The Illegal Marches

So, there were marches all over America by illegal immigrents this weekend. Yay for illegal immigration. I'm sure you've all seen the pictures of masses of people crowding the streets and waving flags.

Mexican flags.

Here's my question - if you're in America, and you want to stay in America, and you want to prove that you're just as American as people who actually did the paperwork to come here WITHOUT breaking the law, well then....

WHY THE HELL ARE YOU WAVING A GOD-DAMNED MEXICAN FLAG?!

I mean, think about it! What kind of message did all those flag-waving non-english-sign waving people send to America? Did they send a message that said "Hey, we like America, we want to stay in America, and we want to become Americans!"

Or did they say "Screw you, we're Mexicans, just shut the hell up and give us our welfare and free medical services! Gimme your tax dollars you greedy gringos!"

Here's my advice to all those illegal immigrants who are demanding the benifits of being an American citizen without doing a damn thing to BECOME a citizen - if you want the majority of Americans to welcome you into this country, there are a few things you can do:

1) DON'T ENTER THIS COUNTRY ILLEGALLY! FOLLOW THE DAMN LAWS!

2) Barring that, when you get there, don't hold huge rallies with Mexican flags and signs written in Spanish. Try learning English. Try appreciating the country that you broke the law to get into, rather than demanding that WE, the country you've just illegally entered, cater to your illegal ass.

3) If you want to stay here, then join OUR culture. Don't come in and sneer at us gringos and demand that we do the hat dance for you. We gringos live in and make this country such a wonderful place. And if you don't think that this country is wonderful, why are you here? If you don't like America, LEAVE! We won't punish you if you decide that you want to live somewhere else!

Gah. At this point, I say build the damn wall. Lock the border down hard. And then start deporting anyone who broke the law while entering this country.

Let them get back in the legal way. And make sure they have a tax registration number when they come back in.
