    Email sent to me today...:


    This was written by a Mexican who is now a naturalized US Citizen, and I think it's a great explanation of the illegal immigration issue.



    Here is the quote:


    "If you had tickets to a sports event, concert, Disneyland , or for an airline flight, and when you got to your assigned seat you found someone else was in that seat, what would you do?

    You would call for a person in charge of ticket checking and have the person in your seat removed. You would properly
    be asked to show your ticket, and you would gladly and proudly do so, for you have bought and paid for that seat. The person in your seat would also be asked for a ticket, which they would not be able to produce. They would be
    called "gate crashers" and they would properly be removed.

    Now in this huge stadium called the USA we have had millions of gate crashers. We have been asking security to check for tickets and remove the gate crashers. We have been asking security to have better controls in checking at
    the door. We have asked security to lock the back doors. Security has failed us. They are still looking the other way. They are afraid to ask to see the tickets. Many people say there is unlimited seating, and whether there is or not, no one should be allowed in for free while the rest of us pay full
    price!

    In "section AZ", of "Stadium USA ", we have had enough of the failures of Security. We have decided to do our own ticket checking, and properly remove those who do not have tickets. Now it seems very strange to me that so many people in the other 49 "sections", and even many in our own "section" do not want tickets checked, or even to be asked to show their ticket! Even the head of Security is chastising us, while not doing his own job which he has sworn to do.

    My own ticket has been bought and paid for, so I am proudly going to show it when asked to do so. I have a right to my seat, and I want the gate crashers to be asked to show their tickets too. The only reason that I can imagine
    anyone objecting to being asked for their ticket is that they are in favor of gate crashing, and all of the illegal activities that go with it, such as drug smuggling, gang wars, murder, human smuggling for profit, and many more illegal and inhumane acts that we are trying to prevent with our new
    legislation. Is that what I am hearing from all of the protestors such as Phoenix Mayor Gordon, US Rep. Grijalva, even President Obama?

    If you are not in favor of showing tickets, (proof of citizenship, passport, green card, or other
    legal document) when asked, as I would do proudly, then you must be condoning those illegal activities."


    Written by a US Citizen, Globe, Arizona .


    This makes perfect sense to me. What do you think?


    Since Obama has never shown his ticket I guess he feels obligated to not ask others to show theirs.

    While it is a great analogy and perfectly true, the liberals will say that the person is not actually sitting in your seat. He is squating on the floor next to your seat and he is in need and we must help. What harm is he doing to you, personally?

    Of course that is not exactly true. He is working (probably off the books), having anchor babies, using health and education facilities (free)and costing the seat-holder huge amounts in increased taxes.

    All of this means nothing to the liberals who only see the interloper as a poor, disadvantaged human being. It doesn't matter that his poverty is caused by a corrupt government which has been so for over 100 years. What he doesn't say is that this gate-crasher has entered via an illegal act and compromises our security and sovereignty. He is a danger to us all and this must be stopped. In human terms, we all feel for the poor peasant who comes to America to escape his past life but we are a country of laws and those laws must be respected. If they are not, why would they come here in the first place?

    Bob, I always knew you were a smart guy! Excellent analogy. Even the Liberal pukes should have no problem understanding this one.

    Do you suppose that accepting a few dollars/hour less for their labor has anything to do with it??? Or perhaps you next door neighbor who owns a small business and employs them???
