizes people and does not offer solutions," said Omar N. Lopez, coordinator of a protest march today in the Chicago area by almost 80 organizations. "It calls for the expulsion of undocumented workers."

Maybe after the march Mr. Lopez could explain how one criminalizes a foreigner whose mere presence on American soil makes him an illegal.

The people who are harmed most by illegal aliens are those American citizens who need our help the most. Illegal aliens load up the welfare roles with people who have paid nothing into the system, and who illegally do everything they can to make sure they don't contribute. They do this by working off the books so they don't pay taxes and so they can draw welfare they do not deserve while getting wages they don't report. They lower wages for Americans, and it is total nonsense to say they do jobs Americans will not do.
