"We have kids without dads and pregnant mothers who got their husbands taken away," said Velez's son, Robert, youth pastor at the church. "It was like a horror story. They got handled like they were criminals."
Huh. Real shocker there. Let's see - we treat criminals like criminals and law enforcement is somehow wrong?
These same nitwits think I'm an asshole because I think that if you move to America you learn to speak English. My great-grandfather came in from Germany through Ellis Island. He made his entire family speak English, and only English anywhere but church once they got off the boat. If my Grandfather spoke German, he'd catch a beating.
Fast forward to the 21st century, ruled by political correctness. We have to have Spanish signs in case someone needs to read it and doesn't speak English. Excluding an airport or ship port, I see NO reason to coddle these people. My Grandfather learned English because America was not going to learn German just for him. So why do these South Americans think I have to learn Spanish? We got two Democrats that think I need to learn their language. Obammy and Ted Kennedy think we should cater to the immigrants. Are they off their meds?
So where do we draw the line? There's a large Jewish community over in that town, so we need Hebrew signs for the town. Oh and how about that Cape Verdian neighborhood, got to put up signs in Portuguese! Where does it end? Some one moves in to your town from east bumfuck, and now we have to add bumfuckian to all the signs in town?
I'll tell you where it should stop, it should have stopped a long time ago. It's time we stop wasting taxpayers money, and start forcing the South Americans, Mexicans and whoever else to learn the local lingo. I don't want to hear "Press one for English"
If I moved to another country, I'd learn the language. I'm not asking anyone else to do anything that I am not willing to do myself.
Now if you're here in this country illegally then GET THE FUCK OUT. I don't care if your Lithuanian, German, Mexican, or from Canada. I got one thing to say "buh-bai" If the law isn't going to be enforced because someone has their panties in a bunch because someone jumped the border and now wants to stay I got the perfect cure. I'll go to their house and move in for a week. And I'll work their job for less pay. Sounds like a plan. Let's see how these bleeding hearts put up with my drunken ass for a week. It's the same as these illegals taking jobs away from Americans. Granted a lot of Americans are too lazy to take the jobs, but with the economy so bad, that attitude will change soon enough.
