What do you think of illegal immigrants? (40)

I am a Japanese and living in CA.
I wonder how Americans think about illegal immigrants.

2 Name: ak47 : 2006-12-22 20:21 ID:KcWBl4LW

I'm not American, I'm Canadian. However, I can offer a perspective on the issue. In canada, since we have a low birthrate and a policy of "multiculturalism" we are required to have a certain amount of immigrants every years, from certain places, depending on what jobs are in need of filling and where we can find workers for those jobs. For example, we might needs lots of engineers, so we target ethnic groups that have alot of engineers. This is to ensure that all our jobs are filled and no one is mooching off our system.

As such, I have no respect for illegal immigrants who come to any country and mooch off of the legal citizen without paying anything back. However, in Canada we do not have the same problem as the US because we are isolated from all other countries except for the US, so I sympathize greatly with Americans. I think the US would benefit greatly from adopting a "me first" attitude towards immigration like Canada's, albeit without the PC "multiculturalism" BS...as for illegal immigrants, I've got no sympathy for them. If you can't be bothered to come here legally, then we don't want you here.

Multiculturalism is one of the worst concepts in modern society. "Hey, guys! Let's intentionally balkanize our own country and turn into a third-world shithole like India! It'll be great!".

While illegal immigrants in the United States is a problem they have brought a few good things to be coupled with the bad. Here are what I see are the reasons for both.

Good Reasons

  1. It helps the common masses get used to another culture, or maybe another opinion.
  2. Because of the first reason America takes in some Mexican ideas and make it so it would benefit them.
  3. In the business world they are a huge pool of cheap labor.( Now illegal cheap labor but still cheap labor)
  4. They do set up their businesses in areas where one would consider more dangerous. (since living next to one of these areas, without them the town would fall apart)

Bad Reasons

  1. They do push things with the extra strain on things like health care and cause the prices to go up.
  2. The labor they have to do although difficult would cause businesses to play by the laws of our country if legal.
  3. Jobs are being taken away from people who are more apt to speak up if something is wrong throwing a road block to shady dealings in business as a whole.
  4. Because they are illegal in a sense it makes them a wounded animal, they have nothing they can go or do without going back to the place you do not want to go. (And we all know how dangerous wounded animals are)

Yeah, the worst thing that could happen to the US is if it became a mixture of people from different countries!

Hav eto remember some people flee thedir contuntries as refugees often with fake paper work. Are you goin to deny someone safety for their own life?

7 Name: Citizen : 2007-02-21 23:52 ID:wPQo0o1p

well, sometimes that might be necessary. chances are, if the US made immigration any easier, we would see more and more people flocking there. it would overload their infrastructure.

As a UK citizen I'll offer up my two cents...
Immigrants? Yeah, they're fine - because they're legitamately in the country and they're working and putting into the country. The only thing that they're doing is living here. It's not like (unlike BNP supporters and dickheads think) this island is going to sink because there are "Oh so many people on it".
But the intergration into this country is really low level - I mean, people come over here and don't need to learn how to speak English because they will get translators and specialist schools. If they want to go to a very specific denomination of their faith they'll have no real trouble finding a place to worship. They'll be able to find cultural markets and places where they can buy food from their ethnic background's culture and all of that is awesome - good for them!
If you've fled from your country, you are now in England, not in the country you're from. These people have every right to be proud of their heritage, but I sometimes feel (being the child of one 1st gen immigrant, making me "2nd gen", I guess)like these people have every oppourtunity to learn English and socialise with people besides their own ethnic group and get not so much Westernised as more aware of the place in which they live and learn to appreciate it and celebrate our culture (which is theirs if they live here and become a citizen of our country!) as well as theirs.
So many immigrants get a sort of "culture shock", and feel isolated and all that, but by just gaining a little more awareness of the country they're residing in they could understand some of the things they see that needlessly cause them offence and make them do things which in my mind just seem foolish or ignorant.

Tl;dr: Immigrants need more open minds, and so do people who are native to this country.

>>10 here,
Also, I hear those stories about illegal immigrants and a bit of me feels like these guys must be totally badass to spend like, a week on a truck pooing through a hole cut in the floor of the storage container.
As long as they are genuinely fleeing from something, I think that they should be able to try and gain asylum here. Contrary to belief we're not all bad, the housing isn't in complete jeopardy, they won't TAKE OUR JERBS, more they'll do the jobs we WON'T do.

I sympathize with illegal immigrants. Why should I waste my only life vegetating in a retarded country, when I can improve my lot by moving to a richer country?

And if the people of that country don't feel like sharing their riches and opportunities, and would much prefer to keep me vegetating in my corner, then screw them. As long as I'm not hurting or robbing anyone, I won't feel a shred of guilt by moving in even if not granted permission ^_^

I don't like the mentality of most immigrants, legal or illegal.

They come to our country and stay in their own little foreign groups continuing to speak their own foreign language and creating their own little foreign communities (see: Chinatown for example).

Isn't the point of moving to another country to get AWAY from where you were? And if you are getting away and want to stay in the same sort of community you were in - too bad. Move to a country that's more similar to your own. Don't come to our country and change it into your old one. That's bullshit. You amalgamate into OUR community and adopt OUR culture.

How is a country supposed to keep it's national identity when it's over-run by foreigners and no longer resembles the country after which it's named?

I just recently arrived back in my homeland of New Zealand, and while passing through the airport, I could have sworn my plane had been diverted to some Asian country! It was fucking ridiculous. The people working in the airport (the very people who ESTABLISH THE FIRST IMPRESSION ON VISITORS) could hardly speak English properly and every fucking sign had Chinese on it!

I have absolutely NO problem with Asians immigrating (yes, it's mainly Asians doing this) to New Zealand, but for fucks sake - learn some english and don't make this country a tiny Asia.

Mexican politicians needs to take better care of their people and actually CLEAN THEIR FUCKING PIPES. They can't/won't do that, so they encourage people to emmigrate to the US and clog up other people's pipes. Mexico dumps economically deprived citizens to a foreign contry, illegal immigrants in the US deprive legal citizens (including legal immigrants) of jobs while being paid far less, and that money goes back to Mexico to help economically deprived families (it's like hooking up your toilets to your neighbor's septic tank WHILE wiring your electricity to said neighbor's meter). And look at the state of the US and look at the state of Mexico. The US has an economic clusterfuck on their hands while Mexico is still an economic clusterfuck.

There are only two solutions: Either the US 1) invades Mexico or 2) builds a bridge over the US connecting Mexico to Canada. srsbsns.

You talk about immigrants coming to US and Canada, but everyone in those countries are immigrants, except the Native Americans and Native Canadians/Eskimos. New Zealand's true people are the Maoris and in Australia it's the Aborigines.

Hypocritical nonsense. If you dont like immigrants coming to these countries, then set an example by going back to your ancestral homelands first!

You forget that they were beaten down and given citizenship as a get well present. The issue is NOT "they were here first and us second" but "we've got citizenship and they don't and we can't get them to pay their fair share in taxes that they are leeching from us nor can we know where they are if they will/have committed a crime." If illegals got their papers and paid their taxes then all would be fair and done, as we've got a record on them. Case and point: STFU and go back to the Africa if you don't know what the hell you are talking about.

21 Name: Anonymous Speaker : 2009-02-26 22:26 ID:8dkz39LR

Yeah very funny. NOT. I know damned well what I'm talking about. It is your baseless self-righteousness and racial superiority complex that is the problem. What goes around comes around. HAH!

So you have Apache citizenship do you? Or is it Maori citizenship? Or Aborigine citizenship? Or Aztec citizenship? Oh wait, they've all been killed off and their land stolen from them. So you give yourself citizenship in a country whose people you have annihilated, and then don't allow anyone else to come to those countries? Lol how deluded can you get?!

At least be thankful that this current wave of immigrants to these countries aren't enslaving the population, slaughtering them, raping them, spreading disease to them, destroying their civilizations, pillaging their wealth, killing their leaders, converting their religion at the sword, burning their crops, or poisoning their wells.

Those are just a few of the things that European invaders did to the natives of North America, South America, Australia, New Zealand, and even the far more advanced Asian countries. Be grateful these new immigrants are so evil.

And why were we able to do that in the past? Were we more intelligent? Were we superior? No. We were just better at spreading death and destruction on unsuspecting innocent peoples who were far more civilized and would not have even dreamed of such wanton destruction. No wonder the Ancient Romans and Greeks called the rest of Europe Barbarians. It looks like things haven't changed much in some individuals of their descendants.

I am so ashamed that there are still people like you living in the Western countries. You embarass me. Thank god there are so few of you left these days. Why don't you go to Alaska and STFU? A barren frozen wasteland is a fitting home for irrelevant people like you. Thanks. :)

You're train of thought flew off the rails and into the neighborhood killing dozens and injuring hundreds for falling prey to the sheeple-producing hippies. The issue is NOT about race. Not anymore. It's in the past and dead. You're even more racist than I because of your archaic and closed-minded thoughts about race as the ultimate factor in deciding who to pay respects to.

I will repeat myself with simpler wording: The issue is not who was here first (in regards to you, this would imply ethnicity). The issue is who is here NOW and how to protect them (for the idiots: citizens, people of their respective countries). My concern is for the security (both financial and social) of those who are citizens of the country rather than security for you racist minority-superiority fucks. GTFO of your house and make more friends aside from your grandparents who poisoned your mind with victimization and meekness.

Reread the second paragraph twice before responding. I know you can't comprehend the sentences you type out are ultimately false in regards to reality. I know you can't understand what it is like to look at the world in colour, as you are stuck in black and white. Deal with it, fucking hypocrit racist.

You said: "The issue is "we've got citizenship and they don't and we can't get them to pay their fair share in taxes that they are leeching from us nor can we know where they are if they will/have committed a crime." If illegals got their papers and paid their taxes then all would be fair and done, as we've got a record on them. Case and point: STFU and go back to the Africa if you don't know what the hell you are talking about."

That is the worst piece of debate I have ever seen. It is a nonsensical rant. It's hard to even decide what exactly your point is. So are you in support of giving current "illegals" as you call them, citizenship? Why not give them an amnesty and let them have citizenship? I didn't realise the issue that white supremacists had was one of a beaureaucratic nature, about having the right documentation. Quick! Someone tell the ACLU: racists will STFU if every one just has citizenship - get those application forms out there ASAP and they will disappear!

But if you are now repeating the same message as above, with some slightly better grammar and the use of punctuation, all I say is that there is no point in repeating your rubbish, like the Nazis did, hoping anyone else will believe it.

You are unable to carry out a rational debate, always resorting to four letter acronyms. You are unable to counter my points, and so you go off on random tangents. You are self righteous and arrogant, without limit, and as always with white supremacists, you believe you are divinely led perfect beings.

You say in your attempted defence (#23) that race etc is "past and dead" - damned right, you've killed off the other races who were the original inhabitants of the Americas, Auz and NZ, so they are dead. You then say that the argument is about what exactly? Citizenship? But as I already said, and which you fail to counter, you never got permission to be citizens of these countries. Instead you committed genocide against the original inhabitants and then appointed yourself a citizen of their nation. You have absolutely no right to judge who is worthy of being a citizen of the country now.

How convenient that you are able to set the start point to whenever you want. I guess that in 50 years time if occupying forces are still in Iraq, you will say that the Iraqis are taking over "your" country and taking "your" jobs because for you, the issue of who invaded is "past and dead" and you are talking about the "security of those citizens of the country" who you appointed to be invading whites. You display absurdity to its utmost limit.

It is you who is stuck in a small-minded, small-numbered community of racist supremacists, who have no real achievements and no real superiority except in the area of how to annihilate other unsuspecting peoples and conquering their countries. People like you are morally (and now with the loss of cheap loans, financially) corrupt. You exist in a world of moral bankruptcy and blind hatred. That is why you suffer so much, every single day. Even when you try to vent your frustrations (of your own bringing) on the internet, good citizens like me are here to point out to you the evil of your ways and thoughts, and so even here in the digital world you can't find your racist ignorant bliss that you so desperately strive for.

The thing is, anyone with a rational mind can see that we conquered the Americas, Australia, New Zealand, Africa and even parts of Asia, illegally. Did they ask to become part of our empires? Did they want to be turned into slaves? Did they ask to be killed off, their cultures destroyed and their civilizations smashed? No, No and No. Therefore, it is a perfect example of commupance that racists like you have to be so petrified of the "flood" of people with different skin colour and religion coming into your country now. Normal people celebrate diversity. Small minded idiots are scared of having divine punishment, not for your ancestors' actions (those aren't your personal fault), but for continuing to live evil and believe in such evil as you clearly show here.

And just so people are clear about this: I am white of European descent. I am ashamed of what we did in the past. And I am even more ashamed that there are others of my race who still hold antiquated, corrupt, evil and most importantly WRONG views about other people, simply because they have a different skin colour. I guess you were a Palin-lover too. How'd that work out for you?

I am not wasting any more time on you, it is not worth trying to teach a donkey to understand basic logic. Since people like you only understand one language, in summary: You FAIL. STFU and GTFO :D

Who cares? It's hilarious.

Also, >>24 and >>25 as it's clearly rantage about how victimized, weak and backwards European people have become.

You fail to understand what "illegal" means. It means "unlawful". An Illegal Immigrant is an immigrant who has come into a country while disregarding laws pertaining to immigration. Illegal IS the proper way to describe them. I do not support amnesty as it would blanket the entire population of illegal immigrants, good and bad. I'd rather have them get papers and background checks and get through their process. Background checks are there to keep criminals out.

I will revisit one of the traits I noticed about you: Your thinking is stuck in the past. Ancient. Archaeic. Old. How you keep on going back to how Eurpeans fucked over foreign lands that have now become independant countries isn't going to change anything. Stop crying and get over it. You're three-hundred years too late to do anything of any moral value.

If you want to know a bit about myself before I was given your bullshit about my thinking being racist: I am half white and my one of my parents immigrated to the country LEGALLY (the other was natural). I grew up in several multi-cultural communities in SoCal throughout my life. I know what I'm talking about. So again, I will go back to my four letter acronyms: STFU GTFO.

I personally have no problem with "LEGAL IMMIGRANTS", However, I do have a problem with illegal immigrants. I have this problem because they have broken the law. There are billions of people from third world countries all over the world, that does not mean you can invade countries without going through the legal process. Immigrants from other countries other than MEXICO,go through the proper process, why can't Mexicans? I am tired hearing that Mexicans are hard workers and Americans are lazy bull crap! The truth of the matter is Mexicans want Money!!!! Yes, the will be at work everyday because it is a guarenteed paycheck to funnel back to their home countries! There quality of work is poor, their customer service is poor, they have no respect for Americans, American Laws , or the American Flag. They march on American soil waving Mexican flags demanding American rights. If you want sympathy try waving an American flag. How can you hang a Mexican flag on top of an American Flag on the same flag pole, in America, plain disrespect. Sorry to all you blinded folks, this is their plan to come her and have as many babies as they can, remember power comes in numbers,and take their "so called land " back. That is why they will not assimalate. They will not learn to speak the language, they rather work under the table and make tax free dollars, go to any emergency room they are flood with illegal immigrants, whose footing the bill? You and I the taxpayer, That goes for schools, social services and other services. If Illegals want to be in the US, contribute to society and stop using our society. I am not afraid of being a multicultural country, people this is a planned takeover we are just to politically correct to see it!!!! Like a hispanic co-worker told me a few years back, spanish will be the official language in the very near future.T o the big corporations money isn't everything, what about patriotism!!! Don't let greed ruin America.

If we live in a world that is governed by religion and corrupt governments, whose power was attained through systemic victimization of more peaceful cultures, how can anyone expect those who struggle today to respect "our" laws?( foriegners who live in countries that are more repressive, countries that use their citizens like slave labour, so westerners can have more "stuff)

We live within a Win/Lose paradigmn that promotes instability, and people will migrate where they will have a better life, better opportunities. Just like the european settlers came to the N.A. Continent. But what happened? The Chruch and Monarchy brutalized and used the native residents for their own gain, then set about on the usual genocidal path.

Expecting lawful behaviour within a system that is unjust, feuled by favourtism, greed and arrogance, is totally illogical.
